John 6:68-69:—Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”
JOHN 5:44: Looking to Men
John 5:44:—“How can you believe, when you are accepting glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?”
CHRIST’S DESIRE FOR HIS PEOPLE
IF our minds were in perfect harmony with the mind of Christ our views would in many respects be greatly altered. Many things that we now desire and long for would lose much of their attractiveness; and other things that we dread and shrink from would cease to be unwelcome. The great Redeemer is in this article giving utterance to the desires of his heart on behalf of his people.
I Accepted Jesus, So Do I Have to Try Anymore?
Some who have become followers of Jesus have begun to mistakenly believe that once they have given their lives to the LORD, they can now live however they may please.
CHRISTIANS Receive the Kingdom of God Like a Little Child
This is a picture of how we come to the Father. We know we do not deserve the great gifts he has in store for us, but he loves us and desires to give us good things. Not only are disciples to receive little children (9:36–37); they are to possess childlike qualities themselves. - Rodney L. Cooper
CHRISTIANS: This-And Other-Worldliness
OVER 1,900 years ago in a discourse in Galilee, Jesus urged his hearers: “But be you seeking first the Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” This verse is, in a sense, the summing up of the whole lesson of the Sermon on the Mount up to this point.

MATTHEW 5:11 For Christ’s Sake
As Christians, let us be Christians, recognizably followers of Christ, doing His will in all we do and trying our duty at every stage simply by these questions: Is it according to His will? Does it serve His glory? Is it for His sake? So doing, we cannot but approve ourselves before man and God as followers of Him.
CHRISTIAN Faith and Life
The history of Elijah supplies us with one of the most striking, and, we may add, one of the most instructive, sections of the Old Testament.
CHRISTIANS A Needless Question Answered
“If I may be permitted to touch the hem of his garment, I shall be made whole.” But there arises this bitter question, “BUT CAN I? I know that I may if I can, but I cannot.” Now that is the question I am going to answer.
CHRISTIANS Reflect Inwardly: “May I Believe”
You know who Jesus is, and you believe him to be the Son of God, the Saviour of men. You are sure that “he is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him.” You have no doubt about those eternal truths which surround his Godhead, his birth, his life, his death, his resurrection, and his Second Advent. The doubt is concerning yourself personally—“If I may be a partaker of this salvation.”
