Romans 1:1 - "Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ called to be an apostle, separated unto the Gospel of God."

Matthew 6:13 - And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
There is no temptation or sin in heaven. This prayer does not imply that God wants to tempt us. We know from James 1:13 that it is impossible for God to entice us to sin.
This kind of praying is important because it requires us to face our need for grace. It helps us to align our heart with heaven -- one of…Continue

Matthew 15:32 - And Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said, "I feel compassion for the multitude, because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat."
PEOPLE SAW IN JESUS MEEKNESS, UNLIMITED POWER AND PERFECT LOVE. IF I WOULD WIN SOULS, PEOPLE MUST SEE IN ME THIS SAME JESUS.
IF I WOULD DRAW MEN TO CHRIST IN HEAVEN, THEY MUST BE EYEWITNESSES OF CHRIST IN ME. BUT, IF I HAVE…Continue

I love You, God, because You first loved me. (1 John 4:19)
You sent Your only begotten Son, Jesus, to this earth out of Your love for me and for others. I have believed on Him and now, I will not perish - I have everlasting life. You did not send Jesus to condemn me, but to save me, and I thank You for that! (John 3:16,17)
God, if You loved me that much, I…Continue

Ephesians 6:12 -- "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."
The reality is that we're in battle. We're being prevailed against. Some of us are "losing" in the fight against sin and sickness, disease and death. Some of us are losing the battle for our kids to know Jesus. Some…Continue

1 Peter 2:9 -- "For you have been chosen by God Himself -- you are priests of the King, you are holy and pure, you are God's very own -- all this so that you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light."
We know we are a priesthood, chosen by God, possessed by God, holy like God and royal to God. We have immediate access to Him and we…Continue

1 Samuel 17:46 - This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's, and He will give you into our…Continue

Song of Solomon 8:5 -- Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?
In order to learn new ways to walk we must first learn to lean.
Proverbs 3:6 -- Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.
Leaning on our Beloved often requires us to lean away from our own…Continue

1 Corinthians 1:31 -- As it says in the scriptures, "If anyone is going to boast, let him boast only of what the Lord has done."
If someone were to ask us, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?" we would probably tell him, "Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved."
A rich young ruler asked Jesus the same question but instead of telling the man to believe in Him, Jesus gave him the law…Continue

John 14:16 -- "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever..."
The Holy Spirit, the Helper, is ready to give out gifts and is giving out gifts to those who are asking, knocking and seeking and believing that God will do what He says He will do.

The bride continues,
"Behold, he is standing behind our wall, he is looking through the windows, he is peering through the lattice" (Song of Solomon 2:9).
Yes, Christ dwells within us, but He is standing behind our "walls." The walls between us and the Savior are primarily the work of unrenewed minds and hardened hearts. We have barricaded ourselves behind fears and carnal…Continue

Romans 4:17 -- ....."God who gives life to the dead and calls thos things which do not exist as though they did."
Sometimes we feel feel pain from sickness. How can we go around saying the Christ has redeemed us from this sickness? How can we say that by His stripes we are healed?
God's way is to call those things that are not as though they are. And because we are made in God's image, we can also call those things…Continue

2 Corinthians 3:16-18 -- Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
To repent means to "turn around and go in the opposite direction, change our minds, purposes,…Continue

The term "Mammon" predominantly signifies riches and wealth, but as Colin Brown, in The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, points out, "Material wealth can be personified as a demonic power, Mammon" (New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, vol. 2, ed. Colin Brown (Grand Rapids, MI: Regency Reference Library), 1986, p. 829). When our stewardship of wealth does not align with God's purpose and…Continue

We need to prosper on every front and be like Nehemiah! In his day, Nehemiah saw Jerusalem in ruins and began to rebuild walls, restore gates, hang doors, and ready the place for a new move of worship.…Continue
