A Hymn (Tune: Did You Think To Pray?)

“Sing unto the Lord” (Psalm 96:1).

Did you sing a hymn this morning?

Did you praise the Lord?

Did you lift your voice in gladness,

Drive away the gloom and sadness,

With a joyful cord?

Refrain:

Oh, how singing lifts our spirit,

Jesus loves to hear our voice!

Others too, no doubt, will hear it,

Making hearts rejoice.

Did you sing a hymn at noon time?

Did you bless His name?

Did you give Him praise and glory?

Did your lips tell forth the story

Of His love and fame?

Will you sing a hymn this evening,

When the day is done?

Will you thank Him for His mercy,

All His grace and goodness, that He

Gives from sun to sun?

Oilbirds

 “In Him was life; and the life was the light of menThat was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (John 1:4, 9).

Deep in the caves of Venezuela and Trinidad, in total darkness, lives a bird known as the Oilbird. These hawk-like birds leave their caves each night to feed on the many kinds of oily fruit which grow wild in the jungle. Their diet is so oily that their bodies are full of fat.

Years ago, and perhaps even still today, poor people who lacked money to buy oil, caught these birds for oil in their lamps. In other words, the birds themselves lived in total darkness, yet gave up their lives to provide poor people with light so that they would not have to live in darkness.

The Lord Jesus Christ came into this worlda world dark with sinso that He might give up His life on the cross and provide spiritual light for all who trust in Him. He said of Himself, “I am the light of the world: He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).

Monthly Question Page

Q. Why does God allow so many natural disasters, as well as sickness and sorrow?

A. Sin came into the world with the disobedience of Adam and not only affected the human race but every level of Creation. “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now” (Romans 8:22).

God uses weather, natural disasters, disease and sickness to awaken the unbeliever as to the reality of eternity, and to make them realize how insignificant and dependent on God they really are. He wants them to be saved.

Just because a believer is saved does not mean that he is immune to sin and its effects. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). God allows trials and sorrows to draw us closer to Himself, and to detach our hearts from this world, which we will soon exchange for the Father’s house. “And there shall be no more curse” (Revelation 22:3).

Faith

“He that hath received His testimony hath
set to His seal that God is true”
(John 3:33).

The above verse is probably the best definition of faith in the Scriptures. This is faith! Faith takes God at His Word without question. Faith believes!

The Christian has an unfailing, divine person to trust in. Unlike those of our acquaintances, here in this world, this person is always worthy of our confidence. He will never let us down! He is the Lord Jesus Christ! We have put our faith in Him for salvation, now can’t we trust Him for every step of our pathway, every circumstance of life? “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). Faith counts on God for the next step, acting on the light of Scripture. “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).

There is always light for the way, and never does the Bible speak of blind faith. Faith always has an object, an eye to the future. It is true that, “Abrahamwent out, not knowing whither he went” (Hebrews 11:8). But we also read, “He looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:10).

Monthly Scripture Reading

Luke 2

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

Mortify

“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall liveMortify therefore your members which are upon the earth” (Romans 8:13; Colossians 3:5).

Many years ago, while flying over India, Handley Page, a famous British aviator, was alarmed by the sound of some animal, presumably a rat, active near him, but out of his sight and reach, having evidently come aboard his plane before take-off. There was no convenient place to land to rid himself of the unwelcome passenger. There were wires, hoses and cables which a rat could soon damage, and their damage could mean loss of control or power. That could mean disaster! What could he do? Handley remembered that the rats common to the plains were not found higher in the mountains because of the thinner air. So, he took his plane as high as he could and kept it there until the ratty noises had long ceased. Upon landing, he found and removed the dead rat. He had mortified that rat by high flight.

We too can keep the sinful flesh in the place of death by flying highin other words, “Seek those things which are above where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God” (Colossians 3:1).

The Love Of Christ

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God” (Ephesians 3:17-19).

We live in a three dimensional world. Why then does Paul use four dimensions to measure the love of Christ? Imagine you are in the depths of the ocean. If you could be in the very center, there would not only be a breadth and length to the mighty waters, but there would be a depth below you and height above you. God desires that we comprehend the measureless dimensions of His love and realize we are at its very center. There are so many verses of Scripture that confirm this wonderful truth, as well as the fact that the Lord Jesus proved His great love by going to the cross and giving His life so that we could enjoy His love for all eternity.

In the meantime He says to us, “As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you: continue ye in My love” (John 15:9). How much of that love will you enjoy today?

Obedience

At a Bible conference recently one of the speakers made the following comment:

“Ultimately there is no downside to obedience.”

The Word of God states unequivocally, “Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in His commandments” (Psalm 112:1).There may be a cost attached to obedience, and we may not always know what the end result will be, but it is always the best way, and the way to true and lasting happiness in the Christian life. We read of Abraham, “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went” (Hebrews 11:8). He had no idea where he was going or what was ahead, but what blessings he received as a result of his obedience! “And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God” (James 2:23).

There are also consequences for disobedience. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).
