Joh 1.3 +

Joh 1.3

“All things were made by him & without him

was not any thing made that was made.

“Frances Havergal (‘Take My Life & Let It Be’) was able to recite by heart

the entire NT (except Acts) when she was only 22.”

TV #2 Several readers (I think) were also blessed with parents who had the good sense to not bring a BIG garbage can into the middle of their living room. And, some of you who were so blessed to also have had no TV in your own homes. (Martha & I have never had a TV.) The abstinence from this very addicting device was a blessing to your children – they did grow up “Having to watch” some actor doing his false riding, falling, actions. Thank You. You treated your child as your parents treated you.- 7/25/22

He will not therefore look at the lives of Christians to learn how he ought to spend his estate but he will look into the Scriptures & make every doctrine parable precept or instruction that relates to rich men a law to himself in the use of his estate.”

The Lord came down to earth that day

His head was pillowed on Bethlehem hay

He walked the earth and healed and taught

Till by the Pharisees murderously caught

He arose, as He said that He would

Ate; showing His glorified body could

His feet walked to, then lifted, from Olivet

To which He hasn’t returned – not yet

But He will in His Father’s perfect time

Ah, future with Him defines “Sublime.”

GROWING # 2. The above two are VERY important – this post about the mental is not nearly as important. Yet, there are places of overlap between “growing in Christ” & maturing in the mind. The adult mind may question the educational world. It may ask why this or why that about the world of money. There’s a place to question “science says” – Oh, who made science a “god”? The mentally mature reachers beyond blind patriotism. And materialism. Be willing to look at the other side of almost everything. – 7/25/22

“Let a clergyman but be thus pious &…will no more think

& talk of noble preferment than of noble eating or a glorious chariot.”

– Wm Law

Girls become cheerleaders because parents allow it. Boys play ball because dad/mom allow – even push them. Are you as willing to take them to Prayer Meeting, kneel beside them (or in same room) & plead God for an awakening in your town? When was the last time the entire family wept together in Family Altar praying for a lost cousin? Please parents, look down the road. Cheerleaders too often become immoral. Ball players too often are injured For Life. God or the “god of sports”? Which? – 7/26/22

Joh 15.19

“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world

but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

When the Holy Ghost is helping the preacher bear down on sin (naming them) & in the same message or another, helps him expose the putrid traits of carnality there is nothing, repeat Nothing, entertaining about it. Anyone guilty of the named sins whats to get out of the meeting or to get sins out of his life. He is serious. When a soul, still plagued with the Old Man, hears how horrible carnality actually is, he wants God to rid him of it. Now. He is very serious. “O God, give us Holy preaching again!” – 7/27/22

“Alhough Sir Walter Scott…was surrounded by a library of 40000 books on his death-bed he said… ‘Bring me the Book.’ When asked what book…he replied ‘There is only ONE Book…’”
