As we go through life we are constantly faced with decisions to make concerning our walk with God. As believers we know we have the privilege of going to God for guidance and direction, but do we always take advantage of that? Or do we get prideful and think we can figure things out by ourselves. II Kings 5:1-14 gives an account of a man who almost rejected his own healing because...

In our relationships with others sometimes we just let words flow out of our mouth and don't consider what we are saying until it's too late. How many times, after we think about some comment we've made, do we say to ourselves, "I wish I hadn't said that. It really doesn't bless anyone?"
God wants us to think about what we speak. "Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my...

Some of the seed which he sowed fell by the wayside, some in stony places, some among thorns and some on good ground. Later in this record from the Scriptures we learn that the sower sowed God’s Word. There is another illustration in Galatians 6 which deals with...

Some memorize "prayers." Some read a prepared "prayer." Should prayer be a religious ritual or a way of life which involves practicing the presence of God?

Romans 6:16 – 23 declares the contrast between sin and righteousness.

Wages are earned by work while a gift...
