  • “I Indeed. . . But He” August 22, 2017
    I indeed baptize you with water…but He…will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. —Matthew 3:11Have I ever come to the point in my life where I can say, “I indeed…but He…”? Until that moment comes, I will never know what the baptism of the Holy Spirit means. I indeed am at the end, […]
  • The Ministry of the Unnoticed August 21, 2017
    Blessed are the poor in spirit… —Matthew 5:3The New Testament notices things that do not seem worthy of notice by our standards. “Blessed are the poor in spirit….” This literally means, “Blessed are the paupers.” Paupers are remarkably commonplace! The preaching of today tends to point out a person’s strength of will or the beauty […]
  • Christ-Awareness August 20, 2017
    …and I will give you rest. —Matthew 11:28Whenever anything begins to disintegrate your life with Jesus Christ, turn to Him at once, asking Him to re-establish your rest. Never allow anything to remain in your life that is causing the unrest. Think of every detail of your life that is causing the disintegration as something […]
  • Self-Awareness August 19, 2017
    Come to Me… —Matthew 11:28God intends for us to live a well-rounded life in Christ Jesus, but there are times when that life is attacked from the outside. Then we tend to fall back into self-examination, a habit that we thought was gone. Self-awareness is the first thing that will upset the completeness of…
  • Have You Ever Been Speechless with Sorrow? August 18, 2017
    When he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich. —Luke 18:23The rich young ruler went away from Jesus speechless with sorrow, having nothing to say in response to Jesus’ words. He had no doubt about what Jesus had said or what it meant, and it produced in him a sorrow with […]
  • Are You Discouraged or Devoted? August 17, 2017
    …Jesus…said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have…and come, follow Me." But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich. —Luke 18:22-23Have you ever heard the Master say something very difficult to you? If you haven’t, I question whether you have ever heard Him say […]
  • Does He Know Me? August 16, 2017
    He calls his own…by name… —John 10:3When I have sadly misunderstood Him? (see John 20:11-18). It is possible to know all about doctrine and still not know Jesus. A person’s soul is in grave danger when the knowledge of doctrine surpasses Jesus, avoiding intimate touch with Him. Why was Mary weeping? Doctrine meant no more to […]
  • The Evidence of the New Birth August 15, 2017
    You must be born again. —John 3:7The answer to Nicodemus’ question, “How can a man be born when he is old?” is: Only when he is willing to die to everything in his life, including his rights, his virtues, and his religion, and becomes willing to receive into himself a new life that he has […]
  • The Discipline of the Lord August 14, 2017
    My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him. —Hebrews 12:5It is very easy to grieve the Spirit of God; we do it by despising the discipline of the Lord, or by becoming discouraged when He rebukes us. If our experience of being set apart […]
  • “Do Not Quench the Spirit” August 13, 2017
    Do not quench the Spirit. —1 Thessalonians 5:19The voice of the Spirit of God is as gentle as a summer breeze— so gentle that unless you are living in complete fellowship and oneness with God, you will never hear it. The sense of warning and restraint that the Spirit gives comes to us in the […]
