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

“It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.” (Psalm 119: 126).

How often we find the Psalms expressing precisely what is in our own hearts. Surely there cannot be a believer in our country in the present age, who does not have this cry in their hearts. The truth...

“The Humbling Demands of Marriage”

Written by

At the time of writing this, I am about to conduct a marriage. Having met with the young couple a few times, I have confidence, although they are not christians, they understand why they have chosen a church wedding rather than a much simpler procedure, such as a Registry wedding. They both believe...

We are hearing of extreme heat in some parts of the country. Although most of us enjoy the sun, sometimes it gets so intense that we have to look for some shade away from the direct heat of the sun to escape into.

Our title comes from a beautiful verse in the Bible: Isaiah 32, verse 2:

“And a...

Our title comes from 1 Corinthians 6: 19, 20: “Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost who is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own, for you are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit,  which are God’s”....

“Men loved Darkness rather than Light”

Written by

I am sorry for referring once again to our hedge (which is no longer there), but I am compelled to do so because of a further development. So please bear with me. Our title is a quote from John 3:19: “This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather...

“Resident, but not President?”

Written by

One of the most important matters in defining true christian faith is the nature of the relationship between the professing christian and Christ. In order to clarify this matter, the first thing that we have to answer is the overwhelmingly important question: are there two levels of christianity or...

“Christ’s Revulsion at Lukewarmness”

Written by

It is a strange thing that we love water and soft drinks to be ice cold, and tea or coffee to be piping hot, and that we recoil from all of these if they are neither cold nor hot, but lukewarm. As we shall see, the bible makes use of this strange phenomenon in a very powerful way to condemn...

Youth Renewed like the Eagle’s

Written by

As I age, I have less and less hair, but some things do not change. I still have to go to the barber’s  just as frequently as ever, and the cost is the same as if I had a full head of hair. There are four barbers in the shop, and I am happy to take the first one available; but I have to...

“My Peace I Give unto You”

Instinctively, most human being want to have peace, but few have it. Indeed it is difficult to have peace when the world is in such turmoil. This is especially true when our great institutions, such as our parliament, is in turmoil. Not so long ago there was a measure of respect for one another...

General Assembly Note

“Darkness to Light “

Written by

There is surely no contrast in human experience greater than that between darkness and light. It is a strange thing that it is more difficult to create total darkness than to create the brightest  light. I discovered this many years ago when I was trying to make a photographic darkroom in a...

“Barriers Removed”

Written by

Up until last Friday we had an eight-foot hedge bordering our front garden, considerably and progressively obscuring the view from our kitchen window. We had arranged to have two men come to take two feet off the top of the hedge, making it easier to trim. Almost as soon as the men began the job...

“Secrets”

Secrets are very much in the news at this present time. Every free country must of necessity have some way that high level discussions can take place freely, with the confidence that these discussions will forever remain secret. This function is served in the UK by the National Security Council,...

“Melody in the Heart”

Written by

Bird song is one of many gladsome things that God has put into this fallen world. I did not have much appreciation of  bird song before I became a christian. Since then that has greatly changed. I now find the whole world of nature full of things which speak of the Creator God, but for many...

“Spotless!”

Written by

The Song of Solomon is not a book that we usually associate with doctrine. It normally strikes us as a book that appeals to the emotions more than the mind. There is no other song  that gladdens the heart of the christian like this one; yet there is one doctrine which is displayed throughout...

“Lessons from the Attic”

Written by

Most houses in the UK have an attic. This is in response to the climate. In order to cope with so much wind and rain, especially during the winter, houses are built with ‘pitched’ roofs, rather than flat ones. The simplest ‘pitched’ roof is one where the roof is like an...

One of the great privileges of living in a rural area at this time of year is that the first lambs are beginning to appear. It really is a wonderful time which speaks so clearly of the goodness of God. The potential of one lamb is enormous; yet when they are just born they look so fragile, you...

“Perilous Times”

I have never felt so worried about the state of our nation as I do at this present moment. On this blog I have always tried to avoid expressing any political opinions, and that has not changed. What I have to say has more to say about God’s dealings with us as a nation than politics.

“Growing in Grace”

Written by

We use the expression, “Growing in Grace” quite frequently in christian fellowship, but often we do not have a clear idea of what it means. In fact it is something that is very difficult to define. We read that,”Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and...

“Hear, and your soul shall live”

Written by

Sometimes, in robust discussion, one person says to another, “I hear what you are saying”. This of course does not simply mean that the other person is speaking loud enough to be heard, but that the first clearly understands the point the other is making. In life in general it is very...

Holiday Thoughts (3)

Written by

“Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:11)

We must meet temptation with deadness, that is with unresponsiveness. The slightest response from us is the beginning of the slippery slope.
