The Joy of Sharing the Gospel

We hope you enjoy this BfA staff member’s testimony of sharing the gospel. I’ve heard it said that the greatest joy in a person’s life is the joy of receiving the Lord Jesus as his Savior, and the second greatest joy is leading another person to the same saving knowledge of Christ. From my own experience, I can testify to the truth of that statement and to the life-changing effect that leading...

What Does the Blood and Water That Came out of Jesus’ Pierced Side Mean?

John 19:32-34 includes details about Jesus’ crucifixion not recorded in the other three Gospels: “The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man and of the other man who had been crucified with Him.

New Video: Is Jesus in Your “Boat”?

Bibles for America has just released a new gospel video, “Is Jesus in Your ‘Boat’?” The video presents the gospel based on the biblical account of Jesus walking on the water to meet His disciples in the midst of a stormy sea in John 6:16-21.

Lost and Found

How did I get here? The young man took a long look at his life. He was penniless, homeless, filthy, and starving. You would never know he once had lived under the loving care of his wealthy father.

As he honestly faced himself...

No Longer Enemies

Have you ever thought, “Why do I have so much unrest? How can I have peace?” The inner peace you yearn for seems unattainable, no matter what you do. We’ve all felt this disquiet, regardless of our background, education, or social status. The reason we have this feeling is rooted in a fundamental problem—we’re not at peace with God. In such a state, it’s impossible to have true peace. Why aren’t...

The Third Part

Have you ever felt unsatisfied, let down, even inexplicably empty after you got what you thought would make you happy? You’re not alone. This perplexing feeling has been known to strike the most accomplished and wealthy people as well as the less accomplished and less wealthy.
