Called to Act
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

  He said to another person, “Come, be my disciple.” The man agreed, but he said, “Lord, first let me return home and bury my father.” Jesus replied, “Let those who are spiritually dead care for their own dead. Your duty is to go and preach the coming of the Kingdom of God.”…(continue reading article)

Walk as David Walked (1 Kings 9.4)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

“Go home… and tell them…”

Proverbs 27:13 - Take his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger; And for an adulterous woman hold him in pledge.
Words to Ponder
Almost every natural man that hears of hell, flatters himself that he shall escape it; he depends upon himself for his own security; he flatters himself in what he has done, in what he is now doing, or what he intends to do. Every one lays out matters in his own mind how he shall avoid damnation, and flatters himself that he contrives well for himself, and that his schemes shall not fail. They hear indeed that there are but few saved, and that the greater part of men that have heretofore are gone to hell; but each one imagines that he lays out matters better for his own escape than others have done. He does not intend to come to that place of torment; he says within himself, that he tends to take effectual care, and to order matters so for himself as not to fail. - Jonathan Edwards (1703-58)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Iyyar 03'

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Forgiven!

We must spend another day considering whether or not it is a condition of our salvation that we first forgive those who have sinned against us.

What, then, is Scripture getting at when it seems to encourage us to forgive…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — April 29

Mans nature indicates that he was created for three things: To think, to worship and to work. But thinking is not enough. Men are made to worship also, to bow down and adore in the presence of the Mystery inexpressible. Mans mind is not the top peak of his nature. Higher than his mind is his spirit, that something within him which can engage the… … — (click here to read more)

"But thou art rich." Revelation 2:9

REAL saints always feel themselves to be poor sinners. Many of God's people are really poor in reference to the things of time, for God hath chosen the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which He hath promised to them that love Him.
