Living an Overcoming Life

We can live an overcoming life through the person, presence, power and promises of Jesus. When there is something to overcome in our lives, we need to make sure we are standing (or abiding) totally and absolutely in Him. That is how we will become an overcomer—whether things go the way we hoped or planned, […] Continue reading…

The Who and What of Overcoming

Jesus didn’t leave Heaven and come to this earth and die for us so our life would be easy. Yes, he came to give us eternal life, but He also came so we could live an overcoming life while we are here. What is the overcoming life? John MacArthur wrote, “The word for ‘overcomer’ results […] Continue reading…

Are You Preparing for Jesus Return or Pretending?

Jesus, in the parable of the ten virgins gives us a great picture of people who are preparing for His coming as well as those who are simply pretending.

Are You Preparing for Jesus’ Return?

Anointing that Protects

The anointing that the Apostle John refers to in 1 John 2:20–21 is the presence, the power and the work of the Holy Spirit of the Living God.

Antichrists That Oppose

The apostle John, in 1 John 2, writes to the church about the antichrist. He’s referring to both the Antichrist as well as Antichrists. It’s important that we understand them both so we don’t fall into the same trap as the people to whom John was writing. First, the Antichrist. This is a singular, future […] Continue reading…

Love Sees and Acts on Needs

Love is not only supreme, it sees needs—love provides. We’ve been studying the book of 1 John. It’s a book that doesn’t allow for compromise. John is upset that the church is falling into some dangerous traps and he’s writing a warning letter. He’s seeing an infection of bad doctrine from false teachings and it […] Continue reading…

No Substitute for Love

There is no substitute for love. Jesus made it perfectly clear that loving God and loving people the way God loves people are the most important commandments (Matthew 22:36-40).  Loving God and loving other people fulfills everything the Law and the Prophets told us. All the other religious trappings and religious things people get caught […] Continue reading…

Hatred for Jesus’ Sake

I think a major question American Christians need to start asking ourselves and come to grips with is: What are you going to do when you start being hated for Jesus’ sake? Here’s another question: Are you going to be able to hold your composure and your faith as the hatred increases? Let me be […] Continue reading…

Speaking Truth Through Tears

Jesus Christ understood that love meant many things including the need for us to speak the truth to other people through our broken heart and our tears. Matthew 5:43–44 summarizes what many people believe is the apex of all Christian Truth. Jesus is speaking and he says, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You […] Continue reading…
