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

We come to know Him.

Written by

When we come to Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, we no longer walk in darkness. Non-Christians are like someone who is driving directly toward the sun, low on the horizon. It is very difficult to see clearly. But it is so different when driving with a low sun behind you—everythingcan be...

Exhaust our lives for Jesus.

Written by

“If by excessive labor we die before reaching the average age of man, worn out in the Master’s service, then glory be to God. We shall have so much less of earth and so much more of heaven. It is our duty and our privilege to exhaust our lives for Jesus. We are not to be living...

Too much hypocrisy in the church?

Written by

“Many people have forsaken the church, complaining that there is too much hypocrisy in it. Business is full of hypocrites, too, but no one stops making money because of that. The relationship between sexes, generations, and nations is full of hypocrisy. Notwithstanding, people fall in love,...

Jonah and the Savior.

Written by

Perhaps in Jonah 2, we have insight into the sufferings of the Savior. The waters of the wrath of God encompassed Him as His soul was made an offering for sin (see Isa. 53:10). A crown of thorns was wrapped around His head as He took upon Himself the Genesis curse. Jesus Himself said that He went...

Saul’s sinful heart.

Written by

1 Samuel 19:9. This is the third time Saul attempted to murder David. And it was all because Saul allowed the seed of jealousy to find root in the dirty soil of his sinful heart (see 18:8). Love rejoices at another’s success, while jealousy invites the spirit of hatred to enter and take up...

“I could prove God statistically…”

He created and set all in order.

Written by

“All material things seem to have been composed of the hard and solid particles above mentioned, variously associated in the first creation by the counsel of an intelligent Agent. For it became Him who created them to set them in order. And if He did so, it’s unphilosophical to seek for...

“Are there multiple “Gods”?

Written by

Are there multiple “Gods” as this verse implies, or is there only one as Deut. 6:4 states: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one”?

There is only one true God, the Creator of heaven and earth. The Bible teaches that God is Triune by nature. He exists eternally as...

Weighted by the Law of God.

Written by

“Now, my friend, are you ready to be weighed by this Law of God? A great many people say that if they keep the Commandments they do not need to be forgiven and saved through Christ. But have you kept them? I will admit that if you perfectly keep the Commandments, you do not need to be saved...

Attending a wedding for a gay couple.

Written by

Is there a difference in attending a wedding for a gay couple and one for a couple that is living together? What about if the bride is pregnant?

The moral Law is spiritual, so anyone who has as much as looked with lust has committed adultery in the heart (see Matt. 5:27,28). It is therefore not...

The warnings of the holy Scripture.

Written by

We should never disregard the warnings of holy Scripture. The Bible is God’s Word and will for sinful humanity. If we refuse to take note, we will suffer terrible consequences. God warned His people that if they refused to walk in obedience, He would severely punish them as a nation. Had they...

Knowing the future.

If you knew even five minutes into the future, I am certain things would radically change for you.

If God is good by nature…

Written by

God’s anger against our sins is not only justified, it should be expected if God is good by nature. No judge in a civil court would be considered a “good” judge if he allowed crimes to go unpunished. If he is good, he must see that justice is done, and if God is perfectly good, He...

Bin Laden, Hitler, Judas and Jesus.

The most hated name in the world is not Osama bin Laden, Hitler, or Judas Iscariot. None of those names are internationally used as a cuss word. By far the winner of the Most Despised Name award is Jesus Christ. He is an all-time Hollywood favorite. His name is used as a cuss word in books and...

The most paralyzing of fears.

Written by

The most paralyzing of fears is the fear of man. It stops millions of Christians from reaching out to the lost. This is a terrible thing because it is hindering them from being true and faithful witnesses. Do you want God to say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servant”? Then cast...

Assurance of salvation.

In the Old Testament the Holy Spirit often came upon and temporarily indwelt the godly to fulfill certain purposes. (King David, for example, spoke of having fellowship with the Holy Spirit; see Psa. 51:11.) First Peter 1:11 says the prophets received revelations of the salvation to come by...

Your feet are beautiful!

Written by

No matter how ugly your feet may look to you, God says that they are beautiful if you preach the gospel of peace (see Isa. 52:7; Rom. 10:15). Never be discouraged. You may have the frown of a sinful world, but you have the smile of God every time you faithfully reach out to the lost.

Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and Jesus.

“Socrates taught for 40 years, Plato for 50, Aristotle for 40, and Jesus for only 3. Yet the influence of Christ’s 3-year ministry infinitely transcends the impact left by the combined 130 years of teaching from these men who were among the greatest philosophers of all antiquity. Jesus...

Making grace amazing.

We are not to forget the Law once we have trusted the Savior. Like John the Baptist, its function is to prepare the way of the Lord (see Gal. 3:24).

Animals in the Ark.

The history of God’s creation (told in Gen. 1—2) tells us that all the land-dwelling creatures were made on Day 6 of Creation Week—the same day God made Adam and Eve. Therefore, it is clear that dinosaurs (being land animals) were made with man.

Also, two of every kind (seven of...
