The Secret Love Life of the Faithful Pastor Rembrandt. The Apostle Paul, ca. 1657. National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. I remember my old mentor, Dr. D. James Kennedy, telling me that the pastor must love three things more than all others: God, God’s Word, and God’s People. I believe his admonition of these simple and profound intuitive desires came from a singular passion stirred in the heart of the pastor by God Himself. I believe that these three “loves”...

Rejoice in Him By Billy Graham   •   January 16    I will rejoice in the Lord, I will take joy in the God of my salvation. —Habakkuk 3:18 Christians are supposed to be happy persons! Our generation has become well versed in Christian terminology, but is remiss in the actual practice of Christ’s principles and teachings.

“Do as thou hast said.” 2 Samuel 7:25 God’s promises were never meant to be thrown aside as waste paper; he intended that they should be used. God’s gold is not miser’s money, but is minted to be traded with. Nothing pleases our Lord better than to see his promises put in circulation; he loves to see his children bring them up to him, and say, “Lord, do as thou hast said.” We glorify God when we plead his promises. Do you think that...

January 14  Called By God By Oswald Chambers I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” —Isaiah 6:8 God did not direct His call to Isaiah— Isaiah overheard God saying, “…who will go for Us?” The call of God is not just for a select few but for everyone. Whether I hear God’s call or not depends on the condition of my ears, and exactly what I hear depends upon my...

January 13  Have You Ever Been Alone with God? (2) By Oswald Chambers When He was alone…the twelve asked Him about the parable. —Mark 4:10 His Solitude with Us. When God gets us alone through suffering, heartbreak, temptation, disappointment, sickness, or by thwarted desires, a broken friendship, or a new friendship— when He gets us absolutely alone, and we are totally speechless, unable to ask even one question, then He begins to teach us. Notice Jesus Christ’s...

FORGET NONE OF HIS BENEFITS volume 17, number 2, January 11, 2018 “. . . to be cast into the eternal fire.” -Matthew 18:8 An Important 2018 Prayer Goal The Bible clearly states, repeatedly, that many people go to hell when they die. Why? First of all, since the Bible is God’s inspired, infallible, and inerrant word, it has all authority and must be read, studied, and obeyed. To refuse this is to live in disobedience to God. Jesus said that those who hear...
