“He will keep the feet of His saints” [1 Samuel 2:9]       The way is slippery, and our feet are feeble, but the Lord will keep our feet.  If we give ourselves up by obedient faith to be His holy ones, He will Himself be our guardian.  Not only will He charge His angels [...]

“The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them”  [Proverbs 20:12].      How marvellous is the faculty of hearing!  Within each ear is a space not much larger than a hazelnut.  This space is crammed with enough electrical circuits to provide a telephone service for a good-sized city.  [...]

“Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ” [Romans 1:1].      In the Roman Empire, the servant was considered a piece of property to be bought and sold at the whim of the wealthy.  He had few rights, and disobedience to his master could legally result in his death.      As a servant of the Lord [...]

“For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily”  [Colossians 2:9].       The ability to package immense Bible truths within very few words was a gift given to Paul by the Holy Spirit.  And probably no greater example is found than this, that in Christ dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead [...]

“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.  [...]

     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 [...]
