It is imperative that we know the truth so we can recognize the lies of the devil. We must become so familiar with the Bible that we instantly recognize when something doesn’t line up with the truth of Scripture.
A gate hinge "points" toward what you will open. Will you point your hinge toward doubt and disappointment or toward opening the door to God's promises?
The Apostle Paul's accounts of his conversion give us a pattern we can use when sharing our own testimony.
Upon their first meeting, Jesus praised Nathanael's character because the Lord had seen him earlier. How do we want Jesus to see us? ~John 1:47-48
When we quote verses from the Bible... When we speak the truths found in Scripture... When we pray the prayers recorded in the Gospels, we bring the very presence of Jesus to bear on the situation.
