O Zion, Haste

On this final day of July, my ‘missions’ month I conclude with a great call to spread the news of salvation to the entire world. O Zion, haste, thy mission high fulfilling, To tell to all the world that God is Light; That he who made all nations is not willing One soul should fail […]

Jesus Saves! Jesus Saves!

Across the top of the Carey Baptist Church in Kolkata is the wonderful message of hope, “JESUS SAVES.” For years this church has declared to Calcutta (now Kolkata) that there is no other name under heaven, given among men whereby we must be saved. JESUS is the Saviour! This news needs to be taken to […]

Here Am I, Send Me

In jest, I’ve often said, “God loves me and everybody else has a wonderful plan for my life.” Isn’t it easy to be more concerned about others… e.g. “Oh, I wish Bill was here to hear that sermon today.” Or as Peter asked Jesus, “Lord what shall this man do?” as he expressed his curiosity […]

I confess I don’t ‘voluntarily’ sign-up […]

Firmly Stand!

In a world of shifting values, Christ-followers are called to “stand firm.” This wonderful hymn was sung regularly in my home church and its truth still echoes in my heart. Let it challenge you to, as Jude exhorted, “contend for the faith which was once for all entrusted to the saints.” Firmly stand for God […]

Facing A Task Unfinished

“The reason I left you in Crete was that you might straighten out what was left unfinished….” Paul’s explanatory note to Titus gives me hope that even apostles didn’t get ALL their planned work done. There’s still more to do. Today’s hymn reminds us that the strength to complete the task assigned to us by […]
