Worship

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power” (Revelation 4:11).

Today we will quote the words of a worship hymn written by Miss F. T. Wigram, sometime before 1871.

Worthy of homage and of praise;

Worthy by all to be adored;

Exhaustless theme of heavenly lays!

Thou, Thou art worthy, Jesus, Lord.

Now seated on Jehovah’s throne,

The Lamb once slain in glory bright:

’Tis thence Thou watchest o’er Thine own,

Guarding us through the deadly fight.

To Thee, e’en now, our song we raise,

Though sure the tribute mean must prove;

No mortal tongue can tell Thy ways,

So full of life and light and love.

Yet, Saviour Thou shalt have full praise:

We soon shall meet Thee on the cloud,

We soon shall see Thee face to face,

In glory praising as we would.

Embedded in the World

Lord Kenneth Clark, internationally known for his television series Civilization, lived and died without faith in Jesus Christ. In His autobiography, he wrote about an overwhelming religious experience he had while visiting a beautiful church.

“My whole being was irradiated (enlightened) by a kind of heavenly joy far more intense than anything I had known before.” Unfortunately “the flood of grace,” as he described it, created a problem for him. If he allowed himself to be influenced by it, he knew he would have to change. His family might think he was crazy, or perhaps the intense joy would prove to be only an illusion. So he concluded, “I was too deeply embedded in the world to change course.”

How tragic! God can enable any of us to change no matter how deeply we may be embedded in the world. He can save us and turn us completely around for eternal blessing. Here’s what Paul said, as to his conversion: “The grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief” (1 Timothy 1:14-15).

Enablement

“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13).

Whatever the Lord bids you do by His Word, the Bible, be assured that He will enable you to do it by His power. He works in us to will and to work His good pleasure. That is, He never directs us in any path of obedience or service without furnishing a sufficient supply of grace and strength. Does He ask you to give up some bad or evil habit? The power to overcome it awaits you. Just claim it! Does He bid you to walk on water? The power by which to walk only waits for you to avail yourself of it. Does He want you to perform some dull duty? There is such transforming power issuing from Him as to make duty a delight, if only you will put His power to work in your daily life.

Whenever you are called upon to stand up and speak a word for your Lord, be sure to seek and obtain the power He gives. That will prove to be your best credential. Take the power of the Lord with you; it is His signet-ring, by which men will be convinced that you have been entrusted with His Word.

Looking to Jesus

At a Bible conference recently I heard someone say, “Every look to Jesus saves the soul. Every other look is the power of Christian living.” It made me think of at least two verses from the Bible, one in connection with each statement.

First: “Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:22). This is a universal command. Like the Israelites when bitten by the serpents: “It came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived” (Numbers 21:9). So, we learn that one look of faith to Jesus saves the sinner.

Second: “Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:1-2). It is only as we look to Christ each day that we are going to gain the needed strength and grace for the Christian pathway. The Apostle Paul said, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13). There is only one way to have power in our Christian life, and that is by looking to Christ, and having a fresh glimpse of Him every day.

Our Attitude

God wants us to have a good spirit and a cheerful attitude as we go through life. Three times Solomon speaks of having a merry heart.

“A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance” (Proverbs 15:13).

“He that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast” (Proverbs 15:15).

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine” (Proverbs 17:22).

Someone has taken each letter of the word “attitude,” taken the number representing its order in our alphabet, and added it all up to 100%.

A…1

T…20

T…20

I….9

T…20

U..21

D..4

E…5

Is your attitude 100% what it should be?

Listen and Speak

God speaksjust listen!

God listensjust speak!

So stated the bumper sticker on a car as I drove through the state of New York. How often do we just stop and listen to God speaking to us? He speaks in many different ways. Mainly it is through the Bible, His living Word. But there are other ways too. It may be through circumstances, such as sickness, and other kinds of trials or road blocks in our Christian pathway; it may even be through a dream or vision. He can use other people, as well as many other modes of conveying messages to us. The great question is, are we listening? Let’s be like Samuel, who said, “Speak; for thy servant heareth” (1 Samuel 3:10).

God also wants to hear us speak to Him. Prayer is a wonderful resource given to us for the path of faith. David, in one of his prayers said, “I have called upon Thee, for Thou wilt hear me” (Psalm 17:6). The prophet Micah said “My God will hear me” (Micah 7:7). What great confidence this give us.

Dear Young Christian:

In Canada where I live, today is Thanksgiving, but in the United States of America it is Columbus Day. Columbus Day is observed in commemoration of the day when Christopher Columbus first arrived in America on October 12, 1492. That is the date when he landed on what is now the island of San Salvador in the Bahamas.

While it is good to remember those who have done great things, and made wonderful discoveries, let’s not forget “the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5). He is the one who, as the Creator, came into this world, not to discover it, but to redeem it due to the fact that sin had come in and spoiled it. When John the Baptist saw the Lord Jesus, he announced, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). There is a day coming when this world will no longer feel the effects of sin the way it does now. In the meantime we can rejoice that we are redeemed, and that our sins are forever gone. For us, that is the most wonderful discovery of all!

Your Christian Friend,

Jim Hyland

We would love to hear from you.

The Name of Jesus

“And she shall bring forth a son,
and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
for He shall save His people
from their sins”
(Matthew 1:21).

What a wonderful birth announcement this was to Joseph (the earthly father of the Lord Jesus), and to the whole world. For 2000 years, the religious exercises of the Passover had rolled by. Rivers of blood had flowed from Israel’s altars, as countless sacrifices had been slain and offered day after day and year after year.

Now with Israel far away from their God and the sacrifices polluted and neglected, and the nation enslaved by a Gentile empire (the Romans), the glorious news is declared concerning the birth of a child who would, “save His people from their sins.”

What Israel could never achieve, what all the sacrifices could not accomplish, Jesus would carry out to perfection “by the sacrifice of Himself” (Hebrews 9:26).

What a Saviour we have! What blessings and future have been secured for us, and all because of that mighty work of the cross! What a namethe name of JESUS!

It Is Mine

Sitting in her room, busily writing, was an elderly lady of about eighty years. Before her lay an open Bible, and she was busy copying several underlined verses into a small book. God had been dealing with her soul, awakening a sense of need and a desire to know Christ as her Saviour, but she had but little, if any, assurance of her security.

Her task ended, she rose up, and, as she thought, closed the Bible, and laid it and her notebook aside. On returning to the table, she found to her surprise the Bible still open, and an underlined verse on the open page seemed to look at her reproachfully. The verse was, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on Me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47).

Powerfully did those words go home to her heart. “Blessed Lord,” she said, “I do believe in Thee. Then I have eternal life; it is mine; Thou sayest it.” Brightly shone the light into her heart as she received, in simplicity, those precious words. Thenceforward she knew she had everlasting life; not because she felt it, but because He had said it.

Is it yours? Do you have ETERNAL LIFE?

DanielPart 3

With God-given wisdom, Daniel could discern the fact that the Babylonian culture was in conflict with the Word of God, and he had the maturity and moral courage to say a firm “no” to cultural pressures. Involved in this is the clear implication that Daniel was a keen student of the Scriptures and that he had the ability to apply what he knew to the problems of his daily life. Later on we read, “In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet” (Daniel 9:2).

In the early days of Christianity, we find another God-fearing man by the name of Barnabas, “Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord” (Acts 11:23).

Like Daniel in his time, it takes real purpose and spiritual energy to be faithful to the Lord in a wicked world. However, God vindicated Daniel and honored him greatly because he stood by his convictions. God always does!

Do you have that real desire and purpose to stand firm in spite of pressure to compromise truth and principles?
