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 king loved Esther.

Written by

We obtain grace and favor from our King and are given the crown of life (James 1;12), but not because of our beauty. There is nothing in us that draws out the love of God. God loves us because He is love itself.

Esther 2:17 The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she...

There are many things God cannot do—things related to His character rather than His ability. The Bible makes it clear that God cannot lie. (See Heb. 6:18 comment.) He cannot sin. He also cannot let injustice go unpunished. As for whether God can create a rock that He cannot lift, when it...

Audible praise is not enough.

Written by

We are often too busy to consider the amazing creation in which we live. See Psa. 111:2–6 for why God’s marvelous works should be studied. When we ponder the clouds, the stars, the birds, the trees, the flowers, the animals, the vast array of foods, the marvels of the human body, etc.,...

Pronouncing sinners as unclean.

Written by

As priests of the Lord (see 1 Pet. 2:5; Rev. 1:6) we are to pronounce the sinner as unclean. How can we do that without appearing judgmental? Simply by doing what Jesus did and pointing to the Ten Commandments (see Mark 10:17–22). Consider how Paul did this in Rom. 2:21–23: “You,...

Ten biting serpents!

Written by

When fiery serpents were sent among Israel, their deadly bite caused the Israelites to admit that they had sinned. However, God also sent a cure for the serpent bite; He told Moses to make a bronze serpent and place it on a pole. Those who had been bitten and were doomed to die could look at the...

The title “LORD of Hosts” (used 46 times in the book of Zecharaiah) means that all created agencies and forces are under the leadership or dominion of God, who not only made them, but maintains them (see Gen. 2:1; Isa. 45:12). Notice that God tells sinners that if they will forsake...

A misquoted verse.

Written by

This verse, in Mat 5:38, is so often misquoted by the world. Many believe it is giving a license to take matters into our own hands and render evil for evil. However, these are judgments for civil law and not revenge for personal grievances. The spirit of what Jesus is saying here is radically...

For a cup of pleasure…

Be faithful to God.

Written by

Intermarrying with pagan nations often lead to the downfall of God’s people. Some may question why God would require families to separate, but even Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, was lured away from God by his many wives to worship worthless idols (see 1 Kings 11:1–8 and...

“Is it biblical to say this?”

Written by

God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. He is not willing that any perish, but that all come to repentance (see 2 Pet. 3:9). This is why it is biblical to tell sinners that God does not want them to go to hell. It is not His will. He does not send anyone to hell, in the same way a...
