  • Our God: The Patron Of Lost Causes

    Contributed by Karl Eckhoff on Jun 6, 2002
    based on 39 ratings

    It’s easy to identify others as "lost causes". It’s not nearly so easy for us to see ourselves this way. Nevertheless that’s exactly where we need to be, where we’ll want to be; for empty of all our righteousness we cling to Christ and find life.

  • All Is Now Yours: Giving What We Do Not Have

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Oct 8, 2001
    based on 32 ratings

    In uncertain times, it remains true that giving away what we cannot possess anyway is the path to fulfillment; it must, however, be a gift that refreshes the fainting.

    It seems that we do not have what we think we have. Sometimes what seems to be ours is not ours at all. Buildings as sturdy as the Pentagon and as imposing as the World Trade Center can be destroyed in a moment of awful terror. Lives promising and beautiful are snuffed out, and there is little more

  • Matthew's Puzzling Conversion

    Contributed by William Mouser on Jun 6, 2005
    based on 10 ratings

    Matthew’s puzzling and sudden following of Jesus is not so puzzling if we attend to Matthew’s profession, his Levitial upbringing, and his recognition of Jesus as the one about whom Hosea prophesied.

  • Do We Smell Like Sinners?

    Contributed by Ricky Cox on Aug 5, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    Do we spend all of our time inside the church walls, or do we spend so much time out in the community serving others that we start to smell less like sheep and a little more like sinners?
