To whom be glory for ever… Amen!

Romans 11:36 – For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. “To whom be glory forever.” This should be the single desire of the Christian. All other wishes must be subservient and tributary to this one. The Christian may wish for prosperity in his […]

Remember What Jesus Did For You

The Heritage of the Believer

Isaiah 54:17 – No weapon formed against you shall prosper. As a believer in Jesus, you have certain privileges because you belong to Christ.

God of Mercy

2 Samuel 22:51 – “He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed.” If there was one person in the Old Testament who truly understood the mercy of God, it was King David. The ruddy shepherd boy with no proper qualification was anointed king. He slew a giant and […]

The Real Superhero

Jeremiah 32:17 – “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee.” Cartoons, movies and comic books that feature superheroes are always a big hit with kids, and even adults. While these characters are fictional and […]
