Are You Sure That You Are Saved?

Many sermons and articles have been preached and written to instruct a sinner on how he can be saved.  God’s plan of salvation is clearly revealed in the New Testament.  If an accountable person hears the Word of God, believes Jesus is the Son of God, repents of past sins, confesses that Jesus is the

Fully Persuaded

Are you confident that God will bring to pass what He has said?  Is there any doubt in your mind?  What about your sins being forgiven?  What about Jesus returning?  Will we really be judged?  Just how sure are you?  I want to encourage you to have no doubt whatsoever!            God is trustworthy, regardless

Excuse Me

          Try to put yourself in the position of first century Jews.  For years, you have been living under the Law of Moses and waiting for the coming of the Messiah.  Granted, you have likely been wrong in your expectations, but nonetheless, you wait.  Then one day, you hear a man from Nazareth teach

Spiritual Worship-Part Five

The final act of worship that we will notice is the action of giving/contribution.  Christians should know that all of the blessings that we have are from God.  James wrote, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow

Handle With Care

It is very clear that Paul loved the church in Corinth.  More than once, Paul did what he could to teach, encourage, and admonish those brethren.  When he did such, Paul was very careful that he did not rely on his own feelings and opinions.  Instead, Paul utilized the best resource that was available to

Justice And Vengeance

No matter how many times I read it, the Sermon on the Mount is still so powerful and useful.  Whether it is the beatitudes at the beginning, or “the wise man building his house on the rock” at the end, the Sermon on the Mount still stands as a masterpiece.  Let us take the opportunity

Thy First Love

            The book of Revelation is a great study about the victory that faithful Christians enjoy.  In the very first verse, the apostle John made it clear that the book is “signified” (Rev. 1:1).  As one will notice, the root of “signified” is sign.  John was letting the reader know that the things contained in

Exceeding Great and Precious Promises

Some of you have lived in a time where a man’s word was his bond.  An affirmation and a handshake were suitable to seal a deal.  In today’s society, with lying being so rampant and commonplace, we sometimes do not know who, or what, to believe.  With that being said, I am absolutely certain that

Chosen Of God

It is quite possible that you have heard that Israel is God’s chosen people.  While that is true, we need to define just what Israel was and is.  First of all, we need to understand that there is a difference between the Israel of old and the Israel of today.  The Israel of old is

Walk And Beware

The life of a Christian is indeed blessed.  Having obeyed the Gospel, the child of God enjoys all of the privileges that come with such.  Take for instance the following examples:  forgiveness of sins, reconciliation, redemption, sanctification, justification, and all spiritual blessings.  However, with all of the blessings, the Christian must remember that obeying the
