Romans 3:21-24

Babies have the wonderful ability to fall asleep in the midst of great commotion. They close their eyes, untroubled by worry or fear. Our heavenly Father’s desire is that we would have the same sense of security about our life in Him. He wants us to live certain of our everlasting relationship with Him through Jesus.

Have you ever noticed that when babies become toddlers, fear begins to enter their minds? Many cry over small disturbances or become unwilling to leave a parent’s side. They seem unable to accept their mom or dad’s reassurance that everything is fine. Much of the time, their situation has not changed at all—they have the same safety and protection they had as babies—but they’ve lost their sense of assurance. They will not believe the one who knows the truth: their parent.

This is just what some of us do. We fail to…

“Be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:10-12).

Victory in battle comes when you identify the enemy, resist his attacks, and then take the initiative against him.

Our nation has known many wars, but Vietnam was an especially frustrating campaign. Thick jungle terrain made the enemy hard to find and guerrilla warfare made him hard to fight. Many Vietnamese who peacefully worked the rice paddies by day donned the black garb of the Viet Cong soldier by night and invaded unsuspecting U.S. forces camped nearby. American public opinion was strongly…

A.W. PINK ON RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION

A.W. PINK ON RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION

COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPARATE, SAITH THE LORD! [2 Corinthians 6:17].

And what will follow when this Divine command is obeyed? Why, then we shall prove the truth of those words of Christ: “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world HATETHyou (John 15:19). WHICH “world” is specifically in view here? Let the previous verse answer: “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”

WHAT “world” hated Christ and hounded Him to death? The RELIGIOUS world, those who pretended to be most zealous for God’s glory. So it is now. Let the Christian turn his back upon a Christ—dishonoring Christendom, and his fiercest foes and most relentless…

243 – August 31 – This Day in Baptist History Past

He spent eleven years in jail

John Bunyan died on August 31, 1688. It was the year that England was delivered from popish tyranny. His birth took place the same year as the passage of the “English Bill of Rights.” Bunyan represents a great host of Baptists who loved liberty of conscience and were dedicated to their Lord and the principles of His Word. Bunyan was a prisoner for preaching the glad tidings of salvation. He refused a license from the State Anglican Church to preach.  The King gave him a license but he refused to sign it and spent an additional six months in prison.  Bunyan had attended the Baptist meetings and regularly preached some four years before his release in the 11th year. The congregation chose him for their pastor and he accepted. Only a man like Bunyan could exercise his pastoral office in preaching among them as he…

FINGER, ARM AND HAND OF GOD

FINGER, ARM AND HAND OF GOD

God puts forth His power in VARYING degrees, proportioned to the work which He has before Him. Thus, Christ referred to His casting out of demons “with the FINGER of God” (Luke 11:20). Speaking to Israel, Moses said, “With a strong HAND hath the Lord brought thee out of Egypt” (Exodus 13:9). When referring to the amazing miracle of the Divine incarnation Mary said, “HE hath showed strength with His ARM” (Luke 1:51).

But when Paul prayed that God would enlighten His saints to apprehend His stupendous miracle of grace in salvation, it was that they might know “THE EXCEEDING GREATNESS of His power to us-ward”. [Eph 1:19]

Contrasting Lives and Results

Psalm 1

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,” Psalm 1:1.

The three postures—walking, standing and sitting—cover most of our lives. We rarely think of a person we respect in terms of small incidents, rather, we have a generic, all-encompassing attitude about that person’s walk in life. For example, my mother was a hard-working nurse who would storm the gates of hell for her five children. But, I always thought of her as soft and understanding. I could look at her work-worn hands and they preached a life of suffering from the ravages of childhood polio. Her walk and her stand on any matter were bold and clear, no shades of gray. In her presence, one just knew he had to comply with righteous standards. At the same time, because of a lifetime of suffering, one knew mercy and patience were available in…
