How to Keep Our New Heart Pure, Loving, and Soft toward the Lord

Before we were saved our heart was hard and cold toward God. We wanted many things, even sinful things, but not God. We felt little affection for Him and had no interest in the things of God. But God wants to have an affectionate relationship with us. So when we were born again, God not only forgave us and cleansed us of our sins, He also did something in our heart. Ezekiel 36:26 says, “I will...

5 Marvelous Benefits of Singing to the Lord in Our Daily Life

In the Bible and throughout the ages, God’s people have praised, worshipped, and expressed their deepest sentiments to God by raising their voices in song to Him. Many of us consider the times we sing together to the Lord on Sundays or in other larger gatherings as times of praise and worship. Singing with others when we come together as the church is a wonderful and important part of our...

The Two Halves of the Gospel in Romans 5:10

When we read through the Bible, Romans 1:15 may not stand out too much to us. In it Paul says, “For my part, I am ready to announce the gospel to you also who are in Rome.” On the surface, this sentence seems quite ordinary and unsurprising; after all, Paul preached the gospel to many people. But in verses 6-7, Paul clearly states who he was writing to: “the called ones of Jesus Christ,” “the...

Prayer is an essential component for believers in Christ. We begin our Christian life by praying to receive the Lord Jesus as our Savior. We also grow in our Christian life by prayer.

But could we be limiting our prayer life by our own concepts about what prayer is and...

In Everything Give Thanks

To give thanks seems like such a simple matter. We teach our children to say, “Thank you,” when something is given to or done for them. Yet at certain times in our lives, giving thanks to the Lord can be hard for us. In this post, we’ll see the secret to giving thanks in all things and how giving thanks is a crucial part of our experience of Christ.

What Is the Flesh in the Bible?

The Bible mentions the flesh throughout the Old and New Testaments. But although Christians are clear about what sin is, many haven’t heard much about their flesh. Unfortunately, Satan’s obscuring of the truth about the flesh over the years has allowed him to damage many of God’s people. What is the flesh, and why is it so bad? Is it still bad now that we’re saved? Does our flesh get better the...
