A New Creation -- Just Think About It

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come. (2 Cor. 2:17) Just stop for a moment and think: according to Paul, the one who has been baptized INTO Christ has been remade.

A New Christian Persecution

When the Lord said that the world will hate his little flock just as it hated him. He was not just referring to violence against those He called his "own", he was also referring to a whole mindset that would try to smother any sound of the proclamation of His victory over the world.

The Opposite of Faith

People seem to have the idea that the opposite of faith is "doubt." Hence, they think that in doubting, one does something that is against faith. Wrong. The opposite of faith is fear.

Do-It-Yourself Christianity

Luther's reformation gave us a version of Christianity that has as many churches as there are men who would present themselves as interpreter's of what they call "God's Word."

The Bread of Life

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. We saw his glory. And his glory is that of the Son.

The Breath of the Lord

When the Lord gave his breath to his disciples the night he rose again, He was re-creating them. As God breathed on the clay on the day of creation and made it a living nephesh, so the Lord Jesus re-made his disciples, making them the carriers of a new hope for the world. The Breath that the Lord... Sign in to see full entry.
