The Happiest of All People

Holiday Thought

“Happy are you, O Israel: who is like unto you, O people saved by the Lord” (Deuteronomy 33:29).

They are happy right now because they are a saved people: not saved from the troubles of this life, but saved from the wrath to come when every person will have to give an account of himself/herself to God. On the positive side, they are saved to an eternity of happiness with Christ, who loved them and gave Himself for them. They are indeed the happiest of people.

Giving God His Place in Preaching

Holiday Thought

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” (2 Corinthians 4:7)

Those called to preach have a treasure to bring to their people, but they must realise that they themselves are vessels of clay. This is very important because true preaching must glorify God, and not the preacher. God alone can bestow the power.
