Fools Rush In Where Wise Men Fear to Tread

Posted 05-31-2019 at 08:33 AM by snowduck

1 Corinthians 1:18 - For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing... - All over the world there are Christians and all over the world there have always been people who regard the gospel as foolish, but the scriptures say we are foolish if we don't believe in God Psalm 14:1 - The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”... - They think this way because Earthly "wisdom" supports them, but the Bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:7 - For we live by faith, not...

Problems

Posted 04-30-2019 at 09:29 AM by snowduck

Acts 14:22 - ...“We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,”... - A lot of people seem to think that it will be smooth sailing after they become Christians, but that's not what the scriptures say. Some might even give up and say "why bother"? This is understandable, and I often feel the same way. But then I go back to remembering the Apostle Paul who wrote much of the new testament. After he became a Christian he traveled widely promoting Christianity and had...

Real Power

Posted 03-28-2019 at 10:19 AM by snowduck

1 Corinthians 4:20 - For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. - We all like to have power and usually the more the better, but what kind of power we want and our motivations are what interests God. It doesn't always seem like it, and sometimes they even suffer for their faith, but those who know Jesus Christ have real power. As God says in 2 Corinthians 12:9 - ...my power is made perfect in weakness... This may not sound right to us, and not how we would do it but is the way...

Illustrations

Posted 02-28-2019 at 10:07 AM by snowduck

Isaiah 1:18 - ...“Though your sins are like scarlet,they shall be as white as snow;... - A fresh blanket of snow is the whitest thing I can think of, it has long been a symbol of purity and cleanliness. And in old testament times scarlet was popular because it was one of the firmest of dyes not easily washed out. God uses these two illustrations to tell us about our sin and what he will do about it. This scripture is clearly a prophecy about the coming savior Jesus Christ revealed to Isaiah about...

Do It Yourself?

Posted 01-25-2019 at 07:31 AM by snowduck

Galatians 2:21 - I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing! - At the time this scripture was written Jewish religious leaders were (and still are) telling their followers that they had to obey the old testament law in order to be saved. The old testament law is a set of "rules" on how to live given to the Jews by God in the old testament. Most everyone knows the Jewish religious leaders have always rejected Christ...
