June 25 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. — Genesis 1:27

An Anthropic World

The 500th anniversary of Copernicus' birth was celebrated in 1973. Copernicus showed that the earth was not at the center of the universe, a scientific finding used to displace the earth and man from their presumed place of central importance in the cosmos. In celebrating the Copernican revolution, his followers were celebrating the demise of man and, more importantly, the demise of God. However, at the celebration Brandon Carter, a highly... More
June 24 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. — Proverbs 16:32

Anger Management

When it comes to anger, someone has said that people tend to be of two different types. There are those who blow up and there are those who clam up. Some people do both. Paul deals with that in Ephesians 4:26. He says, " Be angry but do not sin ." There is such a thing as righteous anger but the sin related to anger is when this bursts forth in all sorts of vicious speech. When we rail against another person, give place to malice, explode,...

June 23 Who is He—this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. — Psalm 24:10

An Absolute God

What exactly are absolutes? If you were to check the word "absolute" in Webster's Dictionary, you would discover that "absolute" comes from the two Latin words ab ("from") and solvere ("to set free") from which we also get the word dissolve. So absolute means "to be set free." But set free from what? It means to be set free from imperfection. To be pure. It means to free from any admixture. It is perfect. It means to be free from... More
June 22 In this is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. — 1 John 4:10

Propitiation

God's forgiveness is astounding. I hope that you realize that all of your sins are wiped away by a God who cannot forget anything because He is omniscient and knows all things. One of the great mysteries of the Scriptures, a paradox indeed, is that He has said, He will cast all our sins " into the depths of the sea " (Micah 7:19) and He will remember them no more (see Jeremiah 31:34). In Christ we have the assurance that all of our sin has... More
June 21 Rejoice always. — 1 Thessalonians 5:16

Rejoice in All Circumstances

Trouble comes to us all, saved or unsaved. But people react differently. We know that the same sun that bakes bricks melts butter. Adversity causes some people to become embittered and hardened, to become hateful toward God and man. Others it sweetens and softens and enriches. The world finds it very, very strange that even in the midst of the most painful circumstances, there can be rejoicing. In fact, Paul tells us that we can be... More
June 20 … rejoice with the wife of your youth. — Proverbs 5:18

A Father Who Loves the Mother

The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. If you are going to be a godly dad, you need to forsake all others with heart and mind and soul and love your wife. We are to love our wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for us. It is in loving each other that parents create a stable and good home. Besides loving his wife in order to be a good father, a man must commit to be there for his children. It... More
June 19 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night declares knowledge. — Psalm 19:1-2

The Gospel in the Stars

The zodiac has twelve major signs. The first is Virgo, depicting a woman who has in her right hand a branch and in her left hand sheaves of corn. In Hebrew, she is called Bethulah, which means "virgin," even as virgo , from Latin, means virgin. Everywhere her name is the same. She is called "the virgin." This is of course, the picture of Mary, the virgin mother of Christ. So we have Virgo, the virgin woman, holding the branch and seeds in... More
