Blessings Of God’s Word

Blessings Of God’s Word

Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, is a meditation on God’s word using more than half a dozen expressions to describe it; how many of these can you find in its verses? This Psalm is the inspiration behind Rose’s poetry for today, which focuses largely on the impact the word of God should […]

Passing Away

Passing Away

1 John 2:17 “And the world is passing away, and the lust of it.” The world referred to here is not the physical substance upon which we walk and call earth. Rather it is the arrangement or decoration of the age under the domination of Satan, 1 John 5:19 and St. John 14:30. Satan will […]

God Promises To Be With You

God Promises To Be With You

This world is filled with terror, anxiety, uncertainties, and disasters; if our eyes are focused on these, they can become overwhelming. Do you remember the story of Peter walking on the water? When his eyes focused on the surroundings, instead of on Jesus, he began to sink, Matthew 14:30. God has promised to be with […]

Service In The Kingdom

Service In The Kingdom

Today we are looking at another aspect of the kingdom of heaven, which is kingdom service. Hebrews 13: 15 which we touched on in the meditation about worship in the kingdom, draws our attention to the praise and worship aspect of living as part of that kingdom, but then verse 16 directs our attention to […]

Worship In The Kingdom

Worship In The Kingdom

We are continuing to look at various aspects of the kingdom of God (or of heaven). Being part of a kingdom means living by the regulations of that kingdom. In Hebrews 12:28 we read, “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace by which we may serve God […]

Treasure Of An Inheritance

Treasure Of An Inheritance

An inheritance is something of value that is received from an ancestor, predecessor, or friend; usually by virtue of relationship with them, rather than being earned. Perhaps Paul had family inheritance in mind when writing in 1 Corinthians 12:14, “the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.” […]

Greatness In The Kingdom: Part 2

Greatness In The Kingdom: Part 2

Today we will look at another “trademark” of greatness in the kingdom of heaven, which is obedience to God’s words and commandments. In Matthew 5:19 the NLT says, “…But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Obedience implies submission, submission not only to do those […]

Treasure Of Faith

Treasure Of Faith

Another treasure in God’s treasure field is that of faith. In Mark 11:22 Jesus said “Have faith in God”, or as the King James margin says “Have the faith of God.” Then Romans 12:3 states that “God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.” God plants the “seed” of faith in each of […]

Treasure Of His Grace

Treasure Of His Grace

While treasure can be defined as gold, silver, jewels, riches, Etc. there are other treasures that are more valuable than these. They are the spiritual and eternal treasures freely given to us by God. In her poem this week Rose has in view the treasure of God’s grace. This grace according to the Greek of […]

Treasure

Treasure

The Bible speaks of treasure in numerous places. Two identical verses appear in Matthew 6:21 and Luke 12:34, both are the words of Jesus Himself saying, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” So real treasure is what we view with the highest value. The Greek word translated treasure that is […]
