DAILY, WEEKEND AND HOLIDAY INTERNET EVANGELIZE TO THE WORLD MINISTRY: Prayer, Thought for Today, Teaching

My prayer today is for you to learn "What is Faith?" I pray that all will learn what faith means to them in a spiritual realm. Be blessed is my prayer for you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. - Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy
WHAT IS FAITH?
We may now fitly approach our second great term, Faith, and ask ourselves, What does it mean? As with Justification, so with Faith, we may best approach the answer by first asking, What does Faith mean in common life and speech? Take such phrases as, to have faith in a policy, faith in a remedy, faith in a political leader, or a military leader, faith in a lawyer, faith in a physician. Here the word Faith is used in a way obviously parallel to that in which, for example,  our Lord uses it when He appeals to the Apostles, in the Gospels, to have faith in Him; as He did in the storm on the Lake. The use is parallel also to its habitual use in th…

Fresh Start Devotionals

Grace Grace is a part of my everyday life. My credit card companies give me a grace period every month to pay my bill. They don’t charge me any interest during that time because they know it takes time for us to write the check and the postal service to deliver it to them. Not only have I come to expect a grace period from credit card companies, if they don’t offer it to me, I wouldn’t even think about using their card. The same is true with rental cars. Rental car companies usually give one hour “grace period” before they charge another 24-hour fee for a late return. They do this, because they know that drivers can’t always control the traffic on the way to return the car, so they extend grace to us. Publishers send “grace issues” after our subscriptions run out to entice us to resubscribe to their magazine, just in case we forgot to send the check. After eating at a restaurant, most of us give the service staff a tip or otherwise known as a gratuity for good service. The concept…

Amazing Grace : 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions

March 19 BE THOU MY VISION Text—Irish hymn, c. 8th century • Music—Irish Melody Translated by Mary E. Byrne, 1880–1931 Versified by Eleanor H. Hull, 1860–1935 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (Proverbs 29:18) Truly our visionary attitude throughout life is often the difference between success and mediocrity. One is reminded of the classic story of the two shoe salesmen who were sent to a primitive island to determine business potential. The first salesman wired back, “Coming home immediately. No one here wears shoes.” The second man responded, “Send a boatload of shoes immediately. The possibilities for selling shoes here are unlimited.” For the Christian, vision is a true awareness of Christ in all of His fullness and enabling power. This ancient 8th century hymn text from Ireland is still meaningful for us today with its expression of a yearning for the presence and leading of God in our lives. The earnest prayer is enhanced …
