Is a Christian a Sinner? Yes and No

The word “sinner” is most often used in the Bible to describe a person who is given to a life of sin and is unforgiven. For example, Peter contrasts the “righteous” with the “ungodly and the sinner” (I Peter 4.18). A sinner is someone who is lost in sin, not having been washed by the blood of Jesus. The apostle Paul wrote, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5.8). In this sense, a true…

The Word of God

The word of God is powerful, and active (Heb 4.12-13). It’s power is described as a double-edged sword in that passage. A sword is special, and powerful. In the 1st Century, the sword was winning and conquering lands. It was able to be used to take the life of another, even with potential protections in place, like a shield. The aspect in particular view is the fact that it is able to “penetrate.” Like a metal sword could easily penetrate a man’s flesh, so the power of the word of…

Following Directions

How many times have you been given a project or a place to go and stopped to look at the instructions? For some, they read every part of the instruction manual before they even begin the project. Those same people map out their path from point A to point B before even cranking the car. Others, like myself, tend to move through the instructions as the project is taking shape or take advantage of GPS systems to travel alongside the map in real-time. The rest of you outlaws…

Making a Godly Impact

Last year over 26,000 boxes were given to children in Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Zambia, and the Texas/Mexico border. Local ministers use this tool to reach their communities with the good news of Christ. We realize this year is will be different due to the virus, but we would like to fill as many boxes as possible and continue to be a part of this good work. A list of items needed is enclosed in each box. Please go by…

The God of No Partiality

“‘Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation, anyone who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to Him.’” (Acts 10:34-35) These words, spoken by Peter, carry a heavy responsibility for us as Christians. There is no room in the heart of someone who claims Christ for prejudice, racism, or anything of its type. We have all heard sermons or classes taught from this chapter and have nodded our heads when these words are read because we are relieved to know that God is…

Hope to the Hopeless

“And He [Jesus] went with him…” (Mark 5:24a) This morning we are going to be looking at how Jesus gives hope to the hopeless. In the account found in Mark 5, two people come to Jesus in two totally different ways. One, a ruler of the synagogue, came to Jesus boldly, imploring Jesus earnestly to come and heal his little daughter who was at the point of death. The other hid from Jesus and nervously touched the hem of His garment as He passed by. In…

What are you?

A zealot was a politically charged Jew who hated the Roman empire for their cruelty. The empire took what did not belong to them. It neglected real human need. For a zealot, plotting against the government would have been a favorite past time. To plan anything, something, in order to change the circumstances of the people’s lives. They were the voice of the oppressed, so breaking the law was of little consequence compared to the overthrow of the government. Similar ideas persist today. You can see many,…
