The Cure for anxiety (Part 1)

The cure of anxiety Part 1 Matthew 6:25-34 “”Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on.

39. The reality of eternal punishment

 39 • The Reality of Eternal Conscious Punishment of Unbelievers We have heard that wicked people who have rejected God will be punished.  And this is true.  Justice will be served. Many people agree that evil people should be punished for their sins, but they don’t agree with the duration and extent of God’s punishment.Continue reading “39. The reality of eternal punishment”

36. Go and make disciples

36 • Go and Make Disciples Jesus said many things to His disciples before He went to heaven. One of His last commands should be His children’s supreme concern and ambition.

25. The importance of fellowship

 25 • The Importance of Meeting with Fellow Believers The church is called God’s family or household (Ephesians 2:19). If you are a believer, whoever truly believes in Jesus Christ is your brother or sister! Whoever has been born of the Holy Spirit has the same Father (Romans 8:15, 16). This is an incredible thought!Continue reading “25. The importance of fellowship”

24. The importance of prayer

 24 • The Importance of Prayer Someone once said, just as the body needs oxygen in order to function, so the souls of men need prayer. In a sense this is true, but only shows one side of the coin. We don’t need prayer to function; we need God to function! Prayer is just theContinue reading “24. The importance of prayer”

22. The sufficiency of the word of God

Is what is written in the Holy Bible, sufficient and enough for us to know God eternally? Is what is written in the 66 books we call the Bible: enough to show us the way to God; all we need to believe to be saved for eternity; sufficient to know how to be united withContinue reading “22. The sufficiency of the word of God”

20. Can we trust the Bible?
