Today's Articles

Potential
The Way' from Kevin Pauley

Just as Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness, so understand that those who have faith are Abraham's sons. Now the Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith and foretold the good news to Abraham, saying, All the nations will be blessed in you. So those who have faith… [read more]

Remind Us
Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life' from Tom Kelley

Let me just take a few more moments to continue with Jim Brown.  Back in the late '90s I took a trip to Florida to see my mom and visit my nephews Todd and Darin and their families.  I had promised Dad before he died that I would be sure to get down and see her at least a couple of times a year.  I was… [read more]

Mercy and not Sacrifice (Sept. 24, 2010)
Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

God determined the principle: “I desire mercy and not sacrifice.” (Matthew 9.13). This principle is as true today in the Christian Dispensation as it was in the two previous dispensations, the Patriarchal and Mosaical. God’s passionate desire to win man’s heart has never abated since the first… [read more]

'Winging It' from Stan Smith
Originally posted Jan 17, 2018

(There appears to have been a "Live as if" outage for a week, so I'm just giving you this one again ... in case you missed it.)

God’s Solution to Our World’s Massive Problems
Word from Scotland' from Sandy Shaw
Originally posted Jan 15, 2018

 We are reading, and studying, these opening verses of Luke Chapter 1.   Zechariah was a faithful priest in a day when there was not a lot of faithfulness around.  I wonder how many people thought, “Look at that silly old priest going away to conduct a service - and say prayers - and preach something… [read more]

Nations: Yesterday And Today
'Christ in You...'' from Dale Krebbs
Originally posted Jan 14, 2018

Nations: Yesterday And Today After God sent the worldwide flood on the earth, there were only a few humans on the whole earth…only Noah and his family.

Refreshment in Refuge' from Gina Burgess
Originally posted Jan 14, 2018

  Romans 1:18 For God's wrath is revealed from Heaven on all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, holding the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because the thing known of God is clearly known within them, for God revealed it to them. First, God makes sure that everyone has a yearning for Him. We are created in… [read more]

Christ and His Children

"When Thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed."   Isaiah 53:10 Our LORD Jesus has not died in vain.

A recital of experiences
'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes

Having spent the past days identifying the nature of the problem which almost caused the psalmist to give up, we pause today to focus on another great value of the book of Psalms - the fact that it presents its teaching in the form of a recital of experiences. We have exactly the same kind of teaching in the New Testament,…… — (click here to read more)

Morning / Evening Devotional — January 18
Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer

Pastors and churches in our hectic times are harassed by the temptation to seek size at any cost and to secure by inflation what they cannot gain by legitimate growth. The mixed multitude cries for quantity and will not forgive a minister who insists upon solid values and permanence. Many a man of God is being subjected to cruel pressure by the ill-taughtmembers… … — (click here to read more)
