bible study (408)

In our society, there is often a lot of confusion about what it means to be a man. Some people think that it's all about being tough and macho, while others believe that it's about being sensitive and caring. But the truth is, being a man is about much more than that.

 

Being a male is a biological fact. It's determined by your chromosomes and your anatomy. But being a man is a choice. It's about living up to a certain standard of behavior and conduct. It's about taking responsibility for your a

In the quiet moments of the morning, as the world awakens with a gentle yawn, it's the perfect time to reflect on the power of forgiveness and mercy. These two virtues are the balm that heals wounds and the bridge that connects hearts.

Forgiveness is the act of letting go of resentments and grudges. It's not about forgetting the hurt, but rather choosing to rise above it. It's an act of strength, not weakness, and it frees us from the heavy chains of bitterness.

Mercy is the compassionate treatm

Pride is a sneaky sin that can easily creep into our Christian lives. It can manifest in many ways, including refusing to ask for help. If you're too proud to ask God for help, your Christian life won't stand a chance.

 

Here are three reasons why:

  1. Pride keeps us from admitting our need for God.
    The first step in receiving God's help is admitting that we need it. But pride makes us want to appear self-sufficient. We don't want to admit that we're weak or that we can't do it on our own.
  2. Pride mak

Hello, lovely ladies! Welcome to another edition of Christian daily devotion for women. Today, we're going to talk about how to find joy in the midst of trials. Sounds impossible, right? Well, not with God on our side!

 

The Bible tells us that we can rejoice in our sufferings, because suffering produces perseverance, perseverance produces character, and character produces hope (Romans 5:3-4). And hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Hol

This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.--Joshua 1:8, AMPC

"Meditation" is not some super-spiritual occultic practice. It's simply thinking about something over and over, and saying it.  We can take what our tendencies to worry, and convert them to po

13 If we are faithless [do not believe and are untrue to Him], He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself.--2 Timothy 2:13, AMPC

As the song "Way Maker" says, "Even when we don't see it, He's working...."! Hallelujah!

Why do we worry?

For me, it just comes naturally. My parents were worriers.

My mind goes back to final days before Mom’s death. She was recovering from lung cancer surgery and we were making important decisions.

Plans for Dad to enter assisted living were finalized. At the age of 87, his health was declining; he needed care that Mom could no longer provide. His social security payments would cover monthly payments to a nearby Veterans group home.

Mom’s small social security check w

If God is first in your life, everything can come into order. If God is not first in your life, nothing can come into order. And when I say everything comes into order, I don't mean that we won't have problems or tribulations. Jesus said,

"You will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."

I don't mean that you won't ever have any problems, because we live in a fallen world. But what I do mean is that everything in your life can come into order, and you can walk through

"[1]The lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you.

One desire of any serious mind is comfort and comfortability. It is not

The Bible admonishes us as Believers to trust in the Lord. Do you know why? Because even God knows that it is hard to trust without knowledge, information or physical evidence. However, true faith is tested when you do not understand the full scope of things, but choose to believe that someone has your best interest at heart. Trust is a choice. One that is made actively and not passively. The same way a man would accept to be joined to a woman forever, knowing full well that this woman can chang
