{God is Not “Trying”~He is “Doing”}

 

Do you find yourself saying things about God that are not true? Me too! Our God does, He is not trying.I am writing this post because while God is doing His sanctifying work in me I find myself referring to God in ways that do not lift Him up. The words I sometimes use do not bring Him glory and honor, nor do they reflect a heart that fears Him. I write this with much humility and with a heart that wants to exalt The One and only True God and  to help you and me understand how we should honor God with our words.I was scrolling through Facebook today, I came across a picture and this is what it said, Continue reading

{4 Reasons You need to be Prepared for Bible Study}

Have you ever thought about how important it is to be prepared for Bible Study? In this post I give 4 reasons it is important to be prepared.There are so many of us that attend  Bible Study classes!

But the greatest joy for me is the time I spend studying because I am in the word reading, marking, praying over God’s word, asking God questions and learning from Him. Continue reading

Show Me That in Scripture… Please!

I am Satisfaction through Christ today sharing about how believers need to be in the word of God so that we are NOT led astray!

Have you ever had to say to someone, " Show me that in Scripture ...Please" I have, I was grateful I had the word hidden in my heart. Here are 4 ways to protect your heart and mind from being led astray!I have had several opportunities over the last several years to lead Bible study classes. I now hold one in my home.

Any teacher, whether it be a school teacher, a Sunday school teacher, a homeschooling mom, or a Bible study teacher always love a teaching moment.I have had several of those moments over the years but one in particular always stands out in my mind. I was leading a group of High School students through a study in the book of Titus. Continue reading

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

Have you ever wondered who that man could be that Paul describes in Romans 7? Join CTTT as we do a Bible Study in Romans. Free workbook available for you!Have you ever heard someone who claims to be a believer say, “I do not sin.” Before I say anything about this statement lets go to the Bible and see what it has to say.

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. if we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:8-10
