Manasseh... did evil in the sight of the LORD, according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel... And the LORD spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they would not listen. Therefore the LORD brought upon them... the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh with hooks, bound him with bronze fetters, and carried him off to Babylon. (2 Chronicles 33:1-2, 10-11)

 

Manasseh was another king who walked in prideful rebellio...

Faithfulness Brings Blessings

"...A faithful man shall abound with blessings, but he who makes haste to be rich [at any cost] shall not go unpunished..." ~ Proverbs 28: 20 (AMP)


It always pays off in the end to be faithful. God will honour and bless faithful business dealings, faithful stewardship with our money, and faithfulness in helping others out, faithful with our 'gifts', faithfulness to our spouse.


God sees the faithful attitude of our hearts and will bless us as a result of it. We canno...

Righteousness Through Christ in Sanctification

Righteousness through Christ in Sanctification

For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. (Romans 8:3-4)

 

How wonderful it is to be "justified freely by His grace" (Romans 3:24). Yet, what disappoin...

The Law Producing Accountability for Sin

The Law Producing Accountability for Sin

Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God... For by the law is the knowledge of sin. (Romans 3:19-20)

 

God's law speaks to those who are under the law. This would certainly include the Jews, for the law of God was given to them in writing (first engraved on stones by God, then written on parchment in the Holy Scr...

The General Ability of the Law

Then the LORD delivered to me two tablets of stone written with the finger of God, and on them were all the words which the LORD had spoken... You have heard that it was said... But I say to you... . (Deuteronomy 9:10; Matthew 5:27, 28)

 

Although the law of God is unable to justify or sanctify, it does have some strategic ability in God's plan for man. These verses from the Torah and the Sermon on the Mount help us reflect upon this matte...

The Eye is a Lamp

Posted by Terri on January 7, 2015 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (1)

"...The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is sound, your entire body will be full of light. But if your eye is unsound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the very light in you [your conscience] is darkened, how dense is that darkness!..." - Matthew 6: 22-23 (AMP)

 

Often you can tell whether there is 'light' or 'darkness', 'life' or 'death' within someone when you look into their eyes. The eye certainly is a lamp of the body.

A Biblical Example of Spirit-led Praying

For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may have a walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him. (Colossians 1:9-10a)

 

As we have seen, the Lord calls us in various ways to pray without ceasing. Every day in every way, every issue of life is to be engaged through continual,...

Relating Rightly to the God of All Grace

Relating Rightly to the God of All Grace

The God of all grace... to the praise of the glory of His grace... the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ... the Spirit of grace. (1 Peter 5:10; Ephesians 1:6; Hebrews 10:29)

 

Our Lord God is "the God of all grace." God's comprehensive and infinite grace is characteristic of all the Godhead (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). The Father will be honored forever for His grace, so we read: "to the praise of the glory of His grace." The Son...

God Freely Giving, Man Humbly Receiving

He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?... What do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you glory as if you had not received it? (Romans 8:32; 1 Corinthians 4:7)

 

The Lord's plan for rescuing and transforming lives by His grace is established upon the Son of God being given for us as a sacrifice for our sins...

Jesus Given for Us to be Given to Us

Jesus Given for Us to be Given to Us

For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. (Romans 5:10)

 

As the ultimate free gift of God's grace, Jesus was given for us (dying for our sins): "He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all" (Romans 8:32). Moreover, He was given for us to be given to us (that He might express His life in and through us).
