  • The Missionary’s Predestined Purpose September 21, 2018
    Now the Lord says, who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant… —Isaiah 49:5The first thing that happens after we recognize our election by God in Christ Jesus is the destruction of our preconceived ideas, our narrow-minded thinking, and all of our other allegiances— we are turned solely into servants of God’s own […]
  • The Divine Commandment of Life September 20, 2018
    …be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. —Matthew 5:48Our Lord’s exhortation to us in Matthew 5:38-48 is to be generous in our behavior toward everyone. Beware of living according to your natural affections in your spiritual life. Everyone has natural affections— some people we like and others we don’t like. Yet we must never […]
  • Are You Going on With Jesus? September 19, 2018
    You are those who have continued with Me in My trials. —Luke 22:28It is true that Jesus Christ is with us through our temptations, but are we going on with Him through His temptations? Many of us turn back from going on with Jesus from the very moment we have an experience of what He […]
  • His Temptation and Ours September 18, 2018
    We do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. —Hebrews 4:15Until we are born again, the only kind of temptation we understand is the kind mentioned in James 1:14, “Each one is tempted when he is drawn away by […]
  • Is There Good in Temptation? September 17, 2018
    No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man… —1 Corinthians 10:13The word temptation has come to mean something bad to us today, but we tend to use the word in the wrong way. Temptation itself is not sin; it is something we are bound to face simply by virtue of being […]
  • Praying to God in Secret September 16, 2018
    When you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place… —Matthew 6:6The primary thought in the area of religion is— keep your eyes on God, not on people. Your motivation should not be the desire to be known as a praying […]
  • What To Renounce September 15, 2018
    We have renounced the hidden things of shame…  —2 Corinthians 4:2Have you “renounced the hidden things of shame” in your life— the things that your sense of honor or pride will not allow to come into the light? You can easily hide them. Is there a thought in your heart about anyone that you would […]
  • Arguments or Obedience September 14, 2018
    …the simplicity that is in Christ.  —2 Corinthians 11:3Simplicity is the secret to seeing things clearly. A saint does not think clearly until a long time passes, but a saint ought to see clearly without any difficulty. You cannot think through spiritual confusion to make things clear; to make things clear, you must obey. In […]
  • After Surrender— Then What? September 13, 2018
    I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. —John 17:4True surrender is not simply surrender of our external life but surrender of our will— and once that is done, surrender is complete. The greatest crisis we ever face is the surrender of our will. Yet God never forces a person’s will […]
  • Going Through Spiritual Confusion September 12, 2018
    Jesus answered and said, "You do not know what you ask." —Matthew 20:22There are times in your spiritual life when there is confusion, and the way out of it is not simply to say that you should not be confused. It is not a matter of right and wrong, but a matter of God taking […]
