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
June 16 "Where have you come from, Gehazi?" And he said, "Your servant went here and there." He said to him, "Did my heart not go with you when the man turned from his chariot to meet you? Is it a time to take money, and to take garments, olives and vineyards, sheep and oxen, male and female servants?" — 2 Kings 5:25-26

Sin Has Consequences

Many people think they can get away with all sorts of crimes today. Perhaps they do for a while. But in the big picture, God sees, and He will one day bring it to light—whether in this life or the next. In 2 Kings 5, Gehazi ended up with Naaman's leprosy because of his greed. When David sinned, he was forgiven—yet "the sword" never left his house. Even though God forgives us for our sins when we come to Him with repentance, God... More
June 15 … Whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. — John 3:15

Belief vs. Unbelief

We have been exposed repeatedly to the humanistic thesis that belief in God is irrational and unbelief is rational. Is that true? I would like to expose it for what it really is: an unmitigated fraud, an unalloyed lie that rises right up from the father of all lies. To believe that God has made us, that there is a purpose for our lives and that we go to be with Him when we die—that is the Christian world-view. This belief leads to... More
June 14 You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. — John 8:32

Absolute Truth in a Relative World

Sadly, a majority of Americans today believe that truth and morality are relative. Even many professing Christians have fallen prey to this myth. Virtually all of our high school students have learned that there are no absolutes. You probably heard about the teacher who said to his class, "You can know nothing for certain." One student responded, "Teacher, are you sure?" He said, "I'm certain." Sometimes students don't realize that... More
