Why You Should Hurt, When Your Brother Hurts

A young man described by Luke, the physician, as "a man full of God's grace and power" did great wonders and miracles among the residents of Jerusalem shortly after Christ's ascension to heaven. But the religious leaders of the day didn't like it. He was taken before the Sanhedrin. When the high priest asked him if these charges were true, Stephen proceeded to preach to the crowd, but his sermon didn't sit well with them, either. "When they heard this," says Luke, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him." Eventually, they "dragged him out of the city and began to stone him."

Why You Should Hurt, When Your Brother Hurts

God’s Sure Plan For You

God has a plan, and chance has no part in that plan. Take, for example, planet Earth‑‑this elliptical sphere spinning on its axis at the rate of 1,000 miles per hour, hurtling through space at the rate of 27,000 miles per hour. Planet Earth, of course, is but one of eight major planets which revolve around the sun, all of which are part of our solar system, which moves through space at the speed of 720,000 kilometers per hour in an orbit so large that it takes 2 million centuries to complete.

God’s Sure Plan For You

When Culture Conflicts With Faith

When you don't in a world that generally does, you stand out like a sore thumb! In other words, when almost everybody cheats, and you don't, you are penalized. When almost everybody lies to get ahead, and you feel compelled to tell the truth, you are at a distinct disadvantage. When almost everybody uses company time for their own personal business or pleasure and you don't, you are thought strange or even stupid.

How We Got To Moral Chaos

A man and woman wanted to sneak off for a romantic lunch together, away from the eyes of their colleagues at the office they both worked in. They picked up a pizza and headed for a nearby park. When they opened the pizza box, however, they found, not only the pizza, but an envelope full of cash, which the restaurant manager had hidden in the box the day before, for safekeeping. Fearing that they might be accused of theft, they immediately returned the money. The owner of the restaurant, so impressed at their honesty, said, "Let me call the local TV news and have them do a story. I can’t believe that you actually returned this cash! The couple, though, was horror‑stricken. "Oh, please don't do that," they pleaded, "we're married to other people!"

Your Prayers Can Start Revival

Your Prayers Can Start Revival

What Does Revival Mean?

Long ago the psalmist prayed, "Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?" (Psalm 85:6). A generation ago, folks sang the rousing words of a song written by John Husband: "Revive us again; fill each heart with thy love; May each soul be rekindled with fire from above. Hallelujah! Thine the glory, Hallelujah! Amen; Hallelujah! Thine the glory, revive us again."

How Do I Reconnect With God?

How does a person restore a connection with God? That was the question posed by a friend of Guidelines. She struggled in even writing the letter, saying that four years ago she had written asking the same question but never mailed the letter. Now a little girl, three years of age, is asking questions about God, and all of this triggers feelings of remorse and regret.

How Do I Reconnect With God?

The Secret To Daily Renewal

Do you live in a part of the world where the trees lose their leaves in the fall? Strangely, they become their most brilliant, with leaves of red, orange, gold, and brown right before the cold freeze of winter arrives, stripping the leaves and leaving barren branches. Yet when spring follows winter, there is hope for renewal, and as the warmth of a spring sun gradually drives back the frost of winter, there is the expectation that new life is here, that there is hope.
