Lost

Many a driver is lost long before he knows he is – though rarely before his wife knows it. Many are lost before God but do not know it.

Disciples

  |  0 Comments

The greatest issue facing the world today, with all its heartbreaking needs, is whether those who, by profession or culture, are identified as “Christians” will become disciples – students, apprentices, practitioners – of Jesus Christ, steadily learning from him how to live the life of the Kingdom of the Heavens into every corner of human existence.

Fasting

  |  0 Comments

Persons well use to fating as a systematic practice will have a clear and constant sense of their resources in God… Since food has the pervasive place it does in our lives, the effects of fasting will be diffused throughout our personality. In the midst of all our needs and wants, we experience the great contentment of the child that has been weaned from its mother breast (Ps 131:2) And godliness with contentment is great gain (1 Tim 6:6)

Fasting

Fasting is one of the more important ways of practicing self-denial required of everyone who would follow Christ (Mark 16:24). iN fasting, we learn how to suffer happily as we feast on God. And it is a good lesson, because in our lives we will suffer, no matter what happens to us. Thomas a Kempis remarks: “Whosoever knows best how to suffer will keep the greatest peace. That man is conqueror of himself and lord of the world, the friend of Christ and heir of heaven.”

Joy is a pervasive sense

  |  0 Comments

Joy is a pervasive sense – not just a thought – of well-being: of overall and ultimate well-being. Its primary feeling component is delight in an encompassing good well secured. It is not the same as pleasure, though it is pleasant. It is broader and deeper than any pleasure… But for joy, all is well, even in the midst of specific suffering and loss.
