The Side-Walk Gospel

Colossians 2:1-3 ESV “For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and … Continue reading The Side-Walk Gospel

Walk in The Good Way

Here in Jeremiah 6 we have another picture of God’s people living in adultery against God, in idolatry, and in utter wickedness. And, again the picture is one of hardened hearts which will not listen to the Lord, for they take no pleasure in the instructions of God. Although the Lord has been warning his … Continue reading Walk in The Good Way

To Their Own Harm

Hebrews 6:1-3 ESV “Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And this we will do … Continue reading To Their Own Harm

With All Your Heart!

Zephaniah 3:1-2 ESV “Woe to her who is rebellious and defiled, the oppressing city! She listens to no voice; she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the Lord; she does not draw near to her God.” This “woe” is a declaration of some type of judgment against those who are rebellious against Almighty … Continue reading With All Your Heart!

A Second Work of Grace

Palm 120:1-2 ESV “In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.” What Lying Lips?

Do Not Love Worldliness 1 John 2:15-17 ESV “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

By Another Way

Yesterday, I was talking with a fellow (female) blogger about something I had read on “Christian Forums.” Someone on there had inquired about something called “ASMR,” wondering if it was bad for Christians. Since I had never heard of “ASMR,” I googled it to find out what it is. And, it turned out that it … Continue reading By Another Way

Examine What You Hear

Do Also to Them Matthew 7:12 ESV “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” This is another one of those verses that must be read in context, not just of the chapter, but of the whole of the New Testament, … Continue reading Examine What You Hear

The Challenger

Grumbling and Disputing Philippians 2:14 ESV “Do all things without grumbling or disputing…” There is a massive “dispute” going on right now within the church over the gospel of our salvation. For there is a challenger which and who is standing in opposition to the Lord’s true gospel of grace. Primarily or foundationally the challenger … Continue reading The Challenger

For This Purpose

So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out … Continue reading For This Purpose
