Submission

Submission

  It seems that the Judahites Thought of themselves as God’s chosen race that would always experience God’s good blessings, failing to keep in mind that those blessings are only attained to by abiding in and keeping His covenant. Because of blatant sin, moral decline, and rebellion, Babylon came against Jerusalem and captured it bringing […]

Restoration

Restoration

Peter loved the Lord very dearly, yet in a moment of weakness he stumbled. Jesus in that wonderful foreknowledge of God knew this would happen and warned Peter in advance, adding, “I have prayed for you that your faith should not fail” Luke 22:31-32. What a wonderful thought that if we stumble in a moment […]

Followers Of Jesus

Followers Of Jesus

As followers of the Lord Jesus we have been commissioned to carry on His ministry here on earth while He prepares a place for us in heaven (John 14:2-3). This is illustrated to us in the parable of the minas in Luke19:11-37 in which the nobleman equipped his servants and instructed them to “Do business […]

With Eyes Of Understanding

With Eyes Of Understanding

Ephesians is a powerful book revealing the mystery of the church, giving us insight into our position in, and our walk with, Christ.

From the moment of salvation we all live […]

The Bible clearly shows us that God delights in His people speaking to one another about Him and His goodness (see Malachi 3:16). And not only within the four walls of the church, but to the people in the world around us: “Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His […]

A Fragrant Garden

A Fragrant Garden

A garden is a place of beauty, and productivity. God has a garden with two aspects; the first is that into which we enter and find the beauty, peace, rest, and refreshment of His presence as we fellowship with Him. It is here that we are fashioned and incorporated into His garden as the seed […]

The Shepherd And The Sheep

The Shepherd And The Sheep

Sheep comprise a large part of the agricultural life and livelihood of the Near Eastern people, including the Hebrews, and are mentioned in the Bible more than 500 times. They are also a very fitting symbol of the people of God. David, the Psalmist, and king of Israel, had been a shepherd in his youth […]

Powerful Words

Powerful Words

You will notice in today’s poem (written by Rose Hill’s brother, Everett, as he reflected on Psalm 46) an oft-repeated phrase, “I am”. This is not only the title and name by which God introduced Himself to Moses and the people of Israel in Exodus 3:14, but it was and remains a present-tense statement for […]
