I Am Thankful

Thankfulness

RR-November 23, 2016     We read in Philippians 4:6, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” We also read in Colossians 4:2 that our lives should be characterized with a spirit of thankfulness, that we are to “continue in…

Prayer and Supplication with Thanksgiving

RR-November 23, 2016     Listen to the words we find in Philippians 4:6, “… by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” What is prayer and supplication?

RR-November 22, 2016     By Martin Lloyd-Jones   The Gospel announces that rest is only to be found in a [true saving] knowledge of God, because God has made us, and He has made us in such a way that we never can know rest apart from Him. As Augustine of Hippo said so…

Give Thanks

November 21, 2016 Thanksgiving is already here again. It’s hard to believe how fast time flies. It’s such a special time, yet sometimes the significance of giving thanks gets lost on us. We can rattle off a string of things that we’re – genuinely – thankful for, like family, friends, a home, a job, clothes…

Mere Creatures of Dust

RR-November 21, 2016     By M. H. Bradford (from the book, “Salvation: By the Will of the Sinner, or By the Will of the Savior?”)   We must never forget that God is the Potter and we are the clay! We are mere creatures whom God created “of the dust of the ground” (Genesis…
