The challenge in that day will be to trust in God's strength and power rather than trusting our own ideas and ingenuity. The point that Paul drives home to Timothy is that ultimately it is the gifts and power of God that allow us to stand even in hard times. Of course we do not have to wait for afflictions to come to trust in God and rely fully on Him. We can begin living with that approach in the current day, and indeed that is the kind of living that will bring honor and glory to God even as it prepares us to take a stand. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Every aspect of God's nature and character is perfect, and because He is infinite, we cannot possibly understand or comprehend all that He is. The Bible tells us much about Him, and there are a few traits that are especially highlighted for us. One of those is God's great love for us. There is a great deal of misunderstanding about God's love. Some view God's love as a blanket approval no matter what they do or how they live. Others view God's love as something that does not particularly apply to their lives.
Neither of these views are correct. The Bible presents God's love as an active force that is involved in our lives on a personal basis. God does not just love the world—He loves each of us as individuals. And that love is so powerful and strong that it moved Him to action to provide our salvation. Remember that even before the world was created, God knew that man would sin and what the price of our salvation would be. Yet despite that enormous cost, He brought the world into existence. Yes, our God is holy and hates sin and we must never lose sight of that truth , but He is also kind and merciful and loving, and ready to forgive when we call on Him.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
A pastor once asked Dr. John R. Rice during a question and answer session if he expected the Lord to return during his lifetime. On that day, the angels made a promise to the disciples who watched. Though many years have passed, that promise is just as certain today as it was when it was given.
God does not operate on our timetable, and Jesus will surely return right on schedule. It is important for us not to be lulled into complacency by the fact that Jesus has not yet returned. Jesus pointed out that such false thinking can quickly lead to bad conduct on our part. Each day of our lives should be filled with a conscious awareness that it may be this day that the Lord returns. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence. Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? Then I was very sore afraid, And said unto the king, Let the king live for ever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?
Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit working in our lives, and it can and should be present no matter what our circumstances. Yet at the same time, there are legitimate sources of sorrow. When the king asked Nehemiah why he was sad, Nehemiah laid out the reasons for his grief—the sad state of the city of Jerusalem. He was not content to merely feel badly about the need, but wanted to do something about it. As we look at the world around us, there are many things that should fill our hearts with sorrow, and motivate us to action.
Jesus was heartbroken over the refusal of the people to listen to the message of salvation that He offered. Jesus did not just feel sorrow for the lost, but He went everywhere preaching the gospel and offering salvation to those who would accept the message. He has left us the assignment to continue that work, and we must be about this vital business. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:".
There are some religions that encourage their followers to don distinctive clothing as a quick means of identifying their belief when they are out in public. Whether it is special head wear, colored robes, or something else, their garb declares their belief. Christians are given a different set of instructions for standing out from the crowd.
While our dress should certainly always be appropriate and honoring to the Lord, it is our conduct rather than our clothing that should primarily identify us as followers of Jesus Christ to unbelievers. It is meant to guide our words, our work, our thoughts, and our interactions with others.
Throughout the history of the church, men and women of God have lived in a sacrificial loving way that could not be mistaken. They were often opposed and persecuted, sometimes even killed for their faith but they did not waver. In both life and word, we should be unmistakably followers of Christ.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
I am grateful for every good Christian book I have read. Each commentary, devotional, instructional book that has taught me valuable lessons has been a help to my life and service for the Lord. I have even written a few books to share principles with others.
But all human books pale in comparison to the unending riches of the Word of God. It is the true and unfailing guide for us—the place where God has given us the resources and wisdom to shape our lives to His purposes and glory. God's people need a renewed commitment to God's Word in our day. We need to read it more. We need to memorize it more. We need to meditate on it more. We need to read what God says and then put it into action. We need to do the things the Bible says to do and avoid the things it says to avoid. We need to be people who live out the Word in our daily lives.
Christian living is not a matter of our strength of will to overcome the world. It is a matter of letting the Bible continually guide our living day by day. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? When Jesus wanted to highlight the vital importance of prayer, He did so with a parable of a widow seeking justice from a judge who wasn't at all interested in her case.
Yet in her desperation, she kept coming and asking for help. Eventually the judge was worn down by her persistence in asking, and granted her request. This seems like an odd choice for an illustration of prayer. God is perfectly just in everything He does and He loves and cares for each of His children. But we have to remember the point of the parable. Jesus used this parable primarily to tell us what happens if we stop praying—we faint. There are prayers that require persistent, repeated praying before the answer comes. The Old Testament tells us that Daniel prayed for twenty-one days for an interpretation of a vision he had received.
It was only later that he learned that the delay was because of a spiritual battle of which he knew nothing. There are times when we do not feel like our prayer will be answered, but unless God closes a door as He did when Paul requested the removal of his thorn in the flesh, we should continue to pray faithfully until the answer comes. Continuing to pray demonstrates that we have not lost our faith in God and keeps us from giving up. One of the major problems that modern Christianity faces is that far too many believers are ignoring the spiritual warfare we face day after day.
A soldier on the battlefield does not casually get up in the morning and go outside with whatever he happens to pick up. Instead he carefully puts on his protective gear and checks his weapons to make sure that he is ready for battle. Paul wrote to the Ephesians and laid out for them the armor that guards a Christian from the attacks of the enemy, and then he concluded with a powerful instruction on the importance of regular, faithful, and consistent prayer.
The moment we get out of bed in the morning we enter a battlefield that is just as real as any that a soldier has fought on. Every day we face an enemy who is committed to our destruction. Praying is just as much a part of our defense as the truth that girds our loins, the breastplate of righteousness, and the helmet of salvation. Prayer expresses our utter dependence on God. Prayer is crucial to preparing us to face the enemy each day. Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
There are many things changing in the society around us. Beliefs that used to be widely and commonly accepted are under attack. These changes can be seen not just in the world, but often in churches as well. However, the Bible makes it very clear that God is truth and that He never changes. Of course there have been occasions when people have mistakenly interpreted Scripture or falsely claimed they were teaching the truth when they were teaching error instead.
But the Bible, properly understood and applied, is always right, and it stands firm no matter what human reasoning and wisdom may decide. It is the supreme judge, from whose infallible decision there is no appeal. Right is right though all condemn, and wrong is wrong though all approve. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
There they saw Moses and Elijah and heard the voice of God from Heaven confirming that Jesus was the Son of God and that He alone must be worshiped and glorified. Peter never forgot that experience, and when he was inspired to write his second letter to the persecuted Christians, he reminded them of that wonderful day. Then he made the vital point that the written Scriptures are more certain even than Heavenly voices. The Bible never changes, and it has everything God knew that we would need for our lives. We do not need some outside sign to follow, but rather to fill our minds with the truth of the Word and then obey it.
Because the Bible is divinely inspired rather than produced by men, it is stable and completely without error. We can always trust what it says. In addition to delivering the Children of Israel from the cruel bondage of Egypt, God brought the people into the land of Canaan and gave them victory over their enemies.
As a result, they had a place to live that was already developed—cities and towns with houses they did not have to build, and vineyards and farms that were already productive. Yet in spite of the great blessings they received, they quickly turned from following God to worship the idols of the people around them, bringing judgment down on their nation as a result. It is much the same today. We live in a land that has been greatly blessed, yet we are neither grateful nor obedient.
Every time we disobey God, we are showing that we do not appreciate Him, despite the bountiful blessings we have freely received from His hand. God is patient and kind, but He will not tolerate the ingratitude of our disobedience forever. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Almost two thousand years ago, Peter correctly described the spirit, not only of his age but of ours as well.
People do not like to consider that they will have to give account of their behavior, so they shape their thinking and ideology to avoid dealing with the truth. This allows them to soothe their consciences, but it does not change the fact that there is a God and that He is the Judge. Peter wrote that these people deny two cardinal truths—the Creation and the Flood. If God is not the Creator then He does not have the right to dictate how men should live. If there was no Flood then there is no need to fear that He will judge and punish sin.
Yet despite the claims of man, both of these things are reality. God really did make everything we see around us out of nothing simply by speaking it into existence. All men should recognize the authority of God and turn to Him in repentance before it is too late. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. On His last night with the disciples before His crucifixion, Jesus gave them a wonderful promise for the future. Though He was going away, they would one day be with Him once again in the place He was preparing for them. They did not fully understand what He was saying that night, but the promise is just as secure for us today as it was the night it was made. One day we will be with Jesus in Heaven, because He has promised to receive us there through His grace. Hunter recounted the story of a Christian doctor many years ago who was called to the bedside of a dying patient who was also a Christian.
The man asked the doctor what to expect in the next life. As the doctor thought about how to answer, his dog that he had brought with him started scratching at the door. I left him downstairs, but he has grown impatient, and has come up and hears my voice. He has no notion what is inside this door, but he knows that I am here. Over and over during the descriptions of the life of Christ given to us in the Gospels we find an expression repeated that perfectly sums up the nature of our Saviour.
The Greek word that is used for moved is very strong. It indicates being gripped by something or picked up and carried. The compassion that Jesus felt for those who were lost and scattered moved Him to action. All around us there are people with eternal souls who have no concept of the seriousness of their lost condition. They go through their days, mostly oblivious to spiritual things. They may go to a church on special occasions or holidays, or perhaps they do not go at all.
They see little need for salvation, because they do not realize that they are lost. It should break our hearts. We know that God has commanded us to be witnesses. Each of the Gospels include an account of what we commonly call the Great Commission, and it is repeated at the beginning of the book of Acts for good measure. God wants us to witness to the lost. But the driving force for evangelism must come from the heart.
We should follow the example of Jesus and allow the knowledge of eternity to break our hearts for those who are not saved. What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent.
The Christian feels that he may delight himself not only in what God is, but also in all that God has done in the past. When we speak in gladness of what God has done for us, it builds and strengthens our faith, and encourages others to trust God for their needs to be met. God delights in the praises of His people. He gives us deliverance and provision because of His love for us, but also to fill our hearts with gladness so that our mouths will be filled with praise and thanksgiving.
Of course there will be times of grief and mourning, but the Christian who is habitually sad is not living with a conscious appreciation of all that God has done for him. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. Although this never happened, a civil defense system was set up to prepare people in advance. Windows were covered with dark curtains or blankets, meant to be sure that whatever light was inside was completely hidden from the outside world.
The greatest gift that anyone can ever receive is salvation. The grace of God takes lost sinners and moves them from the family of Satan into His family without our doing anything to deserve or earn it. You would think that anyone who had received such a gift would tell everyone about it, but in far too many cases Christians accept the free gift of salvation and then never mention it to anyone. The Lord commands us to share the gospel and let our light shine before the world.
In truth, the darker the world around us becomes, the more important it is for us to share with others the only hope for their future—salvation through Jesus Christ. And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus. And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord. Some listen to the presentation without making any commitment one way or the other. Some raise all kinds of questions and objections, more interested in arguing than hearing.
Some listen and want to know more. And thankfully there are some who immediately respond and put their faith in Jesus as their Saviour. Why do people respond to the gospel in the ways that they do? God has commanded us to be faithful to witness, but He has not given us responsibility for the results. God has given man the freedom to accept or reject the gospel message. Once we have presented the message, the rest is up to Him. I think it is wise to learn how to answer common questions people may ask and know how to lay out the plan of salvation from the Scriptures. But soulwinning is not an exercise in selling something.
Soulwinning is a matter of faithfully delivering the message of the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our job is to share the message and then allow the Lord to work in hearts. And how shall they preach, except they be sent? But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Paul made a clear case for the vital importance of everyone who is involved in the work of God in reaching the lost with the good news of the gospel. The first principle, of course, is that there is only one plan of salvation.
Jesus is the only way to Heaven. This is the message that the lost world must hear. But there are many different roles in the work of the gospel. Not all of us are preachers or missionaries where we proclaim the gospel in foreign places or to large numbers of people at a time. But all of us can witness to family members, friends, neighbors or co-workers.
And all of us can do our part to equip and send those who are taking the gospel to others. Sometimes we lose sight of how vitally important each part of the body of Christ is. There are no little or unneeded members of the body. Each of us has a role to play, and God calls us to do what we can in His work. For who will hearken unto you in this matter? And it was so from that day forward, that he made it a statute and an ordinance for Israel unto this day. While David and his warriors were away from their city, enemies came and captured their wives and children and took them away.
David and his men pursued them, but some of the men were too weary to continue and stayed behind to guard what was left. Once the victory was won, a dispute arose over whether those who did not fight on the battlefield should have part of the spoils of the victory. David insisted that all of his men—those who were on the front lines and those who supported them—would have an equal share in the rewards. I stand in the pulpit and preach on Sunday morning, but the bus drivers, ushers, cleaners, maintenance people, and others are just as actively involved in the ministry of Lancaster Baptist Church.
They may not be as visible, but they are vital. The great Scottish preacher Alexander MacLaren commented on this truth. With an illustration from the life of the great missionary William Carey when he asked for prayer support. They that hold the ropes, and the daring miner that swings away down in the darkness, are one in work, may be one in the motive, and, if they are, shall be one in the reward. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. While salvation happens in a single moment it is immediate rather than something that takes place over time the process by which God refines our hearts to make us more like Jesus is ongoing throughout our lives.
We do not suddenly become everything that God means for us to be. Instead we must take on the work of killing the old nature. This is not something we do through will power of self control, but through the Holy Spirit. We are commanded to be continually mortifying—putting to death, the flesh.
We are born of God, we are made partakers of the divine nature. That makes Heaven certain for one who is truly born again. But the old nature is our daily problem, our grief, and our struggle. May God give us grace to recognize the old nature, not to lie about it, not to falsely claim that it is gone, but to face it day by day and conquer it and buffet it and mortify it, to the glory of God. Even after salvation, our flesh struggles against us to get us to do wrong.
We can walk in victory only as we are faithful to fight this battle daily. And thankfully, God provides the strength and the grace to do so. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Our society has many means of measuring success and value. Some people focus on financial measures so that making or having more money equates to being a better person. God measures success differently, and it is His standard that we should be using, both in how we look at ourselves and in how we look at others. The principle Paul lays out for us is that we must reject pride. Instead we should view ourselves in relation to the body of Christ. The focus should not be on what we have done or on what talents we have, but on the God who graciously provides all of the abilities and possessions we have.
Rather than measuring ourselves by those around us, we should be measuring ourselves by the way Jesus lived. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. We want to have our own way rather than to be in subjection to authority. Yet over and over God highlights the importance of our willingness to go His way.
Peter used the illustration of clothing to highlight this truth for us. In the same way that our clothing is what people see when they look at us, humility should be the trait that we show to the world. Biblical humility is a realization that we bring nothing to the table that God did not give us in the first place.

All of the talents and gifts that we have are the result of His grace, not our own merit. And whatever we accomplish for His kingdom is equally to His credit rather than ours.
Let us lay aside our pride and be willing to serve God however He chooses so that when others look at us, they see humility in action. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. David knew what it was like to stand in the face of opposition. He went out alone to face the giant Goliath when his own brothers criticized his motives. He had to flee for his life from Saul when the bitter and jealous king tried to kill him though David had served him faithfully. He had to flee from his own son, Absalom, who rebelled against him.
There will be times when we will face the choice of whether to do right or not when we are being critiqued rather than encouraged. In those moments, we still must stand for the truth, even if it means that we stand alone. There will always be critics, but we do not have to heed their voices. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is no effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly.
As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? The churches in Galatia to whom Paul wrote were dealing with an influx of false teaching on the topics of justification and sanctification.
Paul could have let this go to keep from making waves, but instead he publicly rebuked the false teachers and pointed out that they were erring from the truth. Why did Paul react this way? I believe the answer is found in his desire to please God. If we are seeking the approval of men we will be tempted to trim our message so that it does not point out sin and error. However if we seeking the approval of God, we will stand firmly for the truth. We see this principle illustrated in the lives of the three Hebrew children.
When Nebuchadnezzar made his golden idol and commanded everyone in the kingdom to bow down and worship it on pain of death, they refused. When he gave them a chance to reconsider and spare their lives, they still refused. They did not care for the approval of men, or for the consequences of doing right.
Their faithfulness to God is a model we urgently need in our day. Many voices are calling on churches and pastors to stop identifying sin and speaking out on moral issues. While that might make us more acceptable to men, it would be a betrayal of the God we serve.
Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. Scripture gives many commandments and instructions. Some view these rules as antiquated ways to keep people from having fun. All of these approaches are misguided. God views His commandments as being given for our benefit, and when we arrange our lives in obedience, we are blessed as a result. Some of these blessings are things that we receive directly from God, but there are also blessings that come as we avoid the consequences of actions that God has forbidden. Sometimes people say they are being punished when what is really happening is that they are simply experiencing the normal results of their wrongful behavior.
We have no reason to expect God to deliver us from the consequences of sin that we have willfully chosen. For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens. I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations.
Every one of us is a teacher. We may not lead a school class of young children or a Sunday school class of adults, but we are still having an impact and influence on those around us. Often we are not aware at the time of how many people are paying attention to the things that we do and say, and only later do we find out how we have helped—or harmed—someone along the way.
Each day we have the opportunity to choose the words that come out of our mouths. The psalmist expressed his desire to have his words praise and exalt God, and that should be the goal each of us has for our lives. Our words are a vital part of the legacy that we leave behind, as they shape not only the way that we are remembered, but the way others think about God. Jesus warned those who are careless with their words of what they will face as a result.
We have multitudes of things for which to praise God, and those are the words that should fill our speech—verbal, written, and electronic. Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. Winthrop's reference to the "city upon a hill" in A Modell of Christian Charity has become an enduring symbol in American political discourse.
Winthrop's reputation suffered in the late 19th and early 20th century, when critics pointed out the negative aspects of Puritan rule, including Nathaniel Hawthorne and H. Mencken , and leading to modern assessments of him as a "lost Founding Father". Political scientist Matthew Holland argues that Winthrop "is at once a significant founding father of America's best and worst impulses", with his calls for charity and public participation offset by what Holland views as rigid intolerance, exclusionism, and judgmentalism.
Winthrop gave a speech to the General Court in July , stating that there are two kinds of liberty: natural liberty to do as one wished, "evil as well as good," a liberty that he believed should be restrained; and civil liberty to do good. Winthrop strongly believed that civil liberty was "the proper end and object of authority", meaning that it was the duty of the government to be selfless for the people and promote justice instead of promoting the general welfare. Many modern politicians refer to Winthrop's writings in their speeches, people as diverse as John F.
Winthrop's descendants number thousands today. His son John was the first governor of the Saybrook Colony , and later generations of his family continued to play an active role in New England politics well into the 19th century. He is also the namesake of squares in Boston, Cambridge, and Brookline. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other people named John Winthrop, see John Winthrop disambiguation. Mary Forth m.
