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

The Prisoners of the Lord

Written by
“‘Do you want to know the truth? The truth is that when you were young, you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are older, you will stretch out your arms and Someone Else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go’. By this, Jesus was...

The Abundant Life

Written by
There are two aspects, two sides to this glorious truth: first, that I AM IN CHRIST; second, that CHRIST IS IN ME. If the first is true, and I am living in Christ, then the second follows naturally – Christ is living in me.

“Yes, I am the Door. Anyone who goes in and out through Me will...

Do We Look For Another?

Written by
“Now when John heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, and said unto [Jesus], ‘Are you the One that should come, or do we look for another?’” (Matthew 11:2,3).

John: The Apostle of Testimony

Written by
If you read John’s Gospel you will find that it is harmonious with Matthew, Mark, and Luke, but it is also quite apart from them. There is a profoundness there that is not present in the others.

If we look in the New Testament we see a natural order and progression of things. Matthew, Mark,...

Bring Them to Christ

Written by
The goal of all Spirit-led ministry is to bring people to Christ. Allow me to break this statement down and explain what I mean.

If we aim for nothing we will reach nothing. Some Christian workers speak of a goal, some of a vision, some of a calling, some of a burden. Whatever phraseology you wish...

One Flock, One Shepherd

Written by
The Church is compared to many things in the Scriptures. It is described (among other things) as a Bride, a Body, a City, a Flock of sheep, and a House of Living Stones. Each represents a particular truth, but not the entire truth.

We really should be familiar with each of them that we may...

The Most Basic Lesson

Written by
“I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwells no good thing” (Romans 7:18a).
It is a great day for the Lord when a disciple of Jesus learns this most basic lesson: that in “me”, in myself, in my flesh, dwells no good thing. This is a very difficult thing for people to...

To Whom Am I Sent?

Written by
In Scripture we find a principle that governs all spiritual work. This principle applies to anyone and everyone who undertakes to do something on behalf of the Kingdom of God, whether it is preaching, teaching, writing, prophesying, or planting churches.

The Fig Tree Has No Figs

Written by
A growing number of people have come to the conclusion that the social benefits of going to church can no longer compensate for the lack of spiritual life.

“And seeing a fig tree by the road, [Jesus] came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, ‘Let no fruit grow on you...

A New Way to Pray: 4 Benefits

Written by
I think we all start out with a kindergarten-level understanding of prayer. I know I did. I suppose that is natural; unfortunately, too many people remain at that level and never advance beyond it.

At first, prayer is all about “me.” My needs, wants, wishes, desires, and plans. Getting...

The Way of the Cross

Written by
We talk about “one way”, but there are really two ways: the broad way which many take, ending in death; and the narrow way which a few take, ending in life. There are two ways presented to us. One way is of man, seems right in man‘s opinion, and leads to death. The other way is of...
