Reading through the whole Bible ought to be a basic discipline for every Christian.  This is the Book we love.  It is our basis for life and godliness.  How can we live in the way God wants if we don’t read it?  This year,  I chose the chronological schedule, and loved it!  Years ago I had read through a printed Chronological Bible but had forgotten how helpful this method was.   Job is read toward the beginning of the year since Job lived...

It is tempting to despair.   In light of the  violence and corruption and blatant disregard of the rule of law, I was beginning to despair.  What can one say about times like these?  Pithy sayings and declarations of our own “pure” thoughts and motives fall short.  There have been worse times.  There may be worse times yet to come.  Perhaps we are seeing the beginning of the end of our great Republic, or perhaps God will lead...

I love Ecclesiates.  If I could summarize, it is this:  Enjoy your blessings from God as a righteous believer. There are no guarantees in life, for we do not know the mind of God who controls and directs in the course of history and in the progress of your life.  Our life is in His hands alone. “For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God: no man knoweth either love...

It is September, and I just finished reading Jeremiah.  I was so blessed!  Really.  I know the book of Jeremiah can be a difficult read, but it is also full of encouragement.  God feels the same way about the sins of Israel and the surrounding pagan nations as He does today.  We like to think that God is longsuffering and merciful here in our Age of Grace, but He was longsuffering and merciful in the Old Testament too.  Many times He waited a...

In Part 1 of this article, we looked at The Child of God under Law.  I drew a correlation between Law and Childhood because that’s what Paul did in Galatians 3:21-25.  God has treated us differently in the Age of Law than He does in the Age of Grace.  Likewise, parents treat their children differently in the “Dispensation of Childhood”...
