Insight Not Emotion
      “I have to lead my life in faith, without seeing Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 For a time we are conscious of God's attentions, then, when God begins to use us in His enterprises, we take on a pathetic look and talk of the trials and the difficulti ... read more

Inspired Invincibility
      “Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me.” Matthew 11:29 "Whom the Lord loveth, He chasteneth." How petty our complaining is! Our Lord begins to bring us into the place where we can have communion with Him, and we groan and say - "O Lord, le ... read more

Instant In Season
      “Be instant in season, out of season.” 2 Timothy 4:2 Many of us suffer from the morbid tendency to be instant "out of season." The season does not refer to time, but to us - 'Be instant in season, out of season," whether we feel like it or ... read more

Instantaneous And Insistent Sanctification
      “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 When we pray to be sanctified, are we prepared to face the standard of these verses? We take the term sanctification much too lightly. Are we prepared for what sanctifica ... read more

Interest Or Identification?
      “I have been crucified with Christ.” Galatians 2:20 The imperative need spiritually is to sign the death warrant of the disposition of sin, to turn all emotional impressions and intellectual beliefs into a moral verdict against the disposition ... read more

Intimate With Jesus
      “Have I been so long with you, and yet hast thou not known Me?” John 14:9 These words are not spoken as a rebuke, nor even with surprise; Jesus is leading Philip on. The last One with whom we get intimate is Jesus. Before Pentecost the discipl ... read more

Is God's Will My Will?
      “This is the will of God, even your sanctification.” 1 Thessalonians 4:3 It is not a question of whether God is willing to sanctify me; is it my will? Am I willing to let God do in me all that has been made possible by the Atonement? Am I will ... read more

Is He Really Lord?
      “… so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus.” Acts 20:24 Joy means the perfect fulfilment of that for which I was created and regenerated, not the successful doing of a thing. The joy ... read more

Is It Not In The Least Likely?
      “For Joab had turned after Adonijah, though he turned not after Absalom.” 1 Kings 2:28 Joab stood the big test, he remained absolutely loyal and true to David and did not turn after the fascinating and ambitious Absalom, but yet to wards the e ... read more

Is Your Hope In God Faint And Dying?
      “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose imagination is stayed on Thee.” Isaiah 26:3 Is your imagination stayed on God or is it starved? The starvation of the imagination is one of the most fruitful sources of exhaustion and sapping in a wor ... read more

Is Your Imagination Of God Starved?
      “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things.” Isaiah 40:26 The people of God in Isaiah's day had starved their imagination by looking on the face of idols, and Isaiah made them look up at the heavens, that is, he made ... read more

Isn't There Some Misunderstanding?
      “Let us go into Judea. His disciples say unto Him … Goest Thou thither again?” John 11:7-8 I may not understand what Jesus Christ says, but it is dangerous to say that therefore He was mistaken in what He said. It is never right to think that ... read more

It Is Finished
      “I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do.” John 17:4 The Death of Jesus Christ is the performance in history of the very Mind of God. There is no room for looking on Jesus Christ as a martyr; His death was not something that happen ... read more

It Is The Lord!
      “Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God.” John 20:2 "Give Me to drink." How many of us are set upon Jesus Christ slaking our thirst when we ought to be satisfying Him? We should be pouring out now, spending to the last limit, ... read more

Judgment On The Abyss Of Love
      “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God.” 1 Peter 4:17 The Christian worker must never forget that salvation is God's thought, not man's; therefore it is an unfathomable abyss. Salvation is the great thought of God ... read more

Justification By Faith
      “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.” Romans 5:10 I am not saved by believing; I realize I am saved by believing. It is not repentance tha ... read more

Leave Room For God
      “But when it pleased God…” Galatians 1:15 As workers for God we have to learn to make room for God - to give God "elbow room." We calculate and estimate, and say that this and that will happen, and we forget to make room for God to come in a ... read more

Let Us Keep To The Point
      “My eager desire and hope being that I may never feel ashamed, but that now as ever I may do honour to Christ in my own person by fearless courage.” Philippians 1:20 My Utmost for His Highest. "My eager desire and hope being that I may never ... read more

Liberty On The Abyss Of The Gospel
      “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free.” Galatians 5:1 A spiritually minded man will never come to you with the demand - "Believe this and that;" but with the demand that you square your life with the standar ... read more

Look Again And Consecrate
      “If God so clothe the grass of the field … shall He not much more clothe you?” Matthew 6:30 A simple statement of Jesus is always a puzzle to us if we are not simple. How are we going to be simple with the simplicity of Jesus? By receiving His ... read more

Look Again And Think
      “Take no thought for your life.” Matthew 6:25 A warning which needs to be reiterated is that the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lust of other things entering in, will choke all that God puts in. We are never free fro ... read more

Make A Habit Of Having No Habits
      “For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful.” 2 Peter 1:8 When we begin to form a habit we are conscious of it. There are times when we are conscious of becoming virtuous and patient and godly, but it ... read more

Mastery Over The Believer
      “Ye call Me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.” John 13:13 Our Lord never insists on having authority; He never says - Thou shalt. He leaves us perfectly free - so free that we can spit in His face, as men did; so free that we can ... read more

Missionary Munitions
      “When thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.” John 1:48 We imagine we would be all right if a big crisis arose; but the big crisis will only reveal the stuff we are made of, it will not put anything into us. "If God gives the call, of cour ... read more

Missionary Predestinations
      “And now, saith the Lord, that formed me from the womb to be His servant.” Isaiah 49:5 The first thing that happens after we have realized our election to God in Christ Jesus is the destruction of our prejudices and our parochial notions and o ... read more

Moral Decision About Sin
      “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.” Romans 6:6 Co-Crucifixion. Have I made this decision about sin - that it must be killed right out in me? ... read more

Moral Divinity
      “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection.” Romans 6:5 Co-Resurrection. The proof that I have been through crucifixion with Jesus is that I have a decided likeness ... read more

Moral Dominion
      “Death hath no more dominion over Him … in that He liveth, He liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God.” Romans 6:9-11 Co-Eternal Life. Eternal life was the life which Jesus Christ exhi ... read more

Must I Listen?
      “And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.” Exodus 20:19 We do not consciously disobey God, we simply do not heed Him. God has given us His commands; there they are, but we do no ... read more

My Joy . . . Your Joy
      “That My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” John 15:11 What was the joy that Jesus had? It is an insult to use the word happiness in connection with Jesus Christ. The joy of Jesus was the absolute self-surrender and sel ... read more

My Joy . . . Your Joy
      “That My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” John 15:11 What was the joy that Jesus had? It is an insult to use the word happiness in connection with Jesus Christ. The joy of Jesus was the absolute self-surrender and sel ... read more

Neck Or Nothing
      “Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him … and did cast himself into the sea.” John 21:7 Have you ever had a crisis in which you deliberately and emphatically and recklessly abandoned everything? It ... read more

Not A Bit Of It!
      “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 Our Lord never nurses our prejudices, He mortifies them, runs clean athwart them. We imagine that God has a special interest in our particular prej ... read more

Not By Might Nor By Power
      “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.” 1 Corinthians 2:4 If in preaching the Gospel you substitute your clear knowledge of the way of salvation for confid ... read more

Now Don't Hurt The Lord!
      “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip?” John 14:9 Our Lord must be repeatedly astounded at us - astounded at how un-simple we are. It is opinions of our own which make us stupid, when we are simple we are n ... read more

Now This Explains It
      “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us.” John 17:21 If you are going through a solitary way, read John 17, it will explain exactly why you are where you are - Jesus has prayed that ... read more

Obedience
      “His servants ye are to whom ye obey.” Romans 6:16 The first thing to do in examining the power that dominates me is to take hold of the unwelcome fact that I am responsible for being thus dominated. If I am a slave to myself, I am to blame be ... read more

One of God's Great Don'ts
      Fret not thyself, it tendeth only to evil doing. (Psalm 37:8 R.V.) Fretting means getting out at elbows mentally or spiritually. It is one thing to say "Fret not," but a very different thing to have such a disposition that you find yourself able not ... read more

Our Lord's Surprise Visits
      “Be ye therefore ready also.” Luke 12:40 The great need for the Christian worker is to be ready to face Jesus Christ at any and every turn. This is not easy, no matter what our experience is. The battle is not against sin or difficulties or ci ... read more

Partakers Of His Sufferings
      “Rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings.” 1 Peter 4:13 If you are going to be used by God, He will take you through a multitude of experiences that are not meant for you at all, they are meant to make you useful in His h ... read more

Personality
      “That they may be one, even as we are one.” John 17:22 Personality is that peculiar, incalculable thing that is meant when we speak of ourselves as distinct from everyone else. Our personality is always too big for us to grasp. An island in th ... read more

Placed In The Light
      “If we walk in the light, as He is in the light the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7 To mistake conscious freedom from sin for deliverance from sin by the Atonement is a great error. No man knows what sin is ... read more

Prayer Choice And Prayer Conflict
      “When thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and pray to thy Father which is in secret.” Matthew 6:6 Jesus did not say - Dream about thy Father in secret, but pray to thy Father in secret. Prayer is an effort of will. After we have entered our s ... read more

Prayer In The Father's Hearing
      “Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast heard Me.” John 11:41 When the Son of God prays, He has only one consciousness, and that consciousness is of His Father. God always hears the prayers of His Son, and if the Son of God is formed in me the Fa ... read more

Prayer In The Father's Honour

Prayer In The Father's House
      Wist ye not that I must be in My Father's house?" ” Luke 2:49 Our Lord's childhood was not immature man-hood; our Lord's childhood is an eternal fact. Am I a holy innocent child of God by identification with my Lord and Saviour? Do I look ... read more

Programme Of Belief
      “Believest thou this?” John 11:26 Martha believed in the power at the disposal of Jesus Christ, she believed that if He had been present He could have healed her brother; she also believed that Jesus had a peculiar intimacy with God and that w ... read more

Pull Yourself Together
      “Yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.” Romans 6:13-22 I cannot save and sanctify myself; I cannot atone for sin; I cannot redeem the world; I can not make right what is wrong, pure what is impure, holy what is unholy. Th ... read more

Quench Not The Spirit
      “Quench not the Spirit.” 1 Thessalonians 5:19 The voice of the Spirit is as gentle as a zephyr, so gentle that unless you are living in perfect communion with God, you never hear it. The checks of the Spirit come in the most extraordinarily ge ... read more
