The Bountiful and All-Sufficient Supply of the Spirit

“When we are weak, let us go to the Lord, saying, ‘I praise You, Lord, that in this situation I am weak.’ By contacting Him, we will see what a wonderful Spirit He is, dwelling within us to be the bountiful and all-sufficient supply.”

The Indispensable Requirement

1 Corinthians 2:9—“But as it is written, ‘Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard and which have not come up in man’s heart; things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’” Note 3 on love Him says: “To realize and participate in the deep and hidden things God has ordained and prepared for us requires us not only to believe in Him but also to love Him. To fear God, to worship...

The Human Spirit: The Residence of the Holy Spirit

When we believed in Jesus Christ, a number of marvelous things happened to us. Among them, we were born again, and Christ came to live in us. We may be familiar with verses in the Bible telling us Christ lives in us. But where exactly does He live within us, and why is it important for us to know? Say you have a friend you correspond with by email, but you’ve never met each other in person. All...

The Inflow and Outflow of Life

“The Gospel of John speaks especially of life; it also speaks emphatically of belief and love. To believe is to take in life, while to love is to flow out life. If we want to receive life, we must believe. If we want to live out life, we must love. Only belief can allow life to enter in, and only love can allow life to flow out.”

Only Faith Counts

“To believe is the only way to receive salvation and regeneration. It is absolutely a matter of faith. Regardless of how much we can work or how good our work may be, we cannot be saved and regenerated by our work. Our work does not count in this matter. Only faith counts.”

Catching the Divine Fire in the Word of God

2 Timothy 3:16—“All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” Note 2 on God-breathed says: “This indicates that the Scripture, the word of God, is the breathing out of God. God’s speaking is God’s breathing out. Hence, His word is spirit (John 6:63), or breath. Thus, the Scripture is the embodiment of God as the...

The Difference Between Goodness and Spirituality

“Spiritual Christians are not merely good in their behavior; they live in the spirit, having the sense of the spirit, understanding spiritual things, knowing the way of God from within, and having proficiency in spiritual things. Goodness and spirituality are very different.”

The Key to Maintaining a Proper Relationship with the Lord

Most of us Christians would say we love the Lord Jesus, the One who gave His life on the cross for us. But what kind of love do we love Him with? More importantly, what kind of love does He want us to love Him with? In Revelation 2, the Lord reveals the love He wants from us. This chapter begins with the Lord’s words of praise to the church in Ephesus for being faithful in many things. Then, in...

God’s Answer: Christ

“God makes it quite clear in his Word that he has only one answer to every human need—his Son, Jesus Christ. In all his dealings with us he works by taking us out of the way and substituting Christ in our place. The Son of God died instead of us for our forgiveness: he lives instead of us for our deliverance.”
