“The sun will be turned to darkness . . . before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes” (Joel 2:31). Just in case today is “the day” . . . Are you ready?
“The more you read the news, the more you should read the Bible. The second interprets the first, without the second it leads to despair.” Charlie Dates
“If God is your partner, make your plans big!” D.L. Moody
When Paul gave a benediction, he often said something like “May the Lord himself do such-and-such.” Until recently I had never thought about that. When trouble comes, we don’t need more words; we need the Lord himself. Thank God, we don’t have to walk through the valley alone. The Lord himself walks with us.
“There are no great preachers. There is only a great Christ.” Haddon Robinson
“To pretend to preach the truth without offending carnal man, is to pretend to be able to do what Jesus Christ could not do.” Thomas Watson
You never know where you’ll discover spiritual truth. For me it happened when I spent a few hot hours power washing the deck in our backyard. When we bought our home in Dallas four years ago, it came with an attached deck and a hot tub that was installed in 2001. We used the hot […]
Last week I got to spend some time with my friend H.B. Charles, Jr., pastor of the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL. In my judgment he’s one of the greatest preachers in America. This week he was elected president of the Southern Baptist Pastors Conference. During our time together, we recorded a podcast about preaching. I […]
“You cannot afford to be too busy to pray.” Billy Graham
Did you wake up worried? God is large and in charge. He can handle the details that scare you to death.

“Never pass up an opportunity to keep your mouth shut.” Elisabeth Elliot
“Don’t let the world squeeze you into its mold” (Romans 12:2 Phillips) Living for Christ means going against the flow. We’ve got to swim upstream.
“What have I to dread, what have I to fear, Leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, Leaning on the everlasting arms.”
Pray for a church filled with messy people, which means pray for a church filled with people because we’re all messed up but Jesus is a wonderful Savior.
We don’t have to choose between grace and truth. Since Jesus was full of grace and truth (John 1:14), and if he is in us and we are in him, then we should be full of grace and truth too.
Miracles happen when we pray. Never doubt that. If God’s people pray, he will heal our land. Do it, O Lord!
Day 17 Peter's Feet Posted by Ray Pritchard on Friday, March 17, 2017 Here’s the video devotional for Day 17 of Faces Around the Cross. Our journey through life is much dirtier than we think. We are great sinners who need a great Savior. We have one in Jesus Christ, who stooped so low that he […]
Simple obedience matters more than passing popularity.
“Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise, Thou mine Inheritance, now and always: Thou and Thou only, first in my heart, High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.” From the hymn “Be Thou My Vision.”
On Friday I spent an hour with Chris Fabry on Moody Radio talking about the divisions in the evangelical church over the recent election. How do you get along with people who didn’t vote the way you did? That’s a big question. Here are a few steps we can all take to build unity even […]
