  • Maintaining the Proper Relationship March 25, 2019
    …the friend of the bridegroom… —John 3:29Goodness and purity should never be traits that draw attention to themselves, but should simply be magnets that draw people to Jesus Christ. If my holiness is not drawing others to Him, it is not the right kind of holiness; it is only an influence which awakens undue emotions […]
  • Decreasing for His Purpose March 24, 2019
    He must increase, but I must decrease. —John 3:30If you become a necessity to someone else’s life, you are out of God’s will. As a servant, your primary responsibility is to be a “friend of the bridegroom” (John 3:29). When you see a person who is close to grasping the claims of Jesus Christ, you […]
  • Am I Carnally Minded? March 23, 2019
    Where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal…? —1 Corinthians 3:3The natural man, or unbeliever, knows nothing about carnality. The desires of the flesh warring against the Spirit, and the Spirit warring against the flesh, which began at rebirth, are what produce carnality and the awareness of it. But Paul […]
  • The Burning Heart March 22, 2019
    Did not our heart burn within us…? —Luke 24:32We need to learn this secret of the burning heart. Suddenly Jesus appears to us, fires are set ablaze, and we are given wonderful visions; but then we must learn to maintain the secret of the burning heart— a heart that can go through anything. It is […]
  • Identified or Simply Interested? March 21, 2019
    I have been crucified with Christ… —Galatians 2:20The inescapable spiritual need each of us has is the need to sign the death certificate of our sin nature. I must take my emotional opinions and intellectual beliefs and be willing to turn them into a moral verdict against the nature of sin; that is, against any […]
  • Friendship with God March 20, 2019
    Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing…? —Genesis 18:17The Delights of His Friendship. Genesis 18 brings out the delight of true friendship with God, as compared with simply feeling His presence occasionally in prayer. This friendship means being so intimately in touch with God that you never even need to ask Him to […]
  • Abraham’s Life of Faith March 19, 2019
    He went out, not knowing where he was going. —Hebrews 11:8In the Old Testament, a person’s relationship with God was seen by the degree of separation in that person’s life. This separation is exhibited in the life of Abraham by his separation from his country and his family. When we think of separation today, we […]
  • Will I Bring Myself Up to This Level? March 18, 2019
    …perfecting holiness in the fear of God. —2 Corinthians 7:1“Therefore, having these promises….” I claim God’s promises for my life and look to their fulfillment, and rightly so, but that shows only the human perspective on them. God’s perspective is that through His promises I will come to recognize His claim of ownership on me. […]
  • The Servant’s Primary Goal March 17, 2019
    We make it our aim…to be well pleasing to Him. —2 Corinthians 5:9“We make it our aim….” It requires a conscious decision and effort to keep our primary goal constantly in front of us. It means holding ourselves to the highest priority year in and year out; not making our first priority to win souls, […]
  • The Master Will Judge March 16, 2019
    We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ… —2 Corinthians 5:10Paul says that we must all, preachers and other people alike, “appear before the judgment seat of Christ.” But if you will learn here and now to live under the scrutiny of Christ’s pure light, your final judgment will bring you only delight […]
