Richard Ellis

First Love
with Richard Ellis from 'Richard Ellis Talks'

Our love for God is what should motivate us to do things for Him, not guilt. If we do things out of guilt we will end up quitting, but if we serve Him out of love for Him then we will continue with an attitude of joy. When we understand that God loves us, we cannot help but love Him back and love others…   (click here to read more)

The Small Stuff
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

Clean out the old yeast so that you may be a new batch, since you are unleavened. For Christ our Passover has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us observe the feast, not with old yeast, or with the yeast of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. - 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 HCSB In Africa,…(continue reading article)

Fruit to God; Fruit to Death
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

Death is not usually seen as a happy time. Sometimes death is seen as a relief or a release especially in the case of extreme suffering. God sees the death of one of His saints as precious (Psalm 116.15), but then again He is able to look at all sides of life and know with certainty what is best. However, as we examine…(continue reading article)

Contrary Relationships
'Point of Reference' from Fred Price

     Maintaining successful relationships can be difficult, the Bible being the place to learn how to develop them to the highest degree.  But there is scripture that seems contrary in it’s depiction of our relationship to God in comparison to the love we have for our families, friends, and…(continue reading article)

Choices

Daily Devotionals  for  May 6

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
Liberty On The Abyss Of The Gospel

A spiritually minded man will never come to you with the demand - "Believe this and that;" but with the demand that you square your life with the standards of Jesus. We are not asked to believe the Bible, but to believe the One Whom the Bible reveals (cf. John 5:39-40). We are called to present liberty of conscience,…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for August 27

"How long will it be ere they believe me?" - Numbers 14:11 Strive with all diligence to keep out that monster unbelief. It so dishonours Christ, that he will withdraw his visible presence if we insult him by indulging it. It is true it is a weed, the seeds of which we an never entirely extract from the soil,…… — (click here to read more)

Daily Light on the Daily Path
Morning / Evening Devotional — May 6

Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. A just God and a Saviour. The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable. God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them. — Whom God hath set forth to be a… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Cure for Envy

"Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long. For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cast off."   Proverbs 23:17-18 When we see the wicked prosper we are apt to envy them. When we hear the noise of their mirth and our own spirit is heavy, we half think that they have the best of it.… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Nisan 28'

God promises special protection to his loved ones who fear him and serve him. That protection doesn't come by removing us from trials and difficult circumstances.

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life
There Is No Substitute

It's December. The air is colder. The rain is coming much too frequently. The wind is much too brisk. This is not golf weather. What does a person, whose only weekly distraction is golf, do with himself when he cannot play golf? When I figure that out I'll let you know. No, seriously, I have no idea. There are…… — (click here to read more)

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Desires versus goals

We ended yesterday by saying that some things in life, such as the desire to have money, can be legitimate concerns but they must be looked upon as desires and never become goals. Permit me to differentiate between the two. A goal is a purpose to which a person is unalterably committed and something for which he or she…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Confession

Confession - The word is homologian. Here is it coupled with kalen (good, beautiful, harmonious). Homologian is a combination word made up of the prefix homos meaning "same" and logos meaning "word". So, we get "say the same word" or "agreement". There is a play on words in this…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — May 6

Remember, we are compared with what we could be, not just what we should be. God being who He is, and Jesus Christ being His risen and all-powerful Son, anything we ought to be we can be. Anything that God has declared that we should be we can be. In the wonderful book of Romans, perhaps the greatest and most profound book in the Bible, 7 tells us… … — (click here to read more)

Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17

IN prayer we must approach God as a Father, ask of Him what we really need, and expect to receive according to His wisdom and word. Our wants are constantly returning, therefore our prayers should be constantly ascending. The ear of God is always open. He is ever ready to listen to us. He invites,…
