(Excerpts of a talk given one New Year’s Eve.)

One of the best verses that you could claim for the coming year—and for the rest of your life, for that matter—is: “Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Revelation 2:10).

Some people teach that this is referring to salvation. They say, “Well, if you always do the right . . .  read more

We need to learn to save the first place in our hearts and lives and time for Jesus. We belong to Him first of all, and the first place must belong to Him—for rest and prayer and fellowship with  . . .  read more

(Written to a Christian worker who had recently undertaken a major long-term project for the Lord)

Your service for the Lord is a very great responsibility. At times it can be a heavy burden, a big job, with a lot of hard work, tension, confusion, excitement, concerns, and physical and mental stress—all of which tend to be pretty hard on you. Even the Lord Himself could not bear the strain and drain of a continual ministry to the multitudes. He frequently had to get away . . .  read more

Praise Power

My wife, Maria, was feeling very tired and had such a headache earlier today that she had become discouraged about her health. As I prayed for her, I was reminded of the verse that tells us not to be weary and faint in our minds (Hebrews 12:3 KJV). I think the Lord wanted to inspire her to have a little more fight.

Our spiritual enemy, the Devil, really fights us, but . . .  read more

The Lord had me review my whole life this morning to see how He has blessed me and taken care of me. It was like one of those near-death experiences that you hear about in which people see their whole lives in an instant, only I didn’t have to almost die to see mine.

The review started when I was practically still a baby, and it included all the outstanding things the Lord has done especially for me—experiences and accomplishments and promises that He kept. He reminded . . .  read more

Holy Holes

Where would we be without holes? Where would people be without seven holes in their heads? (Count ’em!) If it weren’t for your seven holes you couldn’t eat or taste or smell or hear or see or even breathe. And actually, you’ve got lots more holes than that, because every little pore in your skin is a hole. Without those little pores, your skin couldn’t breathe and you couldn’t sweat. Without holes, you wouldn’t have any hair either, because every hair grows . . .  read more

Go Slow–You’ll Get There Quicker

“In quietness and confidence shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30:15). The Bible doesn’t promote hurry. The only verse I can remember any preachers or anybody else using to try to make us rush was, “The king’s business required haste” (1 Samuel 21:8). But for that one Scripture, I think there must be a hundred that tell us to go slow, or words to that effect—even to take it easy.
