Staying Alive

The signs of life are principally manifested by motion, action: There must be change, movement. Just so, to stay alive spiritually, we must have movement. In our lives with the Lord, there are only two directions we can move; there is no standing still. We are either moving forward or backward. When we stop making progress, we’re backsliding.

It reminds me of the story about the little boy who fell out of bed. When his mother asked him why it happened, he said, “I guess[...] read more

The Operator

Do you know how powerful your prayers are? Prayers are powered by the Spirit of God, and nothing can limit the power of the Spirit of God. It doesn’t matter if you’re praying for something big or small, or who you’re praying for or where they are. Your prayers find whomever you pray for, wherever they are. God doesn’t even have to have the address; He already knows it.

We really should pray more for others, because there are so many people we could help through our[...] read more

Let Others See Jesus in You

Jesus told His first followers, “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do” (John 14:12). And they did! Those He was speaking to at the time carried the Gospel much further than Jesus had been able to during His brief public ministry, and those they reached carried it even further.

But some Christians today look[...] read more

Many people, when they receive Jesus as their Savior, assume that they’ll immediately become very happy and all their problems will be solved. They think they’ll never have any more difficulties, but this usually isn’t the case.

When discussing the tests and trials that new Christians often face, especially those who are [...] read more

The Story of Tommy

“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). Faith can even come from hearing your word, your testimony, your witness, your letter containing the Words of God to a friend, relative, or interested party.

I’m reminded of a true story I heard when I was young, about a crippled boy named Tommy who lived in poverty with his aunt in a small third-story apartment of a run-down tenement on a busy city street. Tommy was so severely handicapped that[...] read more

Diamonds of Dust

God put on a “light show” the other day, and we were there to see it. He said a lot of things, too, and we tried to listen. I’m sure He must have shown it before, but we were all too busy to watch.

The Lord let three tiny rays of sunlight beam their way into our dark room—not through the shutter, which was obstructing the light, but through pinholes, letting it in. It’s like your life for the Lord: The smaller you are, the clearer others can see [...] read more

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which [does] so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1 KJV).

The original text of this epistle was not divided into chapters. The translators did that. So you’ve got to keep in mind the preceding chapter in order to understand what “great cloud of witnesses” Paul[...] read more
