Warning Against Respect of Persons

My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality. 2 For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, 3 and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, “You sitContinue reading “Warning Against Respect of Persons”

Motive

11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast,Continue reading “Motive”

Mercy

Blessed are the merciful,For they shall obtain mercy. Matthew 5:7 NKJV The online definition of mercy is compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.

Pay Attention

The heart of the prudent gets knowledge,    and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge. Proverbs 18:15 MEV We get knowledge by studying the word of God. We should want to invest in our belief. Jesus said, ‘where your treasure is there will your heart be also’ (Matthew 6:21). What are we treasuring today? Is itContinue reading “Pay Attention”

Trust Him

Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.20 Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield.21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.22 Let thyContinue reading “Trust Him”

You are on the Wrong Path if You are Walking with the World

Proverbs 19:11 KJV The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; And it is his glory to pass over a transgression. Jesus said to forgive seventy times seven times (Matthew 18:22). We are to overcome evil with good (Romans 12:21). Be patient and kind in the face of adversity (James 1 & 5:10-11). Be humble and inContinue reading “You are on the Wrong Path if You are Walking with the World”

Ambassadors For Christ

2 Corinthians 5:20-21 NKJV Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. As Ambassadors for Christ we (His children) represent and proclaim what JesusContinue reading “Ambassadors For Christ”

Prince of Life

Acts 3:15 KJV And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. Jesus, the Prince of life. There is no other name where men can be saved (Acts 4:12). There is no other way. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6). Not onlyContinue reading “Prince of Life”
