Clouds and Darkness

Oswald Chambers 90x115by Oswald Chambers

Clouds and darkness surround Him . . . —Psalm 97:2

A person who has not been born again by the Spirit of God will tell you that the teachings of Jesus are simple. But when he is baptized by the Holy Spirit, he finds that “clouds and darkness surround Him . . . .” When we come into close contact with the teachings of Jesus Christ we have our first realization of this.


At Home in Your Heart?

Greg Laurie 90x115by Greg Laurie

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. —Ephesians 3:16-17

Is Christ at home in your life? If He were to walk around from room to room, would He see things that would make Him ill at ease? Would He see things that might cause Him to ask, “Why do you have that? What is that on the wall? What are these magazines? What is on your computer screen? What are you reading? What are you doing?”
