THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STONE

Gary Wilkerson – November 11, 2019 “Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away” (Matthew 27:59-60). When Jesus was placed in the tomb following his crucifixion, he left the disciples heartbroken and baffled. When the massive … Continue reading THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STONE

PREPARED FOR BATTLE

Gary Wilkerson – August 12, 2019   “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against … the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places … Praying at all times … Continue reading PREPARED FOR BATTLE

Hours of Greatest Weakness

Gary Wilkerson – July 22, 2019   “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for … Continue reading Hours of Greatest Weakness

JESUS’ DESIGN FOR OUR LIVES

Gary Wilkerson – June 24, 2019   “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet” (Matthew 5:13). If our only mission in life is to have a deep, personal relationship with Jesus, we will miss God’s larger objective. Jesus … Continue reading JESUS’ DESIGN FOR OUR LIVES

Cry Out in Faith

Gary Wilkerson – May 6, 2019   When God’s presence is missing in one’s life, things are out of kilter because there is no law, direction or righteous teaching to serve as guidelines for living. Everyone becomes a law unto himself, doing his own thing. Sadly, this is a picture of so many Christian homes today. There is no peace or rest because everyone is doing … Continue reading Cry Out in Faith

God’s Presence is the Difference

Gary Wilkerson April 22, 2019   When we look at Abraham in the Old Testament, we witness a man whose life was so filled with the presence of God that even the heathen around him recognized the difference between their lives and his: “Abimelech … spoke to Abraham, saying, ‘God is with you in all that you do’” (Genesis 21:22). This heathen king was saying, “There … Continue reading God’s Presence is the Difference

ACTS OF FAITH by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today – MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 2014

ACTS OF FAITH by Gary Wilkerson Once the apostle Peter was miraculously freed from prison (see Acts 12:7-11), he went to the house of prayer to report the miracle to those who had been interceding for him. As Peter knocked, the group was still fervently praying inside. They had no idea how effective their prayers for their brother had been. Indeed, Scripture says their prayers … Continue reading ACTS OF FAITH by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today – MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 2014

IN THE PITS! -by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today – MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 2014

IN THE PITS! by Gary Wilkerson Starting in Genesis 37, we see Joseph’s story, which reads like an episode of the television program “Cops.” One of his brothers was a rapist and the others tried to kill Joseph and eventually sold him into slavery. Even Jacob, his own father, neglected to step in when Joseph was tormented by his brothers. Joseph paid a penalty for … Continue reading IN THE PITS! -by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today – MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 2014

“CHRISTUS VICTOR” – by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today – A Ministry of World Challenge

“CHRISTUS VICTOR” by Gary Wilkerson “Christus Victor” is the Latin phrase the early church fathers used to describe Jesus and His atonement. Roughly translated, it means, “Our victory is not in ourselves, but in Christ.” If we defeat an enemy when the odds are fifty-fifty, we are tempted to think, “I won the battle.” But when our enemy is nine feet tall; when we have … Continue reading “CHRISTUS VICTOR” – by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today – A Ministry of World Challenge

WALK IN THE SPIRIT – by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today

WALK IN THE SPIRIT by Gary Wilkerson Most of us would admit we rarely feel God’s grace at work in us. That’s why we are prone to doubt that His presence abides in us. Paul addresses this dilemma for us in Galatians when he writes, “I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16, ESV). It … Continue reading WALK IN THE SPIRIT – by Gary Wilkerson – David Wilkerson Today

BARNABAS, SON OF ENCOURAGEMENT

BARNABAS, SON OF ENCOURAGEMENT by Gary Wilkerson I have a lot of respect for Barnabas, a gentle, loving man whose name meant encouragement. Barnabas had been traveling with Paul evangelizing and planting churches, but a conflict arose. We read in Acts 15:36-41 that Paul and Barnabas stopped working together over a young man named John Mark. Paul felt that John Mark had hurt their ministry … Continue reading BARNABAS, SON OF ENCOURAGEMENT
