What to do When We Fall!
March 09, 2014 10:11 AM PDT
This is the reality of the true question and is not, as some may think, what to do IF we fall. We are going to sin, and sin again. We can't be perfect, but we can put on perfection through Jesus Christ, to be buried with Him in baptism. Then, and only then can we find forgiveness through repentance, turning away from sin, a change, and then being restored to God.If Anyone Loves the World...

Clearly, we are faced with the choice of either loving the Lord God, or loving the things in this world. That's a choice of living eternally with God, or spending eternity with the consequences of a life here without God and eternally remaining as an enemy of God. Where does your love lie?Commit to Spiritual Growth
February 23, 2014 10:16 AM PST
Like any process of life that works on a span of time, it has to grow, mature, and get older. Our spiritual maturity also has a beginning and requires a life of growth. If you do not commit to nurturing your spiritual wellbeing, just as with any living thing, it will die. Without growth, knowledge, and wisdom, your faith is left a victim of every temptation that it comes across, and is left for dead. Commit to growth - commit to study yourself approved unto God.Examine Your Faith
February 16, 2014 10:20 AM PST
This examination can't be performed just once-in-a-while, but is a test that comes everyday in life. One must check to see if it is a faith that has works of obedience, demonstrates love, and longs for a hope to put on and be with Jesus Christ. A healthy faith is required to remain in contact with God's grace and mercy.I Love God With All My Heart

Considering all that God provides for us and the life we are honored to have and share, a fundamental commandment requires we love God - and how much we should love God. Having a nature of love that we are created with, it shouldn't have to take a commandment to compel us to love God. It shouldn't have to take the sacrifice of His Son to compel us to love Him, but it's a reminder of sorts, that we must start there with a love for Him before we can express that true love for one another.Are You the Salt and Light You Have Been Called to Be?
February 02, 2014 02:49 PM PST
Jesus' teaching here uses symbolic metaphors to describe the Christian's usefulness to others in the world. Consider the ways salt and light influence the actions of those that need the assistance of salt and light. The useful purpose that they bring and the strength that they hold when they are needed, make a strong consideration for the life of a Christian.A Time to Choose
January 26, 2014 10:19 AM PST
Life is fraught with many urgent and important choices, of which, many of those have eternal meaning and consequence. It's hard to make good, meaningful choices at times, and it is so important that we know how to remain within God's will for us. Who have you chosen to serve?Lord, Make Me a Servant
January 19, 2014 10:20 AM PST
It is quite easy to see the model of servitude in the lives of many from the New Testament beginning with Christ Jesus. Before any of us can begin to do great things for God, the mission of being a servant for God must come first. Knowing what we owe Christ makes us a bondservant to Him.The Hope Within
January 12, 2014 10:00 AM PST
Is there a hope in your life? The appeal of something almost unimaginable and the desire of reward for our convictions can give us a hope. Knowing that our hope is based on a perfect sacrifice given in our stead should prove a hope that has substance and remains substantial through all testing and challenge. That is the hope in our Savior, His redemptive power, and eternal life with Him as our reward.What Is the Church Called?
January 05, 2014 10:27 AM PST
The collection of saints, the fellowship or assembly of Christians goes by a name that has a common reference centered on the Father by whom it was started by. That group of believers, being obedient to their God, are known by name to their God, and it is God who appointed His Son to die for and begin the Church of the saved, the Bride of Christ. That reference, therefore, takes on the name of the body of Christ, that body being the church, the church of Christ.
