Daily Devotionals  for  March 1

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Undeviating Question

Peter declares nothing now (cf. Matthew 26:33-35). Natural individuality professes and declares; the love of the personality is only discovered by the hurt of the question of Jesus Christ. Peter loved Jesus in the way in which any natural man loves a good man. That is temperamental love; it may go deep into the individuality,…… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Adar 10'

Many look for miracles as the proof they need to trust in God. This is particularly true of our people. Rabbi Sha'ul (Saul; i.e., Paul) said, "Jews ask for signs" (1 Corinthians 1:22). To ma (Thomas) wanted evidence, and so do we. Yet Yeshua promised a special blessing for those who trusted. ...believe in Yeshua's transforming power. I will look for… — (click here to read more)

The consuming fire

When large numbers of adherents in the Christian churches come to believe that God is different from what He actually is, that concept becomes heresy of the most insidious and deadly kind!
