Allen Domelle

2 Timothy 2:2
“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”

The Christian’s responsibility is to bear fruit. Jesus says in John 15:8, “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.” You will never be a good Christian until you have fruit that remains.

Allen Domelle

Philemon 1:6
“That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”

Communicating is the imparting of thoughts, opinions, or information to another person. Communicating is giving our thoughts or opinions in such a manner that the person listening or reading understands what we are saying.

Allen Domelle

Hebrews 11:1
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Everything has a byproduct or a result of doing something. For instance, charcoal is the byproduct of Henry Ford using wood to make parts for cars.

Allen Domelle

James 2:1
“My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.”

You will never be used greatly by the LORD until you learn how to treat others properly. You can be the most talented person, but your talent will be wasted if you don’t treat others properly.

Allen Domelle

1 John 4:20-21
“If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.”

Many people have asked me over and over again, “How can I love God?”

Allen Domelle

Jude 1:15
“To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

Every Christian should desire to avoid ungodly acts.

Allen Domelle

Proverbs 25:4
“Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.”

Silver can be hidden in dross, and its value will never be discovered without removing the dross that covers it. It doesn’t matter how valuable the silver may be; it is worthless when covered with dross.

Allen Domelle

Genesis 1:31
“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

Mankind is in a constant search for fulfillment. Scores of books have been written to show people how to be fulfilled in life. Seminars are conducted to help people reach fulfillment. Yet, when man has followed all the advice of man, they still find themselves in search of fulfillment.

Allen Domelle

Genesis 12:4
“So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.”

Abram’s faith is a faith that every Christian should emulate.

Allen Domelle

Genesis 24:27
“And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master’s brethren.”

There is a reason why the servant of Abraham was successful in his journey to find a wife for Isaac.

Allen Domelle 

Philippians 2:21
“For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.”

Your agenda does matter. Why you do something and for whom you are doing it matters to God. Paul said, “For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.”

Allen Domelle 

Ephesians 3:19
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”

We often hear about the importance being filled with the Spirit of God, but rarely, if ever, do we hear about the importance of being filled with the “fullness of God.” If a Christian is filled with God, they would be totally influenced by God-like qualities. The word “fullness” means to be so filled that there is no place vacant.

Allen Domelle 

1 Timothy 1:8
“But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;”

In Paul’s discourse with Timothy, he talked about those who had “swerved” from the faith. These disobedient people had gotten caught up “fables and endless genealogies” instead of “godly edifying which is in faith.” Paul made it clear to Timothy that the “law is good.” He revealed that the only reason they didn’t like the law was because they were the ones breaking it. He showed how those who lived according to the Scriptures had no problem with living a holy life that is separated from the world.

Allen Domelle 

1 Thessalonians 4:3
“For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:”

If you have ever driven on snowy or icy roads, you understand the importance of staying in control. It doesn’t take much to get out of control and to find yourself sliding along the ice towards a dangerous end. The key to staying in control is to drive under control. The key is not to be overconfident in your ability, but to be cautious and to obey the laws.

Allen Domelle 

2 Corinthians 13:1
“This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.”

The verse above would solve most rumors and disagreements among individuals if its wisdom was followed. Paul said, “In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.” Paul understood the frustration of being falsely accused. He not only understood the frustration, but he had also felt the punishment from those who didn’t do their job to find out the whole story before they came to a conclusion.

Allen Domelle 

2 Timothy 2:2
“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”

The Christian’s responsibility is to bear fruit. Jesus says in John 15:8, “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.” You will never be a good Christian until you have fruit that remains.

Allen Domelle 

Acts 12:11
“And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.”

Have you ever had one of those moments in your life when it was like somebody turned the light on and for the first time you clearly saw what was so obvious? If you have ever had one of those moments, it was as if you woke up to see the reality that many others had already seen. Life and our own agenda can sometimes blind us from what we need to see. According to scriptural illustrations, there are three times when you need to wake up.

Allen Domelle 

John 16:12
“I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.”

Have you ever read a book that had so much information that when you read it again you saw things that you previously didn’t see? That is exactly what the Word of God will do for the believer if they will continue to read it daily. There have been scores of times when the Holy Spirit pointed out a truth from His Word that I had never seen before, even though I had read that verse hundreds of times.

Allen Domelle 

Romans 1:1
“Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,”

Many people will separate themselves from many things because of something they want to do. An athlete will stop eating certain foods because they want to perform at their peak ability. A young couple will separate from friends because they love each other and want to get married. In both of these instances, the purpose of separating was so that they could do something better.

Allen Domelle 

1 Corinthians 9:18
“What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.”

Power and position is a privilege, not a right. The Apostle Paul totally understood this principle when he said, “…I abuse not my power in the gospel.” He understood why he had the power he had, and he understood Who gave him this power. Paul’s desire was always to keep his power and position in proper perspective.

Allen Domelle

Romans 9:20
“Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?”

There is a misconception among many that it is okay to question God as to why He is allowing something in your life. I have heard people say that God doesn’t mind a Christian asking Him, “Why?”. Those who say this and believe this say that God understands our weakness, which He does, so that makes it okay to question the providence of God.

1 Corinthians 7:16
“For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?”

What does a person do when they are married to someone who is not saved? That is one of the lessons that God is teaching in this chapter. God would later deal with a saved person getting married to an unsaved person, but He had to deal with people who were in a mixed marriage. God knew that there would be many times when a person who was already married would get saved, but their spouse is still lost.
