  • Sanctification (1) July 22, 2019
    This is the will of God, your sanctification… —1 Thessalonians 4:3The Death Side. In sanctification God has to deal with us on the death side as well as on the life side. Sanctification requires our coming to the place of death, but many of us spend so much time there that we become morbid. There […]
  • The Doorway to the Kingdom July 21, 2019
    Blessed are the poor in spirit… —Matthew 5:3Beware of thinking of our Lord as only a teacher. If Jesus Christ is only a teacher, then all He can do is frustrate me by setting a standard before me I cannot attain. What is the point of presenting me with such a lofty ideal if I […]
  • Dependent on God’s Presence July 20, 2019
    Those who wait on the Lord…shall walk and not faint. —Isaiah 40:31There is no thrill for us in walking, yet it is the test for all of our steady and enduring qualities. To “walk and not faint” is the highest stretch possible as a measure of strength. The word walk is used in the Bible […]
  • The Submission of the Believer July 19, 2019
    You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. —John 13:13Our Lord never insists on having authority over us. He never says, “You will submit to me.” No, He leaves us perfectly free to choose— so free, in fact, that we can spit in His face or we can put […]
  • The Mystery of Believing July 18, 2019
    He said, "Who are You, Lord?" —Acts 9:5Through the miracle of redemption, Saul of Tarsus was instantly changed from a strong-willed and forceful Pharisee into a humble and devoted bondservant of the Lord Jesus. There is nothing miraculous or mysterious about the things we can explain. We control what we are able to explain, consequently […]
  • The Miracle of Belief July 17, 2019
    My speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom… —1 Corinthians 2:4Paul was a scholar and an orator of the highest degree; he was not speaking here out of a deep sense of humility, but was saying that when he preached the gospel, he would veil the power of God if […]
  • The Concept of Divine Control July 16, 2019
    …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, 2019
    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, 2019
    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, 2019
    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 […]
