    Is God’s Will My Will? " This is the will of God, your sanctification . . . —1 Thessalonians 4:3 " Sanctification is not a question of whether God is willing to sanctify me— is it my will? Am I willing to let God do in me everything that has been made possible through the atonement of the Cross of Christ? Am I willing to let Jesus become sanctification to me, and to let His life be exhibited in my human flesh? (see 1 Corinthians 1:30). Beware of saying, “Oh, I am longing to be sanctified.” No, you are...

    The Unheeded Secret " Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world —John 18:36 " The great enemy of the Lord Jesus Christ today is the idea of practical work that has no basis in the New Testament but comes from the systems of the world. This work insists upon endless energy and activities, but no private life with God. The emphasis is put on the wrong thing. Jesus said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation . . . . For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:20-21). It is a hidden,...

    Building on the Atonement " . . . present . . . your members as instruments of righteousness to God —Romans 6:13 " I cannot save and sanctify myself; I cannot make atonement for sin; I cannot redeem the world; I cannot right what is wrong, purify what is impure, or make holy what is unholy. That is all the sovereign work of God. Do I have faith in what Jesus Christ has done? He has made the perfect atonement for sin. Am I in the habit of constantly realizing it? The greatest need we have is not to...

    in the days of your youth,before the days of trouble come    and the years approach when you will say,    “I find no pleasure in them”—2 before the sun and the light    and the moon and the stars grow dark,    and the clouds return after the rain;3 when the keepers of the house tremble,    and the strong men stoop,when the grinders cease because they are few,    and those looking through the windows grow dim;4 when the doors to the street are closed    and the sound of grinding fades;when people rise up at the...

    Coming to Jesus " Come to Me . . . —Matthew 11:28 " Isn’t it humiliating to be told that we must come to Jesus! Think of the things about which we will not come to Jesus Christ. If you want to know how real you are, test yourself by these words— “Come to Me . . . .” In every dimension in which you are not real, you will argue or evade the issue altogether rather than come; you will go through sorrow rather than come; and you will do anything rather than come the last lap of...

    Finding that Nevadas constitutional ban on same-sex marriage imposes profound legal, financial, social and psychic harms on many of its citizens, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday overturned the prohibition, paving the way for gay unions in the Silver State. The court reversed a U.S. District Court ruling in favor of the states voter-approved ban and remanded it back to District Court for the prompt issuance of an injunction permanently enjoining the state, its political subdivisions, and its officers, employees, and agents from enforcing the constitutional provision. The ruling also overturned Idahos ban on same-sex marriage. Clark...
