The Christian website, gotquestions.org, answers questions regarding faith, Scripture, Bible history, etc., but also queries about the difficulties in living out the Christian life daily.overcominghabitualsin

Today’s Post is their response to an age-old challenge.

And, I might add, the power of the Holy Spirit in the spiritual warfare with the enemies of our souls:

“… my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints…” Ephesians 6:10-17

Today’s Post comes from The Berean Call.org and it summarily explains the difference between Israel and the Church.

The text we have excerpted from www.bereancall.org is from their radio program and podcast called Search the Scriptures 24/7 with T.A. McMahon. On their site, you can download and listen, or you can click on the Transcript Link and read it online.

Their ministry is to encourage listeners to be like the Bereans of Acts 17:10-11.

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

For the past 13 years, Nancy Missler has been involved in The King’s High Way Ministry (www.kingshighway.org) which is dedicated to encouraging and teaching Christians how to walk out their faith. It focuses on the ‘practical application’ of Biblical principles.

I have excerpted a short study of Nancy’s titled “Our Free Will”.

It has been helpful to me in understanding that my best choices are always based on pleasing God.

For example, I may not feel like making that particular best choice which the Holy Spirit is prompting me to make; I might feel like my choice is the right one for my circumstances. Because, sometimes, when I choose to please God and make that best choice, it does not feel ‘honest’ to me, since I’m making it for Him and it’s not how I really feel (my own choice).

Nancy explains that when making what she calls a ‘contrary choice’ that is not my usual pattern of choice, but one that is being mindful of God’s holiness, “we are permitted to choose something we don’t feelWe have the authority – the word of the person in charge (which, of course, is God) - and we also have His power and His ability – to make that choice happen in our lives.

And, when my will gets softened and used to yielding to God’s best choices, they will not ‘feel’ so external, but will be internal and inborn.

(Yes! That’s sanctification!!) Amen,

Sunday Post: MOSES AS A TYPE OF CHRIST

Foreshadowing, ‘typology’, or pre-figuring is God’s way of showing us in OT persons or events, future events or aspects of Christ in the NT. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 10:10-11 that many things “were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.” Moses was a servant, friend, and prophet of

SUNDAY POST: Wide Is The Gate

“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death” Proverbs 14:12. Jesus said, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate
