God is Faithful.

1Co 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. A promise full stop. Our whole Christianity is secured on this one promise; it is where our faith rests, it is our guarantee, it is our legacy. We are called ‘unto the Church of God’, […]

The Matchless Discovery

Each individual will make a matchless discovery. He will be able to cease from constantly scrutinizing the other person, judging him, condemning him, putting him in his particular place where he can gain ascendancy over him and thus doing violence to him as a person. Now he can allow the brother to exist as a […]

The Mystery of Godliness

Without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16). Godliness is a mystery! Fail to grasp this fact and you will never understand the nature of godliness. God did not create you to have just an ape-like capacity to imitate God. There would be no mystery in […]

Tired of Being for Others?

Now the danger arises of us thinking that we must rush about being not for ourselves but for others. By no means. Just go on being yourself and don’t give a thought about being for others. Just run your own life, accept yourself, be yourself, love yourself! Appreciate that you are a special person, specially […]

Living by the Life of Another

Every negative, every embarrassment, every movement of self effort, knowledge based spirituality, any leaning on anything except Christ as my life must be exposed for what it is- The Illusion of independence and the ability to BECOME more spiritual. There is only ONE holy Life. Because of my union with Jesus, I am a partaker […]

Intercession is not Prayer

“Christ Jesus … is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” – Romans 8:34. Our great High Priest has been the unique Intercessor. None but He could be a propitiation for our sins. But we also, as priests, have a law of intercession to fulfil, and this helps us to […]

Spiritual Authority (Adapted)

Man likes to build reasons as strongholds around his thought, yet these reasons must be destroyed and thought taken captive… the strongholds need to be stormed before the thought can be taken captive. If reasons are not cast aside there is no possibility of bringing man’s thought into surrender to Christ. There must come a […]

The Marriage Union

A paraphrase of Psalm 45 by Jim Parker: Lord God You have appointed Your Son Jesus as Sovereign, and anointed His head with the oil of joy, ordaining Him as King and establishing His Kingdom. He’s a King whose lips are anointed with grace, a monarch who God has blessed forever. You are a Messiah […]

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 […]

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 […]
