Proverbs
Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man.

Proverbs 3:3-4

The Word
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

John 1:1-5

Humility (3)

“The humble man feels no jealousy–or envy. He can praise God when others are preferred and blessed before him. He can bear to hear others praised and himself forgotten, because in God’s presence he has learnt to say with Paul, “I am nothing.” He has received the spirit of Jesus, who pleased not Himself, and sought not His own honor, as the spirit of his life.”

Seeing

This is how I was and how I still can be at times even though I don’t ever want to be at all.  It is getting less the more I walk and the more I learn to let go my life and understand with the Lord’s help, but at times, I rear up in myself and God has to put His finger on my head and hold me  still and so I jangle about like a wooden doll and He waits patiently for me to stop and to really see what I am doing. I thank God with all my heart, that I can fall on my face and repent in tears before Him, only because of what Jesus did through going to the Cross.

He picks me up off the floor, dusts me off, wipes my tears away and on we go together, My Lord and I.

Trust and Obey

Wednesday, October 21, 2009 Trust and Obey 10.21.09 J.A. Matteson

“The LORD said to Moses, ‘How long will this people spurn Me? And how long will they not believe in Me….’” Number 14:11

The Lord is holy, dwelling in inapproachable light, transcendent in wisdom and power, condescending in grace to establish His covenant of redemption to a wayward and ungrateful race. Speaking to His servant, Moses, two vexing questions are posed. With regard to the first, to spurn the Lord through unbelief is to hold Him in contempt, for what a man truly believes about the Lord is not revealed in his speech, but by his actions, and what he does—or does not do—in relation to the clear Word from the Lord in Scripture.

Pilgrim, you profess your belief in the power of prayer and the prayer of power—do you pray? You profess the Lord as your provider—do you [Continue reading…]

Quote (11) - C.H. Spurgeon

Want of depth, want of sincerity, want of zeal in religion this is the want of our times. Want of an eye to God in religion, lack of sincere dealing with ones soul, neglect of using the lance with our hearts, neglect of the search warrant which God gives out against sin, carelessness concerning living upon Christ, much reading about Him, much talking about Him but too little feeding on His flesh and drinking of His blood. These are the causes of a tottering profession and a baseless hope.

Consequences Of Non-Expositional Preaching (9)

Continuing our series that explores and highlights the consequences of not preaching expositionally.

It prevents the preacher from being the voice of God on every issue of his time.

Jeremiah 8:9 says, “The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; so what wisdom do they have?” When I speak, I want to be God’s messenger. I’m not interested in exegeting what some psychologist, or business guru, or college professor has to say about an issue. My people don’t need my opinion; they need to hear what God has to say. If we preach as Scripture commands us, there should be no ambiguity about whose message is coming from the pulpit.

Praise to the Lord

Praise the LORD! Psalm 148 Praise to the LORD from Creation

1 Praise the LORD!

Praise the LORD from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights! 2 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! 3 Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light! 4 Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens!

5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, For He commanded and they were created. 6 He also established them forever and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away.

7 Praise the LORD from the earth, You great sea creatures and all the depths; 8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word; 9 Mountains and all hills; Fruitful trees and all cedars; 10 Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and flying fowl; 11 Kings of the earth and [Continue reading…]

Coming to Christ

John 6:37

“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Coming to Christ

We read that Jesus said–“Him that comes to me I will never cast out.”

What does “coming to Christ” mean? It means that movement of the soul which takes place when a man, feeling his sins, and finding out that he cannot save himself, hears of Christ, applies to Christ, trusts in Christ, lays hold on Christ, and leans all his weight on Christ for salvation. When this happens, a man is said, in Scripture language, to “come” to Christ.

What did our Lord mean by saying–“I will never cast him out”? He meant that He will not refuse to save any one who comes to Him, no matter what he may have been. His past sins may have been [Continue reading…]
