Man's Spirit Hath an Upward Look
Man's spirit hath an upward look, And robes itself with heavenly wings; E'en when 'tis here compelled to brook Confinement to terrestrial things. Its eye is fastened on the skies; Its wings for flight are opened wide; Why doth it hesitate to rise? And still...

The First Day of the New Life
"Ah, how long shall I delight In the memory of that day," When the shades of mental night Sudden passed away! Long around my darkened view Had those lingering shadows twined; Till the Gospel, breaking through, Chased them from my mind. There  was light in e...

Daniel D. Whedon (1808-1885): "Where God performs directly the work of justification and of regeneration, is it not to be expected that he will as directly give notice of so wonderful a mercy? And this thought suggests the reasonableness of the doctrine of the witness of the Spirit, directly testifying to us that we are born of God."

Ignorant, Yet Full of Wisdom
The Christian is ignorant , and feels himself to be so, and yet is full of divine wisdom . He is ignorant, comparatively speaking, because there are many things, the knowledge of which is not profitable, and which, therefore, he does not  seek. He  cannot s...

Jehovah, Sov'reign of My Heart
Jehovah, sov'reign of my heart! My joy by night and day! From Thee, oh may I never part, From thee, ne'er go astray. Whene'er allurements round me stand, And tempt me from my choice; Oh,  let me find thy gracious hand, Oh,  let me hear thy voice. This vain ...

Long Did the Clouds and Darkness Roll
Long  did the clouds and darkness roll Around my troubled breast; No starlight shone upon my soul, My footsteps found no rest. To human help I looked around, But vainly sought relief; No balm of Gilead I found, No healing for my grief. Then to the Savior's ...

Binney: The Value of the Bible

Weak, Yet Having All Power
The Christian is weak , and yet he has all power .  He has renounced his own strength, as well as his own wisdom. But having no power in himself, he may be said to have all power in God. He can almost say with the Savior, "Thinkest thou that I cannot now pr...

Poor, Yet Having All Riches
Of the truly holy man it can be said, also, he is poor , and yet he has all riches ; he is poor, because he sits loosely to the world, because he cannot set his affections upon it, and because he has nothing which he can call his own. That, which the world ...

Again, it may properly be said of the man who is truly regenerated, and is fashioned anew into the image of Christ, that he is always suffering , and yet always happy . The natural and necessary opposition between the state of his own soul and the condition...

Story
Introduction
I am a retired United Methodist pastor. At various times I’ve been active in the United Methodist camping ministry, Emmaus, Chrysalis, Conference Youth Council, Lay Speakers training, and various other involvements. My ministry has been well received over the years, in the places where I have served. The things I’ve enjoyed about pastoral ministry are: (1.) The opportunities to preach the Gospel; (2.) The opportunities to teach the Bible and the Christian way of life; (3.) The privilege of being with people in important moments of joy and sorrow in their lives. You can find out more about me here: http://www.craigladams.com/
