JANUARY 21, 2015—THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE—John 8:32

Today there is a frantic cry for freedom in almost every area of our society. Workers want a shorter work week in order to have more free time, wives want to be free from their husbands to pursue their own goals and even choose abortion over life, politicians attempt to free people from all inequality through education, welfare and other government programs, gays want freedom to choose lifestyles, young people want to be free from their parents, and journalists […]

JANUARY 20, 2015—REASONABLE SERVICE—Rom. 12:1

The verse that describes “our reasonable service” explains that we achieve that by presenting our bodies as a living sacrifice. “I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service”. As we observe many Christians around us we see that the sacrifice they make is an occasional prayer, church attendance, and perhaps a good deed now and then but they certainly […]

JANUARY 19, 2015—HEART, PERFECT TOWARD GOD—2 Cron. 16:9

The clock of time points to the eleventh hour and God is looking for men who will commit themselves completely to Him; For His power can only be demonstrated through those who trust Him. He is looking for men who will stand in the gap, pray without ceasing, intercede on behalf of others, come boldly to the throne and proclaim the truth at the expense of their own well being and popularity. George Mueller was such a man […]

JANUARY 18. 2015—BLESSED ARE THEY THAT MOURN—Matthew 5:4

For the follower of Christ, there is hope when there is no possibility of escape. There is redemption for those lost in sin and there are blessings waiting for those who mourn. These are not just remote possibilities but promises of God for those who believe. They apply to all circumstances in this life and the next. No one has stated it better than F. B. Meyer.

“The condition of life that men actually dread is […]

JANUARY 16, 2015—WHERE WAST THOU?—Job 38:4

Not so many years ago a young man returned from war and like many before him, he struggled with questions that have often been uttered, ”If God is Love why are there wars, murders, rapes and all the rest?” He was very serious about these questions and had spent several evenings and most of this night reading his Bible and crying out to God for answers. As he put down the Book and was meditating on these thoughts […]

JANUARY 15, 2014—I WILL AFFLICT THEE NO MORE—Nahum 1:12

Time after time in the Old Testament God’s people strayed from Him and fell into sin and idolatry and for that reason the Lord allowed them to be afflicted by nations around them. During the prophet Nahum’s life (700 B. C.)it was no different. The most powerful nation in the world, Assyria, had been afflicting God’s people for many years but finally crossed the line and Nahum declared that Assyria would be destroyed. Within 50 years the Babylonians so […]

JANUARY 14, 2014—BE STILL AND KNOW—Ps.46:10

As a man comes closer to the Lord, the God of all creation, he will invariably find that he must learn stillness which is the absence of motion or noise. Great men of God throughout history spent hours alone with God. Whereas God is capable of talking to His children in the rush of modern life, His voice and directions are not as clear and sure as they could be. “Be still and know that I am God”.

There has […]

JANUARY 13, 2014—TRADITION—Mark 7; 9,13

We have all heard the story of the little boy who put his hand in a jar to obtain a piece of candy, but then, to his surprise, could not get his hand back out. In somewhat of a panic he went to his father and explained the problem. His father, very calmly, told him to open his hand and stretch his fingers out. But the boy exclaimed that he could not do that because he wanted the candy. […]

JANUARY 12, 2014—SOUL LIFE—Heb. 4:12, 13

The most common error in Christianity today is that those professing the true faith mistakenly live by the leading of the soul and think that they are following the Spirit. Man was created a living soul, consisting of the mind, will and emotion. It’s the part that allows man the choice to decide which way he will go, toward the flesh and the desires of the world or to follow the Holy Spirit of God. The problem for […]

JANUARY 8, 2015—LIFE PURPOSE—John 18:37

Mark Twain said, “The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you figure out why.” This question is infinitely more important for the Christian than for the rest of the world. God created each of us with a purpose; to go through life not knowing what that purpose is would be an enormous tragedy. Jesus came into the world (as recorded in the key verse) “to bear witness unto […]
