The Ultimate Blessing

God’s Love And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. —1 John 4: 16 As vast as God’s love is, some refuse to believe that He loves them. Despite all the evidence He has given of His great love, some people deny that love because they say He has failed them. “I have prayed and asked for certain things,” they say, “but God didn’t answer those prayers.” For these people, the proof of God’s love—and in some cases, God’s very existence—would be not just answered prayer, but prayer answered according to their wishes. How foolish…

Why Did He Come?

Why Did He Come? For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. —1 John 3: 8 What are the works of the devil? They are those works that separated the man of the tombs (Mark 5: 2) from his family and from the rest of the society, and so tormented him that he cut himself with stones. The works of the devil are those demons which filled the boy in Mark chapter 9 and made him gnash his teeth, convulse, and foam at the mouth—those spirits that threw him repeatedly…

Sonship

Children of God Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. —1 John 3: 2 Because we are His children, God has a glorious future in store for us. As His Word tells us, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Corinthians 2: 9). Jesus prayed that we would…

The Life that Overcomes

The Life That Overcomes I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one. —1 John 2: 14 Make no mistake about it: if you are a Christian, you are in a battle. The battle is for mastery of your mind, and thus your life. God wants to rule your life so He can bless you and have fellowship with you. Satan wants to rule your life so he can destroy it. Using lies and the promises of immediate fulfillment, he tries to lure…

No Darkness

No Darkness This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. —1 John 1: 5 No one has actually seen the sun. You see the brightness shining from the sun, but you haven’t actually seen the sun itself. In fact, it is because of that brightness that you can’t see the source of the light. In the same way, “No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him”…

The Eternal Perspective changes everything!

How Should We Then Live? Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness…? —2 Peter 3: 11 In light of the fact that the material universe will one day pass away completely, how should I then live? Only a fool would put all of their time, value, and energy into things that are purely material, things destined to burn. Paul wrote, “We don’t look at the things which we can see because those are temporal, but we look at the things which we cannot see because they…

Conformed into His image

Conformed into His Image His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue… —2 Peter 1: 3 God desires that we be as He is. “Be holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1: 16). So it should be the goal and desire of every believer to be conformed into the image of Jesus Christ—to be holy as He is holy, pure as He is pure, perfect (or complete, mature) as He is perfect and complete. In Genesis, we read that God…

He Cares For You

He Cares for You Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. —1 Peter 5: 7 Hannah, as the Old Testament tells us, was tormented by her inability to conceive a child. When she tried to talk to her husband about the issue, it only caused a rift in their marriage. To make matters worse, her husband’s other wife, Peninnah, taunted and teased her until the pressure became so great that Hannah had lost her appetite and couldn’t stop weeping. When she traveled with her husband to Shiloh for one of the feast days, she cast her…

Glory to God

Glory to God …that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. —1 Peter 4: 11 As an expression of His great and generous love, God has given each of us gifts. To some He has given the gift of mercy, to others He has given the gift of exhortation, to others the gift of wisdom or prophecy, teaching or giving. Each of us can be sure that we’ve been given at least one gift—one area in which we are supernaturally adept. **The gifts we have…
