The Place and Person of Victory


Jesus is Victor. Calvary is the place of victory. Obedience is the pathway of victory, Bible study and prayer the preparation. Courage, faith, the spirit of victory--every temptation is a chance for victory, a signal to fly the flag of our Victor, a chance to make the tempter know anew that he is defeated. Roy Hession writes in Calvary Road: "Jesus is always victorious. We have only to kep the right relationship with Him and His victorious life will flow through us and touch other people."

A Prayer for Joy


“A Prayer for Joy”

Help me, O God,

To listen to what it is that makes my heart glad

And to follow where it leads.

May joy, not guilt,

Your voice, not the voices of others,

Your will, not my willfulness,

Be the guides that led me to my vocation.

Help me to unearth the passions of my heart

That lay burred in my youth.

And help me to go over that ground again and again

Until I can hold in my hands,

Hold and treasure,

Your calling on my life.

The Righteous Choose thier Friends Carefully


 
The righteous shall choose his friends carefully,
for the way of the wicked leads them astray.
In the way of righteousness is life.
