Hallelujah Anyway!

I want you to know brethren, that what I have gone through has resulted in the furtherance of the gospel.”—Philippians 1:12 (Weymouth translation) “What I have gone through.” What tremendously suggestive words these are, and how personal they are to everybody, but in so many different ways. Has there been for you a crushing bereavement which has broken your heart, or has it been a fiery trial of temptation that has threatened to make shipwreck of your testimony? Has it been a broken friendship, shattered hope, an unexpected and unwanted change in circumstances of life? Or some physical suffering, such … Read More >

How Do You Know When You Reach The Point Of No Return?

The question under consideration is an interesting one: “How do you know when you reach the point of no return in your Christian life? I would say, to begin with, that the personal commitment of a life to the Lord Jesus is the only basis of salvation. Salvation is not a statement of doctrine; it is a surrender to a Person. Of course, you believe right, or you cannot live right. But you can believe right and still not be saved. Personal salvation must involve commitment, and you can find no other basis of salvation in the New Testament. “What … Read More >

God's Word Tested And Proven

Admittedly these chapters and the most of those to follow do not lend themselves readily to expository preaching. Yet we would not forget that “All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable;” so we may be sure that these portions were written for our admonition and have in them precious lessons we cannot afford to pass over lightly. In the opening verses of Joshua 11, we read of the second, and, as it turned out, the last great coalition of Canaanite nations that Joshua and the Lord’s host had to face before they could take possession of their promised inheritance. This time … Read More >

What The Cross Means

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this World? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by … Read More >

How To Make A Success Of The Christian Life

Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should 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 I don’t know how many of you have clearly in mind the background of these verses but 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 … Read More >

A Fine Example

“Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellow-soldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants”—Philippians 2:25 There are folk whose names appear only once or perhaps at the most twice in Scripture, yet whose character is just full of inspiration and comfort and help. Epaphroditus is one of these, and we might easily overlook him and forget about him altogether, because apart from the mention of his name in our text and in the 18th verse of the 4th chapter of this very letter, we don’t hear … Read More >

Care Free; Prayer Full.

(Excerpts from an address delivered at Watch Night meeting at the [Moody] Tabernacle by Mrs. J.D. Williams of C. & M.A. Bible School, St. Paul) “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”—Philippians 4:6 Just two thoughts stand out in this verse for us in these few moments as we look into the Word: BE CARE FREE: BE PRAYER FULL. I believe as you have gone on in your Christian life you have found that nothing hinders prayer so much as anxiety; fretting and anxious care. Then, … Read More >

First Things First

But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”—Matthew 6:33 Today we are considering the matter of putting first things first. There are so many things which press for a claim upon our time, our affections, our ambition and as long as this kind of competition continues, there can be no peace or harmony in the life. It is a great thing when one master aim grips the whole being as it did Paul in Philippians 3:13, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one … Read More >

Does Anybody Care?

Luke 10:25-37. We call this “The Parable of the Good Samaritan,” but it is much more than a story. When Jesus spoke these words, He was focusing the white light of His judgment on the human heart. Each one of us is in this story in one way or another. We cannot escape. A man is walking down the road alone. When you look at this man, what do you see? Tell me what you see, and I will tell you what is in your heart. In this story, we discover five different attitudes toward the man, five attitudes that … Read More >

Life With A Capital "L"

L-I-F-E—life. A word so simple a child can spell it; a word so profound a philosopher cannot fully explain it. Life—that wonderful thing we so easily take for granted. Where did it come from? Where is it going? Does it have any meaning at all? Does life have any meaning, or is everything we see just an accidental meeting of atoms? George Bernard Shaw once suggested that, if the other planets are inhabited, they must be using Earth as their insane asylum. And Shakespeare has Macbeth tell us that life is a “tale told by an idiot, full of sound … Read More >
