Back to School

As schools resume and teaching gets underway and first progress reports come back, Christians also ought to consider what class they are in and how they have grown.

In school it is helpful to know what class you are in. There is a great advantage to knowing your place, and what you are to do. It is only when we know our place and are clear about our work, that we can do it. But like in school, Christians should never just be content to stay in the same class year after year. There must be growth and advancement. Though …Read More

He Returned with Thanksgiving

What does giving thanks look like? In Luke 17:11-19, we have a vivid picture of what it means to give thanks. We find Jesus traveling with intent, straight through the lesser parts of Israel – Galilee and Samaria. The very fact that the Savior graces these parts tells us that He has come to seek and to save that which is lost (Luke 19:10). Ten men who are lepers intercept Jesus. They have a horrible skin disease. They are social outcasts and live outside the walls of the city. And yet Jesus takes time for them by traveling …Read More

The Cleansing of the Word

The Apostle Paul speaks about Christ cleansing His Bride with the washing of the Word. That theme of the cleansing Word is found not only in Ephesians, but also in the Psalms. In Psalm 119:9-16, David focuses on the same cleansing power of the Word. That power of course is only effective because of the living, incarnate Word. In verse 9, David raises this question, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way?” The answer is this, “By taking heed thereto according to thy word.” The Word of God is our only foundation for purification. No matter how …Read More

A Word-Ordered Life

The title of Psalm 119 could very well be called “The Word-Ordered Life of the Christian.” In verses 1-3 we see the blessedness of a Word-centered life. The Psalmist repeats for emphasis, “Blessed are the undefiled…Blessed are they that keep…[Blessed are they] that seek him.” Literally, that man is happy who walks according to the Word of God. He is not happy according to the world’s standards, but finds his greatest happiness or blessedness in God, the highest Good. Where do you find your happiness?

Those who walk in such happiness are described as those who …Read More

Trusting in God’s Committed Care

In Psalm 37:5-6 we read the following words, “Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.”

There is the simple command to commit our way unto the LORD. What does that mean? Literally, it could be translated, “Roll all your cares onto the LORD.” It gives the picture of a great burden too great for us to carry, but it also gives the child of God great hope that God is …Read More

The Church and Nation Laid in God’s Balance

“Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this” (Jer. 9:9)? These are the sobering words of the weeping prophet, Jeremiah, to the sinful nation of Israel. But they are also a sobering message to the Church and our own nation.

These words reveal our sad, sad condition. They reveal the true condition of every human heart, which has been effected by Adam’s sin. It reveals the condition of the Church, drifting away from its moorings and heritage. It reveals the state …Read More
