How Sure Are You?

The issue of faith is of supreme importance. 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). To support this truth, the Hebrews writer used

Introspection

Some people may look at the title of this article and wonder what exactly is “introspection”? Do not let the size of the word confuse you or intimidate you. “Introspection” is simply the process by which we examine ourselves inwardly. As a matter of fact, “introspection” is something in which the Christian should regularly engage.

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 Conversion of Saul of Tarsus

Throughout the book of Acts, there are different accounts of individuals that were saved. One such person was a man named Saul. We are first introduced to Saul near the end of Acts chapter seven. An angry mob of Jews were attacking the faithful preacher, Stephen. During that ordeal, the Bible records, “And cast him

John – A Baptizer

The accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are valuable records of the life of Jesus. However, included in those writings, we also find information about others who were contemporary with Christ. One of those individuals was a man named John. For many people, he is known as “John the Baptist”. It would be just

What Happens When We Die?

I remember a fellow preacher once saying something like this: “If you don’t see angels after you die, then you’re in trouble”. Sadly, there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about death and what happens after. Hopefully some of that confusion can be erased by a study of some Scriptures. First of all, what

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). Another is confession of our faith (Rom. 10:9-10). Still another is the command to be baptized for the remission of sins(Acts 2:38;

How Far Will You Go With Jesus?

How wonderful and encouraging it is when a person makes the choice to become a Christian. That person has come to a decision that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Also, that person has decided to change his thinking and his life. He is so confident in his faith that he will verbally

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

Born Again

John chapter three is one of the most referenced segments of Scripture in all of the Bible.  Of course it contains the familiar verse, John 3:16, but there is much more in that chapter than just that one verse.  At the beginning of the chapter we are introduced to a Pharisee named Nicodemus.  Nicodemus came
