Jesus Never Fails

Many a times in my life, the words of this childhood hymn has been a tremendous encouragement. I pray this may encourage you too. Keep looking to Jesus!
Jesus never fails, Jesus never fails
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails.

Your mother will let you down
Your father will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails.

Your husband will let you down
Your wife will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

Your brothers will let you down
Your sisters-will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

Your church will let you down
Your work will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

Your friends will let you down
Your country will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

Your wealth will let you down
Your health will let you down
The man of the world will let you down, but Jesus never fails

  1. Hi Chola, My wife and I were expat teachers at Chikankata School from 1982-1985. We learned Jesus Never Fails from the students. Sometimes we would sing the song at chapel on Sunday mornings. The students would really sing out loudly when we came to the verse "Your teachers will let you down, your headmaster will let you down... ." :)
    The Lord taught me such an important lesson not to put my hope in man, but the Lord. I should not get upset and mad at God because people let me down. That will happen. But Jesus never fails. Allan Mitch

  4. I'd like to know what song this is from too. I've been searching for a certain version of this song (part of a Christian music medley from either the Caribbean or somewhere in Africa) that has this song in it but I can't find it online anywhere.

Pornography as Occultism

There is a kind of helplessness that a man engaged in pornography exhibits. He often speaks of it in terms of a “struggle” or an “addiction.” Now both of those terms are accurate, I believe, but they distance a person from his sin in a soul-decaying manner. Pornography is not just an addiction; it is occultism. The man who sits upstairs viewing pornography while his wife chauffeurs the kids to soccer practice is not some unusual “pervert”; he is (like his forefather Adam) seeking the mystery of the universe apart from Christ. That’s the reason the one picture, stored in his memory, of that naked woman will never be enough for him. He will never be able to be satisfied because he will never be able to get an image naked enough. I say pornography is occultism because I believe the draw toward it is more than biological (though that is strong). The satanic powers understand that “the sexually immoral person sins against his own body” (1 Cor. 6:18). They understand that the pornographic …

7 fascinating facts about Bexleyheath

I just finished reading Bexleyheath : A History by John Mercer as part of my effort to know a little about the history of our new local area. We have been living here for the last four months and it is a wonderful area indeed. Here are seven fascinating things about Bexleyheath mentioned in the book.

1. Two hundred years ago much of Bexley Heath was an area of wide-open land largely uncultivated. It was not until 1894, that the two words were put together.

2. On 5 June 1739, George Whitfield, a prominent preacher associated with John Wesley, came to the highway and preached by the pond opposite the Golden Lion. He was welcomed to the district by Henry Piers, Vicar of St Mary's (Bexley), who was a supporter of the new evangelical movement which was to become later known as the Methodist Church. Over 300 gathered to hear Whitfield preach from his horse: travellers, labourers, gypsies and villagers from Bexley village.
3. One of the early inhabitants of Bexlyheath was the polish emigre …
