The Lamp & The Light

Psalm 119:105 – Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. The lamp is an ancient symbol for wisdom and learning.  The psalmist declares that the Word of God is the lamp that illuminates the path set out by the infinite wisdom and knowledge of the Almighty.  In this familiar […]

The Lord Direct Your Hearts – 2 Thessalonians 3:5

2 Thessalonians 3:5 – And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?  Well, I believe a plain reading of the Bible reveals that the chicken came first followed by the egg.  For many, a more difficult question […]

Babies Need Milk – 1 Peter 2:2-3

1 Peter 2:2-3 – As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. Have you ever met a baby that was not often hungry? Probably not. Babies yearn for comfort, food, and stimulation to learn. By all of […]

The Spirit – 2 Timothy 1:7

2 Timothy 1:7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Often true Christians feel outnumbered or out gunned by the unbelievers and ungodly influences around us. Unless we lean upon the Lord, our concerns become worry and the worry turns to […]

Being Rich – Proverbs 21:17

Proverbs 21:17 – He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich. Who doesn’t want to be rich?  Some may not want gobs of money to manage, but I believe all of us would like to be great in some way.  Today’s quote from Proverbs can […]

1 Corinthians 2:1-2 – And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.  For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. Have you ever met someone who just amazed you? Maybe you […]

Two Masters – Matthew 6:24

Matthew 6:24 – No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Many of us have an illusion that we can efficiently perform many tasks equally at the same […]

Herein Is Love – 1 John 4:10-11

1 John 4:10-11 – Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. Some scientists believe that the affection that we feel and attribute to a concept of […]

Is The Truth In You? – 1 John 2:4

1 John 2:4 – He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. I believe in the grace of God, but does grace allow us to do what we want without any regard to obedience? No. While our righteousness cannot obtain life by […]

A Sure Word – Numbers 23:19

Numbers 23:19 – God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good When you think of God, what comes to mind?  Do you imagine a stately old […]
