An Addict’s Spouse

What I am about to share with you, I share with permission from my husband of 45 years. He has now made public his sexual addiction, and he states that he now wants complete deliverance. To be perfectly honest, though, I have heard those same words come out of his mouth many times, but they … Continue reading An Addict’s Spouse

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

When we see this word “if” show up in scripture, we should take notice, for it implies uncertainty, the unknown, or that … Continue reading If You Have

Tell the Truth

I read 1 Peter 3 (Select vv. NIV) In this life, we live with real flesh and blood people, of whom we are also a part. Even though many of us have trusted in Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior of our lives, and thus we have been crucified with Christ in death to … Continue reading Tell the Truth

Provoking Jealousy

Saturday, October 21, 2017, 3:34 p.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “To Be Like Him.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read 1 Corinthians 10 (quoting select vv. ESV). Examples for Us (vv. 6-10) Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil … Continue reading Provoking Jealousy
