Jude 17:20-25 | Psalm 63:2-6 | Mark 11:27-33

"There is One Who can protect you from a fall." —Jude 24 Each of us is in danger of falling away from our "sincere and complete devotion to Christ" (2 Cor 11:3). Even whole

churches can fall away from their love for Christ (see Gal 1:6; Mt 24:12). The majority of Christians will apostatize before Jesus comes a final time (2 Thes 2:3). When Jesus returns, will He find any faith on the earth? (Lk 18:8) "For all these ... More

"By obedience to the truth you have purified yourselves for a genuine love." —1 Peter 1:22

THE BATTLE OF DESIRES - One Bread, One Body, May 24, 2016
1 Peter 1:10-16 | Psalm 98:1-4 | Mark 10:28-31

"Do not yield to the desires that once shaped you in your ignorance." —1 Peter 1:14

Satan is trying to make us his slaves by pressuring and manipulating us through our carnal desires. He wants us to live "at the level of the flesh" (Eph 2:3) and to die spiritually (Eph 2:1). Therefore, we must "lay aside" our "former way of ... More

Ten Commandments of Intercession
Intercession may be the ultimate ministry in God's plan of salvation. Jesus forever lives to make intercession for us (Heb 7:25). He lived a simple life in Nazareth for thirty years and had a public ministry for three years. And now He has been interceding for us for almost two thousand years. That may tell us something of the inestimable importance of intercession.
