  • The Key of the Greater Work October 17, 2017
    …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, 2017
    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, 2017
    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, 2017
    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, 2017
    …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, 2017
    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, 2017
    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 […]
  • How Will I Know? October 10, 2017
    Jesus answered and said, "I thank You, Father…that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes." —Matthew 11:25We do not grow into a spiritual relationship step by step— we either have a relationship or we do not. God does not continue to cleanse us more and more […]
  • Building on the Atonement October 9, 2017
    …present…your members as instruments of righteousness to God. —Romans 6:13I cannot save and sanctify myself; I cannot make atonement for sin; I cannot redeem the world; I cannot right what is wrong, purify what is impure, or make holy what is unholy. That is all the sovereign work of God. Do I have faith in […]
  • Coming to Jesus October 8, 2017
    Come to Me… —Matthew 11:28Isn’t it humiliating to be told that we must come to Jesus! Think of the things about which we will not come to Jesus Christ. If you want to know how real you are, test yourself by these words— “Come to Me….” In every dimension in which you are not…
