When I Am Afraid


            Christians are sometimes afraid. David confessed, “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee” (Ps. 56:3). He said this when he became trapped by the Philistines in Gath.

Three Reasons to Be Thankful

Colossians 1:3-5


            Is your life lacking thankfulness? Here we find God’s great remedy. Much of our joy in Christ depends upon being thankful for what he has done for us. We must not neglect his great salvation (Heb. 2:3), but understand it more clearly, often think about it, and hold fast to it. “Do not forget” is the Christian’s great strategy for thankfulness in the midst of our warfare and pilgrimage.
