  • The Concept of Divine Control July 16, 2018
    …how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! —Matthew 7:11Jesus is laying down the rules of conduct in this passage for those people who have His Spirit. He urges us to keep our minds filled with the concept of God’s control over everything, which means […]
  • My Life’s Spiritual Honor and Duty July 15, 2018
    I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians… —Romans 1:14Paul was overwhelmed with the sense of his indebtedness to Jesus Christ, and he spent his life to express it. The greatest inspiration in Paul’s life was his view of Jesus Christ as his spiritual creditor. Do I feel that same sense of indebtedness […]
  • Suffering Afflictions and Going the Second Mile July 14, 2018
    I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. —Matthew 5:39This verse reveals the humiliation of being a Christian. In the natural realm, if a person does not hit back, it is because he is a coward. But in the spiritual […]
  • The Price of the Vision July 13, 2018
    In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord… —Isaiah 6:1Our soul’s personal history with God is often an account of the death of our heroes. Over and over again God has to remove our friends to put Himself in their place, and that is when we falter, fail, and become discouraged. Let […]
  • The Spiritually Self-Seeking Church July 12, 2018
    …till we all come…to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ… —Ephesians 4:13Reconciliation means the restoring of the relationship between the entire human race and God, putting it back to what God designed it to be. This is what Jesus Christ did in redemption. The church ceases to be spiritual when it […]
  • The Spiritually Vigorous Saint July 11, 2018
    …that I may know Him… —Philippians 3:10A saint is not to take the initiative toward self-realization, but toward knowing Jesus Christ. A spiritually vigorous saint never believes that his circumstances simply happen at random, nor does he ever think of his life as being divided into the secular and the sacred. He sees every situation […]
  • The Spiritually Lazy Saint July 10, 2018
    Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together… —Hebrews 10:24-25We are all capable of being spiritually lazy saints. We want to stay off the rough roads of life, and our primary objective is to secure a peaceful retreat from the world. The […]
  • Will You Examine Yourself? July 9, 2018
    Joshua said to the people, "You cannot serve the Lord…" —Joshua 24:19Do you have even the slightest reliance on anything or anyone other than God? Is there a remnant of reliance left on any natural quality within you, or on any particular set of circumstances? Are you relying on yourself in any manner whatsoever regarding […]
  • Will To Be Faithful July 8, 2018
    …choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… —Joshua 24:15A person’s will is embodied in the actions of the whole person. I cannot give up my will— I must exercise it, putting it into action. I must will to obey, and I must will to receive God’s Spirit. When God gives me a vision […]
  • All Efforts of Worth and Excellence Are Difficult July 7, 2018
    Enter by the narrow gate….Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life…. —Matthew 7:13-14If we are going to live as disciples of Jesus, we have to remember that all efforts of worth and excellence are difficult.  The Christian life is gloriously difficult, but its difficulty does not make us […]
