The Excitement of Exploring - #6013
Exploring new ground implies that you don't know exactly what you're going to encounter; how you're going to have what you need to meet whatever is on the new road. Listen to God's next statement here: "I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland."
The Biggest Mistake of All - #5977
I'll tell you, if you know that Jesus has died on the cross to pay for your sin, if you've been "into Jesus" to some extent and you remain unchanged, that is serious business. And even though you're for Jesus and you agree with Jesus, you may be missing Jesus. The only response worthy of the sacrifice He made for us is to fall on our knees and give ourselves completely to the One who gave Himself completely for us.
Being obedient… even when it hurts
A devotional from Lifetime Guarantee Ministries challenges us to think about obedience by looking at the story of Naaman. How obedient are you? And exactly what role does obedience play in your relationship with Jesus Christ?
The Trouble With Life's Great Catches - #5950
We have tried to fill a God-sized hole with things and people that can't begin to take His place. If we live like this, we'll live without peace and without meaning. If we die like this, we'll spend eternity without God and His love. He didn't leave us separated from Him. He pursued us. He sent His Son, Jesus, to sacrifice His life for yours and mine; to take the rap for all our sin, that defiant self-rule of our lives.
The Greatest Miracle Known to Man - #5930
Jesus, this name you have to believe in, means "Jehovah saves." So when you "believe in His name," you're telling Jesus that you're taking Him as your personal Rescuer from the death penalty for your sins, because He's the only One who died for them. Which brings us to the eternal life-or-death question: has there been a time when you've done that?
Tuned To The Dispatcher - #2899
God is constantly planning heavenly convergences or divine bump-ins, or divine appointments. That's you converging with a person you need or who needs you, or with the resource you've been looking for, or with some Kingdom assignment God has for you. You're job is to be Spirit-moveable - responsive to those calls from Headquarters.
Life-Saving Pain - #5921
The longer you refuse to repent of your sin, the more God is going to turn up the pain, and the higher price you're going to pay. Not because He doesn't love you, but because He does; too much to let you keep going down a road that's destroying you.
Obey my commands - a Christian perspective
How do we demonstrate our love for Christ? By obeying him--it's as simple as that. Our love for Christ should naturally lead us to serve and obey him in our lives.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, Inc. - The Simple Secret of Not Getting Sick - #8259 | Radio Program | A Life That Matters
I’m Ron Hutchcraft, and it turns out that this secret of staying physically healthy can also help us stay healthy in our relationship with Jesus—frequent washing, getting rid of the dirt we pick up during the day before it makes us sick.
The Verdict and the Penalty Are Already In - #5917
There's one verdict, and one sentence we don't have to wait for - yours and mine. The verdict and the penalty are already in. Not from a jury, but from the Judge. The Judge we must all face - God Himself. Deep down inside, we know that on the other side of our last heartbeat, which He decides by the way, we'll face our Creator. The Bible gives us a sobering warning about that: "Prepare to meet your God."
