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

Sin is lawlessness.

Written by

All sin is against God. Most of this world doesn’t understand that fact. When we sin we violate God’s Law, for “sin is lawlessness” (1 John 3:4). Notice to whom David directed his repentance after Nathan rebuked him for violating the Commandments. He...

If it’s not biblical, reject it!

Written by

Search the Scriptures to make sure that everything you hear lines up with the Word of God. If it’s not biblical, reject it as you would a drop of deadly poison.

Our past sins…

Written by

Everythingwe have done is “in the past.” Even reading this sentence is something you’ve done in the past. We somehow think that because something sinful was done some time ago, God is no longer angry about the sin. But that defense doesn’t work even in our criminal courts:...

A man after God’s own heart.

Written by

There is much speculation about why God called David “a man after My own heart” (1 Sam. 13:14; Acts 13:22). This seems strange given his sin with Bathsheba and the fact that God said he was a “man of war” who has shed much blood (1 Chron. 22:8). Perhaps it was because David...

Be a servant, fear the Lord.

Written by

The key to being heard by God is to be a servant who delights in the fear of the Lord. Jesus was heard in that He feared: “who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard...

Ruined his mother’s day…

Written by

“The powerful preaching of Jesus is piercing precisely because everything He says is not only true, but comes from a heart of love. Jesus first of all, loves His Father in heaven and would never compromise the message that sinners must be delivered or be damned. That is the reason Jesus came...

Fish will not be fishers.

Written by

“We cannot be fishers of men if we remain among the men in the same element with them. Fish will not be fishers. The sinner will not convert the sinner. The ungodly man will not convert the ungodly man. What is more to the point, the worldly Christian will not convert the world. If you are of...

God created you for this particular time in history. You weren’t born in the Dark Ages, or in the 18th century. Your time is at hand. Today, seek and save that which is lost. Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Hand out a tract. Ask God for a divine...

God provided a lamb.

Written by

God commanded Abraham to do something that He had previously forbidden: sacrifice a human being. The location of this human sacrifice would be on a mountain of God’s choosing. While Abraham and his soon-to-be-sacrificed son, Isaac, were walking, Isaac noticed that they did not have a lamb for...

Does God have a body?

Written by

Gen. 3:8 describes Him walking in the garden, yet the Bible says that “God is Spirit” (John 4:24). It is true that God is Spirit and that “A spirit does not have flesh and bones” (Luke 24:39). The reference to God “walking” is what is known as...

Fig leaves.

Written by

The “nakedness” in Gen. 3:7 is not the same as that mentioned in 2:25, where the husband and wife were naked but had nothing of which to be ashamed. As a consequence of sinning against God, they lost their covering of righteousness—their right standing before God, which they had...

All sin offends God.

Written by

The ungodly don’t understand that their sin is against God (see Psa. 51). They believe certain sinful actions are morally acceptable “as long as they don’t hurt anyone.” But all sin offends God. The true convert understands that he has transgressed against a holy God (see...

In the “wilderness.”

God will often speak to our hearts in the “wilderness.” There are times when we find ourselves in the heat of burning tribulation, and times when God comforts our hearts and His grace becomes sufficient for us.

An incomprehensible spectacle to angels.

Written by

By Bruce Garner

When you look through the life of Christ, one of the evidences that this is no mere man is seen because His life and work were witnessed and supported by angels. Jesus lived His life, I am confident, as an incomprehensible spectacle to angels.

What are angels? The Bible tells us that...

A direct reference to the Ten Commandments.

Deuteronomy 6:5–9. This is a direct reference to the Ten Commandments (see 5:6–21). Teach your children the moral Law—not to improve their memory or to help them win an Awana contest, but to awaken their conscience and prepare the soil of their hearts for the life-giving seed of...

Excessive light.

Written by

“The Law searches to the dividing asunder of joints and marrow, and it is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Its excessive light strikes us like Saul of Tarsus, to the earth, and makes us cry for mercy.” —Charles Spurgeon

“Poor youth! He had a good mind to be a Christian, and to inherit eternal life, but thought it too dear, if it could be purchased at no less an expense than of his estate! And thus many, both young and old, now-a-days, come running to worship our blessed Lord in public, and kneel before him...

While the world burns…

“It has always been difficult to understand those evangelical Christians who… say they serve the Lord, but they divide their days so as to leave plenty of time to play and loaf and enjoy the pleasures of the world as well. They are at ease while the world burns.” A.W. Tozer

Worship graven images.

Written by

Many modern cultures worship graven images, which are anything that is venerated—whether it is an image of a rat, a Buddha, Mary, dead “saints,” or even an icon of Jesus on the cross. For those who would disagree with such thoughts, read carefully Exod. 20:4,5. The Ten...

No hope without Jesus.

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 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.
