The Seed
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

"I assure you: Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains by itself. But if it dies, it produces a large crop. The one who loves his life will lose it, and the one who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me. Where I am, there My…(continue reading article)

Proverbs 24:9 - The devising of folly is sin, And the scoffer is an abomination to men.
Words to Ponder
For many, Christianity has become the grinding out of general doctrinal laws from collections of biblical facts. But childlike wonder and awe have died. The scenery and poetry and music of the majesty of God have dried up like a forgotten peach at the back of the refrigerator. - John Piper (b. 1947)

Daily Devotionals  for  February 13

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Devotion Of Hearing

Because I have listened definitely to one thing from God, it does not follow that I will listen to everything He says. The way in which I show God that I neither love nor respect Him is by the obtuseness of my heart and mind towards what He says. If I love my friend, I intuitively detect what he wants, and Jesus says, "Ye…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for November 18

"A spring shut up, a fountain sealed." - Song of Solomon 4:12 In this metaphor, which has reference to the inner life of a believer, we have very plainly the idea of secrecy. It is a spring shut up: just as there were springs in the East, over which an edifice was built, so that none could reach them save…… — (click here to read more)

Daily Light on the Daily Path
Morning / Evening Devotional — February 13

Upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. The man Christ Jesus. — Made in the likeness of men ... found in fashion as a man. — Forasmuch ... as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Blessed in the Field

"Blessed shalt thou be in the field."   Deuteronomy 28:3 So was Isaac blessed when he walked therein at eventide to meditate. How often has the LORD met us when we have been alone! The hedges and the trees can bear witness to our joy. We look for such blessedness again. So was Boaz blessed when he reaped his harvest, and his workmen met him with… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Adar 04'

The core of our confession of faith is love for God. At times our rabbis have emphasized obedience to the mitzvot (commandments) and have neglected the importance of a passionate love for the Holy One of Israel. But obedience should always be a response to love. Yeshua said, "This is the greatest and most important mitzvah [commandment]" (Matthew 22:38).… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

This meaning has examples in the Old Testament in political alliances between…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — February 13

Do we really believe that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is something more than making us the "happiest fellows in the Easter parade"? Are we just to listen to the bright cantata and join in singing, "Up from the Grave He Arose," smell the flowers and go home and forget it? No, certainly not! It is truth and a promise with a specific moral…… — (click here to read more)

The Lord delighteth in thee. - Isaiah 62:4

The Lord delighteth in thee. - Isaiah 62:4

And is it possible, that such poor, depraved, unworthy creatures, can be the objects of Jehovah's delight? Yes: the infinite love of God has been fixed upon us from eternity: because He loved us, He sent His only-begotten Son to die for us; He sent His Holy Spirit into our hearts; and gave us a good…
