Peaceful, Not Passive

God will never leave a believer to face a difficulty without comfort, instruction and a promise. Whether or not a believer remains calm in a situation is actually a matter of choice – he must decide to be quiet, listen, wait, and then obey. That is why it is so...

Provisional Reality

Although we possess human personality and the depraved, fallen, human nature, we are to follow Christ’s example; God is to be our source of life, not the “self.” Christ provided for the nullification of self through our co crucifixion with Him.

The Word and Right Decisions

There is such a value in studying the Word of God. When a believer studies diligently, he develops a great capacity for right decisions in the volition of his soul. He has accurate information from God’s mind and this produces clear definition for proper decisions. This causes the believer to...
