A Message From Jon

For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

Psalm 118:8

The Joy of Jesus to You All This Day!

I wanted to take a moment to express to you my deepest appreciation for you and thankfulness to Him in allowing us here at SearchLight the privilege of studying through God's Word together, day after day and year after year.

And one day soon together we will literally be at The Master's feet gleaning and gaining perfect understanding that will result in joyous and endless praise bursting forth from the deepest parts of our hearts!

And I am convinced that such joy and praise will indeed likely be proportional to our present hungering for and wrestling with and praying in and submitting to and the applying of The Scriptures on this side of Eternity.

So let's keep at it and keep with it until that Glorious Day when we conversate with Him about any-and-all aspects of His Eternal Word.

Amen? ... Amen!!

God Bless You All,

Jon

And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men.
1 Samuel 2:26
 
Samuel kept growing in God. And what happened? He not only found favor in the eyes of the Lord, but also in the eyes of men. Our kids sometimes have the mistaken idea that if they stand for the Lord and walk with Him, they’ll be put down or left out. Not true. Yes, there will be a certain degree of persecution in the Christian walk, but notice what happened to Samuel. He found favor in the eyes of God and of men too.

Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk with the ungodly and sit in the seat of the scornful, but whose delight is in the Law of the Lord. Whatever he does will prosper (Psalm 1). As parents, we need to remind our kids that the real key to having a prosperous, exciting life, the key to finding favor in the eyes of both God and men, is to do what Samuel did. He walked with the Lord, and God blessed him indeed.
