In Harmony

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the … Continue reading In Harmony

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

He was also tempted in like manner as we are tempted, yet without … Continue reading Because of What He’s Done

But, it isn’t just us who are being opposed, but it is the gospel of our salvation which is coming under fire, … Continue reading Persuasive Arguments

So, what are these statutes that God has laid down for us which are righteous and fully trustworthy? When we talk about the “Word of God,” what do we … Continue reading Words
