If God is for Us... (Romans 8:31)

Proverbs 13:18 - Poverty and shame will come to him who neglects discipline, But he who regards reproof will be honored.
Words to Ponder
People naturally do not shout it out, least of all into the ears of us ministers; but let us not be deceived by their silence. Blood and tears, deepest despair and highest hope, a passionate longing to lay hold of ... Him who overcomes the world because He is its Creator and Redeemer, its beginning and ending and lord -- a passionate longing to have the word spoken, the word which promises grace in judgment, life in death, and the beyond in the here and now, God's word -- this it is that animates our church-goers. - Karl Barth

Daily Devotionals  for  April 24

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Warning Against Wantoning

As Christian workers, worldliness is not our snare, sin is not our snare, but spiritual wantoning is, viz.: taking the pattern and print of the religious age we live in, making eyes at spiritual success. Never court anything other than the approval of God, go "without the camp, bearing His reproach." Jesus told…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for September 8

"From me is thy fruit found." - Hosea 14:8 Our fruit is found from our God as to union. The fruit of the branch is directly traceable to the root.

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Condition of Blessing

"Bring ye all of the tithes into the Storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine House, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."   Malachi 3:10 Many read and plead this promise without noticing the condition upon… — (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
A Perfect Fit

While living in Bellville, Ohio, in 1991 we rented a place on Main Street that had a side porch that was screened in. I asked my landlord if he would mind if I converted it into a golf shop.

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Purity - not a popular thought

Now that we understand what Scripture means by the term "heart" - the core of our being - we ask ourselves another important question: What does our Lord mean when He uses the word "pure"? "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God." The word "pure" (Greek: katharos) means a heart that is clean or clear. Unfortunately,…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Comfort

Comfort - In Greek, parakaleisthe. Literally, "called to one's side" for the purpose of helping. "Comfort" is not a very good translation. The word is more closely associated with the idea of strength, help or consolation. The critical connection for this word is that it is the title that Jesus uses when he…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — April 24

I once wrote in an editorial that Christian believers are not orphans in this world, making the point that the divine Shepherd goes before us and that we travel an appointed way. A reader wrote to question my allusion to our traveling an "appointed" way, asking: "I was brought up a Methodist. In your comments, do you mean this to be… … — (click here to read more)

The Believer's Daily Remembrancer
"I am the bread of life." John 6:35

"I am the bread of life." John 6:35

JESUS proposeth Himself to be our daily sustenance--we need bread for the soul as well as the body. In Jesus is all we need to refresh, strengthen, and satisfy us; but He must be received by faith. He must be daily received. Feeding upon Jesus yesterday will not do for today. We must go to Him afresh…
