The Cross
'Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life' from Tom Kelley

At the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida, is a replica of one of the most famous bridges in the world. It is not a model made to scale. No, this is the full sized copy of the real deal.

Proud to be an Eta
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

  "If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own.

Two Graces (1-14-11)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

Who needs help? The plain fact is: We all do! That was the principle behind God’s creation of woman, i.e. to be a helper suitable for man.

The strongest man and the strongest…(continue reading article)

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Consecration Of Spiritual Energy

If I brood on the Cross of Christ, I do not become a subjective pietist, interested in my own whiteness; I become dominantly concentrated on Jesus Christ's interests. Our Lord was not a recluse nor an ascetic, He did not cut Himself off from society, but He was inwardly disconnected all the time. He was not aloof, but He…… — (click here to read more)

"The love of the Lord." - Hosea 3:1 Believer, look back through all thine experience, and think of the way whereby the Lord thy God has led thee in the wilderness, and how he hath fed and clothed thee every day-how he hath borne with thine ill manners-how he hath put up with all thy murmurings, and all thy…… — (click here to read more)

Daily Light on the Daily Path
Morning / Evening Devotional — November 27

The glory which thou gavest me I have given them. I saw ... the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims.

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Rest in All Thy Goings

"And He said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest."   Exodus 33:14 Precious promise! LORD, enable me to appropriate it as all my own. We must go at certain times from our abode, for here we have no continuing city. It often happens that when we feel most at home in a place, we are suddenly called away from it. Here is the… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Kislev 05'

Being the runt of my neighborhood, I quickly had to learn how to survive and resist peer pressure. One day, the older kids concocted a test of courage for us younger boys. They challenged us to jump from the window of an old abandoned British military barrack in Camp Allenby. We all jumped successfully from the first floor onto a bed of sand. No one was… — (click here to read more)

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life
Just a Sneeze

Sneezing. No, you're not seeing things. That's the word. Sneezing. I was told one time that it is physically impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. Guess what? I don't want to try. The thought of all that pressure and then having my eyes open when it gets cut loose; well, I just don't want…… — (click here to read more)

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
"I Have Jesus Christ"

The Incarnation, we are saying, is one of the chief distinctives of the Christian faith. But there are some within the Church today who cast doubt on this and many other aspects of Christianity.

Marveled

Marveled - The Greek verb here is thaumazo. It means, "to be astonished, to marvel, to be amazed". My suggestion is that we should see this word in the strongest sense. His disciples return to find Jesus conversing with a woman alone. This was an unspeakable breach of social protocol. Furthermore, she was…… — (click here to read more)
