We Are Justified by Faith in Jesus, Not By The Works of The Law
Place faith in Jesus, not your ability to keep the law. For no one can keep the law. Yet we see that man wants to continue in the work of religion. The evil works of religion is all around us. Religion sows to the flesh. It makes you think you are doing something to earn your way to heaven. But there is only one way, and that is through faith in Jesus. Jesus did it all.
Just as a person’s physical growth is based on proper diet and exercise, so is the Christians’s spiritual growth dependent on regular feeding upon the word of God and application of its principles. With more false teaching, shifting opinions and general confusion in the world than ever before, Christians need a solid foundation upon which to base their beliefs and build their lives. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

It is God Who Justifies the Wicked, Not the Righteous
There is something in the human nature, our flesh, our pride in self that wants to believe that God justifies those that are righteous. We think, we are not as bad as someone else. Yet we are told in the Scriptures that God justifies the wicked, not the righteous. Why is that? Because there isn’t any one righteous in and of themselves. No one is good, no not one. No one is righteous, no not one (Romans 3:10). Only by a person’s faith in Jesus, the Only Righteous One, is a person declared righteous in God’s sight. And it is because of Jesus, and His righteousness (not our own) that we can be declared righteous in His sight forever.
Romans 4:5 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly (the wicked), his faith is counted for righteousness.
Romans 3:26 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Faith in Jesus Prepares You For The Tribulations in Life ~ Are You Prepared?
Coming to faith in Christ Jesus does not mean that your life down here on earth is going to be a bed full of roses. Because the tribulations of life are sure to come upon us all. And even more so as we approach the end times, for tribulation is all around us. Likewise, when children grow and become young adults, we need to prepare them for what they will be facing ahead in life. They first off need to know Christ to begin with, because Satan will place all types of stumbling blocks in their way and try to get them off the straight path. This is why we even need to be reminded ourselves, that our hope is in Him, not in ourselves and realize that we too can get off the straight path without even realizing it. We need to have our minds renewed by Him, and the Holy Spirit who is alive in us (if we truly are born again of the Spirit of God). Are you prepared for the tribulations of life?… Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Do You Understand What the Word of God Means?
Sometimes as a Christian, we can get frustrated with others or even angry that others do not understand the Word of God as it relates to their living or wanting to do things that are contradictory to the clear teaching of the word of God. Many times, people that we think (assume) are Christians are not Christians, and that is why they do not understand the word of God. They have not been sanctified by the Truth yet. They are not born again believers in Christ Jesus.
Now from our standpoint (those of us who are born again) we get angry with some of those that we may be very close to, and it is because of the fear that creeps into our own being. We react in fear, and lash out in anger, even if it is held inside ourselves when someone doesn’t get what you yourself know is Truth. So, if you see a person that doesn’t understand the word of God, instead of getting angry inside, share Truth with them. Don’t assume a person is saved, for God wants … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Jesus is Our Everything to All in Those in Christ Jesus
When a person is in Christ Jesus, Jesus is our everything. He is our Righteousness. He is our Holiness. He is our Sanctification. He is our Forgiveness. He is our Reconciliation. He is our Redeemer. He is our Life Giver. He is our Justifier. He is our everything, for we cannot do anything apart from Him. For He lives in us and directs us and instructs us in the world today.
Yet we see so many “churches” are out there being busy and barren all caught up in religion. They fail to realize that the church is the body of believers and have been instructed to go out into the world and share Jesus with the world, for we are Christ’s ambassadors.
