  • The Bewildering Call of God
    on August 5, 2021 at 5:00 am

    "…and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of Man will be accomplished."…But they understood none of these things… —Luke 18:31, 34God called Jesus Christ to what seemed absolute disaster. And Jesus Christ called His disciples to see Him put to death, leading every one of them to the place where their hearts were broken. His life was an absolute failure from every standpoint except God’s. But what seemed to be…

  • The Brave Friendship of God

    He took the twelve aside… —Luke 18:31Oh, the bravery of God in trusting us! Do you say, “But He has been unwise to choose me, because there is nothing good in me and I have no value”? That is exactly why He chose you. As long as you think that you are of value to Him…

  • The Compelling Purpose of God

    He…said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem…" —Luke 18:31Jerusalem, in the life of our Lord, represents the place where He reached the culmination of His Father’s will. Jesus said, “I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me” (John 5:30). Seeking to do “the will of the Father” was the one…

  • The Teaching of Adversity

    In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. —John 16:33The typical view of the Christian life is that it means being delivered from all adversity. But it actually means being delivered in adversity, which is something very different. “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. No evil shall…

  • Learning About His Ways
    on August 1, 2021 at 5:00 am

    When Jesus finished commanding His twelve disciples…He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities. —Matthew 11:1He comes where He commands us to leave. If you stayed home when God told you to go because you were so concerned about your own people there, then you actually robbed them of the teaching of Jesus Christ Himself. When you obeyed and left all the consequences to God, the…

  • Becoming Entirely His
    on July 31, 2021 at 5:00 am

    Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. —James 1:4Many of us appear to be all right in general, but there are still some areas in which we are careless and lazy; it is not a matter of sin, but the remnants of our carnal life that tend to make us careless. Carelessness is an insult to the Holy…

  • The Teaching of Disillusionment
    on July 30, 2021 at 5:00 am

    Jesus did not commit Himself to them…, for He knew what was in man. —John 2:24-25Disillusionment means having no more misconceptions, false impressions, and false judgments in life; it means being free from these deceptions. However, though no longer deceived, our experience of disillusionment may actually leave us cynical and overly critical in our judgment of others. But the disillusionment that comes from God brings…
