"God ... made us to sit with Him in heavenly places, in Christ Jesus." .....Ephesians 2:6

What does it really mean to sit? When we walk or stand, we bear on our legs all the heaviness and weight of our body, whereas when we sit down our entire weight rests upon the chair which we sit on. We grow weary when we walk or stand, but we feel rested and refreshed when we have sat down for a while. In walking or standing, we expend a great deal...

"So he caused the ark of the Lord to compass the city." ......Joshua 6:11

Mention here of the ark alone makes it appear as though the writer were ignoring the whole army of people who marched in faith round those walls of Jericho.

"God, whose I am, whom also I serve." ....Acts 27:23

It is a great thing when I discover I am no longer my own but Christ's and that I have the love of God in my heart, causing me to be sensitive unto others. If the money in my pocket belongs to me, I have full authority over it. But if it belongs to another who has committed it to me in trust, then I cannot buy what I please with it, and I dare not ...
