November 23, 2014
If you refuse to give thanks in every situation, you are virtually saying that you know better than God how to run the universe. By giving thanks when we don’t feel like it, we are proclaiming that God’s wisdom is greater than ours.

Jesus taught us to pro-actively return good to those who have done us evil. For most of us, it will be all we can do not to smack someone in the face. To turn the other cheek is a truly supernatural act.

To all our questions, God replies, “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14). The answer is a Person, not an explanation. Someone may reply, “But that’s not enough. I want a real answer.” To which I reply, “If God himself is not enough, then no answer would ever satisfy you.”
November 8, 2014
All prayer is based on this simple truth: He runs the universe, we don’t. We pray because he’s in charge and we’re not.

"O may Thy soldiers, faithful, true and bold, Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old, And win with them the victor’s crown of gold. Alleluia, Alleluia!"

Coming to Christ is not difficult. You don’t have to have strong faith. You can have weak faith as long as it is resting upon a strong object. And who could be stronger than Jesus Christ Himself?

We shouldn't make excuses for Jesus. He said he came not to bring peace, but a sword. He is the great divider of humanity. We do him no favors when we water down his claims.

"Men who are strong are always men who are fixed somewhere, who have a conviction from which they cannot be separated by argument, which cannot be changed, whatever the circumstances in the midst of which they live. Sometimes these men are very narrow, but they are wonderfully strong; they are singularly obstinate, but they are splendidly dependable. Sometimes their convictions resolve themselves into two or three great fundamental truths, and they are never moved from them. Consequently, we always know where to find those men." G. Campbell Morgan

"Christ leads us through no darker rooms than he went through before, He that unto God's kingdom comes must enter by this door. Come Lord, when grace has made me meet, thy blessed 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, 1681
