So Many Things for Which to Be Thankful

Here in the United States, this Thursday is our annual Thanksgiving holiday. Millions of people will celebrate this day in our nation, but those who know Jesus Christ as their Savior are especially overwhelmed with reasons to be thankful. Allow me just a brief opportunity to express, along with the psalmist, why "I will praise [the Lord's] Name for ever and ever" (Psa. 145:2). I am certainly grateful for the love of God which motivated Him to give "His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (Jn. 3:16).

Real Enemies in a Real War

Even before the tragic terrorist events of September 11, 2001, discerning believers in Christ recognized the reality that the religions of this world are at war, not simply with each other, but against the one, true God Himself. A Russian airliner was recently blown up in flight killing over 200 passengers. In Paris, over 100 were just murdered, and hundreds more seriously injured, in six coordinated attacks in public venues. In both instances, Islamic terrorists claim responsibility. These are the latest expressions of a conflict that has raged since the fall in Eden.

Our Attitude in Prayer

PROSTRATION. In prayer we come into the throne room of the Majesty on high, therefore, “Be not rash with thy mouth and let not thy heart be hasty to utter anything before God." Abraham, our example in importunity, is equally our type of humility. While he so persistently pressed his intercession, see how reverently he deprecated his boldness: "Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes.” And David, when he went in before the Lord, said, "Who am I, O Lord God?

From Darkness…To Light!

In God’s Word to Israel through the prophet Isaiah, the Lord makes a great contrast between the works of darkness and the true Light that is offered to mankind. God makes it clear that those who do not speak according to His Word walk in darkness, are agents of darkness, and must be avoided. In contrast, those who proclaim the truth of His Word are practicing and proclaiming the Light of Life, and God’s people must receive such words and walk faithfully according to them.
