    God’s Holy Fire: ‘Eternal Consequences’
    Key Thought
    What was the power behind Jesus’ ministry? Some critics say it was deception. Some skeptics say it was people’s imagination. Some even attributed his power to demons and the devil. It’s one thing to disbelieve. It’s another to believe in spiritual power and then attribute Jesus’ spiritual power…[Read more]

    Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! –Isaiah 30:18

    Hay, Wood And Stubble
    The Bible says that our works may be burned up as hay, wood, and stubble, and only those things done for Christ alone will pass through the fire.

    Knowing Christ
    When Jesus was speaking to a large crowd, He wanted to make sure that they not only listened to His words, but they did what He said. For example, Jesus warned that…[Read more]

    Verse of the Day
    Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
    Of all the names for God in the Bible, this is my favorite: “Him who is Able to Do Immeasurably More.” Our God is the same God who parted the Red Sea and fed 5,000 on a green hillside with only a couple of sardine sandwiches. He longs to do more than we can ask or imagine! Unfortunately most of us…[Read more]

    Listening to the Father’s Heart – July 7
    by Os Hillman

    Son, I give you visions on the mountain, but lead you down to the valley to work out those visions. It is in this valley that so many of my sons and daughters faint and give up. Every vision I give will be made real if you have patience. I am never in a hurry, because the vision needs to…[Read more]

    Lord, I stand in need of Your forgiveness–not for what I’ve done this time, Lord, but for what I haven’t done. Many times in the past, Lord, I’ve chosen the pathway of least resistance; the easy way out. I have chosen silence and disengagement when I…[Read more]

    Listening to the Father’s Heart – June 29
    by Os Hillman

    Son, I see self-righteousness and prideful judgment in the hearts of my sons and daughters. It seems that adultery has become the unpardonable sin among my people, and the one justification for unforgiveness to divorce their mate. I have never encouraged this. If they could see the depth of…[Read more]
