  • The Glory That’s Unsurpassed April 2, 2020
    …the Lord Jesus…has sent me that you may receive your sight… —Acts 9:17When Paul received his sight, he also received spiritual insight into the Person of Jesus Christ. His entire life and preaching from that point on were totally consumed with nothing but Jesus Christ— “For I determined not to know anything among you except […]
  • Helpful or Heartless Toward Others? April 1, 2020
    It is Christ…who also makes intercession for us….the Spirit…makes intercession for the saints… —Romans 8:34, 27Do we need any more arguments than these to become intercessors– that Christ “always lives to make intercession” (Hebrews 7:25), and that the Holy Spirit “makes intercession for the saints”? Are we living in such a relationship with others that […]
  • Heedfulness or Hypocrisy in Ourselves? March 31, 2020
    If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. —1 John 5:16If we are not heedful and pay no attention to the way the Spirit of God works in us, we will […]
  • Holiness or Hardness Toward God? March 30, 2020
    He…wondered that there was no intercessor… —Isaiah 59:16The reason many of us stop praying and become hard toward God is that we only have an emotional interest in prayer. It sounds good to say that we pray, and we read books on prayer which tell us that prayer is beneficial— that our minds are quieted […]
  • Our Lord’s Surprise Visits March 29, 2020
    You also be ready… —Luke 12:40A Christian worker’s greatest need is a readiness to face Jesus Christ at any and every turn. This is not easy, no matter what our experience has been. This battle is not against sin, difficulties, or circumstances, but against being so absorbed in our service to Jesus Christ that we…
  • Isn’t There Some Misunderstanding? March 28, 2020
    "Let us go to Judea again." The disciples said to Him, "…are You going there again?" —John 11:7-8Just because I don’t understand what Jesus Christ says, I have no right to determine that He must be mistaken in what He says. That is a dangerous view, and it is never right to think that my […]
  • Spiritual Vision Through Personal Character March 27, 2020
    Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place… —Revelation 4:1A higher state of mind and spiritual vision can only be achieved through the higher practice of personal character. If you live up to the highest and best that you know in the outer level of your life, God will continually […]
  • Spiritual Vision Through Personal Purity March 26, 2020
    Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. —Matthew 5:8Purity is not innocence— it is much more than that. Purity is the result of continued spiritual harmony with God. We have to grow in purity. Our life with God may be right and our inner purity unblemished, yet occasionally our outer life […]
  • Maintaining the Proper Relationship March 25, 2020
    …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, 2020
    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 […]
