Word on Wednesday – by John Mason ‘Insignificant…?’ – October 10, 2018 In our social media driven world that gives voice to ‘my’ feelings one question surfaces: ‘Who or what are we?’ Shakespeare’s Hamlet put it this way: What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form, in moving, how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! (Hamlet, II.ii) Interestingly Psalm 8 paints a...

Salvation is not a Group Project   I remember group projects in high school and college. They normally did not go well. Either a brainiac, an egomaniac, or a sluggard usually messed things up. Too many people contributing to one common project caused things to just not be as good as if one person is doing a project.   The reality is, most people think that becoming a Christian is a joint project–they contribute all they can and Jesus finishes the job. They have to...

The exclusiveness of Christ Come unto Me. Matthew 11:28. Is it not humiliating to be told that we must come to Jesus! Think of the things we will not come to Jesus Christ about.

HE sups with you because you find the house or the heart, and you with him because he brings the provision. He could not sup with you if it were not in your heart; nor could you sup with him if he did not bring the provision with him. Fling wide, then, the portals of your soul. He will come with that love which you long to feel; he will come with that joy into which you cannot work your poor depressed spirit; he will bring the peace which now you have not. Only open the door...

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18 The secret of Christian holiness is heart-occupation with Christ Himself. As we gaze upon Him we become like Him. Do you want to be holy? Spend much time in His presence. Let the loveliness of the risen Lord so fill the vision of your soul that all else is shut out. Then the things...
