A true Christian becomes a different person from what he was before the renewing influences of Divine grace,



Jas 1:12 How blessed is the man who endures temptation! When he has passed the test, he will receive the victor's crown of life that God has promised to those who keep on loving him.

Jas 1:13 When someone is tempted, he should not say, "I am being tempted by God," because God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone.

Jas 1:14 Instead, each person is tempted by his own desire, being lured and trapped by it.

Jas 1:15 When that desire becomes pregnant, it…

Christianity teaches men to be joyful under troubles: James 1:1-11

Christianity teaches men to be joyful under troubles: such exercises are sent from God's love; and trials in the way of duty will brighten our graces now, and our crown at last. Let us take care, in times of trial, that patience, and not passion, is set to work in us: whatever is said or done, let patience have the saying and doing of it. When the work of patience is complete, it will furnish all that is necessary for our Christian race and warfare. We should not pray so much for the…

Those who profess faith in Christ as the Lord of glory, James 2:1-13

Those who profess faith in Christ as the Lord of glory, must not respect persons on account of mere outward circumstances and appearances, in a manner not agreeing with their profession of being disciples of the lowly Jesus. St. James does not here encourage rudeness or disorder: civil respect must be paid; but never such as to influence the proceedings of Christians in disposing of the offices of the church of Christ, or in passing the censures of the church, or in any matter of religion.…

He Knows Best

Heb 12:6,7.  For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives."   It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline?

God wants us to follow him because he knows what's best for us. He doesn't give his commands make our lives tough but because he loves us, He knows what can hurt us. When we get off track, God disciplines us Like a loving father, he uses discipline to…

Joyful under troubles

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Eph 6:10-18

Spiritual strength and courage are needed for our spiritual warfare and suffering. Those who would prove themselves to have grace, must aim at all grace; and put on the whole armour of God, which he prepares for us His word. The Christian armour is made to be worn; and there is no putting off our armour till we have done our warfare, and finished our course. 2Ti 4:7  I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith: The combat is not against human enemies, nor…

The following is an attempt to describe what such a Godly friend should be like:

  • Friendship is based on a shared love for the Lord and commitment to his will.
  • Friends enjoy talking about their common interest - the Lord.
  • Friends lead us closer to God; they do not want to do anything that might pull us away from him.
  • friends want the best for each other no matter what it costs (even if it means losing out themselves), they want to see the Lords will in their friends…

Examine the benefits of fasting

(Mat 6:16-18 NKJV)  "Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. {17} "But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, {18} "so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward…

Growing in Godliness

God’s word instructs us in godly conduct, in holiness joined with contentment.  Which is exceedingly, of great means? (1 Tim 6:6)  Now godliness with contentment is great gain. This must issue godly attitudes from the heart if the heart is tuned into God; and given to sound doctrine and not having anything to do with gossip.  To conform to Christ as an act of…

Gods Love

Joh 3:16  "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

This does not mean that God approved the conduct of men, but that he had benevolent feelings toward them, or was “earnestly desirous” of their happiness. God hates wickedness, but he still…

What Spirit Possesses You to Sing

2Co 5:1  For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Your Heavenly Father never intended for you to dwell in the earthly realm, constantly looking at and dwelling on your problems.  You were birthed for the heavenlies. In fact, you are the only creature of…

A sanctified soul is a living soul; and that life is peace.

Believers may be chastened of the Lord, but will not be condemned with the world. By their union with Christ through faith, they are  secured. What is the principle of their walk; the flesh or the Spirit, the old or the new nature, corruption or grace? For which of these do we make provision, by which are we governed? The unrenewed will is unable to keep any commandment fully. And the law, besides outward duties, requires inward obedience. God showed abhorrence of sin by the sufferings of…

Use your words as building blocks

Every word you say will have an affect on others. Positive words will encourage and strengthen other people, but negative words will tear down and harm them. You must decide whether to speak positively or negatively. Please understand that speaking positively requires a deliberate decision, whereas speaking negatively comes easily—for it is human nature. Therefore, actively strive to speak positive and encouraging words to…

Walking with God

“Walking in Humility”

 

(James 3:13-18 NKJV)  Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. {14} if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts do not boast and lie against the truth. {15} this wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. {16} for where…

WHERE IS YOUR FOCUS

In this world where many are driven by ambition and keep striving for betterment, it is easy to become so goal-oriented and so focused on where we’re heading that we don’t give time to the things that are important now.  We can miss smelling the roses along the way.  We can miss the loving hugs of our little ones.  We…

Understanding through Divine inspiration.

Luke will not write of things about which Christians may safely differ from one another, and hesitate within themselves; but the things which are, and ought to be surely believed. The doctrine of Christ is what the wisest and best of men have ventured their souls upon with confidence and satisfaction. And the great events whereon our hopes depend, have been recorded by those who were from the beginning eye-witnesses and ministers of the word, and who were perfected in their understanding of…
