But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Reduced to Christ

Written by
The principle in John 3:30 is that I must decrease. As surely as Christ must increase, so I must decrease. It must be so; therefore it will be so.

“He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).

There are two Universal Spiritual Principles found in John 3:30 that express two very...

The Hidden Christ

Written by
Jesus, the Christ of God, did not reveal Himself to the world at large, but to a handful of disciples. We ought to ask why He did not appear upon a mountain in blinding light, or descend in a cloud, but was born into the world as a baby in a stable.

A few shepherds worshipped Him the night He was...

Worship: Person, Place or Thing?

Written by
Relationship views everything in terms of a “person.” Religion views everything in terms of “place” or “thing.”

For example, people say, “I miss corporate worship.” They are basically saying that they see worship as a “place,” something to...

All Things in Christ

Written by
“For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to Whom be glory for ever. Amen. (Romans 11:36).”
In my written and spoken messages I make frequent reference to the preeminence of Christ. Just what do we mean by Christ having the preeminence? What do we mean by giving Christ...

Spiritual Leadership: Who Needs It?

Written by

Lonely, But Never Alone

Written by
There are many in the Body of Christ who are in transition between “going” to church and “being” the Church. The Lord is speaking to many at once and calling them aside from the traditional church building meeting to gather together in homes.

The Prisoners of the Lord

Written by
“‘Do you want to know the truth? The truth is that when you were young, you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are older, you will stretch out your arms and Someone Else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go’. By this, Jesus was...

The Abundant Life

Written by
There are two aspects, two sides to this glorious truth: first, that I AM IN CHRIST; second, that CHRIST IS IN ME. If the first is true, and I am living in Christ, then the second follows naturally – Christ is living in me.

“Yes, I am the Door. Anyone who goes in and out through Me will...

Do We Look For Another?

Written by
“Now when John heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, and said unto [Jesus], ‘Are you the One that should come, or do we look for another?’” (Matthew 11:2,3).

John: The Apostle of Testimony

Written by
If you read John’s Gospel you will find that it is harmonious with Matthew, Mark, and Luke, but it is also quite apart from them. There is a profoundness there that is not present in the others.

If we look in the New Testament we see a natural order and progression of things. Matthew, Mark,...

Bring Them to Christ

Written by
The goal of all Spirit-led ministry is to bring people to Christ. Allow me to break this statement down and explain what I mean.

If we aim for nothing we will reach nothing. Some Christian workers speak of a goal, some of a vision, some of a calling, some of a burden. Whatever phraseology you wish...

One Flock, One Shepherd

Written by
The Church is compared to many things in the Scriptures. It is described (among other things) as a Bride, a Body, a City, a Flock of sheep, and a House of Living Stones. Each represents a particular truth, but not the entire truth.

We really should be familiar with each of them that we may...

The Most Basic Lesson

“I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwells no good thing” (Romans 7:18a).
It is a great day for the Lord when a disciple of Jesus learns this most basic lesson: that in “me”, in myself, in my flesh, dwells no good thing. This is a very difficult thing for people to...
