Knowing God’s Will

When you know Christ, when you saturate yourself in His Word, knowing God’s will naturally follows. It’s not hidden and obscure, it’s clearer than it’s ever been.

Leading By Serving

Effective role-modeling presupposes close relationships and therefore serves as a protection to both leader and follower.

Learn to Want What is Best

When we see things clearly, with an eternal perspective, what we value and what we want radically changes.

If a person enters into a relationship with Jesus Christ, shouldn’t there begin a transformation in their life?

If a person enters into a relationship with Jesus Christ, shouldn’t there begin a transformation in their life? Yet I read in your book The Grace & Truth Paradox and have been told by other people that “good works don’t save us, and bad works won’t kill us.” I strongly believe in eternal security, but I fear that some are going to stand face to face with the Creator of the universe and he will say, “I never knew you.”

Note from Randy: I wrote this to the men in a study group I led, based on Dallas Willard’s book, Spirit of the Disciplines.

A History of Your Life

Fill your heart with thoughts of Him and His ways! Let your meditation be as full and exhaustive as possible. Do not let your thoughts swim like feathers upon the surface of the water, but sink like lead to the bottom. Although we cannot sound the depth of providence by our short line, it ...
