Word on Wednesday – by John Mason‘Doubt…?’ – July 10, 2019Doubt. One of the things I love about the Bible is its earthy realism. It understands the world we live in – the good and the bad, the joys and the sadness.

The delight of despair And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. Rev. 1:17.

“If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.” —1 Peter 2:3 If:—then, this is not a matter to be taken for granted concerning every one of the human race. “If:”—then there is a possibility and a probability that some may not have tasted that the Lord is gracious. “If:”—then this is not a general but a special mercy; and it is needful to enquire whether we know the grace of God by inward experience. There is no spiritual favour which may not be a...
