Jesus Truly Cares and Fully Understands

Along life’s journey, none of us can avoid worries, hardships, or heartache. When we’re hurt, discouraged, or grieving, we yearn for someone to understand what we’re going through. We may tell our troubles to friends or family, but sometimes they can’t fully understand. And although we may get some relief by telling them about our situation, we still feel a deep need in our heart. At times like...

Thank You to Our Veterans

Every year, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, America pauses to honor our nation’s veterans. The date for Veterans Day is deliberate; it marks the armistice signed in 1918 for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I. It is a day to honor the veterans of all wars, but especially to honor those still living.

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.

What Can the Story of the Magi Teach Us About Knowing Jesus?

You’re probably familiar with the story in Matthew 2 about the magi who came to worship Jesus after He was born in Bethlehem. But have you ever thought this story might be applicable to our Christian life? Let’s look at Matthew 2:1-6 with the notes in the New Testament Recovery Version to discover how it’s relevant to us today.

8 Helpful Points for Breathing in God Through Prayer

We all know breathing is the most fundamental need for sustaining our physical life. But did you know that continually breathing in the life of God is essential for maintaining our spiritual life?

From the moment we’re saved, we need to continue to breathe spiritually so we can grow in the...

What Hebrews 12:2 Says About the Source of Faith

Have you ever felt you were lacking in faith, or found it hard to believe in the Lord at times? In previous posts, we discussed what faith is and where it comes from, and how we can be strengthened in our faith. Today, we’ll focus on Hebrews 12:2 and accompanying notes in the New Testament Recovery Version that show us Jesus is the source of faith, and how to apply this fact in our Christian life...

Come to the Lord and Find Rest for Your Soul

Many things can be a burden to us: financial difficulties, troublesome work environments, painful family situations, our health. Often, we may feel completely worn out—not just outwardly tired, but inwardly exhausted—from struggling to bear these burdens.

The Big Question: What’s the Meaning of Life?

As the school year is about to begin, we at Bibles for America have a heart that students on today’s college campuses would hear the gospel and receive the Lord, thus finding the real meaning and purpose of their human life. To that end, we’ve created this tract specifically to share with college students. If you would like to share this gospel tract with anyone you know who is seeking the true...

The Human Spirit: The Residence of the Holy Spirit

When we believed in Jesus Christ, a number of marvelous things happened to us. Among them, we were born again, and Christ came to live in us. We may be familiar with verses in the Bible telling us Christ lives in us. But where exactly does He live within us, and why is it important for us to know? Say you have a friend you correspond with by email, but you’ve never met each other in person. All...
