The Fruit of the Spirit-Part 1

The apostle Paul, while writing to the churches of Galatia, contrasted “the works of the flesh” and “the fruit of the Spirit” (Gal. 5:22). “The works of the flesh” are those things from which we should abstain: “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred,

Vaccination Information

Have you ever tried to tell someone something important, but for whatever reason, the person seemed uninterested? If you have, then you can understand the frustration that comes with such. For generations, God had been telling the Israelites/Jews what would happen to them if they lived sinfully. Yet, time after time it seemed that those

The Operation of God

The odds are extremely high that at some point in our lives we will need an operation/surgery.

Understanding Repentance

When studying the Bible, we come across certain things that must be done in order to obtain salvation. One of which is faith that Jesus is the Son ofGod (Rom. 10:17; John 8:24).

Answer or Answer Not

One of the things that a child of God must do is learn how to teach other people. After all, the Great Commission teaches us that we are to “…Go ye into the all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). The challenge can sometimes be that we do not properly
