We hope you enjoy reading this testimony from a Bibles for America staff member about realizing the effectiveness of the blood of Christ and its power in dealing with accusations from Satan, God’s enemy.

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...

How I Learned to Touch the Lord in a Simple Way

We hope you enjoy this BfA staff member’s testimony of learning how to touch the Lord. As a child, the Bible was a mysterious book to me because I didn’t have much exposure to it. I think we had a family Bible somewhere in the house, but I can’t remember ever picking it up and reading it. All I knew about the Bible was that it was a book religious people referred to, and like most Americans, I...

How I Enjoy Singing to the Lord

A BfA staff member shares his experience of singing to the Lord. In my everyday Christian life I really enjoy praying to the Lord, calling on His name, and speaking about Him to others. All these things give me a way to contact the Lord Jesus throughout my day and enjoy His presence. But one of my favorite ways to touch the Lord is by singing to Him with my spirit. The apostle Paul wrote about...

Praying God’s Word—An Unexpected Experience

A BfA staff member talks about his experience of praying with the Word of God. In Ephesians 6, the apostle Paul tells us to receive the Word of God “by means of all prayer” (vv. 17-18). There are certainly many ways to understand and practice this charge, and probably all are profitable. If the content of our prayer mirrors the content of God’s speaking to us in His Word, we’re probably on the...

How Knowing My Human Spirit Affected My Christian Life

We hope you enjoy this BfA staff member’s testimony about discovering her human spirit and how it affected her. The blog post “A Life-Changing Discovery: My Spirit” really touched me because what it talked about is exactly what I have experienced. Since I began to see in the Bible that I have a human spirit, and then to actually experience the Lord who lives there, my life has never been the same.

A Life-Changing Discovery: My Spirit

It’s interesting how we can read the Bible, even repeatedly, and miss something important. For example, we probably remember that the Bible mentions the Holy Spirit many times, but what about the human spirit? It may surprise you to know that the human spirit is mentioned scores of times in both the Old and New Testaments. To see the place our human spirit occupies in God’s purpose and in our...

Using Digital Tools to Spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ

A BfA staff member talks about his experience of sharing the gospel. I like to get to know new people, hear their stories, and take every opportunity to share my enjoyment of the Lord Jesus with them. Air travel often presents excellent opportunities for me to talk to people about Christ. Recently, I had such an opportunity. While flying over the Pacific, I felt the Lord’s urging to speak...

Where Is God’s Home?

A BfA staff member talks about her experience of God making home in her heart. I’m in the midst of preparing to make my first interstate move, and I don’t have somewhere to move into yet. An impending move-out deadline, coupled with trying to find a new place to live in a busy city, really got me thinking about the idea of home. What is it that makes a place a home?

Helping Someone Discover the Mystery of Their Human Life

A BfA staff member talks about her experience of sharing the gospel: As I settled into my seat and observed the plane rapidly filling up, I knew I was in for an uncomfortable flight. My seatmate hadn’t arrived, so I still had some hope that I’d be left in peace to endure the next three hours. Just when it seemed I might end up with three seats to stretch out on, a young man slid into the adjacent...
