  • Is God’s Will My Will? October 20, 2018
    This is the will of God, your sanctification… —1 Thessalonians 4:3Sanctification is not a question of whether God is willing to sanctify me— is it my will? Am I willing to let God do in me everything that has been made possible through the atonement of the Cross of Christ? Am I willing to let […]
  • The Unheeded Secret October 19, 2018
    Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world." —John 18:36The great enemy of the Lord Jesus Christ today is the idea of practical work that has no basis in the New Testament but comes from the systems of the world. This work insists upon endless energy and activities, but no private life with God. […]
  • The Key to the Missionary’s Devotion October 18, 2018
    …they went forth for His name’s sake… —3 John 7Our Lord told us how our love for Him is to exhibit itself when He asked, “Do you love Me?” (John 21:17). And then He said, “Feed My sheep.” In effect, He said, “Identify yourself with My interests in other people,” not, “Identify Me with your […]
  • The Key of the Greater Work October 17, 2018
    …I say to you, he who believes in Me,…greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. —John 14:12Prayer does not equip us for greater works— prayer is the greater work. Yet we think of prayer as some commonsense exercise of our higher powers that simply prepares us for God’s work. […]
  • The Key to the Master’s Orders October 16, 2018
    Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. —Matthew 9:38The key to the missionary’s difficult task is in the hand of God, and that key is prayer, not work— that is, not work as the word is commonly used today, which often results in the shifting of our focus away […]
  • The Key to the Missionary’s Message October 15, 2018
    He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. —1 John 2:2The key to the missionary’s message is the propitiation of Christ Jesus— His sacrifice for us that completely satisfied the wrath of God. Look at any other aspect of Christ’s work, whether it is […]
  • The Key to the Missionary’s Work October 14, 2018
    Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…" —Matthew 28:18-19The key to the missionary’s work is the authority of Jesus Christ, not the needs of the lost. We are inclined to look on our Lord […]
  • Individual Discouragement and Personal Growth October 13, 2018
    …when Moses was grown…he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. —Exodus 2:11Moses saw the oppression of his people and felt certain that he was the one to deliver them, and in the righteous indignation of his own spirit he started to right their wrongs. After he launched his first strike for […]
  • Getting into God’s Stride October 12, 2018
    Enoch walked with God… —Genesis 5:24The true test of a person’s spiritual life and character is not what he does in the extraordinary moments of life, but what he does during the ordinary times when there is nothing tremendous or exciting happening. A person’s worth is revealed in his attitude toward the ordinary things of…
  • God’s Silence— Then What? October 11, 2018
    When He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was. —John 11:6Has God trusted you with His silence— a silence that has great meaning? God’s silences are actually His answers. Just think of those days of absolute silence in the home at Bethany! Is there anything comparable […]
