“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 […]

The law presupposes the separate self to obey it. The fact that we see the law outside us as something we have to attain to, something which we are not now but should or ought to be, is our perpetual admission that we are lawbreakers and in separation from God. In this separation, we can […]

The cross of our Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest mystery of divine wisdom and Almighty power, of eternal love and super-abounding grace, which could ever have been displayed before the eyes of men or angels. I call it a mystery, not only as incomprehensible by natural intellect, but because the very essence of a […]

“O wretched man that I am!” cried Paul, “who shall deliver me from this body of death?” (Ro 7:24) There is nothing more musical in the ears of the Lord. This cry is the most spiritual and the most scriptural cry a man can utter. He only utters it when he knows he can do […]

“My Children, You all hold hands round ‘the table’ and you give thanks for the food, that I have prepared for you, (that you CAN see), and in doing this, you do right. Because in giving thanks you recognise that ‘ALL’ that comes to you is from MY hands. Though I do not need you […]

Christ has no body now on earth but yours; yours are the only hands with which he can do his work, yours are the only feet with which he can go about the world, yours are the only eyes through which his compassion can shine forth upon a troubled world. Christ has no body now […]

What I had trouble with from the beginning reading that, was the “absence of God.” I could not fathom it. And yet the more I let it sit there, it began to occur to me that even though there can really never be, anywhere, anytime, any place, an absence of God, yet to a creature, […]

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 […]
