Paul Asher is a talented reporter who is having a crisis of faith. He once believed in God, but a visit to war-torn Afghanistan changed all that. He now questions everything he was taught about religion. He also has a crumbling marriage. And he’s battling emotions and thoughts from seeing soldiers die. What will it take to rescue him? Perhaps an interview with the Almighty would help. That’s exactly what Paul gets: three sit-down interviews with God, 30 minutes apiece. Will it help? An...

1. An Opening Prayer for a Meeting Father, Thank You for every seat that has been filled here, today. For each mind and heart that fills the presence of this room, we thank You. Only You truly know what we are setting out to accomplish today. We have an idea, a vision, hints, and daily instructions. We have talents, abilities, and time to work. However, only You can see in perfect detail the end of every beginning. Every project, every season, every life. Nothing is ever in vain, for even mistakes...

1. The Easter story is 100 percent true. The evidence for the resurrection is overwhelming. Overwhelming! We don’t have space here to go into all the fulfilled prophecies and logic-based arguments for the Resurrection. Books like Cold-Case Christianity for Kids and The Case for Christ for Kids do an excellent job of explaining that. It’s critical that our kids understand that Jesus really was God in human form, that He really died, and that He was miraculously raised to life again. They need...

1. The Resurrection Means Jesus is Alive This may sound like I’m stating the obvious but think deeply about this for a moment. Paul said that if the resurrection didn’t happen, we are most to be pitied. Everything we’ve believed and built our lives upon is a horrendous trick, a lie of demonic proportions. But the resurrection of Jesus IS true, which means that Jesus is alive, which means that everything he promised will happen. It’s not a myth, fairy tale, or children’s tale. Christ...

Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising loving kindness, judgment and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight” (Jeremiah 9:23-24). A famous British judge, known for his strong belief in God, sometimes encountered people who said they didn’t believe in God. He always asked them to describe...

Hippocrates said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” and his words make perfect sense. Food is a fuel necessary for an energy boost, but it also supplies our body with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, enzymes, and other nutrients vital for our health and wellbeing. Everything you eat can either improve all aspects of your health or make things worse. Not only can food do wonders for your health, weight, brain power, but it also has the tremendous potential to...

POWER is something many of us take for granted. For example, we give little thought to the electrical power that gives us light and heat or to the convenience of plugging in any electrical appliance we may own. Only an unexpected power outage brings home to us that without power, man’s cities would practically shut down. Most of the electricity on which we depend comes indirectly from the earth’s most reliable power source—the sun. Every second this solar reactor consumes five million tons...

ISRAELITE priest Ezra was an outstanding researcher, scholar, copyist, and teacher of the Law. For Christians today he is also a fine example of whole-souled service. How so? In that he maintained his godly devotion even while living in Babylon, a city filled with false gods and demon worship. Ezra’s godly devotion did not just happen. He worked at it. Indeed, he tells us that he “had prepared his heart to consult the law of the Lord and to do it.”—Ezra 7:10. Like Ezra, God’s people...
