A P R I L 9 “So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.” — Luke 5:16

Renewing Our Strength

When was the last time you sat still and stared into space? I’m not talking about the short daydreams that float through your mind during the day. I mean true, relaxed, uninterrupted, peaceful nothingness. Have you had any of that lately? We lead busy lives, and because of our many commitments, we tend to keep going and going. We look for results in everything we do, and if we do something that produces nothing, we view the time spent... More
A P R I L 8 “Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.” — Psalm 34:3

Glorify The Lord

The doxology we sing in church summarizes well our true purpose in life: “Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.” The Westminster Catechism says that our chief end in life is to “glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” Do you ever wonder how you can glorify God? First, we honor God by giving Him the praise... More
A P R I L 7 “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” — John 12:21

When The Flame Burns Low

Do you feel a little low, as if your spiritual gas tank is on empty? Has the fire of Christ’s joy within you dwindled to an ember? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, you’re in very good company. Many people in the Bible experienced the same weariness and loss of zeal. David cried, “Restore to me the joy of Your salvation” (Psalm 51:12). Solomon said, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick” (Proverbs... More
A P R I L 6 “For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus. — 1 Timothy 2:5

One Mediator

Have you ever stood on one side of a canyon and marveled at the canyon’s depth and breadth? Can you imagine what it would take to bridge such a chasm? Our sinfulness has created an unfathomable chasm between us and God, but Christ has bridged it. He is our Mediator, the One who connects us to God the Father. How do we know this? First of all, Jesus said so. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the... More
A P R I L 5 “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” — 1 Corinthians 13:13

Faith, Hope, And Love

Faith. What a magnificent thing it is to have faith in God. Faith lifts us to new heights. Do you believe that God is with you, that He will never leave you, that He will help you, that He will turn everything for your good? What a tremendous difference to know that you’re a child of the King, a member of the House Royal; that you will live forever; and that God will do great things through you. Hope. How marvelous to have hope. Do... More
A P R I L 4 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” — Philippians 4:13

Being A Positive Person

Every time you open your mouth, think a thought, express an attitude, or take an action, you have a choice to do something positive or negative. Which do you most often choose? Years ago, Art Linkletter encountered a little boy with an extremely positive attitude. On his television program, Linkletter asked the six-year-old boy, “Do you know why you were selected to be on my program?” The little boy said quite confidently,... More
A P R I L 3 “. . . for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind . . . he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” — James 1:6, 8

Avoiding Negativity

Have you ever heard the old song, “You gotta accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative, and don’t mess with Mr. In-Between?” Today, let’s talk about how we can avoid negative thinking, because if we harbor negative thoughts, sooner or later they’ll destroy our lives. One day a man tried to start his car with a jumper cable. Instead of connecting the correct part of the cable... More
