Heavenly vs Demonic

by Linda Sasso

The Biggest Troublemaker in the Church

by Linda Sasso

I once heard a story of a preacher who told his congregation that on the following Sunday, he was going to expose the biggest troublemaker in the church.

A Test for True Faith

by Linda Sasso

Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?

When it comes to doubt, trials, and temptation, what we need is wisdom. In today’s text, James gives us godly advice concerning this matter… If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your […]

The Testing of Your Faith

“JAMES, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, sends greeting to the twelve dispersed tribes. When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives, my brothers, don’t resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends! Realize that they come to test your faith and to produce in you the […]

The SHOUTS of an Apostle

by Linda Sasso

Whenever we want to raise our voice in a text or email we put the cap lock on and begin to type in ALL CAPS. It seems as the Apostle Paul has done all that he can and used every logical argument to persuade the Galatian Christians not to fall for the lie of spiritual legalism, so he […]
