THE CHRISTIAN WORSHIP HOUR Newsletter

“A NEW SONG”
August 2014 

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

Have you ever heard of the “BEES OF THE BIBLE?” There are a whole bunch of them! They never sting and they always yield honey to spare. These bees live in a hive so, where you find one you find many. Let me tell about them:

  • BEE KINDLY AFFECTIONED ONE TO ANOTHER. (Rom. 12:10). God tells us to be mindful of one another and to love our neighbor as ourselves! That’s a tall order, but God will enable us to live that way if we submit to Him and the leadership of His Spirit. Let’s find ways to show our love and kindness to those about us. Someone may have an aching, breaking heart and we would never guess it. One old pastor said, “If you’re not very kind, you’re not very spiritual.”
  • BEE SOBER AND WATCH UNTO PRAYER. (1 Peter 4:7). To be sober means to be earnest, sincere, from the bottom of our heart. No pretend stuff, but sincerely praying for others from our very heart. I venture to say that every one of us knows someone going through some tough times – and they need our love and prayers.
  • BEE CONTENT WITH SUCH THINGS AS YE HAVE. (Phil. 4:11). When does a rich man have enough? Never. He is always grasping for more. Not so the child of God. If he has much, he liberally gives much for the cause of Christ. If he has little, he rejoices in that he has eternal life and enough food for supper. Did you know that we could live on bread and water? Anything else is bonus!
  • BEE STRONG IN THE LORD. (Eph.6:10). I guess we all want that strength in our faith and love for Jesus, our Lord. The question is, how do we get this strength? We get it several ways, like reading our Bible and meditating on its words. God will speak to us as we listen to His Word. Also, His Holy Spirit reveals His will to us as we meditate on God’s Word, be quiet and let it permeate our heart and soul. We can all be strong. (Phil. 4:13).
  • BEE COURTEOUS. (1 Peter 3:8). Some Christians grump around like an old bear. Those are the kind you like to loan money, and then you never see them again! God is telling us to be kind to one another, courteous, humble, and considerate. God tells us that “a soft answer turneth away wrath” (Prov. 15:1). Be a peacemaker and pour oil on troubled waters. God will bless you, and others, for it.
  • BEE NOT WISE IN YOUR OWN CONCEITS. (Romans 12:16). Do you enjoy being around a “know it all?” No one does. A “know it all” does not like being around another know it all. The sad thing is that no one knows it all, so forget it. Instead, be humble and willing to listen to those about you – they may be carring a heavy burden and you can help them by listening – and then praying for them. (Matt. 11:28-30).
  • BEE FOLLOWERS OF GOD AS DEAR CHILDREN. (Eph. 5:1). The apostle is telling us, as children imitate their parents, so we, as God’s children, should imitate Him. A good question to ask is, “What would Jesus do?” Everything we do or say should be put to that test. The result will be that others will see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16).

So, why not join the “honey bee club” and be a blessing to yourself and to those about us. I am going to try harder!

I want to thank all of you for your PRAYERS. The keys to it all are the prayers of God’s people on behalf of this ministry. Some of you can’t get around very well – all the more time to pray! Did you know that prayer is more important than money? If we are undergirded with prayer, all the rest will come out, as God wants it.

Thanks for being a part of the team!

God Bless you. I'll be watching for you this week.

In our Savior’s love,



Harold E. Salem, pastor

Thank You for Writing...

“I watch your weekly devotionals on the Internet, but I first saw you while visiting in the US. I am a teacher, soon to retire, but I also worked for many years in the Norwegian (Lutheran) church. I just sent a Father’s Day memorial for my father who died in April at the age of 88. He watched your program every week with my mother, until he moved to a care center. She and I talk on the telephone often about your ministry and pray for all of you. I have wanted to send you money for several years, and now we are “Palls” through Paypal. Please don’t do any more break dance activities. We need you. Your friend in Christ… ”

ETNE, NORWAY

“My husband passed away almost 2 years ago and it has been ‘tuff’. Also I can’t afford as much money anymore, but I watch you every Sunday at 11:00 A.M.! We never missed you! We were married for 56 years! I pray for you guys as you have been a blessing to us for many years. Please pray for me! In Jesus’ Name I pray!”

MITCHELL, SOUTH DAKOTA

“I’m a 74 + year old man. I recently watched the Christian Worship Hour. As I listened to your message when you gave an invitation, I put my trust in Jesus Christ. Please send me the Billy Graham literature and any other materials that will help me. I’m on very limited income and unable to purchase a Bible as I don’t have one. If you know of any groups that provide free Bibles please send me this information. Thank you!”

CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS

“Pastor Salem & Staff: just a note to let you know how much your ministry is appreciated. I am a shut-in and thank God for every message reminds me of the scripture, when we get old we don’t retire we just get retreaded.”

RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA

“Last month the “New Song” really helped me deal with my health problem, I woke up from a bad dream and couldn’t get back to sleep so I got up and reached for my Bible, then I saw “a New Song” and read “Jesus is with me every day…I will not be afraid”, just reading that part and the verses really helped me so much that I was able to get back to sleep. I’m so thankful for this little devotional.”

MILWAUKEE, OREGON

“Your sermon on June 1, 2014 went straight to my heart, a message I have needed to hear for many years, related to the suicide of my son, 23 years old, which occurred in the late 1980’s. Your explanation was the best I have ever heard. Also, how God deals with all sins that one has. I always believed that some sins were not forgivable…”

TAVARES, FLORIDA

“Praise the Lord and pass me the remote. It’s time for Christian Worship Hour!”

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO

“All of your messages are good and I enjoy every one of them, in fact I have been making DVD’s of them and putting on the bulletin board at the Post Office and when it is gone I put another one in its place. I also put a note with it asking whoever takes them to past them on. God bless you and your team. May God give you many more years to continue His Work.”

ODESSA, WASHINGTON

“I know Jesus will never leave me, but I’m lonely (too shy).”

TURTLE LAKE, WISCONSIN

“I will be 97 on August the 26th, so I am still ahead of Dr. Salem. His messages are great and he has to be the last of the dying breed of angelicas that stand for the whole truth of the Bible. May he live to at least 100 years old.”

SPRING HILL, FLORIDA

“I am writing to you about my son that passed away 5 years ago. He was 43 years old. He got on drugs then got very run down and sick. He had something wrong with his mind and he was not as smart as the other children. He told me once that he prayed all the time. Do you think he went to Heaven? I certainly hope he did but I’m just not sure he was saved.”

JAMESTOWN, TENNESSEE
