Some Of These Days — Frank L. Stanton

Some of these days all the skies will be brighter;
Some of these days all burdens will be lighter;
Hearts will be happier, souls will be whiter,
Some of these days!

Some of these days, in the deserts upspringing,
Fountains shall flash while the joy-bells are ringing;
And the world–with its sweetest of words–shall go on singing,
Some of these days!

Some of these days! Let us bear with our sorrow!
Faith in the future–its light we may borrow;
There will be joy in the golden tomorrow–
Some of these days!
Frank L. Stanton

I Know The Answer

“Who do people say that I am?” Mark 8:27 (NASB)
We must admit that people in our time hold many erroneous views regarding Jesus. It is important to have some knowledge of these views, so that we can correct them. For example, we may learn that someone holds the view that Jesus was no more than a great moral teacher. We must show that Jesus’ moral teachings cannot be separated from His divine authority (Matt. 7:28, 29). Other people regard Jesus as an ordinary, fallible human being. They deny the reality of His miracles, and they explain away the fact of His bodily resurrection. We must demonstrate to them that the Gospel writers are credible, dependable eyewitnesses. We can trust the writers when they describe Jesus’ healing the sick, raising the dead, and exercising power over nature. We can accept their testimony that they saw and heard Jesus after His death and resurrection.
“. . .sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.” 1 Peter 3:15 (NASB)
