Graveside Prayer - Dave Johnson

Lord, we want to praise and thank You again for the precious gift of our friend & beloved brother, Bill MacDonald. Words fail us as we try to express our heart-felt gratitude for giving us such a godly man who means so much to us, a man who truly was a spiritual father to so many of us. He was a brother who daily reminded us of the character & grace of Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ and consistently pointed us to Him. He was a brother who was the embodiment of what Paul sa...

January

January 1 “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.” (Exodus 12:2) New Year’s resolutions are good but fragile, that is, easily broken. New Year’s prayers are better; they ascend to the throne of God and set answering wheels in motion. As we come to the beginning of another year, we would do well to make the following prayer requests our own: Lord Jesus, I rededicate myself afresh to You today. I want you to take m...

February

February 1 “…the gospel of the glory of Christ.” (2 Cor. 4:4) We should never forget that the gospel is the good news of the glory of Christ. True, it concerns the One who was crucified and who was buried. But He is no longer on the Cross, no longer in the Tomb. He has risen, has ascended to heaven, and is the glorified Man at God’s right hand. We do not present Him as the humble Carpenter of Nazareth, the suffering Servant or the Stranger of Galilee. Neither do we present H...

April

April 1 “…in Him you have been made complete.” (Col. 2:10 NASB) Contrary to popular opinion, there are no degrees of fitness for heaven. A person is either absolutely fit or he is not fit at all. This goes counter to the common notion that at the top of God’s totem pole are good, clean-living people, at the bottom are the crooks and mobsters, and in between are those with varying degrees of fitness for heaven. It is an enormous mistake. We are either fit or we aren’t. There i...

July

July 1 “…then shall I know even as also I am known.” (1 Cor. 13:12) It is quite normal and understandable for us as Christians to wonder if we will know our loved ones in heaven. While there is no Scripture that deals specifically with the subject, there are several lines of reasoning that lead us to a positive conclusion. First of all, the disciples recognized Jesus in His resurrected, glorified body. His physical appearance was unchanged. There was no mistaking that ...

December

December 1 “If thou shalt hear say…then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain…” (Deut. 13:12, 14) If a rumor circulated that the people of a city in Israel had forsaken God for idols, there had to be an intensive investigation before any punitive action could be taken. We should be no less careful when we hear a rumor or gossip, but should apply the six tests: Is it hearsay? Have I inquired? Have I made se...

November

November 1 “In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.” (Eccl. 11:6) Our ignorance as to how and when God will use our service should prompt us to be tireless in buying up opportunities. The Lord often works when we least expect it, and He works in an infinite number of novel ways. A Christian sailor, stationed at a naval air base, was standing...
