A saint abroad, and a devil at home!

Charles Spurgeonby Charles Spurgeon

The way in which a man lives in his home is vital. It will not do to be a saint abroad, and a devil at home! There are some of that kind. They are wonderfully sweet at church, but they are dreadfully sour to their wives and children. This will never do! Every genuine believer should say and mean it: “I will be careful to lead a blameless life . . . I will walk in my house with blameless heart.” Psalm 101:2

It is in the home that we get the truest proof of godliness.

What sort of a man is he?” said one to George Whitefield, and Whitefield answered, “I cannot say, for I have never lived with him.”

The best way to test what a man really is, is to live with him.

“I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:1-2

The Messiah Of The Hidden Scrolls

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Most Jewish people don’t believe in Yeshua, Jesus because they’re taught it’s not Jewish to believe in a Messiah who dies for sins. But in recent years, a text in one of the Dead Sea scrolls, kept hidden from the public, came to light. It’s called text “4Q285”. It says of the Messiah, “They will kill the prince of the people.” In other words, it’s Jewish to believe in a Messiah who was killed. The Dead Sea scroll continues, “They will kill the prince of the people with hallal”. Hallal is the same word found in Isaiah 53 where it is written, “He was pierced through for our transgressions.” The word pierced through is hallal. The scroll, hidden in the Judean desert for 2000 years and then from the public for another 40 years, declared that Messiah would be killed in the same manner as the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53 – through piercings. Even the Dead Sea Scrolls bear witness to this fact: the Messiah actually did give His life for you, and there is only one way to respond to this fact – live your life for His glory.

Today’s Mission – Live this day in a manner worthy of Him who suffered for your sins and gave His life for your salvation.
