A HUMAN VEHICLE OF THE DIVINE LIFE

"Faithful is he that calls you, who also will do it." (I Thessalonians 5:24). The One who calls you to a life of righteousness is the One who by our consent lives that life of righteousness through you! The One who calls you to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, is the On... Read More

AT HIS DISPOSAL

The moment you are redeemed through the atoning death of Christ upon the cross, you receive the Holy Spirit within your human spirit. You have "passed from death to life" - raised from the dead - and the Life which has been imparted to you by the Holy Spirit is the very Life of Christ Himself; " He ... Read More

BEING AND DOING

This is divine vocation into which you have been redeemed, as "His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works which God hath before ordained that you should walk in them" (Ephesians 2:10) can only be fulfilled in the energy and power of the One who indwells you now by His Spirit, as He wal...

CHRIST HIMSELF ­ THE CONTENT OF CHRISTIAN FAITH

There is something, which makes Christianity more than a religion, more than an ethic, and more than the idle dream of the sentimental idealist. It is this something, which makes it relevant to each one of us right now as a contemporary experience. It is the fact that Christ Himself is the very life... Read More

COMMITMENT?

The Lord Jesus Christ is the Truth, and as in all other things that pertain, unto life and godliness" (11 Peter 1:3), He is the Truth about true commitment. He was committed to the Father for all that to which the Father was committed in the Son, and He was supremely confident that the Father who dw... Read More

DEPENDENCE

To live "to and for yourself" is to "walk after the flesh"! To live "to and for Christ" is to "walk after the Spirit"! These are the two principles of human behavior. It is not just a matter of degree, it is a matter of kind; to be dominated by the "flesh" is to be dominated by the devil; and to be ... Read More

ETERNAL LIFE IS CHRIST

What is eternal life? Is it a place that you are going to when you are dead? Is it a peculiar feeling inside? If you were to ask a normal congregation, or any sort of Bible class or Sunday school in an evangelical church to define eternal life, you would be amazed at the strange answers you would ge...

EXCHANGED LIFE

Christian living is not a method or technique; it is an entirely different, revolutionary principle of life. It is the principle of an exchanged life" not I, but Christ liveth in me" (Galatians 2:20). This is all part of our Gospel - it is not the Gospel plus! We must not get our terminology wrong. ...

FREEDOM OF CHOICE

Never allow anyone to deceive you into believing that God has placed an arbitrary limitation upon the efficacy of the blood of Christ, or that there are those who cannot repent, even if they would, simply because God has deliberately placed them outside the scope of His redemptive purpose! This blas... Read More

FULLNESS IN EVERYTHING

"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing" (John 15:5). In other words, you can do no more without Him than He could do without the Father. But how much could the Father do through the Son? Everythin... Read More

HOW MUCH ARE YOU WORTH?

You cannot accomplish your own redemption, and you cannot accomplish your own sanctification! It is "according as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue" (11 Peter 1:3): faith takes wha...

I AM ­ THOU ART

It may be that your need is still that of a sinner seeking forgiveness; you need to be redeemed, and you are still trying to find your way back to God and godliness. Christ is saying to you now, as He said to His disciples of old in the Upper Room, after he was risen from the dead, "Behold my hands ... Read More

INEXHAUSTIBLE SUPPLY OF DEITY

Jesus Christ Himself is the final exegesis of all truth. He is all that we need to know about God, and He is all that we need to know about man. The Lord Jesus knew that the Father had given all things into His hands ­ that as a Man, all the illimitable resources of deity had been vested in His pers... Read More

RELIGIOUS OR CHRISTIAN?

There are few things quite so boring as being religious, but there is nothing quite so exciting as being a Christian! Most folks have never discovered the difference between the one and the other, so that there are those who sincerely try to live a life they do not have, substituting religion for Go... Read More

THE CHRISTIAN LIFE: A SHEER IMPOSSIB ILITY!

"It is not difficult for man to live the Christian life," somebody once said, it is a sheer impossibility!" A sheer impossibility, that is, without CHRIST ­ but for all that He says, you have all that He is, and that is all that it takes! The Christian life can only be explained in terms of Jesus Ch...

THE MYSTERY OF GODLINESS

Without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh" (1 Timothy 3:16). Godliness is a mystery! Fail to grasp this fact and you will never understand the nature of godliness. God did not create you to have just an ape-like capacity to imitate God. There would be no my... Read More

THE ORIGIN OF YOUR ACTIVITY

It is not the nature of what you are doing that determines its spirituality, but the origin of what you are doing. Not its nature, but its origin! There was never a moment in the life of the Lord Jesus that was without divine significance, because there was never anything He did, never anything He s... Read More

YOU MUST HAVE WHAT HE IS (LIFE) TO BE WHAT HE WAS (PERFECT)

For godliness is not the consequence of your capacity to imitate God, but the consequence of His capacity to reproduce Himself in you; not self-righteousness, but Christ-righteousness; the righteousness which is by faith ­ a faith which by renewed dependence upon God releases His divine action, to r...
