Verse of the Day
“The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your
Exodus 14:14 KJV
“The Bible is God’s chart for you to steer by, to keep
you from the bottom of the sea, and to show you
where the harbor is, and how to reach it without
running on rocks and bars.”
Howard Ward Beecher
“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.”
Will Rogers
The Lord’s Day
The Lord’s Day is my tower of strength. It is the
day of days for soul refreshment. In my
moments of quiet meditation I have often asked
myself, “How long would strength remain in me
and God’s reality remain in my heart, if it were
not for the soul-renewing worship of the Lord’s
Day?” How wise my heavenly Father was to
provide this day for His children.
As the Lord’s Day dawns and the hour of
worship approaches, my hungry soul grows
eager with anticipation. It is at this time that
God has especially planned and provided
spiritual food for my hungry soul. This hour is
too important to be consumed with the trivial
and non-essential. It is not the time for
entertainment. I want to hear a life-giving and
soul-saving message from God. I want
instruction on how to overcome temptation,
reassurance of God’s love and providence, and a
brief glimpse again of the glory of the Father’s
I do not ask that the message be easy, only that
it be true. Let God’s man point my way to duty,
and let me be wise enough to follow it. Let the
messenger lay bare my sins, and let me be
humble enough to repent. And, oh, my God,
grant that thy messenger may never lose the
courage to faithfully rebuke my sin, or
otherwise it may destroy me forever. If there is
sin in my life, may he know that he has not been
true to my eternal interests until he has
discovered it to me and helped me to find
Gospel Light (October 1958)
“The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in
Jerusalem. Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities, all is vanity. What profit hath a man
of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? One
generation passeth away and another generation
cometh; but the earth abideth for ever.”
Ecclesiastes 1:1-4 KJV
Remind Them!
Peter wrote, “Therefore, I will always be ready
to remind you of these things even though you
already know them, and have been established
in the truth which is present with you. I
consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly
dwelling to stir you up by way of reminder”
(2 Peter 1:12-13).
Preachers and teachers know that their
listeners are aware of many spiritual truths, but
we need to keep reminding them of those
truths. Why? Because:
1. People forget (Heb. 12:5; James
1:24; 2 Pet. 1:9)
2. We need to rekindle the flame (2
Tim. 1:6; 2 Pet. 3:1).
3. We often stop doing what is right (2
Tim. 2:14).
4. We need to rethink some subjects
(Rom. 6:1-7, 15:15).
Reminding stirs up the heart, steers us back to
God’s principles and sends us back to work for
God. Preachers and teachers may repeat facts
and commands you have heard for years, but
they are doing their job-reminding you!

“The Bible redirects my will, cleanses my
emotions, enlightens my mind, and quickens
my total being.”
