‘Samson Revisited’ – The principle of separation

(An excerpt from Samson Revisited by Michael Storey, page 35) Both Samson and the Lord Jesus had been separated for the Lord’s work and were blessed by Him. So too were Israel as God’s chosen people (Exodus 19:5,6; Deuteronomy 7:6-8). Under the law every man child born was to be holy to the Lord. But… Read More ‘Samson Revisited’ – The principle of separation

Today’s thought “In vain do they worship” (August 12)

Although atheism is rife in many countries, but worshipping God in a way He does not care for is also a problem. We must not be judgmental, which is God’s prerogative, but we cannot help seeing some of the differences between first century Christianity and that which exists today.

Today’s Thought (August 07): God’s love for the unworthy

God’s love in Christ, in its full measure, is offered not to those merely who are believing enough, penitent enough, reformed enough; it is offered to all those who will cast themselves on God, be it only with faith “as a grain of mustard seed”. And to anticipate a common objection – far from inducing… Read More Today’s Thought (August 07): God’s love for the unworthy

Today’s thought “Overcome evil with good” (August 3)

Today’s thought “Overcome evil with good” (August 3) Chapter 12 of Paul’s letter to the Romans abounds with challenging principles – these are a wonderful guide to our lives.

Today’s Thought (August 02): God’s mercy upon all

God’s judgements are necessary surgical operations. His mercy is over all His works; and this mercy falls first on Israel. A divine transformation is wrought upon the people whose stony-heartedness has become proverbial, and whose whole history is a testimony of waywardness. The few great and godly men that the nation has produced, among whom… Read More Today’s Thought (August 02): God’s mercy upon all

Today’s Thought (August 01): The divine potter

There is no change of purpose with the divine “potter”, but there is a change of mind and disposition towards the “clay lumps”, individual and national, according as they change their mind and disposition towards the “potter”. This is the apostolic argument in the epistle to the Romans (chapter 9), and satisfactorily explains the existence… Read More Today’s Thought (August 01): The divine potter
