Jesus Is Worthy to Speak in Your Defense

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: (1 John 2:1) Some time ago, I received a religious e-mail that gave a portrayal of a person who was on trial in court.  Satan was the prosecutor.  God was the judge.  And Jesus served as their defense attorney.  I thought about my own life... 

Walk In The Light Of Jesus Christ

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1st John 1:7) Jesus Christ can be found in light and not in darkness.  I can recall in 2007 during the month of December, the residents of Oklahoma lost power in the city of Tulsa.  They discovered what life is like without light.  My Uncle used... 

A Living Word In Our Hearts

I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.  (1st John 2:14) Mississippi Mass Choir sang a song ”It’s Good To Know Jesus”.  It is in fact good to know Jesus and it is good that Christ knows us.  The focus...

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.

Doing What Pleases God Builds Confidence

Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.  And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.  (1 John 3:21-22) If you have ever known someone who plays sports, you will find that the more they play the game, the better they become.  The more they practice on performing a certain feat, the... 

Love Is a Verb, Its What You DO

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. (1st John 3:18) Love is a verb.  It is sometimes used as an adjective or a noun.  But here, it is used as a verb.  It is not what you say or how you feel.  It is an action word.  Love is what we do.  Many years ago, a popular song was sang throughout America.  What the world needs now is love, sweet...
