IT WILL BE WORTH IT ALL

The song-writer said: It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,          Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,          So bravely run the race till we see Christ.

IDEAS NEED REVAMPING

We are immediately reminded that the one who appears as lacking substance, even to his clothing, should be treated equally. If one follows the words of James you note that he deals with the subject of personal and practical Christianity.  Put your practices in a world of evidence by not just saying “I have faithContinue reading “IDEAS NEED REVAMPING”

ADMONISH A BROTHER

Left to his actions it will only get worse. Perhaps one of the most difficult challenges that is needed in the church in this hour, is that which we find in 2 Timothy 3:15!  While it is needed and approved relative to a brother who is causing problems, we discover that in our modern societyContinue reading “ADMONISH A BROTHER”

REPETITIVE?

“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.”  On occasion I am certain that some of you feel I am repetitive; and you are right!  No matter how I try to check my behavior in that area, I sometimes feel an “urge” that sends me scootingContinue reading “REPETITIVE?”

REPEATED HISTORY?

COME! A FINAL COME?

The Book of Revelation was written to the seven Churches of Asia; it was written by the Apostle John, and indicated the immediate as well as the future for the Church.  It leaves only one church without a message of condemnation by the end of history; (Philadelphia) there God says: “I know your deeds.  Behold,Continue reading “COME! A FINAL COME?”

COINCIDENTAL

My friend Jerry is an interesting character that I met at a prayer meeting when Patsy and I moved to Arizona.  We get together weekly just to fellowship and talk about the Scriptures. If I share with Jerry something special of the Lord’s working, he will usually say in a very sagacious manner, “Coincidental!”  HeContinue reading “COINCIDENTAL”

THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST

“Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of GodContinue reading “THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST”
