Charles Wesley wrote the poetry for 7,270 hymns during his lifetime. Born in England in 1707 as the brother of John Wesley, he had 4,000 works published during his lifetime. His contemplation regarding the birth of Jesus Christ brought Charles to pen the lines of perhaps the most scripturally prolific Christmas hymn that we sing today. “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” was originally a poem entitled “Hymn for Christmas Day” and had no fixed tune from which to sing it for over 100 years.

    Our vast insufficiencies point us to the One Who is all-sufficient. It is then that we are enabled to practice “reverse gratitude” – that of being thankful for what we did not have. Thank you, Lord!

    The blessings of America and the wonderful Christian heritage we have enjoyed here are innumerable. The Psalmist David writes: “The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage” (Psalm 16:6). We are privileged to say the same concerning our churches, our families, our freedoms and our access to Scripture. The blessing of having Christian friends is greatly thankworthy.

    Every real Christian is called to be a missionary for Christ. The mission is laid out before him or her: They are to encourage others to be forgiven of sin through “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21).

    We have been a blessed nation in the past because we recognized that God was the One doing the blessing. Humanistic fantasies were not so commonly held years ago. Darwinism did not hold such a suffocating grip on our system of education back then. We believed then, and many still do today, what the Psalmist wrote in 100:3: “Know ye that the Lord he is God, it is he that had made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.”

    Bible truth will give a nation greater freedom; good government; and true education, science and literature. It will reduce crime, costly ventures, animosities, social ills, psychological hang-ups and wasted lives. The Bible is the answer for racism, Marxism, false religion and low-life citizenship. It can put a stop to alcohol, excess food and drug consumption, as well as child abuse, gambling and sex trafficking. All of this without more taxes or bureaucracy.

    You and I can get started on our way there, or else furthered along our way, by trusting what God has told us in His Word. We have no better authorship in which we may place our dependence. The unchanging Bible was authorized in 1611, and that old Book still points the way to the gates of that eternal city called Heaven.

    Solomon’s life proved that worldly pleasures are ultimately unsatisfactory. His mistakes are included in Scripture so that we will not include them in our lives. Believe what we read in the Bible, and let God’s Word bring us to the right life of holiness and happiness. Find your way to the prayer closet, and thank God for wanting us to still belong to Him!

    Mark 9:50 encourages: “Salt is good, but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it?” Salt can also dissipate, and we are advised in this same verse: “Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.” Please pass the salt!

    Scripture leaves no doubt as to how God arranged for folks in our day to be forgiven for sin and take residence in Heaven on their appointed day. In speaking about the prepared mansion and the directions to it, “Jesus saith unto him (Thomas), ‘I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me’” (John 14:6).
