Ever the Same

“And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art […]

Joy

            “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full” (John 15:10-11).             Joy is the inner sense of well-being. It […]

The Good Shepherd

          “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep” (John 10:11-12).             The good Shepherd would […]

Teach Us to Pray

            The soul of every man desires to reach out to his Maker. The extent of man’s fall is revealed by the fact that we need help even to reach out to God. The extent of God’s love is revealed by His reaching down to us, stimulating within us that desire for Him.             We cannot be […]

Forgiveness is the blotting out of sin. The only way we can become reconciled to our Creator is through His mercy and forgiveness.             We […]

The Need and Value of Bible Study

You would hardly call a man a scientist whose only knowledge of a field consisted of having met Einstein at one time. Nor would you call a woman a seamstress who owned a sewing machine but never used it.Yet too many “Christians” are people who have made a fleeting acquaintance with the Lord. Their religion […]

A Lively Hope

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Pet. 1:3).Hope fills a different place, in the heart of the Christian, than faith. Faith is the unquestioning belief in […]

Destiny

“Enter ye at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way , which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matt. 7:13-14).At life’s conception, destiny […]

Freedom

“If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31,32). “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (v.36). A disciple of Christ is one who lives in His Word. We cannot separate […]
