True faith is evident

Most of us claim to have faith or to believe in God.  It is easy to make such profession when things seem well in our lives.  However, it is in those difficult times that our faith will be shown; it will be evident whether we truly believe or not.  James 2:14-26 reminds us that faith…

Am I really a true follower of Jesus?

Large crowds followed Jesus everywhere he went; he was undoubtedly a very popular person during his ministry on earth.  Have you ever thought that not everyone in the crowd became a true follower of Jesus?  Sometimes people think they can follow Jesus in their own terms or whichever way they please.  Jesus defined the relationship…

God’s will!

God’s will can be both known and unknown.  In Scripture we can see that God’s will can be secret and also known.  God’s secret will (Supreme, sovereign) is God’s plan for everything.  He does as he pleases.  We don’t know what God has plan unless he reveals it to us.  Det.29:29  The secret things belong…
