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

Authority And Independence Featured

Written by

If ye love Me, ye will keep My commandments. —John 14:15 (RV)

Discernment Of Faith Featured

Written by

Faith as a grain of mustard seed… — Matthew 17:20

Faith Featured

Without faith it is impossible to please Him. —Hebrews 11:6

Faith in antagonism to common sense is fanaticism, and common sense in antagonism to faith is rationalism. The life of faith brings the two into a right relation. Common sense is not faith, and faith is not common sense; they...

What Is A Missionary? Featured

Written by

As My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you. —John 20:21

A missionary is one sent by Jesus Christ as He was sent by God. The great dominant note is not the needs of men, but the command of Jesus. The source of our inspiration in work for God is behind, not before. The tendency to-day is to...

This is the will of God, even your sanctification. — 1 Thessalonians 4:3

My kingdom is not of this world. — John 18:36

And greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. — John 14:12

All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations. — Matthew 28:18-20
