Moral Dominion-April 12

Death hath no more dominion over Him . . . in that He liveth, He liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God. —Romans 6:9-11 Co-Eternal Life. Eternal life was the life which Jesus Christ exhibited on the human plane, and it is the same life, […] Read more

The Relapse Of Concentration-April 15

But the high places were not taken away out of Israel; nevertheless the heart of Asa was perfect all his days. — 2 Chronicles 15:17 Asa was incomplete in his external obedience, he was right in the main but not entirely right. Beware of the thing of which you say – “Oh, that does not matter much.” The […] Read more

Those Borders Of Distrust-April 04

Behold, the hour cometh . . . that ye shall be scattered. — John 16:32 Jesus is not rebuking the disciples, their faith was real, but it was disturbed; it was not at work in actual things. The disciples were scattered to their own interests, alive to interests that never were in Jesus Christ. After we have […] Read more

What To Do Under The Conditions-April 13

Cast thy burden upon the Lord. —Psalm 55:22 We must distinguish between the burden-bearing that is right and the burden-bearing that is wrong.

The Spontaneity Of Love–April 30

Love suffereth long, and is kind . . . —1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is not premeditated, it is spontaneous, i.e., it bursts up in extraordinary ways. There is nothing of mathematical certainty in Paul’s category of love. We cannot say – “Now I am going to think no evil; I am going to believe all things.” The […] Read more

The Graciousness Of Uncertainty–April 29

It doth not yet appear what we shall be. —1 John 3:2 Naturally, we are inclined to be so mathematical and calculating that we look upon uncertainty as a bad thing. We imagine that we have to reach some end, but that is not the nature of spiritual life. The nature of spiritual life is that we […] Read more

What You Will Get–April 28

Thy life will I give thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest. — Jeremiah 45:5 This is the unshakable secret of the Lord to those who trust Him – “I will give thee thy life.” What more does a man want than his life? It is the essential thing. “Thy life for a prey” […] Read more

What Do You Want? –April 27

Seekest thou great things for thyself? —Jeremiah 45:5 Are you seeking great things for yourself? Not seeking to be a great one, but seeking great things from God for yourself. God wants you in a closer relationship to Himself than receiving His gifts, He wants you to get to know Him. A great thing is accidental, […] Read more

The Supreme Climb–April 26

 Take now thy son . . and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. — Genesis 22:2 Character determines how a man interprets God’s will (cf. Psalm 18:25-26). Abraham interpreted God’s command to mean that he had to kill his son, and he could only leave this […] Read more
