Saints Are Blessed in the Eternal Presence of Christ

“A great multitude … from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages,” cry out, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne” (Rev. 7:9–17). Faith-filled saints from every place and time, with unified voices, eternally magnify the Lamb of God. As His beloved children, we, too, “shall see him as he…

St. Simon and St. Jude, Apostles

“Stand and speak; do not hold back a word” (Jer. 26:1–6). The Word is always repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Luke 24:44)—great mercy and a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ (1 Pet. 1:3). “If they kept my Word,” says Jesus, “they will also keep yours; but if the world hates you,…

By the Voluntary Poverty of Christ, We Enter the Kingdom of God

To love and trust in earthly wealth is vanity. For nothing of this earth will last forever, nor can any of it grant eternal life (Eccl. 5:10). But the one who trusts in God is “occupied with joy in his heart” and is able to sleep in peace, “whether he eats little or much,” because…

We Praise God for Sustaining Life in and through His Word

The nation resounds with thanksgiving for the earth’s bountiful harvest, crops of wheat and grains, all beneath the canopy of God’s almighty care. But “man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord” (Deut. 8:1– 10). The Church is the vessel through which…

No Honour at Home! (Mark 6:4)

Trials Can Be Good! (Lamentations 3:22-33)

The Lord Jesus Is Faithful, and in Mercy He Raises You Up from Death to Life The Lord is faithful. His steadfast love never ceases, and “his mercies never come to an end” (Lam. 3:22–23). To keep us in repentance and to make our faith grow, He causes grief for a while, but He does…

Strengthen Your Faith! (Mark 4:35-41)

The Word of Christ Bestows Peace on His Creation through His Forgiveness of Sins In his anguish and affliction, Job must be reminded that, as a finite creature, he is in no position to question the Maker of the heavens and the earth. Job’s “words without knowledge” are unable to penetrate the wisdom of the…

The Church Grows! (Mark 4:26-34)

The Cross of Christ Is the Tree of Life, Which Bears Abundant Fruit after Its Own Kind The parables of our Lord convey the mysteries of the kingdom of God to those who are “able to hear it,” that is, “to his own disciples,” who are catechized to fear, love and trust in Him by…

Dependence vs. Independence! (Mark 3:22-27)

Jesus Has Defeated the Devil and Released Us from the Bondage of Sin and Death The devil deceived us, enticing us to disregard and disobey the Word of God and driving us to hide “from the presence of the LORD God.” But the Lord, in His mercy, promised a Saviour, who would set Himself against…
