The Forces of the Dark Side
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, and will bring swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their unrestrained ways, and because of them the way…(continue reading article)

"But I Say..." (Matthew 5:28/09)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5.27-28; all emphasis mine, above & below, jeb).

Honor
''Winging It' from Stan Smith

 We all know that the Bible commands, "Honor your father and your mother" (Exo 20:12). In fact, Paul points to this one in the New Testament to urge children to obey their parents (Eph 6:1-3), which would certainly indicate that this command is still in effect in the New Covenant. Of course, almost immediately…(continue reading article)

Proverbs 15:21 - Folly is joy to him who lacks sense, But a man of understanding walks straight.
Words to Ponder
In the midst of Paradise with all its wondrous beauty, if God Himself had not come and walked with Adam in the cool of the day it would not have been a very happy place, for unfallen man's delights was in God Himself. His gifts would not supply His place. We have lost Paradise, but we have not lost the Lord. We have got back our joy, though we have not yet got back Paradise. We can find all that will make us happy in Him. It is meeting with the Lord personally, face to face, that gives rest. The blood gives the conscience rest, but the heart craves something more, and that is fellowship with Him who gave us that atoning blood and sprinkled it on our souls. - Andrew Bonar (1810-92)

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Discipline Of Spiritual Tenacity

Tenacity is more than endurance, it is endurance combined with the absolute certainty that what we are looking for is going to transpire. Tenacity is more than hanging on, which may be but the weakness of being too afraid to fall off. Tenacity is the supreme effort of a man refusing to believe that his hero is going to…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for November 9

"So walk ye in him." - Colossians 2:6 If we have received Christ himself in our inmost hearts, our new life will manifest its intimate acquaintance with him by a walk of faith in him. Walking implies action. Our religion is not to be confined to our closet; we must carry out into practical effect that which…… — (click here to read more)

What man is he that feareth the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single thy whole body shall be full of light. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. — Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Past Deliverance Begets Faith

"David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, He will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine."   1 Samuel 17:37 This is not a promise if we consider only the words, but it is truly so as to its sense; for David spoke a word which the LORD endorsed by making it true. He argued from… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Shevat 26'

Learning without doing can be dangerous. Do you say, "First I will learn what the right thing is, then I will do it"? Or do you say, "Learning includes doing; I cannot really learn without putting what I have learned into practice"? Here, the Scripture tells us that one will go astray morally if musar (discipline) is overlooked. This is sobering! Rabbi… — (click here to read more)

Sport Fishing Christianity

Fishermen and golfers in churches have been arguing for some time concerning which group Jesus would hang out with were He here today.

There is a small problem with that concept…… — (click here to read more)

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
No blemish in God

We turn now to focus on an aspect of God's character which for some reason many see as a blotch or blemish in the divine nature. I refer to the matter of God's wrath. Though the subject may be missing from many modern-day pulpits, it is not missing from the Bible. If you look up in a Bible concordance all the texts…… — (click here to read more)

Help

Help - In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word azar is used principally of military assistance. There are numerous passages where the word is used in the context of a real military battle, for example, when Egypt and her allies fall (Ezekiel 30:8).

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — February 22

Our heavenly Father disciplines us for our own good, "that we may share in His holiness." God's motives are always loving! I have known people who seemed to be terrified by God's loving desire that we should reflect His own holiness and goodness. As God's faithful children, we should be attracted to holiness, for holiness Godlikeness-likeness… … — (click here to read more)

Who loved me. - Galatians 2:20

Who loved me. - Galatians 2:20

And what was Paul? A blasphemer, a persecutor, one who injured the church of God. And did Jesus love Paul? Yes: "He loved me." Then the love of Jesus is free, and not on account of anything man is.

The cause of love is in God, not in the objects loved. You may have looked for some reason to conclude…
