Salvation or Condemnation “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”- Mark 16:16 Even the most diligent followers of Christ fail at times to believe His Word, as we see in the case of the original disciples (Mark 16:9–13). Yet our gracious Lord does not view that sin as disqualifying us from serving Him, provided, of course, that we repent of our doubt and ask Him to help our unbelief (see 9:24). We...

‘Authenticity’ by John Mason | Aug 21, 2019 | Word on Wednesday | 0 comments Because today’s western society insists there is no absolute truth, it follows that there is no agreed norm to guide human behavior.

What to renounce But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty. 2 Cor. 4:2. Have you “renounced the hidden things of dishonesty”—the things that your sense of honour will not allow to come to the light? You can easily hide them. Is there a thought in your heart about anyone which you would not like to be dragged into the light?

For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 5:10 The 5th chapter of Romans is the chapter of the five “much mores,” and is well worth considering. For example, verse 10 is full of hope and encouragement for the timid believer.
