Our work will be tested

I. Corinthians 3:10,20 Paul,as a master builder, is here dealing with some fundamental facts concerning the Christian’s life and work “No man laythan that is laid, which is Jesus Christ”(v.11).

Fire, help us

Jude 1:23 Whatis more alarming than an outbreak of fire? What excitement ! What fearfulness! What self sacrificing efforts to save the perishing from the blazing fire (Jh.10:9) “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” Those who come…

I Peter 3:1,7 There is surely something wrong when we sow much in prayer and bring in little reward, Let us note (II.Cor.13:5) “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? “ We must…
