Living God’s Way by God’s Power

Living God's Way by God's Power

The Christian life is a life of holiness. Unfortunately, many Christians do not know what holiness is nor how to pursue it. The result is not just a failure to live up to God’s standards.

The Faithful Slave

The Faithful Slave

The instructions the Scripture gives to Christian slaves and masters has broad application to believers in every time and place.

Helped by the Holy Spirit

Helped by the Holy Spirit

While Jesus was living on earth, he was the embodiment of Immanuel—God with us. But he told his disciples to rejoice that he was returning to the Father because he would give to his followers “another Helper” to be with them forever. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we are empowered toward loving obedience […]

Real Disciples

Real Disciples

Jesus addresses those who believed in him, calling them to be his real disciples by continuing in his word. Those who do so receive freedom from their slavery to sin, a place in the family of God, and a real hope that transcends the threat of death.

How to Know Who Jesus Is

How to Know Who Jesus Is

Throughout his life Jesus was often misunderstood, so much so that many people who though they knew him best found that they didn’t really know him at all. Even today many who assume they know Jesus are in danger of missing him altogether and will end up dying in their sins. But God is eager […]
