Lunch with Jesus

If Jesus walked into your church today, who would He sit by? Who would he choose to share a meal with afterwards? The Bible actually records the answer to this question. Matthew 9:10-13 – While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and “sinners” came and ate with him and his disciples. When […]

The Indwelling Holy Spirit

It should not surprise us to know that our new spirit and God’s Holy Spirit share a commonality. After all, our new spirit was created in the image of God. Our new spirit communes directly and regularly with the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit has the amazing interpersonal work of bringing our inner man […]

Created to be like God

God’s original design for man was that we would reflect his image. Genesis 1:27 tells us that when Adam and Eve were created by God, they were created in the image or likeness of God.

Faith for Your Inheritance (Hebrews 11)

Faith for Real Righteousness

The Bible says “Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.”  (Genesis 15:6) The word “credited” there means to deem, judge, and determine something as having a like force and weight.
