What does it mean to be a spiritual person? Many can miss out on the blessings in Christ, even though they hold all the right Christian beliefs and values.
Jesus said, “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7:37-38). Why is it that so many Christians complain of thirst and emptiness when it comes to the Lord? Jesus spoke this about the Holy Spirit, and the Spirit had not yet been given. But now that Jesus has been glorified, and the Spirit was given at Pentecost, there shouldn’t be any excuse for being empty or powerless.
In fact, Peter spoke this way, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19; NKJV). There are times of refreshing, and if the Lord is present in your life, you too can be refreshed. There is no problem you are going through, no pain, no hell at home, that the Lord can’t be your refresher.

There are two different ways to speak about Jesus in this verse. One is a lie, and the […] Continue reading →
THE NEEDLE KEPT bouncing up and down. “That’s odd,” I thought, but continued to drive with confidence that we had enough fuel to get back to the city. I had never run out of gas before, and sometimes the needle went well below “E” before the next fill up. Now we were returning […] Continue reading →
