The Example of Prayer

In The Master Plan of Evangelism, Robert E. Coleman explains how Jesus showed through His prayer life how His disciples should live: Surely it was no accident that Jesus often let His disciples see Him conversing with the Father. They could see the strength which it gave to His life, and though they could not understand fully what it was all about, they must have realized that this was part of His secret of life. Note that Jesus did not force the lesson upon them, but rather He just kept praying until at last the disciples got so hungry that... Read more >>

Persevere in Prayer

Jesus once told a story about a widow who repeatedly asked a judge for justice against an adversary: “For some time [the judge] refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually wear me out with her coming!” And the Lord [Jesus] said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night?” (Luke 18:4-7) Read more >>

The Hope for America

I really didn’t have a lot to do with the church during my childhood. It was not something I was familiar with. But after I became a Christian at age 17, there was a very persistent guy on my high-school campus who made himself my friend. He walked up and told me that he noticed I had become a Christian. Then he said that he wanted to take me to church. I said, “I really don’t want to go to church. That’s OK.” But he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Read more >>

Can You Relate?


Danny Cahill - Author, Teacher and Winner of Season 8 of NBC‘s The Biggest Loser!: This morning, I woke up and began reading an article.  It talked about two people who knew the same person in different ways.  Two different people can know someone in completely different ways and on completely different levels. The article sounded as though they were talking about a different man! This opened my eyes to something that I’d like to share. While in the airport, I sat next to a man named Joe who was stressed out about something.  When I asked where he was... Read more >>

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


You should know, that on Monday January 18, 2016, we celebrate the life and legacy of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. I extend warm greetings to my African-American brothers and sisters and to all people of good will who follow Dr. King's example.You should also know, that on April 4, 1968, Dr. King was taken from us, much too quickly and much too violently. Yet, the manner in which he left us is not what I wish to dwell on as we commemorate his life. Rather, I believe it is important to reflect on the lessons he left... Read more >>

Happy New Year 2016!

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you." Psalm 32:8The prospect of a new year could be both disquieting and exciting. It could be exciting because it could be a year filled with new possibilities and opportunities and, at the same time, disquieting if you face the unknown future with anxiety, wondering whether the problems and disasters of the past will repeat themselves.

The Lord is Our Provider

We trust you had a blessed time as we celebrated the birth of our Savior last week. With the New Year fast approaching, we wanted to share a few helpful insights from our friend, Nancy Leigh DeMoss:I am so thankful for the many valuable lessons my father, Arthur S. DeMoss, taught me about a Biblical perspective on money and material possessions. As both a successful businessman and an earnest follower of Jesus Christ, he was a living illustration of those principles. As I look back on my dad’s life, I see several reasons for the blessing of God on his... Read more >>
