Discipline is an ambiguous word, easily misunderstood because its two major applications are so at variance with one another. In a good sense, discipline is what athletes do — training their bodies to achieve top performance through practice, hard work, persistence, attention to diet and daily living habits — in short, they demand much of themselves without approaching punishment. Anyone who chooses to do something well — fine art painting, knitting, gardening, cooking — disciplines...

Words are powerful, but not in the way prosperity preachers or New Age advocates claim. While words themselves do not convey any ability to create reality, simply because we utter them (e.g., “I CLAIM this blessing!”), they affect those around us because they soothe and heal, or they hurt and damage. Every day, regardless of what our job is, and whether or not we are involved in an official “ministry,” Christians have an opportunity to touch people’s souls by, literally and figuratively,...

Do you ever feel like you just do not know what to do? You’ve been following a path that has felt right to you for a long time and doors of opportunity have opened, confirming the rightness of your choices. But then, suddenly, like lightening in a storm, adversity strikes…challenges appear and doors slam shut in your face at almost every turn. Uncertainty and doubt emerge. Fear, too, and an uneasiness in your gut that keeps you up at night, interrupts sleep, and occupies your every waking...

Recently, I pulled up to my local bank drive-though, opened the “pneumatic tube carrier,” as it is known, placed inside the container my bank transaction, and pressed the “Send” button. The little elevator doors closed and I watched as the container began ascending the tube. First, slowly, and then it began to pick up speed. All of a sudden, however, instead of increasing in speed, it began to slow to a stop and there it remained suspended, as it were, at least for a few sections anyway,...

Why are we to believe that the Creator of the world loves us? He is the one that created you in His likeness. He is the one that will dramatically change your life. When we are down and feel lonely–life can feel pretty hollow. The enemy will do whatever is necessary to make you feel that God has forsaken you. He tried to convince Jesus of this in the wilderness and on the cross. King David experienced pain and began to believe God was not with him during painful moments. David wrote about...

Satan has a favorite weapon to attack believers: unbelief. If you’ve ever felt like you were under attack by a negative force beyond yourself, that’s Satan working to break you down. The enemy is a deceiver and will use any tactic he can to get you to renounce Christ. He shudders every time you confess to God. Satan attempts to steal our faith, by tempting us, discouraging us, making us doubt God’s goodness, distracting us and dividing us. He employs various strategies to attack our faith...

The Bible states that society will completely disintegrate in the end times, becoming as terrible and evil as it was in the days of Noah. The Apostle Paul taught that society will descend into a black hole of violence, paganism and immorality. He heavily warned that “lovers of self, lovers of money, and lovers of pleasure” will be abundant and people will become “boastful, arrogant, and unholy” (2 Timothy 3:1-5). Does this all sound familiar? It might remind you of the evening news....

Among the scriptures in Revelation lies a pivotal prophesy with the Seven Seals, which lead us step-by-step to the second coming of Jesus Christ. Near the end of his life, John received a vision from the Lord that he transcribed into what we know as the book of Revelation. It contains vivid and colorful descriptions of what is to come and the redeeming promise that awaits to those who treasure and uphold it’s contents which lead us step-by-step to the second coming of Jesus Christ. The First...

Millions, if not billions, of human beings are under such stress that they experience anxiety, phobias, and depression. They are miserable and unhappy. They are not experiencing peace of mind. What about you? How many people find it difficult to cope with everyday stress? Do you find it difficult to find peace of mind and tranquility? The American Psychological Association gave this report in February 2015: “Forty-two percent of adults say they are not doing enough or are not sure whether...

He died on January 28, 814. Many years later, archaeologists discovered the tomb of Charlemagne, the great king and emperor of France. When the tomb was opened, after being closed for centuries, the men who entered it found something amazing. They found certain treasures of the kingdom. But in the center of the large vault was a marble throne, and seated on the throne was the skeleton of Charlemagne, with an open Bible on his lap, and a bony finger pointing at Matthew 18:26, “For what shall...
