The Door

Jesus is not a revolving door. All that the Father gives to Him will come to Him (John 6:37) and no one can snatch Christ’s people out of His hand (John 10:28-30). 

The Great I Am

Jesus Christ is eternal; He has always existed. His words in John 8:58 demonstrate this clearly as He identifies Himself as the great I AM of the Old Testament.

A Closer Look

Anyone who has ever visited The Cheesecake Factory knows what a delight to the eyes their display case can be. Have you ever leaned in for a closer look at these goodies? What about when it comes to spiritual things? Do you desire to look more closely at Christ?

A Life Exhausted for Jesus

If by excessive labor we die before reaching the average age of man, worn out in the Master's service, then glory be to God. We shall have so much less of earth and so much more of heaven. It is our duty and our privilege to exhaust our lives for Jesus. —Charles Spurgeon

What's In a Name?

Today, our names act as a label; a name is rarely chosen as a means of defining our individual character. In days long ago, however, names carried far more significance. In the Bible especially, one can see that names were far more than mere labels.

Doctrine Matters

Doctrine matters. Regardless of the common seeker-driven battle cry that “doctrine divides” or “Jesus didn’t die for correct theology,” the reality is that doctrine does matter. In spite of the postmodern attempt to eschew the importance of doctrine and of truth, the genuine Christian knows that, without a right knowledge of the truth, a person cannot be saved. Doctrine matters.

Salvation Is a Work of God

There is a difficult but marvelous truth to be found within the pages of Scripture: You, dear Christian, cannot save anyone. Nor can any sinner save himself. No matter how pithily or poetically one asks Jesus to "come into his heart," no matter how many zeroes are written on the check, no matter how piously the Lord's Table is approached, no matter how many Bible studies one participates in, no matter how many sermons one hears, no matter how many Bibles one owns, no man can bring himself to the point of salvation, nor can any man hold himself responsible for saving another. Salvation is a work of God.
