Why Do Christians Suffer?

As Christians, we like the thought of sharing in Christ's glory, but what about sharing in His suffering? Jesus took care of the death penalty once and for all so we don't ever have to worry about that again. But the Bible teaches that we must suffer times of trial if we are to share in the glory. Is it worth it? Read what Paul says in Romans 8:18: ...For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the…

Are You A Checklist Christian?

Are you a checklist Christian? Do you keep a running list of all the things that you've done hoping that you will obtain favor with God? Do you tithe, religiously attend church service and quote scriptures in order to prove that you're righteous?

Is Politically Correct Biblically Correct?

Now more than ever is the time to allow the Word of God to become the final authority in your life. Societal norms and values have declined to accept the perversity and lies of Satan. As Christians, our success is based on whether or not we choose to walk in the Spirit (the Word of God) or to conform to the image of this world’s system, which leads to death. Just because something is accepted by a majority and is “politically correct” doesn’t make it right. The only…

Do All Religions Lead to God?

Christianity, Scientology, Buddhism, Hinduism, Calvinism, Mormonism, Islam, what's the difference?

The Word of God is Food for Your Soul

You have probably heard the phrase “You are what you eat” before, and it is usually a statement that is made in reference to food. However, it can also be applied to the things we “feed” our spirits on a daily basis. The foods we eat are responsible for sustaining our physical bodies and allowing us to maintain good health. Likewise, the prosperity of our …

Who Is God?

The idea of a God who is intimately acquainted with every person on the planet is one that is unfathomable to some people. There are so many beliefs about who God is and what His role is in our lives, that for some, it may seem radical to accept any truth about God. Some believe God is a vague concept, a universal “power” that has no name or face. There are those who subscribe to the belief that God does not personally interact with or speak to men and women and…

The Purpose for Relationships

Did you know that God formed mankind for the purpose of establishing relationships? Genesis 2:18 says that in the beginning, He created Adam, and decided it was not good for him to be alone. The interesting thing about it is that God said alone, not lonely. Because He didn’t want Adam to be alone He created Eve, and said she was help that was “meet” for him, meaning she was someone suitable (or proper) for him. Why did Adam need help? He needed help to develop out…

Receiving A New Identity

Did you know that if you are born again, you are part of a royal family? It doesn’t matter what your background is, the color of your skin, or which side of the tracks you grew up on. Jesus has leveled the playing field for each and every person who chooses to accept Him as Lord and Savior. When we become followers of Christ, something supernatural takes place in our spirits; we are re-created spiritually and have access to everything heaven has to offer. Our job is…

Maintaining Covenant Relationships

If there is one thing that will help us get to the next level in our lives, it is divinely ordained relationships. Understanding the importance of covenant relationships is a critical part of fulfilling the will of God for our lives. There are people God has “hooked” us up with, who are there to impart into and impact our lives so we can do what God has called us to do. It may be their wisdom, expertise, or knowledge that can help us or it may be a specific…
