(Genesis 12:3), “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Christians today probably do not do enough blessing. Yes, we say a blessing at meals or on special church occasions. But we often seem to be lax in offering […]
(Ps.116:2), “Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live” Love is the child of gratitude. Love grows as gratitude is felt and then breaks out into praise and thanksgiving to God. I love the Lord because He “hath heard the voice of my weeping […]
(2Peter 1:4), “by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” Our human minds can not imagine the exceedingly great and precious things that God has in store for the […]
Heaven (Matthew 7:21), “Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord!” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the person who does what my Father in heaven wants.” This is a sobering concept to those who choose to follow their own paths, and to ignore the paths that God has given for us to […]

As we think of mercies past, the heart is inwardly moved to gratitude. –E.M. Bounds I love to think on mercies past, And future good implore; And all my cares and sorrows […]

Peacemakers: (Titus 3:2), “Believers shouldn’t curse anyone or be quarrelsome, but they should be gentle and show courtesy to everyone.” Can you imagine the amount of work we could get done for Christ if we stopped complaining about everyone else and focused on what we need to be doing.
