The devil is not impersonal like stones or bureaucracies; he is a non-person. The Devil has become all that God is not; he is not beyond personality—he is without it. His purpose in creation is not to destroy God; he knows that he cannot do that. He wants to draw us into the vortex of

William Pitt was one England’s great prime ministers and a great intellect. He was a friend of William Wilberforce, who was a great proponent of abolition because of his Christian convictions. Pitt was a nominal Christian, as most were in his day, but Christianity did not mean much to him.

As we look back over the centuries, there are few cities that stand out above the rest as outstanding; worthy of being remembered throughout the generations. Some of these cities, like Athens Greece, are remembered for their greatness in influencing the world as a whole. Some, like Paris or

When I was very young, I remember swimming at a lake during a Gregory family reunion. I know, the thought of such a reunion is more than some of you can stomach. At the lake, there was a dock. I would walk a little ways out on the dock, jump in the water, and then walk back to shore. Each time

I can remember two separate mornings in my life, when I woke up early because I couldn’t breathe.
When I woke, my lungs had stopped breathing and I realized they weren’t taking commands from my brain. So I darted out of bed, standing in the middle of the room with my mouth wide open, prompting my

I talked about the wealthy CEO who is wondering if there is more out there, the happy family that is actually falling apart because no one understands them, the successful entrepreneur who is unfulfilled in his job, and the popular student who even though everyone wants to be like them they are

There are many people who would like to think that their redemption needs to come through Mary or some other former saints who have not even raised from the dead! They would like to think that their redemption and eternity depends on how good of a life THEY can live - whether they can MAKE UP for

I like the bumper sticker that says, "Jesus is the answer, but what is the question?" The truth is that it doesn’t matter what is the question. He is the answer to all of the major questions of life.
A rather vain student went to his professor and asked him a very technical theological question.

HAVE YOU FOUND JESUS?
One Sunday afternoon there was a drunken man who was staggering down a country path. He came upon a baptismal service at a pond. There were many to be baptized that day and the drunk, not knowing what was going on, got in the line to be baptized. Finally it was the
In court, bearing witness is telling the truth about what you've seen and heard. John the Baptizer was doing the same about Jesus. If we witness, we can tell others about something the Lord has done in our lives, whether relating to Salvation or some other matter of His

SERVING SAVES A SOUL
One of the best ways to do these good things is to get involved in Vacation Bible School: Praying for VBS, inviting kids to come, serving in VBS, and following up on our guests. Kids will get saved. Sometimes even parents get saved through VBS. Florence Lee can tell you
