Over the next seven days, I will be posting each chapter of The LILOE Devotional. On May 20th, The LILOE Devotional will be available on Amazon in both print and digital editions.
A man was aimlessly driving down a road near his house. He had no particular destination in mind. He was simply driving and meditating on the negative turn his life had taken. He was driving past a church building and saw a sign noting the Sunday evening service started at 6 P.M. It was 5:59.
If you pressed me, I could recount miraculous answers God to my own prayers over the years. If you were to read George Müller’s autobiography, you would experience both conviction and encouragement concerning the place and power of prayer in the Christian life.
To love is to discipline, and to delight is to reproof. Do not miss this most wonderful spiritual truth. Disciplining your children is loving them. Delighting in your children will demand discipline.
Where the Word of God reigns supreme, and when you have a good theology of work, a Christian is called to be nothing less than honest, industrious, pure and prosperous.
Shaken is a much-needed biopic of a Christian man seeking to love God and love others. One of the most encouraging aspects of this book is Tebow’s steadfast faith through both trials and victories.
Dr. R.C. Sproul’s classic treatment concerning God’s Holiness is a valuable, if not required, addition to any Christian library. The Holiness of God bridges the gap between seminary training and Sunday school, just as Sproul’s Ligonier Ministries aims to do. With advanced study, but comprehensive language, this book enables the believer to better grasp the distinct “otherness” of God.
The Holy Spirit is the third member of our triune God. His membership dwells on an equal plane in terms of deity and personhood. This identity equality is noted in Jesus’ baptismal formula, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”(Matthew 28:19-20).
Continuing our Teach Them, blog series, we now turn our attention to the person of Jesus Christ. Every believer is called to teach the words of God, and this includes the second person of the Godhead, Jesus Christ.
God calls us to honor our parents (Leviticus 19:3). I have honored my father through this blog, and now I honor my mother. She is truly a “woman who fears the Lord” and today she is to be praised (Proverbs 31:30). Her humility is noticed. Her nurturing is appreciated. Her discipline was for my good. Her teaching is remembered. Today is a day to honor her.
Every believer is called to teach the words of God at all times. Foundational to this calling is understanding the simple truth of who God is. There is a divine tension between the reality that God is both knowable and yet incomprehensible.
This book is short in length but not lacking in wisdom regarding biblical purity for men. With much clarity and conviction, the author challenges true Christian men to pursue sexual purity through God’s eyes.
