  • The Gift Unwrapped 

    by Ron Moore

The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After...

  • LYDIA'S CONVERSION

  • LYDIA'S CONVERSION -  

    BY CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON

    In Morning and Evening


    "Whose heart the Lord opened." --Acts 16:14

    In Lydia's conversion there are many points of interest. It was brought about by providential circumstances. She was a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, but just at the right time for hearing Paul we find her at Philippi; providence, which is the handmaid of grace, led her to the...

  • IT JUST DOES NOT BELONG!

  • IT JUST DOES NOT BELONG!   

    BY THEODORE EPP

    In Strength for the Journey

    1 John 3:1-10

    To live under the dominion of sin without any evidence of righteousness demonstrates that the person has not been born again. The reasons for this are clearly pointed out in some of these verses.

    First John 3:4, for example, says that sin is contrary to the law of God. Verse 5 says that sin is contrary to the missio...

  • Excuse Me!

  • …whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. —Matthew 20:26-28 

     

    When an opportunity for service presents itself, so often our first tendency is to weasel out of it. Normal? Yes! I know this one well… I am King Weasel. ...

  • Christlikeness

  • Christlikeness -

    by Ron Moore  

    Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else. - Galatians 6:4

    Comparing ourselves to others. We do it all the time, don't we? From appearance to attitudes, from education to experience, from clothes to cars to career, we like to see how we are matching up with those around us. But he...

  • HIS UNFINISHED WORK - 

    BY THEODORE EPP

    I John 2:1-6

    First John 2:1 could be translated: "These things write I unto you that ye do not commit a single act of sin." John was not dealing with habitual sin but with single acts of sin.

    This is a high standard, and you may wonder if it is possible for a child of God to successfully live this way. We need to realize what Christ has actually done for us.
