JULY 26, 2017 – TRIALS OR TEMPTATION? (2)

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. —James 1:13-14, Temptations and trials are words which are oftentimes misinterpreted. At every point in life, people are being tempted, irrespective of their status or belief. God is not an author of temptation as against the popular misconception. Temptation comes from satan.

JULY 24, 2017 – TRIAL OR TEMPTATION? (1)

Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

But Naaman was wroth and went away, and said, “Behold, I thought, ‘He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his hand over the place, and cure the leper”  2 Kings 5:11 Blessings come from different angles, usually from unexpected sources.

JULY 17, 2017 – GROWING SPIRITUALLY (4)

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. John 14:26 The presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Christian determines spiritual growth. The Holy Spirit is a part of the Trinity – Father, Son and The Holy Ghost. He is a personality, not an object. He lives in the heart of a believer from the point of conversion. That is to say that, when a person receives Jesus into his or her...
