How to Whine Effectively - Part 2 of 2
The Way' from Kevin Pauley

  I can’t carry all these people by myself! The load is far too heavy! I’d rather you killed me than treat me like this. Please spare me this misery!” – Numbers 11:14 -15 We saw how the Israelites were condemned by God for their arrogant whining. But just nine verses later, Moses… [read more]

It Is Not You Who Speak (Matthew 10:20)
Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

The Bible is often called The Word of God. This designation sets it apart from all other books and writings. It is not generally called A Word of God, again setting it apart as unique and unlike all human productions. If this book consisting of 66 books and 1189 chapters merits this descriptor,… [read more]

Have the Courage To Correct and Receive Correction
Word from Scotland' from Sandy Shaw

In Galatians Chapter 2 and verse 11, we read of Peter coming to Antioch, and Paul opposes him, face to face. Why? Because he was in the wrong. What was the problem? Peter had been set free from eating only with Jews, but now he would not sit down at the table of the Gentiles - non-Jews - and have a meal with them. Somebody… [read more]

Faith As Righteousness
'Christ in You...'' from Dale Krebbs
Originally posted May 28, 2017

 Faith is counted as righteousness by God if it a living faith.  Abraham followed God’s instructions to sacrifice his only son. He proved his faith in a God he knew was righteous, as he raised the knife to kill his only son. Before the knife came down, God knew his faith was valid. Abraham’s… [read more]

Where were you little man?
Refreshment in Refuge' from Gina Burgess
Originally posted May 28, 2017

Job 38 has a  list of huge things that God did. Job is feeling a bit abused and a bit upset at the way things have gone for him lately. In fact Job can find no reason for the disasters that befell him, rather he found much about himself that was righteous, and outlines those things in Chapter 31. And then… [read more]

The Concept of Time
Inspiration For You' from Randy Mitchell
Originally posted May 27, 2017

  No matter how much money, education, or influence we have the one thing none of us can ever produce more of is, time. How we make use of this invisible asset determines how successful we are both, professionally and personally. God gave us all a pre-determined life clock that constantly ticks 24 hours a day. They’re… [read more]

Not a Cliche
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life' from Tom Kelley
Originally posted May 25, 2017

Golf is an interesting game.  It is a game of yards, and a game of inches.  It is a game of power, and a game of finesse.  It is a game of ability, and a game of imagination.  However, it is also a game of cliches.  No, you're not seeing things.  You read that right.  Cliches. … [read more]

Unique
'Winging It' from Stan Smith

 We live in a "diversity" world, where everything is viewed as "equal". We claim "equal rights" and "equal pay" and "racial equality" and "all genders are equal". We believe that all religions are equal, too. And, as a consequence (just like in the use of… [read more]

Fishers Follow Him
Charles Spurgeon's "Faith's Checkbook"

Treasure
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life

Remy Ledoux. If that name doesn't look familiar to you don't worry. It really shouldn't be. That is, unless you are one who fancies him or herself as a purveyor of ancient treasures.

You cannot make happiness
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

Yesterday we said that we all want to be happy - and rightly so. This is a deep-rooted instinct which God has built into us. But happiness is not something you make but something you receive. You cannot make happiness any more than you can make love. You can express love but you cannot make love. So it is with happiness.…… — (click here to read more)

Does not love
"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Does not love - Here is the Greek word agape (but as a verb) coupled with a word for "not" (me). This is a conditional "not" the "not" that depends on circumstances. It means that in the circumstances of living this person does not love. This is not about my feelings. It is about my actions.…… — (click here to read more)

Morning / Evening Devotional — May 29
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

When will men and women realize that when God calls us out He is completely faithful to call us into something better? In his faith, Abraham was against idolatry and idol-making, but that was not his crusade. Because of his faith, God led him into a promised land, into possessions and into the lineage that brought forth the Messiah. The call of God… … — (click here to read more)

And be found in Him. Philippians 3:9
The Believer's Daily Remembrancer

And be found in Him. Philippians 3:9

TO be in Christ, is to be united to Him by faith and love; and it is of the utmost importance. Apart from Christ we are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked; united to Christ, we are immensely rich; immutably safe; exalted to the highest honour; and shall appear without a fault before the throne of…
