  • The Place of Humiliation October 2, 2022
    If You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us. —Mark 9:22After every time of exaltation, we are brought down with a sudden rush into things as they really are, where it is neither beautiful, poetic, nor thrilling. The height of the mountaintop is measured by the dismal drudgery of the valley, but […]
  • The Place of Exaltation October 1, 2022
    …Jesus took…them up on a high mountain apart by themselves… —Mark 9:2We have all experienced times of exaltation on the mountain, when we have seen things from God’s perspective and have wanted to stay there. But God will never allow us to stay there. The true test of our spiritual life is in exhibiting the […]
  • The Assigning of the Call September 30, 2022
    I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church… —Colossians 1:24We take our own spiritual consecration and try to make it into a call of God, but when we get right with […]
  • The Awareness of the Call September 29, 2022
    …for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel! —1 Corinthians 9:16We are inclined to forget the deeply spiritual and supernatural touch of God. If you are able to tell exactly where you were when you received the call of God and can explain all about it, […]
  • The “Go” of Unconditional Identification September 28, 2022
    Jesus…said to him, "One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor…and come, take up the cross, and follow Me." —Mark 10:21 The rich young ruler had the controlling passion to be perfect. When he saw Jesus Christ, he wanted to be like Him. Our Lord never places anyone’s […]
  • The “Go” of Renunciation September 27, 2022
    …someone said to Him, "Lord, I will follow You wherever You go." —Luke 9:57 Our Lord’s attitude toward this man was one of severe discouragement, “for He knew what was in man” (John 2:25). We would have said, “I can’t imagine why He lost the opportunity of winning that man! Imagine being so cold to him and […]
  • The “Go” of Reconciliation September 26, 2022
    If you…remember that your brother has something against you… —Matthew 5:23This verse says, “If you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you….” It is not saying, “If you search and find something because of your unbalanced sensitivity,” but, “If you…remember….” In other words, if something is […]
  • The “Go” of Relationship September 25, 2022
    Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. —Matthew 5:41 Our Lord’s teaching can be summed up in this: the relationship that He demands for us is an impossible one unless He has done a supernatural work in us. Jesus Christ demands that His disciple does not allow even the slightest trace of […]
  • The “Go” of Preparation September 24, 2022
    If you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. —Matthew 5:23-24 It is easy for us to imagine that we will suddenly come […]
  • The Missionary’s Goal September 23, 2022
    He…said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem…" —Luke 18:31In our natural life our ambitions change as we grow, but in the Christian life the goal is given at the very beginning, and the beginning and the end are exactly the same, namely, our Lord Himself. We start with Christ and we end […]
