God Loved ~ He Gave ~ We Believe

by Ladd

I just returned from vacation and realized it has been a long time since I sent out my last post. I woke yesterday morning to the headlines of the worse mass shooting in United States history with over two-hundred and fifty people killed or wounded in the Los Vegas shooting. We live in a world […]

A Mothers Prayer

“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” 3 John 1:4 Is this the greatest joy you could ever imagine? In our text John is, of course, speaking of the church as his children, but we may well draw the application to our physical children. Do you […]

“Only let us live up to what we have already attained.” Philippians 3:16 Philippians 3 is a series of texts that every Christian should read on a regular basis.

“John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Luke 3:16 The “John” in our verse is John the Baptist, cousin of Jesus Christ, […]

 “May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” Galatians 6:14 Galatians is probably the first letter, which we still have, that Paul wrote and was written to try and correct the problem of adding to the […]

Without the gospel, the church falls. Without the gospel, the church […]

A few days ago I received a copy of Derek Kidner’s commentary on Jeremiah in “The Bible Speaks Today” series. This is a short 176-page book that really skims Jeremiah, but Kidner, being an amazing scholar, brings out the best of Jeremiah on every page. But, what I found of most interest is a short […]

A Merciful and Faithful High Priest

by Ladd

17 “Therefore He had to be made like His brethren in every respect, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make expiation for the sins of the people. 18 For because He Himself has suffered and been tempted, He is able to help those who […]

The Rescue…

by Ladd

5 “It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking. 6 But there is a place where someone has testified: ‘What is mankind that you are mindful of them, a son of man that you care for him? 7 You made them a little lower than the angels; […]

The Marvel Of the Gospel!

by Ladd

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture says, Whosoever believeth on him shall […]
