Misery can be scary for us. In times like these we have the intention: Let’s make it clear! Well, it is better to let God do that.
(1Sam 1:4-10; Psa 50:15)
There were two categories of sinners. The cross, Jesus puts everyone into the same category. Because in this category there is sacrifice and this sacrifice has been already sacrificed for us. What does this mean in our relationship with God and with people?
(Num 15:24-31; Luk 23:34; 1Tim 1:13; Acts 7:59-60; 2Tim 4:16; 1Jn 1:9; 1Pt 5:5-7; James 4:10)
What do you do when the sea is in front of you and the Pharaoh – Satan – and his army is behind you?
God want his people to humbleness be one of their characteristics and their main virtue. What is humility? Where can it be learnt? Why is it good for us?
(1Pet 5:5-6; Psa 33:13-14, 14:2-3; Phil 2:6-8; Mat 11:28-29, 26:53; Gal 3:13; Tit 2:14)
Would you like to be blessed? Then never give up the plan of God!
We all are sinners but this is good because only a sinner can experience grace. The saving grace of God appeared to all man. What does it mean? What characterizes grace?
(Tit 2:11-12, Gal 4:4a, Rom 5:6-8, 1Jn 4:9, Ro 11:6)
We may err as we think about sin – whether it be ours, or someone else’s. What is the mind of God and what is my responsibility when I sin, or I see that others commit sins, or that someone sins against me? (Job 42:7, Mk 11:25, Mt 5:23-24, Psa 59:17(18)) We may live in…
When we Christians bring up the issue of sin, people often accuse us of creating a problem where there is none. However, sin is evident around us everywhere, everyone is trying to deal with it, solve it on our own, but it just doesn’t succeed. I need friends to turn my eyes in the right…

This discussion was held in connection with the message Consicence with God on November 8, 2015, Sunday.
Public enemy #1 is our consicence. This may be the reason we cannot serve God out of a pure heart, then that influences our relationships as well. We attempt to placate our consciences, but God has satisfied the demands of His “conscience”, so His mind does not consider our sin. The Gospel is the greatest…
This discussion was held in connection with the message Casting Away All Hypocrisy & God’s Provision in Contrast to Human Logic & Love Is The Perfect Bond on 2015 May 24, Sunday.
