Oh, the wondrous things which Moses saw with his own eyes! Among the things that he saw was the bush that burned but was not consumed from which the Lord spoke to him (Ex. 3). He saw the mighty hand of God working in the ten wonders that plagued the Egyptian people and Pharaoh (Ex. 7-12 ). He saw the Red Sea open up as a wall on either side of him and then proceeded to walk through across on dry ground (Ex. 14:21-31). He saw the earth open up and destroy the adversaries of the Lord. In spite of all of this, even with all that Moses had already seen, he still asked Jehovah, “Shew me Thy glory” (Ex. 33:18).

It is impossible to understand who God is without also understanding something of the glory of the Lord. The word glory is used in scripture to describe praiseworthiness or that which sets one above another in some particular respect. It is that which brings renown. In scripture, when used of men, it is often used of one’s wealth, for instance (cf. Gen. 31:1; Psalm 49:17), or one’s personal dignity (cf. Psalm 30:12) or of man’s wisdom and strength (Jer. 9:23,24). It is also used of things such as the forests of Israel (Is. 10:18) and nations (Matt. 4:8). But man’s glory is as fleeting as the grass which withers away (I Pet. 1:24). . . .

Digital Library

The Mt. Vernon Church of Christ is building a digital library to aid serious Bible students in their study.  When possible, we will be adding new volumes.  We are grateful to the many sources from which we draw these volumes for making these available.  We take no credit for them ourselves.  We do not necesarrily endorse everything in every volume.  We simply provide them as aids to Bible study.  This week:

Harding Lectures - 1950

"The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament showeth his handiwork" (Ps. 19:1).

There are but two alternatives relative to the origin of the universe: natural creation (that all the amazing, imponderable, multitudinous phenomena were the products of an infinite number of accidents and blind chance), or supernatural creation ("In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth," Gen. 1:1). The only specific thing the Bible says about atheism is found in less than one-half of a verse, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God" (Ps. 14:1; repeated in Ps. 53:1). And there is never any discussion in God's Word that He may not exist!  The evidence that "God is" is overwhelming; the Word simply states this fact, without argument or debate. How can anyone question His existence in light of all that is manifest in the physical universe (as well as in the Sacred Scriptures)? . . .

Golden Thought

A man never so beautifully shows his own strength, as when he respects another's weakness.
~~ Jerrold


When I was young and songs were sung that did not sound like rap,
There wasn’t any Under Armor, Nike Shoes, or Gap

Our clothes came from the catalogs of Wards or maybe Sears,
More likely they were hand-me-downs but things changed through the years.

I used to get my brother’s bibs and if they were too long,
I rolled them up two times or three and that did not seem wrong,

My socks had holes in heal or toe, my shoe souls worn clear through,
Christmas time, the only time I got clothes that were new.

Striped, long sleeved polo shirts and jeans of nondescript,
Big brass buttons on the fly, I wanted some that zipped.

But I was happy just to get some clothes not worn before,
Because I understood the times and knew that we were poor.

We did not have computers then and not a TV set,
No video games or cell phones and alas, no internet.

We had a table radio that played a lot of static,
No Siri or Alexa and not one thing automatic.

To pass the time we played outdoors, maybe hide and seek,
We roller skated, rode our bikes, six days every week,

We did not lack for things to do, we never had to search,
And every Sunday morning you would see us going to church.

It’s sad today that kids don’t know nor could they understand,
That all the name brand shoes and clothes are not what makes a man,

They have to have expensive clothes with brand names on display,
And hundred dollar sneakers or whatever Mom will pay.

Spending hours on their cell phones and lost in video games,
These actions have reactions and the devil is to blame,

One only has to look about at our society,
And wonder what the future holds for youth, for you and me.

We’re spoiled as a society and wealth has made it so,
We’re victims of prosperity and this could lead to woe,

We understand that what goes up, eventually comes down,
History says affluent times can quickly turn around.

Teach the young that value comes, not from those things we buy,
Value is within ourselves in everything we try,

I would go back to yesterday, to times of wants and needs,
To times of care, to share and bear, its where my soul bleeds.

—Ron Bliss
