The High and Noble Privilege

 

“What is that, oh Christian mother

God hath ‘trusted to thy care?

 

In thine hand to love and nurture

Sweetly innocent and fair!

 

What a high and noble privilege!

Bring them up to know God’s Word;

 

They in turn will call thee blessed

When they’ve learned to trust the Lord!”

CUVINTE PLINE DE FARMEC…..

“Cuvinte pline de farmec îmi clocotesc în inimă, şi zic: Lucrarea mea de laudă este pentru împăratul! … Tu eşti cel mai frumos dintre oameni, harul este turnat pe buzele tale.”

Psalmul 45.1-2

 

Mulţi dintre credincioşi mărturisesc că la rugăciune şi la citirea Cuvântului lui Dumnezeu se zidesc puţin iar la Masa Domnului de multe ori sunt neputincioşi să aducă adorarea cuvenită Domnului. Nu se întâmplă oare aceasta din cauză că inima în viaţa practică nu gustă comuniunea cu Domnul şi că prea puţin, în adevărată supunere, se aştern la picioarele Domnului ca să asculte glasul Lui şi să privească măreţia Persoanei Sale?

Trebuie oare să ne mai mirăm că există puţină putere, iar la Masa Domnului este puţină laudă şi puţină bucurie? Oare putem aduce în ziua Domnului un coş plin de fructele cereşti dacă toată săptămâna nu am călcat pe pajiştea cerească? (Citeşte Deut. 26.1-11).11. Apoi sa te bucuri, cu levitul si cu strainul care va fi in mijlocul tau, de toate bunurile pe care ti le-a dat Domnul Dumnezeul tau tie si casei tale.

Cât de schimbată era situaţia cu Maria! Ea nu se pierdea în gândurile proprii şi nu a fost copleşită de împrejurări. Inima ei a fost în întregime centrată pe Mântuitorul. Inima o împingea să verse mirul curat pe picioarele Domnului – gest prin care a dat deplina expresie a admiraţiei şi a adorării faţă de El.

Ce trist este pentru Domnul, când venim cu coşul gol şi cu inima goală, din cauză că nu am căutat dragostea Lui şi nici nu am dorit să cunoaştem Persoana Lui. „Domnul este al tău, adu-i închinăciunile tale” scrie în vers 11 a Psalmului nostru. Ce frumos ar fi dacă s-ar găsi şi la noi această dependenţă de Domnul nostru Isus Cristos.

Marele nostru învăţător, ISUS CRISTOS, nu a făcut un pas, nu a rostit o vorbă şi nu a făcut cel mai neînsemnat pas fără Cuvântul lui Dumnezeu. Se poate spune şi despre tine la fel?

GOD’S CHILDREN NEED NOT FEAR

 

Our Daily Bread’s daily devotion for today is about Psalm 121.  The writers, informative and a blessing as always, note that this Psalm  was “sung” by pilgrims on their journey to celebrate one of three “Godatory” (“mandatory” just does not seem to be appropriate) feasts in Jerusalem (Ex. 23:14-17).  For some, if not all, the trip was dangerous due to the terrain and the threat of robbers lying in wait (Lk. 10:30).  This Psalm served to comfort the travelers by reminding them trust in our all-sufficient God. 

Psalm 121:    

[1] I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

[2] My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

[3] He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber.

[4] Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

[5] The LORD is thy Keeper: the LORD is thy Shade upon thy right hand.

[6] The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

[7] The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.

[8] The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Today’s devotion pointed out that the Hebrew שָׁמַר (shamar), appears six times in five of the eight verses of this Psalm.  It is translated “keepeth” in verses three and four, “Keeper” in verse five, and “preserve,” twice in verse seven, and once in verse eight.  In each, the context determines which English word is the best translation.  And, although the King James uses three different words, all clearly show that the Jewish travelers were counting on their all-powerful God to protect them. Whatever “journey” you are on today, whether it be illness which threatens as “through the valley of the shadow of death,” or in the presence of your “enemies,” or merely being hungry and thirsty, Almighty God will not fail you. God has given His children His Word on it!

TEACHING MORE THAN THE ABC’S

 

 

Someone posted the following on Facebook yesterday, and I thought it was not only beautiful, but also a great way to teach the children their alphabet.  In fact, it is an alphabet about the Alpha and Omega, so it serves to glorify Christ as well!  I have changed it slightly.

THE HOLY ALPHABET

 

Although things are not perfect

Because of trial or pain

Continue in thanksgiving

Do not begin to blame

Even when the times are hard

Fierce winds are bound to blow

God is forever able

Hold to what you know

Imagine life without His love

Joy would cease to be

Keep thanking Him for all the things

Love imparts to thee

Move out of “camp complaining”

No weapon that is known

On earth can yield the power

Praise can do alone

Quit looking at the future

Redeem the time at hand

Start every day with worship

To “thank” is a command

Until we see Him coming

Victorious in the sky

We’ll run the race with gratitude

Xavier’s God most high

Yes, there’ll be good times and bad, but

Zion waits in glory, where none are ever sad!

 

Train up a child in the way he should go,

and when he is old, he will not depart from it!

Lord Lord? I Never Knew You – Paul Washer

Paul Washer preaching on the Narrow Way

http://illbehonest.com
I’ll Be Honest, will you?

Matthew 7:12-21 – 12 So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

13 Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
A Tree and Its Fruit

15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheeps clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.
I Never Knew You

21 Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name? 23 And then will I declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.
