    The Place of Exaltation " . . . Jesus took . . . them up on a high mountain apart by themselves . . . —Mark 9:2 " We have all experienced times of exaltation on the mountain, when we have seen things from God’s perspective and have wanted to stay there. But God will never allow us to stay there. The true test of our spiritual life is in exhibiting the power to descend from the mountain. If we only have the power to go up, something is wrong. It is a wonderful thing to be on the...

    John Carroll: America’s Bishop George J. GallowayWhen President James Madison asked for and received, by a narrow margin, a declaration of war against Great Britain in 1812, there was one man in the new republic who knew exactly what to do: John “Jackie” Carroll, Archbishop of Baltimore, an aging shepherd of a small and widely diverse flock, in a fledgling democracy about to enter into war against the greatest sea power on earth, got on his knees and dedicated America to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.This year, we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore.

The call of God does not come like that; it is much more supernatural. The realization of the call in a person’s life may come...

Jesus Christ demands that His disciple does not allow even the slightest trace of resentment in his heart when faced with tyranny and injustice. No amount of enthusiasm will ever stand up to the strain that Jesus Christ will put upon His servant. Only one thing will bear the strain, and that...

Yet we must never let those likes and dislikes rule our Christian life. “If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another” (1 John 1:7), even...

    You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy, said Jesus in his famous Sermon on the Mount. But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven (Matthew 5:43). If youve ever wondered why many people refused to follow Jesus during his earthly ministry, you have to look no further than that verse. In our day, we have watered down the term enemy so much that this command has lost much of its shock...

    Are You Going on With Jesus? " You are those who have continued with Me in My trials Luke 22:28 " It is true that Jesus Christ is with us through our temptations, but are we going on with Him through His temptations? Many of us turn back from going on with Jesus from the very moment we have an experience of what He can do. Watch when God changes your circumstances to see whether you are going on with Jesus, or siding with the world, the flesh, and the devil. We wear His name, but are we going...
