Working for the Lord’s Higher Purpose

Working for the Lord's Higher Purpose

…even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved. 1 Corinthians 10:33 We come into the world wanting attention. “Hey, look at me. Look at what I have or what I can do.” But when we are born again, that focus changes, or it should. Instead of saying, “Look at me,” we should say, “Look at Him.” If your life was an advertisement for Christ and His kingdom, how effective would it be? Some people share their faith by handing out gospel […]

How to Have Better Relationships

How to Have Better Relationships

Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor. 1 Peter 2:17 We can’t control how other people treat us, but we can control how we treat others. In 1 Peter 2:17, we’re given four directives for coexisting with those with whom we must interact. When applied, these mandates can help us experience greater peace and harmony within our relationships. And when our kind disposition toward others is rebuffed, we can know we have honored the Lord by our obedience. Peter tells us very succinctly how we are to behave toward everyone, other believers, God, and government. And […]

The Key to Better Relationships

The Key to Better Relationships

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves… Philippians 2:3 Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get along with everybody? Imagine how much better life would be if you could experience harmonious and peaceful relationships with everyone. Yes, even those cantankerous individuals who get their kicks out of making you miserable. Now that’s a utopia that won’t be enjoyed until we get to heaven. Down here on earth, we must continue to coexist with the good, the bad, and the ugly. When we study the Bible, we think a lot about growing our relationship […]

7 Ways Satan Attacks Believers

7 Ways Satan Attacks Believers

 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4 Paul refers to Satan as “the god of this age.” Because of that, until Jesus returns this world will never improve.  Evil, apostasy, and depravity will increase as the evil one works toward establishing his own rule and worship as depicted in Revelation 13. The devil is “the god of this age”  which means we are living in a world that opposes the godly values that you […]

What You Can Do to Guard Against Satanic Attack

What You Can Do to Guard Against Satanic Attack

8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 1 Peter 5:8-9 All Christians are subject to satanic attack. That’s why we’re told to “be alert.” And just in case you don’t think it’s a big deal or you’re not a target for evil, Peter warns you should take this counsel seriously. Be “of sober mind.” It’s no laughing matter. You could be next. This […]
