The Price of a Soul

To the Children of the Kingdom; May the peace and grace of God our Father, and of our Lord and Savior Jesus-Christ, be with you. Have you ever considered what a soul is worth? Today, we will not speak from the perspective of the blood of Jesus (His sacrifice), but in terms of the implications of that…

The Grace To Pick Up My Cross

May the peace and grace of God our Father, and of His Son our Lord and Savior Jesus-Christ, be with you. But grace, Oh the grace of God…what does it mean? As I am seating here in my home in the late hours of the night, I cannot but conclude that, in my day, much…

What Shall I do to inherit Eternal Life?

There are at least two occasions where Jesus, when He was on earth, was asked this question directly: “What shall I do to inherit Eternal Life?” If we think about it, today, we essentially ask the same question, just differently: How do I know I am saved? Or, Can I lose my salvation? Christ is…

I wish above all things…3 John 1:2

It is safe to say that for many Christians, 3 John 1:2 is one of those “favorite” verses in the Bible. But the reason this is case, as this short study will attempt to demonstrate, is that it is often misinterpreted. 3 John 1:2 – Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper…

Intercession: God Is Stunned! (Part 2 of 2)

We Should All be Like Epaphras To develop an appreciation for just how God values those who intercede, consider Epaphras, mentioned three times in the scriptures. Colossians 1:7 – As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ God calls Epaphras a “faithful minister” of Christ….

Intercession: God Is Stunned! (Part 1 of 2)

My brothers and sisters in Christ, as I look at the scriptures, I believe I am beginning to realize just how much God wants us to intercede. It is one of our greatest responsibilities, and yet, we are failing so many times at carrying it. As described in Isaiah 59, when we do not intercede…

How Do I Seek “First” the Kingdom of God? (Part 2 of 2)

What does “first” mean in Matthew 6:33? So how do we explain the word “first” in Matthew 6, if there is no “second” as we argued in part 1? I am not a Greek scholar, and therefore I do not master the order of words in Greek sentences. Nevertheless, in light of the evidences already…
