6/8/2016 This morning over breakfast, my wife and I had a discussion about music, specifically, music used in worship. It brought to mind a Christian Bookseller’s convention I attended years ago in Anaheim, California… My boss at the time was the owner of a retail Christian bookstore, as well as a publisher and wholesale distributor of Christian books. We were excited about escaping the routine of retail, and enjoying a week in California. I was …

By Greg Laurie But when His disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste?

Expressions of Praise

Greg Holt BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS 0 Comments

Psalms 34:1-3 Glorifying the Lord is not limited to worshipping in church. In fact, praise ought to permeate the believer’s life. One obvious way that we praise the Lord is with our voice.

Written by Bradlee Dean “It remains to be seen what God will do with a man who gives himself up wholly to Him.” -D. L. Moody America, can you imagine if 78% of those who claim to be Christians actually loved God (John 14:21) enough to obey Him (Titus 1:16; 1 John 2:4), what this country would be like? I can!
