What a Relief!

Do you think that being a Christian is hard because there are so many rules to follow? “Do this! Don’t do that! Act this way!” Is Christianity about how well you are able to keep the rules? And is God angry with you because you are not keeping the rules very well. If so, you’ve […]

When Will We Learn?

Are you still struggling to be righteous and still doing your best to sanctify yourself because you desire to please God? How many more times do you have to fail before you come to your senses and believe the Bible that “by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified?” Will you continue […]

Are You Laboring in Vain?

They call it your “cutting edge.” It’s what puts you ahead of the competition. It gives you the advantage you need to succeed. It’s the key to your long term progress. If you have it, you need to retain it. If you lose it, you should take steps to recover it immediately. That’s true in […]

Will Grace Cause You to Sin?

Have you ever heard some well-meaning Christian say that too much of grace will cause people to sin? Probably. That warning, unfortunately, accomplishes just the opposite of what is intended. Inadvertently, it is actually encouraging believers to take their eyes off of Jesus to some degree (however small), in order to

Left Behind

If you are old enough, you may recall a song that was quite popular among evangelicals decades ago, “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus.” In one of its verses, the worshipper sings, “The Cross before me, the world behind me…no turning back.” It is a powerful song of consecration. It reminds us to take our […]

What Will You Choose?

You know the story. God made man in His own image. Then said to him, “Adam, of all the trees in the Garden you may eat, except of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The day you eat of it you will surely die.” This was no threat. Just a warning. An […]
