    Our Replacement

    February 19, 2020

    Our Replacement

    Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.
    Psalm 51:1

    The concept of being replaced usually has a negative connotation. We work hard to become important and irreplaceable. While this mindset has its benefits at work, it will not...

    The Body Of Christ

    February 19, 2020

    The Body of Christ

    Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
    1 Corinthians 12:27

    Dr. Warren Wiersbe summed up the Christian experience like this. “Salvation includes a threefold work: the work God does for us—salvation; the work God does in us—sanctification; the work God does through us—service.”

    Signs Of Life

    Signs of Life

    We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren.
    1 John 3:14

    In earlier ages it was often hard to determine when someone was actually dead. Books of historical oddities are filled with accounts of people accidentally buried alive. Hans Christian Andersen was so petrified by the prospect that he kept a...

    Light Of the World

    Light of the World

    Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
    Matthew 5:16

    Physically speaking, there is one light of our world—the giant star we call the sun. The sun is so dominant in the life of planet earth that it was worshiped by some ancient cultures. In the third...

    Loving God, Loving Others

    Loving God, Loving Others

    He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.
    1 John 2:9

    Horticulturists in the United Kingdom have developed a plant they are calling the “tomtato.” Above ground it produces tomatoes, but below ground it produces potatoes. This is unnatural, of course. The apostle James...

    Always Enthroned

    January 3, 2020

    Always Enthroned

    In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.
    Isaiah 6:1

    Sometimes after a calamitous event, a well-meaning person will say, “Not to worry. God is still on His throne and everything will be alright.” That is definitely true, and...

    Double Blessings

    January 3, 2020

    Double Blessings

    But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
    2 Corinthians 9:6

    When it comes to stewardship, our giving to God is like a farmer sowing seed in a field. If we sow abundantly we reap abundantly; if we sow sparingly we reap sparingly. But can that principle...

    Lighting Up The Polar Lights

    January 3, 2020

    Lighting Up the Polar Night

    The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.
    Matthew 4:16

    If you’re planning a Christmas trip to Tromsø, Norway, don’t pack your sunglasses. Between November and January the sun never rises there. This town, which...

    Worry Killed Him

    Worry Killed Him

    But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry….
    Mark 13:11

    On December 28, 1900, The (Toronto) Daily Mail and Empire ran this headline: “Illness Slight, Worry Killed Him.” The story said: “James McIntosh, of 535 Talbot Avenue, Braddock, worried himself to death. That is the opinion of his...
