Looking Back, Looking Forward

By faith [Moses] forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible. Hebrews 11:27 Recommended Reading Exodus 2:11-25 The movie “The Fugitive” was based on the earlier TV show by the same name. Both were about a doctor falsely accused of killing his wife and his […]

God in Everything

I suddenly saw that all the time it was not I who had been seeking God, but God who had been seeking me. I had made myself the centre of my own existence and had my back turned to God. All the beauty and truth which I had discovered had come to me as a […]

Much Fruit

by Doris M. Ruscoe “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10” The difference between the Saviour and everyone who came before him was that he came to give life, but it was a life that could only come through death, his own death on […]

Crucifixion with Christ

Salvation by the cross was of all doctrines the most offensive, and the most unintelligible. That the promised Messiah would be crucified, was unto the Jew, who anticipated a triumphant king, a stumbling block; that a crucified man was the Son of God was to the Greek foolishness, for it contradicted sense and reason. Thus […]

Living With Jesus Today

When we live our ordinary, everyday life, God promises that He will live through us. We are vessels to contain Him. He moves us, urges us, motivates us to do His will, so that we can say with Paul that it is no longer we who are living but Christ who lives in us (Galatians […]

Our Passion for Him?

We stubbornly cling to the notion that we will still find a key there [Scripture] that will give us full entrance into the heart of God and WE ARE WRONG IN THAT HOPE. It can go no further than declare that “….the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (Joh 1:14), and that in Him […]

You Cannot Live in Sin

Did you know that you cannot live in sin? Well that’s exactly what Paul says in the first two verses of chapter six! He anticipates the objection that grace encourages people to sin in order to get more grace. Apparently, some had accused Paul of encouraging sin in just this way (Rom 3:8), and he […]

You Are Perfect In God’s Eyes

Hebrews 10:12, 14, KJV But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God… For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. God sees you with no flaw, spot or imperfection, so honour His Word and the finished work of His […]

Fulfil the Law? Is that all you want?

“For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things, can never by the same sacrifices year by year, which they offer continually, make perfect those who draw near” (Hebrews 10:1 NASB). The written Law is the shadow of the reality. The Reality […]
