Pray That Truth Wins This Election

Pray That Truth Wins This Election

On both sides of the political spectrum, there's an overwhelming sentiment that what's happening in our elections isn't fair. As we approach the 2022 election, my most consistent prayer is that, when the election is complete, we will have the sense that it was conducted fairly and openly. If we have that, I believe we have a foundation to move forward. Otherwise, we are in a very difficult place.

The Way Christians Engage in Politics Is Crucial to Our Witness

The Way Christians Engage in Politics Is Crucial to Our Witness

The way Christians engage in politics is crucial to our witness and the eternal destinies of those we influence. Max Lucado was right: “Those who don’t believe in Jesus note what we who believe in Jesus do. They make decisions about Christ by watching us. When we’re kind, they assume Christ is kind. When we’re gracious, they assume Christ is gracious. But when we’re dishonest, what assumption will an observer make about our Master?

The More Fervently You Serve the Lord, the Greater a Threat You Are to His Enemy

The More Fervently You Serve the Lord, the Greater a Threat You Are to His Enemy

Temptation is a great discourager of God’s people as well. Satan loves to tempt us and then to tempt us to feel guilty that we are being tempted. The opposite is actually the case: the more fervently you serve the Lord, the greater a threat you are to his enemy. If he would tempt Jesus in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-10), he will certainly tempt his followers.

Truth Changes Everything

Truth Changes Everything

What kind of world would unfold if smart, determined people lived as if Jesus really was the source of truth? That question shapes a new book by my friend Dr. Jeff Myers, president of Summit Ministries. Truth Changes Everything: How People of Faith Can Transform the World in Times of Crisis is a book badly needed right now.

The World Will Be Drawn to Christ to the Degree That Christians Live Like Him

The World Will Be Drawn to Christ to the Degree That Christians Live Like Him

If Jesus is our Lord, we are included in the “saints.” The question is: Will we be who we are? Will we live in ways that show the world the transforming, sanctifying difference Jesus has made in our lives? I am convinced of this assertion: The world will be drawn to Christ to the degree that Christians live like him. If churches are divided against each other, why would lost people want to join us? If Christians are angry, rancorous, and judgmental, why would non-Christians want what we have?
