Hidden Things

Hidden Things

Hidden No More Mark 4:22 KJV “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.” I remember an incident which involved myself when I was in school. A classmate accused me of cheating during a Math test. She was jealous because I received a higher mark than hers. I mean, sure Math wasn’t my strongest subject; I was an average student when it came to numbers. Even…

Perfectly Blameless

Perfectly Blameless

What does it  mean to be of blame, and what does it mean to be blameless? This conversation happened between two friends : “I always get blamed for everything!” “Why? What did you do this time?” “…nothing!” “You don’t sound so sure.” “Well, I am. I did nothing!” “Nothing?” “Nothing.” “Well…. I don’t mean to sound judge–y, but maybe that there’s the reason why.” “What? How do you mean?” “Nothing.” “Wh…. don’t ‘nothing’ me! What did you think I did…

Where Is Your Name?

Where Is Your Name?

Luke 10:20 KJV “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” People are happy for various reasons, mostly for personal successes and triumphs.

Effectual Fervent Prayer

Effectual Fervent Prayer

James 5:16b KJV “…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” A very important question to ask is, what is an effectual fervent prayer? During Sunday School, the little girl was asked by her teacher to give a prayer of thanks and blessing for snacks the children would eat. It would be her first time ever to pray in front of others, her peers regardless. The little girl was understandably very shy and hesitant. But she was also…

Hide And Seek

Psalm 102:1-2 KJV “Hear my prayer, O Lord , and let my cry come unto thee. [2] Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.” Children has this adorable way of playing hide and seek: they hide their face only and immediately the whole world is shut out to them. Or, the child closes his eyes, and as long as…

Care Enough To Pray

Care Enough To Pray

1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV “Pray without ceasing.” Ephesians 6:18 KJV “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” One of the questions a new Christian asks concerning 1 Thessalonian 5:17 is, “But how do I pray continously? I have to stop sometimes.” Such a question pops up because of their understanding that “without ceasing” means “without stopping”. Well, sure, why not? Literally praying without stopping is not…

“Don’t tell me what to do!” demands the person who’s telling me what to do. However, I won’t get into how contradictory and hypocritical that demand is.

The more you know, I say. No one cares, you insist. Well it’s my page, I reply. So here we are, me…

Fickle Faith

Fickle Faith

Hebrews 10:38-39 KJV “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. [39] But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. When the boss is out-of-town, the office staff often proves the old adage, “When the cat’s away, the mice will play.” Compare this story in the Old Testament to the parable in the…

Remove The Mote

Remove The Mote

Matthew 7:3-5 KJV “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? [4] Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? [5] Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of…
