Say Amen...
Refreshment in Refuge' from Gina Burgess

Sometimes a person just has to say "Enough." I did that yesterday, or was it the day before? I've slept since then and there is a lot on my plate that shouldn't or can't touch each other, sort of like how Monk eats his food. Normally, I love to just stir my food up and mix it all together, but… [read more]

A Messenger
'Christ in You...'' from Dale Krebbs

Do you pray for others - that God will intervene in their lives, according to a perceived need?

But could you be the answer to your own prayer for them?  Or, could you be the messenger? God… [read more]

The Way We Value Religion
Point of Reference' from Fred Price
Originally posted Jul 19, 2019

       I believe in the supposition, up to a point, that people value religion on the basis of cost.  I know that contradicts the easy-believism many espouse today and arouses the protests of faith-only believers – which I am not in disagreement.  My point being that after salvation,… [read more]

Daily Light on the Daily Path

What profit is there of circumcision? Much every way. — Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart. — If ... their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity: then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with… — (click here to read more)

Families Ties
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

Wouldn't it be nice to be related to someone famous? According to all the family legends and the way back ties, my family in Ireland were direct descendants of King Miletious of the Celts.

If only we believed
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

Ruth continues to glean in the field of Boaz, secure in the knowledge that when the barley harvest is over she will be able to stay on and participate in the wheat harvest as well.

Verily
"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Verily - The Greek word here is not Greek at all. It is a Hebrew word. And this Hebrew word is a word that we have brought over into English without translating it. The word is amen.

Morning / Evening Devotional — July 21
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

This is hard for people to face up to. Religion deteriorates just as fruit rots and just as people get old in spite of all they try to do at the drug stores. It is inevitable that we get old, and so it is with religion. It is built-in that we start to deteriorate shortly after God comes and blesses us. Look what happened to Israel. God called Israel… … — (click here to read more)

"Abide in me." John 15:4
The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

"Abide in me." John 15:4

BY nature we are without Christ and are far from Him; by grace we accept His invitation, and come to Him feeling our need of Him.
