THINGS INVOLVED IN SERVICE Service is serving — sometimes voluntarily, sometime involuntarily. In service one is enslaved to someone or something — sometimes voluntarily, sometimes involuntarily. Slavery is not all bad. For instance, Paul, inspired by the Spirit, said, “Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness” (Romans 6:18). One may be freed from one kind of slavery, but he will inevitably be brought under the control of another kind of slavery. Those who were made…

What unspeakable joy! “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if ye ask anything according to His will, He heareth us” (1 John 5:15). I doubt there could be a better or more blessed assurance than to know that God not…
SEASONS OF LIFE     Life cannot be defined. It is, and that’s all there is to it. Oh, I’m aware that the dictionary gives us a definition of life. But listen to it: “The interval of time between birth and death.” How vague.     Lots of people have said lots of things about life.  Shakespeare said of it, “The web of our life is a mangled yarn.” John Ruskin said, “There is no wealth but life.” And Henry Wadsworth Longfellow…
