Christian Towers of Babel
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

  …You will tell people about me everywhere…to the ends of the earth. (Ac. 1:8) When man was first created, he was given a command intended for each succeeding generation.

Here Am I! Send Me (Isaiah 6:8/09)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

Isaiah was not the first reluctant prophet; Moses had reservations about his qualifications too.

Proverbs 25:2 - It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
Words to Ponder
There is nothing so convenient and comforting as a sense of vagueness in connection with religion. As long as it is kept nebulous and indefinite, and as long as its followers can busy with various activities, they can persuade themselves that all is well with them. In the absence of clear, precise definitions no discomfort is caused. The more complicated the religion, the more accommodating and comfortable does it prove. There is nothing which is so disconcerting as a plain, direct gospel which, stripping away all mere decorations and embellishments, and ignoring all non-essentials and make-believes, exposes the naked soul and flashes onto it the light of God. How much easier it is to appreciate the ceremony and ritual, to indulge in high-sounding, idealistic generalities, and to be busy with philanthropic actions - how much more gratifying to the natural self are these than to face the simple direct questions of the Word of God. Idealists and humanists are rarely, if ever, persecuted. - Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981)

Daily Devotionals  for  March 1

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Undeviating Question

Peter declares nothing now (cf. Matthew 26:33-35). Natural individuality professes and declares; the love of the personality is only discovered by the hurt of the question of Jesus Christ. Peter loved Jesus in the way in which any natural man loves a good man. That is temperamental love; it may go deep into the individuality,…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Joy for the Cast-Out

"Hear the Word of the LORD, ye that tremble at His guard; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for My Name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but He shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed."   Isaiah 66:5 Possibly this text may not apply to one in a thousand of the readers of this little book of promises; but the LORD… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Adar 03'

This Scripture actually describes God's commandments in the singular (kol hamitzvah). The emphasis is not on following each one of God's instructions as separate or distinct parts.

Ya'akov (James)… — (click here to read more)

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life
Selective Forgetfulness

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
The consuming fire

George MacDonald writes: "Nothing is inexorable but love – For love loves unto purity. Love has ever in view the absolute loveliness of that which it beholds. Where loveliness is incomplete, and love cannot love its fill of loving, it spends itself to make more lovely, that it may love more; it strives for perfection…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Shield

Shield - In Hebrew magen. This word comes from a root that means "to defend". In its various forms, it can mean enclosure, garden, covering, to deliver up and shield. The root word is exclusively used in reference to God's protection, never to the protection of men or things. It isn't surprising that God would…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — March 1

When large numbers of adherents in the Christian churches come to believe that God is different from what He actually is, that concept becomes heresy of the most insidious and deadly kind! When the Christian church surrenders her once lofty concept of God and substitutes for it ideas so low, so ignoble as to be utterly unworthy, her situation is… … — (click here to read more)

"Thy Maker is thine Husband." Isaiah 54:5

SWEET assurance! Surprising condescension. Does Jesus, by whom all things were made, fill this sweet relation? Is He my nearest and dearest relative? Yes: He loves thee more than any other. He is more closely united to thee, and more deeply interested in thee. He is the Bridegroom, thou art…
