"And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him." (Gen.22:2-3)

Br. Samuel Babu, Believers Brethren Assembly, (BBA), Majlis - Bahrain For the last few days, we have been relentlessly praying for Br. Samuel Babu, who suffered Cardiac Problems and was admitted in Salmaniya Medical Complex, Bahrain. It was well pleasing for our Lord to call HIS child to the Eternal Home, where there is no pain, no sorrow, no tears, no sickness and no death. He went to be with the LORD around 10:30 PM Bahrain Time today (Friday 23rd 2015). Let us uphold the grieving family members to the Throne of Grace. May the Lord bestow upon them heavenly Grace, Peace and strength and console them with the word of God.
 
 
 
DEVOTIONAL

THESE MEN HAD BEEN WITH JESUS

Philip Varghese 'Ariel', Secunderabad.

Those who were astonished by the courage of Peter and John when they preached the gospel were not ordinary men, but rulers, elders and teachers of the Law. By contrast, Acts 4:13 (NKJV) says, "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus."

Can the same be said of us who are redeemed by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ? If not, it is good to examine ourselves in the light of these words. Are our lives and actions like those who had been with Jesus? If not, then others might see us as the enemies of God or as those under Satan. Let's not forget that "friendship with the world is hatred toward God" (James 4:4).

Today there is a great temptation to love the world and the things of the world. It is obvious that many Christians have a superficial brotherly love. Have we not become selfish, boasters and self-willed; not displaying unity of heart and mind? Satan takes advantage of such tendencies. The main reason for our failure is that we have forgotten that "…. your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8). If we kept this thought in mind, we would be more alert in our lives and Satan would have less success.

We must remember that the devil wants to create havoc in the lives of born again Christians who desire to serve the Lord. He is on the lookout for our weak areas. Many of God's servants have fallen for Satan's tactics and have ruined their testimony. Their failure should be a warning to us. If we seriously consider this and take care, we will be better able to "stand against the devil's schemes" (Ephesians 6:11), the one who even tried to deceive our Lord (Matthew 4:1-11).

If we live lives that are pleasing to the Lord, others will notice and testify that these men and women were with Jesus. As we see increasing evidence for the soon-coming of our Lord, may we live lives which are pleasing to our LORD.
