"The object of these pages is simple, clear, holy. It is to arouse attention to the blessed truth, that Christ pervades all Scripture, as salt all waters of the sea, as light the brightest day, as fragrance the garden of choice flowers.

"To see this is my prime delight. To testify it is my happiest duty. Devoted loyalty to Him who is the first and last, the sum and substance of all Scripture, impels me. Earnest zeal for the undying souls of men constrains me. I know, and am intensely persuaded, that all peace, all joy, all salvation, are in Jesus. My eyes are widely open to the fact that men are blessed, and are blessings, just in proportion as they live, ever gazing on Christ, ever listening to His voice.

"Shame, then, and guilt and woe would be my portion, if I should leave any effort untried to unfold His glorious image. Let me rather use every power of life and pen to magnify and exalt Him—to beseech men to ponder Him—to search for Him—to receive Him—to love Him—to follow Him—to serve Him—to commend Him—to live in Him, and through Him, and for Him. I would thus strive, the Spirit helping, to assail and melt and conquer hearts, that Christ may there be enthroned, in all His rightful majesty, a beloved and adored Lord." (Preface to Christ Is All, by Henry Law.)

Welcome! This website is for anyone who is seeking to learn more about God's word.

You now can read our Bible studies in a variety of languages. Just select your language from the drop down box which appears in the right hand column of every page.

My goal is to create a library of daily Bible studies which can be used as daily devotions or as readable commentaries for lesson or sermon preparation. Hopefully I have met the criteria set forth by Henry Law.
Thank you for visiting this site and for your interest in learning and distributing God's Holy Word. May God bless you and use you in mighty ways. If you are a new Christian or an unbeliever seeking truth, let me suggest that you begin with the book of Matthew. The life and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring you joy and blessings beyond belief.

Standing Firm

Psalms 16:8

8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Although David wrote this passage, it is clear that the Holy Spirit was inspiring him to speak for his descendant, Jesus Christ. In Acts 2:25 Peter quoted the rest of this psalm in his speech, which he gave on the day of Pentecost, and clearly stated that David was speaking about the Christ. Yet, we may assume that David also felt that the words of this verse applied to himself.

To set the LORD always before you, one must focus on Him continuously. In our study of the previous verse, we saw that Jesus frequently prayed all night long and received guidance and counsel from God the Father. Spurgeon, however, points out that Jesus was also the man of many sorrows. He wept over the sinful rebellion of the people in Jerusalem; He knew that many people would suffer eternal condemnation in spite of the fact that He would die for their si ns; and He knew what kind of suffering and death He was facing. With all of this on his shoulders, how could he maintain such a perfect inner peace and confidence?

To set the LORD always before His face, Jesus had to walk by faith and not be sight. John Calvin, commenting on this verse, wrote, "To set God before us is nothing else than to keep all our senses bound and captive, that they may not run out and go astray after any other object. We must look to him with other eyes than those of the flesh, for we shall seldom be able to perceive him unless we elevate our minds above the world; and faith prevents us from turning our back upon him." It is necessary for us, therefore, to bring every thought and every imagination into the captivity of Jesus Christ so that we are not tempted to turn away from Him.   Read More
