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 murderous act of abortion.

Written by

Jeremiah 1:5 – This one verse destroys every argument for the murderous act of abortion. God Himself forms us in the womb (see Psa. 139:13; Isa. 44:24). No one is an accident.

We, too, have been formed (created by God), known (known by God), sanctified (by the blood of the Savior) and ordained...

The most terrible of positions!

Written by

“He who does not take the step of faith, and so enter upon the road to heaven, will perish. It will be an awful thing to die just outside the gate of life. Almost saved, but altogether lost! This is the most terrible of positions. A man just outside Noah’s ark would have been drowned; a...

Genesis 1 vs. Genesis 2

Written by

Some skeptics claim that chapters 1 and 2 are contradictory. However, a close reading shows there is no contradiction. Genesis 1 gives the day-by-day account of the entire creation week, whereas Gen. 2 gives the details of man’s creation on the sixth day. Since the creation work was finished...

One day.

Written by

We have six days in which to labor, but God has given us one day a week to set aside for rest and to focus on Him. By not striving to provide for ourselves, this shows our trust in Him as the one who has given us our life, our every breath, our loved ones, and eternity in heaven with Him. With...

The story of Naaman.

Written by

The story of Naaman is a wonderful example of true salvation. All humanity has the leprous disease of sin. To be cleansed we have to humble ourselves. Pride keeps so many from coming to Christ because of the seemingly foolish way of salvation.

“Humility pleases God wherever it is found, and...

The way of life and the way of death.

Written by

Deuteronomy 30:19,20. This is the essence of the gospel that we preach to this world. Set before them are the way of life and the way of death, the way of blessing and the way of cursing. If they reject Jesus Christ, and the love He demonstrated on the cross, they reject the One who is Life itself...

Our threefold enemy.

Written by

We are to reckon the sinful nature dead to our threefold enemy (the world, the flesh, and the devil) as it hangs with Christ on the cross of Calvary. However, to effectively do this, we need the assistance of the Ten Commandments to kill our sinful nature (see Rom. 7:10,11). The Law sends us to the...

Pleasure as primary goal.

Written by

The godless see pleasure as their primary goal—something called hedonism. They will have no desire to seek after the righteousness that delivers from death until the Law puts salt on their tongue. The moral Law reveals sin and its terrible consequence. It makes a sin-seeking sinner look for a...

Turn about face.

Written by

Many years ago, I ran a children’s club. At the end of the club I told about one hundred kids to line up for some candy. There was an immediate rush, and the line sorted itself into what I saw as being a line of greed. The bigger, selfish kids were at the front, and the small and timid ones...

In Acts 17:16 we are told that Paul was grieved because the whole city of Athens was given over to idolatry. So, in vv. 22–28, he tells his hearers that they had other gods before the God of creation. He is in essence opening up the First and Second Commandments: “I am the Lord your...

Agnostic = ignorant

Awake, you who sleep.

Written by

Until God’s Law comes in the hand of the Captain of our salvation (see Heb. 2:10), we are asleep in our sins. It strikes us and says, “Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light” (Eph. 5:14). It is God’s Law that causes the sinner to revive and...

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...

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!

When fiery serpents were sent among Israel, their deadly bite caused the Israelites to admit that they had sinned.

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...
