  • The Awareness of the Call
    on September 29, 2020 at 5:00 am

    …for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel! —1 Corinthians 9:16We are inclined to forget the deeply spiritual and supernatural touch of God. If you are able to tell exactly where you were when you received the call of God and can explain all about it, I question whether you have truly been called. The call of God does not…

  • The “Go” of Unconditional Identification
    on September 28, 2020 at 5:00 am

    Jesus…said to him, "One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor…and come, take up the cross, and follow Me." —Mark 10:21 The rich young ruler had the controlling passion to be perfect. When he saw Jesus Christ, he wanted to be like Him. Our Lord never places anyone’s personal holiness above everything else when He calls a disciple. Jesus’ primary consideration is my absolute annihilation of my right to myself and…

  • The “Go” of Renunciation
    on September 27, 2020 at 5:00 am

    …someone said to Him, "Lord, I will follow You wherever You go." —Luke 9:57 Our Lord’s attitude toward this man was one of severe discouragement, “for He knew what was in man” (John 2:25). We would have said, “I can’t imagine why He lost the opportunity of winning that man! Imagine being so cold to him and turning him away so discouraged!” Never apologize…

  • The “Go” of Reconciliation
    on September 26, 2020 at 5:00 am

    If you…remember that your brother has something against you… —Matthew 5:23This verse says, “If you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you….” It is not saying, “If you search and find something because of your unbalanced sensitivity,” but, “If you…remember….” In other words, if something is brought to your conscious mind…

  • The “Go” of Relationship
    on September 25, 2020 at 5:00 am

    Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. —Matthew 5:41 Our Lord’s teaching can be summed up in this: the relationship that He demands for us is an impossible one unless He has done a supernatural work in us. Jesus Christ demands that His disciple does not allow even the slightest trace of resentment in his heart when faced with…

  • The “Go” of Preparation
    on September 24, 2020 at 5:00 am

    If you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. —Matthew 5:23-24 It is easy for us to imagine that we will suddenly come to a point in our lives where we are fully prepared, but preparation is not suddenly accomplished. In fact, it is a process that must be steadily maintained. It is dangerous to become settled and complacent in our…

  • The Missionary’s Goal
    on September 23, 2020 at 5:00 am

    He…said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem…" —Luke 18:31In our natural life our ambitions change as we grow, but in the Christian life the goal is given at the very beginning, and the beginning and the end are exactly the same, namely, our Lord Himself. We start with Christ and we end with Him— “…till we all come…to…
