2. Inspiration for Today
3. Featured: Mary and Jesus: The Most Privileged Among Women
There are some thing you just don't want to go through alone. We
don't like to go through trouble alone. If you get sick with nobody
to look after you, you'll probably feel more miserable. If you lose
your job, or your spouse or your child, you need somebody to help
you make it through. Mary teaches us that no matter what problems
you face, the Lord is with you. The angel says "Do not be afraid."
(Luke 1:30) But we wouldn't blame Mary if she were afraid. ...
4. The Whole Bible in One Message
Suppose you had 30 minutes. Could you tell the story of the Bible in
a half-hour? Most of us would have a hard time doing that. Dr.
Pritchard does this amazingly. The whole story of redemption of
mankind... If we imagine the Bible as a great sanctuary and every
book in the Bible as a seat in the sanctuary, then we can say
wherever you go in the Bible, you've got a great view because you
can see Jesus everywhere. ...
5. Jesus Is The Future
Approximately 300 passages in Scripture allude to Christ's second
coming-a return that will be swift, righteous, and unexpected for
many. Jesus gave His word that He would be back, and through that
promise, we can find tangible hope and clear direction for our lives
6. If You Seek Him, Jesus Will Find You
The first person Jesus revealed Himself to as "the Christ" was the
Samaritan woman (John 4). And the first person Jesus revealed
Himself to after His death was Mary Magdalene. If you, male or
female, are seeking Jesus, He will reveal Himself to you. He shows
no partiality or favoritism. We are all given the same Holy Spirit,
and one day, we each will behold our Lord face to face. ...
7. Finish the Race With God at Your Side
Life is not a race we are going to win. At some point, whether
because of this fallen world or our own sin nature, all of us will
stumble and fall. Many people believe that these times of tragedy
prove God either does not exist, or simply does not care what
happens to us, but they are wrong. ...
8. Hidden Hardships Behind Closed Doors
Long before Susanna had an inkling of how difficult her married life
would be, she made the Lord a promise. When she was young, Susanna
committed that for every hour she spent in entertainment, she would
give the same amount of time to Him in prayer and in the Word. ...
9. Prayer/Hymn - Iesu, Dulcis Memoria - Jesus, the very thought of
Iesu, Dulcis Memoria is a celebrated 12th century hymn attributed to
St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), Doctor Mellifluus. The entire
hymn has some 42 to 53 stanzas depending upon the manuscript. ...
