Acts (Program #54) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (20)
In Acts chapter 20, the Apostle Paul is leaving the elders of the Church in Ephesus. And, in his mind, he believed it would be the last time he would ever see these ones with whom he had been so deeply attached in the Lord. His words to them were solemn and at times foreboding. But, embedded in them was a verse of incredible meaning and feeling, a verse in a few words which convey some of the most profound revelation in all of scripture. Today we look at Acts chapter 20 verse 28. Stay with us as we consider this remarkable utterance on today’s life study of the Bible.
Psalms (Program #8) – David’s Concept Concerning God’s Judgment on David’s Enemies Among the Nations and Concerning Man’s Condition Before God
The Psalms beloved by all of God’s people are composed of the expression of the sentiments, feelings, impressions and experiences of godly men. Many of the psalms express primarily the concept of the writer. David, for example, in a number of the psalms was frequently in grave danger being pursued by his enemies those who were desiring even to do away with him. And so we see his crying out to Jehovah for safety and deliverance. Other of the psalms exult and uplift the law of God connecting God’s blessing with our ability to keep the law. There are however, many psalms that express a much higher thought, even the divine thought. Psalms which present the very Christ of God maybe not in direct reference but in unmistakable clarity. These are psalms which convey God’s deepest feeling and His heart’s desire for man that Christ would occupy the center in our lives as He occupies the center of God’s own economy.
