    Are You Ready to Seek Him?

    Are you a God-seeker? The ancient psalmist is urgently calling God-seekers: “Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continuously” (Ps. 105:4).

    Why God Created Marriage for a Man and Woman

    With divorce and remarriage rising, and the very definition of “marriage” being debated, it’s time we review matrimony’s biblical origins. Scripture reveals marriage two ways: God’s and man’s. Genesis unveils marriage God’s way. Perceiving man’s need of a loving companion, God decreed, “It is not good that the man should be alone” (Gen. 2:18). So

    As we embark on another New Year, do you wonder what tomorrow will bring? Do you find it hard to maintain your peace about the future when most of what you hear is bad news?

  • All That Call on Thy Name

    All That Call on Thy Name

    One of the unofficial names given to Christ’s followers in the New Testament was “all that call on thy name” (Acts 9:14). What does this unofficial but inspired label say about us? It reveals Jesus’s followers are a praying people. Some folks worry, reason, or imitate their way through problems. Others steal, cheat, or bribe

    Are you faithfully following and serving God, yet find yourself in the fight of your life, opposed and slandered by unreasonable believers or backslidden Christians?

    How to Guard the Treasure of Your Relationship With God

    The most precious thing in Jesus’ earthly life was His union with His heavenly Father: “I and my father are one [one in essence or nature; also at one, or unified]” (John 10:30). It was everything to Him. That sacred bond preceded all His other relationships, sustained His rich spiritual life, and empowered His diverse

    Overwhelmed and undone, Job cried, “Have pity upon me, O ye my friends” (Job 19:21). His present problems were twofold: his awesome troubles and awful self-pity.

  • Another Chance

    Another Chance

    If we humbly confess our sins and failures, the Lord faithfully forgives us and immediately restores our fellowship with Him: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). But He doesn’t stop there. He immediately schedules another chance…
