Gottes himmlische Berufung

Vergangenen November habe ich zusammen mit vielen anderen begeisterten christlichen Gläubigen und unseren Gästen an einem 5 km Lauf am Hauptsitz von The Way International teilgenommen. Während des Laufs dachte ich an diese Bibelverse, in denen Paulus beschreibt, wie er der Ziellinie nachjagt, um den Preis der himmlischen Berufung Gottes in Christus Jesus zu erlangen.… Continue Reading

Following Godly Examples

Have you ever witnessed a child imitate their parent’s behavior? Children will often model their behavior after what they have seen a parent do—in dress, in conversation, even in pretending to do grown-up activities such as driving a car or cooking and serving a family meal. This pattern for following the example set by others… Continue Reading

La vocation céleste de Dieu

En novembre dernier, au Quartier Général de The Way International, j’ai participé à une course de 5 km avec de nombreux autres croyants enthousiastes et nos invités. Pendant la course, j’ai pensé à ces versets de la Bible où Paul décrit comment il se porte vers la ligne d’arrivée ou il poursuit celle-ci pour le… Continue Reading

El supremo llamamiento de Dios

El pasado mes de noviembre, en la Central de The Way International, participé en una carrera de 5 kilómetros con muchos otros creyentes cristianos entusiastas y nuestros invitados. Durante la carrera, pensé en estos versículos en la Biblia en los que Pablo describe su esfuerzo en seguir adelante hacia la meta, la línea final por… Continue Reading

It Is Christ in You!

Daily life can present challenges that even Christian believers can tend to view as a complicated maze. Like the jigsaw puzzle that’s complete except for that one piece, we may feel as if we get close to a solution but just don’t have what it takes to figure it all out—at home, at work, or… Continue Reading

Vivir libres del temor

¿Alguna vez ha enfrentado una situación que parecía estar fuera de su control? ¿Quizá usted estaba abrumado por circunstancias financieras, o estaba enfrentado la presión de llevar a cabo algo que parecía imposible de hacer? ¿Sintió usted que la única opción que tenía era darse por vencido o ignorar el asunto?

Avez-vous jamais été confronté à une situation qui semblait hors de votre contrôle ? Peut-être avez-vous été accablé par des circonstances financières, ou avez-vous été confronté à la pression d’accomplir quelque chose qui semblait impossible à faire ?

Prayer for One Another

James 5:16:…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. As members of the Body of Christ, part of our sufficiency in Christ Jesus is that we can pray effectually for one another. The specific prayers that we request of God for one another have mighty, prevailing power. In Acts 12 when Peter was… Continue Reading

Unlocking the Power of Prayer

Two friends were admiring a new tablet computer that one of them had bought. The purchaser had just one problem: how to unlock it and use it! With a swipe of a finger, her more knowledgeable friend touched the screen and quickly unlocked it, opening up a bright menu of resources. In the material realm,… Continue Reading

Mit Gottes Liebe die ganze Strecke bewältigen

Meine Aufregung wuchs, als ich mich dem Ende des 5-Kilometer-Laufs näherte, der durch meine schöne Heimatstadt verlief. Das Rennen zu beenden bedeutete, die vollen 5 Kilometer zu laufen – nicht 4.8 oder 4.9, sondern die vollen 5! Nur dann hätte das Rennen als beendet gegolten und die ganze Strecke als bewältigt. Jesus Christus beteiligte sich… Continue Reading

Serving Together in the Body of Christ

Ephesians 1:3:Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. One of God’s most wonderful blessings that comes with being born again of His spirit is that we are not alone. We are now part of a body—the Body of… Continue Reading

Giving with a Cheerful Heart

Life takes on exciting dimensions as we give with a cheerful heart. II Corinthians 9:6:But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. When farmers plant crops for the season, they consider planting enough extra seeds to allow for those that will be… Continue Reading

Empoderados para vivir el Misterio

En el día de Pentecostés y debido a lo que Dios logró por medio de Su Hijo Jesucristo, la gente por primera vez pudo renacer del espíritu de Dios y ser empoderada para vivir las riquezas de la gloria del Misterio.

Au jour de la Pentecôte, grâce à ce que Dieu a accompli par Son Fils Jésus-Christ, les gens ont pu, pour la première fois, naître de nouveau de l’esprit de Dieu, remplis avec l’habilité à vivre les richesses de la gloire du Mystère. Ce grand mystère est que les croyants Judéens et païens sont maintenant… Continue Reading

Spiritual Sufficiency

Acts 2:38:Then [on the day of Pentecost] Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost [the gift from the Holy Spirit, God]. After the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus… Continue Reading

Our Victory through Jesus Christ

What if you went into every competition you faced assured that you would be victorious? Would that make you feel confident, competent, and qualified? Sure it would! I Corinthians 15:57:But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. II Corinthians 2:14:Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us… Continue Reading

Never Without God’s Comfort

What do we do when the pressures of life are squeezing us and we need comfort? Do we reach for our favorite “comfort food”? Do we curl up in a comfy chair and escape by bingeing our favorite show? Do we seek relief by spending time outside in nature? These may help for a while,… Continue Reading

Gottvertrauen, dass Gott Seine Verheißungen erfüllt

Vor ein paar Monaten wurde ich für einen neuen Job eingearbeitet. Ich bekam Anweisungen zu den Abläufen, die ich befolgen musste und ich bekam auch einen USB-Stick für den Computer. Ich hatte einen bestimmten Ort, an dem ich den USB-Stick am Ende eines jeden Arbeitstages aufbewahrte. Eines Tages kam ich zur Arbeit und konnte den… Continue Reading

Can and Will God Bring Healing?

The Word of God reveals the heart of God and answers every important question in the heart of man. A question we might have in our lives is, Can and will God bring healing? One title of God answers that question. It is Jehovah-ropheka, “the Lord that healeth thee.” God revealed Himself as Jehovah-ropheka, “the… Continue Reading

Ejemplos Bíblicos de mantenerse en forma

En el ministerio de El Camino he aprendido que uno de los principios activadores más importantes para la vida humana es la motivación por servir.

Exemples Bibliques d’être en forme pour servir

Dans le Ministère de La Voie, on m’a enseigné que l’un des plus grands principes qui animent la vie humaine est la motivation à servir. J’ai constaté que c’est vrai, car j’ai vu que les croyants aiment servir. Nous aimons conduire des cours du ministère, nous aimons enseigner la Bible dans nos foyers, nous aimons… Continue Reading

Overcoming Feelings of Inferiority or Superiority

When I went to my first Way Ministry fellowship, the believers took me in and accepted me for who I was. When I became born again of God’s spirit, God accepted me for who I was, and I then had fellowship with Him, freely. Yet, as I continued in life, I sometimes looked around at… Continue Reading

Mit Gottvertrauen für Gott sprechen

Als wiedergeborene Gläubige haben wir das Privileg, Gott zu kennen und all dem gerecht zu werden, wozu Er uns berufen hat. Wir können Gott vertrauen und wir können vertrauensvoll für Ihn als Botschafter an Christus statt sprechen. Laut Wörterbuch wird das deutsche Wort „Vertrauen“ als das Gefühl oder der Glaube definiert, dass man sich auf… Continue Reading

Reaching Out to Help Others

God never intended for us to be alone in the various challenges we will face in life. On the contrary, in His Word, God tells us that we are to forbear (bear up, hold up, endure, bear with, or sustain) one another. In Ephesians 5:2, He tells us that we are to “…walk in love,… Continue Reading

Helping Others Take Believing Action

God’s deliverance is presently available. Right now, anyone can be freed from the weight of any need or lack. We can help others receive God’s deliverance as we share God’s Word and encourage them to take steps of believing. Believing action is the key that opens the door to deliverance. At times, to see deliverance… Continue Reading

Helping Others by Listening

One evening I was going to the movies with a group of friends, excited to see a new movie that just came out. Everyone was buzzing with energy and conversation! Almost everyone. I noticed that one of my friends who was normally bright, energetic, and outgoing on even a normal day was being very quiet… Continue Reading

Notre procuration

Il existe à travers l’histoire et à notre époque plusieurs noms de personnes de grande renommée qui symbolisent la richesse, le prestige social, la célébrité. Cependant Dieu a décrété le nom de Son Fils, le nom de Jésus-Christ, comme étant suprême, au-dessus de tout nom. C’est en son nom que réside la vraie puissance. Dieu… Continue Reading

Nuestro poder legal de representación

En la historia encontramos abundantes nombres de personas notables. También hay nombres de personas notables hoy en día. Son nombres que representan riqueza, posición, fama. No obstante, Dios ha decretado el nombre de Su Hijo—el nombre de Jesucristo—para ser superior sobre todo nombre. Y es en su nombre donde radica el verdadero poder. Dios le… Continue Reading

Leading with Godly Temperance

While growing up, I enjoyed competing in multiple types of sports, doing whatever was needed to be my best and to win. As rewarding as these physical competitions and achievements were, no victory has been as sweet as effectively leading God’s people to the more than abundant life. No matter what task I’ve chosen to… Continue Reading

Spiritual Athletes Are Able to Win!

In the Old Testament, God’s people had to fight and defeat a physical enemy. They were soldiers of the Lord. In the Grace Administration today, our competition is not against a physical enemy. As born-again believers, we are in a spiritual competition, and we have a spiritual opponent. This knowledge does not need to discourage… Continue Reading

Superconquerors in All of Life’s Situations

Editor’s Note: As we grow in our understanding of the spiritual competition of life, which is laid out in the Word of God, we can be reminded that we are superconquerors in all of life’s situations. Enjoy this article “from the vault,” originally published in April of 2018, which details devices our adversary uses against… Continue Reading

Gottgefällige Kommunikation verhilft zu einem friedlichen Zuhause

Unsere Beziehungen in unserem Zuhause werden gedeihen, wenn wir anständig und gottgefällig miteinander kommunizieren. Ich habe das erlebt, als ich ein Haus mit einigen Gläubigen teilte, die alle in Frühschicht in einem nahen gelegenen Geschäft arbeiteten. Aufgrund ihres Zeitplans frühstückten sie vor der Arbeit und ließen dann das Geschirr in der Spüle stehen mit der… Continue Reading

Spiritual Athletes for God

Did you ever play a sport as a kid? Perhaps you just enjoy watching sports. I particularly enjoy watching the sport of figure skating. Whether skating alone or with a partner, figure skaters display incredible athleticism and precision in their movements. They discipline their minds and strengthen and train their bodies to glide smoothly across… Continue Reading

Free to Serve in Love

God has given believers in the Grace Administration a very important command. We are told to stand fast in liberty. Galatians 5:1:Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. The yoke of bondage refers to the Old Testament law. As is… Continue Reading

The Grace of God

As God’s children, we have received an abundance of blessings from Him. One of the most fundamental blessings we gain when we become children of God is salvation. Although we know this monumental blessing is ours to claim, at times it may feel too good to be true. There must be something more we should… Continue Reading

Ein Leben in Freude: Unseren Körper in Stand halten

Es ist Gottes leidenschaftlicher Wunsch und Sein gewollter Plan, dass Seine Kinder jeden Tag ein Leben in Freude führen (Psalm 118:24). Das deutsche Wort „Freude“ kann definiert werden als „ein sehr frohes Gefühl; Glück; großes Vergnügen; Entzücken.“ Hört sich das nicht nach etwas an, das Sie gerne hätten? Gott hat Seine Kinder ganz bewusst geistlich… Continue Reading

God’s Word Communicated Throughout the Ages

In most of the world today, it is very easy to find God’s Word, which is where we find His will. Bibles are plentiful and produced in many different languages and formats. But what did people do to find God’s will before the Word was written down? The answers are found in the Bible itself.… Continue Reading

What Are Biblical Administrations?

I once read a letter that was addressed to my mother. As I read the letter, I gained a lot of information but could not act on it all. Why could I not act on it? Because the letter was not addressed to me. Could I learn from it? Certainly. But since it was not… Continue Reading

Peter and Cornelius

On the day of Pentecost, God made available the gift of holy spirit for all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. This truth, however, was not fully understood in a practical sense until almost fifteen years later, when God sent Peter to the house of a devout Gentile, Cornelius. As we consider the record… Continue Reading

Paul: The Power to Change

Can a person really change for the better? This question is asked so often, it is almost cliché. What is God’s viewpoint on this question? Can a person really change? The Book of Acts gives an account of a person changing drastically for the better. At one point in his life, Saul (later referred to… Continue Reading

Preaching Christ

Because of his accomplishments, we can preach Christ today and manifest the distinctive power in his name in the Grace Administration. We preach the blessings of the glorified Christ and our completeness in him as born-again sons of God. This is our lifestyle of illustrating what God has done in Christ. There are differences between… Continue Reading

What Does Pentecost Mean to Us Today?

The first Pentecost after the resurrection of Jesus Christ was many, many years ago; but on that day something happened that still affects us today. Because of what God accomplished through Christ, a new period of time in God’s historical and spiritual timetable arrived—the Grace Administration. On that day, God poured out His gift of… Continue Reading

The Book of Acts: Our Blueprint for Today

Have you ever tried to accomplish something without any instruction? Sure, we can muddle through with trial and error and maybe make a little progress. But isn’t it always helpful to have direction and an example of how to do something, enabling us to streamline our efforts and see profitable results? Well, God gave us… Continue Reading

The Fruit of the Spirit

Imagine the most vibrantly red, juicy, incredibly flavorful tomato you have ever eaten. Maybe you ate it all by itself because it was that good. I know I’ve done this. The best tomatoes (and fruit in general) are produced when the plant has the rich soil, vital nutrients, and attentive care it needs for proper… Continue Reading

Operating the Gift of Holy Spirit

Who doesn’t want the power to make things happen? As born-again believers, we have been filled with the gift of holy spirit (Acts 2:38), power from on high (Luke 24:49). We have power for abundant living. To see this power in manifestation, we must operate the gift God has given us. But how does it… Continue Reading

The Manifestations of Holy Spirit

When the Apostle Paul traveled to Ephesus in Acts 19, he met born-again disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. And he asked them a question: “Have ye received [lambanō, received into manifestation] the Holy Ghost [gift of holy spirit] since ye believed?” But they answered, “We have not so much as heard whether there be… Continue Reading

Gott will, dass wir frei sind

Es ist Gottes absoluter Wille, dass wir von jedem Gefängnis, das uns gefangen hält oder jeder Fessel, die uns bindet, befreit werden. Gefängnisse sind nicht nur aus stählernen Gittern gemacht. Oft haben wir auch geistige Gefängnisse, aus denen wir befreit werden müssen. Wie können wir uns befreien und Gottes Willen für unser Leben erkennen? Gottes… Continue Reading

Who Is Qualified to Receive Holy Spirit?

When I was a teenager, I looked forward to the day I would receive my driver’s license so I could start driving. I longed for the freedom and power having a driver’s license would give me. But not so fast…I would have to be qualified first! I would need to take a driver’s training course,… Continue Reading
