To Love God is to “Serve Others”

Matthew 23:11 (KJV) But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. One of the things Christ had to confront His disciples was their mentality and mindset about greatness. They were still holding on to the mentality of their environment as it defined what constitutes greatness. Their mindset was wrapped up in thinking that a great person was or is that person who others served. One who had great material wealth. One who commanded such influences and affluence.…

True Faith in Christ is “Within You (Heart)”

Matthew 5:8 (KJV) Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Jesus Christ came into the world to change lives and one of the ways that He did that was by what He taught. Here Christ challenged the concept of “True Faith” in God as held by the Jewish people during His days on earth. To the Jews, then true faith was more of an external thing. They held onto ceremonies and rituals of the Jewish religion as…

What does it means “to seek God”?

Isaiah 26:9 (KJV) With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. The deepest desires of our hearts are seen by the pursuit of our lives. The psalmist by the Holy Spirit revealed what our deepest desire should be and that is to seek for the Lord. Seeking God is an honor.…

God’s kind of GIVING.

Matthew 6:3 (KJV) But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:  There are many forms of giving in the Bible. In each instance, the Bible is very clear about what qualifies a giving that is both honored by God and that is pleasing to Him. Our gifts are mostly an expression of gratitude towards God and God is most interested in the motives behind the giving as well as the heart condition…

By Grace we are saved, through faith…………….

Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. Salvation is based on the finished work of Christ. We receive the gift of eternal life by grace through the finished work of Christ. We are recipients of God’s goodness and grace because we did not naturally qualify for anything that God has but by His love and mercy, He…

The Righteousness of the Gospel

John 3:17 (KJV) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. The purpose for which Christ came into the world is obvious, and it is to that purpose we are called His followers. Therefore, we preach the Gospel in such a way that its content remains true while its presentation is not in betrayal of Christ’s purpose. We are not called to bring condemnation to people,…

Thanksgiving: The Believer’s Way of Life

Psalm 100:4 (KJV) Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. The approach determines response. It is a spiritual and natural law that the way and manner in which you approach someone determines the response you will receive. God is both our Father and our God; we, therefore, must understand the necessity of approaching Him as such. Reverence, Praise, and Worship are biblical and reveal manners by which we…

God’s Grace is Sufficient for you

2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Christianity is not an immunity from the challenges of life. The profound thing about the Bible is that it is Truth, and it declares and reveals practical principles of life. God has never failed to declare to us that…

Wisdom for Godly Living

Proverbs 13:20 (KJV)  He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. The Bible presents to us practically every answer we need in handling life circumstances and issues. The power of companionship or friendship can’t be denied. Companions and friendships influence our lives in ways that we cannot deny. So we are encouraged to understand how the choice we make per companionship or friendship ultimately affects our lives. Certain factors may contribute…

God wants you to PROSPER!

3 John 2 (KJV) Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. Many people are unable to trust because they are uncertain of the intent and motive of others towards them. It is often a natural thing with humans to be skeptical of others, especially if they have been victimized in the past. So the idea of I have difficulty in trusting others becomes normalized in them, and they…

What is your ‘CONFESSION’?

1 John 4:15 (KJV) Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. The power of confession cannot be underestimated. However, it is essential to establish that confession in itself without faith in the person making such confession will amount to nothing. We heard it been said, “Confession is Possession,” implying that by what we say, we stand to see or receive, as factual as that may sound, it is not…

Let Us Seek God’s Approval, not men.

Galatians 1:1-10 (KJV) Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) Approval is something we crave for and often seek both for ourselves and from others. It is usually a natural phenomenon that we are born with, and in most cases, we want people to approve of us. The danger inherent in seeking the approval of people is that, in most cases, it is very conditional…
