He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief.

~ Rom 4:20

Have faith in God. Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.—Without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God, must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

He that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead.—Being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

Is any thing too hard for the Lord?—With God all things are possible.—Lord, increase our faith.

I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face.

~ 3 John 1:14

Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down! As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices.

Our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope. Whom having not seen, ye love.

He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly; Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. It shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

In all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. – Heb 4:15

When the woman saw that the tree was good for food (the lust of the flesh), and that it was pleasant to the eyes (the lust of the eyes), and a tree to be desired to make one wise (the pride of life), she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

When the tempter came to [Jesus], he said, if thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread (the lust of the flesh). But he answered, … Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. The devil … sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them (the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life). Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan.

In that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation.

The God of all grace.

[1 Pet 5:10 NET]

“I will proclaim the Lord by name before you; I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious.”—“God is gracious to him and says, ’Spare him from going down to the place of corruption, I have found a ransom for him.’”—They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God publicly displayed him at his death as the mercy seat accessible through faith. This was to demonstrate his righteousness, because God in his forbearance had passed over the sins previously committed.—Grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ.

For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.—Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord!—To each one of us grace was given according to the measure of the gift of Christ.—Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God.—He gives greater grace.

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the honor both now and on that eternal day.

[Exod 33:19, Job 33:24, Rom 3:24-25, John 1:17, Eph 2:8, 1 Tim 1:2, Eph 4:7, 1 Pet 4:10, Jas 4:6, 2 Pet 3:18]

the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, because it does not see him or know him. But you know him, because he resides with you and will be in you.

[John 14:17 NET]

Do not fail to mark these two stages in Christian life. The one is the Spirit’s work in us, the other is the Spirit’s personal coming to abide within us. All true Christians know the first, but few, it is to be feared, understand and receive the second. There is a great difference between my building a house and my going to reside in that house and make it my home. And there is a great difference between the Holy Spirit’s work in regenerating a soul the building of a house, and His coming to reside, abide and control in our innermost spirit and our whole life and being.

Have we received Him Himself not as our Guest, but as the Owner, Proprietor and Keeper of the temple He has built to be an habitation of God through the Spirit?

This is my wonderful story,

Christ to my heart has come,

Jesus the King of glory,

Finds in my heart a home.

I am so glad I received Him,

Jesus, my heart’s dear King,

I, who so often have grieved Him,

All to His feet would bring.

“For the life of every living thing is in the blood. So I myself have assigned it to you on the altar to make atonement for your lives, for the blood makes atonement by means of the life.”

[Lev 17:11 NET]

“Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

The blood of the Lamb!” By precious blood like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb, namely Christ. Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. The blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

He entered once for all into the most holy place not by the blood of goats and calves but by his own blood, and so he himself secured eternal redemption. Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, by the fresh and living way that he inaugurated for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, let us draw near with a sincere heart in the assurance that faith brings.

For you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God with your body.

[John 1:29, Rev 7:14, 1 Pet 1:19, Heb 9:22, 1 John 1:7, Heb 9:12, Heb 10:19-20, Heb 10:22, 1 Cor 6:20]

And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”

[John 12:32 NET]

A true and pure Christian life attracts the world. There are hundreds of men and women who find no inducements whatever in the lives of ordinary Christians to interest them in practical religion, but who are won at once by a true and victorious example. We believe that more men of the world step at a bound right into a life of entire consecration than into the intermediate state which is usually presented to them at the first stage.

In an audience once there was a man who for half a century or more had lived without Christ, and who was a very prominent citizen, a man in public life, of irreproachable character, lofty intellect, and a most winning spirit and manners, but utterly out of sympathy with the Christian life.

At the close of a service for the promotion of deeper spiritual life he rose to ask the prayers of the congregation, and before the end of the week he was himself a true and acknowledged follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. He said, as he went home that night, If that is the religion of Jesus Christ, I want it.
