    I'm requesting prayers for my family. We are having lots of medical problems. My husband had prostate cancer surgery in December. The initial reports are good, and the path report indicates they got the cancer. However, the cancer was upgraded to a stage 3 gleason of 7. He goes in for follow up testing the middle of March. In the meantime, my 15 year old daughter is having finger spasms. I thought it was going to turn out to be nothing, but last week the neurologist says it's a degenerative disease called dystonia. She's a really good flute player (only...

    Is This True of Me? "None of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself . . ." —Acts 20:24 It is easier to serve or work for God without a vision and without a call, because then you are not bothered by what He requires. Common sense, covered with a layer of Christian emotion, becomes your guide. You may be more prosperous and successful from the world’s perspective, and will have more leisure time, if you never acknowledge the call of God. But once you receive a commission from Jesus Christ, the memory...

    His Commission to Us "Feed My sheep" —John 21:17 This is love in the making. The love of God is not created— it is His nature. When we receive the life of Christ through the Holy Spirit, He unites us with God so that His love is demonstrated in us. The goal of the indwelling Holy Spirit is not just to unite us with God, but to do it in such a way that we will be one with the Father in exactly the same way Jesus was. And what kind of oneness did Jesus Christ have with the...

    Have You Felt the Pain Inflicted by the Lord? "He said to him the third time, ’. . . do you love Me?’ " —John 21:17 Have you ever felt the pain, inflicted by the Lord, at the very center of your being, deep down in the most sensitive area of your life? The devil never inflicts pain there, and neither can sin nor human emotions. Nothing can cut through to that part of our being but the Word of God. “Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, ’Do you love Me?’ ” Yet he...

None of the crimes he committed shall be remembered against him;he shall live because of the virtue he has practiced. Do I indeed derive any pleasure from the death of the wicked?says the Lord GOD.

    The Piercing Question "Do you love Me?" —John 21:17 Peter’s response to this piercing question is considerably different from the bold defiance he exhibited only a few days before when he declared, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” (Matthew 26:35 ; also see Matthew 26:33-34). Our natural individuality, or our natural self, boldly speaks out and declares its feelings. But the true love within our inner spiritual self can be discovered only by experiencing the hurt of this question of Jesus Christ. Peter loved Jesus in the way any natural man loves...
