A Prayer for Sanctification

Jesus prays to the Father that He may sanctify us. But what does sanctification mean exactly? Who is responsible for this process? What aspect of our lives does it include? May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. “ 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 Sanctify them by the…

That Jesus was at the center of Heaven and he returned there to intercede for us.

A Life on Mission

The scriptures tell us we must not be only the hearer of the word, but the doer of the word. The hearing and doing are related. Unbelievers cannot believe because they have not heard the gospel. Therefore, Paul tells us we must live a life of mission. But what does it take for us to live a life of mission? Join us as we discover the four key things we must consider to do so effectively. It has always been…

The Gospel and Your Mission

The gospel was spread through a tiny group of Jews and the Bible painted the beautiful final picture of every nation, tribe and tongue worshipping the Lord God in heaven. We have an amazing promise – The gospel of salvation to everyone who believes. We have an awful problem – Some people have not heard of it. What must we do to be a part of God’s great plan of salvation? For it is with your heart that you believe…

Depression and the Gospel

Depression is a subject less mentioned, but how do we handle it as Christians? Does the Bible have any answers to those in need? Today we learn from Psalm 77 hope for those facing this crisis. I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me. When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and I would not be comforted. I remembered you, God, and I groaned;…

The Great White Throne of Judgement

What is the Great White Throne of Judgement? Who will appear before it? What is the purpose of this judgement? Today we learn about this doctrine to remind us of the reality of eternal damnation and the importance of sharing Christ to those who have not heard the Gospel. Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And…

The Gospel of Joy

What is the source of Joy? Is Joy a treatment or is it a condition? Today we learn what the Bible teaches about Christ’s Joy that is unique and contrary to what the world teaches. What must christians do to keep our Joy. What is the enemy that will rob you of Joy. And from where do we seek our Joy. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be…

Could Christ Return Anytime?

When is Christ coming back? How are we to prepare for his second coming? Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. “ 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (NIV)

The Marriage of the Lamb

What is the marriage of the Lamb? Who has the privilege of being there? Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s…

What Happens When Jesus Returns

What happens after Jesus return? Are you prepared for his second coming? For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the…

What Happens After Death

What happens to believers after they die? What motivates you each morning as you get up? Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we…

Jesus Wins

There are many opinions over end times prophecies. So much so that we either hyper focus on current events in order to fit them into “biblical timeline”, or we discard any concern about the end times altogether. How should we navigate this challenging topic? The ultimate truth in any teaching about the end times is that Jesus wins. Come learn how we ought to anchor our hope in this essential truth. Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to…

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (NIV)
Three crosses in the morning

Suffering and Glory

We learn from the encouragement of Paul to the Romans of God’s goodness which endures and abounds greater than all of our present suffering. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.  Romans 8:18

Missions and the Local Church

As we learn about the new support structure for missionaries with the Alliance, we are encouraged by a biblical model of compassionate, mutual self-giving from missionary to local church. I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, Philippians 1:3-5
