The-God-Behind-Everything

All of God’s great men and women have seen this world properly. Lifted above the tiny island of Self, they are blessed to breathe the rare air of self-forgetfulness as their hearts are consumed with God. C. S. Lewis describes this humility as “not thinking less of...

The Anatomy of Harbored Sin

I have watched many people, often professing believers, who have entered into serious sin—often sexual sins you thought they would never commit. How does this happen? There is a pattern. King David shows us this pattern in Psalm 36: Transgression speaks [like an...

Knowing God

“God is easy to live with,” Tozer said, and he’s right. The most amazing attribute of God to me is His willingness to be understood, His self-disclosure. He is waiting to be known. If you don’t want a relationship with someone, you go dark. You are unwilling to be...

The Diotrephes Test

“Diotrephes, who loves to be first among them ...” (3 John 9 NASB). How would you like to be the man who is immortalized in Scripture as a really bad leader? Cain, Saul, Balaam, Ananias, and Judas all fall in this category. Their lives went down in history, not as a...

What Would Your Life Be Like This Week?

As he often did at the end of his letters, Paul left the Thessalonians some rapid-fire bullets of instruction. Any one of these commands would change us. But just think of what your life would be like this week if you simply followed all four of these instructions in...

Running and Winning Your Race

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of...
