Pearls of Wisdom

Read about what God is saying to His people in these last days. Let Him stir your heart and challenge you to live according to His will.

God Gives–And Gives

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called. 1 Timothy 6:12 We ought to spend more time remembering the blessings and the benefits God is continually giving us while we are alive—before we leave this vale of tears! He gives us forgiveness—so we are to live for…

Mediocre Christianity

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.—Romans 6:12-13 It is disheartening to…

Spiritual Warfare and Sin: Resentment

Looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled. —Hebrews 12:15 In the course of scores of conferences and hundreds of conversations I have many times heard people say, “I resent that.” But I repeat: I have never…

Too Much “At Home”

These all died in faith . . . and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. Hebrews 11:13 One of the most telling indictments against many of us who comprise our Christian churches is the almost complete acceptance of the contemporary scene as our permanent home! We have been working and earning,…

Spiritual Warfare and Sin: Be Ye Holy

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying “Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.’”—Leviticus 19:1-2 No one whose senses have been exercised to know good and evil but must grieve over the sight of zealous souls…

What Really Matters?

For what hath man of all his labour . . . wherein he hath laboured under the sun? Ecclesiastes 2:22 It is all but impossible these days to get people to pay any attention to things that really matter. The broad cynic in our modern civilization is likely to ask: “What really matters, after all?”…

A Judicial Change of Status

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2 I think the truth of the matter is not too deep nor too difficult to discover. Self-righteousness is an effective bar to God’s favor because it throws the sinner back upon his own…

Moral Determination

He . . . was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord. Acts 11:23 Though we do not have much of it in this age of spineless religion, there is nevertheless much in the Bible about the place of moral determination in the service of the…

Rejoice–Or Grumble

Ye greatly rejoice, though . . . ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations. 1 Peter 1:6 I think all of us meet Christian men and women who always seem to look on the gloomy side and are never able to do anything with life’s problems but grumble about them! I meet them often and…

The Touch of God

Some who desire to be teachers of the Word, but who understand neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm, insist upon “naked” faith as the only way to know spiritual things. By this they mean a conviction of the trustworthiness of the Word of God (a conviction, it may be noted, which the devils…
