  • The Book of Life

    The apostle Paul wrote a letter to the Philippians.  As he began to close his letter, he wrote several personal notes to individuals that he knew.  Consider what he wrote in Philippians 4:3 “And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the […]

  • Eternal Punishment

    It is clear from the Bible that one of two destinations awaits each person after this life.  Paul wrote about the judgement of God in Romans 2:6-11 “who ‘will render to each one according to his deeds’: eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but […]

  • The Furtherance Of The Gospel

    At the time that the Apostle Paul wrote the Philippian letter, he was imprisoned in Rome for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He did not have the freedom to visit new places to spread the gospel.  He could not go back to existing churches to strengthen them and help them grow their congregations.  He […]

  • Imitating God

    God wants us to imitate Him.  Ephesians 5:1 “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.”  Young children learn by imitating their parents.  We learn how to walk, how to talk, how to use a fork or spoon, and many other things by seeing and hearing our parents do these things.  There may be instruction […]

  • It’s All About God

    Most of us are very familiar with the Lord’s Prayer. Matthew 6:9-13 “In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our […]

  • Is Anything Too Hard For The Lord?

    The Lord had given Abraham a promise that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky.  But Abraham was near one hundred years old and he still didn’t have a son through his wife Sarah.  In Genesis 18, we read that the Lord appeared to him by the terebinth trees of […]

  • Rejoice

    Do you have joy in your life?  Joy is a feeling of extreme happiness or cheerfulness, especially related to the acquisition or expectation of something good.  To rejoice is to be very happy, to be delighted, to feel joy.  What gives you joy?  Perhaps you have joy when you have accomplished a special goal or […]

  • Praying For Others

    God wants us to pray to Him.  We are even told to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).  But I ask you to consider your prayers.  What do you pray about?  Do you mostly pray that God would solve problems in your life or show you what to do?  Do you also thank God for […]

  • Cast Your Burden On The Lord

    Is there something in your life that weighs you down and takes much of the joy out of your life?  Maybe it is a chronic physical problem.  Maybe it is the consequences of something you did earlier in your life.  Maybe it is a difficult relationship you deal with.  Maybe it is the prejudices or […]
