For Such a Time as This
We may have the impression that the great men and women of the Bible worn born great ... and stayed great. The truth is, most were unremarkable people ... until they made themselves available to God! Friday on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie shows us a case in point from the (click here to read more)
The Blessing of Spiritual Wisdom
No matter how much desire we have to be a kingdom Christian, none of us has the power to actually do it… unless we get it from God. Next time on The Alternative, Dr. Tony Evans tells us how that can happen as he explains how to stop being a "filling station" Christian. (click here to read more)
Isaac loved Esau because he had a taste for wild game, but Rebekah loved Jacob. - Genesis 25:28 HCSB Like many marriages, Rebekah and Isaac’s started out idyllically but soon degenerated into a mutually apathetic relationship. It diverged even further into reciprocal frustration and antagonism. What started (continue reading article)
I am a Debtor (Romans 1.14-15; encore)
A debtor, very simply put, is someone who owes a debt, or is bound by some obligation to another. Paul declared himself to be a debtor when he wrote, “I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise. So, as much as is in me, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome (continue reading article)
How Highly Do You Value and Appreciate The Kingdom of God?
Where your treasure is there will your heart be also. Do we not discover that so very few people have their heart and thereby their treasure in the kingdom of God and in the work and service of the kingdom of God? We are reading in Matthew Chapter 13 verses 44 to 46. Where your treasure is (continue reading article)

Words to Ponder
Too many missionary appeals are based upon this fancied frustration of Almighty God. An effective speaker can easily excite pity in his hearers, not only for the heathen but for the God who has tried so hard and so long to save them and has failed for want of support. I fear that thousands of younger persons enter Christian service from no higher motive than to help deliver God from the embarrassing situation His love has gotten Him into and His limited abilities seem unable to get Him out of. - A.W. Tozer (20th century)
We have all had times on the mount, when we have seen things from God's standpoint and have wanted to stay there; but God will never allow us to stay there. The test of our spiritual life is the power to descend; if we have power to rise only, something is wrong. It is a great thing to be on the mount with God, but a man (click here to read more)
"Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth." - Song of Solomon 1:2 For several days we have been dwelling upon the Saviour's passion, and for some little time to come we shall linger there. In beginning a new month, let us seek the same desires after our Lord as those which glowed in the heart of the (click here to read more)
The fruit of the Spirit is temperance. Every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have (click here to read more)
"He hath given meat unto them that fear Him: He will ever be mindful of His Covenant." Psalms 111:5 Those who fear God need not fear want. Through all these long years the LORD has always found meat for His own children, whether they have been in the wilderness, or by the brook Cherith, or in captivity, or in the midst of famine. Hitherto the LORD (click here to read more)
Considering human weakness, it's no wonder that we are vulnerable to discouragement, especially when we fail the Lord. Shim'on and Levi had seriously jeopardized the future of their descendants by their act of violence and cruelty, as recorded in Genesis 34. They avenged the rape of their sister Dinah by killing all the males in the city where the rapist (click here to read more)
Reviews. Donchajustluvem? Basically, a review is nothing more than a fancy opinion offered as fact. Despite the alarming salaries that people are being paid to review things, they are also, just as alarmingly, often so wrong. Reviewers forget that they are not working with right and wrong, but more so with personal (click here to read more)
If education, intellectualism and philosophy are not the routes to making life work - then what is? Perhaps life can be found in pleasure. Not so, says Solomon. Pleasure pleases, but it is powerless to quench the ache that exists in the soul. We are provided with a list of the ways in which pleasure can be gained, but all (click here to read more)
So also - Are your sufferings in abundance? Are you pressed by a world of troubles? Do things in life seem to be at the breaking point? That's exactly how I am feeling these days. Life is getting very heavy for me. But notice the perspective Paul offers in this verse. God balances our sufferings with comfort. The (click here to read more)
The emphasis today in Christian circles appears to be on quantity, with a corresponding lack of emphasis on quality. Numbers, size and amount seem to be very nearly all that matters even among evangelicals. The size of the crowd, the number of converts, the size of the budget, the amount of the weekly collections: if these look good the church is (click here to read more)
Who is on the Lord's side? - Exodus 32:26Every believer is ready to answer,"I am." Well, the Lord has a cause upon the earth; it is weak, and wants your support; it is opposed, and needs your countenance.
If you are on the Lord's side, you are on the side of truth, holiness, charity, of His worship and ordinances, of His people and (click here to read more)
