REPENTANCE
      Jesus said that the right way to enter His sheepfold (His kingdom) was through the door. But He said that some would try to come in by climbing over the wall (Jn. 10:1). The way that God has laid down for man to be saved is by repentance and faith in t ... read more

Respectable And Dead
      In the Church at Laodicea (Rev.3:14-22) they were neither immoral nor evil. But they were not on fire for God either. They were just plain "lukewarm" (v.16). They were dead right in their doctrines - but they were both dead and right! They were morally ... read more

Righteous
       I’ll preach this morning on the paths of the righteous. As we read on Proverbs Chapter 4 and verse 18, Proverbs 4:18 says, “The paths of the righteous is like the light of dawn that shines brighter and brighter until the full day”. The picture here i ... read more

River of Life and the Tree of Life
      Rev 22:1-2: And He showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street and on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit eve ... read more

Rivers of Living Water
      The Holy Spirit is pictured in the New Testament as a river flowing from the throne of God and falling to earth (Rev. 22:1; Acts 2:33). To be baptised in the Holy Spirit is to be immersed under this waterfall. Jesus said that all those who thirsted could ... read more

Sacrificing Everything
      Jesus said to the Father, "All that is mine is Thine." And so He could also add, "All that is Thine is Mine" (Jn.17:10). When all that is ours is freely given to God, then all that God has will also be freely given to us. In the measure that we give t ... read more

Salvation From Self-centredness
      Jesus came to save us from sin. In other words, He came to save us from self-centredness. Put the word "self-centredness" instead of the word `sin' in the New Testament and you'll see what meaning comes up in many passages. "Sin shall not be master o ... read more

Samuel Grew Up "In Favour both With the Lord and With Men"
      Hannah had prayed to the Lord for many years for a child. Finally she made a vow saying, "Lord, If You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give me a son, then I will give him to ... read more

SANCTIFICATION
      The twofold message of the gospel is summed up in the words of Jesus to the woman caught in sin: (i) I do not condemn you; and (ii) Do not sin any more. (Jn. 8:11). Justification is the starting line of the Christian race and sanctification is the t ... read more

Sanctification, Fellowship And Unity In Diversity
      The word 'fellowship' is a new covenant word. The fellowship spoken of in the new covenant is patterned after the fellowship that Jesus and the Father had with each other during Jesus' earthly days. Jesus' prayer was that the fellowship among His disc ... read more

Scriptural Teaching On Generational Curses
      There is a very important verse in Ezekiel 18 that can help remove any confusion in our minds concerning “generational curses”. “What do you mean by using this proverb, ‘The fathers eat the sour grapes but the children’s teeth are set on edge’?” (Ezek. 18 ... read more

Second Requirement For Spiritual Progress-The Holy Spirit
      It is impossible to live a victorious Christian life or to serve God effectively, if we are not filled with the Holy Spirit. Forgiveness of sins and the Holy Spirit are the two gifts that God offers to all repentant sinners AS SOON AS they turn to Him. ... read more

Secure in Knowing God as Our Father
      John 1:18 speaks about one of the purposes Jesus had in coming to earth. Most people think He came only to die for our sins, but let’s look at this verse: “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he ha ... read more

Seek Desperately For the Baptism in the Holy Spirit
      In 2 Kings Chapter 2, we see the persistence of Elisha when Elijah tested him. When Elijah was about to be taken up to heaven, Elisha went along with him to Gilgal. Elijah told Elisha to stay in Gilgal, as he was going to Bethel. Elisha said, "No. I am co ... read more

Seek God For Wisdom
      The Bible says that Divine wisdom can be obtained only if we seek for it as we would for hidden wealth (Prov. 2:4). Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven was like a treasure hidden in a field that a man, when he discovered it, sold everything he had, in o ... read more

Seek To Be a Vessel, Sanctified and Useful For God
      One of the characteristic of a true servant of God is that he must be a holy vessel, a vessel who cleanses himself (2 Tim. 2:20, 21).There are two cleansings spoken of in the New Testament. One is the cleansing that God does:"The blood of Jesus cleanses u ... read more

Serving the Lord by the Power of the Holy Spirit
      A spiritual leader does all of his work in the will of God, by the power of God, and for the glory of God. Therefore it will come through the final fire of testing as gold, silver and precious stones (1Cor.3:12-15). In 2 Corinthians 3:5,6, Paul says that ... read more

Seven Great Qualities of David
      1.In 2 Samuel, Chapter 1 we read about the death of Saul. Saul had hated David so much that he had chased him all over Israel, for more than ten years, trying to kill him. Now at last, he was dead. If you were in David's place, what would your reaction ha ... read more

Seven Qualities of True Servants of God
      In Malachi 2:5-6, Malachi compared the Levites of his time with the Levites of old. And today the Lord reminds us of how the first apostles were, how they left everything to follow the Lord. "Compare yourself with them," He says to us. The Lord says, "The ... read more

Shepherds And Hirelings
      In Ezekiel 34:3-6, the Lord rebukes the shepherds of Israel. He rebuked them for eating the fat of the sheep and clothing themselves with their wool. They had not strengthened the sickly, nor healed the diseased, nor bound up the wounded sheep. They had n ... read more

Shibboleths Among Believers
      In the days of the judges in Israel, the Gileadites devised an unique method of testing who belonged to their camp and who didn't. They asked everyone to say the word "Shibboleth". Their enemies, the Ephraimites, would pronounce this as "Sibboleth", ... read more

Should We Follow Godly Men or Only Follow Jesus?
      Under the old covenant, the Israelites could only follow the written Word that God gave them through Moses and the prophets. No-one could say,"Follow me" - not even the greatest prophets like Moses or Elijah or John the Baptist. God's Word alone was the l ... read more

Show Mercy Out Of Gratitude
      We must never lose the wonder of the forgiveness that the Lord has granted us so freely. OUR WHOLE LIFE MUST NOW BE LIVED AS AN EXPRESSION OF GRATITUDE TO THE LORD FOR ALL THAT HE DID FOR US ON CALVARY'S CROSS. Under the Law it was through threats of judg ... read more

Six Aspects Of The Grace Of God
      "This is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it" (1 Pet.5:12). Here at the end of Peter's first letter, he says that what he has written in his letter is all about the true grace of God. In these days when false grace is being preached so much, it is ... read more

Six Blessed Psalms
      Psalm 3 was written by David when he was ousted by his son Absalom and had to escape from Jerusalem. He expresses his trust in God here. He says, "Lord, You are my Glory and the Lifter of my head." (Ps. 3:3). We usually sing that verse in a comfortable bu ... read more

Some Important Truths That I Have Learnt
      During the 40 years that I have been a born-again Christian, I have learnt some important truths that have encouraged me and given direction and purpose to my life. I share them here with you with the hope that they will be an encouragement to you as well ... read more

Some Reasons for Perpetual Financial Difficulties
      When we receive from God and hold on to what we have received selfishly, we die spiritually. The clenched fist is an appropriate symbol of the race of Adam - grabbing whatever it can get and holding on tightly to what it has. Jesus had an open palm on Cal ... read more

Sovereignty Of God
      The total sovereignty of God over all people and circumstances, is a matter concerning which many believers remain in doubt. They may give lip-acknowledgement to it, but they don't believe it "works" in the situations of daily life. Yet the Scriptures ... read more

Spirit Of Sacrifice
      In 2 Chronicles 3:1, we read that "Solomon began to build the house of the Lord on Mount Moriah". Mount Moriah was the place where Abraham had offered his son Isaac to God (Gen22). There on that mountain Abraham understood God's way as the way of sacri ... read more

Spirit Of The New Covenant
      There were many under the old covenant who came to an exceptionally God-fearing life. One cannot imagine Elijah behaving in an improper way with the opposite sex or John the Baptist running after money or Moses seeking the honour of the world. So the mere ... read more

Spirit-Filled Service
      There are four things that I would like to mention concerning Spirit-filled service, from the words of the Apostle Paul. First of all, Spirit-filled service is the service of a love- slave. In Acts 27:23, Paul says, "...the God whose I am and whom I s ... read more

Spiritual Dangers when we are Blessed
      When the blessing of the Lord comes upon our life and labours, we face many dangers. Spiritual Pride The first of all dangers is spiritual pride. Whenever God blesses us, Satan will tempt us to compare our spiritual growth and ministry with that of ... read more

Suffering According To God's Plan
      God does not protect His faithful children from suffering. He knows that suffering is necessary for our spiritual growth. And the church in Smyrna was not spared suffering. But the Lord encouraged them saying, "Do not fear what you are about to suffer." ... read more

Taking God's Word Seriously
      A bad habit that many believers have is that of taking God's Word lightly. Take Jesus' words in Matthew 12:36, 37 for example: "Every careless (idle) word that men shall speak, they shall render account for it in the day of judgement. For by your wo ... read more

Temptation and Sin
      There is a difference between being tempted and sinning. The Bible says, "Each one is tempted when he is enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin" (Jas.1:14,15). Sin is not born in our heart, until the desire of our f ... read more

That Which Costs Us Everything
      Abraham's devotion was tested that day when God asked him for Isaac (Gen22:1-2). Had God asked Abraham for 10,000 sheep or for 5,000 rams, that would have been far easier for Abraham to offer. But one Isaac cost him everything, and he decided to offer no ... read more

The Assurance of Faith
      God wants us to have perfect assurance in our hearts that we are indeed His children. He never wants us to be in doubt about that fact. Satan will try his best to keep us in doubt. But we need never be in doubt, for God has given us many promises in Hi ... read more

The Blessing of Abraham
      The Bible says that the gift of the Holy Spirit is meant to bring to us "the blessing of Abraham" (Gal.3:14). When God blessed Abraham, He told him, "I will bless you and you will be a blessing. In you all the families of the earth will be blessed..." (Ge ... read more

The Bull's Eye
      Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:26 that he had a very definite aim in what he was doing. He didn't fight or run aimlessly. He ran towards a definite goal. He fired at a definite target. I remember the days when we cadets were being taught to shoot with ri ... read more

The Call to Overcome
      Peter says, "Since all these things (the existing heavens and earth) are to be destroyed, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness" (2 Pet. 3:11,12). The message of the Spirit in these last days, can be summed up in one word ... read more

The Church - The Body of Christ
      The church is not a building, nor is it a denomination. The English word `church' in the New Testament is a translation of the Greek word `ekklesia', which means an assembly of people who are called out - in this case, called out of the world to be God ... read more

The Confession of Faith
      The Bible says that we must confess what we believe. "If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the ... read more

The Cross Brings Victory
      The message of the cross has a brighter side - a positive one. It is this, that the cross is not an end in itself. It is a pathway to the resurrection life. There is a joy set before all who are willing to accept the working of the cross (Heb. 12:2). The ... read more

The Daily Sacrifice
      We read in Daniel 11:31, that one of the things that the antichrist will put an end to is "THE DAILY SACRIFICE". Jesus constantly spoke to His disciples of a daily sacrifice - a daily sacrifice that he Himself had in His life: "If anyone will come afte ... read more

The Danger of Depending on Human Wisdom
      Ecclesiastes has been included in Scripture to show us that even the wisest man on earth can miss finding God when he depends on his human cleverness. Jesus once said, "I thank You, Father, that You have hidden these things from the clever and the intelli ... read more
