Matthew 24:46 "Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing."

These are the words of Jesus following his discourse on His second coming.

Verse 42 says we should be "watching," because we know not what hour he will come. Verse 44 says "be ye also ready." Verse 45 encourages us to be "faithful and wise". Watching, ready, faithful, and wise - These are his admonitions to us.

Have we allowed ourselves to be careless? Are we truly watching for Him? Can you say you are ready for His coming? Have you been faithful to Him? Are you wise enough to see the signs of His coming? Think on these things.

Luke 21:33 "Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away."

In this verse we are reminded that God's word will still be standing when everything else has fallen. That is why we are encouraged to "hide his word in our hearts."

It is sad in our day that so many have very little of God's word committed to memory. That is why memory work is so essential to children's ministry.

What God said in His word is so important. What we feel or think will fall before His almighty word.

The cheapening of His word has become a reality in our life time. The many versions have robbed us of the Bible and turned it into "easy reading." Let us hold fast to that which is good.

Proverbs 31:10 "Who can find a virtuous woman?"

It is apparent from this proverb that, while there were many women, only a select few obtain "virtuous" status. If this was true in Bible times, what must the ratio be now?

While the Proverb 31 Mother has excelled in every area, the key to her excellence is in verse 30..."but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised."

So few children today have a God fearing mother. It seems many today are making sure their children have everything in life except being trained to Love and fear God.

I encourage all our Mothers to be a spiritual leader in their homes. The children's souls are at stake.

I Timothy 4:1 "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils."

In this verse we are given a glimpse into the "latter times." The spirit speaks with certainty, without a doubt, that some shall depart from the faith.

We are now watching second and third generation holiness people walk away from tried and true truths; their grandmothers and mothers embraced with joy. The sad fact is, that when you depart from truth, you are then subject to be deceived and seduced by the spirits of this world.

Many now question the possibility of entire sanctification and are embracing a "sinning religion." Be on guard, lest you be a part of the "falling away" and depart from the faith.

The Savior himself tells us to let our light shine. With this statement, we understand that there is darkness. In this darkness, there are pin points of light, and we are that light. When we show forth the wonderful works of salvation, and the hope and reality of Holiness, we are giving this world a reason to understand and glorify God.

We have the ability to be light because of the work he has done in our hearts. This world indeed is a dark place, with the works of darkness being praised and uplifted on every hand. The dark curtains of wickedness are being drawn on every hand. But we, the people of God, are called to rise to the occasion. We are called to be beacons of light to those who wander lost in this world where sin abounds.

Our lives are to show forth the greatness and power of his mighty salvation. We have a chance to save some lost soul by letting our light shine. Even a feeble light may make a difference to a soul that has lost their way. Also, a small light can show the way. Let you light shine!

Prov. 23:23 "Buy the truth, and sell it not..."

In this Proverb, we find a remarkable statement: A person who constantly buys, but never sells. If a person went shopping constantly, from one marketplace to the next and never sold anything, he would finally become what is known as a hoarder. Stacks and stacks of merchandise, with only paths to get through. Many of this type abound today.

But in this verse, the command is to buy truth. We are to be gatherers of truth. Truth is to be our riches, as well as wisdom, instruction, and understanding. These are the things we will gather up in our lifetime.

No wonder then, that when a saint of God reaches old age, they have acquired a house filled with these wonderful things. Many times when visiting older people, we see all the things they have acquired in their lifetime. How interesting. Their home is an archive of antiques. Even so, in old age the saints have truth, wisdom, understanding and instruction galore. We bask in their knowledge of truth, and we come away better for having known and fellowshipped with them.
