Tidal Islands
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

Then He commanded the crowds to sit down on the grass. He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed them. He broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. Everyone ate and was filled. Then they picked up 12 baskets full of leftover pieces!…(continue reading article)

The Love of the Truth (42 of TBD)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

If it is impossible for mankind to know the truth, God is nothing more than a sadistic tyrant! If a strong delusion such as the one mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2 is extremely difficult to avoid, God’s fairness certainly ought to be questioned. If the power of Satan cannot be readily seen as inferior when compared…(continue reading article)

Do You Not Care?
'Word from Scotland' from Sandy Shaw

Have you noticed that in each section of Mark’s Gospel, Mark reveals a little more about Jesus – His power – His purpose – His self understanding of who He is.

Daily Wisdom
Proverbs 18:20 - With the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach will be satisfied; He will be satisfied with the product of his lips.
Words to Ponder
He knew more sorrow than any man, indeed, more than all men ever did. For the iniquity, and the sorrows of all men, met in him as if he had been their centre. He was acquainted with grief - indeed, he was acquainted with little else. Grief was his familiar acquaintance. He had no acquaintance with laughter: we never read that he laughed at all when he was in the world. His other acquaintances stood afar off, but grief followed him to the cross. From his birth to his death, from his cradle to the Cross, from the womb to the tomb he was a man of sorrows, and never were sorrows like his. - Ralph Venning (1621-74)

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
The Unblameable Attitude

If when you come to the altar, there you remember that your brother has anything against you, not - If you rake up something by a morbid sensitiveness, but - "If thou rememberest," that is, if it is brought to your conscious mind by the Spirit of God: "first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for April 6

"Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp." - Hebrews 13:13 Jesus, bearing his cross, went forth to suffer without the gate. The Christian's reason for leaving the camp of the world's sin and religion is not because he loves to be singular, but because Jesus did so; and the disciple must…… — (click here to read more)

Daily Light on the Daily Path

A God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. Him that judgeth righteously. — We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. — Every one of us shall give account of himself to God. — The soul that sinneth… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"
Among the Redeemed

"Lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be redeemed among the nations."   Numbers 23:9 Who would wish to dwell among the nations and to be numbered with them? Why, even the professing church is such that to follow the LORD fully within its bounds is very difficult. There is such a mingling and mixing that one often sighs for "a lodge in some… — (click here to read more)

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Elul 23'

Before Rosh HaShanah (the traditional New Year), Orthodox Jews will sometimes ask a panel of judges to annul any vows they have taken carelessly and become unable to fulfill, so the vows will not be held against them on the Holy Day.

The Wrong Collection

My dad's brother, my uncle Orlyn Kelly, used to collect coins. He had a rather substantial collection of coins at the time of his death several years ago.

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
The Time Tunnel

Solomon turns his attention to the consideration of time. Who can define time? Longfellow asked, "What is time?", and then went on to say that although time could be measured, it could not be clearly defined. One of the best definitions of discipleship I have ever heard is: "Discipleship is what a person does with his time."…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Judge

Judge - About a month ago we looked at the word for "justice". This word is from the same root. It is shapat. It means, "to act out the functions of government". The Hebrew concept of governing is not like the idea of justice in the Western world. It is not the application of a separate set of laws that exist…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — September 26

It should be pointed out that no revealed truth becomes automatically effective. The effect any truth has upon us depends upon our attitude toward it. First it must be accepted in active faith and received into our minds as completely trustworthy and beyond dispute. It must become a kind of dye to give color to all of our thinking and praying. The… … — (click here to read more)
