“A genuine Gospel-faith has nothing selfish about it – it never makes a man think only of his own salvation. It stirs him up, on the contrary, to concern about the souls of others. I always suspect that those who care nothing whether their brethren are saved or not, must in reality be ignorant or thoughtless about their own state.”
~ J.C. Ryle

Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you.
(1 Corinthians 15:58)
The Lord’s blessings are different to different people. Some people suffer physically or through illness, the only important thing is, how do we react? Some people suffer spiritually, because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Again, the only importance is, how do we react?
There is no need for us to chase after miracles, but if we need a miracle God… Continue

Rapture and Second Advent (1Thess :2:19)
Rapture is used as Parousia in Greek, which means personal presence. This word refers to the rapture not for second advent. These two distinct comings are separated by several years. the rapture is the 1st of the two comings, not a coming to earth but in the air (middle of heaven) for the… Continue

The great Jewish physicist Albert Einstein once said something like this: "We need to be able to reduce everything to its smallest form, but not beyond that." There are times when we need to do this with Christianity. We must know our roots, we must know what is at the heart of a matter or our knowledge remains frighteningly superficial and distorted. So let us begin a graduated reduction of the faith once delivered to the saints (see Jude 1:3). If I had to reduce the whole Bible to four… Continue

"He who thinks it necessary to cultivate the favour of the world is not far from betraying the interests of God and his church." - Quote taken from Adam Clarke's Commentary on Luke 9:61
Imagine laboring in the ministry with the Great Apostle Paul. How exhilarating this experience would be! But can you imagine anyone enjoying that great privilege or having that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and then leaving it for other things that are mundane and earthly?

TEXT : MATTHEW 15:8
"These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me."
Apprearances can deceive people into thinking that they are "spiritully" healthy. In Matthew 15:1&2, after the Pharisees accused Jesus and His followers of breaking religious traditions by not washing their hands before they ate, Jesus said that the Pharisees had laid aside commands of God for man-made, religious traditions. He… Continue

I have chosen the way of truth; Your judgments I have laid before me.
Psalm 119:30, NKJV
From the time we make the choice to open our eyes and get out of bed in the morning until we make the choice to go back to bed and close our eyes in the evening, our days are filled with a series of choices. We choose
where we go,
what we do,
and how we behave.
Our own lives, reputations, relationships, careers,… Continue

For work to perform and the skill and strength to perform it:
For a time to play when the day's work was done, and for a glad heart to enjoy… Continue

God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.
Hebrews 11:16, NKJV
After the long journey of life, we are going to look up and see heaven. We're going to hear voices lifted in songs of praise. We're going to see the glory of God radiating from within, and we're going to long for home. But we will be forbidden to enter. Heaven is closed to us because we are too dirty in our sin to enter it.

“We are not to be ashamed to confess Christ before men, and to let others know what He has done for our souls. If we have found peace through His blood and been renewed by His Spirit, we must not shrink from avowing it, on every proper occasion. It is not necessary to blow a trumpet in the streets, and force our experience on everybody’s notice.
“All that is required is a willingness to acknowledge Christ as our Master, without flinching from the ridicule or persecution… Continue
