Trusting Christ as Your Life, (part 2 of 4)

Here’s how trusting Christ to express His overcoming life through you works. Let’s say that you have to get a fan fastened to the small frame on the ceiling by inserting three small bolts, using one hand to hold the bolt and the fan, holding the screwdriver in your other hand, and the two other Continue Reading…

Trusting Christ as Your Life (part 1 of 4)

Here’s how trusting Christ to express His life through you works. It’s what one dear brother called “The Normal Christian Life.” The boss buzzed you on the intercom and told you to come to his office. He said that the report you had submitted for the quarter was unacceptable, and he gave you one week Continue Reading…

How Much More

Consider Paul’s statement, “For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life” (Romans 5:10). There was a time in my pilgrimage when I breezed by this verse, assuming that it referred to my future in Continue Reading…

The Normal Christian Life, (part 3 of 3)

“For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life . . .” (Colossians 3:3-4) does not record Paul’s ideas, gang. This is God speaking to you. God Himself is the Source at work through the speaker, Paul (Romans 15:18). God says in the verses above Continue Reading…

The Normal Christian Life, (part 2 of 3)

How much faith did you place in yourself to acquire salvation? None. Then why do you trust in your ability, your talent, your strength, your charisma, your education, your intellect, your beautiful earthsuit, even your spiritual gifts, to live the life that you acquired by faith? Oh, the folly of such independent living! Jesus said, Continue Reading…

The Normal Christian Life (part 1 of 3)

The normal Christian Life isn’t the norm for many Christians. The key to living the victorious Christian life is not a new spin on the old, old story; it’s normal Christianity. It’s as old as the New Testament. Experiencing normal Christianity through the week yields such a sweet, intimate, obedient relationship with God that we Continue Reading…

Cordless Christians (part 3 of 3)

As a cordless Christian (living in the false security of my own talents, strength, even spiritual gifts), I gave life the ol’ college try all week as the pressures of the world volleyed me off its walls like a racquetball. Then, praise God, it was 5:00 P.M. Friday; I had made it through another workweek. Continue Reading…

Cordless Christians, (part 2 of 3)

The secret to an overcoming life lies in understanding how to stay “plugged into Christ” moment-by-moment, as opposed to operating as if we had a rechargeable battery. Jesus called this “abiding” in Him (John 15:4). We must trash the unbiblical belief that an independent, self-reliant life is worthy of our pursuit-even noble and virtuous-and learn Continue Reading…

Cordless Christians (part 1 of 3)

Among the thousands of modern conveniences we enjoy are the cordless devices: cordless drills to cordless sanders, self-contained devices to slice your roast or trim your whiskers, portable telephones, rechargeable flashlights, ad infinitum. The principle is: Use it till its power is exhausted, return it to its “base station” for recharging, then repeat the cycle. Continue Reading…

My Anxious Thoughts

When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul. Ps. 94:19 WHEN: Not “if” my anxious thoughts multiply, but when they multiply. In other words, it is going to happen. Is this a warning or a promise or both? Lord, this is so true in my life, in every person’s life I Continue Reading…
