Daily Devotionals  from

Do Ye Now Believe?
Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"

Now we believe. Jesus says - Do you? The time is coming when you will leave Me alone. Many a Christian worker has left Jesus Christ alone and gone into work from a sense of duty, or from a sense of need arising out of his own particular discernment. The reason for this is the absence of the resurrection life of Jesus. The…… — (click here to read more)

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"

"For my strength is made perfect in weakness." - 2 Corinthians 12:9 A primary qualification for serving God with any amount of success, and for doing God's work well and triumphantly, is a sense of our own weakness. When God's warrior marches forth to battle, strong in his own might, when he boasts,…… — (click here to read more)

God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. God ... hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and… — (click here to read more)

Real Estate in Heaven
Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"

"Knowing in yourselves that ye have in Heaven a better and an enduring substance."   Hebrews 10:34 This is well. Our substance here is very unsubstantial; there is no substance in it.

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

Consistency. It is the one commodity that so many desire yet so many lack. Consistency in golf means the difference between making millions of dollars playing the game and, well, preaching for a living. Every time I hit a perfect drive down the middle of the fairway I think, "Why can't I do that every time?" If…… — (click here to read more)

The power of holiness

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Confidence - From two Greek words meaning "all" and "speaking", parresias means "freedom in the act of speaking".

Morning / Evening Devotional — February 28
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

When our faith becomes obedience to our Savior, then it is true faith, indeed! The difficulty we modem Christians face is not misunderstanding the Bible, but persuading our untamed hearts to accept its plain instruction.

Thy Maker is thine Husband. - Isaiah 54:5

Thy Maker is thine Husband. - Isaiah 54:5

SWEET assurance! Surprising condescension. Does Jesus, by whom all things were made, fill this sweet relation? Is He my nearest and dearest relative? Yes: He loves thee more than any other.

He is the Bridegroom, thou art the bride;…
