Sufficient Grace

Sufficient Grace

This week, I heard someone say that God does not give us more than we can bear; He gives us way more than we can bear. Otherwise, we wouldn't need God. The Bible says the same thing. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 says: "'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ ...

Matthew 28;18-20

Dawson Trotman was the founder of the Navigators and a well-known Evangelist in the mid-1900's who died while saving a young girl from drowning. He actually held her up while he himself perished under the waves. At his funeral, one of the keynote speakers said: "Dawson died the same way he lived holding others up." Discipleship is a lot like that; it is the act of holding...

Matthew 28;19-20

"What is the church supposed to be doing? Drop into any local church and you could find several different answers to that question. Some churches want to focus on their music. They want to have the best choir and the best concerts and the best ensembles in town. Others want to focus on their programs. They want to have the most relevant kid's program and the most rockin' y...

"As White as Snow"

As White as Snow

Snow is one of the prettiest things that God ever created and it reminds us of salvation. Isaiah 1:18 says: "'Come now, and let us reason together,' says the Lord 'Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool.'" Through the shed blood of Christ, though you were once scarlet in God's sight, now you ...

1 Corinthians 12;12–13

A large denomination once posted a list of typos in their church bulletins that included statements such as: "Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don't forget your husbands." And "Barbara is having trouble sleeping in the hospital. She requests tapes of Pastor Jack's sermons to help her." While...

Foundations of the Church

"According to the Hartford Institute for Religious Research, 40 percent of Americans say that they attend church regularly but only 20 percent actually do. While the numbers vary a little bit, Canadians are in much the same plight. On any given Sunday, eight out of ten choose to stay home instead of going to a place of worship, which makes you wonder: "Who cares?" "Is the ...

The "Needy" Christian

The Needy Christian

One more interesting fact about babies is that they are needy. From the moment they are born, they can do nothing by themselves. They can't walk. They can't talk. They can't even brush their teeth without help, and it is the same way with Christians. We can do nothing without the help of our Heavenly Father (John 15:5). We can't save ourselves (Mark 10:27). We can't sancti...

Christian Direction

Christian Direction

Another interesting fact about babies is that they grow. They cannot stay the same. As each day passes, they become bigger and smarter and stronger with time and it is the same way with Christians. So if you are wondering: am I saved? Ask yourself the question: am I growing? John MacArthur says that Christianity is not about perfection; it is about direction. So what is th...

The Christian Life

The Christian Life

One interesting fact about babies is that they have everything they need from the moment they are born. Hands. Toes. Eyes. Ears. Feet. It is all there and it is the same way with Christians when they are reborn (1 Peter 1:3, 23). We are provided with everything. Faith. Hope. Love. Truth. The Holy Spirit. It is all there and we just need to grow into it (Ephesians 4:14-16)....

The Sufficiency of Christ

The Sufficiency of Christ

A young child was once asked why Jesus is called "the Word." She said it was because Jesus was all God wanted to say to us and she got it exactly right. If you think about it, Jesus was perfect in every way. He was a prophet, priest, and king (Hebrews 7). He was the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). He was the Door (John 10:9), our Shepherd (John 10:11), our Advoca...
