Mat 8.16 + + + +

Mat 8.16

“When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word and HEALED all that were sick:” (emphasis added)



A man who loves God may feel urged to warn against modern trends. If you feel you do-not-need his warning It Might Be Best if you do not oppose them. Your wife, son, or a new convert may need the very warning that irked you a little. Be careful. Your open, verbose opposition may harm the spiritual progress of a dear loved one.

“What is heaven but an eternal monument to holiness?”

Weigh In    

We humans have our scale

Which we use, without fail,

And /know/ that it’s right.

In what things /really/ weigh,

Rev 1.19

“Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are,

and the things which shall be hereafter”



Does your preacher’s life-style (muscle car he drives on his day-off, golf-game he adroitly plays, etc.) make you wish you /could be/ a minister? (There’s a time to relax, don’t get me wrong, but are we seeing an abundance of easy-living-preachers?) Or does his life with less style & more humble ways make you say, “I hope God never calls me to preach”?
