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”

WHEN A PERSON SPEAKS; WHEN GOD SPEAKS

The other evening I was stretched out on my bed reading The Book of Numbers.   One begins reading, and immediately encounters that statement:  “Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first of the second month, in the second year after they had come outContinue reading “WHEN A PERSON SPEAKS; WHEN GOD SPEAKS”

CONSIDER THIS…SOME THOUGHTS ON HEAVEN…

Being a very practical person, I guess I should start at that point…Heaven is always treated in Scripture from a practical point of view. Herbert Lockyer noted: “The thought of Heaven becomes an Element in the Formation of Character… ‘Do not lay up treasures upon earth; lay up treasures in Heaven.’ (Matthew 6:19) Character isContinue reading “CONSIDER THIS…SOME THOUGHTS ON HEAVEN…”

AGING

Living and working daily in a senior community allows for unlimited opportunities to observe this group of people, of which we form a part. While we have our problems and limitations, there are some very positive traits for which we excitedly plead guilty. The majority of people in these communities are quite positive in theirContinue reading “AGING”

SUICIDE

Over the years I have been associated with people who have chosen to commit suicide. The methods have been varied and the reasons even more so. It has been frustrating to see life ebbing from a body because someone considered their existence to be worthless. No amount of counseling by professionals, amateurs, or personal friendsContinue reading “SUICIDE”

THE CHURCH IN YOUR HOUSE

Scripture is filled with “tidbit” thoughts that are often overlooked in our haste to move through the Word in an annual program and complete our reading in one year. Sometimes we read so hurriedly that we miss those tidbits. A friend decided, some years ago, to learn how to read fast and thus enable himselfContinue reading “THE CHURCH IN YOUR HOUSE”

BE SEPARATE

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2 I recall so vividly thoseContinue reading “BE SEPARATE”

CHRIST APPOINTS SEVENTY

“He who hears you hears Me, he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.” Luke 10:16 We all enjoy the manner in which the Lord Jesus chose the twelve disciples. What a unique group from multiplied backgrounds with personalities as different as “night and day”. Usually it is notContinue reading “CHRIST APPOINTS SEVENTY”

BUT THESE ARE WRITTEN

“And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.” John 21:25 I cannot say for certain, but in all probability, I was recommended to read the Gospel of John asContinue reading “BUT THESE ARE WRITTEN”
