By My Spirit We’re all looking for strength – strength to live in a competitive, challenging, fast-paced world. We are told that to find real power for living we should look within. We are told we have all the resources we need within us. If we can only muster that inner strength, we will make it across the hurdles of life. I don’t know about you, but I’ve come to the end of my rope more than once. I’ve been to the place of mental fatigue, physical exhaustion, and...

The Source Of Wisdom Man’s intellect seeks for peace and by nature seeks it apart from the Lord Jesus Christ. Men of education are apt, even when converted, to look upon the simplicities of the cross of Christ with too little reverence and love. They are trapped in the old net in which the Greeks were taken and have a hankering to mix philosophy with revelation. The temptation with a man of refined thought and high education is to depart from the simple truth of Christ...

My Faith is Sufficient In faith, the soul is filled with grace and blessedness. It also unites the soul with Christ like a bride to her husband.

Tears for a Troubled World The world loves to laugh. Comedians will always have an audience. People don’t like kill-joys who ruin the party. Yet Jesus says, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (Mt 5:4). He doesn’t mean that God’s people are always to be gloomy or morose.

Looking up to Heroes When I was a boy I thought like a boy. I behaved like a boy. I understood like a boy. I was deeply impressed by heroes. Mostly, they were figures from the sports world. There was Doak Walker, Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice, Sammy Baugh, Bob Waterfield, Felix “Doc” Blanchard, Johnny Lujack. I hoarded and traded baseball cards. As we grow older, our heroes change, but we don’t stop having them. Enter into my home today and it will not take long...

God’s Grace Again What would life be like if we only had one opportunity to prove ourselves on the job, at school or on the athletic field? Fewer jobs would be held. Fewer young men and women would compete in athletics. We believe in a second chance. We believe in the second chance because God made us this way. God always gives people room to turn back to Him and to accomplish the tasks He has given them. The classic example in the Bible is Jonah. When Jonah turned his...
