"The distinguishing mark of saving faith is not perfection. The mark of faith is not that I never sin...The mark of faith is that I fight. I fight anything that dims my sight of Jesus as my glorious Savior. I fight anything that diminishes the fullness of the lordship of Jesus in my life. I fight

He gives from a bigger heart-like God.
He speaks with a purer tongue-like Christ.

O that I might the power receive
The simple life of faith to live,
A stranger by the world unknown,
To live, shut up with Christ alone!
Jesus, my real Life Thou art,
Inspire Thyself into my heart,
And fill'd with purity divine
I live, thro' endless

My friend, you can study baking and become an excellent baker, but you can’t bake without flour. You can study the ways of fish and become an excellent fisherman, but it will do you no good without equipment. You can study flying for years and become a certified, licensed pilot, and it will do

I was once invited to lay hands on some people who had obeyed to an altar call during an open air meeting. I asked one sick old man whether he believed in Jesus Christ as Lord and saviour and he told me, no. I again asked him if he was ready to receive the Lord Jesus into his life and be saved, and
For those who choose to put Jesus on the throne, life is different....and that difference is love. Billy Graham tells of the mountain folks in our state, and how they would take a slatted cradle, place their laundry in it and tie it crossways to the rushing water of the creek. The agitation of

I remember saying this very clearly as a young man “Well God I’m pleased that I have Jesus in my life but I’d like to try it on my own before I really give my whole life over, and this was even after publicly declaring Jesus as my Lord and saviour.
How thick I was, you see even Kings who have

RUNNING FROM SIN
The story is told of a young girl who accepted Christ as her Savior and applied for membership in a local church. "Were you a sinner before you received the Lord Jesus into your life?" inquired an old deacon.

One way fans try to follow Jesus without denying themselves is by compartmentalizing the areas of their lives they don’t want him to have access to. They try to negotiate the terms of the deal. I’ll follow Jesus, but I’m not going to sell my possessions. Don’t ask me to forgive the people who

A young boy came to church one cold winter day to get out of the blowing snow. He had been trying to sell newspapers but not a single customer had passed by because of the weather. He slipped into the back of the church, just hoping to get warm and catch up on his sleep.

Jesus stated, “Unless you eat the flesh . . . and drink His blood, you have no life in you” (v. 53). Eating flesh and drinking blood sounds like the Lord’s Supper or Communion, where Jesus spoke of the bread as his body and the cup as his blood (Matthew 26:26-28). Warren Wiersbe tells us, “I do not
