Agape love is the steadfast desire and purpose of the will for another’s highest good.

Scripture References: John 3:16 Hosea 3 Hosea 14:4 Matthew 22:39 Colossians 3:12-14 2 Corinthians 13:11 Galatians …
 
When people talk about love, words like passion, romance, desire, and sex are generally used in conversation. What they are describing though is one form of love - Eros. Eros is more than just sexual love. Rather, think of Eros as a disposition of the heart that fuels the desire toward the recipient of your affection. It is Eros that liberates you …
 
Phileo love is brotherly love. It refers to affectionate, warm, tender platonic love. It fuels the desire for friendship with someone on a deeper level. Scripture References: 1 Samuel 18:1, 3 John 11 John 21:15-17 1 Peter 1:22 1 Peter 3:8 "Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself… It has no survival value; rath…

It should be our utmost desire to love the Lord who, according to Rom. 8:32, did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all.

What is an ambassador? An ambassador represents and communicates the desires and will of the head of state they represent. Whether its a president, king, queen, emperor or dictator. We also are called to represent the government of our sovereign King and Lord Jesus. As Christians, we do not only proclaim the desires and will of Christ to others but…
 
A warrior would not be a warrior without a weapon. Just as a teacher is not a teacher without students, and a chef is not a chef without food to prepare. It's foolish and dangerous to enter into combat with just armor and a shield. These are purely protective defensive components. It's the weapon that provides the ability to take the fight to the e…
 
This shield that Paul’s comparison speaks about was not a small disc but a large, body-length shield called a scuta [skyoo-tah], these were large rectangular shields used by the foot soldiers of the Roman Empire to great effect. Their concave nature offered substantial protection allowing a Roman soldier to shelter his entire body. The Roman soldie…
 
We need daily to place our identity in Christ and rely upon His works, not our own works lest we fall into the trap of thinking of ourselves more highly than we ought to, and remember that without Jesus we have no armor to protect us, we have no reconciliation with God and we have no hope for salvation. The gospel of peace outfitted on our feet als…
 
Without unyielding devotion and acceptance of the truth—God's truth—the truth found in all 66 books of the Bible, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 you will be walking in your faith with an unbuckled belt, distracted by the other pieces of armor fluttering and swinging around unsecured rather than being protected by them. "Where I found truth, t…
 
Our righteousness is not from anything we produce. It is through the perfect works of Christ. Our sin was imputed to Him and His righteousness imputed onto us through his crucifixion and resurrection. So, righteousness begins and ends with God. It is not something we can summon up ourselves. Ephesians 6:14(b) and having put on the breastplate (θώρ…
 
The mind is the active manifestation of the soul to the brain, meaning, if your thoughts are corrupt and wicked then you will bring forth corruption and wickedness. The helmet of salvation defends your mind from the attacks of the adversary and equips you to achieve victory every day. Remember that the battle always happens in your mind before it h…
 
Throughout this series, we have examined the many disguises that anger may use to fuel itself to grievously sinful proportions. So how can we be angry but not sin? Part 6 is the series conclusion and examines anger that is commonly called "righteous indignation" - anger that is in alignment with what God says we should be angry about. Scripture Ref…
 
Contact Information The world has enough difficulties and pain to fill our remaining years, but what about the suffering Christian who isn’t just tormented by experiences from outside…but also from within? When we ignore regular scripture reading, when we disregard consistent prayer, when we concede to Self Hate we do the devil’s work for him. Scri…
 
Recognizing each of the faces of anger helps to not only dig at the roots of where it lays buried but it allows us to remove the fuel that enflames our anger to more damaging levels. Bitterness is a consequence of a heart that won’t forgive. As followers of Christ, this is where the rubber meets the road. It is the absence of forgiveness that prece…
 
"The angry man is a sad man. He is also a reckless man. But did you know the angry man is probably a scared man too? Most sinful anger is born out of insecurity. He is fearful he is not going to get what he wants, so he uses anger as a manipulative means to make sure his craving heart is satisfied. If you ever tried to rely on yourself rather than …
