Three Times

I would like to believe that no matter what man does to me, I will not deny that I know Jesus.  I imagine that is how Peter must have felt at one time too.  However, Jesus knew better.  Before His crucifixion, Jesus explained to Simon Peter, “…behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he

A Woman Taken In Adultery

It is truly a blessing to have copies of the Bible that we can read and study.  In the Word of God, we are told of many different things that have happened over the history of mankind.  Some of those things are great accomplishments, while others are terrible failures.  When Jesus was alive on the

Burden Bearing

Contrary to what some have said, the Bible does not contradict Itself.  The beauty and the wonder of the Bible’s accuracy is truly something to behold.  However, there are times that some opponents and skeptics will present what they believe to be evidence of contradiction.  Take for example two particular verses in Galatians chapter six. 

Why We Should Rejoice

It is truly saddening to know that there are so many people bowed down in sorrow and dismay. This sadness is not just found in those in the world, but also it is found amongst members of the body of Christ. While I am not trying to diminish anyone’s situation in life, Christians should be,

Growing In Christ – Part Three

               With the maturation of a child of God, there should be the desire to become more and more like Christ.  Paul explained this when he wrote, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not

Growing In Christ – Part Two

                              The next part of growth that Peter mentioned was for first century Christians to “have compassion one of another” (1 Pet. 3:8).  Every Christian has his own temptations and difficulties.  Recognizing that truth helps us to sympathize and empathize with our

But We See Jesus

          The writer of the book of Hebrews did a masterful job of contrasting the differences between the Old and New Laws.  Throughout the letter, numerous examples are given indicating the superiority of the Law of Christ over the Law of Moses.  This was no doubt extremely helpful at its time

As a Nurse Cherisheth Her Children

When one studies the works of the apostle Paul, it becomes very apparent that he had a great deal of concern and love for the ones with which he worked. One of those groups was the church of the Thessalonians. Along with Silvanus and Timotheus, Paul expressed his care for the congregation when he wrote,

Friendship-Flourishing Or Forsaking?

Friendship is one of the many blessings that God has given to mankind. When an individual is blessed to find a true friend, then he has found something worth more than gold. The Bible indicates “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother”

Love Enough to Hate

Under the idea of inclusion and equality, the world has done a good job of conditioning our society that there should be no “hate”. While I readily admit that some forms of “hate” are appalling and unrighteous, the Bible does not teach that everything should be accepted just because it is widely embraced. It might
