Q. 27 What dost thou mean by the providence of God? A. The almighty and everywhere present power of God, whereby, as it were by His hand, He upholds and governs heaven, earth, and all creatures; so that herbs and grass, rain and drought, fruitful and barren years, meat and drink, health and sickness, riches and poverty, yea, and all things come, not by chance, but by His fatherly hand. Q. 28 What advantage is it to us to know that God has created, and by His providence doth still uphold all things? A. That we may be patient in...

“And the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the second time, saying, Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee.” Jonah 3:1–2 The second time! God’s word came to Jonah the second time! Do we realize the wonder of that? The wonder of the amazing grace of God? For in these verses we see that God not only recovered His errant, run-away servant in the way of working repentance within him and forgiving him for what he had done, but also that He restored him to the office of prophet...

“But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.” Jonah 1:3 The biblical narrative of Jonah sets forth some of the most wondrous attributes of God: His absolute sovereignty and might, His great love and mercy, and His amazing grace shown to undeserving sinners. And it does so in some very striking ways. Accordingly, this prophecy has many important...

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1 It is a fundamental tenet of the Christian religion that doctrine is inseparably connected to life. The two go together. Without one, there will not be the other. That tenet is perhaps nowhere more clearly set forth than in Romans 12, right after the holy apostle had spent the first eleven chapters of this epistle defending, defining, and explaining that precious gospel doctrine of justification by faith alone. For what does...

“Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die; Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord? Or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.” Proverbs 30:7-9 This is the time of year when many who read this magazine observe Prayer Day with a worship service, in which we look to God to bless us in the year ahead so that our...

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” Matthew 1:21-23. These verses from the Word of God have been and continue to be one of precious comfort to His people through the ages. For in the fullness of...

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11 These verses continue the thought from verses 5-8 of the mind of Christ, who humbled Himself and made Himself of no reputation. From the state of Jesus Christ’s deep humiliation, climaxing with His death on the cross, these verses we...

“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13 This text is very important in helping us understand our salvation. To begin with, because God calls us to work out our salvation, it rejects the idea that Christians are inactive spiritually, and should sit back and let God “do all the work,” so to speak. On the other hand,...

“The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” Genesis 49:10 These are the words of an astounding prophecy from our great God Himself! These words spoken by Jacob were a prophecy. To be sure, they were not just a dying man’s words, though it is true that Jacob was dying. And in his dying, we know from Hebrews 11 that he worshiped God, leaning upon the top of his staff and blessed the sons of Joseph. A tremendous twofold act of...

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:5-8 The mind of Christ! These verses, together with verses 9-11, constitute the classic proof text for the doctrine of the humiliation and exaltation of Christ....
