A LIFE OF FAITH
“Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word
of God.” -Luke 4:4.
The words of God are spirit and life and so become food for the inner man.
“The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.: -John 6:63. “Thy word hath quickened me.” –Psalm 11:9:50.“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy
word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart.” – Jeremiah 15:15.
The Word of God is always sweet to the taste of faith. While we feed on the Word of God faith itself
is fed, for “faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” – Romans 10:17.— James Smith
It Matters Not
It matters not if I’ve been hurt;
It matters not at all
That sometimes from my weary eyes
The scalding teardrops fall.
What matters most is if I’ve erred
and not confessed the sin
And through my lack some needy soul.
las failed to follow Him.
It matters not if cherished friends
on whom I lean in vain
Have wounded me by word and deed
and left me with my pain.
What matters is – can I forgive
Again and yet again?
It’s not “Have they been true?” but,
Lord Have I been true to them.
“Twill matter not, when evening comes,
How rough the road I’ve trod,
If only I have walked with Him
And led some soul to God!
How sad it is that so many Christians are more concerned about their earthly, physical lives than about
their heavenly, spiritual heritage. So many have sold their heavenly birthright for an earthly mess of
pottage. We must, by faith, put our spiritual heritage first in our lives.
