The Secret of Real Living

By   •   January 2

Some Christians have learned little of a daily devotional life. Some time ago a policeman asked me what the secret of victorious living was. I told him that there is no magic formula that can be pronounced. If any word could describe it, I would say surrender. The second word I would say would be devotion. Nothing can take the place of a daily devotional life with Christ. Your quiet time, your prayer time, the time you spend in the Word, is absolutely essential for a happy Christian life. You cannot possibly be a happy, dynamic, and powerful Christian apart from a daily walk with Christ. Christ is calling Christians today to cleansing, to dedication, to consecration, and to full surrender. It will make the difference between success and failure in your spiritual life. It will make the difference between being helped and helping others. It will make a difference in your habits, in your prayer life, in your Bible reading, in your giving, in your testimony, and in your church membership. This is the Christian hour of decision!

Prayer for the day

I long for a deeper devotional life, living Lord. May I consecrate myself completely to You.

    There is absolutely no substitute for a daily devotional time with Christ. It is far more important than anything else you could possibly do during your day. A wise believer will make the time even if it means getting up a little earlier or going to bed a little later. The reward of gaining Godly knowledge will be immense.
