God Likes Your Company

An evangelist told me about a trip he made to India a few years ago. Shortly after J. John arrived, he heard about a saintly woman called Sister Theresa (not Mother Teresa) who had a powerful gift of the word of knowledge. J. John was able to meet her, and he said to her, "If you have a word for me, I would be so grateful."


He said she turned around and left. He feared he had offended her. But she came back to him an hour or so later with a list of 13 items (some of which almost bowled him over they were so accurate), ending with these words, which he will never forget: "God likes your company and asks that you give Him two hours of your time every day. That's all. Goodbye." Wow!

Desperate Prayer

The Word does not say that God rewards casual acquaintances. God rewards those who diligently seek Him.

Through a Glass Darkly

For centuries Christians have held very different eschatological views. Here are the primary perspectives.

A Child Shall Lead

In that day the wolf and the lamb will live together; the leopard will lie down with the baby goat. The calf and the yearling will be safe with the lion, and a little child will lead them all.

Isaiah 11:6

Leadership Rest

Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."

Matthew 11:28

The ServoIutionary

Dino Rizzo dreams of starting a revolution around the world—through serving. In Louisiana, his Healing Place Church is already a hub for no-strings-attached outreach, offering everything from hot meals for the homeless to disaster relief. But for this Baton Rouge pastor, the revolution’s just begun.

Why I Hate Labels

Hundreds of today’s rising churches in America embrace Spirit-filled living but avoid the ‘charismatic’ label. Greg Surratt explains why his is one of them.

Evangelism Is Back!

While American believers increasingly stress being missional, justice-minded and service-oriented, we’ve also neglected the basics of communicating the gospel message. But evangelist Rice Broocks believes we’re on the brink of a new movement that’s making the Great Commission more than just a suggestion.

Will You Forgive God?

It’s an unthinkable concept—forgiving the One who grants you life—yet countless believers feel betrayed by God. R.T. Kendall explains how you can walk in total forgiveness instead of harboring bitterness toward your Creator.

Evangelism Is ...

Why our call to share the gospel involves more than words and theology.

Spotting a Fake

A tree is identified by its fruit. Figs never grow on thornbushes, nor grapes on bramble bushes. A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.

Luke 6:44-45
Bible Old and New Testaments

A Prophetic Showdown Is Coming

Jennifer LeClaire says just like Elijah confronted the prophets of Baal, the time is coming when God’s New Testament mouthpieces will confront modern-day merchandisers.

Cart Pushing

I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.

John 13:15

{ Day 165 }

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. —Revelation 3:20-21, NKJV

{ Day 164 }

The Lord their God will save them on that day as the flock of his people. They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown. How attractive and beautiful they will be! —Zechariah 9:16-17
