July-Aug. 2014

JULY 16, 2014—THE PRICE OF THE ABUNDANT LIFE—John 10; 10

In 2 Corinthians 4; 16 Paul states a fact that man often realizes too late in his Christian life. “Though outwardly we are wasting away, inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” In our early adulthood we strive to achieve all the things the world has to offer but as we get older the physical things fail (our bodies as well) and we begin to see what is really important. For the Christian this means […]

JULY 15, 2014—FAITH AND UNBELIEF—Matthew 17; 20

The struggle between ‘faith and unbelief’ is evident from cover to cover in the Scriptures. On one hand we see the faith of Moses who believed God would part the Red sea, Abraham who believed God would raise his son from the dead after he sacrificed him on the alter, Elijah who believed God and raised a woman’s son from the dead and the many healing miracles that Jesus did while He was on earth, each time with […]

JULY 11, 2014—REVEALED UNTO CHILDREN—Matthew 11: 25

Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.” The “WISE AND LEARNED” here could be defined as those who have received proper instruction and believe they have the power of mind to understand spiritual truth. The children or shall we say the common man has not generally been conditioned with mans knowledge, realizes his limitations and relies on […]

JULY 10, 2014—BOLD, PERSISTANT AND SPECIFIC—Luke 11: 5-8

I recall a time several years ago when I uttered prayers something like this, “Lord I don’t know if I should be asking this and I don’t know if you will answer but I would like to hear from You on this matter.” What kind of demonstration of lack of faith was that? It radiated uncertainty about receiving an answer, a shallowness of relationship with the Lord (not having any idea about what His will might be) […]

JULY 9, 2014—JESUS WITHDREW ALONE—John 6: 15

In John chapter six Jesus had just performed the miracle of feeding 5000 men with five loaves and two fishes. When the men realized what had happened they desired to make Him king for the obvious benefits he would bring. “When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.” (verse 15) There are two very important principles here. […]

JULY 7, 2014—THE SECRET TO ANSWERED PRAYER—Mark 11: 22-24

Many times man conjures up spiritual questions and makes them extremely complicated when the answers are very simple. Take, for example, the question of our prayers being answered. Scripture is clear! God answers prayer; it is promised throughout His word. The key verse states, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (verse 24) The answer to the secret of answered prayer is contained in […]

JULY 4, 2014—HUMILITY EACH DAY—1 John 4:20

It is so easy to claim to be humble before God. The requirement for such is spoken of from the pulpit every Lord’s day in thousands of churches around the world. And, of course, no one would deny that it is important and necessary for a relationship with Him. However, the attribute of Christian humility is not possible and a full relationship with the Lord is not possible without genuine humility toward others around us which includes […]

JULY 3, 2014—SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE—Isaiah 40:31

The eagle is the most majestic of birds. He is born with potential power in his wings to soar above other birds and somewhat effortlessly at that. Believers are ‘born again’ with that same potential power but all too often we see that they do not soar above the circumstances of life. Perhaps the difference is that the eagle has no choice, he lives by instinct while man was given the ability to reason and make choices. […]

JULY 2, 2014—THE PRAYERS OF MANY—1 Corinthians 1: 10-11

In this passage Paul acknowledges the favor granted by the Lord as a result of the ‘prayers of many’. The fact is that the success of Paul’s ministry depended on the prayers of many other Christians. To the Romans he wrote, “Join me in my struggle by praying to God for me”. If Christians realized that they could more clearly enjoy the presence and power of God by united prayer, if they realized that their prayers […]

JULY 1, 2014—PRAYERLESSNESS IS SIN—1 Samuel 12; 23

How much time do we spend in prayer each day? How much time does the Lord want us to spend in prayer each day? These are questions that anyone that is serious about his walk with the Lord will want to find answers too. Prayerlessness, after all our excuses, is a greater sin than we think. It is an indication of unfaithfulness and violates our commitment to consecrate our lives to His service. It shows […]
