How do You Worship God?

How do You Worship GodIs worship learned or is it something that you just do naturally? Does it require a certain feeling or emotional state? How do you worship God?

By worship, we assume you are referring to the practice of Christians singing praise music during a church service. Obviously, worship is a much broader concept than this narrow definition, but many Christians have come to see worship in this limited context.

Scripture, on the other hand, defines worship as obedience. For example, Paul defines worship this way: Continue reading

How can I Help my Bible Study Group know Scripture?

Is the Bible Without Error?

Bible Without ErrorWhat do they mean when someone asks is the Bible without error?  Most likely you’ve heard critics of the Bible claiming the Bible is full of errors and can’t be trusted. So, What is the inerrant (incapable of being wrong) word of God?

Maybe as a new Christian, you had doubts about the trustworthiness of the Bible. Such doubts are not only, natural, but they’re also good in a way. We should always test what people tell us about the way of salvation. Given all the false religions in the world, knowing that we can trust our Bible is no small matter. To understand the trustworthiness of scripture, we first need to define inerrancy. To say the Bible is inerrant, we mean it is free from error; it is completely truthful.

Romans 8 God called us and God Justified us

God called us and God Justified usGod Predestined us, God called us and God justified us.  We wait Patiently in Hope for our Resurrection. Nothing we face here on Earth is a threat to that Outcome.                   Romans 8 – Conclusion

 

Romans 8:28-30 (NKJV)

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

So as you reach verse 28, you come to understand that as we wait patiently in hope for our resurrection, nothing we face here on Earth is a threat to that outcome. Nothing! Life can be hard, you will have trials, the enemy will bear down on you in his own way as he has an opportunity. But none of that comes between you and God. Nothing can frustrate your hope, nothing has the power to stop the good that God is intending to bring. Continue reading
