How do you get to know someone? You talk with them, don’t you? The truth is, God has spoken to all people in nature by the things that are made. Creation tells us God exists and he is powerful. He is not only clearly perceived in the things that are made but also the knowledgeContinue reading “God Speaks In Creation”
Some love the aroma of fresh brewed coffee in the morning and most despise the stench of a teenagers unwashed socks. Regarding worship, the Bible speaks about the fragrances God loves and hates. Remember, it is your sacred duty and privilege to worship God. He has told us what he loves and hates in worship.Continue reading “The Aroma of true Worship”
Hebrews 10:25 “Let us not [forsake] the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but [exhort] one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” Recently I read an account of Benjamin Franklin publishing a cartoon called “Join or Die”. Franklin was arguing that the colonies needed toContinue reading “Church Attendence”
Have you ever done something wrong and wanted to hit the reset button of life? Christians often think of justification as receiving a spiritual blank slate. A state of blamelessness as if they had never committed any sin. When God justifies Christians, He declares us righteous in Christ. We are immediately in full possession ofContinue reading “Justified by Faith.”
I met a man who didn’t believe in absolute truth. I asked how he knew that statement was true. He couldn’t answer! For many, truth is one’s own interpretation of reality.

I’m not sure if people deny hell because they are trying to protect God from the appearance of being unjust or not. They say, why would a loving God punish finite sin with infinite torture?

Victory did not come because of a change I was smart enough to make. God caused me to change my desire for Him (John 6:44). If I used a scoreboard analogy, the leading score belongs to God and me zero. He wins every time He chooses to save somebody (Matt. 11:27: Eph. 1:4; Duet. 7:6-7)! I have total assurance of victory through Christ Alone!
