The Author and Finisher

  “Looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our Faith. . .” Hebrews 12:2a      If He started it, He’ll finish it.      Quite often we think that we come to God on our own.  We reach a point of frustration or desperation and cry out to God even as a seasick sailor out on the high seas (Ps. 107:26-30).  But, nothing could be further from the Truth, dear Pilgrim—for it is the Holy Spirit Who “convicts of sin, the need of Righteousness and Judgment to come” (Jn. 16:8-11).  And, He is......

Give Him the glory!

  “Give unto the LORD the Glory due unto His Name.  Bring an offering and come before Him.  Worship the Lord in the beauty of Holiness.” I Chronicles 16:29      When we realize His Greatness, we’ll find ourselves overwhelmed by His Grace.      “The Glory due unto His Name.”      When David uttered those words in his Anthem of Praise to the LORD God, he knew the God of Abraham was unlike any other god. Other cultures worshipped graven images of silver and stone wrought by their own hands; but, he knew our God—the......

Our Promise - Keeping God!

  “Being confident of this very thing, that He Who has begun a good work in you will perform it until the Day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6      If He started it, He will complete it.      Our God is no quitter; neither is He a haphazard, lackadaisical, irresponsible Being Who soon tires of His Plans or changes His Mind.  Unlike us, He foresees what lies ahead. . .the trials and storms we’ll encounter. . .the bumps in the road. . .the hills and the valleys. . .and is never caught......

A God-sized Love

  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life.” John 3:16      As someone once said, “When God loves, He loves a world; when He gives, He gives His Son.”      Who can fathom this most famous verse in the Bible—the “Gospel in a nutshell,” as someone called it—that’s simple enough for a child to understand, but so profound that even the greatest scholars cannot grasp it?      Truly, it’s beyond us.      It tells......

On Risk and Reward

  “So Abram departed as the LORD had spoken unto him—and Lot went with him.  And, Abram was 75-years-old when he departed out of Haran.” Genesis 12:4      If we’re to experience the Lord is His fullness, we must walk by Faith, not sight.      Anyone who dabbles in the stock market knows a proven rule-of-thumb is this:  The higher the risk, the higher the potential reward—but also the higher risk of losing everything.  That’s why some people “hit it big,” while others “lose the farm.”  The question is, “How much are you......
