“Gospel”

God’s providence in the life of this sinner.

On March 20, 2011, I began to teach a Sunday school series on the topic of prayer. As the result of the preparation I undertook, I became quite convicted of my own lack of prayer, speaking of both quantity and quality. Since that time, my prayer life has been changed greatly, by the grace of […]

3 John 1:4

3 John 4 – I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. What is truth? (John 18:38) If we are looking for a scriptural basis for the answer to this question (and, by the way, we are), then my mind immediately takes me to John 17:17: ‘Sanctify them in […]

1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Pray without ceasing.

Dear brother or sister, do you pray without ceasing? I confess, sometimes, even when I pray, I find my mind wandering and I forget I was in the middle of a prayer. If we can’t focus on our prayer life when we are actually praying, how can we begin to pray without ceasing? Do you want a better prayer life? Do you want to pray more? How about more effectively? Is it your desire that God would hear and answer your prayers? The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, does it not?

1 Thessalonians 5:16 – Rejoice Evermore

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 16 Rejoice evermore, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Oh what joy it is to live in Christ! Right? Isn’t every moment simply an easy moment of bliss? Doesn’t Jesus heal all your sickness and provide […]
