    Is 'Free Will' really free will? and if not??

    He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, "My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done." Matthew 26:42 And He was saying, "Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will. Mark 14:36 We have...

    A Greater Obedience

    This letter is from Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives. This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God--who does not...

    It is God/Jesus' holiness, righteousness, and obedience, alone...

    imputed to a mere human that avails for any of us mere humans to be received in heaven as a child unto God.

    By Faith We

    By Faith Hebrews 11:1-3 ESV Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that...

    Belief versus Piety

    Hello. A friendly atheist here. A question occurred to me the answer to which I’d like a range of opinions from among Christians. This is not a “gotchya” question. I am not fishing for any right or wrong answer to prove some point. Promise. First, let me just say there are certain aspects of...

    Mutual Encouragement

    Obedience of Faith Romans 1:1-7 ESV Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be...

    It Produces Change

    Justified by Faith Romans 5:1-2 ESV Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. When we are born into...

    In Sincerity

    Be Holy Hebrews 12:14-17 NIV Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. See that no one is sexually immoral...

    Hope and Future

    Is there such a thing as absolute truth? Are there definite rights and wrongs? Or, is morality completely subjective? Are we to show tolerance (acceptance) of all beliefs and practices? Should we make allowances for sin – sin as defined by God? Or for different religions? And, should we...

    Bring it Home!

    What are the “devil’s schemes”? They are vast! His arsenal seems unlimited. He knows our weaknesses from observing us, and he knows, too, just where to strike us to make the biggest impact. Sometimes, he knows us better than we know ourselves, because we can often get blinded to our own...

    Don't Be a Slacker!

    As I was praying about what the Lord Jesus would have me write this evening, for I knew he was giving me another devotional to write, he put in my mind this passage of scripture found in Proverbs 6:6 (KJV): “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.” “A sluggard is a...

    More Than Words

    Do you ever feel as though God has allowed you to go through difficulties, trials, and tribulations so that you feel his heart? So that, when he speaks, you get his words, down deep into the very depths of your soul, because you have experienced, to some extent, what God has or is experiencing...

    Something Skipped

    Have you found yourself in a spiral of sin, confess, sin, confess, sin, confess, but you never seem to progress past that? You keep repeating the same patterns, the same sins, the same responses, with the same lies, and the same attitudes, but you just can’t seem to jump ship. It is a lot like...

    Outside the Box

    Has God ever called you to do something, or to a ministry, which was “outside the box”? To something unconventional by human standards? To something that didn’t fit in with the norms of institutional religion? And, you knew, that by accepting this call on your life, that you were going to face...

    Not in Freedom!

    My heart is burdened. Why is it so burdened? Because so many Christians, or professing Christians, are walking (living) in sin and not in freedom! The Lord Jesus led me to read Galatians 5 (Select vv. ESV). For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a...

    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)...

    Abiding in Christ

    The Lord Jesus led me to read John 15 (Select vv. ESV). Are you in a true relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you genuinely saved from your sins, and bound for heaven? How do you know this? How can you be sure? What did Jesus Christ have to say on this subject? “I am the true vine, and my...

    Because of What He's Done

    The Lord Jesus led me to read Hebrews 2 (Select vv. ESV). Jesus Christ, the Son of God (and God), and creator of the world, left his throne in heaven, came to earth, took on human flesh, and suffered like we suffer. He was also tempted in like manner as we are tempted, yet without sin. He...

    Please Don't Hate Me!

    Please don’t hate me because I think differently from you on some things, or because I don’t celebrate Jesus Christ in all the same ways in which you do, or because my understanding of what scripture teaches may be a little bit different from yours. For, we both claim to believe in Jesus Christ...

    Our Only God

    The Lord Jesus led me to read Psalm 95 (vv. 1-7a NIV). Do you ever feel saddened by circumstances or by how people respond to you? You know what God has called you to do. You know the words of encouragement he has whispered in your heart. You heard him clearly. There is no doubt about it. So...
