The People Of The World

The world has a prince, a philosophy, a purpose, and a people. And Christians are to love these people, but we must understand that these people will not love us. Jesus said, “The children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light” (Luke 16:8). What the Lord said was that we need to wake up and smell the coffee. The devil is doing a better job at destroying the world than the children of God at redeeming the world, because the... Read More

Man's Capacity For Depravity

Men have a capacity for sin that animals don’t have. Animals cannot sin because animals do not have a choice. And the reason they do not have a choice is they do not have a moral basis. But men do. The sad thing is that man was created a little lower than the angels and now he has become a little lower morally than the animals. Even animals do not have sexual perversion like we have among men. I heard about some monkeys who had a little baby monkey. The ... Read More

Domination Over Animals

Man is meant to rule. In Psalm 8:5-8, God says, For Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. When Jesus Christ was here on earth, He demonstrated t... Read More

Pro-Choice Is No Choice

I'm telling you, pro choice is no choice. Somebody says, "Well, now wait a minute. A woman's body is her own body." But we're not talking about her body; we're talking about the body of a little baby. Freedom of choice is not the freedom of choice to kill someone else. "Well," you say, "the baby lives inside the mother." Suppose I have an unwanted guest in my home? Do I have the right to kill an unwanted guest in my home? Put it down big, put it down pla...

Faithful In The Little Things

“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much” (Luke 16:10). Big things are made from smaller things, just like your body is made from cells. And those cells are made from molecules. And those molecules are made from atoms. Everything that is big is made from something small. Think of all of the ages of time. Time is made from millenniums, millenniums are made from centurie... Read More

Faithful To Our Friendships

How important it is to have friends! Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Someone paraphrased First Corinthians 13 in this way: “Friendship is slow to lose patience. It looks for a way of being constructive. It is not possessive. It is neither anxious to impress others, nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own importance. Friendship has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage at the oth... Read More

Faithful To The Family

Over and over and over again, the Bible speaks of family faithfulness. Friend, if you are not faithful at home, you can’t be faithful anywhere else. Simply put: The religion that doesn’t begin at home, doesn’t begin at all. “Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?” (Proverbs 20:6). Husbands need to be faithful to their wives. They need to be morally faithful and sexually faithful. There is no greater mark of unf... Read More

Kindness In The Home

Do you know where we need to be kind the most? In our homes. Why is it that sometimes we are the most unkind to those we love the best? The most cutting remarks sometimes occur in the home. Indeed, there are many marriages that could be saved by a little gentleness. Emerson said, “Courtesy is made up of little sacrifices.” If you are a husband, let me give an application for today. Men are to be the leader of the home. And one of the marks of leadership i... Read More

Too Busy To Be Kind

The chief enemy to kindness is busyness. We have our priorities, our jobs, our duties, our responsibilities…we’re too busy. But if we are too busy to be kind, we are too busy. The Bible says: “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10). Do you remember the story of the Good Samaritan? In Luke chapter 10, our Lord tells the story of a man on a journey who st... Read More

Longsuffering - A Fruit Of The Spirit

The Bible says the fruit of the spirit is “longsuffering.” I’ll tell you one thing about fruit—you will never see a fruit factory. Isn’t that right? You’ll see a shirt factory, but you see a fruit orchard. You see, there is no fruit without life. You cannot manufacture patience. The fruit of the Spirit is patience. And the same Bible that says in Galatians 5:22 “The fruit of the Spirit is…patience,” says a few verses later, “if we liv... Read More
