Have you ever been expressionless with sorrow? And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich. Luke 18:23. The rich young ruler went away expressionless with sorrow; he had not a word to say. He had no doubt as to what Jesus said, no debate as to what it meant, and it produced in him a sorrow that had not any words. Have you ever been there? Has God’s word come to you about something you are very rich in—temperament, personal affinity, relationships...

I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 It is all-important that we recognize in Jesus not simply a great teacher or a religious leader who, having found God for himself, could now point out the right way to others. He is far more than one who showed the way. He is Himself the Way, the Truth, the Life. The authority with which He spoke was the very voice of God, who had become incarnate in Jesus. He who subsisted in the...

Word on Wednesday – by John Mason ‘Christ’s Love…’ – August 15, 2018 Love. Back in the sixties Burt Bacharach sang: What the world need now is love sweet love … The Beatles were singing All You Need is Love. The problem was then and still remains today that it’s one thing to sing about love, but quite another to live it. In his prayer in Ephesians 3:14-21, Paul prays that God’s people be rooted and grounded in Christ’s love and so have the...

The Unswered Prayer Prayer ur heavenly Father, there are times in our lives when we come to You, as children unto an understanding Father, and we ask of You things that seem not only reasonable but kind and good; and by Your grace, You provide for our needs before we even ask; but we confess that there are times when we ask and do not receive—and, yes, O Lord our God, we ask amiss and do not receive—but, Our Father, do we not receive because of this condition each time...

In fact when I’m working in the yard these days I will still get a quick drink from time to time from the hose. I like it. I like the taste; compared to the water that comes from the dispenser on the door of my fridge you would almost think they were from a different source. The water in the house passes through our water softener system, then through a filtration system in the...
