Homeward Bound

Mark Guy Pearse was a preacher, lecturer and author who lived in Britain during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. He was also a great personal visitor and it is said that his visits brought cheer to many a suffering child of God. Sometimes the one visited could not bear to listen to much talk. Mr. Pearse would take from his pocket a sheet of paper, and draw a distant landscape on one side. Then as the invalid closely watched, a sketch of the homeland was drawn on the other and a wide stretch of sea between. Then a bird, tired of flying, but heading steadily toward the home side. Only two words were needed to make the meaning clear: “HOMEWARD BOUND.” Mr Pearse would leave the glowing thought of the heavenly home before the dimming eyes of the weary, travel-worn Christian.

Maybe you, as a young believer, are weary and discouraged with life. Keep heaven and home before your soul. There is nothing that will encourage our hearts like the reality of the Lord’s coming. “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure” (1 John 3:3).

Dear Young Christian:

“Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

I’m not much for catchy cliches, but I did see a church marquee with the following saying, and it caught my eye:

7 days without prayer makes 1 weak!

Yes, to go without praying will make a person very weak spiritually. As another week starts and you head out the door to your various activities, don’t leave your room without spending a little time in prayer, asking for the help of God your Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Then as you go about the day, remember to look to the Lord in every situation. “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:18). We are no more able for the small things of life than the big things apart from prayer.

We all want power, whether it’s our vehicle, our physical strength, our influence, etc. But there is only one way to have spiritual power, and that is through the resource of prayer.

Your Christian Friend,

Jim Hyland

By Faith

“We see Jesus, who was made a little lower than
the angels for the suffering of death, crowned
with glory and honor”
(Hebrews 2:9).

Faith sees what people can’t. By faith we see the Lord honored and glorified for His faithfulness unto death. The Lord was hated, mistreated, rejected and crucified on earth. Now in heaven He is loved, worshipped and honored. Remember, it was “God, that raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory” (1 Peter 1:21).

While we look back to the cross and remember the mighty work of atonement, yet we look up by faith and worship, praise and thank the Lord as a risen, ascended, glorified man at the right hand of God. “We see Jesus,” not with the natural eye as those who saw Him when He was here in this world, but with the eye of faith. It is the delight of God the Father to have us honor the one who He has honored. “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name” (Philippians 2:9).

Can you see Him this way todayby faith?

New Management

Have you ever walked past a restaurant or store and noticed a sign in the window, UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT? This sign is to let people know that the place has changed ownership and improvements can be expected. But have you ever heard of people being under new management? That is something that has been happening since the beginning of Christianity.

The Bible has many examples of people who came under new management. Saul of Tarsus became the Apostle Paul as a result of what took place on the road to Damascus in Acts 9. Later he was used of God to pen the words, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

When a person gets saved it is not just an overhaul, a patch up job, or a renovation. No, they become a totally new person because of the work of Calvary. “For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Monthly Question Page

Q. How can I know who is the one the Lord has for me to marry?

A. The way to knowing God’s mind in this most important step is the same as in every other matter in our Christian life, whether small or great. It is determined by prayer and quiet waiting upon the Lord in communion and fellowship, seeking His face and searching His living Word.

However, remember that the first and most necessary step to knowing God’s mind is to have no will of our own in the matter. When our wills are inactive, God can then show us His will. Then, and only then, can we “prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2). At that time the guidance of His eye can be clearly seen and His voice distinctly heard communicating His mind. Like Abraham’s servant, who was sent to get a bride for Isaac, your experience too will be, “I being in the way, the Lord led me” (Genesis 24:27).

Another good Scripture to keep in mind is, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Your Name

“I know thee by name” (Exodus 33:13,17).

It’s amazing but true. In the Lord’s eyes you are not just part of the crowdor worse yet, just a social security number or impersonal statistic easily looked up on a computer. No, you are an individualwith a nameknown and loved by the Lord Jesus. He knows you by name; He calls you by name; your name is written in the Lamb’s book of life. It is good for us to get hold of this fact. “He calleth His own sheep by name” (John 10:3).

He has saved us as individuals and He cares for us as individuals. He says, “I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine” (Isaiah 43:1).

Not only does He know our name and treat us as individuals, but He will never forget any one of us either. Sometimes when I meet a young person and try to greet them by name, I either forget or make a mistake. Maybe I confuse them with their brother or sister. But not so with the Lord. He says, “Yet will I not forget thee” (Isaiah 49:15).

Monthly Scripture Reading

Titus 2

6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;

10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Computers

An elderly friend of mine made the following observation regarding the use of computers. He said, “They are both fabulous and frustrating.”

I think he got it right. They are fabulous when they work and frustrating when they don’t. The trouble is we get so dependent on technology for our daily routine that when it breaks down or doesn’t work as fast as we think it should we get upset.

Thankfully, we have a resource that will never break down or fail. It is the Lord Jesus Christ in heaven and the open line of communication we have with Him. We are told, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). You will never get a busy signal; you will never be put on hold; there is no call waiting or call forwarding and there are no automated recordings.

Use this wonderful resource today, and if your computer and other technological gadgets fail you, remember, you have one who will never fail, and who is “a very present help” (Psalm 46:1).

Dear Young Christian:

I read a simple little story today that touched my heart.

Martin Luther saw a little bird preparing for sleep. “See,” said Luther, “how it teaches us a lesson! He takes hold of his twig, tucks his head under his wing, and goes to sleep, leaving God to take care of him.”

Let’s remember this simple illustration from nature as another week begins. As you step out your door today, commit yourself to the care of God your Father and remember what the Lord Jesus said concerning His care of His own. “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows” (Matthew 10:29-31).

He sees the little sparrow,

But He knows His children best,

Our Father never slumbers,

But gives His loved ones rest.

Your Christian Friend,

Jim Hyland
