To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens; So states the Word of God as may be found in Ecclesiastes 3:1. In verse 2, and continuing to the end of the book, there are ample illustrations how we mortals are restricted to, are subject to, the regimentation of the time factor in our lives. The various aspects one may or can experience in a lifetime are thus rehearsed in our ears. Also the vanity of all earthly things and the excellency of heavenly wisdom is herewith set forth. But read for yourselves the conclusion...

By the time these lines appear in print for general distribution the world in these northern climes will be or will have recently been in that period of the year when men turn to such a silly thing as an irrational ground hog for predictions as to the length of the winter that still holds sway over our land at the present time. Maybe it is not that ground hog so much as it is the sun that shines or fails to shine brightly that day. Or perhaps it is even the cloud cover that prevents the seeing of a...

For the believing child of God who clings to Christ by faith, the truth that he is accounted righteous before God is of the greatest significance. The principle that he whom God declares to be righteous is righteous, is a matter of pure grace to him. The believer knows himself to be a guilty sinner as he is in himself. The truth that God justifies the ungodly in Christ affords him a rich comfort and an unshakeable confidence. It is a confidence which he has, not of himself, but of grace.

This is our sacred duty and responsibility. Christ, for example, states it very emphatically when He says to His disciples: “Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him” (Luke 17:3, 4). “Be...

Rev. Key is pastor of the Protestant Reformed Church of Randolph, Wisconsin. Belonging to Christ’s exaltation is His ascension into heaven. Forty days after His resurrection, our Lord Jesus Christ, in His human nature, ascended into heaven in the presence of His disciples, after having given them the promise that He would come again and take them and all His own unto Himself, that where He is, there we may be also. The fact that Christ is no longer on earth may seem to be contrary to that which would be for our spiritual good. Wouldn’t it be better if...
