Just A Thought

The Lord said in Matt 6:33: “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

The Lord was not telling us to be lazy, or to sit around idle and wait for God to provide our natural needs for us, or for God to provide for the families we have been blessed with: He is telling us to seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and in so doing, His truth and His Holy Spirit will guide us into godly paths, and bless us in obtaining the things we need to serve Him, to take care of our churches and our families in the right order, and in ways taught and approved of the Lord.

Elder George Walker (dec)


"For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands." (Psalms 92:4)

Most of us when we are blessed to do a work that is pleasing unto the Lord, afterwards we sit back and think to ourselves. "Look what I have done." When really we have done nothing except use the gift that the Lord has given us. Every good thing that we have, every good thought that comes out of our minds, comes from the Lord. Who's work is it that makes us glad, Who's works can we rejoice in? Surely it is not our works, it is not our goodness, it is not the works of ours hands, nor the thoughts that provoked us in doing better. You see we are speaking about the finished work of Jesus Christ. As David speaks in this verse, "For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work." Your work O Lord is what delivers me, your work that paid the price for my salvation, your work that made me free from the law of sin death, your work O Lord, your work alone.



The following quote is from Elder Mark Green in the March 2017 issue of The Primitive Baptist / The Christian Pathway / Gospel Appeal; and concerns Slothfulness and Inventiveness.

“When we avoid doing what we ought to do, it almost always follows that soon we will begin doing what we ought not to be doing.”

 About Light

• Folks love the light when they are doing what is right; but don't like it much when they are not.

• The Lord said: “Let your light so shine.” He was not saying to let folks see what you have done for the Lord, but what the Lord has done in you.

• Men love darkness rather than light, because they don't want folks to see what they are doing.

• Walking in the light is a full time job: The minute you take your eye off it, your back in the dark.

• Folks sometimes don't like the division of light and darkness much, and think there has to be a gray area for them to coast a while. Nope.

• I never heard anybody say: “I do my best anything in the dark.” Except maybe sleeping.



GOOD & PLEASANT is found in Psalms 133:1—3. Some things are Good, but not pleasant and some things are pleasant but not good.

So, we read herein: Vs.1 – Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

Vs.2 – It is like the pleasant ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; Vs.3 – As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.”

These few words are of great value, as we struggle to learn to deal with our “FEELINGS” in this world. One more quote: John 16:33 – Jesus says – briefly – In this world ye shall have tribulations but be of good cheer as he has overcome the world.
