Care—how heavy is this little word of four letters! Everybody is more or less affected by it. Yes, it rests upon the heads of the rulers, the employers and employees, the teachers and students, the fathers the mothers; no class is free from it. How shall we escape care? The answer lies in the discovery that there is a Being all-powerful, wise, and loving who makes those who trust Him the objects of His care. Over against the human cry, “Does God care?” let us put the divine answer: “Casting all...

Life Indeed!

Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, ye have no life in you" (John 6:53) In this verse of Scripture, the act of eating is mentioned. There is nothing imaginary or mystical about eating, and when we eat a definite action is performed; we have taken something in, and in taking it we possess it in the truest sense of the word; we appropriate the thing eaten in the fullest measure, so that it becomes part and parcel...

Christ is Risen Indeed!

The Truth of 1 Corinthians 15 Verses 1-8: The certainty of salvation, as preached in the glad tidings, rests upon the sure foundation of the death of Christ for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and also upon the fact of His resurrection on the third day, according to the Scriptures. The statement as to His burial was needed to emphasize His death. There was nothing vicarious in His burial, [k] else proof from the prophetic word could have been adduced in support of the fact of His burial....

To Whom Little Is Forgiven, The Same Loveth Little!

We may well ask the question as to why the apostle Paul in writing to a privileged and faithful assembly such as the Ephesians, thought it was necessary for them to remember what their state and condition was, in the sight of God, before they were converted. ‘That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise. Having no hope, and without God in the world’. I believe the Lord’s words to that dear woman in Luke chapter...

Victory Over Death

Death is a very solemn matter; its inroads are universal, and it affects mankind irrespective of age, culture, nationality or position. It is said to have "passed upon all men," the result of all having sinned (Romans 5:12). Satan has used its power on men "who, through fear of death, were all their lifetime subject to bondage," (Hebrews 2:15). The first mention in the Scriptures of the actual word itself sets forth the bitterness and sorrow connected with it; Hagar exclaims "Let me not see the...

He will Rescue You!

The seas were rough and frigid the afternoon of December 17. After checking the surface for nearby ships, the crew of the 800-ton submarine USS S-4 ended her run by bringing up her periscope directly in the path of an onrushing former U.S. naval destroyer. The destroyer’s Officer-of-the-Deck immediately ordered the engines reversed at full throttle and jammed the rudder over trying to avoid the still-submerged portion of the rising sub. A jarring collision ripped a gash four feet long and two feet...
