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 Law cannot be kept.

Written by

“The Law is the Word in which God teaches and tells us what we are to do and not to do, as in the Ten Commandments. Now wherever human nature is alone, without the grace of God, the Law cannot be kept, because since Adam’s fall in paradise man is corrupt and has nothing but a wicked...

They will probably put me in a box…

Written by

“Now, I know that someday I am going to come to what some people will say is the end of this life. They will probably put me in a box and roll me right down here in front of the church, and some people will gather around, and a few people will cry. But I have told them not to do that because...

An oasis of water.

Written by

Two men were crawling through a desert, dying of thirst. One man managed to get to his feet, and stumbled over a small rise. To his utter surprise he found an oasis of cool, fresh water. He fell into the water, drank to his heart’s content, and ran back to tell his dying friend the good news.

A fragrant ointment.

Written by

The name of Jesus to the Christian is like a wonderful, fragrant ointment that releases the aroma of the love of God. Jesus is the focal point of our salvation: “If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed” (1 Cor. 16:22).

Christ can be found now!

An opportunity.

Written by

We need not hide verses that speak of God killing whom He will. All of His judgments are righteous and true altogether, and the One who gave us life has the right to take it from all who sin (see 1 Sam. 2:6; Job 12:10). If God were to give humanity absolute justice, we all would be struck down the...

This perceptive atheist has identified a problem with this popular but unbiblical phrase. Modern preachers often tell a sinner that if he dies without Christ’s forgiveness he will be “separated from God” forever. It’s what I call a “fear of man...

It deeply concerns me when I hear a professing Christian telling an unbeliever that he is a good person. Jesus said that there is no one good but God (see Mark 10:18). Anyone who says that human beings are good is calling Jesus a liar. My concern isn’t just that the unbeliever is being...

No contradiction.

Written by

Skeptics argue that some verses say the earth was established forever (Psa.78:69; Eccl. 1:4; 3:14), contradicting those that say the earth will someday perish (Psa. 102:25,26; Matt. 24:35; Heb. 1:10,11; 2 Pet. 3:10).

God has established that the earth will exist forever, though it will be completely...

Divine hatred is without sin.

Written by

This image of God is hard to reconcile with the world’s belief that “God is a God of love.” He is also a God of justice, righteousness, and truth, and any hatred is judicial. Divine hatred is without sin (1 John 1:5). See also Psa. 5:5

Go to the closet.

Written by

As a man or woman of God, do you have a “closet” in which you pray, and do you plead with God to raise up laborers as you have been commanded to do (see Luke 10:2)? This is perhaps the most neglected command in Scripture. If we do not seek the lost, the last thing we are going to pray...

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...

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.

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.

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.

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...

Awake, you who sleep.

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...
