But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

My father was raised Italian Catholic and for him it was enough that we made our first holy communion at about age six and after that we were on our own, to go to church. By...

Written by
image

There is a subjective element to the Christian life. There are seasons when Christ will draw near to the believer in an experiential way. We ought to pray for more of the subjective power and work of the Holy Spirit in our lives as Christians.

How Do You Kill Sin?

Written by

Christians must not be passive in putting sin to death; they must be proactive. We must never take an attitude of defeat. The Bible calls us to long-term mortification of sin. And at the center of our mortification must be the gospel of Jesus Christ; otherwise it’s just another form of...

God’s Way is Perfect

Written by

A great part of walking with God is surrendering to His way in your life. A life surrendered to God’s way is a life built on His Word. A life built on His Word is one that takes refuge in Him.

This God– his way is perfect; the word of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those...

Encouraging Conversation at the Church Meetings

Written by

When we are with other Christians, we should purposely plan on turning the conversation to spiritual things. One way is to ask specific questions about the sermon or about what God is doing in someone’s life. On the other hand, we shouldn’t think that every time of fellowship has to be...

Overview of Biblical Eldership: All Elders are Pastors

Written by
image

In 1 Peter 5 the Bible identifies those who shepherd the flock as the elders. It is not just one of the elders who shepherds. The Bible teaches that all of the elders are to equally shepherd the flock. This is because all elders are pastors. There is equality, and yet diversity among them; and all...

If you give into anxiety you will reap fear, condemnation, and discouragement. Anxiety is a wasted choice that dishonors the Savior. Rather we must not yield to anxiety, but take everything to the Lord in prayer.

From Fear to Faith in the Face of Christ

Written by

One aspect of mortifying sin is killing our fears. Fear is a drug that makes us think wrongly and it’s the beginning of defeat in any situation that we face. Fear will either rob us and make us passive, or we will learn to be proactive and kill it with the promises of God. We can either...

Amazing Access to the Father

The Gospel gets us all the way to having access with God the Father. This access to God is the summit of it all. It does not get any better than this. We are not talking about some access to riches on earth, but access to God. We are not talking about momentary access and then you have to leave,...

In King Uzziah we see the sad biography of how fame and pride destroyed him. He was unfaithful to the Lord and was rebuked by 80 men of valor for his actions, but rather than heed their warning, he responded in anger and defended himself. So also in our generation, we’ve sadly seen many...
