  • Taking Possession of Our Own Soul May 20, 2019
    By your patience possess your souls. —Luke 21:19When a person is born again, there is a period of time when he does not have the same vitality in his thinking or reasoning that he previously had. We must learn to express this new life within us, which comes by forming the mind of Christ (see Philippians […]
  • Out of the Wreck I Rise May 19, 2019
    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? —Romans 8:35God does not keep His child immune from trouble; He promises, “I will be with him in trouble…” (Psalm 91:15). It doesn’t matter how real or intense the adversities may be; nothing can ever separate him from his relationship to God. “In all these things […]
  • Living Simply— Yet Focused May 18, 2019
    Look at the birds of the air….Consider the lilies of the field… —Matthew 6:26, 28“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin”— they simply are! Think of the sea, the air, the sun, the stars, and the moon— all of these simply are as well— yet what a ministry […]
  • His Ascension and Our Access May 17, 2019
    It came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. —Luke 24:51We have no experiences in our lives that correspond to the events in our Lord’s life after the transfiguration. From that moment forward His life was altogether substitutionary. Up to the time of the transfiguration, […]
  • The Habit of Recognizing God’s Provision May 16, 2019
    …you may be partakers of the divine nature… —2 Peter 1:4We are made “partakers of the divine nature,” receiving and sharing God’s own nature through His promises. Then we have to work that divine nature into our human nature by developing godly habits. The first habit to develop is the habit of recognizing God’s provision […]
  • The Habit of Rising to the Occasion May 15, 2019
    …that you may know what is the hope of His calling… —Ephesians 1:18Remember that you have been saved so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in your body (see 2 Corinthians 4:10). Direct the total energy of your powers so that you may achieve everything your election as a child of God provides; rise […]
  • The Habit of Enjoying Adversity May 14, 2019
    …that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. —2 Corinthians 4:10We have to develop godly habits to express what God’s grace has done in us. It is not just a question of being saved from hell, but of being saved so that “the life of Jesus also may be manifested in […]
  • The Habit of Keeping a Clear Conscience May 13, 2019
    …strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men. —Acts 24:16God’s commands to us are actually given to the life of His Son in us. Consequently, to our human nature in which God’s Son has been formed (see Galatians 4:19), His commands are difficult. But they become divinely easy once we obey. Conscience is […]
  • The Habit of Having No Habits May 12, 2019
    If these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful… —2 Peter 1:8When we first begin to form a habit, we are fully aware of it. There are times when we are aware of becoming virtuous and godly, but this awareness should only be a stage we quickly pass through as […]
  • “Love One Another” May 11, 2019
    …add to your…brotherly kindness love. —2 Peter 1:5, 7Love is an indefinite thing to most of us; we don’t know what we mean when we talk about love. Love is the loftiest preference of one person for another, and spiritually Jesus demands that this sovereign preference be for Himself (see Luke 14:26). Initially, when “the love […]
