But Not On Sunday Night

I love the church that Jesus bought, I know that it is right I go there Sunday morning, But not on Sunday night.   I love to sing the songs of God, Such worship must be right, So I sing on Sunday morn, But not on Sunday night.   Bless the pastor’s message, Lord, Give […]

The Young Christian

I cannot give it up, this little world I know, The innocent delights of youth, the things I cherish so; “Tis true I love my Lord, and long to do His will But oh! I may enjoy the world and be a Christian still. I love the hour of prayer, and love the hymns of […]

God’s Creation

When I think of God’s creation I think of clean beautiful streams Flowing in one direction A never ending stream Which unto rivers descending. I think of ducks So peacefully and gracefully swimming At night, when the moon Upon the water is gleaming. I think of fish which swim about And the animals God created, […]

God’s Creation

When I sit here thinking of the Wonderful things I see, It gives me memories of what God has created for me; The beautiful springing flowers And all the glorious showers, As I look up in the night There will be a wonderful sight. Now seeing the birds soar in the air, Oh, doesn’t it […]

Our Calling to Walk in Love

Love without deeds and actions is no love at all, but only a hollow word.  The true love of God in you will be seen in concrete deeds, in how you live, in a life of obedience to God. That is true of God’s love.  Its reality is seen in what it did, for God’s […]

Prayer

Lord, make my life just one long prayer, My need of Thee my constant care, At home, abroad, at work or rest; My aim to lean upon Thy breast.   Lord, make my life just one long trust, My table full, or ne’er a crust, Knowing that He who died for me Still lives that […]

Right to Life

Letter to Editor by Crystal Kooienga I am writing to express my disappointment in the article “Is Right to Life Right?” in the December 1990 issue of the Beacon Lights. I think the most glaring mistake that the writer makes is her belief that Right to Life condones violence and disrespect for those placed in […]

Role Modeling

Television stars and sports stars are people who daily influence our lives.  We look up to them and sometimes even idolize them.  They soon become our role models.  We do what they do.  We sing their songs, dress like they do, and act like them.  Is this right?  What is a proper role model?  Who […]
