But The Word of God Multiplied

Vance Havner 90x115by Vance Havner

“…and he [Herod] was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost. But the word of God grew and multiplied” (Acts 12:23, 24). If you are not for the Word, you are for the worms! Here is a dramatic illustration of the failure of the designs of evil and the success of the purpose of God.

May God Help Us Not To Sorrow For Ourselves

A.B. Simpson 90 x115by A.B. Simpson

Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed—Romans 6:11

Our life from the dead is to be followed up by the habit and attitude which is the logical outcome of all this.

Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ . . . but yield yourselves unto God, not to die over again every day, but as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God (Romans 6:11, 13).

Further, Christ’s resurrection life is given to fit us for the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death (Philippians 3:10).

It is intended to enable us to toil and suffer with rejoicing and victory. We mount up with wings as eagles that we may run, and not be weary; . . . walk, and not faint (Isaiah 40:31).
