Death and Resurrection of Jesus (Part 1)

When I heard of the attack that happened in Brussels, I thought hard on it and the more I think about it the clearer the picture of what these suicide bombers believe in. They believe in a cause - of which you and I know it’s all wrong. Yet they were willing to die for that cause. Beloved Jesus Christ came and died for mankind (the greatest cause). Jesus took it upon Himself and died in our place that the power of sin and death might be broken (Hebrews 2: 14). Beloved, how serious are you with your relationship with God? Are you keeping your faith now because this is the Lenten season? Is this what the Bible truly say, that we follow Jesus during a particular period of time and then continue in our worldly ways at other times?

This is a hard saying: It is easier to manage poverty than to manage wealth. This was the reason why Moses taught the people of Israel all that God had commanded him to teach them. He (Moses) urged them to be careful in listening and obeying all that was written most es…

PRINCIPLES OF BIBLICAL SUCCESS

Success is often associated with accomplishments or having things such as lots of money, material possession, or high position of power. But have you ever considered what success is in God’s sight? Let us see what is the world’s view point of success compared to God’s view point as found in the bible. Dictionary meaning of success: it is the favourable prosperous attempts or endeavours. It is the attainment of wealth, position, honours or the like. This definition of success is based on tangible things and what other people think of you. There is a part of success that is true and founded upon God’s word. Success for a believer is based on the word and not attempts at gaining worldly popularity or material gain. To understand true success (Joshua 1:8) we need to gain knowledge of some basic principles that can help us as we need to gain knowledge of some basic principles that can help us as we strive for success in God’s eyes. These principles are some of the things that we need to prac…
