The Yoke Of Bondage

It is disappointing that at this stage of human history, many people are truly ignorant of God’s Word. The average man on the street struggles with some of the most basic truths in Scripture. It is reminiscent of the time when Hosea lived. He wrote, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou

The Grace Of God

One of the simplest, but often misunderstood attributes of God is His grace. The Psalmist wrote, “…the LORD is gracious and full of compassion” (Psm. 111:4). That indicates that God bestows much on mankind that man does not deserve. If man received what he deserves, then mankind would have been destroyed a long time ago.

Faithful Unto Death

The life of a Christian is portrayed by Paul as a “warfare” (1 Timothy 1:18). As with any “warfare”, a Christian should understand that there is the possibility of casualties and deaths. Paul himself would live his life in such a way that his life was taken due to his faithfulness to God. Paul’s courage

Obeying What Is Commanded

It truly is amazing how many times mankind has been unwilling simply to obey what is commanded of them. All the way in the beginning, Adam and Eve were guilty of such. The LORD commanded “…Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and

The Foolishness Of God

Before we delve much further into this discussion, I believe that it is good to explain that Paul was not insulting, demeaning, or blaspheming God. Instead, Paul was using a type of sarcasm on the recipients of his letter at Corinth. Truth be told, there is nothing foolish about God. God is the opposite of

Time is No Factor

It is important to recognize that God is not limited by the subject of time. Oftentimes, human beings feel the crunch of deadlines or appointments. This has never been, nor ever will be, a problem for God. On the contrary, time would not even exist if God had not created the physical universe. “In the

Nothing Wavering

One of the absolute necessities to be a Christian is faith. The writer of Hebrews stated, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Heb. 11:6). With that being said, just

Blessed And Thankful

It is good to be reminded frequently just how blessed Christians really are. Christians are given all spiritual blessings (Eph. 1:3). Likewise, God blesses the faithful with the necessities of this life (Matt. 6:24-34). Above all men, we should be extremely thankful. Sadly though, there are times when we lose sight of our blessings. By

Light Afflictions

When one studies the life of Paul, it is hard not to come away with admiration for his great dedication. When he persecuted the church, Paul believed wholeheartedly that he was doing the will of God. “And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God

The Immortal Soul

When addressing a question about marriage and the resurrection, our Lord took the time to explain the immortality of the soul. “Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection…” had presented a scenario that they apparently thought was sufficient to cause Jesus trouble (Luke 20:27). The situation was such that a woman had been married seven times. All
