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

When Wicked Men are God’s Hand.

Written by

Grace: the kindness of God

The Rich Mercy of God

Superabundant Love.

Written by

The Song of Solomon is a love song: it describes in beautiful words and word pictures the mutual love between Christ and the believer. One of the most beautiful things about this love is its mutuality. It is always two-way. Christ loves the believer, and the believer loves Christ. This does not...

The Brother in the Field

Written by

The parable of the ‘Prodigal Son’ which we looked at last week would be far more appropriately titled, ‘The Parable of the Two Sons’. Indeed, the Lord introduces the parable with the words, “A certain man had two sons” (Luke 15: 11). There is no doubt that this...

The Love that Never Gives up

Written by

Sometimes we find ourselves asking the question, Why is God bothering with me at all when He must so often be disappointed with me? I forget Him so often, but He never forgets me. I often wander from the pathway He has laid out for me in His word,  but He, in His own way draws me back. I often...

Having spoken at length in the great salvation chapter, Romans 8, about the wonders of God’s salvation, it is as if Paul is compelled in verse 31 to ask the question, “What shall we then say to these to these things?” He begins to answer with another question in the second part of...

Goals for 2017

Written by

2017 is already nearly a week old. It is time for us to set our goals for the year, otherwise we will slip into the empty mindset that 2017 is ‘just another year’. This may do for the unbeliever, but such a view is hardly compatible with the christian faith. The christian life should be...
