Hunger For God

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 If your desire is for righteousness [particularly if it is a response to the realization of your own sinfulness] then God WILL satisfy that desire. We know this because his word tells us that he has already provided the means for that desire to be fulfilled.
Put On Truth

PUT ON TRUTH

PUT ON TRUTH In a day and age where the vast majority of people in the world consider truth as a personal preference rather than an absolute, it is important for us all to remember from where truth comes. So vital it is to attain truth, and then to retain truth in order for any person to ever proclaim truth. Put On Truth as we are to Put On Christ, for he alone is the way, the truth and the…

Our Example of Humility

Christ: Our Example of Humility [Reading: Philippians 2:1-11] Introduction: There are so many reasons to love this passage. We talk quite frequently in regards to apostasy or a falling away and I look at this passage and compare it to my experience of church in times past and the message I see promoted in modern churches in particular. It is one of:  Self-esteem [which is pride] Self-entitlement [which is covetousness] Self-importance [which is idolatry]   Under this premise there is the…

Look Unto Me

Look unto me “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” Isa 45:22 Introduction: Today’s reading and in fact the whole of chapter 45 of Isaiah is quite remarkable. For one thing it demonstrates God’s sovereign plan for Israel. In verse 1, we see king Cyrus mentioned here in scripture some 200 years or more before the event foretold. “Thus saith the LORD to his anointed,…

That Ye May Know

That Ye May Know Phillip McKenzie 08-04-2018     These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever…

The Lord Is My Shepherd

The Lord is my Shepherd     A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they…

Crucified With Christ

Crucified with Christ Phillip McKenzie   I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)   Our reading today is from the epistle of Paul to the Galatians; it is quite a contentious chapter. It addresses the issues presented by certain “Judaizers” insisting…
No Other Foundation

No Other Foundation

No Other Foundation Phillip McKenzie 10-09-2017    For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.  According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.  For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.  Now if any man build upon this foundation gold,…

Eye Hath Not Seen

Eye Hath Not Seen Phillip McKenzie 16-07-2017   But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)  Overview Our passage today comes from Paul’s first epistle to the Corinthians; this is an interesting book to an interesting people. I say interesting because geographically and spiritually the people of Corinth were exposed to all kinds of…
