"FAITH ALONE IN CHRIST ALONE"

REMEMBER

Whenever you know a desolate hour
And are steeped in misery,
Remember that Christ was lonely too,
In bleak Gethsemane.


Whenever you feel that all of the world
Has turned its back on you,
Remember that Christ knew what it was
To feel abandoned too.


Whenever you feel that your burden
Is greater than you can bear,
Remember that He too heartbreakingly knew
A moment of dark despair.


And remembering these things
Just bear in mind,
His victory was finally won
When He bowed His head and humbly said,
“Not My will, but Thine, be done!”

"GOD’S TWO POEMS"





In Romans 1:18-20 the Apostle Paul declares that ungodly men are "without excuse" because they are surrounded by the evidences of the Creator’s "eternal power and God-head."

Our Authorized Version calls the creation, in this passage, "the things that are made," but in the Greek it is called literally "the poyeema," from which we get our word poem. The Apostle refers, of course, to the harmony of God’s creation, and is it not indeed amazing how billions of heavenly bodies can continually revolve in the vastness of space and never collide! And are not the flowers, the seasons, the sunsets all part of a harmonious creation, which God alone could have conceived and set to music?

But very interestingly, this word poyeema is used just once more in Scripture. We find it in Eph. 2:10, where it is translated "workmanship." Let us consider this passage in
its context:

"For by grace are ye saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.For we are His workmanship [Gr., poyeema], created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them" (Eph. 2:8-10).

Romans speaks of the poem of creation, Ephesians of the poem of redemption, and the latter is the more wonderful. An old hymn says: "’Twas great to speak a world from
naught; ’tis greater to redeem."

In this poem of redemption which God has composed, we believers too often want to change some word or phrase. We would like this or that in our circumstances to be different. Ah, but this would destroy the meter and meaning of God’s new creation.

Thank God, when we believers go to be with Christ, we will see the beauty and glory of the poem of redemption. Then we will rejoice that He did indeed "work all things together for good" for us.

God First

AND AS THOSE DAYS TURN INTO YEARS,
YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF WRAPPED UP IN THE WORLD,OR WELLED UP WITH TEARS.
LEAN NOT TO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING,
BUT UNTO THE WORD OF GOD.
FROM THOSE WORDS YOU WILL GATHER STRENGTH WHEN THE TIMES GET HARD.
LOVE EVERYONE
AS YOU SURELY LOVE YOURSELF.
AFTER THESE WORLDLY THINGS PASS AWAY,
YOU'LL OBTAIN A DIFFERENT WEALTH.
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
KEEP IN CONTACT WITH THE LORD
FOR THE DEVIL IS ALWAYS BUSY,
HE'S WAITING FOR YOU TO DROP YOUR GUARD.
PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD
DON'T GIVE ANY LESS THAN YOUR BEST.
BECAUSE GOD DON'T LIKE HALF STEPPING
AND YOU'LL MISS OUT ON BEING BLESSED.
IN HIS NAME THERE IS ASSURANCE
IF YOU JUST BELIEVE
BUT YOU MUST PUT GOD BEFORE YOU
THEN YOU WILL SUCCEED.

Rejoice in the LORD

God never moves without purpose or plan
When trying His servant and molding a man.
Give thanks to the LORD though your testing seems long;
In darkness He giveth a song.

I could not see through the shadows ahead;
So I looked at the cross of my Savior instead.
I bowed to the will of the Master that day;
Then peace came and tears fled away.

Now I can see testing comes from above;
God strengthens His children and purges in love.
My Father knows best, and I trust in His care;
Through purging more fruit I will bear.

O Rejoice in the LORD
He makes no mistake,
He knoweth the end of each path that I take,
For when I am tried
And purified,
I shall come forth as gold.

MY NEED

By Grace E. Troy

I thought I needed many things
Along life’s toilsome way,
When days were long and heavy cares
Left scarcely time to pray.

I thought I needed many things
For those I held most dear,
When they were sad and longed for rest
Or change of portion here.

When it was Thee, I needed Lord,
To satisfy my heart,
To fill my days with rest and peace,
And every grace impart.

And those I loved but needed Thee,
Not change of scene or place,
But faith just now, through sun or shade
Thy loving hand to trace.

Just Thee alone, My blessed Lord,
For every time and place;
Just Thee alone — until we all
Shall see Thee face to face.






"But my God shall supply all your need
according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
(Philippians 4:19)

HE GAVE HIS SON

By Ethel Clarkson


He might have given the starry realms
As purchase price for me,
But starry worlds could never take
My guilt and set me free.

He might have given all the world
Because He made it, too,
But worlds cannot for sin atone—
God knew that would not do.

The universe entire was His,
And that He might have given;
But blood alone can sin atone
And make me meet for heaven.

And so He gave His blessed Son
To die on Calvary;
No other gift could cleanse my soul—
Christ was His gift to me!




Herein is love, not that we loved God,
but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be
the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

THIS I KNOW


I do not know what next may come,
Across my pilgrim way.
I do not know tomorrow’s road,
Nor see beyond today;
But this I know—My Saviour knows
The path I cannot see.
And I can trust His wonderful hand
To guide and care for me.

I do not know what may befall
Of sunshine or of rain,
I do not know what may be mine
Of pleasure or of pain;
But this I know—My Saviour knows
And whatsoever it be,
Still I can trust His love to give
What will be best for me.

I do not know what may await
Or what the morrow brings.
But with glad salute of faith
I hail its opening wings.
For this I know—that in my Lord
Shall all my needs be met.
And I can trust the heart of Him
Who has not failed me yet.

THE BATTLE

by Janet Rose Martin

In my darkest hour
When everything's at its worst
That's when I must remember
To always put God first.


So I call upon my Father
So that I am not alone
For I cannot fight the enemy
In any way on my own.


The battle is not mine to fight
So I call upon my Defender
Knowing He is on my side
I can let myself surrender.


Satan is no match for Christ
He will surely be defeated
And Christ will be the victor
When the battle is,completed.


For now, the battle's over
And the Lord has won the fight
Allowing me to carry on
Through His courage and His might.
