|Foundation Truth, Number 6 (Spring 2002) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2002||Humility|
Acknowledgment of truth is the first and vital step to getting help. This truth runs contrary to the philosophy of influence... the skill of easing people into a better condition. The way of the cross is the way of acknowledgment—it is a stark confrontation.

|Fellowship Is of the Spirit | Jennie C. Rutty, 1900||Fellowship|
A great many... have only an intellectual understanding without an actual experience in the soul. They... are often received as the children of God by those who do not discern between the "fellowship of the Spirit" and a mere fellowship of doctrine.

|Adventures in the Land of Canaan | Robert L. Berry, 1924||Sanctification|
"All things" means all things. The Christian who gives up all is certain of God's continual care and protection. He cannot expect to escape trouble or trial or temptation; but he is kept in these things.... They may be hurt... but they will sail on in peace in God.

|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.

|Loaded Words | George D. Watson, 1896||Holy Spirit|
All words are loaded with the quality of the soul out of which they proceed. It is eternally impossible for God to utter one word that is not loaded with divinity; and... it is impossible for the devil to utter one word which does not, in some way, contain a lie.

|Foundation Truth, Number 29 (Winter 2012) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2011||Light|
...a man is still a man... still just an earthen vessel.... When God has finished beating the mountains small with a worm, then that worm is still a worm—a worm used of God.... "When the work of the Lord is done right, there is no room for the flesh to glory."

|Foundation Truth, Number 23 (Autumn 2009) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2009||Temptation|
A man who prays can spiritually afford to be generous. He can afford to let others have the last word. He can afford to appear inferior in argument. Abram knew that God would take care of him regardless, so he could afford to be generous.

|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....

|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."

|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.

As he lay thus... he was startled by the sight of a man's shadow on the side of the tent. He lay still and listened. Soon he heard low muttering voices a few rods from his tent. Still he listened. They drew nearer and nearer. Finally the mutterings became whisperings.

|The Hidden Life | Charles E. Orr, 1908||Experience|
A walk with God is a satisfactory walk. He who walks with God is delighted all the way.... In God's ways there are no disappointments. When our wills are submitted to Him and we humbly and submissively walk where He leads us, we meet with no disappointments.
