    John 18:33-37: MY KING IS JESUS CHRIST 36 Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place.” Who do you think is going to win the election? It gets pretty intense this time more

    Contributed by Don Schultz on Mar 30, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    We have many reasons to doubt. Here's one reason to believe.

    Are you a skeptical person? Do you believe everything you hear, right away? Or does it take awhile before you believe something to be true?

    Contributed by Don Schultz on Mar 9, 2011
    based on 4 ratings

    Jesus makes big promises, and we struggle to believe in the midst of our troubles and setbacks of life. Jesus gives us the strength to believe, and fills us with the hope of seeing God's glory someday.

    How quick are you to believe big promises? I think there’s a certain part of all of us that’s a little hesitant, a little skeptical, to believe every promise that we hear. Have you ever believed a promise, only to have that promise broken? “I promise you that we will give you more

    based on 8 ratings

    Jesus describes "greatness" in a very different way than the world.

    Jesus’ Way to Achieve Greatness Are you good at what you do? Just think of all the things you do every day – what is it that you do for a living? Would you say that you are good at it? Have you achieved greatness in your profession yet? What about the things you do outside of more

    HOW MAJESTIC IS YOUR NAME! A number of years ago I was a pastor of a mission church, and I was doing some canvassing – just going door-to-door, introducing myself, seeing if the Holy Spirit might open up a door to me as I walked around. At one house, a man answered, and after learning more
