An Effective Way to Enjoy Christ’s Riches

Can you imagine being incredibly wealthy yet not knowing how to access your wealth?

This may be our case spiritually speaking. In Ephesians 3:8, Paul uses a wonderful phrase: the unsearchable riches of Christ. Jesus Christ is unsearchably rich in who He is and in all His accomplishments, and He wants us to enjoy all He is and has.

How to Receive the Bountiful Supply of the Spirit

What Does It Mean to Be Holy?

Have you ever wondered what it means to be holy? Verses like 1 Peter 1:16 clearly say we believers should be holy: “Because it is written, ‘You shall be holy because I am holy.’” We probably have our own ideas, but what does it really mean to be holy?

By receiving life, we’ll be spiritually nourished, and by that nourishment, we’ll grow in Christ. So being able to receive life from the Bible is...

What Is the Essence of the Bible?

Do you know what the essence of the Bible is? The dictionary defines essence as the indispensable quality of something, the most important ingredient or crucial element of that thing. This is important because what something is determines how it’s handled. Thus, knowing the essence of the Bible determines how we handle the Bible.

God Has a Will and a Purpose

We often think of the will of God in terms of His direction for our personal lives, things like what job we should take, where we should live, and who we should marry. But the Bible shows us that God has a will related to something He wants for Himself.

An Age-Old Question: Who is Jesus?

We’d like to share a new gospel tract about the most wonderful person in the universe: Jesus Christ. He is both the true God and a real man.
