For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). Likely the most well-known Scripture in the Bible. What a thrilling message it brings. God did not just love us, He SO loved us. He did not just…

Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble (Job 14:1). This life has so many blessings. God gives us more than we ever deserve, and we should be thankful for every blessing. However, along with the blessings, there are pains, struggles, and difficulties. Job summarizes this earthly life…

Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest (John 4:35). I just went along, but I didn’t enjoy it. It was when my parents got invitations to pick corn from…

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). How much do you really trust God?

O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever (Psalm 107:1). Probably the simplest song we sing is “God is So Good.” The words are so simple, in fact, that we can forget just how profound that thought is. God is good through-and-through. When we speak of a…

For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day (2 Timothy 1:12). Christians too often are ashamed. We may not be ashamed inwardly, but…

And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, what the LORD saith unto me, that will I speak (1 Kings 22:14). After the city of Ramoth-Gilead fell into the hands of the Syrians, King Ahab wanted it back and asked Jehoshaphat to help him. Jehoshaphat evidently suspected something wasn’t right because he asks for a prophet…

For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20). Have you ever received news that you just could not hold in? Maybe it was the birth of a grandchild, aceing a difficult test, or winning an award. No matter what, you were going to share the news. In Acts…

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). The proper training of our children is a God-assigned, individual responsibility assigned primarily to fathers that cannot be forgotten. The Hebrews writer taught that nothing was more important than the rearing of…
