Jesus Christ and Him Crucified (December 1)

Jesus Christ and Him Crucified (December 1)

When we come to Christ, we come empty-handed, yielding to His decision as to our greatest need. Whatever other gifts our “wisdom” might say are more needful, we are content to receive that for which He was crucified: the forgiveness of our sins.

Entrance Into the Eternal Kingdom (November 30)

God will help us, obviously, but the process of renovating our character cannot take place without our active engagement and obedience. We must not only be willing to have our imperfections removed; we must exert ourselves in that direction.

What Should We Demand of God? (December 1)

What Should We Demand of God? (December 1)

God’s wisdom far exceeds our own, and so His gifts and His answers are not always supplied according to our timetable. When we’re faced with either God’s “inaction” or His “silence,” we need to hold our tongue and also watch our attitude.

The Cost of Things Worth Having (November 30)

Help (November 30)

I expect we are all hoping for a better year in 2021. For me, however, the completion of Obeying the Gospel and AreYouaChristian.com made this a banner year. I will always look back on 2020 with a special fondness and gratitude.
