πŸ‘‘ Contextualizing the Gospel

The contextualizing of the gospel is essentially an attempt to accommodate social change, culture, tradition, and religious views of other so-called faiths when presenting the gospel. The Word of God is then conformed, as needed, to adapt to these areas more effectively to minister to others.

For example, the … ➑

πŸ‘‘ He Gave Thanks

At the institution of the Lord’s Supper, as He took the bread and the wine, we read that he β€œgave thanks” (Matt.26: 26,27; Luke 22:19,20).

Surely on this occasion He did not give thanks for food supplied! He was handling the symbols of His broken body and His shed … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ How the Spirit Helps

β€œThe Spirit… helpeth our infirmities” (Rom. 8.26).

A chain is no stronger than its weakest link. If one link in a chain will hold one hundred pounds, another fifty, and another ten, the chain as a whole will hold ten pounds, no more. This is why James 2:10 says:… ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Great Debate!

When Paul wrote that “young women” with “husbands” and “children” are to be “keepers at home” (Titus 2:4,5), the exact meaning of that latter phrase has inspired debates among Christians of epic proportion! At the core of this discussion we usually find the issue of whether or not a … ➑

πŸ‘‘ A Little Space of Grace

“And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the Lord…” (Ezra 9:8).

If you know anything about the history of Israel, it was a constant series of them sinning, God punishing them, them repenting, and then “a little space” of grace in between, such as this … ➑

πŸ‘‘ House Rules

When Paul left the island of Crete, he left Titus behind to “ordain elders in every city” (Tit. 1:5). As we read on, Paul explains why the churches in those citiesΒ neededΒ spiritual leadersΒ urgently:

“For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the

πŸ‘‘ Mouths That Must Be Shut

Religious deceivers have always been common, even back in Bible days. That’s what prompted the Apostle Paul to warn Titus,

“…there are many… vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped…” (Titus 1:10,11).

But how did Paul expect Titus to go about shutting … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ How to Comfort a Seasoned Saint

If you’ve ever found yourself ministering to an ailing brother or sister in Christ, the Apostle Paul gives us some direction in his ministry to the Thessalonians. Paul introduced those dear saints to the doctrine of the pre-tribulation Rapture during his initial visit to Thessalonica (II Thes. 2:5). After … ➑

πŸ‘‘ An Old-Fashioned Doctrine

Sanctification is not a negative matter: β€œDon’t do this” and β€œDon’t do that.” It is rather the positive truth that God wants us for Himself as a sacred possession, much as a bridegroom considers his bride his very own in a special, sacred way.

Bible sanctification is a twofold … ➑

πŸ‘‘ This Little Light of Mine… πŸ•―

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God…We then, as workers together with Him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain” (2 Cor. 5:20, 6:1).

πŸ‘‘ Christian Conduct

A man’s conduct, in Scripture, is called his β€œwalk”! The Bible has much to say about how we walk, morally and spiritually. Many β€œwalk after their own lusts” (II Pet. 3:3) and β€œwalk in darkness” (John 12:35). Some even β€œwalk in craftiness” (II Cor. 4:2) trying to lead others … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ How Slow Is Your Belly?

“The Cretians are… slow bellies” (Titus 1:12)

“Slow bellies” is a figure of speech that is generally taken to meanΒ lazy gluttons,Β and that could be. But the Greek word for “belly” is usually translated “womb” by our KJV translators, and the word for “slow” is usually translatedΒ barren. ➑

πŸ‘‘ Even If…

When the Babylonian multitudes prostrated themselves in worship before the golden god which Nebuchadnezzar had erected, three young Hebrews refused to bow and remained standing, erect and alone.

When called before Nebuchadnezzar to answer for their impudence and threatened with death in a fiery furnace, they answered:

“Our God

πŸ‘‘ Our Loved Ones in Heaven

“Do our loved ones in Heaven remember us?”

Yes, they do. To begin with, when Samuel was called up from Paradise by the witch of Endor, Samuel remembered David and Saul and his sons (1 Sam. 28:15-19).

Also, we know that there will beΒ recognitionΒ in Heaven because our … ➑

πŸ‘‘ From A Father to His Son

“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus”(2 Tim. 2:1).

As Paul prepared to leave this life, he longed to leave Timothy with a few parting instructions to encourage him in the faith. The apostle knew that his young friend was easily discouraged. … ➑

πŸ‘‘ God’s Faithfulness And Ours

Many people suppose that salvation is God’s reward to those who do their best to live good lives. This is not so, for God’s Word says of those who are saved:

β€œWho hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according

πŸ‘‘ Inexpressible Joy

Have you ever noticed that the Apostle Paul never speaks of his love for Christ? Rather he keeps talking about Christ’s wonderful love to him. Neither does he exhort us to love Christ, but keeps telling us how Christ loved β€” and loves, us. This is consistent with the … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Will the Earth Be Destroyed?

…the earth…shall be burned up…all these things shall be dissolved…” (2 Pet. 3:10,11).

Paul uses that same word “dissolved” to describe the dissolution of our physical bodies when we die, saying, “if our earthly house of this tabernacle wereΒ dissolved, we have a building of God…eternal … ➑

πŸ‘‘ His Great Love πŸ’ž

“But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us” (Eph. 2:4).

God’s Word declares that all have sinned (Rom. 3:23), and sin separates us from a holy God who can never allow one sin in His presence. Unless our sins are taken away, … ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Noble Bereans

Many Christian groups and organizations call themselves Bereans, but it is surprising how few people know what a true Berean is.

The 17th chapter of Acts relates how Paul called upon his kinsmen at Thessalonica and for three sabbath days β€œreasoned with them out of the Scriptures,” trying to … ➑
