Living, Holy, and Acceptable Unto God

February 25, 2021 | by: James Law | 0 Comments

The mercies of God found in the Lord Jesus Christ call for the songs of loudest praise, and they also flow from a heart of faith.  Early in his letter to the Romans, the apostle Paul stated that through the preaching of the gospel the purpose of his ministry was “to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his ...

Take My Life and Let It Be

February 19, 2021 | by: James Law | 0 Comments

Reading the regiment of sacrifices in the books of Leviticus and Numbers can be a tough go. I don’t think anyone is ever tempted to want to return to the “good old days” after reading this section of Scripture.  Every year I am reminded of this in my annual Bible reading, but please don’t hear a bad att...

We are a few weeks away in our FBCG family from an extended study in the book of Romans. In my study prep for this series, I was reminded of the impact of this God-breathed letter from Apostle Paul. In the fourth century, Augustine (A.D. 354-430) heard a child singing the words tole lege, tole lege (“take up and read&rdquo... Keep Reading

Are Happiness and Joy the Same?

January 22, 2021 | by: James Law | 0 Comments

A common teaching among Christians for the last 100 years has been that happiness and joy are not the same thing.

Happiness is a fun, bouncy feeling that comes and goes based upon one’s circumstances. However, joy is an inn... Keep Reading

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb

January 14, 2021 | by: James Law | 0 Comments

The events of the past year have been a profound wake-up call for the second coming of Jesus Christ. No escapism in that claim, only blessed hope.

Those who produce the YouVersion Bible App have posted in recent years the Bible verse that was most often shared, bookmarked, and highlighted in a given year. Not surprisingly, the most sought out verses had themes dealing with fear and anxiety. In 2017, the most popular verse with YouVersion was Joshua 1:9 which is set in the context... Keep Reading
