But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

“Hurry!”

Written by

Last week I met a christian brother, whom I have known for a number of years, but do not often see as we live some distance apart. It was for me a very precious moment as I hold my friend in very high esteem. In the circumstances we did not have long to talk, but the few moments given to us...

“The Night Cometh”

Written by

It is good, just after the turn of the year, to see the days lengthening and the nights shortening. It is so easy for us to forget that this cycle of the seasons and of day and night will not go on forever. There is a night coming to which there will be no end, for those who have not received...

“God’s Time is Now”

Written by

It is a long time since I sat in a Latin class, but occasionally my interest was stimulated by a little snippet here or there, which resulted in something sticking in my mind with incredible permanence. One day the teacher introduced us to the little word ‘cras‘ meaning simply,...

“Passing on the Great Gift”

Written by

We have passed the time of year when we give and receive gifts. Any gifts we received, we accepted with thanks, and we held on to them, whether they were suitable or not. It would be a terrible insult to the giver, if we ‘off-loaded’ a gift we received on to someone else, for whatever...

Christian Fellowship

Written by

A few days ago I had reason to go into town, and was making my way through a big department store when, happily, I met a christian whom I had not seen for some time.

Purifying through Trial

Written by

One of the privileges I had in a previous employment was the opportunity I often had, of working with gold, a metal of great beauty, and easy to work with. Because gold is such an expensive material, use was made of every tiny bit. Even left-overs from other jobs were easily purified. In fact the...

“The Exclusive Song”

Written by

Once again, if we are spared, we will soon enter a New Year. It is a time for thankfulness that we have lived to see it. It is often an opportunity, or excuse, for freshening things up: new car, new dress, new suit, shoes, etc.  In Revelation 14:3 we read of a very strange new thing: It is a...

“The Heritage of the Christian”

Written by

When one becomes a christian, many things change. We become members of the huge worldwide brotherhood or family who, along with those already in heaven, are all one in Christ Jesus. He is and ever will be the focus of their adoration.

However, when one receives Christ as their Lord and Saviour he or...

“Being in the Place of Duty”

Written by

My wife has a feathered friend who comes to our door every morning looking for his daily ‘ration’. This ‘friend’ is a robin, and he loves cheese, especially if it is a vintage cheese, which we sometimes have. I am not sure if he has refined tastes by nature or is he just...

God’s Short-lived Anger

Written by

All who get RightWithGod through Jesus Christ immediately enter into a Father/child relationship with God. It is of the utmost importance for the believer that he or she knows the reality of this relationship for themselves. God is a good Father, but like any good earthly father, He is not an...

“The Door was Shut”

Written by

Sometimes when travelling by ship we hear an announcement saying, ‘last call for breakfast, lunch or dinner’, depending on the time of day. I like to eat when I am travelling on the car ferry. There is usually plenty of space to enjoy one’s meal, it passes the time and the food is...

“From Turmoil to Peace”

Written by

In a fallen world there is always trouble, unrest and turmoil. The sensitivity of human nature is such that we do not take kindly to circumstances or changes of circumstances which take away any peace that we have, and plunge us into a state of turmoil. The natural man’s answer to this...

“God’s Hedge”

Written by

We have a fairly large hedge at the front of our house which needs a good trim once a year, and last week I ventured forth with my hedge trimmer to do the necessary and bring my hedge under control for another year, if the Lord permits.

A Most Generous Gospel Promise

Happily there are many wonderful gospel invitations in the bible. These invitations are presented to unbelievers in the form of promises made to all who believe on Christ. One of the simplest is the one made by Paul and Silas to the Philippian jailor: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and...

“Jonah’s Experience at the Hand of God”

Written by

A few days ago, I received a photograph from a friend. It was a picture of his wife in a small boat holding a huge fish which she had just caught. It was almost as big as herself. As I looked, I wondered how she managed to get it into the boat without being pulled into the water herself! This led...

“The Root of the Matter”

Perhaps the most important question that the professing christian and the seeker continually ask themselves is, ‘Am I saved?’ Or, as we sometimes say,  ‘Have I got the root of the matter in me?’  What is the “root of the matter”?

“Living Dangerously”

Written by

There are some who live dangerously for a living. It is a choice they make, perhaps because they like that kind of life, but more likely because they get paid a lot of money for doing a dangerous job.  However, some in our churches are living more dangerously than any of these, although they...

The prospect of heaven is the believer’s ultimate hope. The christian is sometimes accused of being so heavenly minded that he or she is of no earthly use. I say, happy is the christian who is thus accused. It indicates that they are living out the ultimate reality of their faith, which is...

In Luke 23:43 Jesus says to the penitent thief, “Verily I say unto you, Today you shall be with me in paradise.” This is the best known reference to paradise in the New Testament, but there are other other two: Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:4 tells us how he was “caught up into...
