Take time to give thanks

We are now entering the holiday season, which traditionally kicks off when we celebrate Thanksgiving. I feel we should remind ourselves of the importance of this time of giving thanks. Living in the United States is one of the most blessed opportunities anyone can experience. As we observe and enjoy the benefits of this great nation, we can only say thanks to the one who provides us with such bountiful blessings.

True believers will lead God's life

Ephesians 1:4-5 says, "Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love."

True believers must live out God's life

In Ephesians, the Holy Spirit, in and through Paul, reveals what Jesus Christ did for every believer. Every faithful believer has life only in Jesus Christ, meaning believers live and act in the Lord's sphere. Believers have unions with Christ, fellowship with Him, relationships with Him and they are intimate with Him. Believers are in love with Jesus Christ and they fall more in love with Him daily.

God is infinite in power, love, justice

What a spectacle of God's power must have been shown during the days of creation – the shifting of the land masses, the forming of the seas and water ways, the great lights set to rule day and night to control the seasons and the years as the great designer made a world that was ready for man to inhabit; the plant and animal life formed and given to man to have dominion over them (Gen. 1:28, 29).

Find purpose and peace in the Lord

We have had some rather extreme weather in this calendar year. Back in the winter it rained and rained, and then rained some more. Then during the summer the heat was absolutely intense, and we had long periods where there was no rain.

Stone movers wanted by God

"Jesus said, 'Take ye away the stone.' Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, 'Lord, by this time he stinketh, for he hath been dead four days.' Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, 'Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.' And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth.' And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin.

Come now, let us reason together: Part 2

Last week, we looked at Isaiah 1:18 and saw that God was willing to give his people an opportunity to come to their senses and turn back to him. Those people failed to heed God's warnings. Surely, man can learn from their mistakes (Romans 15:4).
