Being Content

Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” Hebrews 13:5 (NASB) Yesterday I read a post by Mitch Teemley called “Fairness Is Overrated” which spoke about when all is…

Chosen

You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit… John 15:16a (NASB) Recently our daughter applied for a new job, she was one of 140 applicants which were whittled down to a shortlist of seven contenders. We were all proud when she was chosen for…

Consecration

 Then Joshua said to the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” Joshua 3:5 (NASB) As a lad I wanted to join the Royal Air Force, more specifically as a dog handler. My dad’s stories of military service had convinced me that a life of honour and respect was for me. Sadly…

Devotional Treasures Format

MONDAY through FRIDAY – Devotional Gems SATURDAY  – Bible Study (Series or Single) SUNDAY – Guest blogs (Invites are open at present).

The Servant King – Part 1

13 Behold, My servant will prosper,He will be high and lifted up and greatly exalted.14 Just as many were astonished at you,So His appearance was marred more than any manAnd His form more than the sons of men.15 Thus He will sprinkle many nations,Kings will shut their mouths on account of Him;For what had not been told them they will see,And what they had not…

Propitiation

 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10 (NKJV) In yesterday’s post I gave what I hope was a fair explanation of sanctification, which is in a group of words not often used or heard in the 21st…

Sanctification

But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, 1 Corinthians 1:30 (NASB) Today I want to share my thoughts from my recent study on the subject of sanctification. I heard much about this word in my younger days, mainly in reading the teachings of General William Booth in…

Fakes & Frauds

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?”Matthew 7:15-16 (NASB) Yesterday I discovered yesterday an error in my knowledge, I had believed the Shard in London…

There Is A Green Hill Far Away

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NASB) “There Is A Green Hill Far Away” by Mrs. Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895) is one of my favourite hymns. Mrs Alexander wrote many great hymns such as “All Creatures Great and Small.” She…

No Compromise

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals. 1 Corinthians 6:9 (NASB) As I read the book of Hosea this morning about the sad unfaithfulness of Israel towards God, it reminded me a news item I had read earlier…
