The Gospel Redefined

DRob4JC 0

Last time, I went through what the gospel is, and what it means it terms of the Bible, but in the coming days I want to go through the gospel in a technical manner. Why? First, because everything that God does has purpose and meaning, and it’s good to know…

What Is The Gospel

DRob4JC 0

Technically in the Greek language, gospel means good news. Paul was the main biblical author who used the term. He defines what the gospel is in 1 Corinthians 15. 1 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which…

Comfort Sourced

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which…

Comfort Zone Theology

DRob4JC 0

What do you think of when you think of the term “comfort zone”? Is it negative or positive? It can be a positive term if one wants to be effective and productive. You may be in a job situation where you function well. You have a certain set of tasks…

What Does Christ Expect… Fruit

DRob4JC 0

Obviously we are not referring to physical fruit that we eat. However, the analogy exists that compares our lives and its outward manifestations (our deeds, speech) to a tree and the fruit it produces. Jesus sets the tone of the importance of fruit to the disciples in John 15. John…

We are engulfed in the world. We are bombarded with the senses of the world. Our framework is set in the mold and foundation of the world. However, when we join with Christ, our focus must change to Him. Our citizenship changes. Our allegiance changes. The world becomes an adversary.…

What Does Christ Expect… Fellowship

DRob4JC 0

We can get right to the heart of the matter.  If fellowship is not important, we would not be needed.  God is clearly able to sustain Himself without my help.  From the earliest patriarchs  in the Bible… Noah walked with God (Genesis 6:9).  Enoch walked with God (Genesis 5:24). Moses…

What Does Christ Expect… Faith

DRob4JC 0

Christ desires everyone to have faith in Him.  But for those who call Him Lord of their life, He expects our faith in Him to be unwavering. Our means to be born again into the family of God is by faith.  Our daily walk is to be by faith (2…

What Are your Expectations?

DRob4JC 0

I think it helps Christians to know both what is expected from Christ, and what He expects from us.  Often, we have our own ideas of what to expect from Christ. When our expectations are not in alignment with what Christ says He will do, then we get discouraged when…

The Gift of Tongues Is No Different Than The Other Gifts

DRob4JC 0

Tonight in the weekly Bible study at church, the topic was spiritual gifts from Romans 12. The gift of tongues is not even mentioned in this section, but it came up from the congregation. I like the way my pastor handled the inquiries by directing everything back to the Bible,…
