We bring forth the riches of Christ every morning with short, simple messages designed to encourage and challenge you in your daily walk with Christ.
Overcoming is bound up with abiding. The Lord says, “Live in Me, and I will live in you.”
God delights to see us believing in His Word when it seems impossible! Eventually we begin to see that our reckoning begins to produce fruit.
One does not plant a seed on Sunday morning and expect to find fruit on Monday. The seed must surrender itself to the process of growth before it can mature into something that bears fruit.
It is not that service, fellowship, or preparing meals is a bad thing: it simply has to be in the right order.
To have one’s eyes opened is simply an act of grace, and God alone can do it, and will do it, if we will only ask Him.
Much time and effort in prayer is spent trying to get God involved with OUR agenda, with OUR plans, with OUR goals, with OUR cause, with OUR needs, real or imagined.
The unavoidable, inevitable conclusion is that Christ will have the preeminence – not just in some things, but in all things.
The Cross demonstrates that we do not gain by trying to get, but by losing in order to gain. We cannot really receive from God until we have learned to give up to God.
The difference between a theoretical walk with Christ and a practical walk with Christ hinges upon being able to differentiate between the Law of Life and the Law of Death.
For too long we who claim a heavenly calling, a heavenly citizenship, and a heavenly birth have lived as earthly men.
We do not need to mull over every dream, vision, word, or prophecy, trying to exegete its hidden meaning, struggling to extract some spiritual significance where none exists.
We may pray for revelation into a great many matters, but only one thing is important to God, that is, that we may have revelation into the Son.
