Holiness Revisited

Today we return to talk more about Holiness, particularlly in light of the books I have been reading, many of which have centered on the theological points of holiness. Can we know what holiness is or not? What does it mean?

Leviticus 11:44

 



Getting Lost to be Found | Daily Walk 178

The fallen world does not like sin. They do everything from normalizing it to legalizing it. They want to help people in their sin, and they deny it is sin. This poses a challenge for evangelism because the first step to being saved is to admit we are lost. As our world denies sin, the message of the Gospel gets dimmer. To be saved, we need to first become lost.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Galatians 5:16-21

 



Worship | Daily Walk 177

Worship means more than singing before the service. Jesus paints a picture of worship that includes the whole of our life. Here we talk about Jesus's statements on worship from John 4 and how true worship includes music, giving, hearing the message, prayer, and even living our life. Listen in for a discussion on Worship.
John 4:19-24

 



Responding to Enemies | Daily Walk 176

We don't find enemies any more pronounced than in American politics. This is not a political message, but rather, a message about dealing with enemies appropriately. Join us to see what the Bible has to say.

Matthew 5:43-48
Psalm 50:16-21
Psalm 35:22-26

 



Antinomianism and the Law | Daily Walk 175

Antinomianism, hypergrace, and easy-believism are all tied together and they are so integrated into the modern church that most people have never even heard the terms. Specifically we want to talk about antinomianism. This means "against the law", or that there is no principles we need to live as when we proclaim the grace of God. Listen in for an explanation.

Romans 5:18-6:4
Colossians 2:20-23
Colossians 3:5-10

 



Are You Deceived | Daily Walk 174

Today we look at some scripture examining the question: Are we really saved, or are we deceived? Matthew 7 gives us warnings about right faith. Follow along and ask if you are truly saved.

Matthew 7:13-14
Matthew 7:21-23
Matthew 7:24-27
James 1:27

 



Will God Find Faith in America | Daily Walk 173

As we approach an election, see riots in the streets, and sexual misconduct is everywhere from our most popular streaming service to the California house and senate. As God looks down on the earth, will He find faithful, righteous people, or will He find people who are groping at sin like the Sodomites? The answer to that question will likely help God to determine who leads this country next.
Genesis 18:16-33

 



Music as a Marker Church for Soundness | Daily Walk 172

Before we allow a church to speak into our life, we need to evaluate if it is sound. Today we talk about music as a marker for the soundness of the church. If we hear music that is about us, our problems, or making our life better, the focus of the church might be on people rather than God.

Philippians 4:8

 



Culture Sliding into Apostasy | Daily Walk 171

Today we will document the further slide into apostasy and look at one popular company that has been producing a lot of shows designed to push the envelope of immoral sexuality.

Reverence for the Word | Daily Walk 170

Our culture is really missing reverence. Things like comedy and parody have their place, but often times we fail to have reverence for God and His Word. Recently, Lifeway gave us a perfect example of how not to handle the Word. In the Gen Z Bible Devo, they tried to make the Bible relevant, but it failed.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
Isaiah 6:2

 



Signs of False Worship | Daily Walk 169

Today on our Daily Walk, we will talk about people who go to a sound church, but fail to let it impact their life. This is a fundamental part of false worship: listening in, but auditing the faith, not letting it transform you. Let this message from Ezekiel touch your heart.

Ezekiel 33:30-33
James 1:23-24
2 Timothy 4:3-4

 



The Christian Persecution | Daily Walk 168

The Christian Persecution in America is coming. On this daily walk, I talk about some of the things that have been going on in recent weeks that mean fewer religious freedoms for us as Christians. Will you take a stand, or will you be compliant?

Acts 4:13-22

 



MacArthur Opens Church | Daily Walk 167

After the governor of California shut down churches "indefinitely", John MacArthur opened Grace Community Church and issued a statement about his decision. We will discuss that today.

Be a Berean | Daily Walk 166

When we hear the pastor speak, are we accepting everything as Gospel truth or are we being a good Christian and examining the Scripture to see if what the pastor is saying is true? Any good pastor will encourage the congregation to test the Scriptures to see if their preaching is sound. This discussion is an exhortation to do just that.

Acts 17:10-11
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22

Better Online or In Person? | Daily Walk 165

Churches are being forced online, but if we had a choice, are we better off meeting online or better off meeting in person? I discuss my thoughts as I experience a church that is open, but a ministry that is not.

Hebrews 10:19-25
James 5:13-18

 



Kanye West: President or Publicity | Daily Walk 164

Today we will talk about Kanye West's bid for president. Is he really serious? More importantly, is he really a Christian? Today we will analyze this walk in Christ and his proposal for president.

1 Timothy 3:6
Hosea 6:6
Romans 13:4

 



Seek the Lord Now | Daily Walk 163

Seek the Lord TRULY now. Dedicate yourself to God and live like it to be a Gospel testimony to others around you. Do not be like the Israelites who did what they wanted and then ran to God when the troubles came.

-Hosea 6:1-3
-Hosea 6:4-6
-Isaiah 55:6
-Hebrews 2:2-3

 



Sin, Self Esteem, and Repentence | Daily Walk 162

Our world is obsessed with self esteem, but that is contrary to the start of salvation: repentance. We have to embrace sin in our life and call it what it is before we see the need for Christ. Once we see our need for Christ, we can accept His sacrifice.

-Matthew 21:8-11
-Matthew 27:19-23

 



BLM, Ancestry, and Worship | Daily Walk 160

As BLM becomes more vocal, we need to stand against racism, but without supporting the movement itself, which stands for a lot of things against scripture. Today, we talk about what we should and should not support in the current environment directly from the Scripture.
