Get The Right Start Every Day!

Do you begin your day with God? If you can’t say yes to that simple question, you can’t affirm you are “walking with God,” which happens to be the greatest honor imaginable. Jesus, who had all power, would rise up before daybreak to commune with His Heavenly Father. Can we do any less? D.L. Moody, who founded The Moody Church and Moody Bible Institute, was a great evangelist, but also a humble man who sought God with all of his heart. Read his words on daily time with God carefully: “A man can no more take in a … Read More >

How To Please God

A Word of Encouragement and Cheer I would call your attention to the words of Paul in the first chapter of Colossians, verses 9 to 11. “For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; “Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience … Read More >

Studies In The Psalms

As we are about to enter upon the study of this book, I want first to say a few things of an introductory character. I suppose there is no portion of Holy Scripture that has meant more to the people of God, particularly to tried and afflicted believers down through both the Jewish and Christian centuries, than the book of Psalms. Of course the worship expressed in this book does not rise to the full character of Christian worship as in this present dispensation of the grace of God. As we read the Psalms we need to remember that when … Read More >

The Inheritance Of The Tribes And The Story Of Othniel And Achsah

We come now to a portion of the Book of Joshua which, while it would richly repay careful and minute examination, we must pass over cursorily because of the nature of these messages. In chapters 15 to 19 we have the account of the division of the land west of the Jordan among the nine and one-half tribes that had not chosen to remain in the country of Bashan and the land of Gilead on the east side of the river, as had the two and one-half tribes, who found there such fine accommodation for pasturing their great herds of … Read More >

Cleaving To The Lord

Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he sould go as far as Antioch. Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.” —Acts 11:22-23 The background and context of these verses is intensely interesting. Some years had elapsed since the glorious Pentecostal outpouring when the work of grace began in the city of Jerusalem. Our blessed Lord had instructed His disciples to begin … Read More >

Disciplines That Bring Joy

The Disciplines of the Soul Most of us wish that God would work on us while we are asleep so that we could wake to face the day with unwavering confidence and faith! We’d like to be renewed by osmosis, hoping that just being in the vicinity of Christians would make us more Christ-like and that opening a Bible would make us biblical in our thinking. If only such good intentions could make us godly! But although salvation is a free gift, the Christian walk is one that takes some basic disciplines. Paul liked to use athletic contests as an … Read More >

Tips For Bible Study

Approaching the Word of God can be daunting. Some are immediately discouraged by the size, complexity, or vocabulary. Take heart! The Word of God is not difficult with the presence of the Holy Spirit. The guidance of your church leadership and other believers can prove helpful, too. Here are a few tips that have assisted us in our personal walk with God:  Find a helpful translation. Some translations can be a little rigid to the original languages, which can prove helpful for longer studies on particular verses and words. Other translations are a little more fluid. They can be … Read More >

The Psalm Of The Burnt Offering

The death of our Lord Jesus Christ is presented in different ways in Scripture. God, in type and shadow, has set it forth most marvelously in the first seven chapters of the book of Leviticus. There we read of five offerings: the burnt offering, the meal offering, the peace offering, the sin offering, and the trespass offering. These are all different but they all set forth various aspects of the person and work of our Lord Jesus. The meal offering pictures His humanity linked with His deity. The peace offering presents Him as the One who made peace by the … Read More >

Hold Fast And Hold Forth

A sermon preached at The Moody Church by Dr. Walter L. Wilson The Apostle Paul writing to a young man said, “Holding fast the faithful word” (Titus 1:9). What a lovely name to give the precious Book. Writing to a young church, the church at Philippi, he said, “Holding forth the word of life (Philippians 2:16). “Holding fast the faithful Word—holding forth the word of life.” Why? Because we need it for ourselves and because there are enemies trying to take it away from us. Hold it fast, hold it tight, hold it close, cherish it, love … Read More >

The Gospel Of Luke—Its Theme And Author

Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eye-witnesses, and ministers of the word; It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou has been instructed.” In taking up the study of any one of the Gospels it is always well to look … Read More >
