Psalm 22:3: “But thou art holy, O thou who inhabitest the praises of Israel.” God lived in praises of Israel to Him.

Most every believer is aware of the parable of the sower. In that parable the sower went out to sow. 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? Matthew 6 sets out some boundaries for our prayer life. "Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.”...

At what is called the last supper (before his crucifixion) which Jesus had with his twelve apostles, he instituted a remembrance which represents what he did for those who want to believe. “And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.

Romans 6:16 – 23 declares the contrast between sin and righteousness. Let’s start at the end and then consider the other verses. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23) Someone once said if that is the best that sin can pay, I don’t want to work there. Wages are earned by work while a gift...

It seems like every time we turn around somebody wants us to give something to this cause or that one. Telemarketers and bulk mailers, people on the street and on television make their pitch regularly. Many of these causes are legitimate and honest. But what does God, in His Word, have to say about giving. John 3:16: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten...

The Bible tells us that when we are born again we are called "peculiar." Today our first reaction to this word is to think of it as meaning strange and different from the norm.

The first chapter of II Peter gives us some very helpful information regarding our walk as believers. “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, …” (II Peter 1:2)  Notice that this does not say grace and peace be added unto you.
