Chocolate Cake --July 18


[I knew that would get your attention! Now that you're here, you may as well keep reading!]


Read 1Corinthians 4:8-18
...all things work together for good.... Romans 8:28


It was my privilege for several years to work with Rev. Wendell P. Loveless when we were both at the Moody Bible Institute station, WMBI, Chicago. I recall how he used to tell about the delicious cake which Mrs. Loveless often baked for him. He said, "My wife can make the best chocolate cake of anyone I know. I thought one day that I would go into the kitchen to see what wonderful ingredients she put into the batter. First she sifted out some flour -- this did not appeal to me at all, for it was dry and unappetizing. Then she put in some sour milk -- I certainly would not want to partake of that by itself, for it would have turned my stomach. Then to make maters worse, she threw into the whole untasty mess of ingredients a raw egg! By this time I was not too sure whether I liked chocolate cake or not. I left just as she was popping it into the oven. To my surprise, that evening her 'masterpiece' was as delicious as any I had ever had before! I saw in the whole thing a parable. In this life we often experience many dry stretches (like the flour) which are tasteless and uninviting; we also have sour experiences (like the milk; and even a few raw deals (like the egg), but after we have gone through the furnace of affliction (the oven), praise God -- reverently speaking -- it will all be chocolate cake over there!"


I have never forgotten that illustration, for it was certainly Scriptural. (See our text, and also Rom. 8:18.) Each thing as it comes may seem undesirable and uninviting, but when it is mixed together with the love and providence of God it works for our eternal good. In that assurance may we continue courageously onward with our eyes fixed on Jesus, and with our wills resigned to His precious leading. As Christians we may rest assured that the words of the old catechism are comfortingly true: "God in love averts all evil, or otherwise turns it to our profit!" --H.G.B.


Thus calmly, Lord, on Thee we rest;
No fears our trust shall move;
Then knowest what for each is best,
And Thou art perfect Love.

CHOICE GLEANINGS WEDNESDAY, JULY 18, 2018


DAILY READINGS: Judg. 11:29-12:15; Isa. 32:1-20; 1 Cor. 10:14-11:1


Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane.
Matthew 26:36


Have you ever compared the conflicts in the two gardens, in Eden and Gethsemane? In Eden, faced with temptation, man disobeyed God’s Word, and died because he had sinned against God. In Gethsemane, faced with an unparalleled trial, Jesus obeyed God’s will; and in so doing suffered and died to save us from the consequences of that first failure in Eden. Now God can justify His love for man to offer him eternal life because a sinless substitute has borne sin’s judgement for man. Do you believe this? —K. C. Ung


Gethsemane can I forget? Or there Thy conflict see,
Thine agony, and blood-like sweat, and not remember Thee?
—James Montgomery


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 1John 2:1b


I have gone to court a number of times for men with whom we were working in jail. Standing beside the accused will be his attorney, his advocate. His work is to represent and to plead for his client. A good attorney is a tremendous blessing. As believers there are times when we may fail' we sin. The devil is quick to pounce on that weakness and to accuse us before the Judge of all the earth. But, thank God, Christ rises on our behalf in our defense. His pleading is always effective; He has never lost a case. We rejoice at the intercessory work of our Saviour. --Donald Norbie


Five dreadful wounds He bears, received on Calvary.
They pour effectual prayers; they strongly plead for me. --Charles Wesley
