Friendship With God

Mars Hill Staff Devotional
from Oswald Chambers

Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do? — Genesis 18:17

We often think with joy that Jesus is our friend, but what are some of the challenges of His friendship? Why did Abraham stop praying when he did? He was not intimate enough yet to go boldly on until God granted his desire, there was something yet to be desired in his relationship to God.

Christ Our Model

Mars Hill Staff Devotional
from D.L. Moody

…fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith… Hebrews 12:2a

Is it really possible to be like Christ? The trouble with most people is that their lives are not formed according to any plan. They are not striving to resemble any model. They have no definite aim and purpose.

The Gift of Power

Mars Hill Staff Devotional
from D.L. Moody

…but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. Acts 1:8 (NASB)

Do you need the power of the Holy Spirit in your life?
Do you know the difference between strength and power? Between influence and power?
Between being indwelt by the Holy Spirit and being filled with His power?
