Victory in Jesus

“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:57). The hymn “Victory in Jesus” was written by Eugene M. Barlett (December 24th, 1885, to January 25th, 1941). Two years before his death from complications of a stroke, the song first appeared in a paperback song bookContinue reading “Victory in Jesus”

1 Timothy 6:11-21 (KJV)

6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fleeing is a reiteration of the phrase found in 1 Timothy 6:5 that urges the believer to withdraw themselves from the “perverse disputing” that “gain is godliness.”  Following this statement, we find that this evil mindsetContinue reading “1 Timothy 6:11-21 (KJV)”

Soul! F.M.

Have you ever been driving and while flipping through radio stations, found that there was nothing good to hear?

Ephesians 5:1-10 (KJV)

5:1-2 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Ephesians 4:17-24

4:17-19 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling haveContinue reading “Ephesians 4:17-24”

“Go For A Walk!”

Poet W.H. Davies once wrote a dialogue between Pleasure and Joy. In this dialogue he writes, “Now shall I walk or shall I ride?” ‘Ride,’ Pleasure said; ‘Walk,’ Joy replied.” It is important and interesting to know that the man who wrote this dialogue was a hobo.  A hobo is a travelling worker who oftenContinue reading ““Go For A Walk!””

Ephesians 4:1-7 (KJV)

4:1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called Beginning in chapter 4, Paul redirects his attention from primarily doctrinal to primarily practical.
