And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able to admonish one another. Rom. 15:14 Full of goodness! Amazing fruit of God’s marvelous grace! For such it is, indeed! Fruit of the wonderful grace of Him, Who quickeneth the dead and calleth the things that are not as if they were, is this goodness of which the Church of the Lord Jesus is said to be full. And in order to see a little of the wonder of it, just recall whence this same Church, that is...

Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: that ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers; and that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. . . . Rom. 15:5-9 God is glorious! His alone is the...

Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: that in the dispensation of the fullness of time (or: unto a dispensation of the fullness of time, R.V.) he might gather together in one all things in Christ (or: to sum up all things in Christ, R.V.), both which are in heaven and which are on earth. Eph. 1:9, 10 Glorious mystery of His will! Hid from the beginning, but now made known in Christ, through the apostles and prophets. The mystery of the final end God had...

Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. Ps. 51:9 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide and mine acquaintance; we took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company. Ps. 55:13, 15 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the Scripture might be fulfilled: he that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me. John 13:18 That the Scriptures might be fulfilled! All the Scriptures must be fulfilled,...

But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren, beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thess. 2:13, 14 But! Amazing contrast! Similar to that which is found in the second chapter of First Peter, where the apostle writes about those that are appointed to stumble over the Stone and then addresses the Church: “But ye are a chosen generation”...

But Thomas, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. . . . etc. John 20:24-29 Marvelous resurrection of the Lord! Historically real, yet far transcending the things than eye can see and ear...

Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh to fulfill the lusts thereof. Rom. 13:13, 14 Even now, let us walk as in the day! Even now, while the day is not yet, while the night, though far spent, still lingers, and the day, though at hand, still tarries. Let us walk as in the day, that day, the day of Christ! For, of that day the apostle had been...

And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand; let us therefore cast off the works of darkness and let us put on the armor of light. Rom. 13:11, 12 Dawn is calling! The night is far spent! The day is at hand! Awake out of sleep! Put off your night-garments and dress for the day! Always there is the call to the saints in the world to walk worthy of the Lord...

“Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.” John 17:24 Do you meditate on what Jesus is doing for us in heaven today? At the beginning of this lengthy discourse (John chapters 14-17), He tells His disciples, “I go to prepare a place for you…that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2, 3). At the end of the discourse He utters His high-priestly prayer, and concludes with...

Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Rom. 13:8 Apparently paradoxical debt of love! You owe it, you pay it, you still owe it! A debt which accumulates as you pay, which never decreases though you pay! An obligation which, though you always faithfully fulfill it, is never fulfilled! Owe no man anything, render unto every man his dues, above all do not fail to render to every man the dues of love, yet acknowledge that you still owe the debt of loving one another. In your various and...
