Holy Love

August 1st, 2021 by

“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not Keep reading…

Love Each Other As Jesus Has Loved Us

May 1st, 2021 by

Matthew 20:25 But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you Keep reading…

THE Good Fight

March 1st, 2021 by

For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me Keep reading…

Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman. But no one asked, “What do you want?” or “Why are you talking with her?” Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me everything Keep reading…

What Does Lordship Mean?

August 1st, 2020 by

When I served as Assistant Pastor in Spencerport, New York, there was this one teenage boy who picked up an annoying little habit that he found amusing. Whenever someone would make a declarative statement like, for example, “Ok, we are going to have the lesson now,” this student would ask, “Are we?” If we would Keep reading…

Hidden Thoughts

May 1st, 2020 by

We are all creatures of our thoughts. Whether we like it or not. Our thoughts spill into our actions. Our thoughts, private though they are, are part of who we are. The human person is a strange mixture of seen and unseen. Spoken and hidden. Public and private. Our outward actions are often merely the Keep reading…

Jesus the troublemaker. Not usually the title we as Christians attribute to our Lord, is it? Today we are finding that when you interject the teachings and mindset of Christ into political or social/cultural conversations, people get upset. This happens regardless of the political mindset you are speaking to. It’s not that we disagree per Keep reading…

The Spiritual Discipline Of Self-Examination

February 1st, 2019 by

We live in a time when self-expression is rampant! Online communication has given every individual the opportunity to share their opinion. Blogs, forums, message boards, Twitter, Facebook, etc., etc., etc. Social media “opportunities” abound for those interested in self-expression. But in the midst of all this communication, one thing seems to be woefully neglected by Keep reading…

The Danger Of Preference

September 1st, 2018 by

“That was good sermon.” That is a loaded statement. It holds many more connotations and questions. How do I personally measure what makes a sermon “good”?What sermons do I consider “not good”? Sermons have become something we find ourselves evaluating more often than receiving. We find ourselves saying or hearing others say things like. “That Keep reading…

Please Explain The Words Of Jesus On The Cross: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” What Does This Mean? Did God Actually Forsake Jesus On The Cross?

March 7th, 2018 by

These words of Jesus on the cross are perhaps the most heart wrenching words our Lord spoke in the hours of his execution. We know that throughout his life and ministry Jesus was in constant fellowship and communion with His Father. Yet here our Lord seems to be saying that God the Father has turned Keep reading…

Who Is God?

September 9th, 2017 by

Who is God? This question defines our very existence. With our culture’s popular opinion straying further and further from biblical values, this question is being answered by more and more voices with vastly differing opinions. So who is right? How do we know who God is? What is He like? Can we even know? Absolutely. Keep reading…

Sometimes our conversations lead to misunderstandings. We hear our brothers and sisters in Christ saying things like “God has called me” or “God told me” or “God led me.” Those experiences are real and special and meaningful and I do not wish to belittle them in any way. Indeed, many times in my Christian life Keep reading…

Does The Bible Say We Have To Pray To Be Saved (As In The Sinner’s Prayer) Or Just Believe?

May 1st, 2016 by

The sinner’s prayer can indeed and often has been sincerely used to express the faith and repentance of the covert. However, the sinner’s prayer is not some mystical spiritual formula which secures salvation upon utterance. Our Lord knows the heart of all, and no mind is hidden from him (Heb 4:13). The Lord is not Keep reading…

Who Are The 144,000 Saved In The Book Of Revelation?

February 12th, 2016 by

Who are the 144,000 in the Book of Revelation? Are there a predetermined number of people who will be saved? Most of the confusion behind this question comes from the Jehovah Witnesses. They teach that the 144,000 are an elect group of believers who will be chosen by God to go to heaven and rule Keep reading…

What Are Some Signs Of Genuine, Saving Faith?

November 1st, 2014 by

Indeed this is one of the most important questions in the Christian life! When answering that question we must first ask and answer the following. How do we truly examine our own faith? Paul the apostle urges us to do so! 2 Corinthians 13:5 says: “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; Keep reading…

Should Christians Be Tolerant Of Other People’s Religious Beliefs?

February 1st, 2013 by

In this age of “Tolerance” this question is becoming more and more common in the church. The common place of this question is not a production of the church itself but rather the culture having its influence on the church. Let me try to explain what I mean. The issue before us as we talk Keep reading…
