April 2, 2014—PARTAKERS OF CHRIST—Hebrews 3: 14

What does it mean when it says that Christians are made ‘partakers of Christ’? Well, it is describes in Scripture in many different ways by many different people. Job saw it as a vision of the sovereignty of God and concluded that he would “trust though He slay him”. (Job 13;15) Joshua was instructed to “meditate in the word day and night” and he would have spiritual and military success. (Joshua 1;8) Solomon concluded that it meant to “fear […]

APRIL 1,2014—FAITH AS A MUSTARD SEED—Matthew 17, 20

Faith is an interesting aspect of the Christian life. At first glance it appears that God rewards us for our faith and there may be an element of truth in that. However, the substance of faith is that our very small commitment of faith brings us into a correct relationship with God which allows Him to accomplish all the work. It may seem like a fine line but it is an important one. It’s not that […]

MARCH 31,2014—WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK—Matthew 21:22

“All things, whatsoever, ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” In just a single verse or even one word of Scripture, the power of the Gospel is evident to those who believe. We are reminded continually that God desires to give his children good gifts. “If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.” (John 14: 14) Two words stand out, whatsoever and anything. There is no limit to the […]

MARCH 28,2014—WILL YE ALSO GO AWAY—John 6: 67-68

When a true seeker fully believes in the Lord and purposes in his heart to follow only the voice of the Holy Spirit, as opposed to his designated spiritual leader, set of rules or doctrines, family, circle of friends or others, he will find there is a cost. We are not talking about those so called Christians who follow the crowd or a somewhat popular point of view, we are talking about those who are ‘led by the spirit […]

MARCH 27,2014—OUR BROTHERS KEEPER—Romans 14: 7

The fact that we are our brother’s keeper goes far beyond just having the choice to help our brother when he is in need. Paul said in his letter to the Romans that “None of us liveth to himself”. Everything that we do has an effect on those around us, be it negative or positive. Further, there are no secrets, everything we do is or will be known by all. It was once pointed out to me that […]

MARCH 26,2014—ARE YOU LISTENING TO GOD?—Exodus 20:19

The children of Israel went to Moses and said, “You speak to us…but let not God speak with us”. Although that conversation took place 3500 years ago the same could be said for today. It’s not that Christians willfully disobey the Lord, it’s simply that they do not know Him well enough to hear His voice and they go through life ‘knowing about Him’ instead of ‘knowing Him’. This represents a major difference because ‘knowing Him’ personally […]

MARCH 25,2014—FATHERLESS—John 8: 28

Roget’s Thesaurus of English Words, on page 876, gives the only synonym for ‘fatherless’ as ‘defenseless’. If we ponder the meaning of ‘fatherless’ for just a moment it will become clear what has happened to our nation over the last hundred to one hundred and fifty years. When the industrial revolution began, a need arose for factory workers and men began to leave the small farm and family business to work in the cities. The children […]

MARCH 24,2014—WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR YOU—1 Corinthians 2: 9

There are many of us who have wasted years of our youth seeking our own way either deep in sin or at least wasting time in fruitless endeavors. At some point in life we are faced with the question, “What am I doing and what is the purpose of all this?” For the Christian the answer is simple but can only be realized when we come to the end of ourselves. “Fear God, and keep his commandments” was […]

MARCH 21,2014—I WILL GUIDE THEE WITH MINE EYE—Psalms 32: 8

Psalms 32 is believed to have been written by David just after he repented of his sin with Bath-sheba for his first statement in the Psalm is “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven”… If we go back and read the account of that episode between David and Bath-sheba it appears that he did not have a clue as to what he was getting into. In fact, it came as a complete surprise to him when Nathan told […]

MARCH 20, 2014—THE POWER OF FAITH—Hebrews 11: 32,33

Have you ever wondered why there seems to be very few demonstrations of the power of God in our day and time? In the book of Hebrews, Paul reminds us of the things the Lord did on the basis of faith. “And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets; Who […]
