A family in Texas had a little lion cub. Somehow, they had gotten it and they thought they would raise it as a pet and keep it in their apartment.
One night they stepped across the hall to visit their friends while their baby boy slept in his crib. When they came back to their apartment, they
Living in sin is like having a running car in a closed garage: the more we live in sin, the more Carbon Monoxide will inevitably come out. It is a byproduct of our exhaust as sinful people. The visible smoke will also build up over time, and it is harder to see that we need

Try to imagine this. It is the year 1944 and Germany is at war with England.
Now suppose you have dual citizenship in both Germany and England and you are living in Germany. How will you be treated?
Conversely, suppose you have dual citizenship in both Germany and England and you are living in

There is a doctrine that is becoming popular that teaches that a Christian can reach a point in their lives where sin no longer has an effect on them. They cease to sin. Of course this totally goes against the Word of God. Hopefully, as we grow and mature as Christians sin has less of a hold on

"The idea of a substitutionary Christ accepted as an outward covering or refuge, instead of the power of "an endless life," is a cheat of the devil, and has been the ruin of thousands of souls. I fear this view of Christ, so persistently preached in the present day, encourages thousands in a false

Someone has said, “God had only one Son who lived without sin, but He has had no sons who have lived without prayer.” Jesus was constantly in prayer. He prayed before He ate, before great decisions, and in the Garden of Gethsemane before He went to the cross. Sometimes He prayed all night.

Imagine what a person, who has been smoking for fifty years, what their lungs would look like. That's what we would look like to God. All black and chard, stinky and crusty. When you're a smoker it?s not apparent to those that do not actually see a cigarette in your hand but the destruction

I once heard about a confrontation between a young boy and his mother.
The mother asked her son, "Young man, there were two cookies in the pantry this morning! May I ask how it happened that there’s only one now?"
The boy didn’t flinch but said, "It must’ve been so dark I

D L Moody was once asked why he urged Christians to be filled constantly with the Holy Spirit. "Well," he said, "I need a continual infilling because I leak!" He pointed to a water tank which had sprung a leak. "I’m like that!" he said. It’s a fact that living in this sinful world we do need to

Too many, Lord, abuse Your grace
In this licentious day,
And while they boast they see Your face,
They turn their own away.
Your book displays a gracious light
That can the blind restore;
But these are dazzled by the sight,
And blinded still the more.
The pardon such presume upon,

Arthur Pink, a theologian from another generation, talks against those who preach about Jesus as a savior from hell rather than a savior from sin. He explained that there are many who are dangerously deceived by this, because there are many who desire to escape the flames of hell, but have no

In one of his meetings, D.L. Moody was explaining to his audience the truth that we cannot bring about spiritual changes in our lives by our own strength. He demonstrated the principal like this: "Tell me," he said to his audience, "how can I get the air out of the tumbler I have in my hand?" One

Notice the text that says, “He halted upon his thigh.” That basically means he “limped” or “hobbled.” Jacob a rich man, with wives, children, and mighty possession most likely walked with his head held high and with an arrogant walk, but not any longer. Now Jacob was walking with a limp. He had

I remember when I was an assistant pastor in TN visiting a man who had lived his whole life in sin and selfishness. He finally came to the Lord in his sixties. When he was diagnosed with cancer, I went to visit him at his home shortly before his death.
