“I love the Lord” [Psalm 116:1]. Tried, tested, afflicted, buffeted by many a foe, having stared death in the face, yet the Psalmist can still cry, “I love the Lord.” The apostle Peter could say, “ Thou knowest that I love thee.” [John 21:17] Every believer can also say what Peter said. [...]

Devotional "All the fulness of the Godhead bodily." Colossians 2:9 The ability to package immense Bible truths within a very few words was a gift given Paul by the Holy Spirit. And probably no greater example is found than this statement that in Christ dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. At this [...]
“Cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound” [Leviticus 25:9] In ancient Israel, after seven Sabbaths of years, the fiftieth year was declared the Year of Jubilee. It began at the close of the Day of Atonement with the sounding of the trumpet. The holy convocations of Leviticus provide us with a picture gallery [...]
Devotional The same lesson is taught in a very striking way in the second passage in Luke to which I have already referred, Luke 18:1-8: “And He spake a parable unto them to the end that they ought always to pray, and not to faint; saying, There was in a city a judge, [...]
It used to be called Great Britain, and I remember parade banners with the motto, “the secret of England’s greatness” with a picture of the Christian Bible beside it. Sadly, the greatness has departed as is proved by the latest British census figures. The census is taken every ten years the latest being [...]
Devotional “O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.” Psalm 65:2 There come times in each life when loneliness overshadows like a cloud, and no one is there to listen and provide counsel. Or perhaps there is some problem so personal and intimate that it seems unfitting or too embarrassing [...]
This was written this past week by a nine-year girl to celebrate American Thanksgiving. What a lovely testimony. Unfortunately, my format does not allow me to reproduce it in her lovely handwriting. “Thanksgiving reminds me of all the people and things I’m thankful for. I appreciate Jesus, my family, and my pets. [...]
Devotional "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;" Ephesians 1:7 Could there be a sweeter word in any language than that word "forgiveness," when it sounds in a guilty sinner's ear, like the silver notes of jubilee to the captive Israelite?

“Behold, He cometh with clouds” [Revelation 1:7] According to the apostle Paul, the blessed hope of the church is “the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour” [Titus 2:13]. The passage of time has not dimmed that expectation. Jesus is coming again. Christ’s coming is to be personal, physical, and [...]
Devotional “The fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.” Ephesians 5:9 This brief but profound statement comes in the course of Paul's argument that holiness is the natural way of life for believers. He lists some of the things that mark the ungodly but that are against all [...]
“A friend loveth at all times” [Proverbs 17:17] Cicero said, “Friendship is the only thing in the world of which all mankind are agreed.” In all ages men have esteemed, extolled, and treasured friendship. It has been well described as “the most beautiful and fragrant flower that man meets in his earthly pilgrimage. [...]
Devotional "I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep." John 10:11 When Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd," He taught some far-reaching truths about Himself, His mission, and His work In the light of all the Old Testament had said about the Shepherd, Christ's words carry this [...]
