I Will...

Life is sure full of many obstacles, challenges, and tribulations, is it not? And, oh so much more for the believer in, and follower of, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Job 5:7 states, "For man is born for trouble, as sparks fly upward."  And Psalm 34:19 states, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous." Temptations from wi…

Do We Quench the Spirit

Two weeks ago we looked at what resisting the Spirit was, who does it, and how it affected God. In Acts 7:51, we saw the word or action used by Stephen, the only place in the Bible where that word is used, and found that the regenerating work of the Spirit was resisted. And this was done by those who are not born again. And last week we looked at w…

Do We Grieve The Spirit

Last week we looked at what is meant by resisting the Spirit, what it comes from and the consequences accompanied by it. We saw that the peril of resisting the Spirit is that of those who are not born again. And we also found that the only place in the Bible that this word resisting is used, is in the sermon of Stephen in Acts 7:51. We see there th…

Do We Resist the Spirit

Oh, the beautiful Spirit, the blessed third Person of the Trinity! The one who is referred to as the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, the Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of His Son, and the Spirit of Christ, the One who glorifies the Son, the One who brings salvation to sinners, enabling them to receive it. God, in the great work of saving sinners, g…

He Will Ask, He Will Keep

What a blessing it is to have in our hands today, a transcript of Jesus' words to His disciples and His prayer that we see in the gospel of John. From the last supper on, Jesus has some incredible words and promises to share with His apostles and those who would believe in Him through their word. He even gives them a new commandment that they love …

The Love of Christ

How great is the love of Christ, the love that surpasses knowledge? (Eph. 3:19) In the preceding verse, Paul refers to it as having a breadth, and length, and height, and depth; and that we may be able to comprehend with all the saints what that is. This is worth thinking about and contemplating for a while. Since Paul says the love of Christ surpa…

He Is Our Portion

Psalm 73:26, "My flesh and my heart may fail me, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Portion simply meaning supply, or satisfaction, everything that we need. The Lord of heaven above is our portion. Psalm 84:11 says, "The Lord God is a sun and shield, the Lord gives grace and glory, no good thing does He withhold from those…

Quietness Under Afflictions

In 35 years of being a Christian, lots of things happen. Some good things happen, some bad things happen. But the lions share have been good. For the "Lord is merciful or gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindeness."(Psa.103:8) The Lord always is providing a great or plentiful quantity or supply. "He can do far more a…

Love Surpassing Knowledge

Could someone love us with a love so great that it would go above our comprehension? And if there were such a love toward us, how would we respond to that? And if there were such a love toward us, where could we find it? It is wonderful to hear words like, "I love you," I will always love you," or I loved you the moment I laid eyes on you." What wo…

To Be Or Not To Be (A Member)

The Christian enjoys communion with the Father in love, with the Son in grace, and with the Holy Spirit in comfort. And in the context of being a committed, devoted, loyal part of a local assembly of God, enjoying weekly, a rendezvous for joint fellowship with God, which is the best fellowship we can have with one another. Church membership is a bl…
