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’d once lived comfortably in his wealthy father’s house. But he had left home, cut off his relationship with his father, squandered his inheritance on a life of sin, and ended up in a pitiful state. He finally came to his senses. As he honestly considered his...

No Longer Enemies

Have you ever wondered, “Why do I have so much unrest? How can I have peace?” No matter what you do, the inner peace you yearn for seems unattainable. Everyone has felt this way, regardless of background, education, or social status. The root of this unrest is that human beings are not at peace with God. Why is that? After all, God created us. He wanted to have a loving relationship with us. But...

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 even the most accomplished and wealthy people. In fact, King Solomon had it all—a kingdom, untold wealth, and profound wisdom—yet reflecting on his life, he concluded there was nothing new under the sun, and...

Only Jesus Can Heal You

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 was certain a particular person had touched Him, because at that moment, divine power had gone out of Him. A woman stepped out of...

It recounts the story of a man named Paul, who around the year 50 A.D. came to Athens, the leading city of ancient Greece renowned for its culture and philosophy. The city was...

Foolishness or the Power of God?

“For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” Written nearly two thousand years ago, these words in the Bible referred to certain Greeks who had rejected the word of Jesus Christ and His cross, dismissing it as foolishness. These Greeks prided themselves on their philosophy and ardently sought wisdom to understand...

Was Mankind Created to Be Redeemed?

In the garden of Eden, God lost the part of His creation that He considered very good—mankind. Yet, though man fell under the wiles of Satan, God took a tremendous and necessary step to regain what was rightfully His, created for His own purpose from the beginning. This step is the step of redemption. What is redemption? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, to redeem is “to get or win...

Freed from the Fear of Death

Most of us don’t like to think about death, let alone talk about it. It’s a frightening subject. But at one time or another we’ve all been touched by death, suffering the loss of a relative, friend, neighbor, or someone else in our lives. Though we try to prolong life, no one can escape death. When death’s final summons comes, everyone—rich or poor, strong or weak, well-known or unknown—must...
