August 28 And He died for all, that those who live should not from now on live for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. — 2 Corinthians 5:15

Others' Day

General William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army, wrote a telegram when he was on his death bed and had it sent worldwide to every officer in the Salvation Army. It consisted of just one word: "Others." After I mentioned the telegram in a sermon, a young lady came up to me several weeks later and said, "You know, when you preached about Booth's telegram, I decided right then and there that I was going to make that day "Others' Day."...

"Seeing is Believing"

There is an old mariners' chart drawn in 1525 by an unknown cartographer that now resides in the British museum. It depicts the coast of some forbidding and unknown continent. The cartographer wrote in various places on the chart, "Here be giants" and again, "Here be fiery scorpions," and, "Here be dragons." Somehow, during his lifetime, it fell into the hands of the then-renowned scientist, Sir John Franklin, a Christian, who put a line... More
August 26 Every one of them has turned aside; they are altogether corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. — Psalm 53:3

Plunging Headlong Away from God

God is the source of knowledge and wisdom. But we seem to be in a major hurry to forget that these days. Since the early 1960s, America has been plunging headlong away from God, religion, and the Bible—at least, officially—into materialism, atheism, evolutionism, and a godless secular philosophy of life. We are reaping the terrible consequences of that philosophy. My friends, the seeds of secularism, grounded in evolution, have... More
August 25 And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. — 1 John 4:16

God is Love

Truly, the most profound words ever spoken are—not with complex syntax or intricate convoluted grammar—but a simple sentence: "God is love." Only three words: "God is love." And those words, like a magician's wand, forever changed the way the world thought. But they were backed up by deeds; the love of God was manifested in the life and love of Jesus Christ We are so used to hearing about God's love for us that we view it as... More
August 24 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with gratitude, make your requests known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will protect your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:6-7

A Message for All Worriers

Are you a worrier? Perhaps you are beginning to realize that you have been victimized. Our enemy wants us to give in to fear and to let go of our trust in God. We must cling to Him. Who was this that made such a statement? He did not know about the kind of problems that I face in my life. Well, maybe and maybe not. His name was Paul. He wrote these words from a dungeon in a Roman prison where he was incarcerated for Christ. Ahead of him he... More

In His Dwelling Place

God invites us to know His protection, as seen in Psalm 91. I would want you to understand that this psalm is not saying that everybody has the protection of the Almighty. It is not even saying that all Christians have this protection, since apparently only a few, relatively speaking, really enjoy it. As Spurgeon said, "Here are the elect of the elect." Here are the three of the twelve. Here are those special ones who enjoy this protection... More

The Battle for the Children’s Education

Did you realize that teachers in the public schools were being encouraged to become proselytizers for a new religion? Do you realize that secular humanism has been virtually established as the state national religion of America? In a classic statement in  The Humanist   Magazine,  a humanist educator said this: I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by...
