    Behold, . . . a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs. . . . Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of […]

  • The Lily Among Thorns

    A patch of thorns is not the first place you would expect to see lilies growing, is it? No matter what kind of lily you are thinking of —some are large and some are small — they are all beautiful and delicate flowers. They are not like hard and sharp thorns. One flower of the […]

Perhaps you’ve heard the suggestion that if you want to know why Christians suffer, read the book of Job. At first, Job receives a high commendation from God: “And the Lord says unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there […]

  • There Is Hope

    “Stay with me, I cannot bear to be left alone. O Lord help me, what have I done to suffer so much? What will become of me hereafter? No, don’t leave me, stay with me. Send even a child to stay with me, for I am on the edge of hell here alone.” These were […]

  • The Ostrich: Not Just a Big Dumb Bird

    “Gavest thou . . . wings and feathers unto the ostrich? Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust, And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them. She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without […]

  • King Of Creation

    As years go by I appreciate more and more the heritage we hold in the hymnology of the church of Christ. The hymns of the past contain not only beautiful truth, but also the expression of hundreds of years of spiritual experience preserved for the benefit of believers today. My favorite is “Praise to the […]

    Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? —Psalm 85:6 The history of Pentecost with its ten-day prayer meeting in the upper room prior to the outpouring of God’s Spirit and the history of the Great Awakenings with their prayer meetings in homes, offices, and churches teach us that if […]

    Arthur Stace was brought up in Sydney, Australia, in a home in which his father was a drunkard and his mother ran a brothel. Early in life he began to drink himself, and alcohol got such a grip on his life that he was soon reduced to drinking methylated spirits and stealing food to stay […]
