Meet John The Baptist

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. (John 1:6-11, NKJV) 1:6-7 John The Baptist This can be a source of confusion for new readers. John the apostle is the one writing this book. He is not the John mentioned in these two verses. This is John the Baptist. John was sent from God. You may recall the story from Luke 1. John’s father Zacharias was a priest serving in the temple when the angel Gabriel appeared to him and said, But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth. For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will...

Making God Our First Resort

Making God Our First Resort 04.29 Numbers 6 Psalms 40-41 Song Of Solomon 4 Hebrews 4 04.30 (Saturday) Numbers 7 Psalms 42-43 Song Of Solomon 5 Hebrews 5 It is characteristic of human nature to turn to God only after every other avenue of help has been explored and been found useless. This is one of the many evils which sin has visited upon us–the bent to look everywhere for aid but in the right place, and if we do look in the right place, to look there last. No one likes to think that he has been a...

Confidence in God

Confidence in God 04.28  Numbers 5 Psalms 39 Song Of Solomon 3 Hebrews 3 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16, NKJV) “You can have this confidence in God, and you can have this respect for His will. Do not expect God to perform miracles for you so you can write books about them. Do not ever be caught asking God to send you toys like that to play around with. But if you are in trouble and concerned about your situation and willing to be honest with God, you can have confidence in Him. You can go to Him in the merit of His Son, claiming His promises, and He will not let you down. God will help you, and you will find the way of deliverance. God will move heaven and earth for you if you will trust Him.” — A.W. Tower Faith Beyond Reason, p. 49 Thank you for reading The Simple Christian Life.

Enter In

Enter In 04.27  Numbers 4 Psalms 38 Song Of Solomon 2 Hebrews 2 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. (Hebrews 10:19-22, NKJV) “Oh, the glory of the message! For fifteen centuries Israel had a sanctuary with a Holiest of All, into which, under pain of death, no one might enter. Its one witness was: Man cannot dwell in Godís presence; cannot abide in His fellowship. And now how changed is all! As then the warning sounded: ìNo admittance! enter not!î so now the call goes forth: ìEnter in! the veil is rent; the Holiest is open; God waits to welcome you to His bosom; henceforth you are to live with Him.î This is the message. Child! thy Father longs for thee to enter, to dwell, and to go out no more forever.” — Andrew Murray Thank you for reading The Simple Christian Life.
