Verse of the Day

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” (Philippians 2:3-4)
Christian Discipleship

"I will follow thee..." Matthew. 8:19

"I will follow Him." Do you remember when you first made that promise--or was it a vow? You believed you were utterly sincere. Nothing was too much for Jesus. In the light of the Cross, in the light of forgiveness; in the experience of forgiveness; in the joy of gospel peace; in the fullness of your personal surrender, you made the vow and truly meant it. Yet the truth is you did not fully know what was involved. How much you had to learn in the school of Christ! Have you been disappointed in Him as well as in yourself? Is it possible that you have become a bit "worldly wise" while teaching the mechanics of Salvation? Have you become a little cynical? Has the foolishness of preaching become to you foolishness? We perhaps long for New Testament Power, but we often forget how Power expresses itself. We want to be a powerful minister or home missionary or ordinary Christian witness and to feel the thrill of being useful and breaking through. We often want the power of Christ more than the Cross of Christ, or the power without the Cross. Perhaps we feel we've heard all this before, in fact preached it' If we put into words the thoughts that brood in the heart they may say--"It doesn't work". In a sense we are right. "It doesn't work." Power without a Cross never works. The Bible has much to say concerning Power. Remember Paul ... "That we may know Him and the power of His Resurrection". Yes, Him first, and the Resurrection Power second.

Mr. Thomas Manton's Epistle to the Reader of the Westminster Confession of Faith and Larger and Shorter Catechisms

Christian Reader,

I cannot suppose thee to be such a stranger in England as to be ignorant of the general complaint concerning the decay of the power of godliness, and more especially of the great corruption of youth. Wherever thou goest, thou wilt hear men crying out of bad children and bad servants; whereas indeed the source of the mischief must be sought a little higher: it is bad parents and bad masters that make bad children and bad servants; and we cannot blame so much their untowardness, as our own negligence in their education.

How To Profit From The Bible
Written by New Testament Christian . com   
The Bible is God's written communication to us. Apart from it, we cannot know the Lord or how to live for Him. If you want to grow in your faith in Jesus Christ, then you must read and study the Bible. As Christians, we need to understand what the Bible is, appreciate all that it can do for us, and practically use the Bible in our daily lives.
