GREAT GAIN

By | Bible Studies | No Comments

Thanks for the amazing reminder from Kim! “But godliness with contentment is GREAT GAIN. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” 1 Timothy 6: 6-7   Contentment! What a beautiful word! We all strive to be content, satisfied, and just at peace with what we already have or what we are going through!!!     These verses remind us “we brought nothing into this world and we can take nothing out of it.” Everything good we have is a gift from above!   Only Christ Himself can FILL the deep void we all have within us!…

(vv. 17-20) DO NOT walk in the uselessness of my mind, with obscured understanding, and alienated from the life of God through ignorance because of the callousness of my heart and thoughts….

Subtle Deceptions…

By | Bible Studies | No Comments

Today I was thinking of 1 Samuel chapter 5, when the Philistines took the Ark of God and set it next to their god Dagon. The next morning, Dagon had fallen and parts had broken off. They set Dagon back up, and then the next time they checked Dagon had fallen once again and broken. They decided, since they didn’t want to lose their own idol, to get rid of the Ark of God… (see 1 Sam 5.7). It is…

A Great Mystery Made Known to US!

By | Bible Studies | No Comments

It has been said that everyone loves a great mystery. My Bible study today was about a “mystery” which Christ let us in on. The mystery given to us to know (Matt 13.11; Luke 8.10), that we’re cautioned NOT to be ignorant of (Rom 11.25), and that we are STEWARDS of! (1 Cor 4.1). This mystery was hidden before Christ, but now is made known to us (Col 1.26). This mystery gives our lives eternal purpose and value. Mystery: something…
