Encouraging Essentials for a Dynamic Ministry, Part 1
with Chuck Swindoll from 'Insight for Living'

Do You Really Wanna Know?
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

“Command that in Your kingdom these two sons of mine may sit one on Your right and one on Your left.” But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?” They said to Him, “We are able.” He said to them, “My cup…(continue reading article)

The Love of the Truth (19 of TBD)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

According to the Bible, what town was identified as Jesus’ “own city?” Furthermore, what is the background for this place having that noteriety? Did you say Nazareth? If you did you might be with the majority, but you would also be wrong! Jesus was brought up in Nazareth (Luke 4.16), but He later “adopted”…(continue reading article)

''Winging It' from Stan Smith

You remember the story of the conversion of Saul of Tarsus. He was a persecuter of the church.

Words to Ponder
Many pray for the Spirit, that they may make use of Him and His power for their work. This is certainly wrong. It is He who must use you. Your relationship toward Him must be one of deep dependence and utter submission. - Andrew Murray (1828-1917)

Daily Devotionals  for  August 31

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
My Joy . . . Your Joy

What was the joy that Jesus had? It is an insult to use the word happiness in connection with Jesus Christ. The joy of Jesus was the absolute self-surrender and self-sacrifice of Himself to His Father, the joy of doing that which the Father sent Him to do. "I delight to do Thy will." Jesus prayed that our joy…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for May 2

"I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world." - John 17:15 It is a sweet and blessed event which will occur to all believers in God's own time-the going home to be with Jesus.

Daily Light on the Daily Path
Morning / Evening Devotional — August 31

The free gift is of many offences unto justification. Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. — I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Divine, Ever-Living, Unchanging

"But the Word of the LORD endureth for ever. And this is the Word which by the Gospel is preached unto you."   I Peter 1:25 All human teaching and, indeed, all human beings shall pass away as the grass of the meadow; but we are here assured that the Word of the LORD is of a very different character, for it shall endure forever. We have here a divine… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Av 27'

Have you ever noticed that Yeshua always goes "up" to Yerushalayim (Jerusalem)? Even when he is going south, he goes "up" to Yerushalayim. Why? Yerushalayim is high up on the Judean hills. But more than that, it's the city of God. You never go down to God. You always go up, so the journey to Yerushalayim was given a special name—aliyah (going up).… — (click here to read more)

Knowing the Rules

Games have rules. Golf is not different than baseball, basketball, cricket or rugby. Its rules book has been refined and updated over the years to accommodate the changes that have been made in course conditions and the ever-being-modified equipment. Invariably, some place in a friendly match I play, a question concerning…… — (click here to read more)

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Wisdom - Only from God

Wisdom provides us with an inner strength. That is the point Solomon is making in this passage. One who operates with wisdom possesses more strength than ten city officials. And those who have come up against officialdom and bureaucracy will know that this is some strength! When we have wisdom, we have the inner strength…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Not - This is a harsh verse. It may not seem harsh because we are likely to modify its meaning to accommodate our own failures. We want to feel better about our efforts to meet its demands, so we lessen the impact of the verse by acting as though it says, "people who are not kind and generous and don't care about…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — August 31

God has revealed so many glorious contradictions in the lives and conduct of genuine Christian believers that it is small wonder that we are such an amazement to this world. The Christian is dead and yet he lives forever. He died to himself and yet he lives in Christ. The Christian saves his own life by losing it and he is in danger of losing it… … — (click here to read more)

"The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him." Lamentations 3:25
