Many see no need for a religious figure who lived two millennia ago. He did not help them get their first job, buy their first house, or find their first wife. They ask, “what has he ever done for me?” He does not provide entertainment, cure sickness, distribute money, grant the wishes of dying children, or lower taxes. They think, “why would I need Jesus if he does not help with the things most important to me?” Even Christians who claim his name, appoint him their co-pilot, or use him...

FACT NO. 1—That the Bible MUST be rightly divided in order for it to make sense. Notice what it says: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the Word of truth” (II Tim. 2:15). This is one of the cardinal rules for interpreting the whole Bible. Neglect of this rule or a faulty use of it will lead to only one result, CONFUSION, since our God is not the author of confusion. The reason for a right division of the Bible is because...

Some people like to cobble together their own “Jesus” out of select verses in the Bible and ignore the rest. But here are 4 undeniable truths about Jesus that show what He is really like. This is the Jesus I have learned to know. Paul writes about another type of Jesus in 2 Corinthians 11:4. “For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted – you may...

The very title, “Five Simple Steps to Discover God’s Plans for You,” likely has some of you already objecting. “You’ve got to be kidding! Simple? Discovering God’s plans?” Others of you are already thinking about your own questions: Who should I marry? Should I go back to school? Is this the place where God wants me to serve? Should I start my own business? Should I homeschool my kids? When should I buy a home? When should I retire? Where is God calling...

He conversed with Adam in the first garden. He told Noah to build an ark. He spoke to Moses in a burning bush. He promised Abraham a son. Paul heard His voice on the way to Damascus. But does God still speak to us today? If so, how? When? Where? Often when people ask this question, they are talking about an audible voice. And God can do that. He can do anything He wants. He’s God. Why then, can’t I hear God speak to me audibly, someone might ask? I can’t answer questions that the Bible does...

“Get over it!” “Move on!” “The past is gone!” Well-meaning friends may offer you their best unsolicited advice, but their words hurt. Why? The past still haunts you. Are new beginnings possible? Is healing a reality? How do we confidently release the past and embrace the future? How do we find the strength to “press on”? I’ll be the first to admit that some gut-wrenching issues in my life have taken time and even Christian counseling in order to heal and move forward again. So...

I could share some stories from my life or the lives of others that might inspire you. And sometimes I do that. But today I’d rather encourage you with some truths about God and His character. Here are six truths about God that can change your life if you believe and act upon them: 1. God’s Love Is Unfailing “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love, I have drawn you to myself” (Jeremiah 31:3, NLT). There’s nothing you can do to destroy God’s love...

Here are my top seven Bible verses referring to the last day or the end times, sometimes called the end of the age. Matthew 24:10-12 “And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” During Jesus’ so-called Olivet Prophecy, He was telling the disciples that there would come a time where many false prophets or teachers will rise up...

Picture this: you feel like you’re supposed to go do missions work in South America. You might even say you feel called to it. The only problem is, you don’t have enough money to go. So, of course, you set yourself to praying; asking God to provide funding. You may even ask your friends and family to pray for funding too. Weeks pass. Months pass. You raise some money, but not enough. What happened? Were you not called to missions work after all? Should you have prayed more? Used different...

The Bible says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). As Christians, we are followers of Christ, and we are all called to live according to God’s law; we are called to live a life of service to God and our fellow man. But sometimes in the midst of life and our own shortcomings, we fall off course with God and have trouble hearing God’s voice. But nothing is more important than God’s...
