Walking With Jesus

“Abide in Him” (1 John 2:28).

When all is fair and calm and bright,
To walk with Jesus, our delight;
We find Him there, with joy and praise,
Illuminating all our days.

When all is dark, and all seems dim,
We still by faith can walk with Him;
We find Him there, with joy, the same,
And walk by grace, and bless His name.

And, come what may, we have no doubt,
That all is planned and measured out;
In this we ever can abide,
Knowing that Christ is by our side.

So dark or bright, we onward press,
‘Midst peaceful days or much distress;
We trust, we cling to Jesus Christ,
Our treasure and our hope unpriced.

Dear Young Christian,

“But now, O Lord, Thou art our Father; we are the clay, and Thou our potter; and we all are the work of Thy hand” (Isaiah 64:8).

“Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in Mine hand” (Jeremiah 18:6).

I have been to pottery-houses and seen artisans make beautiful vessels of various sizes and shapes. Just so, God our Father is seeking to mold us into vessels for His glory. He does this in many ways. Sometimes it is through difficult circumstances, and sometimes through good and happy circumstances. Sometimes it is through His chastening and correction, and a host of other things intertwined in our day-to-day life by His goodness and wisdom.

The question is, are we willing to be molded and formed according to His will and wisdom? If so, our life and testimony will be a beautiful fragrance for His glory and honor, and there will be fruit and joy in our walk with Him.

Your Christian Friend,

Jim Hyland

What Manner…

“And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of Man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?” (Mark 4:41).

The person of Christ, His power, His work, and all that He is, we will never be able to fully enter into. “What manner of Man is this” will continue to be our wonder for all eternity.

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God” (1 John 3:1).

His infinite love will also continue to be our wonder, and one of the great themes of our praise and worship, and we will forever echo, “what manner of love!”

“What manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness” (2 Peter 3:11).

In view of this we ought to behave, today and every day, in a way that shows that we know Christ as Savior and Lord, and that we are the recipients of “His great love wherewith He loved us” (Ephesians 2:4).

Though we do not fully grasp all that He is, we can still “Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness” (Psalm 96:9).

Death

Death comes at all different ages and is certainly no respecter of persons. For the believer it is wonderful to know that when we close our eyes in death we are “absent from the body, and…present with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:8). And that we will open our eyes in the conscious sense of His presence. One glimpse of His glorious face and everything else will be eclipsed. When we close our eyes in death here, it is wonderful to know that life is not endingin fact it is just beginning, and in a more abundant way than we could ever imagine or anticipate.

However, for the unbeliever who rejects Christ and God’s offer of salvation through the work of Calvary, it is quite another story. Those who close their eyes in death without God’s pardon will open them in the same way described by the Lord Jesus, concerning the rich man, in Luke’s gospel. “And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments” (Luke 16:23).

This is why it is not only important, but vital, that the question of your salvation be settled now. None of us have a lease on life.

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Act 16:31).

Monthly Question Page

Q. I do not come from a Christian family, and often my parents as well as my older brother make fun of me. What reaction should I have?

A. The Lord, when here on earth, often spoke of how those who were not His own would reproach and revile those who loved Him. He also gave instructions as to how to react. Here is one example:

“Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you”(Matt. 5:44).

While I am sure your family does not hate you, yet because they are not saved, they cannot understand why you live and act the way you do as a Christian. The best testimony you can give is to quietly live for Christ and follow the Lord’s example,

“Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, he threatened not; but committed Himself to him that judgeth righteously”(1 Peter 2:23).

Remember too, this wonderful promise,

“When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up” (Psalm 27:10).

In Your Heart

“Therefore shall ye lay up these My words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes” (Deuteronomy 11:18).

Here are eight keys to having our hearts warmed and drawn to Christ as we pass through this cold, heartless world:

Put your cares in the Lord’s hand,

 He will put His peace in your heart.

Center your thoughts on Himself,

 He will put His knowledge in your heart.

Rest your hopes on His promises,

 He will put His assurance in your heart.

Think often of His grace and mercy,

 He will put His song in your heart.

Meditate on His work, past/present/future,

 He will put His love in your heart.

Make Christ the apex of your whole life and being,

 He will magnify Himself in your heart.

Walk in fellowship with the Lord,

 He will put His sweetness in your heart.

Continually rejoice in the Lord,

 He will put His joy in your heart.

Monthly Scripture Reading

Philippians 1

21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.

23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;

26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.

27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

Daily Life

Here are some invitations from the Lord Himself that are relevant and needful for our daily lives as believers:

• “Come unto Me” (Matthew 11:28).

He invites us to come with our burdens and concerns, and find comfort and peace even in difficult times.

• “Learn of Me” (Matthew 11:29).

The Lord has lessons for us to learn throughout our whole live, and as Elihu reminded Job, “Who teacheth like Him?” (Job 36:22).

• “Follow Me” (Matthew 4:19).

To have Him as our guide is essential to being kept in the path of faith and service for His glory.

• “Abide in Me” (John 15:4).

This is an appeal for maintaining constant communion. We need to remember that apart from Him we can do nothing, and there will be no spiritual fruit in our lives.

• “Believe also in Me” (John 14:1).

He wants us to trust Him at all times and in every situation. He is worthy of our confidence and will never fail or disappoint our faith.

Dear Young Christian,

Daniel O’Donnell is a well know Irish singer of both secular and Christian songs. As I waited for my wife to get up this morning so we could have breakfast together, I listened to one of those songs entitled “If Jesus Comes Tomorrow?” I had listened to it before, but perhaps thought little about it. What went through my mind this time was, Shouldn’t it be “If Jesus comes TODAY?”

This hope of the Lord’s coming is to be such a reality that we should be looking for it TODAY, right now! As we go about daily life we should be thinking and living like those who are ready to take the next step from earth to the Father’s house. It is good for us to look up from time to time and quote the last prayer and recorded words of believers in the Bible: “Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20). This hope is in no way an uncertain hope like the hopes of this life. “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast” (Hebrews 6:19). Perhaps TODAY!

Your Christian Friend,

Jim Hyland

The Lamb

“John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

“And looking upon Jesus as He walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!” (John 1:36).

What a declaration, and what a glorious subject for our heart’s meditation. THE LAMB OF GOD! The theme runs throughout Scripture, from the sacrifice of Abel until the last page of the inspired Word. Forever we will be occupied with the Lord Jesus in this aspect of His work. As the following quote so preciously says:

“And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain…the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb…And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:6, 8-10).
