Knowing Christ

"You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. Buy you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life." - John 5:39-40
Bible study will not give you eternal life. You could memorize the entire Bible and be able to discuss minute issues of biblical scholarship and yet fail to experience the truths found in its pages.

The Risen Lord

His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes were like a flame of fire; His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters. - Revelation 1:14-15
At times it is tempting to conclude: "If only I could have walked with Jesus, as the twelve disciples did, it would be so much easier to live the Christian life!" This thought reveals that we do not comprehend the greatness of the risen Christ we serve today.

Praying After the High Points

And when He had sent them away, He departed to the mountain to pray. - Mark 6:46
What do you do after a spiritual victory? Where do you go after reaching a high point in your Christian life? Jesus went to pray.

Fix Your Eyes on God

And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, "Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?" - Numbers 20:10
It is easy to see why Moses became frustrated with the Hebrew people. They were so hard-hearted and weak in their faith that Moses lost his patience and became angry with them. Yet every time Moses shifted his focus away from God, it cost him.

Success Without God

Then he said to Him, "If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here." - Exodus 33:15

It is possible to experience success and yet be void of God's presence. If success is what is important to you, you may be tempted to choose accomplishments over your relationship with God.

Blessed Be the Lord God Almighty

"Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend Your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and I will meditate on Your wonderful works." - Psalm 145:3-5

"How we love You, Father in heaven. How we praise You for all Your mighty works." We sing the words, but how often do we truly think of God's mighty works on our behalf? Do our friends and family know what God has done for us? When was the last time we declared His mighty works?

Built On a Rock

"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock." - Matthew 7:24''

The Christian life is hard work. Christianity involves systematically striving to implement the truth of God's Word into your life. Spiritual depth and maturity do not come without consistent effort.

A Heart That Loves God

"For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings." - Hosea 6:6

No amount of activity for God will ever take the place of a heart that is right with Him. Through the ages, God's people have been persuaded that they could please Him through their service and their offerings, regardless of their heart condition.

Peace and Faith

Raymund and Denielle's Note: This is a re-post from We hope you find as much blessing and encouragement with it as we did.

“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” – Proverbs 4:23
Walking in peace, with your heart calm even when your life is not, is one of the wonderful benefits of the Christian life. God reminds us to pay attention to what is going on within our hearts and to make some intentional choices.

God can Change Everything in a Moment

Posted by Raymund and Denielle Tamayo

In the Bible in John 2, Jesus is at the wedding celebration of some friends when the party runs out of wine.

Instead of wedding joy and bliss, this setback could have ruined the feast and damaged relationships. And as you know, you can’t make new wine fast. It takes time… a long time.
