The King Who Was A Perfect Servant

Jesus Christ is very God of very God, but when He came to mankind in the flesh, He took the form of a servant or bondslave upon Himself. There has only been one perfect Servant of God upon Earth, and, being the Son of God, Christ was the Servant of God in a way no…

“Arise and Go”

When we were children, how often did our parents tell us to do something, and we didn’t obey—because we didn’t consider it necessary or important? A teacher might have asked us to accomplish a particular task, but we reluctantly dragged our feet instead, and, ultimately, never completed it. Later on in our life, an employer…

The Steps to Take on Our Way to God

All roads lead to the same God, the world tells us. But the truth is that there’s only one road, only one right path leading to the one, true God. How can we know what path to take to get there? “Ask for the old paths,” the Bible says. The “old path” is the blood…

Only One Yoke

Have you ever felt like you have a yoke around your neck forcing you to go in a direction you do not want to go? Whenever a child of God recognizes that the spirit of the age we live in is trying to dictate to us and lead us in the wrong direction, we should…

Recognizing Jesus in Your Storm

“And Peter…walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid” (Matthew 14:29–30). The waves on the sea were truly high, and the wind was truly violent and overwhelmingly turbulent. But Peter did not notice or take them into consideration at first. He simply realized that it…

Being Overconfident Can Yield Defeat

It is amazing how quicky our ego inflates when God gives us victory over a particularly difficult situation. This reminds me of a mechanically-inclined guy whose vehicle breaks down. After he spends an extended amount of time agonizing over how to fix the problem, he eventually calls out in desperation to God for help. After…

Sitting at Jesus’ Feet to Hear His Word

“…as they went, He entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard His word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came up to Him, and said, Lord, dost thou not…

How to Fail God

If we want to know how to succeed in life, we should turn to the Bible. But how many realize that the Bible also gives many instances on how to fail? It’s true! Take a look at a few examples: Man’s first failure came right at the beginning of the human race. God specifically told…

Simple and Dependent

In this world, a little child is generally considered to be at the lowest level in society regarding knowledge, maturity, experience, and gullibility. Yet in God’s plan, this concept is completely the opposite. He looks with great favor upon little children, more so than adults. Jesus said, “Suffer the little children to come unto me,…

“Wash my feet?”

“…He poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded. Then …Peter saith unto Him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? …Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.”…
