Mrs. Meyer is a wife and mother in Hope Protestant Reformed Church of Walker, Michigan. There is a truth about which we as parents must teach our children.

In these last days it is imperative that we see this truth clearly, increase in knowledge of it, and grow in love for it. It is crucial, as well, that...

Not only is there unity in truth, there is...

Mrs. Meyer is a member of Hope Protestant Reformed Church in Walker, Michigan. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Gen. 1:1). Familiar words we know so well. But what a blessing it is when we ponder the depths of those words! What a comfort for the child of God to know that his heavenly Father is the Creator of all things. To know that time began in His hands, and time will end in His hands. Yea, to know His grasp is on eternity itself! Every word, every jot, and every tittle is important in Scripture....

Mrs. Meyer is a member of Hope Protestant Reformed Church in Walker, Michigan. As we have seen in a previ- ous article, “in” is a tittle of a word that is worth our consideration. The supreme object of this little preposition is found, always and ultimately, in only One — Jesus Christ our Lord. It is in Christ that we live and move and have our being. And it is only in Him. This is true for us and for our children. And this has implications for us as we raise our children, for we must be living as those...

Mrs. Meyer is a wife and mother in the Hope Protestant Reformed Church of Walker, Michigan In previous articles we have attempted to scratch the surface of what it means to live in Christ, including what the implications of this are for us as we live in our homes. For we must live in our families and homes as we indeed are in Christ. This must be evident in our lives, even as a ray of light is evident to our eyes as it reflects off a facet of a gem. And Christ’s work is as a gem! The problem...

Mrs. Meyer is a wife and mother in Hope Protestant Reformed Church, Walker, Michigan. Treasures. We have them. No, not gold or rubies or pearls, though we might actually own some of those things. No, our treasure is spiritual in nature. We know this is and ought to be the case: “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Col. 3:2). But here is the problem—we by nature are not spiritual. We are spiritually dead. By nature all we see are the gold and rubies and pearls. That new man within us has to fight the...

Ah, thou pristine globe, fresh from thy Creator’s hand; embryo within the waters of thy firmament land. Pure and warm, the very essence of exquisite beauty. “It is good,” proclaimed He then, though not His last words to thee. Would thy newborn innocence remain – alas, ’tis lost, e’en worse – thou cursed! And thou, what hast thou done, but sheltered, fed, and nursed the wicked ones! Yet – thou art promised new! Washed with cataclysmic dearth; thy baptism is un- qualed upon the earth! Noah and his sons beheld this picture of the seal. What will we see when...

Mrs. Meyer is a wife and mother in Hope Protestant Reformed Church of Walker, Michigan. There is a lie about which we as parents must warn our children. It is a lie that is increasingly and blatantly set before us in a myriad of tantalizing, appealing, and high-pressured ways. It is the fundamental lie of the Antichristian kingdom, the threat of which continues to increase against us both in time and magnitude. In these last days it is imperative that we see the difference, and that our children know, from little on, of which kingdom they are citizens. The picture...

Mrs. Meyer is a wife and mother in Hope Protestant Reformed Church of Walker, Michigan. Come, children, let’s take a walk together. There is something we want to show you. It is because of our great love for you that we want to show you this. Not that you are our first love, though. No, there is an object of our love that we love even more than you. Does that scare you? It ought not. In fact, if we did not have this “first love,” our love for you would be worthless. It would do you no good at...

Mrs. Meyer is a wife and mother in Hope Protestant Reformed Church of Walker, Michigan. The first enemy we encounter on this earth is our own sin. And our first attack upon this foe consists of searching for it in our own hearts and lives and repenting of it. This is a spiritual battle, for this is a spiritual enemy. Nevertheless, there are some physical steps that can be taken in order to avoid this enemy. If we want to avoid drunkenness, we won’t let our feet walk into the party or the bar. If we want to avoid the...
