SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY James 5:9 “Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.” COMMENTARY “Grudge”, in the verse above, means to murmur. God does not like murmuring. He does not like anyone holding a grudge either. He says, when you come to the altar, forgive others first, and then come to the altar. James pictured Christ as a judge about to open the doors to the courtroom and convene His court. Knowing that the strain of persecution could lead to… Read more SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY →

SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” Hebrews 12:14 COMMENTARY HOLINESS: This is not referring to any particular denomination or church.

SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 No one ever said that the Christian life would be easy. In fact, Jesus Himself promises His disciples a life of cross bearing and suffering now, though including some joys, and eternal blessing later (Matt. 16:24–28; Mark 10:29–31).

Not necessarily, but we know it CAN happen if God chooses to do it to glorify himself, or accomplish his will. Our commitment needs to be that of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego who basically told King Nebuchadnezzar, “We serve a God who is able to deliver us, but even if he does not, we will not worship other gods who are false!” Daniel 3:16-18 HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
Q & A. Does predestination and election mean that some people cannot be saved? ANSWER: Sad to say, that it is often taught that God elects some and not others to be saved. This is not what the two words election and predestination means, and this is not what the bible teaches. They are both good Bible words.
