Walking By Faith

“. . . for we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Cor 5:7 NASU).

The Parable of the Resistance Fighter is a powerful illustration of walking by faith. “In time of war in an occupied country, a member of the resistance meets one night a stranger who deeply impressed him. They spend the night together in conversation. The stranger tells the partisan that he himself is on the side of the resistance – indeed that he is in command of the resistance, and urges the partisan to have faith in him no matter what happens.


What’s Really Important?

Ponder Haggai 1:1-15
Today’s Bible Verse: “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matt 6:33 NASU).
In the closing days of Old Testament history, Haggai, the prophet of God, arose to challenge the people of God to renew their vigor and strength to complete the rebuilding of the temple of God that had been suspended after the reign of Cyrus.


Baptism Now Saves Us

” Corresponding to that (the Flood, rr) baptism now saves you — not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience — through the resurrection of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 3:21 NASU).

The other day I saw in my email box an email titled 13 objections to baptism. I wondered why would anyone object to baptism? After all, it is commanded by our Lord Jesus and wouldn’t we all agree, as believers, that no one could be saved from their sins if one rejected doing what the Lord asks?
