Praising the Immutable God

Complete and perfect in himself from eternity to eternity, God has no potential that is not already fully realized. God cannot be more infinite, loving or holy tomorrow than today. If God alone is necessary and independent of all external conditions, fully realized in all of his perfection, then there is literally nothing for God to become. For us, change might be for better or worse, but for a perfect God, change can only yield imperfection. – Michael Horton

The Goal of Christian Parenting

Filed under: Uncategorized — cubsfan1980 @ 10:29 pm

“The goal for the Christian parent is to be faithful to God’s Word by His grace and for His glory. You see, in Christ we have the great hope that we can be faithful whether our children are faithful or not…

If we are to be faithful parents we will be steadfast, trustworthy, and true concerning our commitment to God and His Word. We will also be like God, reliable in our parental care and in our commitment to our children’s good.” Stuart Scott and Martha Peace in “The Faithful Parent”

Cast All Your Cares Upon God Because He Cares For You

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you.” (1 Pet. 5:7) what a perfect rest do we get when on coming to the Lord Jesus we take His yoke upon us, the yoke which He Himself ever wore, and which He now lovingly imposes upon all His people. O, it is an easy yoke and a light burden. Love joyfully accepts what infinite love imposes. We then are satisfied in knowing that every interest of ours is unspeakably precious to Him: that every hair is counted: every tear is put into His bottle, and that every sigh is noted. Nothing can harm those whom He keeps as the apple of His eye. Our one and only danger is that we begin to plan for ourselves and thus virtually take ourselves out of His hands. He will bring us at whatever cost of suffering to us, to commit ourselves absolutely to His loving and perfectly trusted hands.

I rise before dawn and cry for help;
I hope in your words.
(Psalm 119:147 ESV)

“He who is diligent in prayer will never be destitute of hope. Observe that as the early bird gets the worm, so the early prayer is soon refreshed with hope.” Charles Spurgeon
