J U L Y 6 “And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church.” — Ephesians 1:22

The Christian View Of Politics

Have you ever wondered if you should always obey the laws of our government? This is an important question because the government influences almost every aspect of our lives. To help us answer this question, the Bible delineates a few principles. Principle number one: The Triune God is sovereign over the whole universe. He is sovereign over every area of life, not just the Church. This includes the government. Principle number two:... More
J U L Y 5 “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.” — Romans 13:1-5

Government: A Fearful Master

Do you ever listen to the news and find it hard to believe that God has ordained all governments? Whatever our opinions about governments around the world, the Bible tells us that God has appointed all governing authorities and we must submit to them. The Bible teaches three truths about government that our founding fathers clearly understood, but which today have been blurred and obscured. If we understand these truths, we will place... More
J U L Y 4 “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” — Psalm 11:3

America: A Christian Nation

Do you ever wonder about the direction in which the United States is heading, worried that the fabric of our society is fraying around the edges? If you’re like me, you may read the newspaper headlines and shake your head in dismay at the choices our fellow citizens make. Our country wasn’t always this way. Take an honest inventory of our history, and you can have no doubts that America began as a Christian nation. The early... More
J U L Y 3 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord …” — Psalm 33:12

Blessed Is The Nation

This time of year is always a perfect time to dwell on the founding of our nation. Did you know that God’s providence played an enormous part in the settling and founding of this country? George Washington alluded to God’s providence many times as he recounted our nation’s development. Let’s look at just one stunning example, forgotten by many today. In the first year of the Revolutionary War, America almost lost the... More
J U L Y 2 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” — 2 Timothy 3:16

How I Know The Bible Is God’s Word

The more I read the Bible, the more I realize what an incredible book it is. Charles Wesley, the great hymn writer, said the Bible was written either by angels and good men, by demons and bad men, or by God. I am convinced that God wrote the Bible, and I have a lot of evidence to back up my conviction. I believe that God wrote the Bible, because in the Old Testament alone God says twenty-six hundred times that He did so. We can trust the... More
J U L Y 1 “… It is enough. Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers.” — 1 Kings 19:4

Discouragement

Has discouragement dogged your path recently? You’re probably all too familiar with that sick feeling: A friend has let you down or the promotion has fallen through or your car just clutched its chest and died. Life often seems riddled with letdowns, and if you haven’t experienced such discouragement yet, you’re in for a rude awakening because, sooner or later, discouragement elbows its way into all of our lives. Even... More
J U N E 3 0 “And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken …” — Hebrews 3:5

Faithful And True

Have you ever struggled to remain faithful to God in certain areas of your life? To be faithful literally means to be “full of faith.” The practical outworking of faithfulness is remaining true to God and His Word regardless of the cost or adverse circumstances. Consider one man of faith, General William Booth, who founded the Salvation Army. In his later years, he lost his eyesight. He visited the doctor for help, but the... More
