Who hasn’t heard or read a fantasy story about some handsome
prince who falls in love with a poor beautiful maiden.  Of course
they marry and the poor but beautiful maiden lives happily ever
after with the future king.

Though fairy tales are fantasy we, as common folks, long for the
things which belonging to royalty would bring!  And how our
hearts long for that happy ever after!

But dear Christian, forget about fantasy and look upon what is
your reality

As a Christian, you are loved with “with an everlasting love” and
you were loved so much that Christ was not willing that you
should take the penalty of your own sins and so He died in
your place on Calvary.

You, who were nothing, have forever the protection, care, and
attention of the One who is King of kings and who is omnipotent,
omniscient, and by whom “all things were made.”

Seemingly bad things will come your way which may affect your
health, finances, and relationships. And at times you may be very
frightened by the harshness and brutality of this world.

But, dear Christian, earth is not your home - it is a wilderness.
But it is in this wilderness that you will have an opportunity
to know and learn of Christ in a way than you’ll never
have in Heaven.

So, dear Christian, lean on His word for guidance and
strength.  Trust in Him for the provisions of life. Talk to
Him often during the day - giving to Him the cares of
your way. And look for Him.....yes, even longing for
Him......remembering always that Christ’s love towards
you is such He won’t be satisfied for you to be forever
here in this wilderness called “earth.”

And though there seems to be endless years of delay, there will
come a day in which you will be starting your “forever” with the
One whose love is best!

That, dear Christian, is your reality and never ending joy!

You came to me, God,

You came to me, God, - M. Robbins

You came to me, God     
in my darkness,
but not in bodily form;
then upon my soul,
You wrote a verse;
now glory fills my soul!
You came to me, God,
in my trials,
yet, not in bodily form;
then upon my soul,
You wrote Your Word;
now glory fills my soul!

You came to me, God,
in my sorrow,
though not in bodily form;
then upon my soul,
You wrote a verse;
now glory fills my soul!

You came to me, God,
by Your verses;
Alleluia! praise Your name!
And upon my soul
You’ve written Your love;
now glory fills my soul!

     We know that the Bible states in 2 Tim 3:16, “All
scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable
for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in
     But did you know that God often brings into a Christian’s
life a Bible verse that ultimately has such a special significance
between God and the Christian that it might later in time be
called a “love” verse?
     Yes, through ways which are only known to God, the Lord
Almighty can take a single Bible verse and use that verse to
mightily reveal Himself to a Christian.   
     Also through means which only God can bring about, the
Great I AM can take just one verse from His Word and make
that single verse a vital part of a Christian’s life and memory!    
     However that type of verse often comes to the Christian’s
soul during times of  great anguish, loss, trials or when the
Christian seems to be almost fainting in prayer.  Consequently
because it frequently comes at such a great cost to the believer,
the verse seems to have been “written” upon the soul.
     Yet, a “written” verse upon the soul isn’t natural.  So how
can a verse that has been “written” upon a soul bear any
resemblance of being loveable?  Surely it can’t be termed a
“love” verse!
     Ah, dear Christian, His ways are generally not the same as ours.
     His way is that from our great anguish God’s glory shines from
a Bible verse.
     His way is that from our loss comes a special “union” with God
via a verse.
     His way is that from our trials comes a type of deep,
unforgettable communication of God unto the Christian,
His child, through a Scripture verse.
     In fact so special does the verse become to the
Christian, it is if God, Himself, by way of a verse, had
taken on sinews and flesh.
     And because it is all of God, there is a special holy
glory in the “writing.”
     Consequently for the rest of the Christian’s earthly
pilgrimage, contact with such a verse will trigger an
immediate memory of how and when God revealed
Himself through a verse!
     That is why such a verse can be called a “love” verse. 
     Oh! the “writing!”
     Oh! the glory!
     May His name be praised today!

A holy God? It cannot be

A holy God?  It cannot be - M. Robbins

A holy God?  It cannot be
That He could truly look on me!
I’ve cast His laws behind my back!
Pure righteousness is what I lack!

Unto the holy King of Kings
A perfect life I cannot bring;
My righteousness is all unclean;
Oh! who shall save me from death’s sting?

The Holy Word of God does say
That all my sins were by Christ paid;
And if by faith I would believe,
God’s righteousness would come to me.

The righteousness of God I need;
There is none other I can plead;
When I by faith on Christ believe
God’s righteousness will come to me.
                          M. Robbins

     Paul, a “free born” Roman citizen of Jewish heritage, had
as a baby breathed his first breath in the home of one who
was considered a Roman national and not as one from a
conquered people. 
     This privileged birth gave Paul the opportunity to obtain
proper schooling which helped shape his great intellect and
later guided him into becoming “zealous toward God” (Acts 22:3),
but this zealousness was “not according to knowledge” (Rom 10:2).
     Of course, all this left no impression upon God for in God’s sight
all.....even Paul.....had sinned and had “come short of the glory of
God” (Rom 3:23).
     What Paul needed was the salvation which comes only “through
faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim 3:15) which happened shortly
after Paul’s miraculous encounter with Christ on the road to Damascus. 
     In fact a few short days after that encounter, Paul, who had
formerly been named “Saul,” found his heart, his mind, and
his spirit had been forever changed.  He was now a
“Christian” who was “an apostle of Christ” “a servant of
God,” and “a new creature in Christ.”
     Years later to the Christians in Rome, Paul wrote a
phrase which would have never been written by an
unsaved Roman citizen:  “but I am carnal, sold under
sin” (Rom 7:14).  Of course what Paul wrote was in
reference to the Mosaic law which was “spiritual” and
had nothing to do about nationality and citizenship. 
     Still, Paul understood the significance of a totally
“spiritual” Mosaic law:  an individual could never
obtain righteousness by obeying the law.  Rather
righteousness is given because it is the righteousness
of God “which is by faith of Jesus Christ” and it is
“unto all and upon all them that believe” ((Rom 3:22).
     And it this message of “righteousness which is
of faith” (Rom 9:30) that Paul tirelessly wrote and
preached about while traveling thousands of miles
and suffering many things.
     Eventually while visiting Jerusalem, Paul’s zeal
for Christ collided with the traditional Mosaic law
and because of his Roman citizenship, Paul
saw Rome’s grandeur.....but with great cost. 
After two different Roman imprisonments,
Paul was given the sentence of death.
     Thus the earthly eyes of Paul permanently
closed in death but only for a great “gain” (Phil 1:21). 
Heavenly eyes replaced earthly eyes and Paul
saw at last Him “Who hath delivered us from the
power of darkness, and hath translated us into the
kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have
redemption through his blood, even the
forgiveness of sins” (Col 1:13-14).
