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...

How Do We Live Our Christian Life?

It’s common for us believers to think we should be right in our conduct, be kind, do good works, and live up to the words in the Bible. We might feel pretty satisfied at the end of the day if we’ve conducted ourselves fairly well and avoided any major failures in our Christian life. But does that satisfy God? Does God desire Christians simply to be people with biblical values living an upstanding...

The Best Way to Experience the Lord Jesus

“Do you want to enjoy the Lord’s presence with all His riches? The best way to experience His presence with all His riches is to call on His name. Call on Him while you are driving on the freeway or while you are at work. Anywhere and anytime you may call. The Lord is near and rich to you.”

Regeneration Being Absolutely a Matter of Life

“Regeneration is not any kind of outward improvement or cultivation; neither is it only a mere change or conversion without life. Regeneration is a rebirth which brings in a new life. It is absolutely a matter of life, not a matter of doing. Regeneration is simply to have a life other than the life we already have. We have already received the human life from our parents; now we need to receive...

Lessons on How to Pray to God from Matthew 20

Prayer is a great matter in the Bible, and praying to God is one of the most precious privileges we have as believers. Many, unsure of how to pray to God, have questions like: How do I pray to God correctly? What should I say when I pray? Or, How can I pray to God effectively? It’s very understandable to have these kinds of questions, especially when we’re first saved and are just beginning to...

The Helmet of Salvation

Ephesians 6:17—“And receive the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which Spirit is the word of God.” Note 1 on helmet says: “Receiving the helmet of salvation is for covering our mind, our mentality, against the negative thoughts shot in by the evil one. Such a helmet, such a covering, is God’s salvation. Satan injects threats, worries, anxieties, and other weakening thoughts into...

The Unlimitedness of Christ

“There is a limit to human goodness, but the goodness of Christ is without limit. If your patience has a limit, that patience is not Christ. If you are patient with Christ’s patience, the more wrongly you are treated, the more patient you will be. This patience can never be exhausted. Christ is good in His unlimitedness; Christ is good in His spaciousness. With everything of Him, there is no...

How I Learned to Touch the Lord in a Simple Way

We hope you enjoy this BfA staff member’s testimony of learning how to touch the Lord. As a child, the Bible was a mysterious book to me because I didn’t have much exposure to it. I think we had a family Bible somewhere in the house, but I can’t remember ever picking it up and reading it. All I knew about the Bible was that it was a book religious people referred to, and like most Americans, I...

The Love and Righteousness of God

“What God is, is love, and what God does is righteousness. Since we have the life of God in us, we can be what God is and do what God does. Even as God can be love and do righteousness, so also we, because of the life of God in us, can be the love that God is and do the righteousness that God does. This means that we can love as God loves and be righteous as God is righteous.”
