Depression

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Depression

by Joshua Arnold

Depression is still something a Christian may sink into and suffer from. We are not freed from the possibility of it, as our souls are still wrapped in this corrupted flesh, and so we must be equipped to deal with it if we happen to ever find ourselves suffering in this way.

True Christianity

Here is something I read on Facebook.

True Christianity

by Joshua Arnold

Christianity is more than being right. It’s more than having correct doctrine. In addition to having correct doctrine, there should be a warmth that radiates from the heart of the Christian. And that warmth that radiates from the Christian is something that can be felt and experienced by the people that interact with them. Read the rest of this entry

Broken people

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Broken people

by Joshua Arnold

We are fallen people, and there is a lot of brokenness in us that the world can do nothing about and nothing with. There are things that are broken about each person that are of no advantage to a person in the world. The world will turn you away and shun you if certain things are off about you. You’ll become a throw-away in the world’s eyes, a misfit, an outcast, an example of what not to be like, all because they don’t know what to do with a brokenness like yours.

The victim mentality

Here is something I read on Facebook.

The victim mentality

by Joshua Arnold

The victim mentality is entirely unsuitable for Christians. It should be unthinkable to go on with life playing the victim card at every turn when we have such glorious promises from God that are completely to the contrary. This doesn’t mean we won’t be the victim of some wrong doing or disease or anything else, it just means that we have no business counting ourselves as helpless victims. Read the rest of this entry

Our wonderful savior

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Our wonderful savior

by Joshua Arnold

What a wonderful Savior we have in the risen Lord Jesus Christ.

He is a Savior who is humble and lowly in heart. He is an accessible Savior. He is most approachable. He is the most understanding person in the entire universe, and He understands His people’s weaknesses and struggles. His enemies got it right when they called Him a “friend of sinners” (Matthew 11:19). Jesus Christ is love itself clothed in flesh. Read the rest of this entry

How the world should see Christians

Here is something I read on Facebook.

How the world should see Christians

by Joshua Arnold

Only Jesus Christ can provide peace and rest during this time, with the world in the situation it’s in, and if Christians won’t boldly and gladly throw themselves upon the Lord for the whole world to see, then we should never expect anyone from the world to get the impression that we believe He is as sufficient, wonderful, gracious, and faithful as He truly is.

The Christian is different

Here is something I read on Facebook.

The Christian is different

by Joshua Arnold

The Christian is unlike any other person on the planet. They have had the most profound experience that any human being can possibly have in this fallen world. They have been born again (John 3:3), born from above, reconciled to God, given the Holy Spirit, new eyes to see, new ears to hear, a new heart to love God and His people, and they have been given eternal life because of Jesus Christ.

Marriage and sex

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Marriage and sex

by Joshua Arnold

We do not have God’s consent to have sex with someone outside of marriage, He does not approve of it in the slightest, no matter how much we believe we love and care about the other person. If we do love and care about a person like that, we are to first express it by making a life long covenant with them and marrying them, not by having sex with them. Read the rest of this entry

Faith the size of a mustard seed

by Joshua Arnold

Satan wishes to keep the children of God in a sad, and perplexed state, because he hates Christians, and cannot devour their faith, nor pluck them out of the hand of God. Read the rest of this entry

Godly marriage

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Godly marriage

by Joshua Arnold

No woman will make a good godly wife if she is proud, and wishes to take on the role of the husband, which is to lead as the head. And no man will make a good husband who does not take his role of being the head seriously, stirring the woman up to good works and love by giving her reasons to submit to him as the head by his godly speech and behavior.

Wallowing in sin

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Wallowing in sin

by Joshua Arnold

I can’t count how many Christians fall into sin and sit and wallow in it miserably, and end up sinfully discouraging themselves in their walk, which stops them of their strength and puts them off of their Christian duties, simply because they limit the grace of God. They say they don’t limit His grace, but in moments they prove otherwise when they sink in total discouragement. There is this habit they have of putting themselves back under the Law in terms of being right with God, and they condemn themselves, forgetting that there is now no more condemnation for those in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).

Afflictions

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Afflictions

by Joshua Arnold

Many times the Lord will bring about afflictions on a person that last longer than what any natural motive, encouragement or comfort may provide for enduring that particular affliction.

Some people have a very tough and stubborn personality or natural disposition, and so they tend to endure afflictions longer and with greater courage and ease than most people do. Read the rest of this entry

Spiritual discernment

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Spiritual discernment

by Joshua Arnold

If your idea of spiritual discernment is some feeling in your heart or core of your being, a gut instinct, an impression on your mind, or any other type of sensation, then you must humbly be told that you are not qualified to discern a single spiritual matter until you put those lifeless and fallible methods away, and stand on the word of God alone as your foundation and ultimate interpreter of everything, completely relying on the power of the Holy Spirit to unfold the mysteries that would otherwise be hidden from us apart from the spiritual light that He gives to the eyes of our understanding.

Sound doctrine for women

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Sound doctrine for women

by Joshua Arnold

It is important that women learn sound doctrine and know how to rightly divide the Word of God, or else they will not be able to discern which man is fit to be the head of their family. Women aren’t being singled out here in order to take a jab at them. There are many, many bright and faithful Christian women who know their Bible and the God of their Bible, even more than plenty of Christian men do. Read the rest of this entry

Introverts

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Introverts

by Joshua Arnold

Introverted people have the tendency to spend too much time inwardly inspecting themselves, which tends to lead to a depressive state in their Christian walk.

We are meant to examine ourselves from time to time, periodically throughout the day, but not to the point that it is consuming our lives, and hindering our work and joy in the LORD. Read the rest of this entry

Roles of men and women

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Roles of men and women

by Joshua Arnold

Ever since the fall of humanity, women have been prone to take over the role of a man, and men have been prone to abuse their role, either by allowing the wife to rule over him, or by dominating the woman and ruling over her more like a tyrant than a respectable man. Just take a look at the world, and you’ll see plenty of both. Take a look at all the abusive relationships there are. Read the rest of this entry

Judging righteously

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Judging righteously

by Joshua Arnold

Christians do judge, and should judge, but they should do so righteously (John 7:24), which means to judge fairly according to the word of God. The righteous God has pronounced certain judgments on certain things, and we are to think God’s thoughts after Him. Read the rest of this entry

The body of Christ

Here is something I read on Facebook.

The body of Christ

by Joshua Arnold

When a person stubs their toe or cuts their foot, the entire body immediately does everything it can to come to the rescue. The knee immediately bends itself without hesitation, and both hands come to serve and comfort the foot without delay. The rest of the whole body forsakes its own concerns, and caters to the foot, even if other parts of the body have some minor wounds or injuries itself. Read the rest of this entry

A broken heart

Here is something I read on Facebook.

A broken heart

by Joshua Arnold

The broken-hearted man is a person who has had his heart broken by the word of God, and the word “broken” is to be understood in the same sense as it is understood when we speak of “broken bones”. Bones that are broken are disabled bones. They cannot do what they once did. Read the rest of this entry

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
