Why Do We Need to Be Born Again?

In the eyes of God, the most moral person has the same need as the most wicked: to be born again with His eternal, uncreated life. What matters to God is not our behavior, but whether or not we have His life. Today, God is calling many to be born anew.

The Deep Significance of the Birth of Jesus Christ

Have you ever stopped to think about the deeper meaning of the birth of Jesus Christ? Although many people, even unbelievers, have heard the story of Jesus’ birth, its real significance may be missed because of that familiarity with the “story” aspect. The birth of Jesus Christ—a momentous event The birth of Christ was not the ordinary birth of an ordinary man. It was the birth of the most unique...

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. But coming to Jesus, when they saw that He had already died, they did not break His legs; but one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood...

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. It points to our common human experience of troubles, anxieties, and fears, and our great need to invite Jesus into our life. We hope this video would...

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. In fact, King Solomon had it all—a kingdom, untold wealth, and profound wisdom—yet after pondering his life, he said...

Only Jesus Can Heal Us

As Jesus made His way through the throngs of people surrounding Him, He suddenly stopped and asked, “Who is the one who touched Me?” Although it seemed obvious, His disciples answered that the crowds were pressing upon Him. But Jesus insisted, “Someone touched Me.” He knew a particular someone had touched Him, because at that moment, divine power had gone out of Him. A woman stepped out of the...

3 Major Steps in God’s Plan of Salvation after the Fall of Man

We previously discussed how man was created by God for His own purpose but became fallen, sinful, and unable to live in a way that fulfills God’s plan. The consequences of the fall of mankind are tragic, and we see their effect in our own lives and everywhere we look today. But God can never be defeated!
