ISIS and others are murdering Christians all over the world. Like in ancient Rome, there is a war to destroy the faith of believers in Christ, and this war is coming to our shores. Let’s consider this and ask, “What would it take for us to deny our faith?”

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

How should believers live in a world on the edge of calamity? James told us how in his epistle: “Be patient, for the Lord is coming.” Let’s learn some final thoughts on getting ready for whatever comes.

To trust in riches is to trust in a vapor that passes away. James talks a great deal about economic justice for the poor, saying that, one day, our gold and silver will not buy anything. Here are some stark lessons for a future that may be just around the corner.

Money: we all need it. But one day the money we crave will be no more.  All that gives us security will vanish, and that’s the day of final judgment. Then, what we are on the inside will be all that matters.

No temptation comes to us that we cannot handle. The devil’s attacks will fail if we’re diligent to meditate and memorize God’s Word. We can follow the pattern of the Son of God, as He dealt with our common enemy.

A hungry and thirsty Jesus was offered all the kingdoms of the world if only He’d worship Satan. We too are sometimes tempted to dishonor God to meet legitimate needs. Here are some lessons we can take home from an encounter with the devil.

Satan seeks to tempt all of God’s children, to get them to veer off God’s path. The devil wants us to think that sin is appealing, and that its consequences are manageable. Let’s unravel his lies.

Jesus was led by God into the wilderness where the devil tempted Him to sin. Hungry and thirsty, He was very vulnerable, but He fought off Satan by using the Word of God. Let’s follow Jesus into the desert and be taught by our Lord’s example.

Having less can be a great blessing. It means reaching out to those around you because you have to. Family and community mean much more when tough times come. Let’s look at this idea from the life of an Old Testament woman.  
August 15, 2016
Life’s hard times can either make us bitter, or they can lead us to reach out to others. Naomi and daughter-in-law Ruth traveled to Bethlehem, where a man named Boaz ultimately cared for Ruth and married her. We can learn many lessons from a woman of great faith.
August 12, 2016
Through tears we learn to depend on God for every breath, every bite of food, and every dollar in our wallets. Let’s examine a story of famine and crisis, and how God met a woman’s needs.
