Two Kingdoms, Two Women, One War

Spiritual warfare comes to every believer regardless of how we react; it is unavoidable. With believers dedicating so much effort to walking in love and living quiet, peaceable lives, some might wonder why battles find them. It seems to me that as long as we are living in this body, battles will come looking for usContinue reading “Two Kingdoms, Two Women, One War”

Relationship Test

Have you ever experienced a period in your life with competing objectives that occupied far too much mental real estate? Admittedly, over the past few weeks, I have allowed distractions to crowd my mind and deprive me of the refreshing joy and peace found in my relationship with the LORD. People in all walks ofContinue reading “Relationship Test”

Born to Run Against Horses

Do you believe God is who He says He is? How can you be assured of your eternity with Him without believing what He has said about Himself and you? When we try to explain God’s ways through human reason, we often are confronted by Scriptures that seem contradictory or are opposed to common sense;Continue reading “Born to Run Against Horses”

What’s the Difference? (17 – 20 min)

We often paraphrase or use metaphors, similes and even hyperbole to communicate to others. Our efforts are to ensure others understand the message being conveyed. There are different levels of understanding that we could categorize as knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, amalgamation of information, and discernment or judgment. The very first level of understanding is to gain knowledgeContinue reading “What’s the Difference? (17 – 20 min)”

Out of the World!

Have you ever met a know-it-all? Interestingly enough, usually, this sort does not know that they do not know. Unfortunately, during my youth, I did whatever pleased me. Although the LORD surrounded me with people who tried to warn me of the world’s dangers, I remember thinking its traps could not catch me because IContinue reading “Out of the World!”

BUT GOD!

In this “time of shaking”, values, health, economies, and environments are undergoing intense upset, and many people are revaluating their beliefs. It is critical to spiritual health to have confidence in something that is not subject to the manipulation of imperfect human beings.

There is Purpose for All of It!

My heart goes out to so many people across the entire globe who are trying to escape persecution, war, shortages of food and water, severe weather, violence and sickness. I believe our LORD is saddened for individuals as well. When I was growing up, some people said such occurrences were not increasing; instead, they attributed theContinue reading “There is Purpose for All of It!”

Finishing Faithful & Fruitful

In recent years, we have heard of some high profile individuals who had professed Christ as their Saviour either: renounce their profession of faith; or promote a form of grace that tolerates any human desire and choice. Others have experienced unfortunate moral failures, have repented and are walking with the LORD. It’s easy to startContinue reading “Finishing Faithful & Fruitful”

Before the Night

When contemplating Christ’s horrendous suffering, I find it difficult not to think about whether I could endure such affliction for people I love; never mind for antagonists. Two factors immediately come to mind: enduring pain and facing physical death. Neither thought is pleasant, especially because God created us with the innate desire to live! Depending on whatContinue reading “Before the Night”
