  • “Not by Might nor by Power” December 3, 2021
    My speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power… —1 Corinthians 2:4If in preaching the gospel you substitute your knowledge of the way of salvation for confidence in the power of the gospel, you hinder people from getting to reality. Take care […]
  • Christian Perfection December 2, 2021
    Not that I have already attained, or am already perfect… —Philippians 3:12It is a trap to presume that God wants to make us perfect specimens of what He can do— God’s purpose is to make us one with Himself. The emphasis of holiness movements tends to be that God is producing specimens of holiness to […]
  • The Law and the Gospel December 1, 2021
    Whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. —James 2:10The moral law does not consider our weaknesses as human beings; in fact, it does not take into account our heredity or infirmities. It simply demands that we be absolutely moral. The moral law never changes, either […]
  • “By the Grace of God I Am What I Am” November 30, 2021
    By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain… —1 Corinthians 15:10The way we continually talk about our own inabilities is an insult to our Creator. To complain over our incompetence is to accuse God falsely of having overlooked us. Get into the habit of […]
  • The Supremacy of Jesus Christ November 29, 2021
    He will glorify Me… —John 16:14The holiness movements of today have none of the rugged reality of the New Testament about them. There is nothing about them that needs the death of Jesus Christ. All that is required is a pious atmosphere, prayer, and devotion. This type of experience is not supernatural nor miraculous. It…
  • The Riches of the Destitute November 28, 2021
    …being justified freely by His grace… —Romans 3:24The gospel of the grace of God awakens an intense longing in human souls and an equally intense resentment, because the truth that it reveals is not palatable or easy to swallow. There is a certain pride in people that causes them to give and give, but to […]
  • The Consecration of Spiritual Power November 27, 2021
    …by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. —Galatians 6:14If I dwell on the Cross of Christ, I do not simply become inwardly devout and solely interested in my own holiness— I become strongly focused on Jesus Christ’s interests. Our Lord was not a recluse nor a fanatical holy […]
  • The Focal Point of Spiritual Power November 26, 2021
    …except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ… —Galatians 6:14If you want to know the power of God (that is, the resurrection life of Jesus) in your human flesh, you must dwell on the tragedy of God. Break away from your personal concern over your own spiritual condition, and with a completely open spirit […]
  • The Secret of Spiritual Consistency November 25, 2021
    God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ… —Galatians 6:14When a person is newly born again, he seems inconsistent due to his unrelated emotions and the state of the external things or circumstances in his life. The apostle Paul had a strong and steady underlying consistency in his […]
  • Direction of Focus November 24, 2021
    Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters…, so our eyes look to the Lord our God… —Psalm 123:2This verse is a description of total reliance on God. Just as the eyes of a servant are riveted on his master, our eyes should be directed to and focused on God. […]
