perfect? Gosh no, am I perfect? far from. I am a sinner battling with my old fleshly ways, always. That’s OK because I have God, I trust God with my life and everything and everyone in it. I know he is guiding me and working in me. He loves me and forgives me for my sin. He is the one who NEVER

The World Through Him Might Be Saved

Knowledge is not salvation. Nor is good works. You should know the Bible, but even more important, you should understand the God whom the Bible reveals and the salvation that God offers. 

When the Israelites were wandering in the wilderness, God sent a plague of serpents to punish the people for their rebellious attitudes. Those doomed to die from snakebite could be healed by obeying God’s command to look up at the elevated bronze serpent and by believing that God would heal them if they did (Numbers 21: 8-9) Similarly, our salvation happens when we look up to Jesus, believing he will save us. God has provided this way for us to be healed of sin’s deadly bite….

Keep Your Faith Firm

John 2:23-25

23Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feastday, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did. 

24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, 

25 and needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man. 

Jesus, the Son of God, knows all about human nature. He was well aware of the truth of Jeremiah 17:9, which states, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jesus was discerning and he knew that the faith of some would-be followers was superficial. Some of the same people claiming to believe when it is exciting and everyone else believes the same way. But keep your faith firm even when it isn’t popular to follow Christ. – Study Bible KJV

What the world applauded, we don’t. What the world approves of, we don’t. We get offended by the things we see on the television, we get offended by the things we read online and in the paper. No one cares…
