Grace Reigns through Righteousness to Bring Eternal Life through Christ

When the Apostle Paul said: “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8), was he implying that we were not to be always sinners? Did Christ die to save us in our sins or from our sins? It is a good practice for authors to sum up their ideas at the end … Continue reading

Demystifying The Golden Text

The Gospel of John, chapter 3, verse 16, is one of the most widely quoted verses from the Christian Bible, and has been called the most famous Bible verse. It is frequently called the “golden text” of Scripture, and is often found in evangelistic leaflets. However, this great passage has been interpreted in so many … Continue reading

The Joy Of Abiding In Christ’s Love

What is “fullness of joy”? In what sense is our joy full? What does fullness mean? How can we experience “fullness of joy”? In the concluding verses of the great parable of the Vine and the branches Jesus said: “9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. … Continue reading

Encouragement to Be Faithful

We encourage our children to study hard to get into a good school. We encourage our family and friends to exercise and eat a balanced diet to stay healthy. We encourage our colleagues and teammates to work closely together to get things done. But how often do we encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ … Continue reading

Christian Perfection

I find Matthew 5:38-48 the most difficult part of the Sermon on the Mount to understand and obey. How can we not resist an evil person? How can we love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us? Is Jesus asking for the impossible? How can we ever be perfect? The old law directed … Continue reading

Divine Instructions for Service

What can we learn from Christ’s instructions to the twelve apostles (cf. Matt. 10:5-15)? What did Christ appoint them to do? What kinds of services they were told to perform? To whom they must apply themselves? How they ought to behave themselves? In Matthew 10:5-15 we have the instructions that Christ gave to his disciples, … Continue reading

Salvation Requires True Faith in Christ

Many words of caution can be found in the Bible warning the believer to be vigilant and be prepared at all times (cf. Matt 24:37-44; 25:1-13; Rom 13:11-14). If our salvation is eternally secure (i.e. we can’t lose it), why are we warned against being sloppy and unprepared? Should we take such warnings seriously? Why … Continue reading

God’s Mercies Are New Every Morning

God’s love for us is unconditional and never ceasing, how can we help others experience God’s love? God’s mercies for us are endless, how do they help us carry the crosses in our lives? God is faithful to all His promises; are we faithful to God; do we carry out His will for us? Let … Continue reading

Blessed Assurance for Those Who Trust In God

Where can we find comfort in a troubled and uncertain world? Who will be there for us unconditionally? What remarkable effects should unconditional love produce? In his Epistle to the Hebrews, the Apostle Paul says: “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I … 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
