Holy, Holy, Holy: Kneel at Jesus' Feet                                                                 

By   A. W. Tozer

 

My brethren. the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. James 2:1

 

A system of literature has grown up around the notion that Christianity may be proven by the fact that "great men" believe in Christ!

 

A magazine article carries the caption that "Senator So-and-So Believes in Christ." The implication is that if the senator believes in Christ, then Christ must be all right.

 

When did Jesus Christ have to ride in on the coattail of a senator, or a governor, or some other well known man?

 

No, no, my brother! Jesus Christ stands alone, unique and supreme, self-validating, and the Holy Ghost declares Him to be God's eternal Son. Let all the presidents and all the kings and queens, the senators, and the lords and ladies of the world, along with the great athletes and great actors – let them kneel at His feet and cry, "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty!"

 

Only the Holy Ghost can do this, my brethren. For that reason, I don't bow down to great men. I bow down to the Great Man, and if you have learned to worship the Son of Man, you will not worship other men.

 

The Holy Spirit is God's imperative of life. If Christ is to be the Christ of God rather than the Christ of intellect, then we must enter in beyond the veil, until the illumination of the Holy Spirit fills our hearts and we are learning at the feet of Jesus – not at the feet of men!”

Human Beings: Great But Lost                                                                 

By   John White

 

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.    GENESIS 1:27

 

What does it mean to be "made in the image of God"? To some it means that we possess certain attributes of God such as emotion, volition, intelligence and a sense of morality and ethics. Certainly the Scriptures portray us as having such qualities, in­cluding the ability to choose and a moral sense. According to the Scrip­tures we can make some real decisions (even though we may not be entirely free). In addition, we have had throughout our history a sense of "oughtness," a sense of right and wrong.

 

Others view the meaning of the phrase "in the image of God" differ­ently. While acknowledging that the Bible as a whole attributes such qualities humanity, they suggest that the phrase has more to do with our function on earth. Like are to rule. "Let them have domin­ion over the created order," God is heard to say in the beginning of the book of Genesis.

 

But from this lofty position of supremacy the man and woman sinned and fell. In that were both morally and mortally wounded. Sin warped their personality. But it did more. It alienated them from God and distorted their relationship with creation. They now had to earn their food by painful toil. Sin also impaired (though did not destroy) their ability to think and to make decisions.

 

More serious still, sin, like a disease, not only made them made it impossible for them, in spite of their best resolutions, to refrain from sinning. And in this sense too we see them as a "down-from­-above" man and woman.

 

We also see in them the shattered image of God. Shattered, but not totally gone. And – this is the great truth of the Christian gospel – by God's grace the image can be restored.”

Men Will Not Praise You for Genuine Spirituality                                            

By   A. W. Tozer

 

“But as we are allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men but God 1 Thessalonians 2:4

 

What we do for God must be done in the power of the Holy Spirit and we know and accept the fact that we may have little praise from men.

 

But what we do accomplish for Him as true spiritual work done with eternity in view will have His praise written across it!

 

Most of us have never heard, or do not remember, the name of the humble sixteen-year-old girl whose sing­ing ministry brought such spiritual results in the Welsh revivals with Evan Roberts.

 

This quiet, humble girl would sing the gospel songs and much has been said about her spiritual gift – the Spirit-given ability to glorify Jesus Christ as Saviour when she sang. Not too much has ever been said about her voice, but the record is clear that she was a gifted soul – that the Holy Spirit seemed to be singing and moving through her yielded expression.

 

Evan Roberts would then rise to preach and there was little left for him to do. He said that he would quote from the Scriptures and add an exhortation and the people were ready to come to Christ. She had melted them with the warmth and the power of the Spirit!

 

Oh, what we would be tempted to do with her minis­try in this day! We would put her on the coast-to-coast network and show off her talent – and spoil her! Thank God that they knew better than to start writing her life story.

 

She was a beautiful example of the humble use of our spiritual gifts for the glory of Jesus Christ – a simple Welsh girl willingly controlled by the Holy Spirit of God!”

Added Blessing Brings Added Responsibility                                        

By: Bob Gass

 

"Much is required from those to whom much is given.”   Luke 12:48

 

As God trusts you with more, He'll let you get away with less! You will only succeed in the things of God when following Him becomes your total focus. Jesus refused to let anything or anyone get in the way of serving God. When Peter's own ideas got in His way, Jesus said to him, "Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to Me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, and not from God's.” (Matthew 16:23). Imagine saying that to one of your friends!

 

Refuse to be involved in anything that weighs you down or stops you doing God's will. "Lay aside every weight" (Hebrews 12:1). Be careful with relationships that lessen your hunger for God or weaken your ability to do His will. Listen: "No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs - he wants to please his commanding officer" (2 Timothy 2:4). One day a man phoned a friend of mine whom he had not spoken to for twenty years. He said, "I have to meet you urgently!" When they met, the man wanted to get him involved in a new business. The plan seemed good and the potential income was great. The trouble was that the time involved would have taken my friend away from the most important thing in his life. When he said "No", my friend never heard from the man again. How interesting! When you build your life around the things of God, wrong relationships will quickly die and right ones will be born. Nothing in your life is more important than finding and staying totally focused on the things of God.”
