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

Written by

In 2008, a book was published called When Good People Have Affairs,giving seventeen motives for people committing adultery.

One motive is the “accidental affair.” This is when a woman has an innocent drink with her boss, and then goes back to his apartment to discuss business and ends up...

Is your heart set upon God alone?

“The First Commandment, ‘Thou shalt have no other gods before Me’: My friend, are you ready to be weighed against this Commandment? Have you fulfilled, or are you willing to fulfill all the requirements of this Law? Put it into one of the scales, and step into the other. Is your...

It is not His will.

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...

Glory from no one.

Written by

“The canvas never quarrels with the painter. He is free to paint on it what he likes, be it a beggar or a king. The Christian accepts any condition in life as coming from God. If he is successful, he does not boast of it. Can a brush boast that a beautiful picture has been drawn with it? Only...

Quote the verse.

Written by

If a man commits rape and doesn’t consider it a violation of the law, it doesn’t change the fact that it is. Here is proof that lust is a violation of the Ten Commandments: “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery’ [Seventh...

Solomon’s sin and Rehoboam’s folly.

Written by

“This breaking up of the kingdom of Solomon into two parts was the result of Solomon’s sin and Rehoboam’s folly; yet God was in it: ‘This thing is from me, saith the Lord.’ God had nothing to do with the sin or the folly, but in some way which we can never explain, in...

The law of the rain.

Written by

Centuries after Job wrote this, scientists began to discern the “law for the rain.” Rainfall is part of a process called the “water cycle.” The sun evaporates water from the ocean. The water vapor then rises and becomes clouds. This water in the clouds falls back to earth as...

Thanks to Calvary.

Written by

The sacrifice of ourselves to the service of God is now acceptable because of Calvary (see Rom. 12:1,2).

Malachi 1:8 And when you offer the blind as a sacrifice,

Is it not evil?

And when you offer the lame and sick,

Is it not evil?

Offer it then to your governor!

Would he be pleased with...

Cleansed from every stain.

Written by

How incredible that the God of the universe would condescend to speak with human beings. But even more incredible is that the Judge of the Universe would reason with guilty criminals (see also Isaiah 43:6). Our sins stand out to a holy God like a crimson, blood-soaked rag, but through the mercy of...

A consuming fire.

Written by

God’s fury against sin is held back by His long suffering. It is only His mercy that restrains the lightning of His wrath. Our God is a consuming fire (see Heb. 12:29).

“It is because God’s wrath is real that His mercy is relevant. Unless you have a real wrath, a real anger, the...

Genuine belief.

Written by

The people of Nineveh believed God, and the genuineness of their belief in Him produced the evident works of repentance (Jonah 3:10). Measure the faith of those you have witnessed to by asking, “Do you believe what you have just heard?” If they say they don’t, question what...

Pray a “sinner’s prayer.”

Written by

Contrary to Scripture, the modern gospel assures people that if they sincerely pray a “sinner’s prayer,” they should never doubt their salvation. Some go so far as to say that any doubts are from the devil. With eternity at stake, however, Paul admonishes believers to test...

The Bible makes it clear that there will be a Day of Judgment. The Scriptures warn, “Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished” (Prov. 11:21). However, will the standard of judgment be the Ten Commandments, or something else? Some believe it be the words of Jesus that...

The Bride of Christ.

Some say that the queen had good reason to refuse. God forbid that we should ever refuse to be seen as the Bride of Christ and dishonor our Bridegroom (see 2 Cor. 11:2). By our boldness we encourage others to be bold in their faith. See Phil. 1:14.

The less we read the Word of God.

“It is a common temptation of Satan to make us give up the reading of the Word and prayer when our enjoyment is gone; as if it were of no use to read the Scriptures when we do not enjoy them, and as if it were no use to pray when we have no spirit of prayer. The truth is that in order to...

Don’t wait for misfortune.

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...

Normal human behavior.

Written by

King Nebuchadnezzar exalted himself above God. This is normal human behavior. Sinful men stand in judgment over God and question His decrees. They imagine themselves to be cleverer than God, thinking that they can outwit Him by sinning and then repenting at the last minute. Though they can see,...

How Much Do Lost People Matter?

Written by

By Steven D. Mathewson

When the religious leaders of Jesus’ day criticized him for hanging out with sinners, Jesus told three stories about lost items: a lost sheep (Luke 15:1–7), a lost coin (Luke 15:8–10), and a lost son (Luke 15:11–32).

The shepherd left 99 sheep in open...

“Valiant” soldiers of Christ are those who bear the shield of faith and carry the sword of the Word of God. They are able to “shoot with the bow” of God’s Law, giving the arrow of the gospel its power. This is what makes them skillful in the battle for souls. They have...
