“Once It Was the Blessing; Now It Is the Lord”—A Classic Hymn

In our post on the benefits of singing to the Lord in our daily life, we pointed out that God’s people throughout the ages have praised, worshipped, and expressed their deepest sentiments to God in songs and hymns. As a result we believers today have a rich heritage of classic hymns to encourage and inspire us in our Christian life. In this post we’d like to share with you a hymn by A. B. Simpson...

The Lord Becoming Our Enjoyment Through Calling on His Name

“The more we call on the Lord, the more He becomes our enjoyment. Through calling on Him He also becomes our peace, rest, comfort, and solution to all kinds of situations. This is not a mere doctrine or superficial teaching; this is a truth for our experience.”

Looking unto Jesus to Transcend Our Circumstances

“When you cannot endure a difficult situation and the suppression is beyond your strength, turn to your spirit and look unto Jesus. You will rise far above it, transcendent and victorious. Everything will be under your feet.”

What Is God’s Complete Salvation in the Bible?

Have you ever wondered whether God’s salvation is only to save us from eternal perdition? Wonderful as that is, if that’s all, then what’s the meaning of the rest of our lives on earth? The Bible tells us that God’s salvation includes much more than we might have thought. It’s a complete salvation.

The Knowledge-Surpassing Love of Christ

Ephesians 3:19—“And to know the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ, that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God.” Note 1 on knowledge-surpassing says: “The love of Christ is Christ Himself. Just as Christ is immeasurable, so also is His love; hence, it is knowledge-surpassing. Yet, we can know it by experiencing it.” Cross-reference “a” on love of Christ directs us to these verses:

Taking the Way of Life

“We have said again and again that God’s intention in saving us is not for us to be evil men or good men, but to be life-men or God-men. Therefore, after we are saved, we should not merely attain to the standard of morality in our behavior and live out the goodness of man, but we should reach the standard of life in our living and live out the life of God. Hence, the way we should take today is...

Do You Need Help Understanding the Bible?

The Bible is much more than a book of morals and interesting stories. As God’s own speaking to mankind, it stands alone as the highest, most profound book. This Book of books brings us the divine revelation of God, His plan for man, and His eternal purpose. But the Bible isn’t always easy to understand.

Tasting the Lord in the Word

“The Word is not only for us to study or learn, but even more for us to taste. The way the Lord nourishes His Body is by His Word. If we desire to enjoy the Lord and be nourished by the Lord, we must come to the Word and taste the Lord.”

Living Letters of Christ

2 Corinthians 3:3—“Since you are being manifested that you are a letter of Christ ministered by us, inscribed not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone but in tablets of hearts of flesh.” Note 4 on hearts says: “Our heart, composed of our conscience (the leading part of our spirit), our mind, our emotion, and our will, is the tablet in which the living letters of...

Christ Is the Reality of Every Positive Thing

It’s not unusual for us to encounter difficulties in our relationships with others—our spouse, our child, a classmate, or a coworker, for instance. Perhaps we’ve asked the Lord to help us navigate the situation by praying, “Lord, grant me wisdom to deal with my son,” or “Lord, help me be patient with this person.” But in spite of our prayers, we still struggle. Why doesn’t the Lord give us wisdom...
