NOVEMBER 28, 2014—INTERTAINING ANGELS UNAWARES—Heb. 13:2

Throughout history angels have ministered to true believers when there has been no other help available or when a particular message from the Lord needed to be delivered. The list is in the hundreds of these accounts in Scripture from Abraham in Genesis to the apostle John on the isle of Patmos. For that reason Paul instructs us not to forget our duty of hospitality to others.(Hebrews 13: 2) The Christian who disciplines himself to be […]

NOVEMBER 27, 2014—THANKFUL—1 Thes. 5:18

All across our country families are gathering for a wonderful turkey meal and many are expressing what they are thankful for in the past and it is important that we take occasion to reflect on the blessings of life. The Bible says two things about thankfulness; First, we should be thankful always and, second, for all things He allows to come into our life. This is sometimes difficult to do but for those who thank Him for all things […]

SERVICE AND HUMILITY—Gal 6:2

Humility is one of those virtues that is never gained by seeking itself. The more we pursue it the more distant it becomes and to think we have it is sure evidence that we don’t. Many of us pray and periodically ask for humility as we travel the Christian way, realizing the need for it, but lo, it doesn’t come and eventually we accept that lack…or perfect acting like we are humble. Finally, most of us assume […]

NOVEMBER 25, 2014—JOY AND TEARS—Nehemiah 8:10

The Joy of the Lord is sometimes a very confusing thing to even to those committed Christians who have experienced it. It is not the same as happiness. In fact the Joy of the Lord can be present in the saddest of circumstances. Happiness comes with happy circumstances while joy of the Lord resides deep in our being and is a confidence in the Lord that He will deliver, comfort, or use the circumstances for His own glory and […]

NOVEMBER 22, 2014—WE ARE SAVED BY HIS LIFE—Romans 5:10

Romans chapter 5 explains that by the life one man, Adam, sin and death entered the world (vs. 12). By another man, the son of God, ‘abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness entered into the world and reigns in the life of Jesus’ (vs. 17). It’s not a mater of knowing about Him, His philosophy, His rules and guidelines or even trying to do what’s right on our own. Scripture says “We are saved by His […]

NOVEMBER 20, 2014—DELAYED ANSWERS—Dan. 10:12

A very elementary spiritual principle is given here in the key verse that even sincere and devout Christians must be in remembrance of from time to time. If we are obedient and truly desire the will of God, He is always faithful to hear and answer our prayers. It is true that the timing is not ours to set but the answer is sure. If there is a delay to the answer to our prayer there is a reason. […]

NOVEMBER 19, 2014—GOD’S PRESENCE—Psalms 16; 11

Have you ever observed a young couple (or old couple) express their love to each other without saying a word? The way they look at each other, the way they touch and the way they are always concerned for the others welfare, broadcasts a relationship that is true and loving. I remember my father asking constantly where my mother was, just to make sure she was in the house or nearby. It was a great comfort to […]

NOVEMBER 18, 2014—PERFECT THROUGH SUFFERING—Hebrews 2; 10

It was a sad time, that most of us would not have been able to endure, when Job lost his children and wealth, suffered through the advise of his friends and was told by his wife to “curse God and die”… It was a time of extreme suffering when Joseph was sold into slavery by his own brothers and put in prison for doing what was right… There were many days of suffering in the life of the Apostle […]

ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH—luke 8:48

Jesus said to the woman who touched Him and had an issue of blood, “Thy faith hath made thee whole”. When two blind men followed Jesus, they said that they believed He could heal them. Jesus said, “According to your faith be it unto you”. In Matthew chapter 15 a woman came to Jesus saying that her daughter was vexed with a devil. After He saw her faith He said, “O Woman great is thy faith, […]

NOVEMBER 14, 2014—THE SECOND COMMANDMENT—Matthew 22; 39

The first commandment given by Jesus in Matthew 22; 37 reads, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy mind” and then in verse 39 He gives the second commandment, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”. Then Jesus concludes that ‘all the law hangs on these two commandments’. In other words if you fulfill these two, you will have fulfilled all the law. […]
