NEAR TO THE HEART OF GOD! – Hebrews 4:12 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

NEAR TO THE HEART OF GOD!

Hebrews 4:12​​ ​ –  Devotional

Hebrews 4:12

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

If you were to look through some of my photograph albums, many of them show me with one of our children or grandchildren lying on my chest sound asleep. In fact many times both the child and I are sound asleep. Perhaps I have the type of chest that is just made for cuddling. I would much rather have the reputation of being a cuddler than a curmudgeon. (That’s a fancy word for an old cantankerous person). I think the warmth of my chest and the steady beat of my heart is comforting to babies.

In the early years of the 20th Century there was a pandemic of diphtheria in the US that claimed many lives. In 1903 Cleland McAfee was chaplain and choir director at Park College in Parkville, Missouri. As the pandemic swept the area, two of his nieces died from the dread disease and the others in the house were quarantined. In his hour of grief he wrote the hymn NEAR TO THE HEART OF GOD and had the college choir sing outside the house.

When you pass through the valley of the shadow of death let these words bring the quiet assurance we need.

NEAR TO THE HEART OF GOD

1. There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain: O Jesus, blest redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us who wait before Thee,
Near to the heart of God.

2. There is a place of comfort sweet,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where we our Savior meet,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain: O Jesus, blest redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us who wait before Thee,
Near to the heart of God.

3. There is a place of full release,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where all is joy and peace,
Near to the heart of God.

Refrain: O Jesus, blest redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us who wait before Thee,
Near to the heart of God.

WE ARE SPECIOUS! – Ephesians 2:10 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

WE ARE SPECIOUS!

Ephesians 2:10​ –  Devotional

Ephesians 2:10

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

There is no such word as specious but it rings with sweet memory in my mind. It goes way back when our grandson, Jeremiah was just learning to talk. My wife, Joyce, had been telling Jeremiah that he was special and that he was also precious. Jeremiah grinned and said; “I am specious!”

I think it is accurate (if not grammatically correct) to say that in God’s sight we are indeed; SPECIOUS! Worldly people may mock us and be-little us because of our walk with the Lord, but we need to remind ourselves of the heroes of the faith who have endured mockery, abuse, torture, and even death for the sake of Christ. They were specious!

God has never promised His followers an easy or pleasant life. In fact He has told us to expect to be reviled, persecuted, and rejected. In response to this treatment we are to rejoice and be exceedingly happy. Why? Because we are God’s specious people!

Go out into the world and let your light so shine, that people will be lifted from their pit of despair into the reality that God offers anyone who will to come to Him and be made specious by His saving grace!

Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!

HE IS WITH US! – Isaiah 41:10 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional

HE IS WITH US!

Isaiah 41:10​ –  Devotional

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Yesterday I received an email from a friend I met over 50 years ago. We met in St. Anthony, Newfoundland, where I served in the US Air Force and he served in the local hospital. Roy met a nurse named Jean and they immediately felt that God was drawing them together. Several years after I returned to the States they were married and had a family.

In his message, Roy informed me that Jean had slipped the bonds of this old world and gone to be with the Lord. In the days preceding her death Jean said she had seen the face of Jesus twice. Wow! There need not be any fear of death! What comfort to know that the suffering of this world is nothing knowing that our Savior is waiting for us on the other side.

I have imagined the meeting that took place in Paradise when Jean and my Joyce met for the first time, yet knew each other as if they were sisters. Actually they were sisters in the Lord. We have a wonderful family that we will spend eternity with and some we will meet for the first time when we leave this world. Jesus is with us and will be there to welcome us home! We need never fear death.
