"It was the good pleasure of God ... to reveal his Son in me.".....Galatians 1:15

I would not, even if I could, exchange places with the disciples, even on the Mount of Transfiguration! The Christ with whom they lived was the Christ in the flesh, a Christ limited by time and space. Was He in Galilee? Then he could only be found in Galilee; He could not be found in Jerusalem or elsewhere. Was He in Jerusalem? if so, then men soug...

"The flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: for these are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would." .....Galatians 5:17

Consider carefully what this says. "The flesh" in us is not opposed to us but to the Holy Spirit of God! It is He, not we, who meets and deals with its ways and its lusts. And with what result?

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart" ...Deut 6:5. The Decalogue opens with God's claim to exclusive worship. This expression of God's will is not only His command, it is also His desire. But if the ten commandments show us what gives God joy, the temptations in the wilderness reveal what will bring joy to Satan. In both cases it is...

"We which have believed do enter into that rest." ....Hebrews 4:3

Rest follows work. In the fullest sense, rest is only possible when the work is completed to a point of satisfaction. It is no trifling matter that God rested after those six days of creation. How, we may ask, could He - this God of purpose, this God of abundant life - come to such a rest? Genesis 1:31 gives us the reason: "God saw everything that ...
