Meekness
Refreshment in Refuge' from Gina Burgess
Originally posted Nov 18, 2018

“Moses.” “Yes, LORD?” “I saw where it was written about you that you are the meekest man upon the whole of the face of the earth. Why did you write this about yourself? Isn’t that being a bit prideful?” “Well, Father, I would like… [read more]

Originally posted Nov 18, 2018

 What do you want? John 5:12-13 They asked him, Who is the Man Who told you, Pick up your bed and walk? Now the invalid who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had quietly gone away [had passed on unnoticed], since there was a crowd in the place.   I find it interesting that the man that… [read more]

Benjamin Spock once said (or was it Mr. Spock on Star Trek), "Trust Yourself. You know more than you think."

 We all know that the Garden of Eden was paradise. No sin. No sadness. No error. Until, of course, that crafty serpent (Gen 3:1) came along. What was it that got us thrown under the bus? It wasn't that the serpent was merely making suggestions. It wasn't that the serpent had some good ideas. It wasn't… [read more]

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"

"And they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus." - Acts 4:13 A Christian should be a striking likeness of Jesus Christ.

Morning / Evening Devotional — November 20
Daily Light on the Daily Path

When I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour. — I will… — (413-388-8880)

Hunger Satisfied
Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"

Devotional for 'Kislev 12'
Voice of the Lord

Do you ever sit down to pray and experience a loss of words? Over the years I have found that reciting passages of Scripture almost always gets the gears grinding in my mind and heart. It wakes up the inner man (who is sometimes snoozing) and prepares the way for times of intimate fellowship with the Lord. Speaking and pondering God's Word prepares the… — (click here to read more)

The Great Official

I love football. No, not soccer. And not rugby or that stuff they play with Australian rules that is a combination of rugby and football without the pads. I love football, American style.

"Not on Trial"
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

We continue reflecting on the thought that Jesus Christ is not like anyone else who has ever lived. Take the claim which He made in our text today: "One greater than the temple is here."

Done away with

Done away with - This is the Greek verb katarego. The root verb means, "to make inactive, ineffective and useless". Paul adds kata as an intensifier. The verb is very forceful.

Morning / Evening Devotional — November 20
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

Some of you will object to my saying this, but it is my opinion that in Christianity we have over-emphasized the psychology of the lost sinner's condition.

My peace I give unto you. - John 14:27

My peace I give unto you. - John 14:27

Peace is an invaluable blessing, it is the gift of Jesus. None but believers know the sweetness of the peace He bestows. He made it by shedding His blood.

He proclaims it in the everlasting gospel. He bestows it upon us when we believe, and it is enjoyed in the heart under the influence of the Holy Spirit.…
