This powerful poem draws attention to the importance of our Christian testimony and obedience to Christ.
This famous poem was written by Annie Johnson Flint. She was born in 1866 and died in 1932. Saved at a revival meeting in New Jersey, she became an invalid at a young age due to crippling arthritis.
Annie spent her life ministering through writing for the glory of God.
This poem has touched many hearts over the years. May we heed its convicting message.
Every Christian should have a close working relationship with his Bible. These tools will help unlock God’s Word as you study it.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
I heard an aged preacher remark, “Today, preachers talk about reading the Bible. In the old days, we were taught to study it. We need to get back to Bible study.”
How many times have you heard someone say, “I tried to read the Bible, but couldn’t understand it?” Reading the Bible is profitable, but it is meant to be studied.
You have to read your Bible in order to study it. Perhaps we aim to low when we ask people to simply read the Bible. Let’s get back to encouraging people to study the Bible!
Once you decide to study God’s Word, you must choose some tools to help you.
How would you define success? It is vital that you adopt the Biblical definition. Without it, you are wide open to Satanic attack. If you can’t define true success, you can’t achieve it!
Joshua 1:8“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
Everyone wants to be successful. No one is born desiring to be a failure. When asked what they want to be when they grow up, children don’t say, “I want to be unsuccessful!” They usually dream of meaningful careers like a fireman, policeman, doctor, lawyer, businessman, superhero, etc.
Thoughts of success usually include money, influence, fame, or transformation.
What do you imagine when you think of success? An executive in an expensive suit working in corporate America? A large ministry with a national platform? Someone who owns their own business making tons of money? A large, expensive home? A few high-end cars sitting in the driveway? Large numbers of people who adore you?
These are the typical images of success. These earthly ideas of success are imprinted on us from birth.
They are NOT Biblical success. We must reject these carnal ideas of success and search the answer in God’s Word. Why?
Love is a powerful concept. Everyone wants to be loved. I mean truly loved. Don’t settle for a counterfeit. This article will show you the five elements of true love so you can give it to others and experience it for yourself.
Everyone wants to be loved, but love is one of the most misunderstood concepts in the world.
Do you know what real love is? Most people don’t. As a result, they give their hearts to the wrong person or end up hurt deeply as relationships fail.
What does true love look like?
Here are a few things that love is not:
- Love is not selfishness.
- Love is not sex.
- Love is not lust.
- Love is not like.
There are four basic kinds of love found in the Bible. They are identified by these four Greek Words.
“So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
It is my prayer that you have decided that you want to live a life of Biblical Stewardship. If that’s you – Congratulations! You are on your way to a blessed life and eternal rewards.
The desire to be a good steward is only the beginning. Now you must activate stewardship principles in your life. Life is endlessly complex, and everyone’s circumstances are different. It can be overwhelming to know where to start. Perhaps you try to be a good steward, but struggle to follow through. With God’s help, you can do it.
This article will simplify your approach to stewardship by categorizing your life into 5 general areas. You can stay on track and continue pleasing the Lord if you keep these areas in focus.
Time is life. Literally.
Time is more than numbers on a clock. Time is the measurement of life. It is an accounting of your time on earth.
Although our souls are eternal, God made earthly life with an expiration date. We have a beginning and an end here on Earth. Time is not your enemy any more than the speedometer in your car is your enemy. They both function as a measuring device.
Time must be stewarded, or it will be wasted. How many days have we “wasted time?” How often do you get distracted only to find that you “wasted too much time” on a task or event?
