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

Fleshly pleasures for a little time.

Written by

“Do you esteem the pleasures of sin so sweet, so solid, so lasting—that it is your interest to run the risk of intolerable, eternal misery, rather than part with them? Can you form such an estimate as this while in your senses?

“No! he is a mad-man with whom fleshly pleasures for a...

“The 3rd or the 6th hour?”

Written by

Mark tells us that Jesus was crucified at the third hour. But skeptics claim there is a contradiction because John says it was at least three hours later, since at “about the sixth hour” Jesus was still with Pilate before the Jewish crowd (John 19:14). Matthew (27:45) and...

As bad as it gets.

Written by

For believers, life here on earth is as bad it gets; for those who refuse Jesus as their Savior, life here on earth is as good as it gets.

“Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.” C. S. Lewis

“Was Hitler a Christian?”

Despite the fact that Adolf Hitler had a Roman Catholic background, he became adamantly anti-Christian and believed in evolution. As other dictators have done, he took over the churches and used their organizational structure to influence the citizens—though the teachings allowed were...

What a zealous man feels.

Written by

“A zealous man feels that, like a lamp, he is made to burn; and if consumed in burning, he has but done the work for which God appointed him. Such a one will always find a sphere for his zeal. If he cannot preach and work and give money, he will cry and sigh and pray.” John C. Ryle

Grace alone!

Written by

Partake regularly in communion, and as you eat the bread and drink of the cup, remember your past sins. God has forgotten them, but it is good for us to remember them for a moment to recall that we were once children of wrath wandering in the wilderness of sin. Such thoughts keep us at the foot of...

Pray for a great living army.

Written by

While these verses are directed at the “whole house of Israel” (v. 11), it is easy to see their evangelistic application. The world sits in the valley of the shadow of death. Those who do not know the Lord are dead in their trespasses and sins (see Eph. 2:1), and we have been commanded...

Although this passage speaks of prophets who have visions of peace for Jerusalem when there was no peace (see v. 10), these verses should make us tremble. The modern message of evangelism is too quick to say that a sinner has peace with God merely because he has recited a “sinner’s...

In the “image and likeness” of God.

Written by

Adam was uniquely created in the “image and likeness” of God (see Gen. 1:26). But after he sinned and died spiritually (see Gen. 2:17 comment), his offspring were made in hisfallen image. Since everything reproduces “after its own kind,” all of Adam’s offspring (all...

Hiding your sin?

Written by

Some primitive tribes paint their faces so that their gods cannot recognize them when they kill. We may smile at such absurdity, but modern man is no different. He thinks that God, who made his eyes, cannot see his sin. But it is the sinner, not God, who is blind. See Psa. 94:7–11

God’s amazing attributes

Written by

We have so very little understanding of the nature of God. Scripture puts us in the shallowest of shores on the very edge of the deepest of oceans. It will take all of eternity for us to explore His amazing attributes.

“Do you know the Lord?”

Written by

The biblical challenge to an unsaved person is, “Do you know the Lord?” If someone is a “backslider” (a false convert), ask him, “Did you know the Lord?” That puts him between a rock and a hard place. If he says he did, then he is admitting that God is real and...

Exaggerated expectations.

The words “God is witness between you and me” should not be taken lightly. God is the omniscient witness. He is ever-present and sees all—all thoughts, all actions, all intent, and all desire. Even the darkness is pure light to Him. Nothing is hidden from His holy eyes, and we...

Many people think so. There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes. They need the Law to show them that their heart is deceitfully wicked and their sin is exceedingly sinful. See how the Law works: Rom. 3:19,20; 7:7,13.

Blind helplessness.

Written by

Perhaps it is because, compared to the greatness of Almighty God, we are small, insignificant, and helpless. A lowly, crawling worm epitomizes blind helplessness. If you wanted to stomp on a worm crawling across your driveway, it could offer no resistance. It has no legs to be able to run; no claws...
