Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalm 119:105). In sin, men “grope in the dark without light” (Job 12:25), stumble, and fall. No wonder that darkness brings danger, fear, and death. The Word of God shines as “a lamp unto my feet,” and makes possible our being…

Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame (1 Corinthians 15:34). Choices have consequences, and we, like the Corinthian Christians, have the ability to control the choices we make. If we choose, we can seek the knowledge of God, turn from sin, and…

Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God (Leviticus 20:7). Leviticus contrasts the clean with the unclean, the holy with the unholy. The conclusion is clear: those who serve God must be holy! In a vision, Isaiah heard one of the seraphims cry out: “Holy, holy, holy, is the…

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe (1 Timothy 4:10). A key word in the book of Psalms is “trust.” The Psalmist often suffered, even faced death, but he maintained his trust in God, and…

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children (Hosea 4:6). How interested are we in the knowledge of God’s Law? How carefully…

But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father (Mark 13:32). What a joy-filled thought that we shall see the King some day! Of that wonderful day, there is no doubt. The Lord promised to His followers: “I go to…

…Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you (Jeremiah 7:23). The loving Creator knows what men need to be happy. For it to “be well” with us, we must…

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest (Luke 10:2). Jesus said these words to His disciples at a time when He knew there were many ready to hear their message.…

For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments (Ezra 7:10). Those who preach and teach the Word of God realize the seriousness of that work (James 3:1). In Ezra 7:10 we are privileged to see Ezra’s plan as…

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished (2 Peter 2:9). These inspired words from Peter remind us of what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:13. God promised there to make for us a way to escape temptation. Peter’s…
