God's Terms of Peace

When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, "If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! Luke 19.42 The Jews in Jesus' day missed it when it came to God's terms of peace. They were looking for this material and external kingdom. They believed they would see it and know it when it was here. They were looking for the ...

Necessary

For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot says, "Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. And if the ear says, "Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body," it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. 1 Corinthians 12.14 Paul, what about the pinky? You will notice...

Yes, Lord

I remember in my college days jumping at every opportunity to serve. As I was growing in the Lord serving became a joy of mine. The Lord taught me that my answer to whatever He wanted was always yes. In 1998, I was at a conference in Austin. For the first time I heard taught Isaiah 26.8, which says, Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your truth, we eagerly wait for You, for...

Test the Spirits

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4.1 As we heard Sunday, we are to test leaders and teachers to make sure they are from God. In this world there are many false teachers and leaders. So, we must be aware and examine every spirit as the apostle John s...

The Small Gate

Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7.13-14 More and more it is evident that we live in what many call a post-Christian society. Pluralism is all around us. Though it...

Treating People Biblically

In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7.12 How do you want people to treat you? The implication in this verse is that we would want to be treated biblically. That is the emphasis here on how one is to treat another and how they would want to be treated. Treating people biblically is a ...
