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
June 18 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have established … — Psalm 8:3

A Surprising Witness from Antiquity

The Bible condemns astrology. It says that we are not to consort with astrologers; we are not to consult them; we are not to have anything to do with astrology. And, yet, behind all of that, there is a great revelation of God and His glory and of His salvation in what has come to be known as the zodiac. This is often described as a circle of animals. But that is not really what the word "zodiac" means. Rather it comes from a primitive root,... More
June 17 So then each of us shall give an account of himself to God. — Romans 14:12

A Day of Reckoning

The Bible makes it plain that we shall, each one, have to give an account of ourselves. It will not be your wife, your husband, your parents, your neighbors, church members, or preachers—it will be you yourself that you will be giving an account of in that great day. No other statements will be allowed. I guess the Corinthians are still around today. How many people walk out of church and make comments such as: "Well, what did you think... More
