By Greg Laurie “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?” —John 4:29 There is a lot of power in the simplicity of a changed life. After Jesus spoke with the woman at the well in Samaria, she immediately went out and began to tell others. The Bible tells us that she “left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling …

By John Miltenberger 8/21/2017 There is wisdom in hoping for the best, yet preparing for the worst, yet many today teach that to prepare for the worst is the preoccupation of spiritually negative minds. I would agree – if that ‘preparation’ becomes indeed a ‘preoccupation’. I know many Christians today who have preoccupied themselves out of their primary occupation, that is, the total and absolute veneration of Jesus as the always and forever focal point …

By Greg Laurie Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” —Luke 10:2 It seems, unfortunately, that the church could be compared to a giant football game where 60,000 people in the stands watch 22 people do all the work.

A nudge from the Holy Spirit is more than mere intuition. It’s the voice of God speaking to us through the Holy Spirit. It’s an invitation to join Him in His redemptive work. This spiritual nudge usually starts off as a feeling. Then, a clear thought or action formulates. The nudge remains steady and will not be ignored. Constant, it grows heavier and presses down.

Four Things That Are Not Part of Making America Great Again In full support of President Trump’s declaration to “Make America great again,” the following list is not meant to be an indictment of his administration, but rather a call to stay on course, make some re-adjustments and some much needed fine tuning of the original declaration.

By Jerry Newcombe, D.Min. 5/31/17 Recently, my long-time pastor’s wife died. Anne Lewis Kennedy, the widow of Dr. D. James Kennedy, passed away on May 16. She outlived her husband by ten years. Ironically, as a young person, she had said, “I’ll never marry a minister.” She later recounted, “My older sister married a Presbyterian minister, and I did not want to live that kind of ‘fish-bowl’ life. God does have a sense of humor.” …

What do we know about Jesus? What does Scripture say? Historical writings by Tacitus and Josephus validate His existence. Historians called the followers of Jesus, Christians. They believed, as we do, Jesus was the Son of God in flesh. http://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/people-cultures-in-the-bible/jesus-historical-jesus/did-jesus-exist/ As believers, we recognize the Bible as the inspired Word of God.  It is a historic record of the Hebrew/Jewish people’s history with God, the life and teachings of Jesus, and the beginning of the …

The Bible tells us we are aliens and strangers in this world. This is a reminder to all Christians that heaven is our eternal home. The Greek translation for alien is a sojourner, stranger, and foreigner. A foreigner is one who lives in a place without the right of citizenship. Our citizenship is with God and in the heavenly realm. “Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wave …
