“To persevere, trusting in what hopes he has, / is courage in a man. The coward despairs.” [Euripides, 422 B.C.]

 

Love’s eternal flame is inextinguishable—death’s horrors are unable to kill it; life’s busyness cannot suffocate it; demonic opposition will not quench it; fear never overshadows it; worry only intensifies it; hell’s hatred will not…

“A person can be a person and not know Greek or algebra. But a person cannot be a person and not know God.” (Anonymous)

To be the person God intends us to be, it is imperative that we travel the Way to the Truth of Life [John 14:6].

“There is no secret—only—only I am always at his feet, and he is always in my heart.” (A Hebridean princess)

 

Easter, the high and holy day of the Christian faith, has come and gone. But Jesus hasn’t. He promised to stay with us always, and He is still near. He promised never to abandon us, and He is still our faithful friend. The resurrected Christ keeps holding on to us—reaching out, embracing, calling our name. Jesus invites us to follow Him, to go on a…

Cleanliness is next to Godliness?


“Cleanliness is not next to godliness nowadays, for cleanliness is made an essential and godliness is regarded as an offence.” (G. K. Chesterton)

 

To worship the holy God acceptably, we must prepare our inner being by washing with the holy water of His Word. Meticulous hand washing is meaningless ritual without inside purification. Dirt-free hands are good hygiene, but a pure heart is heaven’s prerequisite for holiness.
