A Message of Repentance

June 23rd

In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, and saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

A promise and a prayer

June 22nd

I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly. Psalm 119:8 In this verse, we see a promise and a prayer. The promise is, "I will keep thy statutes." There is a determination in those words, a purposefulness, an intentionality that is often lacking in our pursuit of holiness. My friend, you …

The gospel in a verse

June 21st

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:6 Here is the gospel in one sentence, and in an Old Testament prophet no less! First, we are told of our sin: "all we like sheep have gone astray; we have …

Wherein we rejoice

June 20th

Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations. 1 Peter 1:6 In what did these elect exiles rejoice?

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 This is perhaps one of the most comprehensive and comforting promises in all …

A very quick battle

June 17th

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark …

Riches of the glory of God's inheritance

June 16th

Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of …

Calling sinners to repentance

June 15th

But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.   But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Matthew 9:12-13 In the previous paragraph …

Praying always in the Spirit

June 14th

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. Eph. 6:18 In this verse, we see that there are four universals that are supposed to characterize our prayer life: we are to pray with all prayer, at all …
