1160. How are You Temped?

How are You Tempted?

IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING

Once we’re born again, the temptations we face should be of a different nature than those we used to face. The degree to which we have surrendered to Christ will be reflected in the change (or lack thereof) in the things that tempt us. Continue reading


1158. Running Out of Time

IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING     

Running Out of Time

Menachem Begin

In 1981, Israel, under the leadership of Menachem Begin, was faced with the prospect of a nuclear Iraq. The threat was obvious and imminent. Saddam Hussein had made his intention known to the world. None of Iraq’s neighbors would have been safe, especially Israel. Israel did what needed to be done. In one precise strike on Iraq’s nuclear reactor at Osiraq, Iraq’s nuclear program was eliminated once and for all. Continue reading

1156. God Justifies the Ungodly

 

IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING

Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly,
his faith is credited as righteousness. (Romans 4:4-5)

Despite what this passage clearly says, people naturally believe that the way to be saved is to be good, and the way to become righteous is through our behavior. We assume that Christ came to help us become righteous enough for God to accept us and welcome us into His presence. The truth, however, is that no one ever received righteousness by work or worth. As strange and impossible as it seems, righteousness has nothing to do with “doing right.” Continue reading

While we tend to focus on punishing law-breakers, what about a long-term solution -restoration?  Continue reading


1154. I Was Thinking

Some questions to ponder if you’ve run out of things to think about.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE

 

I was thinking;

If only 11 million people have Obama-Care, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will an additional 13 million people be randomly shot, poisoned or spayed? Continue reading


1152. The Authority of Revelation

Knowing how you determine what is true is the first step in winning an argument.

IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING

It’s a sad fact that critical thinking has become scarce in today’s culture. People tout their opinion or belief as though it’s true just because they believe it. This is especially true when discussing God. Mention God’s judgment and they will say something like, “God isn’t like that. He’s a loving God and wouldn’t punish Continue reading


1150. Another Reason Why Jerusalem is Important

The importance of Jerusalem is tied to one of God’s compound names.

IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING

Since Islam’s holiest site is in Mecca, why does all the action today seem to take place in Jerusalem, a city not even mentioned in the Qur’an? Why is Jerusalem, and more specifically, the Temple Mount, so important that it has become a powder keg ready to explode? Why do Muslims even care? Continue reading


1148. Why are you Ministering?

Are you doing what you’re doing because you feel like you should?

It’s Worth Considering

I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing (John 15:5)

Many of us are very familiar with today’s verse. We get the fact that we really need Jesus and we acknowledge that we can do nothing of eternal Continue reading
