Good Versus Evil!

Romans 7:5 – “For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.” NKJV I’ve been contemplating this chapter for years, as have many. And for some reason, when I read chapter 7, I walk away with an entirelyContinue reading “Good Versus Evil!”

Christ in Our Place

Romans 5:8- But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. NKJV There is something incredibly humbling to realize that Jesus’ death on the cross was not an act of violence, but an act of love! As impossible as it may seem, although He did itContinue reading “Christ in Our Place”

Fake News!

Romans 2:24 – ‘For “the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you,” as it is written.’ Paul handles so many topics in his introduction to the Romans.

It’s Not a New Message!

Romans 1: 16-17- “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” NKJV Paul wrote theContinue reading “It’s Not a New Message!”

What Will You Say?

John 1:22-23 -Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?” He said: “I am ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Make straight the way of the Lord,” ’ as the prophet Isaiah said.” NKJV A fewContinue reading “What Will You Say?”

An Amazing Opportunity!

Genesis 5:21-24 -When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah. Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him. ESV I’ve set for myself a newContinue reading “An Amazing Opportunity!”

A Bold Witness!

John 9:32-33 – “Since the world began it has been unheard of that anyone opened the eyes of one who was born blind. If this Man were not from God, He could do nothing.” NKJV If you read my previous blog, “A Bold Example”, you will remember that I wrote that this is one ofContinue reading “A Bold Witness!”

A Bold Example!

John 9:6-7 – “When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and cameContinue reading “A Bold Example!”

Be Very Sure!

2 Corinthians 5:1 – “For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” NKJV This morning I awoke to a song in my heart, and as I was singing it I felt an urgency in myContinue reading “Be Very Sure!”
