    In Our Hearts

    Those of us who are Christians, who are followers of Jesus Christ, know that we are to emulate him. We are to be like him in character, words, attitudes and deeds. We are his body, his representatives to the world around us, and to one another. As his body, we are his hands, his feet and his...

    We Once Walked

    And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires...

    According to His Purpose

    The Lord Jesus led me to read Ephesians 1 (Select vv. ESV). Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and are faithful in Christ Jesus: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Vv. 1-2 Notice with me here to whom these...

    Free in Christ

    What does it mean to be “free in Christ”? Truly it means our sins are forgiven and we are no longer under condemnation. Amen. And, if we are in Christ, by faith in him, we, thus, have the hope of eternal life with God in glory. But, is there more to this freedom than that? The Lord Jesus led me...

    Walk in Peace

    Are you burdened by the cares of this world? Is your marriage falling apart? Have you experienced lies and betrayal from someone you love, or from someone you trusted? Have you lost a loved one to death? Has your health taken a turn for the worse? Did you recently lose a job, and now you don’t...

    Something Skipped

    Have you found yourself in a spiral of sin, confess, sin, confess, sin, confess, but you never seem to progress past that? You keep repeating the same patterns, the same sins, the same responses, with the same lies, and the same attitudes, but you just can’t seem to jump ship. It is a lot like...

    What Changed?

    When you believed in Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior of your life, what difference did that make in your life? What immediately changed? How was your life different from what it was before you believed? Or, did believing in Jesus make a significant difference in your life? And, then, as you...

    Our Confidence

    The Apostle Paul said we should put no confidence in the flesh, and then he went on to list the ways in which he had done that (Phil. 3:3b-6). But, I would like it if we could think of the ways in which we put confidence in the flesh, not just in our own flesh, but in the flesh of humankind, in...

    A Common Thread

    If you, being a follower of Jesus Christ, were to write a testimony of what difference Jesus Christ has made in your life, what would that say? Surely, each of our testimonies would be as individual as we are, but there should also be a common thread weaved throughout all of them. The Lord...

    Outside the Box

    Has God ever called you to do something, or to a ministry, which was “outside the box”? To something unconventional by human standards? To something that didn’t fit in with the norms of institutional religion? And, you knew, that by accepting this call on your life, that you were going to face...

    Enslaved Again?

    Do you lay claims to being a follower of Jesus Christ? Does your walk match your talk? Or are you, behind closed doors, someone else entirely? The Lord Jesus led me to read Galatians 4 (Select vv. NASB). However, at that time, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature...

    Troubled Hearts

    The Lord Jesus led me to read John 14 (vv. 1-6 NASB). “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.” V. 1 When we are born into this world, we are born with sin natures, in slavery to sin, separate from God, and we all fall short of attaining God’s divine approval, in...

    Abiding in Christ

    The Lord Jesus led me to read John 15 (Select vv. ESV). Are you in a true relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you genuinely saved from your sins, and bound for heaven? How do you know this? How can you be sure? What did Jesus Christ have to say on this subject? “I am the true vine, and my...

    A God Void

    When we are born into this world, we are born with sin natures. We all fall short of attaining God’s divine approval, in our own flesh, because we have all sinned against God (Rom. 3:23). Thus, there is a God void in our lives. Although Adam and Eve, when first created by God, were in perfect...

    Are You Crucified?

    The Lord Jesus led me to read John 1 (Select vv. NASB). Jesus Christ, the Son of God (and God) is the Word of which this passage speaks. This fact will become clear as we near the end of this scripture. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in...

    His Goodness to Us

    The Lord Jesus led me to read John 17 (vv. 1-19 ESV). Jesus Christ, the Son of God, when he walked this earth, was fully God yet fully man. He suffered just like we suffer, and he was tempted in like manner as we are also tempted, yet without sin. Although, when on the earth, he healed the sick...

    Called to Freedom

    Monday, October 9, 2017, 6:00 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Oh, To Be Like Thee.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Galatians 5:13-26 (NASB). Law in One Word (vv. 13-15) For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the...

    Fame and Treasure

    Monday, September 18, 2017, 8:08 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read varied scriptures on the topic of taking up our cross. Treasures in Heaven (Matthew 6:19-21, 24) “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on...

    For Christ

    Thursday, September 14, 2017, 4:59 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Oh, To Be Like Thee, Blessed Redeemer.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Philippians 1 (Select vv. ESV). Gospel Advanced (vv. 12-14) I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really...

    It Should Show

    Friday, September 1, 2017, 5:49 p.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “What Blessed Communion.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Philippians 2 (Select vv. NASB). Fellowship of the Spirit (vv. 1-4) Therefore, if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation...
