Is the carnal mind our greatest enemy?

The carnal mind has one primary objective (maintain control) and one primary method for achieving it (deception). One of its greatest and necessary deceptions is its passivity, even to the point of apparent non-existence. The carnal mind works diligently to remain undetected. Satan and the world use our carnal mind to inhibit our relationship with […]

The carnal mind’s resistance of the truth

There is, I believe, a process the mind must go through to fully comprehend the Word of God. At some point in our lives – perhaps what we call the age of accountability – every student of God’s Word becomes responsible for navigating this process. Buy the truth, and do not sell it, Also wisdom […]

Our Best Weapons are Not Carnal

As it is with many who will read this article, God is working graciously and persistently to prepare me for the opportunities this pandemic will create – opportunities to advance His kingdom and hasten the day of His Son’s return. I pray the following will both encourage and edify you in your participation in the […]

Set Your Mind for Chaos

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3:1-3 Knowing God is sovereign, we can […]

These Sayings of Mine – Seek the Kingdom of God (Part 2)

The kingdom we seek will not be found haphazardly, for it is on the other side of the narrow gate and down the difficult way. Very often, our greatest struggles become God’s most glorious victories. Work it out; trust that He is working in us to will and to do to His good pleasure, to give us the very thing we are seeking: His kingdom.

These Sayings of Mine – Seek the Kingdom of God (Part 1)

It occurs to me that this saying of Jesus’ must have been one of those He used to test His disciples and thin the crowds. In many respects, it is the core message of His Sermon on the Mount.

These Sayings of Mine – Lay Up Treasures in Heaven (Part 3)

One of the greatest inhibitors to our hearing and doing this saying is our lack of faith and perspective for eternity. Let’s face it: Most of us spend the greater part of our lives laying up wealth so we can enjoy the last feeble portion of our seventy or eighty years here on earth. We are so focused on investing for retirement that we fail to lay up for that portion of our life that is immeasurable in its duration.

These Sayings of Mine – Lay Up Treasures in Heaven (Part 1)

This saying is particularly hard to hear for those in the church that are tempted – and even presently deceived – by the American Dream. Consequently, I am concerned that I may lose a few of you on this one. So, before you turn away, let me encourage you: We are all in process; and our heavenly Father is sensitive to our place in the race.
