Monday Meditations

The ultimate goal of redemption is to make us worshipers. The Lord Jesus Christ said: “…True worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.” (John 4:23 ESV)

Worship, while difficult to define, is the result of being occupied with Christ – His person and work.

This weekly meditation is prepared by Dr. Sandy Higgins. Its purpose is to give believers truth to think about and develop in their own minds and hearts throughout the week. Ultimately, as the week progresses, daily worship will result in hearts full of adoration for the Lord Jesus on the Lord’s Day (Sunday) as believers gather to remember Him.

Dr. A.J. Higgins is the Editor of the Christian magazine, Truth and Tidings and is well known in many parts of the world for his relevant and clear Bible teaching. He lives in New Jersey with his wife Ruth.

Cries from Calvary #6 “It is Finished.”

By On April 30, 2017

Rarely a Breaking of Bread passes without these words being quoted. Many of our hymns quote them verbatim, worshiping God for a completed work. Legions are those who have come to Christ and salvation by reason of these words. We are frequently reminded that in the original language, His cry was actually only one word. The “tetelestai” has been interpreted…

Cries from Calvary #4

“Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani?’ That is to say, My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46) The middle cry from the cross was a question, a question which must have echoed on the shores of the moral universe. A perfect Man was nailed to a cross, crucified under the aegis of Roman justice. But was this question…
