|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.

|Was the Devil Ever in Heaven? | Ostis B. Wilson, Jr., 1970||Devil/Demons|
Jesus taught His disciples to say when praying, "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." Now, if angels in heaven sinned, then God's will was not done in heaven.

|Water Baptism | Frederick G. Smith, 1914||Ordinances|
I wish it were in my power to arouse the millions who are sleeping under the delusion that they were really baptized when they were babes and are therefore Christians. Unless such become awakened... they will all be lost forever.

|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.

|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.

|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."

|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.

|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.

|Would Our Way Be Better? | James R. Miller, 1903||Submission|
Would it be better if we could direct all our own affairs?... If we could do so, no doubt many of our circumstances would be quite different.... We would have only prosperities, with no adversities; only joys, with no sorrows. We would exclude all pain and trouble from our life.
