What is our Centre?

One might think that with the Bible as the centre of Christianity, the unity of Christians could be easily realized. Unfortunately, this has not proved to be true. This inability of Scripture to unify the Lord’s people proves that the letter of the Bible cannot really replace the living Christ as the centre of our […]

4 Thoughts

The Grace of Wonder Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder. Surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of your universe. Delight me to see how your Christ plays in ten thousand places. . .to the Father through the features of men’s faces. Each day enrapture me with your marvelous things without […]

Opposition

The religious leaders of His day made life difficult for Him. They challenged His authority (see Matthew 21:23) and tested His teachings (see Matthew 19:3). They also called Him a glutton, winebibber, friend of tax collectors and sinners (see Matthew 11:19), and blasphemer (see Mark 2:7). They said that He was demon-possessed and mad (see […]

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’, […]

Unfortunate?

Excerpt from “The Horse and His Boy” by C. S. Lewis (The boy speaking to Aslan after a terrible ordeal where he was chased by a lion and his friend Aravis was wounded by the lion, said he had been unfortunate.) The conversation: “I do not call you unfortunate,” said the Large Voice. “Don’t you […]

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 […]

An End to the Common Sense Life

The particular foolishness of the church in the past century was reason above all else. The result has been a faith stripped of the supernatural, the Christianity of tips and techniques. The commonsense life, which, as Oswald Chambers warned, can be the enemy of the supernatural life. Many of the ministries and churches I’ve known […]

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 […]

Knowing

“If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.” John 14:7 Knowing Jesus is knowing the Father. This is not only because Jesus did exactly what He saw His Father do, but Jesus was God in the flesh. The disciples didn’t realize […]

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 […]
