Man’s departure from God was voluntary;

his return must likewise be voluntary.

L D Wilcox, from his book Profiles in Wesleyan Theology

Three would encourage me to pray: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Three would appreciate my prayers: Christian brothers, Christian sisters and serious sinners.

“Three” (and only “three”) can stop me from praying: “Me, Myself, and I.”

Give us ways of worshiping the Master,

               Grant us ways.

In these days of rushing ever faster,

               Restless days.

Urge us upward through the clamoring din,

               Ever onward.

Till upward pulling You bring us in,

To brightest heaven, banished of sin,

To mansions prepared for mere men.

Pull us upward.                                                 


Draw us nearer to Your Father heart,

               Bring us nearer.

Become dearer; not farther apart,

               Always dearer.

Make my soul a simple scrap of steel,

               Work my soul.

Make it sensitive to feel,

The attraction so real

Wood, hay, & stubble from me magnetically peel

Tug on my soul.                                                


I pray Thee let us hear Thy calling voice,

               O pray Thee.

Let us serve Thee by eternal choice,

               Selflessly serve.

Soon tomorrow will beckon in haste,

               Timeless tomorrow

Help us so live that when we are faced

With the record we have fixed in place

Our sojourn will not be a useless disgrace,

Has’en tomorrow.

Truth is liberating. Period.

Truths about God, about His Creation, Redemption, Manhood, Revelation and much more are liberating. The enemy of our souls does NOT want us to be free (he is damned and wants us to be bound and damned as he is). Therefore satan has lied, and lied about everything of eternal importance.

Learn to question all this world “preaches.” Explore the Bible for truth – It is our best tangible source. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” Joh 8.32.
