An Amazing Fact: In the late 1800s, engineer Washington Roebling and his father set out to build a bridge from New York to Long Island. This was highly criticized as “impossible.” After a construction accident paralyzed Washington and killed his father, the project was stopped, but Washington never gave up. Although he could only move one finger, he worked out a way to communicate instructions to his wife; she translated these for engineers who again started working on the bridge. After 13 years, the Brooklyn Bridge was completed.

Human persistence is a noble quality.

Consider Henry Ford, who went broke five times before he founded the Ford Motor Company. Thomas Edison’s teachers called him “too stupid to learn anything,” and he was fired from his first two jobs. Dr. Seuss’s first book was rejected by 27 different publishers. Beethoven’s music teachers thought he was hopeless as a musician and composer. Before becoming prime minister at age 62, Winston Churchill was defeated in every election. Abraham Lincoln was demoted during his military service, was not very successful at business, and lost many runs for public office. But these people all persisted and eventually achieved success.

As motivating as human persistence can be, however, God’s persistence is greater and more inspiring. Because of the persistence of His love for us, He will complete the good work that He has begun in us. He will not give up on us. As long as we seek His help with an honest heart, He will never turn us away.

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace. Philippians 1:3-7

An Amazing Fact: Kevlar is a synthetic fiber developed in 1965 and was first used commercially in the early 1970s as a substitute for steel racing tires. It has a high tensile strength-to-weight ratio, making it five times stronger than steel. It is used for making a variety of items such as canoes, racing sails, and bicycle tires. It’s most well-known application is in body armor.

When Stephanie Kwolek first invented poly-paraphenylene terephthalamide, the solution was a cloudy substance that was usually thrown away. But she decided to persuade the technician she was working with, Charles Smullen, to test the solution. They were amazed to find the solution did not break like nylon. Her supervisor and lab director realized her discovery was significant because it opened the door to a new field called polymer chemistry.

In body armor, Kevlar fibers actually “catch” a bullet in a multilayer web of woven fabrics. Different layers in the weave perform different tasks. The “engaged fibers” absorb and disperse the energy of the impact, transferring it to other fibers at “crossover points” in the weave of the body armor. Of course, if you don’t wear the vest, it won’t protect you. The Department of Justice estimates that 25 percent of state and local police are not issued body armor. Of the 1,200 officers killed in the line of duty since 1980, more than 30 percent could have been saved by body armor. The risk of dying from gunfire is 14 times greater for an officer not wearing body armor.

Paul writes, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11). The bullets we face are not ballistic missiles from guns. We need body armor that cannot be pierced by Satan because “we wrestle not against flesh and blood” (v. 12). God offers you something stronger than poly-paraphenylene terephthalamide. Take time today to put on the protective gear that will withstand the most powerful fire of the enemy.

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13

An Amazing Fact: The highest wind speed ever recorded on earth occurred at Barrow Island, Australia. During typhoon Olivia, the wind reached 253 miles per hour.

For more than 60 years, the Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire boasted that it had recorded the fastest wind speed on Earth. In 1934, the observatory recorded a wind speed of 231 miles per hour. But in 1996, during typhoon Olivia, Barrow Island in Australia recorded a wind speed of 253 miles per hour. The amazing—and somewhat puzzling thing—is that it took the World Meteorological Organization 14 years to recognize a new record had been set. As they were scouring through some old data, they came across the record-setting wind speed.

It didn’t take long for news to spread about the new record. And the Mount Washington Observatory reluctantly conceded that the data had to be recognized, though they were still suspicious of why it took 14 years for the new record to be declared. Of course, whether it is 253 or 231 miles per hour, we wouldn’t want to be facing such powerful winds!

Interestingly, the prophet Elijah faced some very strong winds after escaping from evil Jezebel and waiting to hear from God. He also faced an earthquake and fire. But 1 Kings gives us some interesting insight into God’s glory and power. There we read that God was not in the wind, not in the earthquake, not in the fire. Instead, He spoke to Elijah in a “still small voice” (1 Kings 19:12).

This is how God prefers to speak and interact with us. He doesn’t want to overwhelm us with grandeur. He doesn’t desire to impress us with splendor. He wants to come close and converse with us as with a friend.

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10

An Amazing Fact: The honeymoon was an accepted practice of Babylon weddings as early as 4,000 years ago. For a month after the nuptials, the bride’s father supplied his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer, and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the “honey month”—or what we know today as the “honeymoon.”

Not all marriages find the first month after the wedding to be the sweetest. At odds with Pope Clement VII’s refusal to annul his marriage to Catherine of Aragón, King Henry VIII sent a delegation to the Vatican in an effort to patch up the political differences between himself and the pope. The Earl of Wiltshire led the delegation—he also took his dog.

As was customary, the earl prostrated himself before the pope and was about to kiss the pontiff’s toe. The pope, always willing to receive the homage, thrust his foot toward the earl, but the earl’s watching dog mistook the action and went to defend his master. Instead of a kiss, the pope received a bite on the toe!

This so enraged the Swiss Guard that they instantly killed the poor dog. Terribly angered, the earl stormed away and refused to proceed with the mission to reconcile England with Rome. After the earl’s return, King Henry took permanent steps to separate the Church of England from the jurisdiction of Rome. The Anglican Church was born.

Paul speaks of a union between a bride and groom as a depiction of Christ and the church. The mutual submission and sweet love between a husband and his bride will live beyond the honeymoon when there is a sacrificial love that goes beyond self. “Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband” (Ephesians 5:33). Let the special attentions of the honeymoon continue beyond the first month and into the rest of your married lives.

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken. Deuteronomy 24:5

An Amazing Fact: When “solar winds”—electrically charged particles flowing out from the sun—hit our atmosphere, the Earth’s magnetic field traps and pushes most of them to the polar regions. The strange and beautiful light shows of the aurora borealis and aurora australis (northern and southern lights) are the result. These can be seen as a glow or as curtains or arcs. Green is the most common color, but they can also be pink, red, yellow, blue, or a combination.

Light is an essential gift from God. “Let there be light” was His first command of creation. He knew how important it would be for us. A lack of light or low levels of light can cause depression in humans and animals. We need regular exposure to strong light for our physical and emotional well-being.

The same is true in our spiritual lives. Without a regular supply of strong spiritual light, we can easily become discouraged and lose our way.

The Word of God provides this light. “Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105).

In John 8:12, Jesus says, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Because of Him we can “walk as children of light … finding out what is acceptable to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:8, 10). We don’t need to stumble around in the dark. Jesus promises to light our way.

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. Ephesians 5:8-10

An Amazing Fact: Gold is the most malleable and ductile of all the metals. It can easily be beaten or hammered so thin that it is translucent. Just one ounce of gold can be drawn into a wire more than 50 miles long. This precious metal occurs in seawater to the extent of up to 250 parts by weight to 100 million parts of water. Although the quantity of gold present in seawater is more than nine billion metric tons, the cost of recovering the gold would be far greater than the value of the gold recovered.

Pure gold has a bright yellow color and luster that it maintains without oxidizing in air or water. It is the least reactive chemical element known. It has been a valuable and highly sought-after precious metal for coins, jewelry, and other arts since long before the beginning of recorded history.

The density of gold is higher than most other metals, making it difficult to pass counterfeits.

Many factors determine the value of a gold coin, such as its rarity, age, condition, and the number originally minted. Gold coins coveted by collectors include the Aureus, Solidus, and Spur Ryal.

In July 2002, a very rare $20 1933 Double Eagle gold coin sold for a record $7,590,020 at Sotheby’s, making it the most valuable coin ever sold. In early 1933, more than 445,000 Double Eagle coins had been struck by the U.S. Mint, but most of these were surrendered and melted down following Executive Order 6102. Only a few coins managed to survive.

David speaks of God’s law with reference to gold and silver. “The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold and silver” (Psalm 119:72). And in speaking of God’s commandments, he writes, “More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold” (Psalm 19:10). Perhaps the density of gold explains why God’s law is not corruptible or reactive to elements around it. Do we value God’s Word even more than the finest gold coins in the world?

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. Revelation 21:21

An Amazing Fact: French statesman Ferdinand Flocon turned the French Civil Code into a poem to make the code more accessible to the people.

The French Revolution resulted in 14,000 pieces of new legislation. In 1804, Napoleon created the Napoleonic Code out of these and France’s older laws. He added the Code of Civil Procedure in 1806, a Commercial Code in 1807, a Criminal Code and Code of Criminal Procedure in 1808, and a Penal Code in 1810. Together these became known as the French Civil Code.

Writer and editor Ferdinand Flocon entered politics in 1848. When he was not reelected the following year, he returned to editing and selling books but continued his political activism, so the French government placed him under house arrest. The democratic wordsmith died poor, nearly blind, and bitter.

Despite his short political career, Flocon knew the law, and he clearly knew words. It is said that he turned the French Civil Code—its 22,892 articles, statutes, amendments, and annotations—into a 170,000-word poem, perfect in rhyme and meter.

Long before Flocon, another law-poem was written. After exile, the Jews returned home and rebuilt the temple. They compiled the Psalms—some old, some new—to sing in the temple. One new one, Psalm 119, dedicates eight verses each to the 22 Hebrews letters. For example, verses 1 thru 8 each start with aleph, the first letter of the alphabet. Verses 9 thru 16 all start with the second letter beth. Verses 17 thru 24 all start with the third letter, and so on.

Besides alliteration, Psalm 119 repeatedly uses eight words for the law of God: word, saying, statutes, judgments, law, commands, precepts, and testimonies. Psalm 119 uplifts God’s wonderful law, and thus God’s character. Study for yourself and see how perfect, just, and loving God’s law is.

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalms 34:8At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments. Psalms 119:62

An Amazing Fact: Walking for 30 to 60 minutes a day, five days a week, has many health benefits, such as reducing the chances of cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, anxiety, and even depression. It increases bone health, lowers the more harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and raises the more useful good high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Studies have also shown that walking can help prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia.

There is nothing simpler than walking, yet the benefits to the body’s health are amazing. Brisk walking can improve your stamina, energy, weight control, life expectancy, and reduce stress. It can also reduce your risk of getting osteoporosis, bowel cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, strokes, and coronary heart disease. It improves your memory skills, concentration, abstract reasoning—and not to mention that it can uplift your spirit!

There are many different forms of walking. Some people are fitness walkers and use pedometers to track their steps. Others enjoy leisurely strolls, bushwalking, race walking, hiking, hill walking, and Nordic walking. There are many ways to walk! Race walking is a long-distance athletic event that is similar to a running race, except one foot must always be (or appear to be) in contact with the ground. John Butcher once said, “Walking is convenient, it needs no special equipment, is self-regulating and inherently safe. Walking is as natural as breathing.”

Walking with Jesus every morning for 30 to 60 minutes of quiet time in your Bible and in prayer is good for your spiritual health and will improve the rest of your day. Perhaps that is what Paul meant when he wrote, “I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called” (Ephesians 4:1).

How is your walk with Christ?

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:8

An Amazing Fact: Sheep-herding dogs, such as border collies, are highly intelligent and can easily learn 20 to 30 different commands. These are communicated to the dog by voice, whistling, and/or hand signals. A well-trained working sheep dog is very valuable, with some selling for as much as $10,000 or more.

Isn’t it interesting that a group of shepherds were the first humans selected to visit Jesus after His birth? But why shepherds? Why not someone more prominent like a priest (there must have been a few good ones), or a governor, or some other ruler?

Many heroes in the Bible were shepherds. Abraham, Jacob, Moses, and David all had their flocks. What characteristic did these people all have in common? For one thing, they were all humble.

The shepherds that the angels visited were very humble people. They must have been looking for Him all along, studying the prophecies, praying, and waiting eagerly for their Messiah to arrive.

Jesus says, “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). Half-hearted looking won’t do. We must search for Him without reserve, and with an open, humble heart.

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. Luke 2:15-20

An Amazing Fact: During the first Gulf War, a small team of U.S. Navy SEALS created a diversion so convincing that it completely fooled the Iraqi army. About a dozen SEALS stormed the beaches of Kuwait and created such havoc that Iraqi generals believed the U.S.-led attack was coming from the sea. Iraq sent the majority of their army to repel this fake attack—only to find they had been duped as the main U.S. force came through the Saudi Arabian desert! Within hours the war was over, and it all started with less than 20 soldiers!

We don’t think of the desert as a place where exciting things happen, but don’t be fooled like the Iraqi army. Deserts are places on our planet characterized by little rain or plant growth. Specifically, they receive less than 10 inches of water per year. They are mostly made up of sand, rocks, and gravel. Deserts cover about one-fifth of all the land in the world. The largest hot desert in the world is the Sahara in North Africa. It covers 3.3 million square miles. Others have names and nicknames like “Death Valley,” “The Empty Quarter,” and “The Place of No Return.”

But did you know that deserts are only second to tropical rain forests in the variety of plants and animals that live there? Even though they have a reputation for supporting little life, they have high biodiversity, including animals that remain hidden during daylight hours to control body temperature.

One of God’s greatest soldiers in the Bible was John the Baptist. This prophetic “voice in the wilderness” grew up in the desert. The Bible says, “So the child grew and became strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his manifestation to Israel” (Luke 1:80). Many scoffed at this “wild man” from the desert, but John caught the attention of a growing number of leaders. His message cut deep. His voice rang true. And he eventually introduced the greatest figure in history, Jesus the Lamb of God.

Don’t be surprised at what God can bring out of the desert!

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Isaiah 40:3

An Amazing Fact: Honey is the only food that doesn’t spoil.

Honeybees collect a thin, sweet liquid called nectar. Nectar spoils easily, but once ripened into honey, it becomes a stable, high-density, high-energy food. Honey contains more than 20 complex sugars. Small amounts of other substances are also present in honey—flavoring materials, pigments, acids, and minerals—but sugar makes up the majority. This high sugar content is what prevents honey from spoiling. If not sealed in a comb or jar, honey absorbs moisture from the air and eventually crystallizes, but crystallized honey is still usable if melted back into a liquid.

Honey has many internal and external uses. It’s a short-term energy booster (although similar to refined sugar, it might come with a corresponding “carb crash”); it treats a sore throat; it enhances vitamin A absorption; it strengthens the colon; it helps remove parasites; local honey can help treat seasonal allergies; and some say a little honey every day even boosts the immune system. Externally, honey is valued in natural skincare as a moisturizer and acne fighter. Thanks to its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, honey helps clean and heal minor wounds.

Whether or not he knew the sweet substance’s complexities since revealed by modern science, David knew its value when he compared it to God’s law. God’s versatile law applies to every life situation you might find yourself in. And like honey, God’s law doesn’t go bad!

KEY BIBLE TEXTS
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Psalms 19:9-10Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end. Psalms 119:33

ELLEN WHITE DEVOTIONAL LIBRARY

InformationTable of Contents

“We can have what Enoch had.

We can have Christ as our constant companion.”

The Shepherd knows His sheep. When we stumble, He lifts us up, binds our wounds, and leads us on to victory. By daily surrender to His will we can enjoy sweet communion with God. Our trembling hand in His, we walk side by side through trial and tempest into a future bright with promise.

“E’en though the path I may not see, Yet, Jesus, let me walk with Thee.”

Ellen White knew the Shepherd. She has nourished the Spirit of Millions with her deeply spiritual messages. Empasizing a different theme each month, this fresh compilation from her pen calls us into a deeper fellowship with God and equips us for the journey. Each devotional is a moment with the Master—another step in an ever—sweeter journey with Jesus.

InformationTable of Contents

Daily readings— drawn from letters, manuscripts, and other Ellen White sources— pull together to illustrate the background, purpose, and enormity of the great controversy battle. And, as the title suggests, each reading declares the power of God to overcome in the fierce conflict, despite the foreboding circumstances.

InformationTable of Contents

Prophets and priests, kings and apostles, parade though the inspired pages of this daily devotional. Arranged roughly in chronological order, each reading focuses on some decisive moment in salvation history, and shows how the lessons of the past illuminate our future. In the exploits and failures of saints and sinners we find counsel, comfort and hope for today a passing of the torch so that the same faith that blazed in God’s servants of old might burn anew in us.

InformationTable of Contents

This devotional book is devoted exclusively to the subject of Bible doctrines. Providing both inspiration and information, each month focuses on a different topic. The daily readings are selections from Ellen White’s previously published and unpublished writings that relate to the basic truths of Scripture. The book is extensively indexed with Scripture, topical, and outline indexes.

InformationTable of Contents

“As we make Christ our daily companion we shall feel that the powers of an unseen world are all around us; and by looking unto Jesus we shall become assimilated to His image. By beholding we become changed. The characters is softened, refined, and ennobled . . . The soul that turns to God for its help, its support, its power, by daily, earnest prayer, will have noble aspirations, clear perceptions of truth and duty, lofty purposes of action, and a continual hungering and thirsting after righteousness. By maintaining a connection with God, we shall be enabled to diffuse to others, through our association with them, the light, the peace, the serenity, that rule in our hearts” (p. 290).

May you find the serenity that comes from knowing the One whose Spirit inspired these pages.

InformationTable of Contents

This daily devotional book has been compiled largely from unpublished and out-of-print Spirit of Prophecy materials. Each day’s reading is designed to bring you into a closer connection with our Lord and give you a deeper understanding of His character. Sections include insight on Christ’s condescension for humanity, the work of the angels, how to maintain a wholly-devoted heart, and the special relationship God has with His church on Earth.

InformationTable of Contents

These daily readings each focus on the life and character of the Saviour, Jesus Christ. They lift Him up as our Teacher, Healer, King, and Redeemer. Each devotional entry is designed to bring the reader to a deeper, more complete understanding of and relationship with Him who bore our sins. For we know that “by beholding Jesus we become changed into His likeness.”

InformationTable of Contents

The hearts of God’s people, young and old, throb with intense longing for that day of deliverance so near at hand. With fast fulfilling prophecy confirming their faith in the imminence of our Lord’s return, the White Estate Trustees commissioned this compilation of readings clustering about the general theme of eschatology, with emphasis upon the coming of our Lord.

Key statements from Ellen G. White books, as well from many articles in the journals of the church are included. Numerous statements from unpublished manuscripts enrich the presentation.

InformationTable of Contents

A daily devotional book drawn from Mrs. White’s writings, this volume touches every part of the Christian’s life— from spiritual growth, to lessons drawn from the lives of Bible heroes, to our responsibilities to society. Many of the excerpts were taken from unpublished sources and articles, and though they focus on different points of life, they each give the same message of practical Christianity in daily life.

InformationTable of Contents

The Father’s love for humanity provides an endless theme for contemplation and study. This vital topic unfolds on every page of Our Father Cares. From the great sacrifice of giving His Son, to the calling we have as His children on earth, the study of His love for us personally will encourage and guide us on our upward journey.

InformationTable of Contents

This daily devotional classic is a call to holiness and a primer in the Christian virtues.

What is the relationship between faith and feeling? When does temptation become sin? What is God’s part and what is my part in salvation? How does the Christian relate to wealth, unfair criticism, or pain?

Ellen White warns against the pitfalls of the Christian path, explains how to overcome doubt, guilt, and selfishness, and motivates the reader with a golden chain of encouragement and assurance. Most of the material is taken from the unpublished letters and manuscript of the author. Your life will be changed by this inspired summons to a deeper commitment to Jesus Christ.

InformationTable of Contents

A mirror turned away from the sun cannot reflect its rays. And a human being turned away from God’s Son cannot reflect His love to others.

As Christians, our responsibility is to share with others what God has shown to us. Ellen G. White had much to say about this responsibility—and the transforming effect of beholding Christ. This complete change of heart affects not only the spiritual life but also the physical, mental, and social.

“When you remember that Christ has paid the price of His own blood for your redemption and for the redemption of others, you will be moved to catch the bright rays of His righteousness, that you may shed them upon the pathway of those around you.”

InformationTable of Contents

From the inspired pen of Ellen G. White flowed a steady stream of messages of encouragement, counsel, instruction, and enlightenment. The gems in this collection were gleaned from her books, periodical articles, and unpublished letters and manuscripts.

Each reading holds forth the highest possible standard of spiritual attainment, offering to every son and daughter of God “an outlay of heaven’s treasures, an excellency of power” that will place the redeemed “higher than the angels who had not fallen.”

In every paragraph is heard the Spirit’s call to lift the cross—and ”those who lift the cross will find that . . . the cross lifts them.”

InformationTable of Contents

More than half of the book is drawn from the wealth of inspired material in the articles from her pen that appeared during her long lifetime in such periodicals as the Review and Herald, Youth’s Instructor, and Signs of the Times. About one third is drawn from unpublished manuscripts and letters in the custody of the trustees of the Ellen G. White writings, under whose direction the volume has been prepared.

Many of these unpublished items are from personal heart-to-heart messages sent to individuals–messages that come to us today with the same earnest appeal, the same tender admonition and encouragement, as when they were written. Of special interest are several pages which contain extracts from early morning entries in Ellen White’s diary, and give the reader significant glimpses into her personal prayer life.

InformationTable of Contents

The devotional writings of Ellen G. White are a rich source of inspiration to millions of people throughout the world. This volume is unique in that the readings are not clustered around a central theme, but are arranged according to the day on which they were originally written.

They are drawn largely from unpublished letters and manuscripts, and each reading provides the name and position of the individual to whom the message was originally addressed. This collection includes advice to church administrators, counsel to Ellen White’s newlywed son Edson, cautions for the bold, and hope for the discouraged.

Always the author’s purpose is to encourage the reader to aim for the highest standard of Christian discipleship.

InformationTable of Contents

“Looking unto Jesus, not only as our Example, but as the Author and Finisher of our faith, let us go forward, having confidence that He will supply us with all the strength that is needed for every duty.”

Throughout her life Ellen G. White continually pointed to Jesus as our hope and salvation. Whether she was offering messages of reproof for errant believers or providing instruction for the faithful, her recurring theme was Christ—and Christ alone. In these excerpts from her letters and manuscripts, our thoughts are lifted heavenward as we are encouraged to “follow on step by step, with our eyes fixed upon our Leader.” Truly, we are capable of being genuine Christians only when our attention is focused on Christ.

InformationTable of Contents

The promise of the Holy Spirit has been cherished by all generations of God’s people since the time of the apostles. In this daily devotional, Ellen White expounds on the importance of this “most essential gift,” the effects of His presence in our lives, and what we can do to co-work together with Him.
