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

You and I are similar.

If God should speak once more.

Written by

“If it were known that God Himself were going to speak once again to man, what eagerness and excitement there would be! For nearly nineteen hundred years He has been silent. No inspired message has been added to the Bible for nearly nineteen hundred years. How eagerly all men would listen if...

Witnessing at work.

Written by

When we interact with people on a daily basis, we have many opportunities for sharing our faith. First, be sure you are respectful to your employer and set a good example in your work ethic by working “as to the Lord” (Col. 3:23). When others around you grumble and complain, if you have...

How amazing…

Written by

How amazing that God accounts His righteousness to us, so that we are not just prodigal sons who are forgiven but who underneath it all still smell like a pigsty. We are washed clean, clothed with a pure robe of righteousness, and given a ring of inheritance (see Luke 15:22).

1 Corinthians 1:30 But...

Hope that is hopeless.

Written by

Early in 2008, a couple were snowboarding in New Mexico when they became lost in a snow storm. They had a cell phone to call for help, but decided not to because they were experienced hikers. They believed they could save themselves. They built a shelter in the snow and spent the night huddled...

Breaking even one law…

Written by

If a man is hanging on for dear life to a chain, if it breaks in just one link he will still plummet to his death. Breaking even one law, one time, is enough to condemn us. See James 2:10 comment.

“Without the atoning blood of Christ, sinners can neither have communion with a holy God, nor do...

Circumcision of the heart.

Written by

Skeptics argue that the Bible’s statement that the covenant of circumcision is to be everlasting (Gen. 17:7,10–11) contradicts verses saying that the circumcision is of no consequence (Gal. 6:15).

The means by which a man is justified in God’s sight isn’t through circumcision...

By grace and grace alone.

Written by

Read the below passage.  This passage makes it clear that any salvation from God (whether it be the deliverance of the nation of Israel, or of the sinner through the gospel) doesn’t come by anything we have done. He cleanses us of our sin (see 1 John 1:7; Heb. 10:22) and enables us to do...

All sins are crimes against God’s Law.

Written by

There are some crimes that outrage society. It often takes the murder of a child to stir a sense of anger in sinful humanity, but God’s wrath is stirred even by hatred, which He considers equivalent to murder. All sins are crimes against God’s Law (1 John 3:4) and are extremely...

Railing against God.

Written by

When an unsaved person rails against God for His judgments or becomes “angry” at God, he reveals the sin of idolatry. He doesn’t fear God because he doesn’t see Him as He is, and he doesn’t see himself as he is. Use the Law of God to put God in the judgment seat and...

Neglecting your family devotions?

Written by

If Christian parents neglect to have daily family devotions and to take time to build a solid Christian foundation during their children’s impressionable years, they should not be mystified when the children turn from the things of God during their teenage years (see Psa. 78:4,5).

Us who labor for the King.

Written by

In the world’s incongruent attitude toward the Church, Christians are, on the one hand, considered to be a feeble folk engaged in a futile work. At the same time, non-Christians are often greatly threatened by the Church and will work hard to hamper its work, often through ridicule. No one...

Lack of zeal?

Written by

If you lack zeal for the lost, it may be that you have never seen that your own sin makes you worthy of death and damnation. We have been justly hung over the valley of the shadow of death, with no hope outside of the mercy of God. This is why it is so beneficial to go through the Ten Commandments....

“Can sacrifices take away sin?”

Written by

To skeptics, Numbers  15:24-28 seem to say that sacrifices can, in at least some cases, take away sin, which contradicts Heb. 10:11: “sacrifices…can never take away sins.” Scripture states that the Old Testament sacrifices could never make the person offering them...

God and the “sound man.”

Every human being is morally obligated to thank and praise God for the precious gift of life. So often we treat Him as we would the “sound man” at church, giving Him no thought until something goes wrong. As Christians, we should also be bursting with worship, praise, and thanksgiving...

The horror of 9/11.

Written by

At times, the power of hunger, thirst, pestilence and plague may not be enough to soften the hard hearts of wicked men. America was brought very low by the horror of 9/11, but it wasn’t long until she crawled her way back into sin. Adversity sometimes makes people look to God, but often they...

Some skeptics see the word “knowledge” in Gen. 3:5 and conclude that God wants to prohibit man from having knowledge. They claim God likes people to be ignorant and unthinking, but they fail to consider what it is a knowledge of. But their sin brought evil into the world, and once...
