Can I Know That I Am Saved?

          One of the things that seemingly torments many children of God is whether or not they can know if they are truly saved.  This is one of the saddest conditions in which a Christian can find himself.  Getting up in the morning and wondering if I am okay.  Going to bed at night and

Being Like Jesus

Have you ever thought about what the world would be like if everyone thought and acted like Jesus?  Imagine the kindness that would be shown.  Imagine the love that would be demonstrated.  Imagine the peacefulness that would exist.  While there are some individuals that have no interest in thinking and acting like Jesus, there are

All Things New

Jesus said, “And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” Revelation 21:5.  Every person likes new things. Having new things keeps our economy moving. We often become bored with the old things and buy new ones.

Turning To God

             The prophet Ezra said, “Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance. For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of

Facing Problems Bigger Than Ourselves

            All of us go through things we did not think we would. Even some of us have gone through things we did not believe that we could. Where do we turn when we are out of our league? How do you and I cope with the fears beyond our courage to fight? How do

Christ Gives Peace

The Word of God says, “Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he

Abortion And The Bible

            The Holy Spirit said, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2:7. According to the latest statistics, Planned Parenthood alone uses our tax dollars and aborts an unborn child every ninety-seven seconds. An

What Have You Done?

             In Genesis 3:13 we find the first question God ever asked a woman. “And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.” This question took place after Eve had eaten of the forbidden fruit and after

Harmony in the Congregation

            When the congregation has harmony, we are “…having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind….in lowliness of mind…esteem[ing] other better than themselves. Look[ing] not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.” Philippians 2:2-4. We are to have this same mind-set because it was

Joy In Our Trials

            James writes to the “brethren” showing that we are part of God’s family here on earth. Cf. Ephesians 3:15. We become a part of the family of God when we obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ by hearing, Romans 10:17, believing, John 8:24, repenting, Acts 17:30, confessing Christ, Acts 8:37, and by being immersed
