The Power of the Holy Spirit

Luke 24:44-53

The principle we will explore today is basic but so powerful that it determines whether we experience victory in our lives.

You are probably familiar with the book The Little Engine That Could, in which a small engine keeps repeating the words "I think I can." By...

Passing on Power

Early in our nation, our Congressmen and Senator’s tenure averaged approximately 4 years. According to a Congressional Research Service report, tenure more recently, however, has increased to 10 years with multiple members of Congress serving more than 40 years!

Power can become harmful to the nation and to the individual. Today’s a good day to reflect on leaders like President George Washington who didn’t have any trou...

"But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” - Matthew 24:13

“I was prepared to eat bitterness when I went to China, but not to eat loss,” said Mabel Williamson. “Eating bitterness” symbolized suffering and hardship. “Eating loss” meant giving up the right to one’s self. Jesus warns that following Him is risky living by worldly standards. Real discipleship means “eating loss,” taking up your c...

Truth and Freedom

For Superman, life is a “never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way.” But for ordinary guys like us, truth is one battle we don’t have to fight. Truth has already been fought for . . . and won.

Like the truth that “there is no one righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10). The truth that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)...

Accepting God's Gift of Love

1 John 4:7-12

Many people simply can't believe that the Lord loves them. Others believe that He loves them, but only when they are pleasing Him in some way. Why is it so hard for us to accept His unconditional love?

Desires of the Diligent

As a young boy I saw a baseball glove in a catalog that I desperately desired. But I didn’t have any money. Then I learned I could earn the same baseball glove if I sold boxes of Christmas cards.

The number of boxes I needed to sell seemed attainable in the beginning, but it became much harder than I thought going house to house. I suffered many disappointments, and, I considered quitting, but the allure of that baseball mit...

Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases... - Psalms 103:2

He's Coming--Now What?

By Skip Heitzig

At about four o'clock every afternoon, my mother used to say the same thing to me: "Your father will be home soon." Those words were either very exciting to me or struck fear in my heart. If I was living well that day, I looked forward to seeing Dad. But if I was pushing my boundaries, it was more like, "Uh-oh."

Do you look forward to the future? Jesus is coming. Judgment is coming. A new heaven and a new eart...
