A Daily Study in the Scriptures with Pastor Ray Viola

Weekdays at 6:30 PM on WZXV - The Word

Paul’s Defense And God’s Promises

In 2 Corinthians 1:12-24 we read the beginning of Paul's defense against those who questioned his character and ministry. Due to changes in his travel plans, there were individuals (whom Paul later called, “false brethren” – 2 Corinthians 11:26) who began to poison...

What Is Exhortation?

The Biblical admonition to exhort one another cannot be described with a “one-size-fits-all” definition. It is a word that is defined by the context of when it is used. For an individual who is reeling under the cloud of despondency, it will take the form of being...

How can we have a godly marriage?

The Miracle Of Marriage

Our marriage is designed to be prototypical of the relationship between Jesus Christ and His bride the church (Ephesians 5:22-32). It is both a mystery and a miracle. When Jesus miraculously turned the water into wine at the wedding feast of Cana, the Bible says that...

Marriage Is Not Magic

I get the idea from listening to some couples that they really believe that a good marriage “just happens.” Say your vows, go on a honeymoon, and then “poof!”, out comes this fruitful marriage without any work or effort at all. According to Scripture, nothing could be...

The Role Of The Husband

Today we move on in our marriage study to the role of the husband (Ephesians 5:25-33; Colossians 3:19; 1 Peter 3:7). Due to the spiritual declension that has gripped our nation over the past 50 years, we are living at a time when the biblical role model for a...

The Truly Liberated Woman

Now the title of this devotion is like stepping on a landmine. I mean, how in the world can a 60 year old grandfather know what it means to be a liberated woman? Well ladies, I could not agree with you more. But, what I am about to share with you this morning are not...

The “S” Word

As we look into “The Master’s Plan” for marriage, we are going to comment on the passage that leads into the subject of marriage, “submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” (Ephesians 5:21) Many people curl up into a proverbial ball when they hear the...
