False Faith Versus True Faith

Many religions teach that if you are going to be saved and go to Heaven, you need to perform good works. However, this is completely wrong. Scripture makes it clear that salvation is by grace through faith and not works,   “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no…

Relating to your Parents

It is always sad to hear of those who are orphans. You hear of those who have been abandoned or because of a pressure the parents cannot handle, the child becomes an orphan. It is sad hearing of those children who became orphans because they lost their parents due to death or some form of separation that the parents could not prevent. Our hearts go out for those who do…

What is the Will of God? Principle 3: Service

The principle of service is simply the response to what one learns in Scripture. If you desire to discern the will of God in a particular situation (and the Bible has nothing specific to say about it), you need to know God, be acquainted with the mind of God by studying Scripture and now you need to be a person who is applying what Scripture says. This means, you are to…

Questions Concerning Baptism

What is the meaning of baptism? Before Jesus ascended to Heaven, He issued the following command to His disciples, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age”…

Wrong worship comes to God on the basis and by means of man’s ways and not God’s. Scripture is filled with examples of wrong worship. I have only selected a few examples that illustrate the corrupt practice…

Sacrifice and Obedience

The Sacrifice of Isaac by Caravaggio In the first book of Samuel, chapter 15, King Saul neglects the direct commands of God. Samuel’s prophetic word in response to Saul’s sin is as follows: Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat…

High Octane Calvinism

Speaking of Calvinism, I like what Douglas Wilson has to say about the grace & works dilemma and how “High Octane Calvinism” is the only solution. How can we balance our focus on God’s grace, and also our focus on obedience and discipleship? Watch here for his answer.

A Call to Ministry

Many fine Christians believe in a call to ministry. I have often been asked whether I am called to ministry myself. What does the Bible say about such a call? ****THANK-YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING****

We Don’t Walk Alone

Life can be frightening when we don’t know what lies ahead. However Jesus challenges us to trust in Him and follow obediently, knowing that He will hold us afloat in the storms of life that come our way.
