Spiritual Gifts For The Common Good

What are spiritual gifts? To whom are they given, and for what purpose? The Apostle Paul told the Corinthians: “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good” (1 Cor 12:7). The great fact which Pentecost commemorates is too often regarded as if it were a transient gift, limited … Continue reading

Christ: The Living Foundation Stone

The Apostle Peter told the early Christians: “4 As you come to Him, the living stone, rejected by men, but chosen and precious in God’s sight, 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ” (1 Peter … Continue reading

Enduring Faith

Have you ever wondered why Christianity is still thriving today amidst so much persecution? Crowns and thrones have perished, kingdoms have risen and waned, but why is the Church of Christ ever-present? How can the activity or endeavour of men be so enduring? Let us find the answers in the Acts of the Apostles: “34 … Continue reading

The Influence of Association

Ever heard the expression, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”? What about, “If you can’t beat them, join them”? Can these sayings be applied to our faith? Since the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light, shouldn’t we just join … Continue reading

Waiting In Joyful Hope for the Angelic Afterlife

Do we take matters regarding the afterlife seriously? What does the Bible say about the hereafter? Can we choose the kind of life we want to live for all eternity? Mainstream Christianity professes belief in the Nicene Creed, and English versions of the Nicene Creed in current use include the phrase: “We look for the resurrection … Continue reading

Spiritual Nourishment for All Stages of Growth

In most large houses we shall find humanity in all its stages. We shall see the infant in its cradle, children laughing in their play, young men working with vigour, and the old man resting in peace. In such a mansion, if a careful Martha be in charge, provision will be made for all the … Continue reading

Keeping the Unity of the Spirit

What is the unity of the Spirit? How do we keep it? Does it mean that we have to strive for uniformity in order to keep the unity of the Spirit? The Apostle Paul told the Ephesians: “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep … Continue reading

Christ The True Vine

Christmas is just round the corner. All major shopping malls are decorated with Christmas trees, mistletoes, reindeers and Santa Claus; the sound systems are filled with Christmas carols, but something seems amiss. Ha! The secular world has successfully removed Christ from Christmas. “Christ” has been replaced with “X” on most secular or commercial decorations, and … Continue reading

The King Who Stood By The Truth

Will there be Christianity if Christ and the Apostles did not stand by the Truth of God? Who will defend the Truth if everyone is too ashamed or scandalized to stand by it? How can we hear the Shepherd’s voice if we are not of the Truth (cf. John 10:27; 18:27)? We are told by … Continue reading

The God Who Assures His People And Gives Them Eternal Life

We are in this world as a ship at sea, tossed up and down, and in danger of being cast away. We need an anchor to keep us sure and steady. Gospel hope is our anchor in the storms of this world. It is sure and steadfast, or it could not keep us so (cf. … Continue reading
