Life and Peace

Romans 8:6—“For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.” Note 2 on death and life says: “Life and peace result from setting our mind on the spirit. When our mind is set on the spirit, our outward actions are in agreement with our inner man and there is no discrepancy between us and God. He and we are at peace, not at enmity (v. 7). The result is that...

God’s Far-reaching Mercy

As believers, we’ve heard the words mercy and grace many times. And even more, we’ve been the recipients of God’s mercy and grace. But have we stopped to really think about the difference between the two? Have we considered just how merciful our God is to us and why? Mercy is what’s extended to someone in a helpless state, without a glimmer of hope. This was surely our case as sinners. God had...

A Feast to Meet All Our Need and to Be All Our Supply

“Every Christian also needs a daily salvation from sin, self, human weakness, and other negative things. On the positive side he also needs a bountiful supply of the Lord to nourish and strengthen him in order that he may grow up into Christ in all things. The way into the realization of this is simply by calling on the Lord. He is rich to all who call upon Him.”

Christ Is Our Faith

“We believe in Christ by His faith, not by our own faith. Christ is our faith. Never say that you cannot believe, for you can believe if you want to. Do not try to believe by yourself, because the more you try, the less faith you have. Simply say, ‘O Lord Jesus, I love You. Lord Jesus, You are so good.’ If you do this, you will have faith immediately.”

The Love of the Divine Trinity

Luke 15:3-4—“And He told them this parable, saying, Which man of you, who has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?” Note 1 on parable says: “In answering the self-righteous Pharisees and scribes, who condemned Him for eating with sinners, the Savior spoke three parables, unveiling and...

Taking the Lord as Our Spiritual Nourishment

“When a baby is born, his most immediate need is to take some milk for nourishment. Without nourishment the new babe will not only fail to grow properly, but will soon become very weak and eventually even die. After we are saved and born again, our most immediate need also is that we learn how to take in the Lord as our spiritual milk and nourishment.”

Death Versus Life and Peace in Romans 8:6

In Romans 8:6 Paul draws a stark contrast between two things: “For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.” Death, or life and peace—it all depends on where the mind is set. We surely prefer life and peace, but since life and peace result from the mind set on the spirit, how do we do that? What is the spirit? What is the flesh? What is death in our...

Receiving God’s Great Power of Resurrection

“Oh, may we see that this life of God, which we receive when we are regenerated, is God’s great power of resurrection! This life which is in us today can make us as strong as God is. Just as God is able to overcome death, so we also are able to overcome death because of this life of great power within us.”

Our Heavenly Father Knows

Matthew 6:31-32—“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, With what shall we be clothed? For all these things the Gentiles are anxiously seeking. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.” Note 1 on heavenly Father says: “The kingdom people have the divine life of their heavenly Father as their strength to keep the new law of the...
