You’re Old + + +

Sinners are born blind. Being redeemed gives wonderful sight. To backslide is comparable to you placing a blindfold over your eyes. To apostatize is to gouge out your own eyes. God may, repeat /may/ allow a backslider mercy & he be able to remove his blindfold. The one who gouges out his eyes never sees again.

You’re Old?  

You’re old? “It’s in your head,”

Methuselah might have said,

Who lived nine centuries, sixty-nine.

Your age is a fraction of that line.

His age, though quite large to us,

Was neither a minus nor a plus

To God, our illustrious Ancient of Days,

Who’s lived forever, yet is young – always.

*M M M* Pray for a willingness to be M odest in personal appearance: men, women, youth. Pray for a willingness to be M oderate in car, home & vacation.  (Just because you can make the payments is no sign it’s the right thing to do.)  And pray for a willingness to M odel patience (in an impatient age), M odel purity (in an age of defilement) & a M odel holy demonstration (in an age of religious formality).

“When the Lord saved me He gave me something I never had, and always wanted.”

“When He sanctified He took out of me something I never needed, and never wanted!”

Now & then I see on social media a quote by Tozer (wish I’ heard him), Ravenhill (got to hear & meet him) or Wiersbe (got to meet & hear him) & I appreciate these. I see only a few quotes by holiness preachers: older Methodists, Nazarenes, Pilgrims, Salvationists, Wesleyan Methodists, etc. of early 1900’s. Is this because few men are reading Holiness Classics? Brothers, if you must read modern stuff, I beg, make every-other-book a meaty holiness one or about a holiness man. Read/underline. Read/pray. Read/quote.

Mat 20.27

“And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:”


*God or “science”* True science & its honest laborers glorify God & His word. False “science” & its collaborators seek to discredit God & His Word. Thinking parents are responsible to sort out which (science or “science”) is being presented to your child in text & film. This task is greatly enhanced when you daily study the Bible. Conversely, it is unmercifully muddled when your prime source is the state school, TV, & other liberal media.
