    What Does Repentance Look Like?

    John replied, "If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry." Even corrupt tax collectors came to be baptized and asked, "Teacher, what should we do?" He replied, "Collect no more taxes than the government requires." Luke 3:11-13 NLT You may...

    Have You Fully Repented?

    Any thoughts on this subject of aspects of repentance would be appreciated. Thanks. YBIC Nick <>< So the disciples went out, telling everyone they met to repent of their sins and turn to God. Mark 6:12 NLT What did Jesus and early Christians mean when they used the word repent? The New...

    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...

    Outward Acts Of Repentance Matter

    So it was, when Ahab heard those words, that he tore his clothes and put sackcloth on his body, and fasted and lay in sackcloth, and went about mourning. 1 Kings 21:27 King Ahab is remembered as one of the worst, most wicked kings of Israel, but even he found God's mercy and forgiveness when he...

    Repentance, Forgiveness and Love. Are we in the Last Days?

    We love Him, because He first loved us. 1John 4:19 Many, if not all, would agree that we are in the last days before the coming of the Lord. In the New Testament, we saw a man named John, who prepared the way before the coming of the Lord. Throughout the Old Testament we have seen the many...

    It's Our Duty

    Love One Another Romans 13:8-10 ESV Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed...

    Lying Tongues

    An Original Work / April 9, 2018 You say one thing, But you do another. You say you’re pure, But have another lover. Your talk is cheap. And your walk is failing. You’re not sincere, So, you can stop your railing. You play your games, And your lips do conquer. You may fool some, But, I...

    There is Hope!

    Don’t Be Deceived 1 John 3:4-10, 18 ESV Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either...

    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...

    True Intimacy

    On Fire “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation. “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold...

    Who Are We?

    The Lord Jesus led me today to read the transcript of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address of January 30, 2018. I got about half way through reading it when the Lord said to stop, and that I had read enough, and that it was time for me to write what the Lord thinks about it. The...

    The World Today

    For those of us who live in the USA, or in the world, as a whole, are we aware of the spiritual and moral decline across our nation, or across the globe? Have we noticed the chaos, the rebellion, and the utter moral decay and depravity that is now being accepted as normal in our society, and...

    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...

    It Matters!

    Believers in Jesus Christ: Is God always pleased with us, no matter what we do? Now that we have been saved, by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, when God looks at us, can he see when we sin against him? Or, does he only see Jesus? Can we believe in Jesus Christ, and be in genuine...

    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...

    A People Divided

    There are so many things which divide us as a nation, as a people, and as the children of God. We are divided by hatred, violence, political affiliation, denomination, race, religion, social status, culture, belief systems, etc. We are also divided by greed, love of power, idolatry, spiritual...

    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...
