Reformation Day Thoughts

A very rich young Israelite came running to Jesus. We read that Jesus loved this young man. Every word which he spoke to him was infinite love in the form of instruction and correc­tion. Strange as it may sound, this young man has a troubled soul, a troubled and accusing conscience. He did not yet […]

Come, Ye Children

Mrs. Gertrude Hoeksema has very beautifully written the Bible Story book Come, Ye Children. This book is the third that she has written. The other two are: 1) Therefore Have I Spoken, a biography of her father-in-law Herman Hoeksema, and 2) Peaceable Fruit, a book about her experience as house­wife, mother, and veteran Christian School […]

Protestant Reformed Teacher Goes to Ulster

On August 14, 1984, Mr. and Mrs. Deane Wassink and their four small children left for Northern Ireland, where Mr. Wassink will teach the 1984-1985 school year in Covenant Christian School of Newtownabbey — about 15 miles from Belfast.

God’s Knowledge

“God … is perfect in knowledge.” (Job 37:15-16). Probably it was Protagoras, one of the earliest heathen philosophers, who claimed what amounts to the very opposite of the above, namely, “Man is the measure of all things.” This comes out of Agnosticism (a cowardly Athe­ism). But current, blatant, hard-core Atheism makes the same foolish contention. […]

Loving Your Wife for Christ’s Sake

The Critique article on “Loving Your Wife for Christ’s Sake” was very nice for the most part. Except the paragraph where the wife is referred to as the weaker vessel. As for wives not being able to handle stress as their husbands do or “too large a mental burden”, Hogwash! Time and again the Bible […]

Adoration

I love, my God, but with no love of mine, For I have none to give; I love Thee, Lord, but all the love is Thine, For by Thy life I live. I am nothing, and rejoice to be Emptied and lost and swalled up in Thee. Thou, Lord alone art all Thy children need, […]

Fill our hearts with thy great love; Grant us peace like that above; Help us in our helplessness; Ease our burdens, aid distress; Keep our hearts from evil free. Hallelujah! Praise to thee! Hallelujah! Praise to thee! Give us grace to do […]

The Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5:22, 23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meek­ness, temperance: against such there is no law.” A beautiful person is described in these verses. It is the beauty of holiness. It is the beauty of a person in whom dwells the Holy Spirit. You can know […]

The Importance of Attending Societies

As people of God, we know our calling is to serve the Lord with our hearts, souls, and minds. In order to serve God aright, we must know Him. How do we, as Christians, gain that knowledge? And what do we do with it? Implanted in all men is the conscious knowledge of God. All […]
