Pressing Questions of an Awakened Mind

PAUL fell to the ground overcome by the brightness of the light which outshone the mid-day sun, and as he lay there he cried, “Who art thou, Lord?” After receiving an answer to his first question, he humbly asked another, “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?

Acts 9:5-6

The Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ

Sep 7 THE apostle is explaining the reason for his preaching Christ with so much earnestness: he had received divine light, and he felt bound to spread it. One great motive power of a true ministry is trusteeship. The Lord has put us in trust with the gospel; he has filled us with a treasure with which we are to enrich the world. The text explains in full what it is with...

2 Corinthians 4:6

Heart-Knowledge of God

Dec 6 WITH what blindness has sin smitten the heart of man, for man does not know his own Maker! It is implied in the text that in his heart he is ignorant of Jehovah, though in him he lives, and moves, and has his being.

Jeremiah 24:7

Observe that this is not Paul's prayer as an unconverted man, that he may know Christ, and so be saved; for it follows upon the previous supplication that he might win Christ and be found in him. This is the desire of one...

Philippians 3:10

Even So, Father!

May 26 That is a singular way with which to commence a verse — “At that time Jesus answered.” If you will look at the context you will not perceive that anybody had asked him a question, or that he was indeed in conversation with any human being. Yet it says, “Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father.” Now when a man answers, he answers a person who has been...
