"Apart from me ye can do nothing." ....John 15:5

The temptation always to try to do something in our Christian life so as to be a "something" is ingrained in all of us because it is ingrained in human nature. How often is it only at the point of utter despair with ourselves that we remember the Lord and we relinquish to Him the task that He is so ready and so able to perform! The sooner we do so ...

"I know whom I have believed." ....2 Timothy 1:12

If you ask a number of believers who have entered into a 'Born again' experience in Christ, how did they come by that experience, some will say in this way and some will say in that way. Each stresses his own particular mode of entering into the Christian life and produces Scripture to support his personal experience. But unhappily, many Christians...

"Fear not ye, neither be dismayed ... for the battle is not yours but God's" .....2 Chronicles 20:15

Fight to get the victory and you have lost the battle at the very outset! Your discomfiture as a Christian starts the moment you begin to reckon that 'you' must win. Suppose Satan sets out to assault you in your home or in your business. Difficulties mount up, misunderstandings arise, a situation you can neither deal with nor escape from threatens ...

O"She hath wrought a good work upon me." .....Matthew 26:10

When the Lord returns and we see him face to face as He is, I trust that we shall all pour out our treasures and ourselves at his feet. But what about today - what are we doing with Him today? Are we pouring out ourselves today and anointing Him? Several days after Mary broke that alabaster box and poured the ointment on Jesus' head, there were som...

"The priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth." .....Malachi 2:7

In this day of deception and falsehood in the Church, it is possible that much so-called spiritual-revival is on a wrong basis. Spiritual gifts are displayed without measure, but unless there is a ministration of Christ, it is like having many utensils but with nothing in them to use them for. Yet it is worse, for without Christ, so called spiritua...

"While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."....Romans 5:8

Seeing the price of our redemption, how can we do other than to give ourselves totally to the Lord Jesus? "By the mercies of God I beseech you," pleads Paul in Romans 12. Throughout the preceding eleven chapters he has recounted them, God's divine mercies, all the way. God's love led Christ to die for us in the first place, so as to give us His lif...

"If, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled shall we be saved (delivered) by His life." .....Romans 5:10

God makes it quite clear in His word that for every human need He has but only one answer and that answer is His Son. In all of His dealings with us, He works by taking us out of the way and substituting (putting) Christ in our place. Jesus, the Son of God, died in my place, as my substitute on the cross, to pay the price of my sins and secure my f...

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...
