Joh 14.26 +

Joh 14.26

“…the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,

whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things…”

 

“You can’t understand the Bible without the new heart.”
– C B Fugett, “I Have Played the Fool” (sermon)

 

Family Altar con’t.- After the Bible reading, your wife or a child may have a question. Answer it the best you can, if you can. If you have no idea what the answer is, simply say I don’t know & tell them you’ll seek the answer. Seek it A.) Through prayer (God may give you a respond directly from Him),  B.) By searching a commentary or concordance,  C.) By asking the pastor next Lord’s Day.

“We are all just as other men until the Spirit of God comes upon us.

How badly we need Him.”

– C B Fugett, “I Have Played the Fool” (sermon)

 

CHRIST’S COMING (5th Bryan card)

Prophet and king had gladly told

And written it with care.

The young had learned it from the old,

Both delighted in the share.

 

The beggar heard it and believed

In His future wealthy reign.

Oppressed people were not grieved,

A loving Ruler, they were to gain.

 

They wanted Christ, That Chosen Race.

Although the Book told the place,

They missed Him. A sad case!

 

Pastor and layman with voices bold

And teachers also bear,

The message, “We are cold, too cold

To go with Him, so fair.”

 

We’ve been chilled and deceived,

By “riches”, in the main.

I’m afraid we’d be relieved

If He didn’t come again.

 

Relieved, because of our slow pace.

Relieved, we lack His offered grace.

Relieved, not to see Him face to face.

– eab, December 1969

           

Luk 6.27

“But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies,

do good to them which hate you,”

 

Person wrote a Book I wish you’d read. It’s an older Book & not all easy reading but Oh, the depth. There’s an interesting mix of prose & poetry. It has several genre: autobiographical material, intense action (migration & military), great deal of human interest, & yes, more than one love story. As a literature major (BA,‘67) there is no Book I can more highly recommend, regardless of your age. I speak, of course, of the Classic of all Classics, the Holy Bible. Don’t pretend that you’re educated if you haven’t read It through. – eab, 12/21/18

 

“…I went a friend’s house last night & looked at TV. God convicted me

with Psalm 119:37 ‘Turn away mine eye’s from beholding vanity.’”

– Jim Elliott, quoted by Vance Havner

 

“How are you?” I overheard at the next table in a restaurant. “Sober” he said. “That’s no fun” was her immediate response. Paul wrote the Ephesians “…Be not drunk with wine wherein is excess but be filled with the Spirit.” How many of us are “sober” i.e. not overflowing with the Spirit? We can be having not “fun” but be joyous. Alas not enough of us are. Amen? Ouch?

– eab, 12/21/18

 

The Shunammite woman didn’t say ‘I perceive that this is a famous man of God

or popular or brilliant or successful man of God.’ She said a ‘holy’ man of God.

– Vance Havner
