What I Read Online – 09/26/2013 (p.m.)

27 Sep
    • I have always been content to be a catalyst. I love to precipitate events without appearing prominently on the front cover. It fills me with joy to inspire others to do what I think God wants them to do in the extension of his kingdom while I remain cheering in the crowd.
    • I want to see the ACU grow into the best university on the continent—to the glory of God. I want to see the ACU disciple young minds, hearts, and hands to fulfil the cultural mandate in a way that no other university in Africa has done. I want to see this happen.
    • I. First of all — what is this family?

       

      II. Secondly — what is its present position?

       

      III. Thirdly — what are its future prospects?

    • What is that family which the Bible calls “the whole   family in Heaven and earth”? Of whom does it consist?
    • True Christians are called a “family” — because they   have all one Father.
    • True Christians are called “a family” — because they   all rejoice in one name.
    • True Christians, above all, are called “a family” —   because there is so strong a family likeness among them.
    • What is the present position of “the whole   family in Heaven and earth”?
    • Some of God’s family are safe in Heaven
    • Some of God’s family are still upon earth
    • Both parts of the family love the same Savior,   and delight in the same perfect will of God
    • Both parts of the family are saints
    • Both parts of the family are alike God’s children
    • Both parts of the family are alike God’s soldiers
    • Last, but not least — both parts of the family are   alike safe and secure
    • What are the future prospects of “the whole   family” in Heaven and earth?
    • The members of God’s family shall all be brought   safely home one day!
    • The members of God’s family shall all have glorious   bodies one day!
    • The members of God’s family shall all be gathered   into one company one day!
    • The members of God’s family shall all be united in   mind and judgement one day.
    • The members of God’s family shall all be perfected   in holiness one day!
    • Last, but not least — the members of God’s family   shall all be eternally provided for one day!
    • Do you yet belong to the   family of God?
    • Reader, if you really belong to the whole family in   Heaven and earth, count up your privileges, and learn to be more thankful!
    • In the meantime, let us strive to live worthy of   the family to which we belong. Let us labor to do nothing that may cause our   Father’s house to be spoken against. Let us endeavor to make our Master’s   name beautiful by our temper, conduct and conversation. Let us love as   brethren, and abhor all quarrels. Let us behave as if the honor of the   family depended on our behavior.

       

      So living, by the grace of God, we shall make our calling   and election sure, both to ourselves and others. So living, we may hope to   have an abundant entrance, and to enter harbor in full sail, whenever we   change earth for Heaven. So living, we shall recommend our Father’s family   to others, and perhaps, by God’s blessing incline them to say, “We will go   with you!”
