Word for the Day

Glorifying God has respect to all the persons in the Trinity; it respects God the Father who gave us life; God the Son, who lost his life for us; and God the Holy Ghost, who produces a new life in us; we must bring glory to the whole Trinity.

Freedom

Freedom is a word ever on the lips of Americans.  Yet it is a word that precious few, even those who claim the name of Christian, know truly.  Because freedom is not opened by the working of our will.  The door to freedom is Christ and Christ alone, and the key is death to self and living unto God.  And few there are that find it.

Christ, Our Burnt Offering Part 3

And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. 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.
(Lev 1:1-4 KJV)

Do you understand the requirement of worship and its impossibility for us?

The beginning of wisdom

It is an indispensable duty incumbent on Christians, to be fearers of God.  “Fear God!” (Eccles. 5:7).  “That you may fear the glorious and awesome name of the Lord your God!” (Deut. 28:58).  This fear of God is the very foundation of a saint.  One can no more act as a Christian without the fear of God–than he can act as a man without reason.
