Lifesaving Station or Clubhouse?

Read more...
On a dangerous seacoast notorious for shipwrecks, there was a crude little lifesaving station. The building was just a hut, and there was only one boat, but a few devoted members kept a constant watch over the sea, and with no thought for themselves, they went out day or night tirelessly searching for the lost.

The Cross and the Empty Grave

Read more...
“God has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” (2 Timothy 1:9-10)

The cross of Calvary and the Resurrection of Jesus have become a sure foundation and solid anchor for my faith. Years ago, when I bowed my knees before the Lord and confessed all my sins to Him, the power of His Resurrection worked complete forgiveness and release of my guilt caused by all my trespasses. I am very thankful to God for eternal life in Christ. If Jesus had not died and risen from the grave, our faith would indeed be senseless and in vain.

God is unchanging. He stands firmly by His promises. His character provides a rock-solid foundation for us in the changing seasons of life.

God is faithful! The apostle Paul wrote these words in his second letter to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 1:18). He had found himself in a difficult situation and God had wonderfully granted him help and guidance. We can clearly see the great thankfulness and joy contained in these words; Paul was thanking God for His faithfulness.

Many of us bemoan the fact that Christmas has become much too commercialized and that Christ is being left out of Christmas. It is an inarguable fact that the retail sector makes most of its money at Christmastime and that even those who are celebrating Christmas as the birthday of the Savior tend to get caught up in all the rushing around and buying, returning and buying again. Christmas becomes a time of high stress, and while we deplore this, the fact is that there often doesn’t seem to be much we can do about it. Have we gradually accepted that this is what Christmas is all about?

Counting Our Blessings

Read more...

God is good! His kindness exceeds every boundary our logic or imagination might set. He distributes His physical blessings to all people, and yet He has set aside special spiritual gifts for those people who love Him without reservation, and follow in His ways.

We were at a prayer meeting. The brothers and sisters of the congregation were encouraged to share a testimony to God’s glory. As one after another shared their testimony, it became evident that they were all hinged on one thought: “blessings.”

One said, “My daily prayer is that God would give me His blessing. I have no joy in life when the weeks pass by without a blessing from the Lord. When I am blessed, I am happy. My face shines with joy and others are curious to know the source of my joy.” In response to this comment, another brother said, “It all depends on the extent of the blessings God bestows on us” – I believe the brother said it correctly. Now, what exactly are blessings?
