Jesus the Lamb of God

The Lamb of God is a precious name referring to the Lord Jesus. Perhaps you’ve heard it before, or remember reading it in the Word. Many of us may have sung it in Christian songs and hymns to praise the Lord as the Lamb of God. To increase our appreciation of our Lord Jesus as the Lamb of God, let’s dive into the meaning and importance of this profound name of Christ in the Bible.

Worshipping God in Spirit and Truthfulness

John 4:24—“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness.” Note 4 on spirit: “This is our human spirit. According to typology, God should be worshipped (1) in the place chosen by God for His habitation (Deut. 12:5, 11, 13-14, 18), and (2) with the offerings (Lev. 1—6). The place chosen by God for His habitation typifies the human spirit, where God’s habitation...

8 Verses Showing Jesus Christ Lives in You [Infographic]

In 2 Corinthians 13:5 the apostle Paul asks the Corinthian believers a question: “Or do you not realize about yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you?” In saying, “Jesus Christ is in you,” Paul wasn’t speaking metaphorically.

Where Does God Live Today?

Our God is exceedingly great. You only have to look up at the stars at night to see how wondrous He is as the Creator. When we view the physical universe, we’re awed by His greatness and beauty.

We know God is real, but as we go about our daily activities and even when we pray, it can seem...

What Does God Want from Us in Our Christian Life?

We Christians naturally want to please God and make Him happy. But what exactly makes God happy? To please God, we first need to know what He wants. Otherwise, we can spend a lot of time doing things we think He wants, but end up not pleasing Him. Let’s take a look at what we think God wants, and what God actually wants for our Christian life.

The Living Christ Being the Center of God’s Economy

“We must learn to grasp one thing and to be grasped by one thing—Christ Himself. We must learn how to grasp Christ in the Holy Spirit and be grasped by the Holy Spirit. Although we can certainly receive help from doctrine, the main center of God’s economy is not doctrine, but the living One in the Holy Spirit.”

The Third Part

Have you ever felt unsatisfied, let down, even inexplicably empty after you got what you thought would make you happy? You’re not alone. This perplexing feeling has been known to strike the most accomplished and wealthy people, as well as the less accomplished and less wealthy. In fact, King Solomon had it all—a kingdom, untold wealth, and profound wisdom—yet after pondering his life, he said...
