The Law of the Spirit of Life

Is life in Christ an external set of principles which are imposed from without? Or is it a spiritual life-force dwelling within? This is the crucial issue. What is the direction of the process of change from the world’s lifestyle to the believer’s lifestyle? Is it from outside in, or from inside out? Does it […]

The Gospel

The Gospel is the call to rest, to receive the free, undeserved gift that God has given us in Christ. There is nothing man can do to earn salvation from his past, or his present acceptance and walk with God. It is, from beginning to end, the grace of God, which can only be received […]

One + Seventeen

One I AM your Lord, trust in Me and I will infuse you with My goodness. Regard Heaven as Our home and there dine with Me. Partake of My faithfulness, and be nourished with My love. Drink of My life and be satisfied. Let Me be the source of your happiness and it will be […]

One Head

Even the Bible itself is interpreted and understood in various ways, and so always becomes the centre of sectarianism. Just in the same way, dogmas and creeds cannot bring Christian unity, because human minds are not so uniformly created that they can unite in a single dogma or creed. Even our understanding of Christ Himself […]

The Real Marriage

The incomparable benefit of faith is that it unites the soul with Christ as a bride is united with her bridegroom. By this mystery, as the Apostle teaches, Christ and the soul become one flesh. And if they are one flesh and there is between them a true marriage–indeed the most perfect of all marriages, […]

God Invented Us

“God made us: invented us as a man invents an engine. A car is made to run on gasoline, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were […]

Absolute Surrender

I heard of one who had been an earnest Christian, and who spoke about the “cruel” thought of separation and death. But you do not think that, do you? What are we to think of separation and death? This: death was the path to glory for Christ. For the joy set before Him He endured […]

The Sword of Christ

Christianity does not join people together. No, it separates them, in order to unite every single individual with God. And when a person has become such that he can belong to God and to God alone, he has died away from that which usually joins people together. Every call from God is always addressed to […]

Indwelling Spirit of Christ

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. I once read of a chap on a country walk who saw a man pumping water […]

In Christ, Answer to Prayer.

Joh 17:21 That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us. The above text taken from the NKJV is expressed in the Philips version; “that they may all be one. Just as you, Father, live in me and I live […]
