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.

True Faith

True Faith We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. 1 John 2:3 The difficulty we modern Christians face is not misunderstanding the Bible, but persuading our untamed hearts to accept its plain instructions. Our problem is to get the consent of our world-loving minds to make Jesus Lord…

No Middle Ground

No Middle Ground So throughout the entire New Testament a sharp line is drawn between the Church and the world. There is no middle ground. The Lord recognizes no good natured “agreeing to disagree” so that the followers of the Lamb may adopt the world’s ways and travel along the world’s path. The gulf between…

Sending Something Better

Sending Something Better However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.—John 16:13 Our trouble is that we are trying to confirm the truth…

Choices

Choices I have chosen the way of truth; Your judgments I have laid before me. I cling to Your testimonies; O Lord, do not put me to shame!—Psalm 119:30-31 The important thing about a man is not where he goes when he is compelled to go, but where he goes when he is free to…

Prayerful Digestion of God’s Word

How then shall unbelief be cured and faith be strengthened? Surely not by straining to believe the Scriptures, as some do. Not by a frantic effort to believe the promises of God. Not by gritting our teeth and determining to exercise faith by an act of the will. All this has been tried–and it never…

It May Not Be Convenient

But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.—1 Corinthians 9:27 What must our Lord think of us if His work and His witness depend upon the convenience of His people? The truth is that every advance that we make for God…
