Vain Worship

God would rather the doors of our churches be shut than for us to offer up shallow forms of worship and praise to him, which may stir the emotions, but not produce changed hearts, minds, and lives for Jesus Christ. It is better to have no sacrifices, than to have vain ones (See: Malachi 1:10). … Continue reading Vain Worship

Troubled Hearts

The Lord Jesus led me to read John 14 (vv. 1-6 NASB). “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.” V. 1 When we are born into this world, we are born with sin natures, in slavery to sin, separate from God, and we all fall short of attaining … Continue reading Troubled Hearts

Are we living up to the potential for which he created us and saved us? “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by … Continue reading Church of The West

Though a War

When we follow Jesus Christ with our lives, and we teach what is truth, from God’s Word, although some people will welcome the truth, some will not, and they may even strongly oppose us. This is not to say that we will always get everything right, though, for we are not God, although God is … Continue reading Though a War
