{Reading 17 New Testament Books In 17 Weeks!}

How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of
the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the
seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the Law of the Lord, and on His Law, he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its
fruit in season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3

Bible Study: Is very important for the believer but reading through it in context is just as important. Join CTTTruth as we read 17 New Testament Books in 17 Weeks.

Have you been in a bible Study class and it is going to end for the summer? Have you been doing my Romans Study and are waiting for Part two to come out? Be looking for it in August of 2016! The class that meets in my home takes a break over the summer. We have found it difficult to study through the summer, although we have given it a good try. Vacations, gardening… seem to crowd out our study time! I am not advocating not studying! Heavens no! I would not be a good teacher if I told you not to study:) However I do believe reading our Bible is as important as our study time. Continue reading

{Would You Like to Know Where Your Mind is Taking You?}

Do you ever stop and think about where you are going? Where is your mind taking you? Would you like to know the answer to these question? Follow CTTT as we study Romans 8:5-11. The answers are just a few words away!What is the mark of a true believer? Do you ever ask yourself this question? If you ask yourself this question where do you go to find the answer? Today we will look at Romans 8:5-11 to answer the question, “what is the mark of a true believer?” Looking at Romans 8:5-11 also answers the third question, “where do I go to find out what a true believer looks like?” The answer, the Word of God. I also want to add the Word of God is the only reliable place we can get our information. God has graciously and with a warning gave us everything we need to know.  We are without excuse. Placed between Paul’s worship of Christ and His setting the believer  free from their condemnation of sin he briefly stops to give  a picture of a true believer and an unbeliever. Continue reading

{The Requirements of the Law Are Fulfilled in Christ!}

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The requirements of the Law are fulfilled in Christ! Join CTTT as we do a Bible Study in Romans 8 and learn this marvelous truth. O, go and tell someone this truth!Do you not know? Have you not heard? God did it! God sent His One and only Son in the likeness of sinful flesh as an offering for sin. Why did He do this? We read in Romans chapters 1-3 that men do not fear Him, they do not honor Him, and they exchanged His incorruptible glory for an image that is corruptible. {The man that Romans speaks of is me, and all humanity.} This man made image  will fade away but the God who always was, will always be! The God of heaven and earth, who man rejected, sent His Son to die for our sins and to accomplish in us what the Law could not do. Continue reading

{Is Your Heart Recieving Encouragement In The Grip of Grace?}

I am at Satisfaction Through Christ today sharing about the  encouragement God gives in the midst of our discipline!

Do you receive encouragement when God has you in His grip? The Bible teaches that there is Joy in the our transformation.I had just gotten off of the phone with my niece Lizzy! She and her new husband are going to be traveling from Mississippi to watch my daughter Hannah in her first play! We were working out the details of the trip. Because Lizzy is one if not the biggest encourager I have when it comes to my blog I shared with her the humbling opportunity that God has given to me to be a contributing author to “Satisfaction In Christ Alone!” She has helped me beyond what I could ever hope for. She knows what she is doing in this techy world. I, on the other hand, fly by the seat of my pants hoping I am getting it right! As is usual of Lizzy she was so uplifting, encouraging and excited for this opportunity that had come my way! Don’t you love an encourager? Continue reading

{Did You Know Death is Worthy of Celebrating?}

I do not normally celebrate a death. How about you? But according to the Bible there is great reason to celebrate our death. Please join Conforming To The truth as we study inductively through Romans. Print your Free Bible study today.As I was reading through Romans 6:1-11  in preparation for this post, I noticed the words die, death, died and dead appeared  in 9 of the eleven verses. I could not help myself, I had to count them! I found these words, collectively, recorded {for us} 18 times! We know that when a writer repeats a word  in Scripture he is trying to teach us something.  I do believe that God through the Spirit is flashing a bright light right before our eyes trying to get our attention. It has my attention, what about you? Continue reading
