God has a two-phased project, first a separation process, followed by a unification process, in which all will be gathered and unified into Christ.
There must be something to prove we are one with Christ and in union with the Father and the Son. That something is the manner in which we conduct our life.
We must put on the entire armor of God, not just the defensive parts. We must proactively rather than reactively assume out part in the spiritual battle.
A lack of self-control, as well as the cultivation of self-indulgent perversions, will characterize large segments of our society living at the end times.
Anxious care and foreboding are debilitating and faith-destroying. Meditating on what God has already done strengthens our faith and trust in God.
All the signs point to Christ's imminent return, yet the Bible warns us not to let down. Hebrews 10 exhorts us to strive to please God and finish our course.
The idea of making resolutions to improve oneself is commendable, but we should carefully consider the kind of resolutions we make.
New Year's resolutions fail because they are too unrealistic or too many. If we set spiritual goals like many set New Year's resolutions, we will fail.
The spiritual new man is one who is reconciled to God and has chosen to collaborate with Him in creating a totally new mind—one just like Christ's!
What or who is the new man? The new man is Jesus Christ Himself, living in us by His Spirit, once we are baptized into Him.
All people will be judged according to the quality of their works after they make the covenant with God. Works are required and rewarded.
The top priority for the Israel of God is to cooperate with Him as He develops godly character through their mortifying the old man and putting on the new man.
Following our passions only applies if we invest the career capital to perfect our craft, honing our skills so that other people will pay for what we have to offer.
The priestly garments represent the holy character of God. Clothing is used as a badge of one's office and symbolizes what our character is like inwardly.
