Devotional Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. Romans 10:1 We tend to regard certain people as being “beyond hope” and assume they must, of necessity, continue in their grooves as they are and die unrepentant and unredeemed. We just shake our heads over [...]

“But now is Christ risen from the dead.” [I Corinthians 15:20]      In a dramatic, miraculous event, Paul met Jesus Christ on the Damascus road.  So real was the appearance of Christ to him that thereafter he preached Christ crucified and risen from the dead.      The resurrection of Christ is the great capstone [...]

“The books, but specially the parchments” [II Timothy 4:13]      The end is drawing near for God’s valiant servant Paul.  He writes his last epistle from Rome, and closes it with a simple request for his cloak to be brought from Troas, along with his books and parchments.  In his unconverted days Paul was [...]

Devotional How constantly our Master used the title, the "Son of man!" If He had chosen, He might always have spoken of Himself as the Son of God, the Everlasting Father, the Wonderful, the Counsellor, the Prince of Peace; but behold the lowliness of Jesus! He prefers to call Himself the Son of [...]

Devotional “Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.” Genesis 31:24 The vulnerability of men to the attacks of others has been amply demonstrated in history.
