Do you test yourself to confirm you are going the right way, doing what you committed to when accepting Christ? Are you seeing “good fruit”? This Checkoff List can help examine your life.
A natural tendency is to wax and wane. Over time we can begin to be insensitive to others, and rationalize away our failures. We may be averse to honest self evaluation. We may redefine our “sin” and behavior – and negate the fact that we have actually changed.
We are all so sinful. Incomplete. But there are many today who say sin is irrelevant. They say they are not sinning. How odd. Sinning is so common. I sin. You sin. What’s with this?
Have you discovered what leads to godly living? Are you pursuing that?
Do you have a spiritual relationship with Jesus? Are you ready to meet your maker? Ready to meet the bridegroom?
What does it mean to blaspheme? It matters nothing if you don’t care about Jesus.
God is asking us to turn from sin, and turn to Him. The simplicity of that Gospel of Jesus is so simple that many reject “turning”. How about you?
Be careful as you approach God. You might be doing evil – and not know it (Ecclesiastes 5:1). Do you legitimize your favorite sin as approved by God? Legit sins. What a deal that would be! Live anyway you want, but… just try to be very loving. God is so loving He’s sure to accept us, right?
As a Christian, do you know the One you worship? Are you hating on Jews these days? Do you realize where Jesus came from?
A faith that overcomes the daily faith challenges of life – is only possible because God made us brand new inside. Have you been made brand new – in Jesus?
Our “old self” is being continually corrupted “through deceitful desires”. So where do you find healing for your soul? What do you want to have accomplished with your soul – by the time you reach your final destination?

Verses in the Bible collected by Zofi to encourage and strengthen.
All Good When you find salvation in Christ you find the fountain of youth. You find everlasting life (John 3:14-19) with all that is good in God: Heaven. Wow. Oh what a day that will be! Not Good The opposite of course, if you stick with what you are and what you have naturally (1 […]
Ever feel alone in the dark? Wonder about spiders, ghosts, spirits and demons? In the midst of all our fears and doubts, God says “Do not neglect to extend hospitality to strangers”. How’s that going?
I was legally damned by God, but now I am legally forgiven. He will never leave me nor forsake me – because I have been born again – redeemed. And now, God continually refreshes and restores my soul. He comforts me.
How you live your life is your choice. But, Jesus rewards the good one. It’s a fight – to live right. But the reward is eternally worth it.
I am definitely “into it”. I am following Jesus with everything I can think of. Are you becoming more and more like Jesus? Un-becoming what you used to be into (Ephesians 2:3)?
I’m not particularly fond of waiting. I want perfect Heaven now! But the reality is that I am not complete. I have to wait for it.
When a person accepts Christ as Savior and Lord, a transformation journey begins. We start “un-becoming” (un-doing) what we were before Christ — and little by little “conforming” to Jesus. Our previous conforming to the world “pre-Christ” starts getting un-done as we begin our journey with Christ. Has that been your experience?
This is not an article to denigrate “Charismatics”. This is a resource for Charismatics to learn exactly what the Bible says about charismatic practices. We are to (2 Timothy 2:15) study the Bible so we can be “accurately handling and skillfully teaching the word of truth.”
…jocular facetious wit These days so many people must think I’m a fool. Oh, how could I be so uncool. Almost such a nitwit even. How can that be!? Újule! Yes, I believe Jesus was sent by God (John 3:13-18) to save people from being sent to Hell (John 3:17-18). Heaven is home for me […]
Being like Jesus is impossible. It’s being what nobody on earth can be… without being born again, born from above. You there?
You can change the course of eternity! Do you want to really live large? Make Jesus your Savior, the Lord of your life — forever.
