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

No hope without Jesus.

Written by

Without Jesus of Nazareth, none of us have any hope. If He was not who He said He was, we are still in our sins and hell awaits us. Never doubt the promises of God, even for a moment. He who does so cuts gaping holes in his own parachute.

God’s good pleasure.

Written by

God extends favor toward us as we stand before Him clothed in the righteousness of Christ. We can boldly draw near the throne of grace, having obtained redemption in Christ (see Heb. 4:16). It is now the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom (Luke 12:32).

When morality becomes subjective.

Written by

This is the result of a nation that forsakes God’s Law. Morality becomes subjective. The only answer is the power of the gospel changing the heart of the sinner so that he will want to do what is right in God’s eyes.

With God, nothing is impossible.

Written by

Some skeptics think that Judges 1:19 contradicts Luke 1:37, “For with God nothing will be impossible.” It was Judah, not God, who could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley. The assumption is that because God was with Judah, they were therefore promised victory over their...

“Is lying acceptable… sometimes?”

Written by

This is a contentious issue. Most husbands would lie if an armed intruder asked if his wife was hiding in the house. If he said, “Yes, she’s under the bed,” then he would be enabling her murder. What would he say if he’s forced at gunpoint to watch while the gunman rapes his...

Are you a good person?

Written by

Evildoers think they are good people, while advocating the killing of children in the womb, homosexual marriages, and other things that are offensive to God. All the while they think their behavior is fine in God’s eyes. That’s why the Law must be thundered from the pulpits and echoed...

Hyperboles in the Bible.

Written by

The Bible often uses hyperbole, contrasting love with hate, for the sake of emphasis. To say that God is “all loving,” as the ungodly so often maintain, is to create an idol to worship. God is love, but He is also just, holy, and righteous. He loves us because He chooses to; He is not a...

“Did Jesus abolish the Law?”

Written by

Skeptics claim that this passage and Eph. 2:13–15 abolish the Law, in contradiction to Matt. 5:17: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.”

The skeptic has no understanding of the reason Christ suffered and died. He...

Prophecy being fulfilled today.

Few within the Church would deny that we are seeing Bible prophecy being fulfilled before our very eyes. These are certainly “perilous” times. Men’s hearts are failing them for fear of what is coming on the earth. There are suicide bombings, terrorist acts, nation rising against...

Clear to sinners.

Written by

Our aim when preaching the gospel is to make the issue clear to sinners. We must put the writing on the wall—that God has seen their sin and will judge them for it. When God gave His Law, “so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and...

Every soul…

Every soul that is added to the Church is a soul from the camp of the enemy.

Afraid to share their faith.

Written by

Do not be surprised if, in a church of 22,000, you can only find 300 who are prepared to reach out to the lost. Sadly, most Christians are afraid to share their faith with nonbelievers and would rather stay home than tell others how to find eternal life. Such reluctance among churchgoing Christians...

How wonderful will that day be! The knowledge of the glory of the Lord will cover the earth, as the waters cover the sea (see Hab. 2:14). In the meanwhile, we have a limited time to take the living waters of the gospel to this lost and dying world. Don’t waste your life chasing things that...

If someone asks how you know that there is an afterlife, tell them that you have the greatest authority on earth. If you have the word of a king, that is something to stand on. But we have the Word of God, and that can be relied upon with absolute certainty.

Discipline yourself to read the Bible daily. Let it search out your sin and remind you where you would be heading without the cross. If you forget the Word, you may just forget the cross, and in time get caught up in the things of this sinful world. For the importance of feeding on God’s...

Micah 1:1-4. Notice the word “let” in v. 2. Those who allow God to speak to them will understand that He has witnessed every transgression of His Law. Those who refuse to hear will eventually find to their horror that He has witnessed every secret sin, but by then it will be too late to...

A function of the Law.

Understanding the truth of the Law produces the fear of the Lord. See Rom. 2:17–24 for how Paul used the moral Law to bring the knowledge of sin. Seeing sin in its true light makes us rightly fear God, which causes us to depart from sin.
