'Jesus is unashamed and unafraid of telling us up front the “worst” — the painful cost of being a Christian: hating family (v. 26), carrying a cross (v. 27), renouncing possessions (v. 33). There is no small print in the covenant of grace. It is all big, and bold. No cheap grace! Very costly! Come, and be my disciple.

'But Satan hides his worst and shows only his best. All that really matters in the deal with Satan is in small print on the back page.

'On the front page in big, bold letters are the words, “You will not surely die” (Genesis 3:4), and “All these things I will give to you, if you fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9). But on the back page in small print — so small you can only read it with the magnifying glass of the Bible — it says: “And after the fleeting pleasures, you will suffer with me forever in hell.”

'Why is Jesus willing to show us his “worst” as well as his best, while Satan will only show us his best? Matthew Henry answers, “Satan shows the best, but hides the worst, because his best will not [counterbalance] his worst; but Christ’s will abundantly.”' - John Piper.

"It is delightful to worship God, but it is also a humbling thing; and the man who has not been humbled in the presence of God will never be a worshiper of God at all. He may be a church member who keeps the rules and obeys the discipline, and who tithes and goes to conference, but he'll never be a worshiper unless he is deeply humbled." A.W. Tozer on humility and worship. Read the full devotional here: https://www.biblegateway.com/devotionals/tozer-on-leadership/2017/06/07?utm_source=bg&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=devotional

"You never know how well your house is built until it is tested by the elements. Torrential rains reveal the quality of your roof. Wind and cold reveal how well your home is insulated. Heat and sun reveal the quality of your paint and siding. All these elements reveal whether a solid foundation has been laid to make your home a secure and lasting place to live.

"Many of us find that we have given only lip service to God's commands. We are faced with the reality that our foundations are not strong enough to weather life's storms. How do we react when the trials come? Do we fret and worry? Do we take life into our hands? Do we respond inappropriately when we don't get what we want? The Lord uses these times to help us recognize whether our foundations are sand or rock. Ask the Lord today if you have built on His rock. If so, you can be comforted to know that you can weather any storm that may come your way." - Os Hillman.

"Maybe you have experienced the discipline of God in your own life. You have suffered painful consequences for sinful choices you have made. Perhaps you feel that God has left you there. If so, remember that although God is just, he is also full of mercy. His compassions never fail. He promises to forgive us when we come to him and confess what we have done or not done. No matter how you have offended God, you can have hope because of his great mercy. You can always have a fresh start with him because his compassions are 'new every morning.'" - from the Women's Devotional Bible.

"Sometimes God whispers in our ears and mobilizes us to take action on His behalf to carry out His will. But Sarah had no such directive from God in choosing to give Hagar to Abraham. God doesn’t need our help to move things along or to make things happen. Unless we hear from Him, we should remove our hands from manipulating the lives of others; even if we’re doing what we think is best for them. In fact, we could be interfering with God’s plans for that person’s life and our own." - Michele Clark Jenkins.

What is the secret to the revival of the church? To spiritual restoration? How can you renew your own relationship with God? How did the ancient prayer of Daniel move heaven and change a nation? We interviewed Anne Graham Lotz about her book "The Daniel Prayer" to learn why prayer is so important, why it's so often neglected, and who in the Bible models effective prayers.
