Will you enter the Kingdom?

“Except a man be born again he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”
“Ye must be born again.”
How is it with us?
We must believe the gospel;
we must have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,
or we cannot enter the kingdom.

The first thing is to believe the gospel.
Fellow-sinner, if you are not yet on the side of Christ,
have you seen you are a sinner?

(George Müller)

Open-mindedness

Open-mindedness is greatly valued in today’s world, but it is also misunderstood.

Reflect on these words from G.K. Chesterton: “Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.”

What Satan Dreads

“Satan dreads nothing but prayer.  His one concern is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion.  He laughs at our toil, he mocks our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray.”

(Samuel Chadwick)

Does your money have wings?

It is sometimes said that money talks.  One person replied to that statement by remarking, “All that my money says is good-bye.”

Consider these verses: “Do not toil to acquire wealth; be discerning enough to desist.  When your eyes light on it, it is gone, for suddenly it sprouts wings, flying like an eagle toward heaven.” (Proverbs 23:4-5, ESV)

Intelligent Design

A fact that is often overlooked is the realization that we carry evidence of intelligent design in our bodies.  Our incredible design cries out for an even more incredible Designer.

Augustine noted: “Men go abroad to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.”
