13 “No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money."
14 The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all these things, and they ridiculed him.
15 And he said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

16 Rejoice always,
17 pray without ceasing,
18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
These three verses are to be read as one unified statement.
Nowhere is worship made manifest more than in prayer. Prayer according to His will, i.e. Word (1 John 5:14-15) is as much, if not more so, an expression of our worship/obedience, as singing a song, or lifting hands.
The will of God is that we offer joyful,…

ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS David Stevens
When you first enter the army, one of the first things that you learn is how to march. Everywhere you go on a military base, you see soldiers marching. It looks so easy and orderly that you don’t think much about it at first. Everyone is moving perfectly synchronized. No one individual stands out. It’s almost as if all the soldiers are bonded together into one fine tuned machine working as one.

21 And he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."
22 In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong.
9 Then his wife said to him, "Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die."
10 But he said to her, "You speak as one of the…

Hebrews 7:19 (for the law made nothing perfect); but on the other hand, a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.
The apostle Paul was accused of being antinomian (Romans 3:8) by those described in Galatians 6:12-13.
So how does the Law apply in God’s plan of salvation in and through Christ alone?
First and foremost, salvation is given solely to those whom God has chosen (election) in Christ before creation.
3 Blessed be the God…

15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.
16 But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.
Paul is always straightforward in his presentation. He never stepped over the line in terms of the pious blether that has…
