The Bible teaches there are only 2 religions, which are grace and debt (Romans 4). Grace is the undeserved goodness of God offered to everyone who believes, it cannot be of works.

Debt teaches you have to do everything to earn salvation. They cannot be Continue reading The 2 religions of the world as illustrated by Invictus versus My Captain

3 requirements for effectual fervent prayer: ask, seek, and knock

The 3 requirements for fervent effectual prayer are ask, seek, and knock. The Christian life is an active life, it motivates, and it works. You need to ask the will of God. You need to actively seek the answer. Then, you have to put the answer into action. All 3 of these are required. Don’t expect a godly answer and good results without all three. If you never ask the will of God, but seek everywhere for an answer, who knows what Continue reading 3 requirements for effectual fervent prayer: ask, seek, and knock

Living by the power of God

By the power of God; literally, in power of God (2 Corinthians 4:7; 1 Corinthians 2:4; 1 Corinthians 4:20). “For the kingdom of God is not [only] in word, but in power.” 1411 dýnamis (from 1410 /dýnamai, “able, having ability“) properly, “ability to perform” (L-N); for the believer, power to achieve by applying the Lord’s inherent abilities. “Power through God’s ability” (1411 /dýnamis) is needed in every scene of life to really grow in sanctification and prepare for heaven (glorification).

Jesus Christ is standing at your door, knocking. Will you answer the knock? Will you shut him out?

“Knocking on the door” is a nearly universal request for entrance. The verb “to knock” is an active action, not a passive position, like waiting around for you to come outside. The verb “to knock” is a respectful request, not a fearful force, like breaking down the door and barging in. This request for entrance into the center of your life is part of the universal call of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Is the LORD really your shepherd?

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. (Psalm 23:1) One cannot have it both ways. Either we belong or we don’t. Jesus Himself warned us that there would come a day when many would say, “Lord, in Your name we did many wonderful things,” but He will retort that He never knew us as His own. It is a most serious and sobering thought which should make us search our own hearts and motives and personal relationship to Continue reading Is the LORD really your shepherd?
