 Psalm 8:9 9 Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!     A poem for his mother has become a Classic Hymn. This classic hymn “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” had been heard in traditional church services or during funeral services. H.L. Hastings published it in 1865, and gave full credit to Joseph Medlicott Scriven. Joseph was scheduled to marry his childhood sweetheart in 1844. However, on the eve of their wedding, his fiancée died tragically. Devastated that his dream never realized, he left his home in Ireland, settled in Canada and dedicated his life ..read more

An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your own good, not to res ..read more

1 Corinthians 7:29-31 29 What I mean, brothers and sisters, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they do not; 30 those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; 31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them.

1 Corinthians 7:25-28  25 Now about virgins: I have no command from the Lord, but I give a judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy. 26 Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for a man to remain as he is. 27 Are you pledged to a woman? Do not seek to be released. Are you free from such a commitment? Do not look for a wife. 28 But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this. Planter’s Bo ..read more
