The Cost of Being a Missionary

Years ago, people referred to missionaries as those elect few who gave up everything they owned in this civilized world to go and work with the underprivileged in the uncivilized world. The cost was high; many of them died shortly after arriving. It may be shocking to learn, though, that missionary help isn't only for distant countries; the … Continue reading The Cost of Being a Missionary

What Good is the Bible?

Often when Christians try to convert non-believers, they quote verses of Scripture hoping to prove that God is real and alive today. But sadly, to someone who doesn't know God and who has never read the Bible and who attributes the sorrows and tribulations of this world to an uncaring Creator, the Bible has no value. So what good … Continue reading What Good is the Bible?

Abusing God’s Love for Personal Gain

Nothing excites the heart more than love. Nothing quiets a restless spirit more than love. And nothing gives us the confidence to endure trials and temptations more than love.
