  • “It Is the Lord!” January 18, 2018
    Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!" —John 20:28“Jesus said to her, ‘Give Me a drink’ ” (John 4:7). How many of us are expecting Jesus Christ to quench our thirst when we should be satisfying Him! We should be pouring out our lives, investing our total beings, not drawing on […]
  • The Call of the Natural Life January 17, 2018
    When it pleased God…to reveal His Son in me… —Galatians 1:15-16The call of God is not a call to serve Him in any particular way. My contact with the nature of God will shape my understanding of His call and will help me realize what I truly desire to do for Him. The call of […]
  • The Voice of the Nature of God January 16, 2018
    I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" —Isaiah 6:8When we talk about the call of God, we often forget the most important thing, namely, the nature of Him who calls. There are many things calling each of us today. Some of these calls will […]
  • Do You Walk In White? January 15, 2018
    We were buried with Him…that just as Christ was raised from the dead…even so we also should walk in newness of life. —Romans 6:4No one experiences complete sanctification without going through a “white funeral” — the burial of the old life. If there has never been this crucial moment of change through death, sanctification will […]
  • Called By God January 14, 2018
    I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me." —Isaiah 6:8God did not direct His call to Isaiah— Isaiah overheard God saying, “…who will go for Us?” The call of God is not just for a select few […]
  • Have You Ever Been Alone with God? (2) January 13, 2018
    When He was alone…the twelve asked Him about the parable. —Mark 4:10His Solitude with Us. When God gets us alone through suffering, heartbreak, temptation, disappointment, sickness, or by thwarted desires, a broken friendship, or a new friendship— when He gets us absolutely alone, and we are totally speechless, unable to ask even one question, then […]
  • Have You Ever Been Alone with God? (1) January 12, 2018
    When they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples. —Mark 4:34Our Solitude with Him. Jesus doesn’t take us aside and explain things to us all the time; He explains things to us as we are able to understand them. The lives of others are examples for us, but God requires us to examine […]
  • What My Obedience to God Costs Other People January 11, 2018
    As they led Him away, they laid hold of a certain man, Simon…, and on him they laid the cross that he might bear it after Jesus. —Luke 23:26If we obey God, it is going to cost other people more than it costs us, and that is where the pain begins. If we are in […]
  • The Opened Sight January 10, 2018
    I now send you, to open their eyes…that they may receive forgiveness of sins… —Acts 26:17-18This verse is the greatest example of the true essence of the message of a disciple of Jesus Christ in all of the New Testament. God’s first sovereign work of grace is summed up in the words, “…that they may […]
  • Prayerful Inner-Searching January 9, 2018
    May your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless… —1 Thessalonians 5:23“Your whole spirit….” The great, mysterious work of the Holy Spirit is in the deep recesses of our being which we cannot reach. Read Psalm 139. The psalmist implies— “O Lord, You are the God of the early mornings, the God of the late […]
