Signs and Wonders
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb, but he sounded like a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast on his behalf and compels the earth and those who live on it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. He also performs great signs, even…(continue reading article)

More Than Conquerors
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

  Yes, I admit I like racing; I watch grown men turn left at breakneck speed lap, after lap, after lap. Maybe its my alter ego that compels me to lose myself in such things. Many a race, in fact the most exciting races, has been won in a photo-finish. In the 1959 Daytona 500, it took NASCAR officials three days…(continue reading article)

Daily Wisdom
Proverbs 15:21 - Folly is joy to him who lacks sense, But a man of understanding walks straight.
Words to Ponder
One good man, one man who does not put on his religion once a week with his Sunday coat, but wears it for his working dress, and lets the thought of God grow into him, and through and through him, till everything he says and does becomes religious, that man is worth a thousand sermons -- he is a living Gospel -- he comes in the spirit and power of Elias -- he is the image of God. And men see his good works, and admire them in spite of themselves, and see that they are God-like, and that God's grace is no dream, but that the Holy Spirit is still among men, and that all nobleness and manliness is His gift, His stamp, His picture: and so they get a glimpse of God again in His saints and heroes, and glorify their Father who is in heaven. - Charles Kingsley

Voice of the Lord

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — June 25

Rightly understood, faith is not a substitute for moral conduct but a means toward it. The tree does not serve in lieu of fruit but as an agent by which fruit is secured. Fruit, not trees, is the end God has in mind in yonder orchard; so Christlike conduct is the end of Christian faith. To oppose faith to works is to make the fruit the enemy to the… … — (click here to read more)
