2015/07 GOD’S GREAT LOVE

2015/07 God's Great Love Love is not just something that God has, it is what God is. It is His very nature. So then, the Father is love, the Son is love and the Holy Spirit is love. We know that God is also light (1 John 1:5). Light speaks of everything that is the

2013/05 PERPETUAL PRAYER

Prayer is the life of real religion. It proves the existence and tests the condition of our spiritual life. As a true barometer of the soul, it reflects the state of the heart.

2015/07 THANK-YOU MR RAIKES

2015/07 Thank-you Mr Raikes! I  suspect that at your Sunday School last Lord’s Day, nobody thanked the Lord for Robert Raikes. I would further venture to say that the name of Robert Raikes is virtually unknown!  Yet he was the man responsible for the organisation  of Sunday Schools in 1780 and what he devised then

2013/07 WINNING OVER WORRY

Worry and care are frequent lodgers in our minds and hearts. They come in uninvited and bring with them so much disorder and distress, and not infrequently, depression of spirit.

2015/09 GOD’S NAME IN CHRIST

2015/09 God’s Name in Christ The name of God is seen in its brightest and best character in Jesus Christ, for he is God “manifest in the flesh” (1Timothy 3:16). Scripture often uses the word ‘name’ in reference to a person. The Psalmist said: “Not unto us, not unto us, but unto thy name be

2016/01 A HOLY PEOPLE

,

The Lord desires that His people live for the glory of his Name. By the power of His grace we are under His rule in Christ and can say, “O Lord our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us; but by thee only will we make mention of thy name” (Isaiah 26:13)

2015/11 FOR THIS PURPOSE

2015/11 For this Purpose The first gospel message ever revealed promised the manifestation (appearance) of a Saviour (Genesis 3:15). There would be One “manifested to take away our sins” (1 John 3:5) and to Him all the prophets gave witness (Acts10:43). Moses prophesies of Him as the great Prophet that God would raise up like

2013/09 THE PRECIOUSNESS OF CHRIST

2013/09 The Preciousness of Christ ‘Unto you therefore which believe He is precious.’  1 Peter 2:7 Christ is only precious to a believing heart. Nothing but saving faith can render Him so. The natural heart has no delight in Him and can have no communion with Him.  Faith is the sole spiritual faculty that discerns

2016/03 EXHALTED SAVIOUR

2016/03 The Exhalted Saviour “Thou hast ascended on high” Psalm 68:18 We rejoice in a risen and exalted Saviour. It was ordained that He should suffer and then “enter into his glory” (Luke 24:26). His ascension to the throne of glory is cause for great joy and gladness among all the redeemed in heaven and

2013/11 THE DAYSPRING

2013/11 The Dayspring ‘The dayspring from on high hath visited us.’  Luke 1:78 There is only one sun in creation and only one Sun in grace. Christ, “the light of the world” (John 8:12) is “the Sun of righteousness” (Malachi 4:2). Peter calls Him “the day star” (2 Peter 1:19) and John spoke of  “the
