  • Friendship with God March 20, 2018
    Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing…? —Genesis 18:17The Delights of His Friendship. Genesis 18 brings out the delight of true friendship with God, as compared with simply feeling His presence occasionally in prayer. This friendship means being so intimately in touch with God that you never even need to ask Him to […]
  • Abraham’s Life of Faith March 19, 2018
    He went out, not knowing where he was going. —Hebrews 11:8In the Old Testament, a person’s relationship with God was seen by the degree of separation in that person’s life. This separation is exhibited in the life of Abraham by his separation from his country and his family. When we think of separation today, we […]
  • Will I Bring Myself Up to This Level? March 18, 2018
    …perfecting holiness in the fear of God. —2 Corinthians 7:1“Therefore, having these promises….” I claim God’s promises for my life and look to their fulfillment, and rightly so, but that shows only the human perspective on them. God’s perspective is that through His promises I will come to recognize His claim of ownership on me. […]
  • The Servant’s Primary Goal March 17, 2018
    We make it our aim…to be well pleasing to Him. —2 Corinthians 5:9“We make it our aim….” It requires a conscious decision and effort to keep our primary goal constantly in front of us. It means holding ourselves to the highest priority year in and year out; not making our first priority to win souls, […]
  • The Master Will Judge March 16, 2018
    We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ… —2 Corinthians 5:10Paul says that we must all, preachers and other people alike, “appear before the judgment seat of Christ.” But if you will learn here and now to live under the scrutiny of Christ’s pure light, your final judgment will bring you only delight […]
  • The Discipline of Dismay March 15, 2018
    As they followed they were afraid. —Mark 10:32At the beginning of our life with Jesus Christ, we were sure we knew all there was to know about following Him. It was a delight to forsake everything else and to throw ourselves before Him in a fearless statement of love. But now we are not quite […]
  • Yielding March 14, 2018
    …you are that one’s slaves whom you obey… —Romans 6:16The first thing I must be willing to admit when I begin to examine what controls and dominates me is that I am the one responsible for having yielded myself to whatever it may be. If I am a slave to myself, I am to blame […]
  • God’s Total Surrender to Us March 13, 2018
    For God so loved the world that He gave… —John 3:16Salvation does not mean merely deliverance from sin or the experience of personal holiness. The salvation which comes from God means being completely delivered from myself, and being placed into perfect union with Him. When I think of my salvation experience, I think of being […]
  • Total Surrender March 12, 2018
    Peter began to say to Him, "See, we have left all and followed You." —Mark 10:28Our Lord replies to this statement of Peter by saying that this surrender is “for My sake and the gospel’s” (Mark 10:29). It was not for the purpose of what the disciples themselves would get out of it. Beware of […]
  • Obedience to the “Heavenly Vision” March 11, 2018
    I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision. —Acts 26:19If we lose “the heavenly vision” God has given us, we alone are responsible— not God. We lose the vision because of our own lack of spiritual growth. If we do not apply our beliefs about God to the issues of everyday life, the vision God […]
