Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart,
be all else but naught to me, save that thou art;
be thou my best thought in the day and the night,
both waking and sleeping, thy presence my light.

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly!" Colossians 3:16

Probably prayer is less neglected in devotions, than is the reading of the Bible. Many people who would not go out any morning without a few

Peet van der Merwe  The leading He promises is not general, by long stretches--but by little steps. The Psalmist says, "Your Word is a lamp unto my feet." It is not said that prayer is the lamp--but the Word. We must carry it in our hand, too, as one carries a lantern to throw its beams about his feet.

Peet van der Merwe  We pray to be kept from sin, and in the Scriptures one says, "Your Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against You." Our prayers to be kept from sin, can be answered only by getting the Word of God into our heart!

Peet van der Merwe  These are suggestions of the necessity of reading the Bible daily, as well as of praying. Neither is complete in itself alone. We must talk to God--but we must also listen to God talk to us through His Word. We must pray for blessings--but only through the divine words of Scripture, can these blessings come to us.

Beware of a morbid dwelling on self with its crosses and losses. Our blessings are always greater than our trials; and most assuredly always greater than we deserve!

"Everything outside of Hell is mercy!"

If you would know whether your religion is real, try it by the feelings toward CHRIST which it produces. Nominal religion may believe that such a person as Christ existed, and was a great benefactor to mankind. It may show Him some external respect, attend His outward ordinances, and bow the head at His name. But it will go no further.

Peet van der Merwe’s Words of Inspiration
If you would know whether your religion is real — try it by the feelings towards SIN which it produces. The Christianity which is from the Holy Spirit, will always have a very deep view of the sinfulness of sin. It will not merely regard sin as a blemish and misfortune, which makes men and women objects of pity and compassion. It will see

Let me supply some TESTS by which we may try the reality of our religion.

We who profess and hold the precious faith of Christ in truth, do we also make Him our all in all? By our tongue He may be heard, but in our lives and deeds, is He to be found? As Saviour many will own Him, but as Lord few do know Him. Almost anything shall come before Him. Too many desire a hound, or flower in the garden, a new suit or

Let it never be forgotten that the chief object of a minister of the Gospel is to set forward the salvation of souls. I lay it down as a certain fact that he is no true minister who does not feel this. Talk not of a man's ordination! All may have been done correctly, and according to rule. He may wear a black coat, and be called a

Peet van der Merwe  Tell them all this and see these mega chuches emptied. Many people today, like the prodigal son proclaim to believe in Jesus Christ and think they can take from the Father’s house what belong to them and foolishly can go and spent and waste and enjoy that in this world, and there in the world they gather unto them friends and ministers that feed them with what they want to hear, that would rather encourage them to get more of that gifts and stay in the world and enjoy them.

Peet van der Merwe’s Words of Inspiration
Heaven is the place to which all people hope to go after they die. It would be well for many if they considered calmly what kind of dwelling-place heaven is. It is the habitation of the King of kings, who is "of purer eyes than to behold iniquity," and it must therefore be a holy place. It is a place into which Scripture tells us

Peet van der Merwe  There is much use made in the present day of the word "holy." Our ears are wearied with "holy church," and "holy baptism," and "holy days," and "holy water," and" holy services," and "holy priests." But one thing is a thousand times more important—and that is, to be made a really holy man by the Spirit. We must be made partakers of the Divine nature, while we are alive. We must "sow to the Spirit," if we would ever reap life everlasting. (2 Peter 1:4; Gal. 6:8.)

Peet van der Merwe  Yes—what then? You may well ask. Where will you flee? Which way will you turn? To what refuge will you run? There is none at all. There remains nothing but hell. Not admitted into heaven--you must sink at last into hell.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Peet van der Merwe  Many lay claim on heaven (salvation) because of their confession or faith. They put more faith in their confession and their own faith than in Christ. I have no faith in my faith only faith in Jesus Christ. I put no trust in my confession, I only trust in the one whom I confess to be Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Today people are raised on this: If you believe in Jesus Christ you can be born again ! That's like telling a dead person if he or she will start breathing they will come alive.
