When Divine Appointments Don’t Feel Pleasant

By Randy Alcorn | August 18, 2017
I’ve been encouraged to pray, even if briefly, for many people I see in passing and don’t know. This I do know—God created them, loves them, and desires them to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4).

Encouragement to Men to Study the Bible and Theology, and Find Great Happiness

By Randy Alcorn | August 2, 2017
Many Christian men would agree that they’re experts in business, hunting, fishing, football, or cars. Sadly, however, even those who attend Bible-teaching churches may know very little about the Bible and theology.

By Jon Bloom | July 17, 2017
This blog by my friend Jon Bloom is one of those that I resonated with from start to finish. Hope you enjoy it, and take it to heart. In these days in which we live, it is so true, so relevant, and so important for all of us.

God’s Works of Art Point to Him

By Randy Alcorn | June 2, 2017
If we might endlessly ponder an artist’s rendition of a person, such as the Mona Lisa, shouldn’t we ponder all the more, and benefit from pondering, the wonder in the face of real people we see daily? And in particular, the marvelous person and work of Christ? 

The Cumulative Effect of Our Little Choices

By Randy Alcorn | May 8, 2017
Have you ever seen a sink hole? Cars can be parked on a street day after day, and everything appears normal, then one day the asphalt caves in and cars disappear into a gigantic hole. Everybody says, “That hole came out of nowhere.” But they’re wrong.
