I do not pretend to give such a Sum; I only lend it to you. When you […] meet with another honest Man in similar Distress, you must pay me by lending this Sum to him; enjoining him to discharge the Debt by a like operation, when he shall be able, and shall[...] read more

And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
—Mark 1:35 KJV

We too are called to withdraw at certain intervals into deeper silence and aloneness with God, together as a community as well as personally; to be alone with Him—not with our books, thoughts, and memories but completely stripped of everything—to[...] read more

Die Daily

“For the love of Christ constrains us.” (2 Corinthians 5:14)

By David Brandt Berg

What do you have a vision for? What do you have faith for? What do you yourself expect God to do this year, not next year? What can you see happening right now and from now on? What do you personally plan to do about it? What do you personally hope to do about it and want to do about it?

God’s children, those who love and believe in His Son, Jesus, are the BRIDE of Christ, the WIFE of Jesus! (See Revelation 19:7,8.) When you invited Jesus into your life, He came into your heart SPIRITUALLY like a husband comes into his wife on their wedding night, and you became ONE!

The Bible instructs us to “no longer walk as [unbelievers] walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God” (Ephesians 4:17-18). How can we become alienated from the life of God?

We become separated from the Lord when we become separated from the Word, because Jesus is the Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh,[...] read more

Fatalism!–To Pray or Not to Pray!

Based on the writings of David Berg

free-bible-studies-online-fatalism-to-pray-or-not-to-pray

Many people today have the attitude that WHATEVER happens is God’s Will, so we should just RESIGN ourselves to things.–“There’s nothing we can DO about things, so we should just ACCEPT them passively.” Such an attitude is called “fatalism”.

When “fatalists” FAIL in some project or some task, instead of getting up and continuing to fight and desperately praying that God will change things and help them[...] read more
