Program For A Joyful Life

August 5th, 2018

The following appeared in the “The Christian Word and Work,” Vol. 5, No. 16, March 5, 1912

Program For A Joyful Life

  • I will try to do God’s will every day.
  • I will try to see the good in the world and in my neighbor.
  • I will not worry over matters I cannot help, and over those I can help I do not need to worry.
  • I will keep my mind and heart in touch with the things of the universe.
  • I will learn to enjoy the free gifts of God to men, like nature and the facts of physical powers.
  • I will learn to prize all my human friendships.
  • I will help someone to a happier life every day.
  • I will magnify my place in the kingdom of God.
  • I will enjoy the friendship of Christ as my redeemer and Brother. “Hope thou in God.” “Rejoice in the Lord always.”

Six Essential Rules For Christians

July 24th, 2018
  1. This appeared in the bulletin of the Parkland Church of Christ, August 1, 1943– This congregation moved to Ralph Avenue in 1954 and closed  a year or so ago.
  2. Never neglect daily private prayer, and when you pray, remember that God is present, and that He hears your prayers. Heb. 11:6.
  3. Never neglect daily private Bible Reading. (Most, if not all backsliding begins with the neglect of these first two suggestions.)
  4. Never let a day pass without trying to do something for Jesus. Every night reflect on what Jesus has done for you.
  5. Never fail to seek God’s guidance as to whether it is right or wrong. If you cannot ask God about it, you may be sure it is wrong.
  6. Never take Christianity from Christians, or argue that because such people do so and so, therefore you may. Ask yourself, “How would Christ act in my place?”
  7. Never be satisfied to live the Christian life apart from other Christians. You need their fellowship and they need your help.    (Selected)
