  1. "A young man enlisted, and was sent to his regiment. The first night he was in the barracks with about fifteen other young men, who passed the time playing cards and gambling. Before retiring, he fell on his knees and prayed, and they began to curse him and jeer at him and throw boots at him. So it went on the next night and the next, and finally the young man went and told the chaplain what had taken place, and asked what he should do. 'Well,' said the chaplain, 'you are not at home now, and the other men have just as much right to the barracks as you have. It makes them mad to hear you pray, and the Lord will hear you just as well if you say your prayers in bed and don't provoke them.'

  2. Early African believers were earnest and regular in private devotions. Each one reportedly had a separate spot in the thicket where he would pour out his heart to God. Over time, the paths to these places became well worn. As a result, if one of these believers began to neglect prayer, it was soon apparent to the others. They would kindly remind the negligent one, "Brother, the grass grows on your path." The post Is there grass on your path? appeared first on Worthy Christian Devotional - Daily Devotions.

  3. In my first years serving the Lord, I was dedicated to serving with an inner city bus ministry in the heart of Baltimore. We would go door to door and offer "free Sunday morning babysitting" for their kids. If they agreed to let us take their kids to church, we would come and pick them up early every Sunday morning. Many times, the obvious change in their kids' lives would make a great impression and their parents would be moved to come out to the church as well --- then they too would give their lives to the Lord! It was exciting to see whole families come to faith! The following story touched my heart, from Max Lucado's book, God Came Near.

    Messianic teachers

    I know Greg Hershberg in the Atlanta area -- I've never heard him speak but several of his congregants are Worthy Brief readers and their worship leader is coming on tour with us in Israel this August. Honestly, I'm not sure who has their messages online. You can probably grab Beth Israel in Jersey -- Jonathan Cahn and he's solid. God bless, George Go

    Cheer up!

    In her book, Let Me Be a Woman, Elizabeth Elliot records the story of a friend who had great difficulty accepting the looks God had given her. While everyone this girl knew had grown beautiful golden hair, hers was black. And while they were all still growing, she had stopped. She grew to be only about four feet ten inches tall.

  6. As members of the body of Messiah, we can be compared to pieces in a jigsaw puzzle. Each piece has protrusions and indentations. The protrusions represent our strengths (gifts, talents, abilities), and the indentations represent our weaknesses (faults, limitations, shortcomings, undeveloped areas). The beautiful thing is that the pieces complement one another and produce a beautiful whole. The post Do you like puzzles? Here's one for you. appeared first on Worthy Christian Devotional - Daily Devotions. Read the entire devotional.

    Roll Up Your Sleeves!

    The LORD bared His holy arm, in a manner of speaking, God rolled up his sleeve(s) and revealed Yeshua, (Jesus) in the eyes of all the nations. A major sign of the end of this age will be the preaching of this gospel of salvation ("yeshua", in Hebrew) to the entire world for a witness to all nations. We are called to participate in this mandate. The post Roll Up Your Sleeves! appeared first on Worthy Christian Devotional - Daily Devotions. Read the entire devotional.

    Dive Deeper!

    As the war continues in Israel, I'm finding believers throughout the land filled with peace in spite of the conflict. How is that possible, one may wonder? Could it be these believers are going deep? The post Dive Deeper! appeared first on Worthy Christian Devotional - Daily Devotions. Read the entire devotional.

    Avoid the mines!

    In a documentary mini series called "Against All Odds" a remarkable story is told about an Israeli platoon who found themselves in the midst of a minefield along the Syrian border during the Yom Kippur War. When the platoon realized they were in a minefield they pulled out their bayonets and started to dig out mines and to disarm them...

    Claim your gifts!

    Another great preacher whose writings I love to read is John R. Rice. He wrote, "I once imagined I was in Heaven, walking along with the Angel Gabriel. I said, "Gabe, what is that big building over there?" The post Claim your gifts! appeared first on Worthy Christian Devotional - Daily Devotions. Read the entire devotional.

    Hello? Anyone Home?

    New earth and the city.

    At least it made it clear to everyone why you're on Mod Review. Amazingly ... this may be the first time I've been called someone who worships a "pagan" religion. Always a first for everything!

    New earth and the city.

    I cleaned this thread of all the attacks from Emil Racovita accusing the brethren and removed the comments directed toward him as well. I also place Emil Racovita on Mod Review. Don't EVER accuse the brethren -- those who profess the name of Jesus and become the accuser of the brethren. You'll be Mod Reviewed -- or banned ASAP. When people sign up to fellowship on Worthy -- we follow a simple code of conduct -- if you can't follow the simple Terms of Service -- just move along! I'm surprised that the thread lasted as long as it did before it was reported! You all need to do a better job of reporting abusive posters! God bless, George
