Believers are motivated by love

“I defy anyone to find a solitary text of Scripture in the New Testament that uses the law to motivate, inspire, regulate, or even guide the believer. Believers are motivated by love, inspired by gratitude, regulated by grace, and guided by the Holy Spirit. The whole Word of God, the complete revelation of His will, [...]

Taking Out the Trash Darvin Pruitt In Philippians 3 the apostle Paul talks about men and women who look to the flesh to find a confidence and assurance of a relationship with God.

The Heart and The Mouth Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

God’s People Are a Broken People “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit” (Psalm 34:18). A broken heart, a contrite spirit and a subdued will are rare things. In this day of human rights, everyone extols the imaginary dignity of man, [...]
