A Salute to Our Country’s Service Members

As Memorial Day approaches, we at BfA would like to take this time to honor our country’s military service members with this salute. Why we remember In the bleakest hours of the American Revolution, facing a brutal winter and the waning enthusiasm of his army, General George Washington read to his men the patriotic words written by Thomas Paine in the tract, The American Crisis: “These are the...

The Purpose of the Lord’s Salvation

“The purpose of the Lord’s salvation is not only that we should not be in sin and in the flesh, but also that we should not be in the soul, but in the spirit. His salvation would save us not only to the degree of morality that we become a moral man, but even more to the degree of spirituality so that we become a spiritual man.”

Jesus Satisfies Our Spiritual Hunger

Matthew 14:15-16—“Now when evening fell, the disciples came to Him, saying, This place is deserted and the hour is already late. Send the crowds away that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves. But Jesus said to them, They do not need to go away.

How to Pray by Talking to God

Many people find it hard to know how to pray to God. They want to pray, or they feel because they’re believers, they should pray, but they don’t know how to go about it. They ask things like, “How do I pray to God correctly?” or, “What do I say when I pray?” or, “How can I pray if I don’t know any prayers?” So how are we supposed to pray?

The Perfectness of the Lord’s Power

2 Corinthians 12:9—“And He has said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness. Most gladly therefore I will rather boast in my weaknesses that the power of Christ might tabernacle over me.” Note 2 on power says: “For the sufficiency of the Lord’s grace to be magnified, our sufferings are required; for the perfectness of the Lord’s power to be shown forth, our...

The Comfort of the Indwelling Spirit of Jesus

“Real comfort comes from the indwelling Spirit of Jesus. When we fellowship with Jesus in this Spirit and when we live in this wonderful Spirit, we automatically have inward comfort. Regardless of the outward environment, there is inward rest and comfort.”
