How Much Of Heaven Can We Take?

Verse For Today: “No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him” (Revelation 22:3 NIV).
The following story comes from the late atheist, Bertrand Russell. F.W.H. Myers asked a man at a dinner table what he thought would happen to him when he died. The man tried to ignore the question, but on being pressed, replied: “Oh well, I suppose I shall inherit eternal bliss, but I wish you wouldn’t talk about such unpleasant subjects.”


Thinking Biblically About Worship

Today’s Verse: “Abraham said to his young men, ‘Stay here with the donkey, and I and the lad will go over there; and we will worship and return to you'” (Gen 22:5 NASU).

It was a sleepless night. Abraham knew what he had to do. How could God keep His promise to bless him through Isaac, and yet demand that he take the boy’s life in sacrifice? His faith, however, had eyes to see that God would raise the boy from the dead (Isa. 11:19).


Failure To Thrive

“Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good” (1 Peter 2:1 NIV) .

There are infants and also adults who suffer from a lack of appetite and unless there is intervention, they may starve to death. Every attempt is made to stimulate the appetite so that the condition may be reversed before irreparable harm occurs.
