Life

Jesus is the way, the truth, and life, and He has given us life eternal! Come and stir up the river of life that is on the inside of you today.

What God wants from you

Ah, the pressures of life... Sixty-hour workweeks. Razor-thin balances in the checkbook every month. Children and/or grandchildren who call for unending, boundless bursts of...

How to Treat Anxiety with a Healing Dose of Scripture

Anxiety may well be the norm for those who live in uncertain times. And yet there is a Scriptural answer for it. Perhaps we should think of anxiety not so much as depression as a blend of worry and fear. It’s a first-cousin to stress. Anxiety is fear about something that may or may not happen in the future. And it doesn’t go away or cave-in when you become a believer in Christ, in the same way that temptation actually increases after salvation.

You can make a difference

Overwhelming odds can make cowards of us all. Because there is so much to be done, we can easily lose heart and do nothing at all. Because there are so many people in the world to reach, it is easy to forget that God wants to use us to touch those within our sphere of responsibility. Have you ever felt like that? I have too.

Together in the Christian life

Regular church attendance should never be viewed as something you do to gain God’s merit. We are not saved by good works. Instead, it should provide the catalyst for spiritual growth.

The Suffering Leader

The suffering leader sounds like an un-American idea. In our paradigm, leaders flourish, whether on Wall Street or in the house church. Even in the spiritual realm, we are susceptible to expectations that flourishing leaders have flourishing lives—yet we know better.

A country that honors God

Contrary to popular belief, what actually protects a nation is not military strength but the righteousness of its people and government. When the Lord is honored in a nation, He is exalted, and the people are protected.

The Key to Spiritual Stability in the Christian Life

As you prayerfully saturate your mind with God's Word, it begins more and more to control your thinking and behavior.

A Rescue, A Rainbow

There are numerous servants of God mentioned in the Bible, but only two of them are said to have “walked with God”—Enoch and Noah. Further descriptions of Noah say he “was a righteous man, blameless in his time” (Gen. 6:9). Of all the people on earth in that day, only “Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord” (v. 8). He was a remarkable man in his time, but he’s also someone we should aspire to be like today.

How to Love Your Neighbor

As we study the characteristics of the Good Samaritan, let’s ask ourselves if these qualities are true of us as well. He opened his eyes. Although all three men physically saw the critically wounded man, only the Samaritan looked and stopped to help. Before we can meet needs, we must be aware of them.

What to Do When Life Becomes Dry

Are you tired of your life being dry, confused and without direction? Are you weary of having to strive for everything in life? It may be because the river of life inside of you is stopped up.
