Spiritual Growth

Spiritual Growth

“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” (I Peter 2:2). “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (II Peter 3:18). These scriptures tell us that it is possible for God’s children to grow; it is God’s will that we should grow and how we may grow.

Jesus, Saviour

Jesus, Saviour

One of the titles given Jesus in the scriptures is “Saviour.” Robert Young defines the word that is translated “saviour” as: “A Saviour, preserver” (Young’s Analytical Concordance to the Bible). On the night of His birth, Luke informs us that the angel of the Lord...

The Christian Age

The culmination of God’s plan for the redemption of man is the church of Christ.  We might well assert that God’s plan for man’s salvation is the church of Christ.  Paul said in Ephesians 3:1-12: For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, If...

He That Soweth Discord Among Brethren

We now come to the last of the seven things that Solomon listed as being “an abomination unto Him” (God) in Proverbs 6:16-19. That is, “He that soweth discord among brethren.” The word “abomination” was “frequently used to express the idea of something loathed,...

A Heart That Deviseth Wicked Imaginations

We are continuing in our study of the seven things that are listed by Solomon as “things that are an abomination to God” (Prov. 6:16-19). The word “abomination” means “disgusting.” Thus all of these things we are studying are disgusting to God. Today we are studying...

Hands That Shed Innocent Blood

As we continue in our examination of the seven things listed by Solomon that are an abomination to God, we come to #3: “Hands that shed innocent blood” (Prov. 6:16-19). Paul, in discussing the terrible sins of the Gentile world in Romans 1:18-32 lists among the things...
