DAILY BIBLE PROMISE

** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Jn 8:31-32

MORNING

If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the
herd, let him offer a male without
blemish: he shall offer it of his own
voluntary will at the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation
before the LORD. And he shall put
his hand upon the head of the burnt
offering; and it shall be accepted
for him to make atonement for him.

G OD will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering.--Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.--We are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.--A ransom for many.

No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.--I will love them freely.--The Son of God . . . loved me and gave himself for me.

He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.--He hath made us accepted in the beloved.

EVENING

Great is thy mercy toward me: and thou
hast delivered my soul from the
lowest hell.

F EAR him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.--They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: for the redemption of their soul is precious.--I have found a ransom.--God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

SNOOOOZE!

I take an afternoon nap everyday - I admit it! And as ancient as I am, I can get away with it, too. Actually, most folks would be benefited by a PM-siesta. After the morning's chores, I need a little snoozerino to clear the cobwebs out.

But I got tickled at some of the comments I have been reading in one of GD Watson's books, 'Beauty For ashes'. Speaking of some of the reasons for spiritual backsliding, he came to the subject of laziness (stupor), and had this to say;

"Lazy people are the ones who have to run to catch a train. Idle people, who work by fits and spurts, are always tired; and for every half-hour's work they want two hour's rest. Preachers who preach one sermon a week complain of sore throats and want long summer vacations; while those who are filled with Holy Love preach every night with a clear voice, and make a recreation out of conventions and camp meetings. We must not only be industrious, but be so in spiritual things, or we decline in Grace!"

Ha! Donchajustloveit when someone puts their finger right on something you've been trying to spit out for years, but could never just quite get your vocabulary-syntax around? Of course, (gulp!), he's talking about lil ole me, too ... (sheesh!).

Diligence! There is either a place for that word in our lexicon, or we have a fantasy for our religion, and a fraud for our god! We have Work(s) to do - so the Bible says!

Naps are great! But so is work. And the one with the other makes lots of sense!

WAKEY, WAKEY!!

DAILY HYMN (LYRICS & MUSIC)



JEHOVAH IS MY LIGHT

Jehovah is my Light,
And my Salvation near;
Who shall my soul affright,
Or cause my heart to fear?
While God my strength, my life sustains,
Secure from fear my soul remains.

When evildoers came
To make my life their prey,
They stumbled in their shame
And fell in sore dismay;
Though hosts make war on every side,
Still fearless I in God confide.

My one request has been,
And still this prayer I raise,
That I may dwell within
God’s house through all my days,
Jehovah’s beauty to admire,
And in His temple to inquire.

When troubles round me swell,
When fears and dangers throng,
Securely I will dwell
In His pavilion strong;
Within the covert of His tent
He hides me still the storm is spent.

Uplifted on a rock
Above my foes around,
Amid the battle shock
My song shall still resound;
Then joyful offerings I will bring
Jehovah’s praise my heart shall sing.

'SOUL FOOD' - an audio-book by G.D. Watson - Ch. 12 of 32

Chapter 12 - "SORROW FOR SIN"
-- G.D. Watson lived in England, in the early part of the 1900's --




All true sorrow for sin must be imparted to us from God, for He alone knows just how we should feel toward evil. There is something so wretched, so inconceivably awful, in sin, that it destroys our very capacity for any correct feeling toward it; and the Holy Spirit must impart to us, from the pure sensibilities of God, that holy grief, that fierce principal of sorrow for sin, which is the spring and safeguard of true godliness.

There are a great many degrees of sorrow for actual sin committed which are mingled with feelings of remorse, dread, guilt, fear of wrath. this degree of sorrow may have a great outburst of manifestation, but it is not the deepest form of grief for sin.

When there is a sorrow for the deep, hidden sinfulness of the heart, the very existence of God's love in our hearts makes us to grieve and mourn over the corruptions of our fallen nature. It is by the light of pardoning grace shining in us that we see the vileness and stubbornness of secret depravity; and our grief for our hidden sinfulness is keener and deeper than ever for our horrible actions, because this degree of sorrow is touched more strongly with God's sensibilities to sin, and because we more sensitively feel the utter meanness and stubbornness of the essence of sin. It is out of this sorrow for heart-sin that there springs thirst for universal purity.

Then, after we are pardoned and purified, even though the sting of guilt and the inward motives of sin are removed, there is planted in us, by the Holy Spirit, a finer and continuous sorrow for the dreadful fact and effects of sin. After we have been washed in the precious Blood, there will be times in holy devotion when the spotless character and goodness and majesty and tenderness of our Lord will so open up to our view that the hot tears will burst from our eyes, and a deep, tender, melting sorrow for the sad fact of our sin will go all over us.

This is not a human, but divine kind of sorrow. In human sorrow over sin there is a chafing, fretting, recrimination, self-denunciation, which is in itself sinful; there is denouncing sin in such a severe, sinful spirit as to add to the very sin that is being denounced. And so there is a poor, human sort of grief over sin by which we lash and fret and call ourselves hard names, which is only a heathenish form of grief. When God takes us up into sweet, holy union -WITH- Himself, we will see that it is as great a sin to fret and rage at ourselves as at our fellows. This deep, fixed sorrow for sin I now speak of is God's sorrow for it --- the sorrow that Jesus had for the sinfulness of sin, from the hour He clothed Himself in our flesh and bones. This kind of sorrow is deep, quiet, melting; it can blend itself with holy joy and praise, just as you can see a purple tinge in the finest electric light. This highest and Christ-like form of sorrow for sin may not always push itself up into our distinct consciousness, but if the Spirit possesses us, it is always in us as the unrecognized tones in music, or the shaded back-ground to every picture of divine grace. The more thorough our sorrow over sin, the more persistent will be our progress in holiness.

DAILY BIBLE PROVERB

Pr 11:20
"They that are of a froward heart (perverse mind) are abomination to the LORD:
but such as are upright in their way (blameless ways) are his delight."

DAILY POEM

"SEED CORN INTO GRAIN"

"We are too stupid about death. We will not learn how it is wages paid to those who earn; How it is the gift for which on earth we yearn --

To be set free from bondage to the flesh; how it is turning seed corn into grain, how it is wining Heaven's eternal gain, how it means freedom evermore from pain, how it untangles every mortal mesh.

We are so selfish about death. We count our grief far more than we consider their relief, when the great reaper gathers in the sheaf, no more to know the season's constant change; And we forget that it means only Life --

Life with all Joy, Peace and Rest and Glory rife, the Victory won, and ended all the strife, and Heaven no longer far away and strange!"

--The Watchman Examiner (a 19th Century Christian magazine)
