Pearls of Wisdom

Read about what God is saying to His people in these last days. Let Him stir your heart and challenge you to live according to His will.

God Is Sovereign

We are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ (1 John 5:20) Oh, how I wish that I could adequately set forth the glory of the One who is worthy to be the object of our worship!  I do believe that if our new converts—the babes in Christ—could be made to…

More Than Religion

Walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. 1 Thessalonians 2:12 Contrary to much that is being said and practiced in churches, true worship is not something that we “do” in the hope of appearing to be religious! True worship must be a constant and consistent attitude or state of…

Questions We Ask

A living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.Romans 12:1 I am convinced that anyone who brings up the question of consequences in the Christian life is only a mediocre and common Christian!

Glorious Contradictions

The life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me. Galatians 2:20 God has revealed so many glorious contradictions in the lives and conduct of genuine Christian believers that it is small wonder that we are such an amazement to this world. The…

Mediocre Christianity

I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal. 1 Corinthians 3:1 Read your New Testament again and you will agree that mediocrity in the Christian life is not the highest that Jesus offers. Certainly God is not honored by our arrested spiritual development—our permanent halfway spiritual condition. We all…
