All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.                                                      

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Some Proven Weapons in the Fight for Holiness

Topic:  Pursuit of Holiness


When Paul says to put to death the deeds of the body “by the Spirit” (Romans 8:13), I take him to mean that we should use the one weapon in the Spirit’s armor that is used to kill. Namely,.. read more


The Transforming Grace of God


God’s ultimate will is for every believer to be conformed to the likeness of His Son. His grace is responsible for our rebirth, and from that point it directs, moves, and influences us to become increasingly Christ-like. In that way, we can say with the apostle Paul, “By the grace of God I am what I am” (1 Corinthians 15:10). ... read more


Revisiting the Great Commission of the Lord Christ


As Peter later wrote to a church, ‘In your hearts set apart Christ as Lord’ (1 Peter 3:15, 16). The most fundamental element in witnessing to Christ is that we are in a right relationship with the Son of God, that He is our Lord over everything in our lives, over every interest, every concern and every affection. ... read more


Small but Powerful

- Faith


Faith is the focus of today’s passage as we resume our exposition of Matthew. Having come down from the Mount of Transfiguration (17:9–13), Jesus and His disciples run into a crowd Apparently, He gets temporarily separated from the Twelve because a distraught father updates Jesus on an encounter he and his son had with the disciples alone. The man asked Christ’s followers to heal his epileptic son but they were unable to restore the boy (vv. 14–16). ... read more


Resurrection - Christ the First Fruit


Why is it that the resurrection of Christ is of so much importance? Upon it we have said that the whole system of Christianity rests; for ‘if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain ye are yet in your sins’ (1 Corinthians 15:14,17). The divinity of Christ finds its surest proof in his resurrection since the apostle tells us that Christ was ... read more

Serving as a Family


A few nights ago, I read my three kids a bedtime story about a missionary who spent 30 years of his life serving in Nepal. I realized it wasn't much of a lullthem-to-sleep story, though, as I fielded excited questions and enthusiastic interest. How will God use my children to build His
kingdom? I wondered. Will they serve Him overseas, immersed in a foreign culture? Will they remain in North America, shining as lights in a secular workplace? Whatever their futures hold, how can I help mold them into world changers? ... read more


The Spiritually Self-Seeking Church

My Utmost for His Glory


Till all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto  the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ… -Ephesians 4:13

Reconciliation means the restoring of the relationship between the entire human race and God, putting it back to what God designed it to be. This is what Jesus Christ did in redemption. The church ceases to be spiritual when it becomes ... read more
