Foundations of the Church

Foundations of the Church

“According to the Hartford Institute for Religious Research, 40 percent of Americans say that they attend church regularly but only 20 percent actually do. While the numbers vary a little bit, Canadians are in much the same plight. On any given Sunday, eight out of ten choose to stay home instead of going to a place of worship, which makes you wonder: "Who cares?" "I...

The "Needy" Christian

The Needy Christian

One more interesting fact about babies is that they are needy. From the moment they are born, they can do nothing by themselves. They can’t walk. They can’t talk. They can’t even brush their teeth without help, and it is the same way with Christians. We can do nothing without the help of our Heavenly Father (John 15:5). We can’t save ourselves (Mark...

Christian Direction

Christian Direction

Another interesting fact about babies is that they grow. They cannot stay the same. As each day passes, they become bigger and smarter and stronger with time and it is the same way with Christians. So if you are wondering: am I saved? Ask yourself the question: am I growing? John MacArthur says that Christianity is not about perfection; it is about direction. So what is th...

The Christian Life

The Christian Life

One interesting fact about babies is that they have everything they need from the moment they are born. Hands. Toes. Eyes. Ears. Feet. It is all there and it is the same way with Christians when they are reborn (1 Peter 1:3, 23). We are provided with everything. Faith. Hope. Love. Truth. The Holy Spirit. It is all there and we just need to grow into it (Ephesians 4:14-16)....

The Sufficiency of Christ

The Sufficiency of Christ

A young child was once asked why Jesus is called "the Word." She said it was because Jesus was all God wanted to say to us and she got it exactly right. If you think about it, Jesus was perfect in every way. He was a prophet, priest, and king (Hebrews 7). He was the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). He was the Door (John 10:9), our Shepherd (John 10:11), our Advoca...

Humbly Trusting

Humbly Trusting

Only crucified men can worship a crucified Messiah (Luke 9:23-25). Only humble men can follow the Son of a carpenter (Philippians 2:1-8). Christianity is not for the proud. People often say that they cannot believe because they are not strong enough when, in reality, it is because they are not weak enough. They are still trusting in themselves. Jesus came to call the dead ...

The "Present" from Eternity Past

The Present from Eternity Past

It has been said that Mary wrapped the first Christmas present in the manger but we could go a step further and say that God wrapped it in eternity past. First Peter 1:20 says, ‘For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world’ and Acts 2:23 says, ‘He was handed over by God's set plan and foreknowledge.’ In other words, if you are in Christ, ...

God Is Always with You

God Is Always with You

As Christians, we serve a living God, which means that you can talk to Him any time you want. In the dentist chair. In the office. At school or at home or in traffic. You can talk to God anywhere and everywhere because He is alive. People from other religions can’t do that. They have to go to temples and confess to priests and offer sacrifices before they utter a sin...

The Gospel of God

The Gospel of God

Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us,” which means that Jesus died for bad people. He died for the murderers and the idolaters and the liars. He died for the blasphemous and the covetous and the adulterous. He died for all of those who have sinned and fallen short of the glory of G...

Christian Love & Forgiveness

Christian Love & Forgiveness

Christians are in the forgiveness business because God is in it too. After all, Jesus did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance (Luke 5:32). He came to find lost sheep (Luke 15:1-7), lost coins (Luke 15:8-10), and lost people (Luke 15:11-32). He came to serve the blind and the lame and the deaf (Matthew 11:5). He came to heal the brokenhearted and bind ...
