How The Ten Commandments Work


My family was attending a worship service punctuated by a powerful sermon on the Ten Commandments. After its conclusion, I turned to my wife Luella and said, “I’m so glad our children were here to listen to that sermon!”It happened to me without even noticing: I placed myself outside the circle of …

Dealing With Guilt


DO YOU EVER STRUGGLE with feelings of guilt? Are you haunted by guilt-ridden moments in your life and wish you could undo the past? Have you found that the more you try to ignore your guilty conscience, the stronger it grows? Wrestling with guilt can be a paralyzing, life-consuming battle that …

The Christian's Love To Christ


The following is an excerpt from The True Christian’s Love to the Unseen Christ, written by English pastor Thomas Vincent over 300 years ago.  It is observed, and it is greatly to be lamented, that there is, of late years, a great decay in the power of godliness among those that are sincere; and is …

Arise, my soul, arise!

A New Year’s Hymn

For this reason, open-eyed Christians have always recognized that this world's best gifts are but "trifling" gifts, and small. Therefore, they have refused …

Hark! the Herald Angels Sing


This majestic hymn, and the eternal truths it expresses, are so much more than just another Christmas carol. As you celebrate the birth of Christ, drink in deeply both the wonderful truth of "God and sinners reconciled" and the fervent prayer: "Adam’s likeness, Lord, efface; stamp Thine image in …
