Eternal Life Now

Eternal Life Now I am come that they may have life and have it abundantly. ((John 10:10) The essence of eternal life is for you to personally know God the Father and Jesus Christ, His Son.

A Response of Wonder

A Response of Wonder As one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. (Romans 5:18) The doctrine of justification by faith- a biblical truth, and a blessed relief from sterile legalism and unveiling self effort- has in our time fallen into evil company and been interpreted by many in such manner as…

Consent to Dependence

Consent to Dependence Andrew Murray continues: Our eyes look to the Lord our God, till he has mercy upon us.(Psalm 123:2) When man fell from God, he was even more absolutely dependent on Him.

Following Hard After God

Following Hard After God My soul clings to you, your right hand upholds me.(Psalm 63:8)   Christian theology teaches the doctrine of prevenient grace, which briefly stated means this, that before a man can seek God, God must first have sought the man. Before a sinful man can think a right thought of God, there must have been a work of enlightenment done within him;…

God’s Invitation

Gods Invitation Those who know your name but their trust in you, for you,O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.(Psalm 9:10) God is not a concept or a doctrine. He is a person who seeks a close one-on-one relationship with you and me. God does not want us to merely believe in Him, He wants to relate to us on a personal level. God’s plan is not to abandon Christians…

He himself gifts for all mankind life and breath and everything…….”in him we live and…
