Intent, Not Tentative - #6789
One of Jim Elliott's mottos went like this (you ready?), "Wherever you are, be all there." Somebody may have said to you, "You're not all there." Well, yes, wherever you are, be all there. If you've got something to do anyway, why not do it with all you've got? If you've got to be there, why not be there with all your heart?
So Many Promises - #6760
You can plant both your feet on God's promises and know He will deliver. He has no unforeseen circumstances. He cannot lie. And nothing is too hard for the Lord.
You Need a Love Triangle - #6722
Before you get married, wait for someone who is joined to Jesus as you are, because it is worth the wait. And after you marry, practice His presence daily in your home. A love triangle with Jesus as that real third person is the strongest bond on earth.
Feeling Down At the Top - #6672
Life is a series of disappointing views until we give our life to the One who alone can give it eternal meaning.
Your Work and Your Worth - #6664
It's time to dig down deep into where our identity was supposed to be; being God's workmanship, the Bible says; paid for by the blood of God's Son, who thought you were worth dying for.
Lottery Fever and Other Contagious Diseases - #6663
My spiritual bankruptcy traded for His eternal treasure, because He gave it all. It was an offer I could not resist. For so many, including me, our lifetime search ended at the feet of Jesus Christ, and that's where it will end for you.
The Man With "What's Next?" - #6516
What you decide to do with Jesus even this very day could be eternally decisive. I urge you, if you're not sure you've begun your personal relationship with Jesus Christ, make this the day you get that done and to say, "Jesus, I'm Yours."
A Strong Sense of Season - #6472
I like what the Bible says in Colossians 3, "Whatever you do, do it with all your heart." And I really like what Jim Elliot, the missionary martyr said, "Wherever you are, be all there." See, things don't work as well when you do them "out of season." Each day, each week has seasons in your life. Well, do with all your heart what it's time to do at that moment and then God makes everything beautiful in its time.
Not in a Hurry - #6374
Trust your Father's timing. He does make everything beautiful in its time. Trust God's timing even if it seems late to you. God always seems to work a little more slowly than I want Him to, but He's always right on time.
Destination Sickness - #6368
Jesus walked out of His grave under His own power, so He's alive to walk into our lives and change them, and fill that hole in your heart. It doesn't have to be there any longer. Why waste any more years or days looking where there are no answers and no ultimate fulfillment?
