Confession of Faith

The public confession of my faith is one of the highest focal points in my life as a Christian believer. Until this day, I have always been a member of the church; how­ever, today I become a communicant mem­ber. This is a day of great joy, not only for myself but also for the parents, […]

Comforts of the Ascension

No, we cannot see Him anymore.  It used to be that we could see Him in the body, when for a little more than thirty years He was in the flesh and blood of us, His children, and dwelt that way upon the face of this very earth whereon we dwell. But that is no […]

Invincibly Established

“Some twenty years ago an acorn dropped Into a rocky ledge where limestone showed A few white teeth and where the forest stopped Before the red slash of a quarry road. It had no business to be hatching there, A skinny leg of green life on the bare, Inhospitable ledge.  A week, no doubt, Would […]

Standing in 1966

You’re not alone, no matter how your friends take leave of you, in tribulation sore; Nor when you take a stand that alienates the mass, to leave you standing with aught else but firm conviction, and that as based upon God’s Word.

Apathy in Controversy

Contact with and exposure to controversies as youth of the covenant of God are inevitable experiences in that glorious state into which that youth has been called and placed. The surety of this encounter obtains also with respect to adults, of course, who are by no virtue of their own also placed into that relation […]

This Year of Our Lord

This is the year of our Lord, 1965. It has come upon the earth, in spite of the worldling’s vain attempts to obliterate the knowledge of this fact from his mind. Naturally, he desires to have no cognizance of such a thing as that! The fact that he has come through another year, in reality, […]

Thanksgiving of Youth

Protestant Reformed Young People, have you ever stopped to consider your brethren and sisters in the Lord, who are found in distant lands and whose circumstances of life differ markedly from your own? We know, of course, that they are there, for we are told plainly in the Word that God continues to gather His […]
