“If Christians would just spend half the time they spend each week on Face Book with their face in The Book then our churches would be filled with more worship on Sunday”

Psalm 148:13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

Isn’t it a deep peace within the soul to know that our Lord is The Lord?  Isn’t it an overwhelming thought to know that the same Spirit that stirs within our spirit is the Great Holy Spirit?  Isn’t it a breath taking truth to know that this same Jesus, that we know personally, is the same Jesus that suffered and died on the cross for our sins?  What a God!  What a Lord!  What a Saviour!  Last week as I studied, I came across an old preacher’s writings on this very subject.  Even though there is not enough paper or ink to fully describe our Lord, these words are a good beginning.  I felt that his words would also be a blessing to you all so I have included them in today’s devotion.  In order to get the full blessing of it you may have to read it slowly or maybe read it several times.  What a wonderful, powerful, glorious Lord we have!  “No voice can compass, no pen can include the full statement of Jesus' character. The world over, architects striving to build cathedrals worthy of Him, fall short of their high objectives. A sense of inadequacy falls oppressively upon musicians who try to create music sweet enough for His hymns of praise. Sculptors, searching all quarries, nowhere find marble white enough for His forehead. Orators, whose sentences are flights of golden arrows, express only a meager measure of the honor due Him. Writers, words dropping from their pens like golden pollen from the stems of shaken lilies, feel the inadequacy of all words to set Him forth in His beauty. Devout poets, reaching from pole to pole with wings of their poetic genius, struggle for some metaphor with which to express Him. Profound scholars, rushing with archangelic splendor through mysterious realms of thought, light their brightest torches at His altar fires. Jesus is the most Wonderful of the wonderful. Jesus is the most Precious of the precious. Jesus is the most Lovely of the lovely. Jesus never struck a jarring note. He never made a misstep. On Him circumstances left no fingerprints. Popularity never caused Him to hasten a footstep. Hostility never caused Him to falter. Temptations never loosened a moral fiber. As all the rivers are gathered into the ocean, so Jesus is the Ocean in which all moral excellencies and spiritual pleasures meet. Even His enemies said that they could find no fault in Him. His worst foe proclaimed Him innocent. He challenged them with the question: "Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not believe me?" (John 8:46). God found no blemish in Him: "And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" (Matthew 3:17). Jesus Himself said: "...I do always those things that please him" (John 8:29). Jesus is a sea of sweetness without one drop of gall. Things that shine as single stars with a particular glory all meet in Jesus as a glorious constellation. "For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell"(Colossians 1:19). All other loveliness is drivative and secondary, but the loveliness of Jesus is original and primary. His is the beauty of holiness. Holiness is glory internal. Glory is holiness shining forth outwardly. He is the Lord of Glory! And, if you see no beauty in Him that you should desire Him, it is because the god of this world hath blinded your mind and you are a victim of dawdling ditties, missing life's central melody. The eyes of your understanding have not been enlightened.”  Yes my dear friend that is our God!  What an eternal blessing to know that one day the Lord opened up our blinded eyes to the true truth about His saving, sovereign, sealing grace!  Amen.

Isaiah 26:13 O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.

Oh how true this verse is.  Every one of us has had a time in our life where we have let down our spiritual guard and allowed worldly things to creep in and take over our lives.  The Lord has warned us from the beginning of creation of this danger.  Is the matter of fact, one of the Ten Commandments speaks of this very subject.  Being housed in this flesh, it is easy to allow fleshly things to take over our thoughts and time.  But the Lord knows how to keep the shine knocked off these worldly possessions doesn’t He?  Notice our verse speaks of these things having dominion over us.  Dominion means to control or to rule over something.  It means to dominate.  It is easy for us to allow temporary things of this world to dominate us.  This could mean anything from a job to something physical such as a car, house or even a habit, hobby, or maybe even another person.  I am familiar with people that have allowed their jobs to control their life completely.  I do realize that our job does require us to be faithful to it, but when we allow it to take over our lives to the point that we are neglecting our commitment to the Lord then our job has become a god.  Many times people say; “But I can’t help it, my boss requires me to work on days and times that interfere with my commitment to the Lord”.   But have we prayed and ask the Lord to control the boss??  Have we asked the Lord to take over our job so that it doesn’t take over us?  The last part of our verse speaks a great truth.  by thee only will we make mention of thy name.”  If we give glory to the Lord the way we should it is when He is King of our life.  If another god is between us and God then we will rarely give Him the worship He deserves.  This is because the false god requires the majority of our time.  Many times we will spend two hours in church on Sunday to satisfy our feeling of obligation when our heart is really yearning to be with our other god.  The Lord must be King of our life.  So the big question for us this morning is this; how can we be assured that the Lord is King of our life and not some other worldly god?  It’s simple.  We MAKE the Lord King of our life.  It is a choice what is god or if HE is GOD of our life.  Oh dear friend, let’s be very careful what we allow to captivate us.  Yes, we do have to live life here in this world, but we must be careful that this world does not get the glory God deserves.  Amen.

Revelation 1:18  I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.  

We have hope this morning because our God lives.  He lives, He lives; you ask me how I know He lives…it’s because He lives within my heart.  Our Lord Jesus lives forever more.  Notice He says in our verse that He is He that “liveth”.  That word liveth means a continual living without end.  In this world of temporary when something dies then it is dead.  At least that is what we see from here.  We do know that the Word of God promises us that we will live again in eternity, but as far as these earthly eyes can see, dead is dead.  We do have great promised hope through the Spirit of God and the scriptures of God that we will live again.  But that is spiritual.  You see, the folk that are lost without Christ as their Saviour cannot understand life after death.  To them dead is dead.  It makes no sense to them how that a person could be dead and then live again.  But here in our verse Jesus reminds this world how that He did die on the cross, but he also resurrected the grave on the third day.  He said; “I WAS dead”.  And He gives the great promise; “I am alive for evermore”.  And He puts His seal on His promise; “Amen”.  So if Jesus defeated the grave then He absolutely has defeated death itself.  He has the key to death.  No one dies unless Jesus sends for their soul.  Dead is NOT dead until Jesus says; “dead”.  But may I say, dead IS dead when Jesus says; “dead”.  It’s over here when death is commanded to pick us up.  We will not get to a meeting in the sky that gives us an opportunity to debate whether or not we should die today or not.  Death of this earthly body is permanent.  To the child of God this is GOOD NEWS!  This is good news because we have been saved by grace.  And to those who have been saved by grace Jesus has the keys to their eternal destination.  He has the keys to Hell for those who are lost, but praise the Lord He also has the keys to Glory for the saved.  We should see from the promise of this verse that Jesus is Lord.  He is King.  He is in total charge.  He has the keys of death and Hell.  Only He can give life and take life.  He is life and He has defeated death.  Amen.

James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

The Word of God is a book that contains the sayings of the Lord that has been compiled between two covers.  It is the actual spoken word of the Creator Himself.  He moved upon God called men of old and breathed His word in them and on them.  Therefore we have the true inerrant Word of God.  So every word and verse is a powerful word from God, being that He said it, but there are some verses that sink a little deeper than others.  There are some verses which just reach out and grab us.  There are some that reach down into the realities of our very soul.  This verse today is one of those.  This familiar verse here in the book of James is a word spoken of the Lord that is a reality that makes us check up on our position in eternity.  It makes us check up on our position in the Lord.  It is a reminder of how short life really is.  The first part of the verse brings up the reality of just how much control we have over our tomorrow.  We can be used of the Lord to plan for some of our tomorrows but we ourselves don’t know what that tomorrow will really unfold until we are standing in it.  It’s kind of like a presentation ceremony of a famous painting.  It is placed before many anticipating viewers with a cloth covering it.  When it comes time to present it the cloth is jerked off and the crowd gives there approval by their sighs.  Our daily life is that way.  We don’t know what today holds, but we have no fear because we know the one who made today and who holds today!  As we move on in our verse we are reminded just how little we know about the span of our life here on this earth.  We know nothing.  As the verse states; It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.  Life is in His hands.  He gives all breath.  He gives every heart beat.  He is sovereignly guiding our life.  When He says “ok, that’s it”, then and I mean then we will depart into eternity.  Friend, we could be living in the very last few moments of our life here on earth right now.  We must serve the Lord in every moment the way that we want to leave this life. We must be committed as we should be when we leave here and stand face to face with HIM.  Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.  Amen.
