“Your will be Done.” All spiritual growth begins with those four words.
“Oh, that old rugged Cross so despised by the world Has a wondrous attraction for me For the dear Lamb of God, left his Glory above To bear it to dark Calvary” “So I’ll cherish the old rugged Cross Till my trophies at last I lay down I will cling to the old rugged Cross […]
Rebuke goes both ways. Are we as willing to hear the truth as to tell the truth? Lord, make us open to the wisdom of others even when it hurts. Amen.
If people get mad when you tell them the truth, that doesn’t mean it’s not true. It just means they’re mad. That’s all.
Lord Jesus, make us sensitive to the promptings of your Spirit today. Make us quick to pray, quick to praise, and slow to criticize. Amen.
The question is not, “How big are my problems?” The question is always, “How big is my God?”
“He does not grow tired or weary” (Isaiah 40:28). God never says, “Take a number” or “Could you come back later?” He is never too tired to help us. He stays awake while we fall asleep. He never takes a nap. He is there when we need him. He never tires of helping his children. […]
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth” (Isaiah 40:28). That means he is all-powerful. No problem can be too great for him because he made the things that are causing you the problem. “Lord, can you handle it?” “Handle it? […]
“This is my Father’s world: Oh, let me ne’er forget That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet. This is my Father’s world, The battle is not done: Jesus who died shall be satisfied, And earth and Heav’n be one.”
Today is a great day to tell someone about Jesus.
“Just when I need Him, Jesus is strong, Bearing my burdens all the day long; For all my sorrow giving a song, Just when I need Him most.” William C. Poole, 1907
May God give us preachers with some backbone who won’t back down. God deliver us from politically correct sermons and preachers who preach everything but the Word of God.
Lord Jesus, deliver me from a complaining spirit when times are hard. Help me to remember that you’ve got plenty of manna and quail whenever I need it. Amen.
“I’m undone by the mercy of Jesus I’m undone by the goodness of the Lord I’m restored and made right He got a hold of my life I’ve got Jesus How could I want more.” From the song “I Got Saved” by Selah.
“Come, Lord, when grace hath made me meet Thy blessèd face to see; For if Thy work on earth be sweet What will Thy glory be!” “My knowledge of that life is small, The eye of faith is dim; But ’tis enough that Christ knows all, And I shall be with Him.” Richard Baxter, […]
Today is All Saints Day. It’s a day to remember the “communion of the saints” that joins us forever with our loved ones who are now with the Lord. Our Father has a huge family that spans the generations. Some of us are on earth, and some are in heaven. But whether on earth or […]
On this day five hundred years ago, Martin Luther nailed his famous 95 Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Though he only intended to stir up some theological debate, God in his wisdom used Luther to ignite the Protestant Reformation, which entailed recovering the gospel of the free grace of […]
“I have never once feared the devil, but I tremble every time I enter the pulpit.” John Knox
When God forgives, he removes our sins, he lifts them up, he takes them away, and he puts them so far away from us that we could never find them if we searched for them for a thousand years. They are gone forever.
“And when I think that God, his Son not sparing, Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in, That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin.” “Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee: How great thou art! How great thou art! Then […]
Anyone, Anywhere, Any time, Can be saved by Trusting in Christ. That’s the Good News of the Gospel.
“Was it for crimes that I had done He groaned upon the tree? Amazing pity! grace unknown! And love beyond degree!” Isaac Watts
The Reformers said we were saved by “alien righteousness.” The term alien means “from another place.” When I visit Uganda or China or Ukraine, I am an “alien” in those countries because I am from another place. We are saved by righteousness that comes “from another place.” It comes not from within us as a result […]
If I show up at the gates of heaven talking about how good I’ve been, I’m in real trouble. First of all, I haven’t been all that good. Too many sins come crowding into my memory, and those are only the ones I can remember. I testify that I am a sinner through and through; […]
“There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus, No, not one! No, not one! None else could heal all our soul’s diseases, No, not one! No, not one!” “Jesus knows all about our struggles, He will guide till the day is done; There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus, No, not one! No, not […]
