But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of One Minute After You Die, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says.

Meditation on the word of God provides a still point in a turning world. In this message we receive teaching from the book of Joshua on how meditation on the word of God can give us inner resources to face whatever comes our way. How still is your heart as you run your race?

The winning athlete is invariably the one who understands discipline. Just as it takes discipline to win at the track, we can be sure it takes discipline to win in the race of life. In this message we look at the first of five disciplines of the Christian life.

We can be sure that our faith will always lead to ultimate victory, even if we never see the rewards of that faith while still in this life. That was true for many of the heroes of faith in the Bible. In this message we see that Abraham was one of those heroes.

The heroes of faith in Hebrews chapter eleven include ordinary people. They believed God despite not seeing immediate responses to their prayers. We, too, can exhibit their kind of faith. We can trust God, no matter what comes.
November 7, 2017
Some wonder what good it is to have faith in God when He never seems to answer their prayers. Many lose what faith they have and give up on God altogether. In this message we look at the heroes of faith who believed God no matter what.
November 6, 2017
The rewards of our faith are not primarily found in this life. In the life to come, God bestows rewards for faithfulness. Like the heroes of faith in Hebrews eleven, we need to set our sights on heaven, realizing that then, this life’s pain will be worth it all.
