Being Used

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28) If you speak to a man of God who has been in His service for a lengthy period of time, or read any number of books written long ago by men who died in His service, you will eventually come to the knowledge that, at least in the lives of what is called the “common Christian,” these men had little rest. To be called and chosen by the Almighty is to be used by the Almighty, yet most do not desire to be used fully. Not because they have any real love for the world and its ways, but because of what could best be termed as prior obligations. Family, employment, goals set they hope to achieve. It is not a lack of love for the Lord Jesus Christ as much

Losing Sight of the Path

“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:” (1st Peter 2:21) I would like to continue in a conversation with you that my lovely wife and I were discussing this morning, that of the work of a detective, a Spiritual detective, if you will. How are we to see the footsteps of the Lord if we are on rocky ground, if we are close to the shoreline where every wave washes them away, if the emissaries of our adversary steal the breadcrumbs that our Savior has left for us to follow. What does it take for a man of God to be a proficient Spiritual detective when the Lord is not walking beside us, but has gone far ahead? Clue number one might be, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow

Count the Cost

You read Matthew 19:26, “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” But the impossible does not happen. You read how we can do all things through Christ, how thousands were healed, and yet for you the pain continues. You read how we are to follow, to obey, to remain faithful, and yet life seems to be falling apart. Continuance in obedience no matter the circumstances or the possible consequences to yourself, no matter the level of physical pain, of mental anguish, no matter what arrives in your life, is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. For some whom the Almighty has chosen to draw a little closer to Himself, they must every day, sometimes many times a day, be as the prodigal son and come to themselves. The mind must reject the pain and frustration, it must

Is The Light In You?

“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” (Prov. 4:18) I would ask you to ask yourself this question, and contemplate your answer well, if those who have been saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, those who have been born-again were visible to the eye in this life by a brightness, a shining light that emitted from them that all could see, who would you gravitate towards as you passed through your time here on earth, those who did shine, or those who did not? I will add this to your contemplation, in those whom the light of the Lord was visible, would you feel at greater ease with those who shined the brightest, or with those in whom that light was dimmer? “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
