God Inhabits The Ordinary
''Christ in You...'' from Dale Krebbs

At times God may seem distant. It can be a very lonely feeling. At times, to the point of desperation. In these times, we long to reduce the distance, feel His closness again.

Proverbs 14:22 - Will they not go astray who devise evil? But kindness and truth will be to those who devise good.
Words to Ponder
Perhaps the greatest single weakness of the contemporary Christian Church is that millions of supposed members are not really involved at all, and, what is worse, do not think it strange that they are not. As soon as we recognize Christ's intention to make His Church a militant company we understand at once the conventional arrangement cannot suffice. There is no real chance of victory in a campaign if ninety per cent of the soldiers are untrained and uninvolved, but that is exactly where we stand now. - Elton Trueblood (20th century)

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
Distraction Of Antipathy

The thing of which we have to beware is not so much damage to our belief in God as damage to our Christian temper. "Therefore take heed to thy spirit, that ye deal not treacherously."

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Kislev 01'

When I perform a wedding, I speak of the bride "in all her beauty." But what if she is not so beautiful? She is beautiful because she is the bride. To the groom, the bride is always beautiful.

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

My - In Greek, mou meaning "me or mine". Literally the verse reads, "Do not make the house the Father of me a place of merchandise." Such a simple word. But the implication is enormous.

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — November 23

Jesus did not promise any of us that consistent Christian living would be easy! He did not promise a release from daily problems and pressures.
