Making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is" .....Ephesians 5:16,17

In God's appointed course for you, it may be that today was to have been the greatest day of your life, yet you would let it slip by as if it were just another day. The man whose today is like his yesterday lacks a sense of God's timing. No born again Christian should be content with their present obtainment; for to be satisfied with what you are i...

"The natural man receiveth not the things of the spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him."....1 Cor 2:14

It has pleased God to say many things in His written word to us, which leave room for many misunderstandings, and also not to explain them! Often in the Bible there seems to be conflicting statements, or just statements that seem to violate the known facts of life. And it has pleased Him to leave them there just the way they are without further cla...

"Praise him, O ye servants of the Lord; ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God." ......Psalm 135:1

What a privilege we have to be able stand in praise before the Lord Jesus Christ! It seems to me that today we always want to be moving on, we just can't stand still. So many things claim our attention that we are perpetually moving and on the go. Many things are controlling us rather than us being in control of them! We cannot hardly stop from the...

"These are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life in His name." John 20:31

Watchman Nee: "I was once holding meetings in a college in South China. There I found an old school fellow of mine was now a professor of psychology, so before the meetings began I went to call on him, and spoke to him of Christ. After listening a while politely, he said smiling, "It's no good preaching to me, I don't believe there is a God! I 'm a...

"The city was pure gold, like unto pure glass." ....Revelation 21:18

Gold speaks to us here of something that is totally of God and of glass that is transparently pure. May we adapt the latter simile, and suggest that future purity is well illustrated by pure glass, but that our present purity is best described by clear water? For water can readily become clouded with defilement, but no impurity can enter the textur...

Part two of a three day series: "It is no longer I but Christ"

"I am crucified with Christ: yet it is no longer I who lives, but Christ that lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me" Galatians 2:20. The cross of Christ is not only the greatest terminator in the universe, it is also the greatest translator. It translates...

Part one of a three day series: "I am crucified with Christ" "I am crucified with Christ: it is no longer I who lives, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me" ......Galatians 2:20.

The cross of Christ stands in eternity as the greatest terminator of all time! At the cross, God has dealt with us perfectly and completely.The cross terminates all that I am as 'self' and translates me into all that that God has made Christ to be , for me. To be crucified with Christ is to know in your heart that God has included you and me in the...

"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? "That you may not do the things that you would." I think we have often failed to grasp the importance and significance of that last clause. Today in the Chu...

"Now if we be dead with Christ, we know that we shall also live with Him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead will not die again; death no longer has dominion over Him anymore." ...Romans 6:8-9

"Knowing," as expressed here, is something much more than either thought or feeling. To really know something is to have the existence of that thing in your life. To know is to have faith. To know is to have reality. To know is to see as God sees, i.e. from His viewpoint. Faith is confidence in God not self. Allow me to give you an example of faith...
