|Christ Lost and Found | Beverly Carradine, 1898||Jesus/Savior|
He was lost here according to this Scripture. And He was lost by those who loved Him. And lost in Jerusalem and in the Temple!.... And yet why be astonished when the same thing is happening today. Christ is still lost by His friends, and in Jerusalem, and in the Temple.

I did the stupidest thing—attempt to pull the truck back with my own strength—of course, that didn't help anything. The truck bucked over the curb, and then plowed into the aluminum-extruded, glass-fronted entryway... ka-BOOOOM!

|Himself | Albert B. Simpson, 1891||Jesus/Savior|
That is the way to look at the Scriptures and understand the thoughts of God—to see in them the face of Love, shining through and through. Not ideas, nor doctrines, but Jesus Himself as the Life and Source and sustaining Presence of all our life.

|Jesus’ Friendships | James R. Miller, 1910||Jesus/Savior|
Some have suggested that a colony be established that would exclude all ignorant and obnoxious people. That was not the thought of Christ in founding His church.... He was a friend to the worst, that He might make them fit to be among the best.

|“Look unto Me, and Be Saved” | Charles H. Spurgeon, 1897||Jesus/Savior|
I sometimes think I might have been in darkness and despair until now had it not been for the goodness of God in sending a snowstorm, one Sunday morning, while I was going to a certain place of worship. When I could go no further, I turned down a side street....

|More than Conquerors | Albert B. Simpson, 1890||Jesus/Savior|
Are we looking upon our spiritual adversaries and obstacles as things that have come, not to crush us, but to be cast down for the honor and glory of our Captain's cause? Thus shall we be "more than conquerors through him that loved us."

|Personal Love for Jesus | George D. Watson, 1896||Jesus/Savior|
Very few Christians reach such an intimacy with our dear Lord as to receive and appreciate His individual feelings. Jesus is an infinite lover, and nothing will satisfy Him but a pure, sacred, passionate, and personal love.

|Remembering Christ’s Birth | Mark P. Spinks, 2017||Jesus/Savior|
Each of the characters God used in recording the events around Jesus' birth have their precious story.... God's dealings with each of these Bible figures offers a wealth of insights that He will apply to our own lives if we take the time to study and ponder.

|The Extraordinarily Appropriate Gift | Mark P. Spinks, 2002||Jesus/Savior|
We needed someone like this—oh, how we needed and do need Him! He has exactly what we need. He is not too high and beyond our reach, and He is not too low. We needed someone holy who could make us holy and keep us holy.

|The Face of the Master | James R. Miller, 1903||Jesus/Savior|
The face of Jesus Christ must have been very beautiful... with the true beauty produced by a pure and spotless life. Sin disfigures the countenance, and there was no sin in Him.... What goes on in the depths of our being, comes up to the surface.

|Thy Name Is as Ointment Poured Forth |
"Very precious" and "very costly" still falls short of the measure of this treasure. Oh, if we could but see how much was contained in the simple words Christ spoke to His disciples, to us: "This is my body, which is broken for you"; "my blood... which is poured out for you."

"Isn't Tall Friend kind to us?" Gran Coon whispered in Sobbit's ear. "We have no reason to worry, do we?" "But someday Tall Friend might forget us," Sobbit Wimba said, as he watched the canoe glide away. "What will we do then?"

|Treasures of the Kingdom, Number 70 (Spring 2016) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2016||Jesus/Savior|
Blameless means without fault. You can only live that way by giving up your own ideas and trusting Jesus with everything. Even if others aren't behaving. Even when it seems like your job is too big.... If Jesus wants you to do it, you can ask Him for everything you need!
