  • Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

    Jesus was nearing the end of His earthly ministry.  Matthew 20:17-19 “Now Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples aside on the road and said to them, ‘Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will […]

  • A Life To The Praise And Glory Of God

    The apostle Paul prayed the following prayer for those at Philippi.  Philippians 1:9-11 “And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled […]

  • Ministering to the Saints

    Every one of us has received help from other people.  You have received help from your parents, your instructors, your friends and perhaps many other people.  You have even received help from God and Christ.   Romans 5:6-8 “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for […]

  • Fear of Death

    When you were young, it probably seemed like you would live forever.  People rarely think about dying when they are young and healthy.  But when you grow older or have a serious disease such as cancer, you realize that life is short.  When a friend or loved one passes, you are reminded that you also […]

  • Worthy Conduct

    Sometimes we see people in positions of authority that do things that are inappropriate for the positions that they hold.  Maybe it is a government official that accepts bribes or spends public funds for his own benefit.  Maybe it is a police officer who violates the law.  Maybe it is a teacher that has an […]

  • Pursue Peace

    Jesus said in Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”  As a child of God, you should be a peacemaker.  That means that you seek to live at peace with others and work to resolve conflicts between your neighbors, family members, and fellow Christians.  The opposite of a […]

  • Hospitality

    You are instructed in Romans 12:13 to be “given to hospitality.”  That implies that you should be known as a hospitable person.  What is hospitality?  It literally means to have a love of strangers.  Hebrews 13:2 “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”  In other words, don’t […]

  • Bless and Do Not Curse

    When we spend time around fellow Christians, we should be treating each other with Christian love.  We should be kind, courteous, considerate and caring for one another.  However, when we are around people of the world, they can be rude, selfish, boastful, inconsiderate and even hateful; they may cut in front of you, hurt you, […]

  • Pleasing God

    Jesus always worked to please His Father.  John 8:29 “And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.”  When He was on the mountain of transfiguration, Matthew 17:5b “a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of […]

  • Subject To The Government

    As a Christian, you are a member of the Kingdom of Heaven.  There are righteous rules and commands that you follow.  The Kingdom is ruled by our Holy God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  They are righteous, loving, merciful and all wise and they rule with justice.  Since you live in the world, you are […]
