DAILY MESSAGE

There is a perfect freedom to be known and enjoyed in and through the indwelling presence and power of Christ. He comes not only to liberate you from sin, self and Satan’s dominion, He inhabits to maintain this state of liberation so that you can live and act in accord with His great design for life. He has not only set the pattern for a glorious and victorious existence, all that is essential to know the same is now available to you from Him so that you can achieve the quality of life that stands approved by God. So today, by the input of His love, grace and power, you can be the kind of person He wills you to be and fulfil His expectations. Instead of grovelling under the burden and power of evil, you will excel and know the dynamic of His presence and power in you, making you successful and joyful in righteousness, goodness and kindness.

SACRED SONGS

Jesus the name High Over All

This is one of those hymns which, as Dr. Tel­ford re­marks, has “stamped it­self deep in the re­li­gious life of Meth­od­ism.” Few hymns have been more quot­ed by Meth­od­ist min­is­ters in their dy­ing hours than this, es­pe­cial­ly the last stan­za. But per­haps the young­est “preach­er” that ev­er made use of it ten­der­ly and ef­fect­iv­ely in the dy­ing hour is de­scribed in the fol­low­ing in­ci­dent, which serves al­so to show how the ear­ly Meth­od­ists taught such hymns as this to their child­ren at home and in Sun­day Schools:

By a dis­tress­ing ac­ci­dent a lit­tle girl on­ly sev­en years of age was se­vere­ly burned and had to be tak­en to a hos­pi­tal in Lon­don. At a Meth­od­ist Sun­day school she had learned to love and to sing the hymn be­gin­ning, “Je­sus, the name high over all.” On the last night of her life all the pa­tients were qui­et in the ward where she lay, and no­thing was heard but the tick and strike of the clock, when sud­den­ly the lit­tle suf­fer­er broke the si­lence by sweet­ly sing­ing…from her fa­vour­ite hymn…Then si­lence reigned again in the room, and for some time, as be­fore, on­ly the tick­ing of the clock was heard when the me­lo­di­ous voice of the lit­tle suf­fer­er again broke the si­lence and many other suf­fer­ers in the room heard her sing­ing soft­ly: “Hap­py, if with my lat­est breath I may but gasp his name”…

And with that the lit­tle preach­er’s voice was in­deed hushed in death, but not un­til ma­ny had heard, in the words of this ten­der song as she so sweet­ly sang it, a gos­pel mess­age ne­ver to be for­got­ten.

1/. Jesus! the Name high over all, In hell or earth or sky;
Angels and men before it fall, And devils fear and fly.

2/. Jesus! the Name to sinners dear, The Name to sinners giv’n;
It scatters all their guilty fear, It turns their hell to Heav’n.

3/. Jesus! the prisoner’s fetters breaks, And bruises Satan’s head;
Power into strengthless souls it speaks, And life into the dead.

4/. O that mankind might taste and see The riches of His grace!
The arms of love that compass me Would all the world embrace.

5/. O that my Jesu’s heavenly charms Might every bosom move!
Fly, sinners, fly into those arms Of everlasting love.

6/. Thee I shall constantly proclaim, Though earth and hell oppose;
Bold to confess Thy glorious Name Before a world of foes.

7/. His only righteousness I show, His saving grace proclaim;
’Tis all my business here below To cry “Behold the Lamb!”

8/. Happy, if with my latest breath I may but gasp His Name,
Preach Him to all and cry in death, “Behold, behold the Lamb!”

DAILY MEDITATIONS

AN ANGEL’S MESSAGE – Matthew 28: 1-15

Throughout the Bible we read of angels being sent with very special messages to people with news of great significance to them in their situation. It happened on the day of Christ’s resurrection. When the womenfolk arrived at the tomb they were in for quite a shock.  The stone that presented an obstacle to them had been rolled away. There was no longer a problem because God had attended to it. The Good News was from the divine herald: “He isn’t here” –v6. A new day had dawned with the testimony that Christ had vacated the tomb and was very much alive.

This truth had to be registered in their minds and become a dynamic factor within their lives and ministries in the forthcoming days. The emphasis came: “Remember, I have told you” – v7. This main truth was to be fully applied so that it would make an essential difference to both belief and behaviour. During the next forty days Christ committed Himself to this task in making sure they knew He was alive forevermore – Acts 1: 1-3.  They were not to be left in any doubt on this. He was alive and was with them.

Be assured, Christ is alive today and is in control of Christianity. Real Christianity will express this in a powerful and dynamic manner. The risen Christ is to be resident in every genuine Christian believer, making His presence, power and purposes known. Paul could say: “Christ liveth in me” – Galatians 2: 20. It is only through the indwelling, living Christ that you can truly demonstrate the worth and wealth of Christ. He comes to share the reality and fullness of Himself in those that look to His indwelling and input. He is yours today!
