ALL THE DAYS

ALL THE DAYS Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Matthew 28:20. Alway means "all the days," any day, every day. There will be days when we are not conscious of God's presence, when it may seem that He has forgotten us, but He is there although we perceive Him not. Christ lives in the believer's heart and the Holy Spirit is alongside us to help. There are no exceptions—any day, every day, all the days—the promise holds. This day, today, is the day the Lord hath made. Let us read more...

Fall Festival now Dec. 5th

Due to rain this weekend we postponed the Fall Festival till Dec. 5th.   Remember the Sportsman Festival in Warrenton this week on the 14th. We will be there passing out Bibles and tracts.  Appreciate all the ladies who are making cookies for that day!

Mary meets the Master

Mary Meets the Master Consider the appearance of Jesus to Mary in the garden. First, there was a misery. "Woman, why weepest thou?" There was a mystery. Mary didn't know where to find her Lord. So many today are out of touch with Jesus, not living in vital communion. When Mary recognized him, she called Him Master. The cure for the misery is to see the Master and acknowledge Him. There was also a mission. "Go to thy brethren and say..." When we meet the Master, He commissions us. The read more...

When it doesn’t make sense!

When It Doesn't Make Sense Perplexed, but not in despair (2 Cor. 4:8). A few Christians seem to move through this world on an ever-ascending scale: health, success, happy family life, serene old age, and a glorious exit. But with most of us life does not follow the Alger pattern, and with many it goes exactly the other way, through disappointment, pain, grief, broken dreams, and often into sinister situations that simply do not make sense. These days we are listening to ever-increasing read more...

Willing and Working

Willing and Working Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in your both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Philippians 2:12, 13 This combination makes it all the work of God and yet puts us to work. He does the willing and the working. But we “work out what He works in.” It is a blessed thing to know and to remind ourselves as we move through each day, “God is working in me to will and do of his good pleasure.” But let us remember the read more...

JESUS is Lord!

Jesus Is Lord If I were to ask any Sunday-morning congregation, "Do you believe in the lordship of Jesus Christ?" I would get an easy reply in the affirmative. But if I were to ask each individual in that congregation, "Is He Lord of all you are and have?" We might have a very disturbing and revealing morning! Any church gathering can sing, "Bring forth the royal diadem and crown Him Lord of all," but not all who are willing to crown Him with their lips will make Him Lord of their lives. The read more...

The Departing Angel

The Departing Angel And forthwith the angel departed from him. Acts 12:10 The angel had brought Peter out of prison through the gate and safety outside. Now the miracle was over and the angel took his leave. Peter was on his own. God intervenes by His angel many a time to loose our souls from prison. He does the supernatural thing when the occasion demands it. But He does not perform miracles when we can get along without them. He let us do the thing we can do for ourselves, all within read more...

Praying “Accordingly”

Praying "Accordingly" An accordionist is one who plays an accordion. A praying Christian should be an "accordingist," praying by the "accordings" of God that underlie successful praying. We must pray according to His Word. The man who prays Scripturally prays successfully. We must pray according to His will (1 John 5:14, 15). We must pray according to our need (Phil. 4:19). We do not always want what we need or need what we want. We must pray according to our faith. Several read more...

Pattern for Perilous Times

Pattern for Perilous Times The Gospel message is foolishness to this world, of course, and, incidentally, if the message be foolishness what can the messengers expect but to be called fools? But the time has come when the church cannot endure sound doctrine, not the liberals alone, but plenty of fundamentalists. Alexander Whyte spoke of those who "will be thankful to you for telling them the particular times when the Gospels were writ or for explaining the meaning of Euroclydon or anathema read more...
