As His Children

Posted in People on Fri, Nov 30 2007 - 08:33 AM

Many times you will hear people say that we have to be servants of God while others insist that we must be His sons and daughters. In the Old Testament, before Christ died, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were servants of God. Now in the New Testament, after Christ died, we became sons and daughters of God. God adopted us. He made us His sons...

The Desire To Do God's Will

Posted in People on Thu, Nov 29 2007 - 09:10 AM

If any man desires to do His will (God's pleasure), he will know (have the needed illumination to recognize, and can tell for himself) whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking from Myself and of My own accord and on My own authority. - John 7:17 (AMP) If we desire to do God’s will, we will have the needed illumination to ...

Not Of Our Own Doing

Posted in People on Wed, Nov 28 2007 - 08:59 AM

"For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8, AMP). I know that I say this ...

There’s A Whole Lot Of Shaking Going On

Posted in People on Tue, Nov 27 2007 - 09:14 AM

“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,” - Hebrews 12:28. Everything in this world that can be shaken will be shaken.  Even institutions that you don't think can be shaken, like churches and ministries.  Only those things that are built...

God Saves

Posted in People on Mon, Nov 26 2007 - 09:56 AM

"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God" (1 Corinthians 1:18). It is the power of God that saves us.  We do not save people on our own.  It is not our words.  It is not our strength.  It is not our creative ideas that save people.  It is the power of...

What Are You Good At?

Posted in People on Sun, Nov 25 2007 - 09:14 AM

"God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well." - Romans 12:6 (TLB). All of us have certain things that we are good at.  For some, it's teaching or writing.  For others, it is skateboarding or playing baseball.  We are all good at something. The key is to figure out what those things are.  Then we can use them...

God Is Not Schizophrenic

Posted in People on Fri, Nov 23 2007 - 11:32 AM

I have a confession to make.  I yell at the television.  I mostly scream at television preachers who aren’t teaching the Word correctly. It angers me when preachers, which are being watched by the nations, teach the Gospel in a distorted way.  They make people believe they have to work for salvation, healing and miracles.  I’ve heard them ...

What Has God Done For You?

Posted in People on Thu, Nov 22 2007 - 09:40 AM

And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. - Luke 17:16. How many times do we thank God when He does something for us?  Many times we are like the other nine lepers who Jesus healed who rushed off, delighting in their newfound healing.  Instead we need to practice being like the one who did thank...

No One Above Him

Posted in People on Tue, Nov 20 2007 - 09:16 AM

Then the children of Israel did put away Baalim and Ashtaroth, and served the LORD only. - 1 Samuel 7:4 (KJV). They served the Lord only.  How many of us serve the Lord only?  Maybe it is the television that we worship?  Or sports games?  Or our spouse?  Or our cars?  Perhaps our careers.  Anything we put above God is an idol.  God is a...

God's Faith In You

Posted in People on Mon, Nov 19 2007 - 09:25 AM

And Jesus answering saith to them, `Have faith of God; - Mark 11:22 (YLT). This Scripture says that we should have faith. Bible scholars have gone back into the Greek and realized that Jesus wasn't saying to have faith in God.  Instead He was saying to have the faith of God.   Let me tell you a secret: every one of us who is Born-again...

Obtain A God Report

Posted in People on Sun, Nov 18 2007 - 08:50 AM

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. - Hebrews 11:1-2 What is the report that you have received recently? Is it that you are ill? Is it that you are broke? Is it that your child is doing poorly in school? All of these reports are enough to...

The God Of The Impossible

Posted in People on Sat, Nov 17 2007 - 09:59 AM

"He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God" (Romans 4:20). Abraham staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief.  Abraham believed God could do what God said.  He even tried to help God out by sleeping with his wife's maid to produce a child.  Not the right child,...

God Is Faithful

Posted in People on Fri, Nov 16 2007 - 09:11 AM

For many years, God spoke the same command to me: “Cast your cares upon Me.” I would try for awhile, but then I would just give up in frustration. When God would speak that message to me again, I would become upset. I wanted a different message. Not the same one over and over again. Throughout this whole process, God stood by me. He...

Seek Knowledge

Posted in People on Thu, Nov 15 2007 - 12:14 AM

The mind of the prudent is ever getting knowledge, and the ear of the wise is ever seeking (inquiring for and craving) knowledge.  -  Proverbs 18:15 (AMP). People who are prudent are forever trying to get more information, more knowledge.  They devour the Word of God.  Always reading it, studying it, reading books about the Bible and...

Love Through Action

Posted in People on Wed, Nov 14 2007 - 09:31 AM

Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. - 1 John 3:18 My grandmother used to say all the time, "I love you."  Only every time she would do anything for me, she would make sure every one knew that she was the one who did it for me.  Her actions didn't say that she loved me.   Yes, we...

Lifeline

Posted in People on Mon, Nov 12 2007 - 09:20 AM

For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.  For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. — 1 Corinthians 1:17-18. We are to spread the Gospel.  We need not be ...

Who Is Leading You?

Posted in People on Sun, Nov 11 2007 - 10:13 AM

For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. - Romans 8:14 We are the sons and daughters of God.  Then we should be led by the Spirit of God and not our feelings.  Not the devil.  Not the news.  Not by our friends.  We need to be led by the Spirit of God.  We need to be in constant contact with the Spirit of...

Don't Buy Trouble

Posted in People on Sat, Nov 10 2007 - 09:11 AM

Each day has enough trouble of its own - Matthew 6:34.I don't know if you are anything like me, but I am addicted to worry. I have worried about what will happen tomorrow, next week, even five years from now. I have literally worried myself until I had a migraine and an upset stomach. Of course, eighty percent of whatever I worried about...

Jesus Died, But...

Posted in People on Fri, Nov 09 2007 - 08:57 AM

I used to listen to a woman minister on late-night television who took over her husband's ministry after he died.  She and I don't always see eye-to-eye on key points of the Bible.  Although her foundational doctrine is sound.One day she addressed the congregation and said that we don't say, "The troops defend our country, but..." ...

The Truth

Posted in People on Thu, Nov 08 2007 - 09:24 AM

Anyone who speaks against the Son of Man can be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, either in this world or in the world to come.  - Matthew 12:32 (NLT). This Scripture haunted me for a long time.  I had been taught that certain things, such as singing secular music when you are a Believer, is ...

Things Will Change

"Four leprous men...said to one another, 'Why do we sit here until we die?...Let us go over to the camp of the Arameans. If they spare us, we will live; and if they kill us, we will but die.'" - - 2 Kings 7:3-4 (NASB).Why do we sit here until we die?  That is a good question.  Many of us are still stuck in the same situation we were ...

Faith Produces

Posted in People on Tue, Nov 06 2007 - 09:07 AM

So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. - James 2:17 (NLT). If faith doesn't produce good deeds, it is dead.  Faith produces the good deeds.  Most people believe we have to do the good deeds, but they are produced by our faith.  Because we have faith in the promises of God,...
