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.

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 […]
