A Fish in the Hand
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

Stay away from the love of money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never forsake you.” Heb. 13:5   A small fish caught in a net said to the fisherman, “I am too little to be a good meal. Even if you boil me or roast me – I won’t…(continue reading article)

Loosed the Pains of Death (Acts 2.24)

Counterintuitive
''Winging It' from Stan Smith

Paul wrote: We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For Christ did not please Himself, but as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on Me." (Rom 15:1-3) Did…(continue reading article)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for May 17

"So to walk even as he walked." - 1 John 2:6 Why should Christians imitate Christ? They should do it for their own sakes.

For their own happiness'…… — (click here to read more)

Daily Light on the Daily Path

The house that is to be builded for the Lord must be exceeding magnifical.

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Uncover and Confess Sin

"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy."   Proverbs 28:13 Here is the way of mercy for a guilty and repenting sinner.

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Av 24'

God has given us a great promise: the return of the Messiah Yeshua. Yeshua and his coming are our "certain hope." Some believe that through our own efforts we can bring Messiah to earth.

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Be Generous!

Solomon's cynicism almost completely dissolves as we step into these last chapters. If you are like me, you are probably saying to yourself: "And not before time!"

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Here I am

Here I am - This Hebrew phrase is the word hinneh. It literally means, "Behold me", but it carries the connotation of someone who responds to a call who is entirely ready to listen and obey.

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — August 16

There are areas in our lives where in our effort to be right we may go wrong, so wrong as to lead to spiritual deformity. To be specific let me name a few: 1. When in our determination to be bold we become brazen. Courage and meekness are compatible qualities: both were found in perfect proportion in Christ and both shone in beauty in His conflict… … — (click here to read more)
