O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” (Romans 8:35a) On June 6, 1882 George Matheson penned the hauntingly beautiful words to the hymn “0 Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go.” Here’s how he describes it: “My hymn was composed in the manse of lnnelan [Argyleshire, Scotland] on the evening of the 6th…

Why do you stand gazing up into heaven? (Acts 1:11)

You see, that’s not where Christians are meant to be. Do you see? It’s not about just gazing into heaven. Now, times when we gaze into heaven are wonderful times, but that’s not where we’re meant to be, because there’s work to do. There’s work to do. There’s mission to be involved in. There are…

Awesome is our God

I will love You, 0 LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved…

What Does It Mean to Love God?

(1) Love to God must be PURE and GENUINE. He must be loved chiefly for Himself. We must love God, not only for His benefits — but for those intrinsic excellencies with which He is crowned. We must love God — not only for the good which flows from Him — but for the good…

Constant and Intimate Communion

At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth…” (Matt 11:25) This is a pointed way in which to begin a verse — “At that time Jesus declared.” If you look at the context you will realize that no one had asked Him a question and that He was not in conversation…

In Christ

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think …” (Ephesians 3:20)   When we see that the whole sum of our salvation, and every single part of it, are comprehended in Christ, we must beware of deriving even the minutest portion of it from any…

Praying Through Genesis 2

We come to you this morning, our Maker, Redeemer and eternal Rest. You are the one who patterns the weeks of our lives, ordered by the work of your creation and the rest of your holy day. We praise you for giving us work for six days and rest for one day. We know that…

Instructions concerning Providence

“Your way was in the sea, Your path in the great waters, and Your footsteps were not known. You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.” (Psalm 77:19–20)) The design of Providence may sometimes lie very hid; and therefore it is good to wait, and not be rash (Ps…

A Faith that Fights

“Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.” (Romans 6:12–13) The doctrines of…

The Christian’s Vision

Losing our vision along the path is quite easy. The daily chores, routines, and stresses of life take over. Each next step seems all important. At times we are simply trying to make it through the day or even the next hour. Even godly pursuits such as reading the Bible, praying, memorizing Scripture, and exercising…
