“The starting point of spiritual warfare is standing upon the victory of Christ; it is seeing that Christ has already overcome. It is not dealing with Satan, but trusting in the Lord. It is not hoping that we will win the victory, because the victory has already been won.”
Romans 8:16—“The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God.” Note 2 on our spirit says: “This reveals that the Spirit of God today, the all-inclusive Spirit of the Triune God, dwells in our regenerated human spirit and works in our spirit. These two spirits are one; they live together, work together, and exist together as one mingled spirit (1 Cor. 6:17). See John 3:6;...
In our post on the benefits of singing to the Lord in our daily life, we pointed out that God’s people throughout the ages have praised, worshipped, and expressed their deepest sentiments to God in songs and hymns. As a result we believers today have a rich heritage of classic hymns to encourage and inspire us in our Christian life. In this post we’d like to share with you a hymn by A. B. Simpson...
“The more we call on the Lord, the more He becomes our enjoyment. Through calling on Him He also becomes our peace, rest, comfort, and solution to all kinds of situations. This is not a mere doctrine or superficial teaching; this is a truth for our experience.”
“When you cannot endure a difficult situation and the suppression is beyond your strength, turn to your spirit and look unto Jesus. You will rise far above it, transcendent and victorious. Everything will be under your feet.”
Have you ever wondered whether God’s salvation is only to save us from eternal perdition? Wonderful as that is, if that’s all, then what’s the meaning of the rest of our lives on earth? The Bible tells us that God’s salvation includes much more than we might have thought. It’s a complete salvation.
Ephesians 3:19—“And to know the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ, that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God.” Note 1 on knowledge-surpassing says: “The love of Christ is Christ Himself. Just as Christ is immeasurable, so also is His love; hence, it is knowledge-surpassing. Yet, we can know it by experiencing it.” Cross-reference “a” on love of Christ directs us to these verses:
“We have said again and again that God’s intention in saving us is not for us to be evil men or good men, but to be life-men or God-men. Therefore, after we are saved, we should not merely attain to the standard of morality in our behavior and live out the goodness of man, but we should reach the standard of life in our living and live out the life of God. Hence, the way we should take today is...
The Bible is much more than a book of morals and interesting stories. As God’s own speaking to mankind, it stands alone as the highest, most profound book. This Book of books brings us the divine revelation of God, His plan for man, and His eternal purpose. But the Bible isn’t always easy to understand.
“The Word is not only for us to study or learn, but even more for us to taste. The way the Lord nourishes His Body is by His Word. If we desire to enjoy the Lord and be nourished by the Lord, we must come to the Word and taste the Lord.”
