Put God’s Promises into Circulation God’s promises were never meant to be thrown aside as wastepaper; 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 you have said.” We glorify God when we plead His promises. Do you think that God will be...

A Tale of Two Professors Every January 3, I celebrate the birthday of two of my favorite professors, J.R.R. Tolkien and Dr. Rod Rosenbladt. Is it a mere historical coincidence that these two professors share a birthday? Like C.S. Lewis, I do not believe in coincidences. The fact that these powerhouses of intellect and imagination share a birthday only adds to the day’s delight and joy. And I praise and thank God for it every year, and perhaps with the year that has just...

Just Another Story…? Everyone loves a good story.  Millions have enjoyed J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, and millions more, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter. The Bible has been described as ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’. Many would agree, but rarely read it or think about it. Deep down we long for a better experience of life and a certainty about the future. The question is, ‘Where can we find it?’ This was a key issue that...

Understanding the Future When we ask questions about matters that elude our full understanding, we tend to look for models or patterns that are similar to what we do understand. We seek for clues to a new and different paradigm. The shift from earthbound thinking to conceiving of heaven is a massive paradigm shift. To speak of our mysterious future is to search for analogies that will give us a hint about what to expect. We cannot say what heaven is, but the Bible does...

The Problem of Guilt I recall having a debate with the manager of a radio station. He took a common position. “You cannot legislate morality,” he said. Although this man was a professing Christian, he thought it was improper for one segment of society to impose its moral standards on the other parts of society. The position is quite popular, but it does not make a whole lot of sense. After all, there are laws against murder, rape, and robbery. This position is based on...

Polluted by Holy Motives? What a veil is lifted up by these words, and what a disclosure is made! It will be humbling and profitable for us to pause awhile and see this sad sight. The iniquities of our public worship, its hypocrisy, formality, lukewarmness, irreverence, wandering of heart, and forgetfulness of God—what a full measure have we there! Our work for the Lord, its emulation, selfishness, carelessness, slackness, unbelief—what a mass of defilement is there! Our...
