“Our Lord Cometh” Everyday – 11.26.2022

MARANATHA! This was the watchword and greeting of the early Church. It was full of expectancy for it meant “our Lord cometh.” Not understanding all that the prophets said, they were looking for Jesus to return at any moment. Now, since we do understand the promises, we know there is nothing more that must be … Continue reading “Our Lord Cometh” Everyday – 11.26.2022

Only To Be Turned Away – 11.25.2022

Sometime in the late 1800's a yacht docked at the wharf of Inverness, Scotland. Two young men got off and decided to stroll through the countryside. Being in unfamiliar territory, they became lost. After many hours trying to find their way, they stopped at a farmer’s cottage asking for food. He turned them away very … Continue reading Only To Be Turned Away – 11.25.2022

Busy Doing Religious Things – 11.22.2022

We need to be careful as Christians, individually, and as the Church, corporately, lest we get so busy doing religious things that we fail to do that which reveals the heart of God. Jesus told us about the man robbed, wounded, and left for dead on the road to Jericho. The Priest, the Levite, and … Continue reading Busy Doing Religious Things – 11.22.2022

When inquiring of the “Spiritual health” of a certain church, one who was a member there answered, “We have had very few conversions in the last four years I have attended there.

A Weary Wilderness – 11.16.2022

The best of God’s saints have their nights; the dearest of His children have to walk through a weary wilderness. There is not a Christian who has enjoyed perpetual happiness; there is no believer who can always sing a song of joy! It is not every star that can always be seen. Not every Christian … Continue reading A Weary Wilderness – 11.16.2022

Harbor.. Safety From Storms – 11.12.2022

I was thinking today of harbors, a place of safety from storms. Harbors are usually circular with an arm extending a long way out, running parallel with the land, affording a narrow causeway for ships to enter these safe waters. The storm may rage on the outside and the waves may beat against the harbor … Continue reading Harbor.. Safety From Storms – 11.12.2022

The Cost Of The Bridge – 11.11.2022

We were reading of the Menai Bridge which opened in 1826, serving the Welch citizens in traveling from the mainland to the Anglesey on the opposite side of the treacherous Menai Straits. A tower was erected at the bridge listing the names of all those who lost their lives in the construction. Nothing is said … Continue reading The Cost Of The Bridge – 11.11.2022
