Memorial Day is always on a Monday the last one of May each year.

It is the day we honor those who made the greatest sacrifice of dying for our country so we could remain a free people and live under the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

This focuses on the United States first battle in Vietnam.

The Danger of Denial


You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.—John 8:32

It may be difficult for you to admit that perhaps your heart and your head are not spiritually coordinated. Many Christians are content to live above the waterline and insist that it is quite unnecessary to wrestle and struggle with the things that go on deep inside us. Their motto is: just trust, persevere, and obey. This is fine as far as it goes, but in my opinion it does not go far enough.

The effect of this teaching is to blunt the painful reality of what the Bible says about the condition of the human heart: “The heart is more deceitful than anything else, and incurable—who can understand it? I, Yahweh, examine the mind” (Jr 17:9-10). It is possible for even mature Christians to be self-deceived, to not really know their own hearts. This is…

Down From the Mountain


Matthew 17:14-21

FROM the mountaintop of transfiguration the Lord leads the disciples down the road to practical service. He finds the other disciples powerless to cast out a demon from a possessed youth. The desperate father pleads, “If thou canst do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” Jesus answers, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” It reminds us of His word to the blind men, “According to your faith be it unto you” (Matt. 9:29).

How poorly we have learned this lesson! Our faith is the measure of our blessing. Today faith is being extolled for its own sake as though it mattered not what we believe, just so we believe something with all our might. So we are told that prayer is valuable for its own reflex action upon the one who prays. But the value of faith depends…

Man Must Repent


“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.” (Romans 3:10-11)

From the moment Adam and Eve disobeyed their Creator in the Garden, humanity has attempted to deflect conscious acceptance of guilt. Adam blamed God because “the woman” was given to him by the Creator. Eve blamed the serpent—and you and I have continued that reaction ever since.

That is precisely why repentance is a requirement for salvation. When Adam rebelled, the relationship between man and God was destroyed: “By the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation” and “by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners” (Romans 5:18-19). All men have “no hope, and [are] without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12).

The death that entered the world because of Adam (Romans 5:12) not only introduced physical death into the entire creation…

Sunday Reflection: Beauty in Weakness


To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the Scripture referenced throughout.

As early as the 1600s, Japanese embroiderers reinforced garments with special stitching known assashiko—a word meaning “little stabs.” The technique uses repeated lines or geometric shapes in white cotton thread on traditional indigo blue cloth. The process was used to cover holes or strengthen cloth that had seen better days, and it left the fabric thicker and stronger than before.

Sashiko is an apt metaphor for the believer’s life. When the Bible says, “We are the clay, and [God] our potter” (Isa. 64:8), it emphasizes His role in shaping our faith and character. Though we may continue to struggle with various frailties and challenges, Jesus—through the Holy Spirit—is in the process of remaking us in His image (2 Corinthians 3:17-18) and helping us be His hands and feet in the world…

Worth It, or Worthy?


Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain. Revelation 5:12

Helen Roseveare, an English missionary physician in the African Congo, was taken prisoner by rebels during the Simba Rebellion in 1964. Beaten and abused by her captors, she suffered terribly. In the days that followed, she found herself asking, “Is it worth it?”

As she began to ponder the cost of following Jesus, she sensed God speaking to her about it. Years later she explained to an interviewer, “When the awful moments came during the rebellion and the price seemed too high to pay, the Lord seemed to say to me, ‘Change the question. It’s not, ‘Is it worth it?’ It’s ‘Am I worthy?’ ” She concluded that in spite of the pain she had endured, “Always the answer is ‘Yes, He is worthy.’ ”

Through God’s grace at work within her during her harrowing ordeal, Helen Roseveare decided that the…
