Read: Romans 8:2

The freedom that Jesus offers (John 8:32, 36) is not an unworkable optimism, but a most wonderful and powerful experience in every genuine believer. In our text, the apostle Paul describes Christian freedom as a powerful and enduring operation of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers.

The word “law” here indicates the governing influence or operation of the Spirit. The Spirit is also characterised as “the Spirit of life”, that is, the life-giving Spirit. Jesus said in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit...

Read: James 1:13b

Though our trials are permitted by God, He is not the author of the temptation of sin that may come simultaneously with those trials. No temptation of sin is designed or discharged by God. As James says, “for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man”.

God will never cajole and coax us to sin. God will never influence us to sin by infusing evil thoughts, inclinations, or desires. Nothing God does is evil; His ways with His people will never lead them to sin. The tempter is the devil ...

Read: 1 John 2:17

The world is passing away. Its passing is depicted here as an ongoing process. Nothing in this world is permanent and sure. Our experience on earth is one of constant uncertainty and ruin. So Jesus cautioned us in Matthew 6:19, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal”. No reasonable person would lay up treasure where moth and rust destroy and thieves break through and steal, would he...

Read: Philippians 3:14

Paul’s Christian life was characterized by an unstoppable zeal for Christ. He did not want to be weighed down by his past experiences or distracted by the present issues. This he testified in the preceding verse, “but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before...

Read: James 1:22

There are two sorts of hearers in the church, according to James. Though all the worshippers appear to be listening to a sermon, only some of them truly receive and apply it to their lives. The rest, though they appear to have paid attention to what is being preached, do not seem to bring their lives into subjection to the Word preached faithfully...

Read: Philippians 2:15a

Herein is God’s expectation of how His children ought to be in this world of sin and violence. There must be a marked difference in their conduct from that of the unregenerate people of this world. Christians ought to shine as lights in this dark world; that would be possible if and only if they are what the Spirit of God urges them to be in today’s text...


Romans 12:2a

Read: Romans 12:2a

Having exhorted Christians in the previous verse to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service”, the apostle now urges them not to conform to the world. In other words, if Christians desire to please God, they must not be worldly. It is impossible to serve the Lord in a holy and acceptable manner, if one is conformed to the world...


Psalm 37:5

Read: Psalm 37:5

Life is a journey that we should never take without the LORD. Our journeys must be with Him. We must begin our journeys with Him, continue with Him, and end with Him. The whole course of our life must be committed to the LORD.

All the affairs or businesses of life must be committed to the LORD in prayer. All of them must be considered only if they are in accordance with His Word. If His Spirit and His Word prohibit us, let us not travel that path. Let us stay with Him...

Read: 1 Corinthians 10:13b

When God’s children are faced with temptations and trials, they can be assured that God is faithful to them. This is the greatest and the best source of help and safety that they can have in such times of despair. In Psalm 89:33, the Lord says, “Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.” God’s faithfulness to His people is flawless and abiding...

Read: Ephesians 6:15

The third piece of armour that God has given to Christians for their spiritual battle is very crucial: the shoes of the Gospel of peace.

A Roman soldier would not go to battle wearing ordinary shoes with slick or worn-out soles. If he did, he would not get a firm foothold while marching through various kinds of ground. Roman soldiers were equipped with shoes that would last for long journeys, for they would often march over vast expanses of rugged terrain. Many battles had been lost just because soldiers were not fitted with shoes that were thick and durable enough...
