Remember Now Thy Creator

October 1, 2010

Remember Now Thy Creator | Ostis B. Wilson, Jr., 2010 Youth
Whatever it takes for you to save your soul, whatever sacrifices you may have to make, whatever the cost may be, whatever you may have to deny yourself.... This life is just a little while. Eternity is a long time.
Sorry I Got Caught

August 22, 2010

Sorry I Got Caught | Mark P. Spinks, 2010 Repentance
"What do you have, Mark?... Did you get that in that store?" "No." I was concentrating fiercely on outwitting my watchful, determined Mom—too focused to realize that I was now not only a thief, but a liar, too.
The Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness

June 6, 2010

The Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness | Mark P. Spinks, 2010 Ministry
To be the voice of one crying in the wilderness in this way... is to abandon all human planning and direction.... It is to forsake that peculiar fleshly confidence that comes from human reasoning and second-guessing God.
Almost All Are Welcome

September 1, 2011

Almost All Are Welcome | Mark P. Spinks, 2011 Discipline
The decision... had been that he would not be allowed in services from now on. Nothing else had worked. He would not be silenced; he would not voluntarily keep his seat. He had felt obligated to speak of teachings that were condemned by the ministers.
Discerning the Lord's Body

December 1, 2012

Discerning the Lord’s Body | Harlan D. Sorrell, 2011 Church
The essence of Christ's true body is directly related to spiritual status, and spiritual meat and drink. Let us now examine the Word of God and examine our own selves to see if we discern the Lord's body and if we are really a part of it.
Why I Rest All the Time

June 1, 2011

Why I Rest All the Time | Richard J. Erickson, 2011 Rest
"So then there remains a rest to the people of God. For he who has entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Therefore let us labor to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of unbelief."
Christ Lost and Found

January 1, 2012

Christ Lost and Found | Beverly Carradine, 1898 Salvation
He was lost here according to this Scripture. And He was lost by those who loved Him. And lost in Jerusalem and in the Temple!.... And yet why be astonished when the same thing is happening today. Christ is still lost by His friends, and in Jerusalem, and in the Temple.
Hear God's Voice and Follow Him

September 1, 2012

Hear God’s Voice and Follow Him | Fred Pruitt, 2012 Discernment
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us keep in our hearts a love for the truth and the crucified way, lest we be led astray by any of the deceivers around us.... Those who get grounded and settled in the truth will not be blown about by different winds of doctrine.
Holy Spirit Obedience

February 1, 2013

Holy Spirit Obedience | Tyler A. Schones, 2012 Holy Spirit
The burden of this message is to express the... necessity of the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to bring about this type of obedience that Jesus came to produce in us, and a solemn warning against any attempt of the flesh to fulfill this calling.
The Responsibility of My Soul

June 1, 2012

The Responsibility of My Soul | Mark P. Spinks, 2012 Responsibility
Most human beings do not value their soul as they should, but are instead incredibly careless. This neglect of the soul is beyond irresponsible, beyond criminal, beyond comprehension.... So the souls of men become easy pickings for the enemy of mankind.
Feeding Our Faith

November 1, 2013

Feeding Our Faith | George D. Watson, 1896 Faith
Because faith is essential to the spiritual life—both to entering that life, and for any steps of progress in that life—it behooves us to give it all the nourishment possible. Faith can be fed and strengthened, and thus will grow.
How to Find the Christian Life

June 1, 2013

How to Find the Christian Life | Charles E. Orr, 2013 Salvation
Our getting to heaven depends upon the life we live here. If I owned the whole world I would rather lose it all than to miss heaven. But, except we live the true Christian life, this beautiful happy, eternal heaven will never be ours.
Marks of a Spiritual Mind

April 1, 2013

Marks of a Spiritual Mind | Elmer E. Shelhamer, 1917 Sanctification
Men get different conceptions of what constitutes deep spirituality. And as they see things differently, their lives correspond more or less with their theories. Hence the need of a proper, Scriptural standard.
Affliction and Glory

November 1, 2014

Affliction and Glory | George D. Watson, 1894 Vision
Just as the oak tree converts all chemistry into oak by the peculiar quality of its oak life, so the pure in heart, he that lives the Christ life, will from the dark chemistry of this world—its disappointments and suffering—turn all things into glory and praise.
How to Die to Self

December 1, 2014

How to Die to Self | George D. Watson, 1898 Crucifixion
There are many manifestations of the self life which are not clearly sinful, but neither are they truly Christlike. ...this middle zone of self activity... must be... crucified in order to reach deep abiding union with God, where there is none of self and all of Christ Jesus.
Into the Deep

January 1, 2014

Into the Deep | George D. Watson, 1896 Experience
The depth into which we launch will depend upon how perfectly we have given up the shore, and the greatness of our need, and the vision of our possibilities. The fish were to be found in the deep.... So with us; our needs are to be met in the deep things of God.
Little Things

May 1, 2014

Little Things | George D. Watson, 1896 Humility
There is no better way in the world to test every trait in a soul than by little things.... It is our unplanned, instinctive actions and words that reveal what we really are, not those large, conspicuous things for which we especially arm ourselves.
Lukewarmness

February 1, 2014

Lukewarmness | George D. Watson, 1896 Warning
As a rule, lukewarmness of spirit is so decent and well-behaved, that it chloroforms its victim and kills him without a scream of terror. This is what makes it so awfully fatal. While open sin slays its hundreds, nice, respectable lukewarmness slays its tens of thousands.
Take Time

August 1, 2014

Take Time | George D. Watson, 1898 Carefulness
To rush forward in our thinking, speaking, and doing, demonstrates a lack of faith in God, and how little we perceive His presence and dominion over all things. It is true in a thousand different things that "he that believeth shall not make haste."
The Daily Cross

April 1, 2014

The Daily Cross | George D. Watson, 1896 Trials
What is our daily cross? It is those things in our lives that produce suffering of body, mind, or heart. It is those things which in our poor judgment seem to hinder the easy flow of our religious life.... Were there no suffering at all, then there would be no cross at all.
Thy Name Is as Ointment Poured Forth

January 1, 2017

Thy Name Is as Ointment Poured Forth | Joel A. Erickson, 2014 Jesus/Savior
"Very precious" and "very costly" still falls short of the measure of this treasure. Oh, if we could but see how much was contained in the simple words Christ spoke to His disciples, to us: "This is my body, which is broken for you"; "my blood... which is poured out for you."
Walk in Love

October 1, 2014

Walk in Love | George D. Watson, 1894 Love
To walk in love—to speak, to act, to purpose, with the love of God pervading our every movement—is the best and sublimest form of existence. To do this there must be a thorough abandonment of self-will, self-opinion, and self-desire.
Christ Our Healer

October 1, 2015

Christ Our Healer | Albert B. Simpson, 1890 Healing
Divine healing is the supernatural, divine power of God, infused into human bodies, renewing their strength and replacing the weakness of suffering human frames with the life and power of God.... It is the same power... that converted your soul.
Four Outpourings of the Spirit

June 1, 2015

Four Outpourings of the Spirit | George D. Watson, 1891 Holy Spirit
Some people today... have been pardoned, but have not got over into the Acts of the Apostles.... But a real Bible Christian has been through repentance at Sinai, has been reconciled at the cross of Christ, and has been baptized with the Holy Ghost at Pentecost.
Himself

January 1, 2015

Himself | Albert B. Simpson, 1891 Jesus/Savior
That is the way to look at the Scriptures and understand the thoughts of God—to see in them the face of Love, shining through and through. Not ideas, nor doctrines, but Jesus Himself as the Life and Source and sustaining Presence of all our life.
Is Holiness Legalism?

March 1, 2015

Is Holiness Legalism? | John Wesley, 1762 Holiness
Do not say, "I can do nothing." If so, then you know nothing of Christ. Then you have no faith. For if you have faith, if you believe, then you "can do all things through Christ" who strengthens you. You can love Him and keep His commandments.
Learning Spiritual Lessons

September 1, 2015

Learning Spiritual Lessons | George D. Watson, 1898 Discipline
We acquire physical knowledge through our senses.... We obtain intellectual knowledge by the exercise of reason.... We gain spiritual knowledge through the operation of revealed truth and the agency of the inner spiritual being.
Preparation for Trial

November 1, 2015

Preparation for Trial | James R. Miller, 1885 Trials
There is a wide difference between being anxious about coming troubles and being prepared beforehand for troubles that may come.... Those only can truly live in quiet peace... who have already made preparation for anything that may come to them.
The Travail of Zion

July 1, 2015

The Travail of Zion | Beverly Carradine, 1910 Salvation
Travail is one of the sharpest pains known in the physical realm.... [God] applies it to the church, and says that such a suffering, burden, and agonizing cry must come on His people, before sons and daughters are born unto Him.
Why Weepest Thou?

April 1, 2015

Why Weepest Thou? | Beverly Carradine, 1899 Hope
Of all the things that He might have said, perhaps no more beautiful, blessed, needful, and significant speech could have been made by Him to His sorrowing disciples—and, beyond them, to the struggling, battling Church in all ages, and even to the sinful world itself.
“At Thy Word, I Will”

August 15, 2016

“At Thy Word, I Will” | James R. Miller, 1904 Obedience
Many people suffer from the ignorance of those whom they trust as guides. But in Jesus Christ we have a Leader who never errs in wisdom. He never gives wrong advice. He is never mistaken in His decision as to what we ought to do.
Heavenly Wisdom in Saving Souls

October 1, 2016

Heavenly Wisdom in Saving Souls | Daniel S. Warner, 1887 Wisdom
The best convincer that we are "the seed which the Lord hath blessed," is the actual fruit of salvation, the real deliverance of men from the power of sin, and the manifestation of the virtues of a holy life. Aim directly at getting men and women saved.
Homeless at Christmas

December 15, 2016

Homeless at Christmas | Jon Kropf, 2016 Christmas
My nervous mind immediately thought of our car. Had I locked the door?... It's not that I begrudge homeless people of a warm house or good food, but I suspect that they choose their lifestyle and somehow want to be unclean.
Shall We Worry?

November 20, 2016

Shall We Worry? | James R. Miller, 1888 Comfort
A practical piece of homely, common-sense wisdom says that there are two kinds of things we should not worry about—things we can help, and things we cannot. Evils we can help we ought to help.... But there are things we cannot help....
Surmounting Barriers to Faith

April 15, 2016

Surmounting Barriers to Faith | George D. Watson, 1894 Perseverance
Her quest was not yet over. For we now see four great barriers her faith had yet to surmount; namely, divine silence, human coldness, class, and humiliation. If we look at these in detail, we find that they illustrate the vital issues in many lives today.
The Blessing of Weakness

March 15, 2016

The Blessing of Weakness | James R. Miller, 1894 Weakness
Too many people think their weakness is a barrier to their usefulness, or make it an excuse for doing little with their life. Instead of this, however, if we give it to Christ, He will transform it into strength.
The Sympathy of Christ

September 1, 2016

The Sympathy of Christ | James R. Miller, 1904 Comfort
Christ in heaven sympathizes with His friends on the earth in all their experiences.... We believe all this as a doctrine, but what meaning has it for us in our own lives? What is Christ in heaven to us in a personal, practical way?
Wedded Life

February 1, 2016

Wedded Life | James R. Miller, 1882 Marriage
Married life is meant to be the happiest, fullest, purest, richest life. It is God's own ideal of completeness. It was when He saw that it was not good for man to be alone, that woman was made and brought to him to supply what was lacking.
Ye Are the Branches

July 1, 2016

Ye Are the Branches | Andrew Murray, 1897 Abiding
"I, the Vine, have taken you to be My branches.... I have surrendered Myself as God absolutely to you; I became Man and died for you that I might be entirely yours. Come and surrender yourselves entirely to be Mine."
El Shaddai: The God Who Is Enough

July 1, 2017

El Shaddai: The God Who Is Enough | Albert B. Simpson, 1897 Faith
It may be that this is just where some of us are standing today. We have been trusting God in part and have been trying to do the other part ourselves, and God is speaking to us... "I am the Almighty God; walk before me and be thou perfect."
In Our Father's Hands

June 1, 2017

In Our Father’s Hands | James R. Miller, 1903 Assurance
When Jesus said, "My Father is the husbandman," He was communicating to His disciples that the care of their lives is in the hands of God, whose name is Love.... There is no "chance"—all things are under control of God's infinite wisdom and love.
Loving and Hating One's Life

February 1, 2017

Loving and Hating One’s Life | James R. Miller, 1896 Ministry
It seemed a waste of precious life when Jesus died so young, and in such shame.... He lost His life, but that seed became the world's hope and joy. We understand it now. Christianity is the outcome of that "waste." Heaven is the fruit of the Redeemer's sacrifice.
One with Christ

May 1, 2017

One with Christ | J. Hudson Taylor, 1869 Communion
When my agony of soul was at its height, a sentence in a letter from dear McCarthy was used to remove the scales from my eyes, and the Spirit of God revealed the truth of our oneness with Jesus as I had never known it before.
Remembering Christ's Birth

December 1, 2017

Remembering Christ’s Birth | Mark P. Spinks, 2017 Christmas
Each of the characters God used in recording the events around Jesus' birth have their precious story.... God's dealings with each of these Bible figures offers a wealth of insights that He will apply to our own lives if we take the time to study and ponder.
Wineskins for New Wine

September 1, 2017

Wineskins for New Wine | Tyler A. Schones, 2017 Holy Spirit
God's kingdom isn't outward, so we can't put outward definitions on it.... It's about God moving and working. He's a living, active God. So a certain outward form might have been good for a season, but He might want to change things in the future.
Even unto the Death

April 1, 2018

Even unto the Death | Andrew Murray, 1900 Submission
All through His life He had been "in all points tempted like as we are".... In this last hour of the powers of darkness they make one great assault on the very citadel of His being, and seek to tempt Him with the sorest of all temptations... the assertion of our self-will.
Finding the Way

March 1, 2018

Finding the Way | James R. Miller, 1904 Guidance
We have the privilege to pray, "Show me the way I should go," and expect to be answered. There will be a hand extended to guide us, to open the path for us, and to help us over the hard pinches of the road.
From Immaturity to Maturity

December 1, 2018

From Immaturity to Maturity | Micah P. Hozen, 2018 Youth
Newborn lambs are totally dependent.... eventually... they'll be mature enough to be fruitful. In the same way, God has planned that immature, newborn baby lambs in His church will grow into mature, productive, fruitful sheep in the pasture of God, in His fold.
Having the Mind of Christ

October 1, 2018

Having the Mind of Christ | James R. Miller, 1903 Consecration
We say we want to be like Christ.... But what do we mean by being like Christ? Are we not in danger of getting into our vision of it, merely an easy kind of life, a gentle piety, a dainty charity, a fashionable holiness, a pleasing service?
Jesus' Friendships

July 1, 2018

Jesus’ Friendships | James R. Miller, 1910 Friendship
Some have suggested that a colony be established that would exclude all ignorant and obnoxious people. That was not the thought of Christ in founding His church.... He was a friend to the worst, that He might make them fit to be among the best.
Jesus Himself

September 1, 2018

Jesus Himself | Andrew Murray, 1893 Jesus/Savior
Perhaps there are some who... are not yet truly satisfied with what they have. If you throw open your heart and give up everything but just believing and allowing Him to do what He wants.... Jesus will reveal Himself.
“Look unto Me, and Be Saved”

February 1, 2018

“Look unto Me, and Be Saved” | Charles H. Spurgeon, 1897 Invitation
I sometimes think I might have been in darkness and despair until now had it not been for the goodness of God in sending a snowstorm, one Sunday morning, while I was going to a certain place of worship. When I could go no further, I turned down a side street....
More than Conquerors

May 1, 2018

More than Conquerors | Albert B. Simpson, 1890 Warfare
Are we looking upon our spiritual adversaries and obstacles as things that have come, not to crush us, but to be cast down for the honor and glory of our Captain's cause? Thus shall we be "more than conquerors through him that loved us."
The Salvation of All

August 1, 2018

The Salvation of All | Andrew Murray, 1900 Salvation
If we only knew God and His love, how we would look upon every person we see as one... for whom [He] longs. We would begin to wonder at the mystery of grace that has taken the Church... as a partner in the great work of making that love known.
Apprehending God

June 1, 2019

Apprehending God | Aiden W. Tozer, 1948 Vision
We apprehend the physical world by exercising the faculties given us for the purpose, and we possess spiritual faculties by means of which we can know God and the spiritual world if we will obey the Spirit's urge and begin to use them.
Giving Up the Right to Our Standard of Living

April 1, 2019

Giving Up the Right to Our Standard of Living | Mabel R. Williamson, 1957 Missionary
Most of us like things the way we are used to having them.... What is to be our attitude on the mission field? Are we free to try to have things the way we would like them...? Or ought we to attempt... to conform to the way of life of the people among whom we live?
Go Forward

January 1, 2019

Go Forward | James R. Miller, 1908 Growth
There is always danger that we become contented with our routine, and indisposed to go beyond it.... But, besides this monotonous round... there should always be something larger going on. "You have gone around this mountain long enough: turn northward."
Lord, Teach Us to Pray

February 1, 2019

Lord, Teach Us to Pray | Andrew Murray, 1886 Prayer
Come, my brothers and sisters! Shall we not go to the Blessed Master and ask Him anew to enroll our names too in that school which He always keeps open for those who long to continue their studies in the Divine art of prayer and intercession?
Obedience That Pleases Christ

August 1, 2019

Obedience That Pleases Christ | James R. Miller, 1905 Obedience
The most triumphant word anyone can say at the end of his life is, "I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do." And it is the only way to receive the approving verdict, "Well done, good and faithful servant... enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
One Thing I Do

May 1, 2019

One Thing I Do | James R. Miller, 1904 Work
If in our hearts the great master purpose is to live for Christ only, we will grow continually away from all that is worldly and unworthy, toward things which are spiritual and Divine. Paul describes himself as "...stretching forward to the things which are before."
Over-Waiting for God

March 1, 2019

Over-Waiting for God | James R. Miller, 1896 Warning
There are times when closet prayer is not the duty of the hour.... We may think we are honoring God by waiting... but really we are dishonoring Him by lack of present faith and ready obedience. Blessing... cannot be given to us until we go forth to get it.
The Joy of the Lord

September 1, 2019

The Joy of the Lord | Albert B. Simpson, 1890 Joy
His great salvation is inseparably linked with a rejoicing spirit. True, it can stoop to sorrow; it will enter the saddest home and the darkest midnight, but it cannot dwell with gloom. It must banish sorrow as well as sin, and live in the light of joy.
When the Song Begins

July 1, 2019

When the Song Begins | James R. Miller, 1905 Joy
What is the secret? When does the song begin? What is it that gives to the believer in God this quenchless joy? In the record of the opening of the temple by Hezekiah we find a sentence which suggests the answer.
