May 6, 2016

Although every Christian is not the same in ability, we are equal in our obligation to use our abilities wisely. In Bible times, a talent was a large sum of money. The parable of the talents shows us how to manage what we’ve got – our abilities and our money.

We are all given gifts and abilities. It’s not how many we’ve got but how we use them that shapes the outcome of our lives. Rather than complain about what we don’t have, let’s focus on how to best use what we’ve been given.

As believers, how we use our time determines our effectiveness for God. At the end of this life, we will be judged on our deeds. As the clock ticks off the minutes, days, and years of your life, are you ready to be evaluated by God Himself?

For the Christian, time is a vital, non-renewable resource. It can only be spent once; we don’t get a second chance at it. Why not invest the next fifteen minutes, learning how to best use your time?

Psalm 116:15 says, “Blessed in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” Multitudes of believers have given their lives for the faith. Are we ready to do the same? We must be prepared.

What kind of legacy will you and I leave behind? The Apostle Paul left a legacy of faithfulness to Christ to the very end. He died as a martyr in Rome. But how should we as Christians face death today?
April 28, 2016
Many early Christians met death as martyrs for the faith. Even now, ISIS is killing many in the Middle East. The day may come when American believers face the same fate. So we must work now to develop the right attitude toward dying for Christ.

The word “witness” in Greek is the word known in English as “martyr.” In the early church, dying for Christ went hand in hand with being His witness. The Apostle Paul went to his death in Rome sealing that witness with his blood.

Human slavery has existed throughout history. But where the gospel has been embraced, slavery has faded away. The New Testament has something to say about this practice, which was common throughout the Roman Empire.
April 25, 2016
In Roman times, slaves made up over half the population. Paul wrote about one of these slaves while in prison. Let’s learn from Paul’s admonition to the owner of Onesimus, a man named Philemon.
