Jesus Christ’s Lesson on Prayer

In Matthew 6:5-15, Jesus Christ taught a lesson on prayer. Let’s look at it. In verses 5-6, the Lord tells us to pray in our closet, teaching us that He wants us to meet Him in a private place every day. In verse 7-8, the Lord says not to use “vain repetitions.” God is not impressed when we repeat the same prayer over and over. This is a practice of the heathen and is not to be part of a Christian’s prayers to Almighty God. In verse 9, the Lord shows how......

The Power of Gratitude

If you are hurting or suffering in some other way, you are not the first person to go through this! In the Bible, we have record of many of God’s people who have suffered. David, a man after God’s own heart, suffered as well. In Psalms 77 verses 7 through 9 we read of his frustration with his trials. After expressing his frustration, he realized that the truth of his position with the Lord was not changed by his current-day circumstances. Circumstances can often make us “feel” like God doesn’t care any......

Thy Law Do I Love

The longest chapter in the Bible is Psalm 119. That chapter is all about God’s Word. In one section, David expressed his love for God’s Word and related how that love affected his life. We can glean much from his lesson. Having a proper attitude toward the Word of God will truly make a difference in your Christian life. In verse 161 David explained how his “awe” for God’s Word helped him through his trials. Loving God’s Word does not mean we won’t have problems, but it will help us respond to......

How Can A Christian Choose The Right Friends?

According to the Bible, friendship is a good thing, Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.” However, the Bible gives many warnings about the importance of choosing our friends carefully. It’s been said that your future is no greater than your friends and that you are known by your friends (often guilt by......

God's Cure for Bitterness

Many Christians struggle with past wrongs and find their joy and effectiveness hindered as a result. God made us and knows our capacity to remember. He also has given us the means to overcome these types of problems. Bitterness is warned against in the Bible. It is the result of not forgiving someone. God warns in Hebrews 12:15 that bitterness in one person can defile others. That’s because bitterness is like a cancer that eats from the inside out and eventually affects those around us if it’s not dealt with. The foundation......

Is The Bible Preserved

Most conservative Christians believe that the Bible is Inspired (written by God, see 2Timothy 3:16), Powerful (see Hebrews 4:12), and Authoritative (see John 12:48 and Titus 2:15). However, there is much disagreement among conservative Christians about whether or not the Bible is Preserved. Before we look at what the majority of Christians believe regarding preservation, let’s establish a few Biblical points.1)God has promised to preserve His Word. Psalms 12:6-7 reads, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep......

Worship is for Whom?

There is much confusion in the churches today about the subject of “worship”. Because mankind is inherently prideful, the temptation is for worship to become man-centered instead of God-centered. In many circles, worship has become entertainment rather than the exultation of a holy God. Statements like “I enjoyed the worship today” are meaningless. Whether or not we enjoy worship is not the point. The question to ask is, “Was God glorified?” True Biblical worship can be offered in many forms. Examples include singing (Hebrews 2:12), giving (Matthew 2:11), and honouring the Word......

Proofs of the Bible

Science (I Ti 6:20) Though the Bible is not a science book, it is scientifically sound and not ridiculous, as other books written during the same time period (pre-scientific days). Astronomy: Ge 1:1, Heaven created 1st. Taught to 1875 earth center of universe. Ge 1:16, Sun bigger than moon, believed until 1600 that moon bigger.
