Grow Your Faith – 7 principles on how to build your faith

How do you grow your faith? Real, working faith in God is not magical or mystical. It is not something that God gives to certain persons and not to others. Otherwise this would make God a respecter of persons. But we obtain faith by volition – i.e. the free-willed choice of the individual, which corresponds directly with the effort one applies in obtaining it. Read on to see how to grow your faith. First things first You may have heard…

Why should God get all the glory?

Why should God get all the glory?

Does the Sovereignty of God earn Him the right to all the glory?  Some say that God deserves all the glory because He is Sovereign. God is indeed supremely sovereign, but does His position alone warrant Him receiving all the glory? If the devil reigned supremely, should he get all the glory? No? There is glory in everything. The sun, moon and stars have their glory (1Co 15:41). The heavenly and earthly have their own respective glory (1Co 15:40). There…

Justification vs sanctification – which comes first?

Understanding Justification and Sanctification It is imperative that we understand the concepts and difference of justification and sanctification. For both are required for our salvation. But does justification or sanctification come first? Or do we receive them both together? Does it matter? And, if justification saves us, do we need to be sanctified?

Making the change to live in victory  

Making the change to live in victory  

Live in victory-it’s your call! Own what we didn’t earn! No matter what state we may find ourselves, we have whatever time that remains of our lives for making the change to victory. But we will not be doing it alone. It is God’s desire and design to bring each one of us to that high place in Him (Jer 29:11). We do not need to fear the insurmountable feat of winning victory. For even though the victory in life…

Fear God – Really? Doesn’t perfect love cast out fear?

Fear God – Really? Doesn’t perfect love cast out fear?

Does perfect love cast out all fear of God? Do we have to fear God if we are saved? And whose love is scripture referring to when it says: There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.  (1Jn 4:18)? Let’s discover what the fear of God means and if it applies to Christians. I have often heard it taught that as Christians…
