A Horse Called Willing by Rebecca Martin



Look inside the book

When Lady's carefree gallop across the pasture ended in disaster, the family needed another horse. That's how Willing arrived at their farm. Willing was a model of . . . stubbornness. Through the adventures, struggles, and surprises that followed, Joel learned about willingness, getting along with others, and, most important of all, that God does all things well.

As an Amish boy living on a small farm, Joel's life is different from many. Yet, many of his experiences and troubles are similar to most children - loneliness, sadness, joy, fun, chores and school. Joel and his brother face challenges and learn how to live to please God.

The Lord is Merciful (Arabic or Farsi)

Farsi
 
Arabic
Full text of The Lord is Merciful
Yes, the Lord is merciful! How thankful we are that He is, for we are all sinners and in need of His mercy. The Bible says, “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy” (Psalm 103:8).
There are some, however, who take God’s mercy for granted, forgetting that the same Bi­ble, which tells us He is merciful, also tells us that “it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31). It is easy to speak of God’s mercy as though this meant He would look at sin lightly as we often do. In­deed some think, or hope, that He will over­look their sins altogether, because He is love.
Now we rejoice indeed that God is merciful and gracious, but He never has been, and He never will be, merciful at the expense of His holiness. His character is unchangeable, and He cannot lie. He cannot pass over sin, for His Word says, “Every transgression and disobe­dience received a just recompense of re­ward” (Hebrews 2:2). What would we think of a court where every guilty person was acquit­ted, just because the judge was merciful! Jus­tice would be gone. We might as well close up the courtroom and proclaim to the people that they could do just as they pleased and never be punished. Is God less just than man? Let His Word give us the answer: “Justice and judgment are the habitation of Thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before Thy face” (Psalm 89:14). Will He punish sin? Indeed He will. “God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5). Men may escape the justice of earthly courts, but “all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do” (Hebrews 4:13).
Now since God is holy, as well as merciful, how can He show His mercy to sinners like us, who are guilty before Him? This is where the cross of Christ tells out the love of God. God loves us but hates our sins. He desires to show us mercy, but justice demands that we be pun­ished. And so on the cross the whole question of our sins and guilt was completely settled forever. God took all the sins of all who would believe and placed them upon His spotless Son, and then He punished Him instead of us. “He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righ­teousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21). Divine justice is now fully satisfied, because all its claims have been fully met. “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures:...He was buried ... and He rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3‑4). The resurrection of Christ is the proof that God is fully satisfied with the work His Son has done, and now He can “be JUST, and the JUSTIFIER of him which believeth in Jesus” (Romans 3:26).
It is not for us to vainly hope that God will pass over our sins, for He cannot. But those who turn to Him, owning their sin and guilt, and believing in Christ’s finished work, are saved. God is not looking for some goodness in us, for we have none before Him. He is not asking us to try to do better, for our very na­tures are bad and sinful. We cannot buy His salvation, nor can it be obtained by anything that we can do. It is a free gift: “The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). God is waiting to hear the sinner say, “I have sinned.” If you are not saved, take your true place before Him now, as lost and helpless, unable to save yourself.
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
There is no other way.
God wants to be merciful to you, but the only way to obtain His mercy is to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour. If you re­ject God’s gracious offer of pardon, there will be no mercy for you. Judgment is ahead of you in the lake of fire forever. Why not re­ceive the Lord Jesus as your own personal Saviour today?

A Faithful Friend


Full text of A Faithful Friend:
The farmer’s dog had been very useful to him, but the dog was getting old. The farmer decided to drown him.
Taking the dog with him to a large river near his farm, the farmer got into a boat and rowed out to the deepest part. He tied a rope around the dog’s neck and attached the other end to a heavy stone. Then he threw both into the water.
The poor dog sank, but the rope broke. The dog rose to the surface and, with a whine, tried to get back into the boat. Unswayed, his master repeatedly shoved back the scrambling dog. Finally, the farmer stood up in the boat, intending to beat his dog hard enough with the oar to send him to the bottom. Losing his balance, the farmer splashed into the water.
Loving Friend
The man couldn’t swim, and he was too far away to reach the boat. The dog saw his master drowning, and, in spite of the cruel treatment he had just received from him, the dog swam over, caught hold of his clothes, and brought his master safely to shore.
How cruel and heartless the farmer was to his faithful dog! We may even feel the man deserved to drown. We hope he had a change of heart and repaid his faithful friend by taking good care of the dog for the rest of his days.
Let’s turn this picture around. Aren’t you and I, and everyone else, far more guilty than this farmer in our treatment of the kindness and love of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ?
Consider This
Jesus came into this world and spent His life doing good, healing the sick, giving sight to the blind, raising the dead, feeding the hungry, and bringing joy and relief to the sad and weary. But how was He treated in return? Men cried, “Away with Him” (John 19:15), and nailed Him to a cross to die!
How evil and cruel men were to put to death Jesus, the Son of God—the one perfect, sinless man sent in love from God. Putting Him to death exposed the hatred and hostility of man’s heart against God.
Who Has a Sinful Heart?
Were those men who put Christ to death the only ones who have sinful hearts? Certainly not! You and I have sinful hearts just like those who cried, “Away with Him,” for God says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). Just like those men, we’ll take His blessings one moment but want to get rid of Him the next if what He says doesn’t agree with what we want.
Take a close look at that blessed Son of God on the cross. He doesn’t resist the cruelty inflicted upon Him. He doesn’t say one word in anger or show resentment. The prophet Isaiah declares, “He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is [silent]” (Isaiah 53:7). Instead, when everything is against Him, His love flows out to a world of guilty sinners. He prays, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).
The cross is the place where men tried to get rid of Him. Instead, His death and resurrection become the means by which His saving power flows out to all who come in repentance, admitting they are sinners, and receive Him as their Saviour and Lord.
The faithful dog saved his ungrateful master’s life, but Jesus saves not for time only but for eternity. He gives eternal life to whosoever will believe!
Faith in the Saviour
If you have not placed your faith in this blessed Saviour, receive Him now before it is too late. Soon He will come in judgment on this world, when His anger “shall burn as an oven” (Malachi 4:1). Then He will be your judge!
“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 John 4:9-10).

Is Jesus the Son of God? by Ernest Hahn


A delicate handling of a very fundamental belief of Islam in light of the Scriptures. Written by a Christian worker of over 50 years experience with Muslims.

Full text of tract:

Perhaps no other name is so well known in the world as the name of Jesus the Messiah. Everywhere there are people who acknowledge the Messiah as God's great gift through whom He has blessed all mankind.

Who, then is this Jesus the Messiah, that He is God's great gift for mankind? Here we wish to consider briefly only Christian and Muslim responses to this question. Through this consideration we hope to clear some misunderstandings which may exist between these two communities in regard to Jesus the Messiah.

Christians say that Jesus is the Son of God. Muslims say that Jesus is a great prophet like all other great prophets. They ask: "How can God have a son? Who, then, is God's wife through whom God has a son? God has no wife, nor does He have a son. To say that God has a son is to be guilty of sin of shirk, the sin of associating a partner with Allah. God is one. He alone rules. He has no son as an associate."

While discussing who Jesus is, how often helpful conversation between Muslim and Christian ceases at the point of Jesus' Sonship. Too often the Christian fails to explain why he calls Jesus the Son of God. Too often the Muslim fails to investigate for himself what the Holy Injil (the New Testament) means when Jesus is called Son of God. Regarding this matter, may we present only briefly the following points:

1. The Injil clearly states that Jesus is the Son of God. He is called Son of God by his disciples: "You are the Christ (Messiah), the Son of the living God" (Injil, Matthew 16:16). He is called Son of God by the Heavenly Father: "This is my beloved Son with whom I am well pleased" (Matthew 3:17). He calls Himself the Son of God: "Again the High Priest asked him, 'Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?' and Jesus said, 'I am..." (Mark 14:61,62). Many other passages in the Injil also refer to Jesus as the Son of God.

Yet the Muslim may ask: "Are these passages really in the Injil? Have they not been inserted in later times so that the Injil has become corrupted?" To such questions we may only reply: "The Injil is God's Holy Book. He has preserved it and He will preserve it." It is wrong to conclude that since Jesus is called the Son of God, therefore the Injil has been corrupted.

2. Let us now consider what the Injil does not mean when Jesus is called the Son of God. The Injil agrees with the Muslim that God has no wife, nor through a wife a son. Jesus is not called the Son of God because He is born of Mary. (Before Mary was born, the Son of God is, as we shall see.) Nor does the Injil attempt to make a man God or a god besides God. God alone is God!

In all these ways Jesus is not the Son of God according to the Injil. To think that Jesus is called the Son of God in any or all these ways is to misunderstand the Injil. Again let each one examine the matter for himself with the intelligence that God has given him.

3. What, then, does the Injil mean when Jesus is called the Son of God? Let us state it thus: If God can see and hear without having created eyes and ears as we have; if God can have a face and hands different from our created faces and hands; if God can sit upon a throne different from thrones men occupy; if all this be possible with God -- and most Muslims would agree that it is -- is, then, is it not possible that God can have a Son different from the sons we know? If God so will, cannot God have a son without a wife and sex?

The Injil states that God has such a Son. The Injil states that this Son is also called God's Word. As God's Word is eternal, so also His Son is eternal. The eternal Son of God is thus the eternal Word of God, God's expression of Himself.

On the first Christmas Day, almost two thousand years ago, this eternal Son came from heaven into our world. Through the power of God's Holy Spirit, God's eternal Son became man and prophet. He became man by being born of the Virgin Mary.

The Angel Jibra'il told Mary that He should be called Jesus. But the angel Jibra'il also told her: "He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest" (Luke 1:32). This is why Jesus, though a prophet, is more than a prophet. This is why Jesus is called Jesus, which means "Saviour from sin". He is the Son of God. He is also the Son of Man.

If God's eternal Word can become a book, why cannot His eternal Word become a man?

4. But why did God will that His eternal Son and Word come down from Heaven to earth? Simply because God willed to show mankind who He is and what He wants to do for mankind. As the Son of God, who has become man, Jesus can fulfill this purpose of God. That is why He alone can say: "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). "He who has seen me has seen the Father" (John 14:9).

Jesus alone is God's revelation of Himself to mankind for mankind's salvation. He, the Son of God, is God showing us Himself and His love for us in terms we finite creatures can understand. This, then, is the meaning of the Injil when Jesus is called the Son of God. Thus the Injil states: "In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets; but in these last days He has spoken to us by a Son..." (Hebrews 1:1,2).

Centuries before the birth of Jesus a great prophet, despairing over the sin of mankind, cried out to God: "O that Thou wouldst rend the heavens and come down" (Bible, Isaiah 64:1). In Jesus, the eternal Son of God, God has fulfilled the prayer of this prophet. Behold Jesus, and you will behold God's greatness and glory. Behold Jesus, and you will behold God, most merciful and compassionate, present with men. Learn from Jesus God's love and concern to save you and all mankind.

Many of you already possess the Bible or Injil or a part of it. Read it once more with care and with prayer. Open your heart and mind to its message. It will prove a great blessing to you. Such is our prayer for you.

Stronger Than the Sword by Faith Cook


Though the characters are fictitious, they represent the truth. Their lives are interwoven with historical figures, such as John Bunyan. Set during a time of great persecution, the focus is on a typical family living in Somerset at that time. The lesson is clear: we do not fear those who kill the body, but must have faith that is ‘stronger than the sword’.
A farmer, searching the moors at night for his son, missing after a skirmish in the English Civil War, stumbles across a Royalist soldier lying severely injured in a ditch. His decision to help the man will have surprising repercussions in years to come, both for his own family and for the stranger whose life was saved at great personal cost to his rescuers.
Set in times when to refuse to conform to the forms of worship imposed by the state was to risk fines or imprisonment, The circumstances of the lives of the central characters are set in the context of these stirring historical events.
These people are representative of the countless numbers of Christians worldwide who, down the centuries, have demonstrated a faith in the living God which is stronger than the sword – a faith that prevails even though a civil power may attempt to crush and annihilate it. As such, their example challenges Christians today to remain faithful to the truths of Scripture, cost what it may and however subtle the forms in which persecution may be presented.

John Knox: Who Will You Save? By Catherine Mackenzie


Look inside the book
John Knox was a bright young lad who grew up to be a strong fighter for freedom and liberty. He had a gentle but fiercely loyal heart and became a stalwart defender of the reformed faith. He thundered the truth that neither good works, popes or priests can save you from sin - but Christ alone. This fiery Scot refused to give in to religion or royalty - it was the Bible, the Word of God that was his standard.
