The Debt is Paid July 1, 2019

Robert F. Smith, is believed to be the richest black man in America, worth $5 billion. In May, he informed the graduate class at Morehouse College, in Atlanta Georgia, that he would be paying off all their student loans. His generous act illustrates a great truth found in the Bible. Each of us owes a sin debt. The Bible declares that “all have sinned,” and “the wages of sin is death.” But the Heavenly Father, has made a wonderful offer. He has paid our spiritual debt. Paul wrote “…Christ died for the ungodly.” The refrain of an old gospel hymn puts this truth beautifully.” Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.”

Our Amazing Solar System June 28, 2019

Is the Bible God’s Word, or a human production? Is creation a result of evolution? If you wonder, please stay tuned. Patrick Moore was a distinguished astronomer, knighted by the Queen, the author of more than 30 books on astronomy. In A Guide to the Planets, he wrote that the earth “…is the only world in the solar system upon which we could survive.” Why did he say that? Well, if the earth were smaller or larger in diameter by as little as ten percent, no life could exist. For the earth to be habitable, it needs an adequate supply of light and heat, a uniform distribution of water and an atmosphere of proper composition. Our planet has all three. How come? Millions of giant accidents? The first verse in the Bible, explains clearly. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Lost and Found June 26, 2019

Rollo May was an American psychologist and author. He is well known for many of his books, including “Man’s Search for Himself”, and “Love and Will”. He once wrote, “It is ironic that humans run faster when they have lost their way.” Whether we know it, or admit it or not, we have all lost our way. Jesus’ words spoken long ago, shed light on May’s thoughts. Our Saviour said, “The Son of man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” He referred to our spiritually lost condition. But He also gave us the answer to our “lost-ness”, writing, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. In other words, the only way to move from being lost to being found is by becoming personally related to Jesus, by faith.

Little Royal Archie June 24, 2019

Last month, Prince Harry and Meghan welcomed the latest royal baby. Little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born into a privileged life. This year many more beautiful children will be born, some of whom will come to a world of neglect, suffering and abuse. But no matter what our station in life, it is wonderful to remember that in God’s sight all are equally valued by Him. Although circumstances may seem to favour some, God in His mercy and grace extends His love to all. John’s gospel reminds us that “…God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. Someone once said, “The ground is level at the foot of the old rugged cross.” There’s room for all.

No Buying Back Our Past June 21, 2019

Oscar Wilde, the Irish playwright, novelist, essayist and poet, once wrote, “No man is rich enough to buy back his past.” He was correct. Someone has written, “The past is gone—forget it. The present is here—live it. The future is before us—prepare for it.” But we can’t forget our past, since it impacts our present. While we live in the present, we must realize that its time to prepare for the future. Since “There is none righteous, no not one”, we cannot “buy back our past”. Thankfully God intervened and bought back our past. Paul explained to the Christians of His day, “And you, who were dead in your trespasses …God made alive… canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its …demands. This He set aside, nailing it to the cross.”

Technology and Morality June 19, 2019

“How would private behaviour change if we felt that the world could hear every wicked thought?” That was Elizabeth Renzetti’s question in a Globe and Mail newspaper article. It is not primarily our wicked thoughts or other bad behaviour, though, that keeps us from pleasing God. It’s unbelief and failure to accept Jesus as our Saviour that alienates us from God. Pleasing Him is “not by works of righteousness that we have done…” Faith is the main event with God. The book of Hebrews says, “Without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe…” And Paul reminds us that good deeds that Christians perform are the outward results of a faith already within. God’s Word says, “By grace you have been saved through faith…”

Name Changes June 17, 2019

Names are constantly being changed. Undertakers are now often called morticians; garbage men are called sanitary engineers. The intent is to rid the occupations of a supposed lack of dignity. Another word that has been pushed aside and replaced is SIN. We are embarrassed by that word, being more comfortable with “moral failure” or “lapses of judgment.” But morticians are still undertakers, sanitary engineers are still garbage men. And sin is still sin, no matter what we call it. God’s Word, the Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”, and “Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.” But though “the wages of sin is death, the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
