O What a Saviour(s)!

O What a Saviour

In my title, I pluralized the word Saviour because He saved us from things other than hell.  He is not just a fire escape that shows up at our death and snatches us from the burning. He is our Saviour from Society The Biblical word for society is world.  In Galatians 1:4 Paul says, “Who…

“…My Father Worketh Hitherto, and I work.” John 5:17

The Father Worketh

Jesus had just healed the man who had an infirmity 38 years (John 5:5-9).  The Pharisees challenged the authenticity of the miracle because it was done on the sabbath day, which meant to them that God could not have been behind the miracle, for it was His day off (i.e. His day of rest) as…

The Far Reaches of Disobedience

The Reaches of Disobedience

I could have chosen Adam as a study in the far-reaching effects of disobedience.  He has touched every human being which has ever lived, is living, or will be living.  I could bring Achan before us, whose disobedience cost every member of his family.  A modern day study in disobedience could be the church and…

The Necessity of Being Filled with the Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit Filling

The Holy Spirit and the Christian The Holy Spirit in the Christian life is as necessary as the Lord Jesus being received in a life.  The Holy Spirit is not an addition or an extra, but a necessity.  We say we believe that, but hear so little about Him.  I think many times we are…

The Inaudible and Invisible God

Inaudible and Invisible God

What do you consider to be a Christian’s greatest challenge and God’s greatest effort toward fallen men? It may be to make an inaudible and invisible God known in a world that relates only through the five physical senses: sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste. Did you ever wonder why our God chose to remain invisible and inaudible in His effort…

Seeing the Need for Bible Translation

People often ask me, how did I get involved in the Mongolia project? A little background is necessary. I have always had a great respect for the Bible and even before I was saved, I reverenced it. Along with my love for the Scriptures, God also put a love in my heart for missions early…
