Happy People

“Happy is that people whose God is the Lord”, Psalms 144:15.   People are seeking happiness universally.  Men of all ranks and stations pursue it.  The general inquiry is: How shall I find it?  To this we hear answers like:  “Seek in gold.  Everything can be had for a price.  “Another say: “Seek it in […]

In Sunshine and Storm

In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.” Ecclesiastes 7:14 NIV It’s easy to feel happy on a sunny day, when all is well, the birds are singing and […]

How True! How True

The greatest need of the church, today, is not a “Pulpit That Will Draw”, but “Pews That Radiate”. Where were you Sunday night? Yes and where were you Sunday morning and Wednesday evening? Were you somewhere, doing something for which you had more enthusiasm than you had for being a Christian? Not only is the […]

Without health! Without wealth! Without fame! Without a great name! Without learning! Without culture! Without beauty! Without friends! Without ten thousands of other things! BUT HE CAN NEVER GO TO HEAVEN WITHOUT CHRIST!


After the Sunday evening service we were returning home with our little three-year old grandson.  Quitta had just said; “He got a lot of hugs and hugged a lot of people.”  There was a moment or two of silence after which the three-year old said:  “Grandmother; How do you hug God?” Sometimes the super-simplicity of […]


Your whole family needs to be in bible study every Sunday.  All of you should stay for worship.  You all should come back Sunday evening and on Wednesday night.  Which of you can truthfully say; we do not need Christian influence in our lives?  We should each have the mindset of feeling that the Sunday […]


Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things”. Philippians 4:8 Here Paul gives us a picture of a peaceful, happy mind, and the formula for making it thus. By thinking on the true, […]
