Unto the Hills – July 31, 2013

We are not worthy to approach the holy throne of God except through Jesus Christ.  The person who comes with confidence to the throne of grace has seen that his approach to God has been made possible because of Jesus Christ.

For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

Ephesians 2:18

Charles Haddon Spurgeon shares, “The man who knows that his hope of glory will never fail him because of the great love of God, of which he has tasted, that man will hear music at midnight; the mountains and the hills will break forth before him into singing wherever he goes.”

By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Romans 5:2

Unto the Hills – July 29, 2013

There is no conflict in the heart where Christ abides, for His words, “Peace I leave with you” (John 14:27), have been proven in the test tubes of human experience over and over again, in the lives of those who have trusted His grace.

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:1

Unto the Hills – July 28, 2013

The very presence of counterfeits proves the existence of the real.  There would be no imitations without a genuine product.  God’s original design has always had imitators and counterfeits!

For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.  Amen.

Romans 1:25 NASB

Conscience is God’s lamp within man’s breast. Its very existence within us is a reflection of God in the soul of man.  Our consciences can be purified as we allow God’s Word, the Bible, to clean and enlighten them.

I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men.

Acts 24:16 NKJV

Unto the Hills – July 26, 2013

Many have been told to look for spiritual thrills, but the Bible says that “a man is justified by faith,” and not by feeling.  A man is saved by trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross and not by bodily sensations and religious ecstasy.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.

Acts 16:31

Christians can rejoice in tribulation because they have eternity’s values in view.  When the pressures are on, they look beyond their present predicament to the glories of heaven.

They returned…strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.

Acts 14:21,22 RSV
