Randy Alcorn's Blog: Christian Life

Blessed are the Peacemakers

PeacemakersI spoke this weekend at the Peacemaker Conference in Charlotte, NC. Peacemakers works to resolve conflicts within churches, Christian ministries and between brothers and sisters who wish to obey God’s command not to bring before civil authorities conflicts between Christians (1 Corinthians 6).

 

Blessed Savior: A Prayer by Thomas Reade

PrayerI love the Puritans for their emphasis on God's greatness and grace. Listen to this prayer of Thomas Reade.

 

The Blessing of Gratitude, the Curse of Complaining

crying babyThe child in this picture is NOT one of my grandchildren. But he pretty much captures what a lot of us, older and younger, behave like when we don’t get our way. (And have you noticed, we often DON’T get our way…which is actually good.)

Books as Seeds: The Power of Giving Away Literature

Giving away books and bookletsOne of the things I often do is give away books and booklets to people I meet. Wonderful things have happened over the years because of this simple act, and I’ve come to see books and literature as “seeds” we can sow to share the good news about Jesus. Not all of them will grow and bear fruit, but some of them will.

Building a Biblical Worldview

read BibleActs 17:11 says that "Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true." We should come to God's Word with "great eagerness."

"A Call to Anguish" from David Wilkerson

David WilkersonAs a young Christian, forty years ago, I read David Wilkerson’s The Cross and the Switchblade and Run, Baby, Run, written by Nicky Cruz, a New York City gang warlord who David had led to the Lord.

Heroes are people who stand courageously for what is right, often against the tide of public opinion, and at great cost to themselves.

 

Charles Spurgeon on Security

C. H. SpurgeonThis devotional is from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening: Daily Readings. There’s hardly any man outside of Scripture itself who speaks to me like Spurgeon does. I highly recommend Morning and Evening as a daily dose of great theology. You can also sign up to receive them each day by email.

“Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”

Choosing Gratitude: A Must Read

Choosing GratitudeYears ago, I determined that I wanted to write a book on the importance of gratitude in the Christian life. But not long ago I read Nancy Leigh DeMoss’s book Choosing Gratitude and realized I no longer needed to!

Combating the Spirit of Entitlement with Gratitude

Thankfulness in a culture of entitlement / tree in desertThe Israelites in the wilderness are unbearably similar to us. When their circumstances are good, they see God. But as soon as their circumstances turn bad, they forget Him and all they have to be thankful for. It’s as if present trials blot out and negate God’s past track record of faithfulness.
