It takes the Resurrected, Reigning, Creative, Redeeming Life of our Lord Jesus Christ being lived ‘IN’ us ‘AS’ us to please our Father God. “Be ye therefore Perfect even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect.” Matthew 5:48. We can never attain The-Christ-Life, only Christ can and must Live it for us! Norman […]

We do not start our Christian lives by working out our faith for ourselves; it is mediated to us by Christian tradition, in the form of sermons, books and established patterns of church life and fellowship. We read our Bibles in the light of what we have learned from these sources; we approach Scripture with […]

Luke 10:42 …Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” If Jesus comes to your home, what would you do? Would you ask Him to sit down and then start serving Him? Or would you sit down and start drawing from Him? Would you let Him serve you and […]

My different repentance experiences have been as follows: From New Age to Jesus. That was a relief because I didn’t have to save myself any longer. From law to grace. […]

How is it that after two thousand years of meditation on Jesus Christ we’ve managed to avoid everything that he taught so unequivocally? This is true of every Christian denomination, even those who call themselves orthodox or doctrinally pure. We are all “cafeteria Christians.” All of us have evaded some major parts of the Sermon […]

Many catchwords are used by God’s people, both Scriptural and home-made, to express the highest aims of their goal in God: some speak of the fullness of the Spirit, or entire sanctification, or power for service, or the baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire, or full salvation, or victorious living.
