Give Me Jesus By Alf Collins

Give Me Jesus By Alf Collins What would a man be if he gained the whole world but forfeited his soul? Who would a man be if he had all the wealth his heart desired but forfeited his integrity? Such a man would be a lifeless shell, without compassion or remorse. This is not the life Jesus forfeited His own for. This is not the freedom He endured the cross for. Would a man trade all the world and all its riches in exchange for Jesus? He did it for us. He set aside His place at the Father’s...

Lawless Love By Alf Collins

Lawless Love By Alf Collins It is human nature to conclude that someone should be rewarded with something┬ábased on their performance. If they do well, they are rewarded well.

This system is an exclusive one that grants entrance only to those whose works have earned them favor with men. From the day we’re born we’re conditioned into this system.

MOUNTAIN MOVERS By Alf Collins Hebrews 11:1-2 (NKJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. In Matthew 17:20 Jesus refers to faith the size of a mustard seed. The reference to the mustard seed is in itself irrelevant, and so is the size. The point Jesus was making to His disciples is that faith can be activated even in the most extreme of situations. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Having faith in the...

UNDIGNIFIED By Alf Collins

UNDIGNIFIED By Alf Collins 2 Samuel 6:22a (NKJV) And I will be even more undignified than this, and will be humble in my own sight… Worship is the most profound medium of fellowship with the Father. It’s the one time we present our own hearts vulnerable before Him, laying everything before Him at the throne of mercy. It’s the one place we have unfettered freedom to lay out our hopes and our fears, our dreams and our failures. That is what we were designed for –intimacy. Relationship of the highest level calling us into the deepest of depths as...
