A NEW SONG - Monthly Devotion

 FEBRUARY 2022                      

Pastor Salem’s desire was to tell the world of the saving grace of Jesus Christ and to encourage believers in their faith.  It is our hope this classic New Song Bible Study from the writings of Pastor Salem will be a blessing to you.

  DEVOTIONAL BIBLE STUDY: “JESUS, MY FRIEND”

 Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

“There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.”  Proverbs 18:24b

Here Solomon is writing about a Friend—and you know what, I know that Friend!  He is the One who said, “No longer do I call you servants…I have called you friends.”  (John 15:15).  Let me tell you about My Friend:

  • MY FRIEND LOVES ME. Can you imagine it?  He loves me so much He gave His life for me on a cruel, Roman cross.  I have had a lot of friends, but none that loved me that much.  There are a lot of things in the Bible that surprise me, but the one that surprises me the most, is that Jesus loves me!  In spite of all my sin and waywardness, He love me.  He’s my Friend!  (John 3:16; I Peter 2:24).
  • MY FRIEND IS FAITHFUL TO ME. For over 87 years now He has never failed me a single time.  Oh, sadly to say, I have failed Him over and over but my wonderful Friend never fails me.  I can always count on Him, lean on Him, depend on Him.  Sometimes when I wonder if He hears my prayers, or if I wonder if He knows how I hurt—well, I don’t wonder long because in my heart of hearts I know He is beside me, better yet, within me.  What a faithful friend He is!  (Hebrews 13:5).
  • MY FRIEND IS ALWAYS TRUE TO ME. Many friends just tell us what we want to hear—but not my Friend, He tells me like it is.  If there is something I want to do, and I know it is wrong—my Friend tells me right out, it is not pleasing to Him.  And, you know something else, He keeps telling me that, keeps convicting me, until I change my way.  He is honest and true to me.  And something else, when I listen to Him, He quietly says, “well done”.  (John 15:15; Romans 8:35-39).
  • MY FRIEND IS EVER SO TENDER. He cares for me and never gives me more than I can bear.  Sometimes it seems I can hear Him whisper, “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.”  (John 16:12).  Oh, He allows me to have some burdens and trials and sorrows, but He never gives me too many!  He knows me better than I know myself so He gives me only what I can carry.  Tenderly He adjusts my load so it is just right.  (Matthew 11:28-30; I Peter 5:7).
  • MY FRIEND IS STRONG. You know what?  He is stronger than Satan!  And Satan is strong, believe you me, but Satan is no match for my Friend Jesus!  My Friend said, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth”.  (Matthew 28:18).  Jesus is going to demonstrate that power when He casts Satan into the lake of fire and brimstone!  (Revelation 20:10).  Today it looks like the devil is in the saddle, but fear not, my Friend is going to have the last word!  Read the book of Revelation!
  • MY FRIEND IS GENEROUS. He gives me all that I need, and much, much more—more than I deserve!  He shares with me ALL of His riches in glory, that is, the unsearchable riches in Christ reserved for us in heaven (I Peter 1:4,5).  Generous?  I should say so.  (Romans 8:17; Philippians 4:19).

I wonder if you know this Friend of mine.  Not know ABOUT Him, but know Him personally, experientially.  If not, just tell Him you are a sinner and ask Him to come into your heart and life—and He will.  (Revelation 3:20).

In our Savior’s love,

Pastor Salem

LETTERS FROM OUR VIEWERS

THANK YOU FOR WRITING…

Thank you for continuing to show Pastor Salem’s sermons on TV.  The people of this time need to hear the Gospel more than ever.  I appreciate how Pastor Salem always to it like it is.  His sermons are easy to understand, and I always learn something.  We need more pastors like him.

SOUTH CAROLINA

I have decided to follow Jesus and accept Him into my life.

KANSAS

Please send the Heart of a Shepherd DVD.  My wife and I would love to see it.  I was saved because of Pastor Salem.  I didn’t understand how to be save until Pastor made it so clear and simple.

NEVADA

I just happened upon your program last year and had never heard of Christian Worship Hour or Pastor Salem.  After accidentally tuning in and listening to a few minutes, I recognized the CWH was bolt upright and I have watched even after hearing in early 2021 that Pastor Salem had gone home.  Please continue in the way you have been reaching the lost and lonely and may God continue to shed His Grace on you all.

TEXAS

I pray the Lord keeps CWH going.  I am blessed to listen anytime.  I tell others about CWH too.

MASSACHUSETTS

May God bless the wonderful people at CWH for your outreach to a hurting world.  May it continue for as long as it takes to bring Christ’s Word of love to every person.

MINNESOTA

Thank you for the encouragement that Pastor Salem gives to so many!!  No matter how bad things are in the world Pastor reminds us that this is all temporary and better life is just ahead.

TENNESSEE

I belonged to the same church for many years.  I felt empty.  I started watching Pastor Salem a few years ago.  He brought me closer to Jesus!  I know I am saved.  Thank you, all.

KANSAS

Sure miss Pastor Salem, but will enjoy the services still as it’s about the Bible and we need more of that, especially right now!  I will continue to watch as it’s the best service out there.  Thanks for the continuing Word of God!

NORTH DAKOTA

I want to thank Christian Worship Hour for your Sunday services and the New Song.  It helped me through the year of the pandemic and shut down.  Even though the service was taped, God’s Word is never old.  I am back to attending church.

SOUTH DAKOTA

You are a program that preaches the Bible without a show.  We are member of a local church but you feed our need much better.

FLORIDA

I “discovered” the Christian Worship Hour a couple years ago!  It has been such a help and blessing.  Pastor Salem helps me understand God, and our Christian faith.

MINNESOTA

We would like to express our deep appreciation for the teachings of Pastor Salem and his ministry.  He truly had a gift of presenting God’s Word with conviction, compassion, and sincerity.  We are thankful for him sharing his wisdom. May God continue to bless and use this ministry as a vessel to share God’s truth and continue to pass on Pastor Salem’s legacy of teachings and wisdom.
