May 26 One of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned with a loud voice glorifying God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. Jesus said, "Were not the ten cleansed? Where are the nine?" — Luke 17:15-17

The Sin of Ingratitude

This passage shows something of the nature of ingratitude. It is an astonishment to God that His beneficences do not, indeed, call forth expressions of gratitude. Ingratitude is a very serious sin. This is certainly brought out in the first chapter of Romans, where Paul describes the sinfulness of the heathen world and catalogs a great list of sins. Read the last half of the first chapter of Romans and you will see how the heathen world had... More
May 25 I will delight in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word. — Psalm 119:16

The Indestructible Word of God

We are living in a time when Biblical ignorance is widespread. Except for a small proportion of those who faithfully and daily study the Word of God, Americans are a Biblically illiterate people. But the Bible is the greatest of treasures. It is the indestructible Word of God, the unconquerable Word of God. Dr. A. Z. Conrad said this about the indestructible Word of God: Century follows century— there it stands . Empires rise and... More
May 24 Then Peter came to Him and said, "Lord, how often shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven." — Matthew 18:21-22

"To Forgive is Divine"

Not only do we have a great reward in Heaven when we forgive, but we present a great witness right here. Nothing witnesses so powerfully to the glory and truth of the Gospel as when a Christian forgives his enemy. Some years ago there was a war between Muslim and Christian Turks. One of the Christian officers was captured and became a prisoner of a Turkish official. This Muslim officer treated the Christian with the utmost cruelty and... More
May 23 …do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of temptation in the wilderness. — Hebrews 3:8

The Wrath of the Lamb

I am sure that in the great day of the Second Coming, there will be millions who will cry, "Oh, God, have mercy upon me; oh, Lord, help me." But my friends, it will be too late. It will be everlastingly too late for the door of grace will now be irrevocably shut. There will be no time for repentance then. There will be no tomorrow. There will only be the endless ages of eternity without God and without hope. People will see that the Son of... More
May 22 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. Books were opened. — Revelation 20:12

The Great Day of Judgment

At the time of the Second Coming, many will wake up on that day ignoring Christ, as they have ignored Him for years, and then suddenly, without warning, unexpectedly, there shall come a sound that will chill the blood of every unbeliever, but will cause God's own to leap with joy. It will be the sound of a trumpet, as the Scripture says. It will be a sound that will be heard around the world. Then suddenly there shall appear in the heavens... More
May 21 Concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. — Matthew 24:36

Fanatics and the Second Coming

It is unfortunately true that there have been some in the lunatic fringe who have dwelt continuously upon the doctrine of the Second Coming and brought it into disrepute. There have been others who have ignored it completely, and still more who have distorted and perverted it. And yet it remains an inescapable and ineluctable fact that Jesus Christ will come again. Over 300 passages in the New Testament alone testify that Christ will come... More
May 20 God is faithful, and by Him you were called to the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. — 1 Corinthians 1:9

Kept Through All These Years

When I look back at my life, what amazes me is that, throughout all these long and sometimes difficult years, Christ has been with me, He has never forsaken me; He has kept me in the way everlasting. I am amazed, considering how weak I am, that I have not been totally overwhelmed by temptation and sin. I have seen others who have fallen by the wayside. I thank God that He has kept me through these years. Why? "I have prayed for you that your... More
