Why is Good Friday Good?

March 29, 2024

    More than two thousand years ago, Mankind nailed his Maker on a cross of wood. On that horrific day, the devil laughed, the people sneered and the Father turned His back on his Son. Jesus Christ did not die and rise again for a percentage of the world, but for the whole world. While Jesus was dying on the cross, there were many miracles that happened to demonstrate Why Good Friday is Good. Easter is God’s grace for the human race. As we approach Good Friday, consider Why Good Friday is Good. According to Matthew 27:45-54, when Jesus died on the cross: He touched the sun. In Him,…

The Stolen Song Of Joy

March 5, 2024

There is a joy and peace that passes all understanding; but in order to walk in this joy and peace, we must embrace Christ daily and live in the power of the Holy Spirit. God had given a land, a law, and a Lord to His ancient people Israel. They defiled the land, defied the law, and denied the Lord. As a result, the Babylonians came and carried them away to a strange land—a land of captivity. These people who were meant to sing lost their song. By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion. Upon the willows in the midst of it…

Learn The Differences Between Joy & Happiness

February 29, 2024

Happiness depends on what transpires, but joy enriches the soul and comes only from the Lord. Truly, the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10). As we begin our joy journey together, it important that we come to cognitive clarity as to what the differences are between happiness and joy. Much labor has gone into this book—not to help us to be happier but hopefully to help us to be full of joy. Learning the differences between happiness and joy can help us live a more meaningful life filled with greater purpose. The Lord does want us to be happy and healthy, but holiness is the Lord’s higher aim for our lives….

The Avalanche of Apostasy: The Acts Of Aposates

January 30, 2024

“These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever” (Jude 1:12–13).  What a poignant statement! What powerful verses these are! The Apostle Jude is providing us with a portrait of an apostate. There are spiritual criminals in the Body of Christ and local churches. An apostate is not merely someone who does not believe in the gospel—he is lost, but…

From The Outside In, To The Inside Out: Colossians Series # 18

January 16, 2024

  In Colossians 2:20, we read, “Wherefore, if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances (Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using) after the commandments and teachings of men? Which things have indeed a show of wisdom in will-worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body, not in any honor to the satisfying of the flesh.” Many years ago, there was a man named Jim Jones who persuaded several hundred people to follow him in suicide in Guyana. How is it that several hundred people will follow…

Double Security In An Insecure World: Colossians Series #17

January 8, 2024

Life is what you are alive to. Mention cars and many teenage boys come alive. Mention boyfriends and all the teenage girls come alive. Mention money and the stock market and a lot of people come alive. Life indeed is what you are alive to. That is certainly true in the Christian life. When you come to the Lord Jesus Christ, your life takes on a new perspective and it gains a new center. Paul put it this way in Philippians 1:21, “For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Life, for the believer, is Jesus Christ. You come alive in the Lord Jesus Christ and life…

The Making Of A Miracle: Colossians Series #16

January 1, 2024

Colossians is the blueprint that tells us how we can put our lives together. It also gives us God’s plan for getting this good news to lost people. It is tragic, but true, that most people live their entire life and never really know what life is all about. They live 70 or so years, eat tons of food, wear large numbers of clothing, drive all kinds of cars, and travel to a multitude of places. They live and they die and never really know how what their life could have been and what they truly missed over the years. There was a man who lived all of his life…

Living In The Shadows: Colossians Series #15

December 27, 2023

As we begin this chapter, please carefully read the words: “Let no man therefore judge you (condemn you or look down on you) in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17). We are not called to live life in the shadows. A shadow is a dim outline of some object or some reality. Really, a shadow is a promise and a preview. A shadow is a promise that something or someone is coming. It is also a preview because the…

The Conquering Christ of Christmas

December 23, 2023

Will Christ be the center of your celebration this Christmas season? Are you living for the things that Christ died for? The Christian needs to remember that our joy is because of Jesus, our songs because of our Savior, our love because of our Lord, our inheritance is because of His incarnation, and our blessings a result of His birth. The central figure throughout the Scriptures is the conquering Christ. In the Old Testament era, through the Passover, the people looked forward to redemption. In the New Testament era, during the Christmas season, we look backward to the Incarnation. In the Book of Isaiah, the centrality of the conquering Christ is vividly seen for us. It…

The Christ Of Christmas Past, Present & Future: Colossians Series #14

December 13, 2023

The Apostle Paul was a masterful writer, under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. In his writings, he describes how we have now entered into a transition from the Sufficiency of Christ to the deficiency of cults. In Colossians 2:3, we read, “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Then, in verse 4, we read, “And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.” He is moving from Sufficiency to deficiency. The best way for us to be prepared and not deceived by that which is false is to be very well grounded in that which is true. The same Jesus Christ…
