Dear Young Christian:

 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1).

Do you only do the minimumsimply what is expected of you and no more? Or do you go the extra mile? How will it be when you stand before the Lord? Will you have gone out of your way to serve Him by helping a fellow-believer, by helping with a gospel outreach, or by generally being available in His service, whatever He may have for you to do? Will He commend you for being “fervent in spirit; serving the Lord” (Romans 12:11).

As we start out on another week of Christian living, let’s think seriously about giving ourselves wholeheartedly to the Lord and His service. “So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do” (Luke 17:10).

Your Christian Friend,

Jim Hyland

We would love to hear from you.

Three Facts

Three great facts make up the testimony of our Lord Jesus, and we who know Him as our Savior and Lord, and who own His name, should understand the full force of them and maintain them without shame or fear.

The Apostle John bears witness to these facts in Revelation 1:5.

 

1. Christ has been here: “Jesus Christ, who is the Faithful Witness.”

 

2. He is no longer here: “The First Begotten of the dead.”

3. He is coming back: “The Prince of the kings of the earth.”

 

As we consider these three blessed truths today, there will be worship produced in our souls, and we will spontaneously say from our hearts, “To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen” (Revelation 1:6).

Twice Saved

“Who then can be saved” (Luke 18:26)?
“Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord
shall be saved”
(Acts 2:21).

Perhaps one of the most miraculous stories ever told took place at Niagara Falls on a Saturday afternoon, July 9, 1960. A man from Niagara Falls, New York took two children for a boat ride in the upper Niagara River. The boat developed motor trouble, capsized into the river and all three were thrown into the upper rapids. The man went over the Falls and was killed. At the same time, the 17-year-old girl was pulled out of the water only 20 feet from the very edge of the Falls and her younger brother, wearing only a life jacket and a bathing suit, went over the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. He came out alive to tell his story. His name was Roger Woodward.

The tourist boat, “Maid of the Mist,” happened to be at the bottom of the falls and the captain heard Roger crying, “Help! Help!” A life ring was thrown to him. He grabbed it and was hauled to safety.

A year later, he accepted Christ as his Savior. Later on, as a young man, he said, “I guess the Lord saved me the first time so that I could be saved a second time.”

Prosperity

A recent advertisement read:

The Way to Prosperity is Through Education!

While it is true that education may help us to get a job and “provide things honest in the sight of all men” (Romans 12:17), it is still not God’s formula for spiritual success. God’s recipe for success is contained in His words to Joshua on the banks of the Jordan River just before entering the land of Canaan. “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” (Joshua 1:8).

To apply this to our life today, there are three things we need to do to have real success in life:

1. Read the Word of God

2. Meditate on the Word of God

3. Obey the Word of God.

This does not mean that we will necessarily become rich or have success by the world’s standards, but it does mean that we will have spiritual prosperity, and isn’t that what really counts in our Christian experience?

Numbers in Scripture: #6

This number is indicative of incompleteness and imperfection, being one short of God’s perfect number seven. Here are some examples:

Solomon had six steps to his throne. “Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with the best gold. The throne had six steps” (1 Kings 10:18-19). However, it was not elevated enough to save him from idolatry.

Six hundred sixty and six talents of gold were brought him in a year. “Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold” (1 Kings 10:14). Still, he had to confess that all was vanity and vexation of spirit.

The Jews at Cana had six water-pots for purification. “There were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece” (John 2:6). Yet they expressed the insufficiency of ordinances to meet man’s need.

The number of the beast will be six hundred sixty and six. “Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six” (Revelation 13:18).

Amen” (Revelation 1:5-6).

Dear Young Christian:

When I was growing up I often had the admonition from one or the other of my parents, “Behave yourself!” I certainly needed this reminder far more than I care to remember, and often I did not heed the timely advice, usually with some disciplinary consequences resulting.

Paul said to the young man Timothy, “If I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God” (1 Timothy 3:15). There is a conduct that is becoming to a child of God at all times. Remember, we are in the House of God wherever we are. “Christ as a Son over His own house; whose house are we” (Hebrews 3:6). It’s not just at special times when we are with other believers that we are to behave, but in all situations.

As we start out this week let’s think about what David said: “I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way” (Psalm 101:2). Those we know and meet in the days to come should see by our behavior that we belong to the Lord and want to please Him. As my mother would say, “Behave yourself.”

 Your Christian Friend,

 Jim Hyland

We would love to hear from you.

RememberingPart 3

“Thou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever; and Thy remembrance unto all generations” (Psalm 102:12).

We drink this cup, Lord Jesus,

 And muse upon Thy blood;

The ground of all our blessings

 Life-giving, precious flood.

We worship Thee, Lord Jesus,

 A risen Savior Thou;

“Worthy the Lamb” once slain,

 Lives in the glory now.

Lord Jesus, when we gather,

 Around Thee in that place,

Where we shall there behold Thee,

 Unhindered face to face;

We shall remember ever,

 The work of Calvary;

Thy wounds a fresh reminder,

 For all eternity.

Blackness

“To whom is reserved the blackness of
darkness for ever”
(Jude 13).

John Welsh, a Scottish Covenanter, known for his prayer life and defense of the Scriptures, rejected state interference in church matters. His beliefs landed him in a notorious castle at Blackness, near Falkirk. According to tradition, he was lowered into a dungeon pit that could be reached only through a hole in the floor. Its rough floor was uneven and slanted. There was no flat place on which to lie and no smooth spot on which to get comfortable. One could not sit, stand or lie down without misery. John spent ten months at Blackness. Banishment in total darkness here led many to despair, but Welsh declared, “It is better to know the darkness of Blackness than to experience the blackness of darkness.”

No such fate awaits the believer. The one who has accepted Christ as Savior looks forward to enjoying all eternity in the light of His glorious heaven.

Are you one of the “children of light” (1 Thessalonians 5:5)? Has He “called you out of darkness into His marvellous light” (1 Peter 2:9)?
