Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion, My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry

ev’rything to God in prayer!

In the Fullness of Time

When the fullness of time came,
God sent forth His Son,
born of a woman,
born under the Law,
so that He might redeem those
who were under the Law,
that we might receive
the adoption as sons.
Galatians 4:5 NASB

Who is on the Lord’s Side?

When are you going to make Jesus’ last command your first priority? This question came from a former pastor.¹ After 30 years I still find it challenging. The following is the last command Jesus gave to the disciples:
