“Our citizenship is in heaven” (Philippians 3:20). “Christians must constantly remember that we live here, but don’t belong here.” Don Carson
The more you encourage others, the more you are encouraged. Like the miracle of the loaves and fish, the more you give, the more you have. By giving encouragement to a fellow traveler, the spigot of God’s blessings is opened to you. So far from running out, before long you are running over with God’s […]
A cartoon from the Wall Street Journal shows a man walking up a set of stairs toward the gate of heaven. Above the gate is a sign with two words: “No Deals.” This time the Journal got it absolutely right. God makes no deals when it comes to heaven. You either enter by way of […]
“The problem in America today is not the presence of darkness. It’s the absence of light.” Jason Benham
Love does not run away. Love doesn’t take the easy way out. Love runs toward the battle, not away from it.
How precious are a mother’s tears! There is no substance on earth more valuable than the tears of a godly mother. There are mothers and grandmothers who have prayed their children and their grandchildren to Christ. There are mothers and grandmothers who have seen their children in the “far country” of sin and have prayed […]
A friend told me about his struggles in yielding everything to God. He said that he envisions his life as a great ship with the Lord at the helm. But every so often he wants to tap God on the shoulder and say, “Are you sure you know what you’re doing?” Rest easy, child of […]
“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.” Winston Churchill
“He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him” (Psalm 126:6). I’m responsible to sow the seeds of truth faithfully, lovingly, repeatedly. I’m not responsible for how fast the harvest comes in. The timing of the harvest is not in my hands, but if I […]
Money is like manure. If you pile it up, it stinks. But if you spread it around, it can do a lot of good. What are you doing with the money God has given you?
“Stop trying to fix people. Point them to Jesus.” Caleb Kaltenbach
When the church is most like the world, it does the least good. The opposite is also true.
If God were to abandon us, then he would have to abandon his own Son because we are “in Christ.” But he will never abandon his Son, and he will never abandon us. We are as safe in Christ as we could possibly be.
“It was said of an old Puritan that ‘heaven was in him before he was in heaven.’ This is necessary for all of us; we must have heaven in us before we get into heaven. If we do not get to heaven before we die, we shall never get there afterward.” Charles Spurgeon
“You must be born again” (John 3:7). Since ignorance is not the cause of sin, knowing more is not the cure. Our greatest need is not education but regeneration.
“If we would have mercy, it must be through Christ. Out of Christ, no mercy is to be had. Mercy swims to us through Christ’s blood.” Thomas Watson
“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” John Bunyan
He who upholds the universe holds me in the palm of his hand.
God routinely puts us in impossible situations so we will discover over all again that we can’t but he can.
People ask, “Do you believe in divine healing?” That’s the only kind there is. It just comes in many different varieties.
“Put up with a few sins, and you will soon want a few more. Never play with fire. Never trifle with little sins.” J. C. Ryle
While reading the obituary of a certain great man, I came across this sentence: “He had the gift of getting things done.” That’s a worthy goal for all of us. May God help us to do what needs to be done today so we can sleep well tonight.
“Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray” (James 5:13). Many times we view prayer as the last resort when it ought to be the first resort. Prayer sometimes seems futile because we think we need to “do something.” Praying is fine, but how about if we bake a cake? Well, that’s fine too. But […]
“God will never bring you to the place where you no longer need him.” I heard a preacher say that, and it sounds exactly right to me. Sometimes we secretly (or not so secretly) wish we could be in a position where we weren’t so desperate. But if the choice is between self-sufficiency and desperation, […]
But if my faith never leads me to do things that make no sense to others, including my Christian friends, perhaps I’m playing it too safe.
