Temptation is something a Christian faces daily. Most don’t like that. But let’s consider temptation in a positive light.
We often get into trouble when we expose the devil. He has the power to express his displeasure by increasing attacks and temptations toward us. But he must be exposed…
We cannot have peace until we clear our conscience. Even if we have wronged others and they know nothing of it, return and make restitution.
In the Law of Moses, restitution was applied to both non-deliberate and deliberate acts against others. How different our society would be today if we still applied these principles to our daily lives!
Many professing Christians have failed to deal honestly with the principle of restitution. It is imperative that we look at this principle and then look inward to determine whether or not we have met the criteria of this principle.
What does the fear of man look like? Brother James lists three ways fear of man traps us and gives three antidotes to overcome fear of man…
Lukewarmness is more repulsive to Christ than spiritual coldness. His words in verse 16 express His nauseating reaction to lukewarmness in the church.
“O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because His mercy endures forever.” This invitation to thank God reminds us that He is good. He possesses everlasting mercy and is kind.
The institution of marriage is taking a beating at the hands of an ungodly society. It’s time we stand up, as many others have, in defense of marriage as God designed it from the beginning.
A godly woman is a great treasure to those around her. There is no precious gem that could equal this treasure. Proverbs 21:30 says that “favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain…”
There is nothing more beautiful than a young woman who portrays the character of her King. She does not have to possess a striking physical beauty, but rather the beauty of a holy, pure life.
You and I cannot reach God to hurt Him as we might our fellowmen. But did you know that you can still hurt God? What about when He sees us abuse our spouse, or child, or fellow employee?
As we get older, we anticipate heaven more. When we think of a place where sin has never entered, and where sorrow, death, pain, and tears have no place, our desire to experience it grows.
Fear comes in many forms and it may become a real hindrance to our faith and trust in God…. Life brings continuing reasons to fear….
The World Health Organization told us a long time ago that a major health pandemic was overdue. But few of us expected it to happen. Until it did…
My heart hurts for the brokenness that sin has brought into the lives of people today. Many of our callers tell us that sin doesn’t exist.
Who are you? The real you, not the one you put on in the morning. The real you, as God sees you, not the you that you portray yourself as…

Paul challenged the Corinthians to follow him as he followed Christ. Are you following Christ so closely that it would be safe for you to give someone a challenge like that?
The Lord has finally brought me to the place that He had always intended for me. A place where I cannot take one step without my hand in His hand.
Jesus left the pinnacle of glory, to be born in a stable in Bethlehem. Then at the end, He went a dark and dreadful second mile to the grave.
According to Isaiah 53:1, Christ’s appearance. wasn’t outstanding. He wasn’t handsome. He did not stand out in a crowd. Where then is the beauty found in Christ?
Never think that your particular problems and tests are not important to God. Read the first couple chapters of the book of Job. This discussion between God and Satan in the book of Job is a rare glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes in God’s dealing with you and me.
Christ calls us to face our commission in the work of the harvest of souls. He points us to the harvest and inspires us to take part in it. He urges us to consider its readiness and to not make excuses.
Did you awake this morning and harbor doubts about your Christian life? Maybe you did not feel like a Christian. Did you know that if we allow the devil to do so, he will attempt to lead us to an experiential, feeling-based relationship with God that is really no relationship at all?
We are the product of our yesterdays. From yesterday came the influences and experiences that have affected our lives to make us what we are today.
Life is real and there are consequences for every decision that we make. The decision to follow Jesus or not to follow Jesus has consequences that will affect us now and in eternity.
One faithful man on his knees in his closet, interceding for his church and community will have more impact on that church or community than any other single thing he could do?
Look at the Gethsemane experience and the things that Jesus did and said there. Here we will find a guide for how we can resist temptation. I believe Jesus faced His greatest struggle in this garden.
Jesus goes to great length in the Sermon on the Mount to help us understand that there is a higher standard of righteousness than the moral law. He takes issue with what no man had ever questioned; the validity of the law. He declared that to abstain from wrong deeds alone is not sufficient.
