Life In Jesus Christ

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. (John 1:3-5, NKJV) 1:3 Jesus created everything. If it was created, it was created by Jesus Christ. In Colossians we read: For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. (Colossians 1:16-17) Jesus Christ created all things, and in Him, all things hold together. Remember that this statement was written nearly 2,000 years ago. Today, we know that atoms are made up of a positively charged nucleus and negatively charged electrons. A basic experiment with a magnet will tell you that like charges repel one another. How is it that in the atom’s case, the like charges do not repel one another and fly apart, scattering themselves into nothing? In Him all things consist. One day, He will say enough is enough, and He will let go.  Chapter 3 of 2 Peter describes this in more detail than we might want to know. Jesus Christ is the Creator, Sustainer, and Maintainer of...

The Proper Goal

04.21  Leviticus 25 Psalms 32 Ecclesiastes 8 2 Timothy  4 “The will of God is always the proper goal for every one of us. Where God is must be the place of desire. Any motion toward God is a forward motion. Even repentance is not a retreat toward the past but a decided march into a more glorious future. Restitution is not a return to yesterday but a step into a blessed tomorrow. There is such a thing as going backward in the spiritual life. There is such a thing as a retreat from a spiritual position once held by us as individual Christians. And there is such a thing as denominations and missionary societies making a wholesale withdrawal from ground once won at tremendous cost. If we find that we have gone back, then we should immediately reverse the direction and again go forward. The great truths of superior spiritual experiences, of high levels of personal living, of rapturous communion with the Three Persons of the Godhead, of victory over the flesh, of the gifts and power of the Spirit: what has happened to these? Once they marked us out and made us peculiar. What about it today? These are fair questions and they demand an answer. If candid self-examination reveals a departure from the green pastures where once our fathers grazed, what then? Let there be no...

In the World But Not of It

04.20 Leviticus 24 Psalms 31 Ecclesiastes 7 2 Timothy  3 We are sent to bless the world, but never are we told to compromise with it. Our glory lies in a spiritual withdrawal from all that builds on dust. The bee finds no honey while crawling around the hive. Honey is in the flower far away where there is quiet and peace and the sun and the flowing stream; there the bee must go to find it. The Christian will find slim pickings where professed believers play and pray all in one breath. He may be compelled sometimes to...

Today’s Bible Verse & Christian Quote

Today’s Bible Verse:

Colossians 1:25-26; of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.

Today’s Christian Quote:

“The mystery is this: that God had designed to grant the Gentiles the same privileges with the Jews, and make them his people who were not his people. That this in what Paul means by the mystery, see Ephesians 3:3, etc.” – Adam Clarke
