Lust and Pride of this World PDF Print E-mail

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 2:16

 

The Apostle John is clearly instructing his readers to pursue the commandments and will of God over this world. If we have no desire to follow God’s commands then we have no reasonable basis to attest that we love the Lord. However, the actions that characterize the world are much different and totally contrary to the things of the kingdom and the Father. We must forsake those enticing sins of lust and pride of this world and fully submit to the will and word of God.

“And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.” – 2 Thess. 3:5

 

God providentially leads, guides, and directs his children every single day. However, God is not abstract or flippant in the direction that he will guide our hearts. Here we are taught that God will direct our hearts unto two conditions that are vital for the child of God: into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

How do I study a book of the Bible? PDF Print E-mail

This question comes up quite often as a pastor. There are really countless ways a person could approach a Bible study. We can read for various reasons. We can read for quantity or quality. Quantity would be for volume, or amount read everyday. A one year Bible reading plan would service this need well. The following principles would be more geared toward quality instead of sheer quantity. Neither are bad, though.

Are we chosen of God for financial wealth and prosperity? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Josh Winslett   
Wednesday, 26 June 2019 12:18

First world countries, such as America, are truly blessed with an abundance of wealth. This unfortunately conditions our society to allow problematic ideas to be perpetuated under the name of the gospel. First, God never promised financial wealth as part of the Christian experience. On the contrary, Jesus did tell his disciples that they would be hated, experience tribulation, and endure persecution (John 15:18-23, 16:33).
