Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus

Philippians 2 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but inContinue reading “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus”

Considering Proverbs 10:7

7 The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot. When we think about the “name of the wicked,” it can be easy to think about those extreme characters within the history of mankind. It can also be easy to think about people in our lives. Mankind is capable ofContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:7”

The Whole Need Not a Physician

This life can be so damaging, and even the most desirable life can leave us scarred and wounded. We live in a fallen world of faulty human beings, and no one is guiltless. We have all hurt someone. We have all done things that we regret, and very often the damage we inflict onto othersContinue reading “The Whole Need Not a Physician”

Confessions of a Wicked and Slothful Servant

I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I was nine years old, if I remember correctly. I base this timing off the bible that I was given soon afterward, which was dated in December of 1996. Although I’m fuzzy on some details, because I was just a kid and did not pay attentionContinue reading “Confessions of a Wicked and Slothful Servant”

Considering Proverbs 10:3-5

3 The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry,    but he thwarts the craving of the wicked. 4 Lazy hands make for poverty,    but diligent hands bring wealth. 5 He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son,    but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son. When considering the above passages from a Christian perspective, I see two interpretations:Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:3-5”

Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains (Complete Series)

Faith is fundamental for any Christian. Our salvation hinges on faith, and yet I wonder how much we truly understand what a “faith-based” life really means.

Jesus tells us that even faith as aContinue reading “Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains (Complete Series)”

Why I Believe in Jesus: He is the Physician

It can feel awkward talking or writing about the things Jesus has done for you. On one hand, I want to talk about who I was and the changes He made in me so that He is honored and so that others might be encouraged. However, I also understand that doing so can be offContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus: He is the Physician”

Considering Proverbs 10:2

2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death. As Christians, we know that the only righteousness that will deliver us from death is the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Our own righteousness is not enough and never will be. As Christians, we also know that there is nothing we can do to earn theContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:2”

The Problem with Kings–We are the Four Horsemen

This was originally posted on October 4, 2019 on my first website, http://www.kindlingtruth.com I abandoned that project for a few reasons, and I’ve been thinking about that decision lately. I’m not sure that I made the right choice. In any case, I have decided to republish some of the articles from that website to thisContinue reading “The Problem with Kings–We are the Four Horsemen”

Why I Believe in Jesus—He is Truth

In my last testimony article, I wrote about the point in time when Jesus began to take over my life in a meaningful way. I prayed and He answered in a way that I did not expect. One of the main reasons why I prayed to Jesus that night was because I needed answers. IContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus—He is Truth”
