  • A Faithful Saying: Death with Him – Part 2

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) 2Timothy 2.11-13 This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. (NKJV)For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. Choose death to get life.How foolish and strange our beliefs must appear to the world (1Cor 2.14). If we did not have the Bible, we could still get pretty close to what God requires simply by inverting the world’s wisdom.God uses the lowly, not the mighty. If we want to receive, we give away. […]

  • A Reader Asks: Does Jesus say that a homosexual will not enter into Heaven? I have read in Romans 1:26-32 also 1Cor …

    Question:Does Jesus say that a homosexual will not enter into Heaven? I have read in Romans 1:26-32 also 1Cor 6.9 concerning homosexuality. But Jesus only speaks to us in the four gospels, doesn’t he, so therefore Jesus did not say that a homosexual wouldn’t enter into Heaven. Am I right? Answer:This questions has lots of “mini” questions embedded in it, so let me see if I can dissect them. First, you state that Jesus only speaks to us in the Gospels. NO, you are wrong. Jesus does NOT only speak to us in the four Gospels. Jesus directly and physically speaks in Acts and Revelation as well as the Gospels. However, the foundation of the question is wrong to begin with. The entire Bible is, […]

  • Practical Purity – Do You Live Like Your Saved? – Part 3

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. (NKJV)Fundamental purity is in essence, God. God is the definition of purity. God is what all things are compared to in order to measure purity.Applied purity occurs the moment we are saved. God imputes (adds; places; applies) the righteousness (purity) of Christ to us supernaturally. From that point on, He quite literally sees us a pure, worthy of salvation, worthy of coming into His presence.Practical purity is the process of what the Bible calls “sanctification”. It is the daily process of the Christian becoming more and more like Christ, who of course is Purity (God). It is […]

  • Eternal Investment… A Sure Thing

    From Brent If you’ve read our blogs for very long, you know our recommendations to “give” are rare. That is on purpose because we realize there is a never ending stream of blogs every day making appeals. When I do put something out there for you, I want you to know 1) it’s worth your time to consider, and 2) I’m fully behind it myself. Giving That Really Makes a Difference and Is Being Used Effectively People long to give in ways that really make a difference for God’s work with humanity, something they can relate to and personally read about. A lot of giving today is for “more [resources, programs, options, facilities, entertainment, activities…]” for American Christians, and that’s okay because the Church has […]

  • A Reader Asks: I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, and mind. The problem is that I can’t seem to feel compassion …

    Question:I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, and mind. The problem is that I can’t seem to feel compassion anymore for what He went through for us. He was tortured beyond believe for us. When I used to think about this tears would flow freely. Now it’s like there are no feelings, only indifference. Can you help? Answer:What you are experiencing is not uncommon. As life digs at us, robs us, and disappoints us, we become desensitized (loss of deep heart feeling).As our hopes are unrealized, tragedies buffet us and people let us down, we become desensitized. As are dreams fade, our health wanes and pain frequents us, we become desensitized.As the years go by, and pretty much all we are concerned with […]

  • According To You – Clean Me Up – Part 2

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Psalm 51:1 Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions. (NKJV) (Previous devotionals can be found at www.seriousfaith.com)It’s hard for us as humans to really understand the depth of how miserable sin really is. Even given the amount of sorrow and destruction we see caused from sin, it is but a speck of the total picture that God alone sees.It is a monumental task for frail Believers to even comprehend the affect of sin on our own life, much less other people’s lives, or all of creation. If God were to give us a glimpse of the true awfulness of […]

  • Just For Believers – Possibility – Part 1

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (NKJV)(Previous devotionals can be found at www.seriousfaith.com)As Christians we often forget who we are (2Pet 1.9). We forget what we are supposed to be; we forget what we are supposed to quit being. We forget what God has done for us, and we forget what we are suppose to do for God.We forget the things which are now true as Believers,while having no trouble remembering how to act like sinners.I think it is profitable at times for us to systematically remember and refresh ourselves about what is true and real as Christians. This helps us to […]
