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.

There are laws at work in the spiritual universe—laws that can neither be debated, nor circumvented. We may claim freedom from the law as believers, thinking we can do as we please. But God has a word for those of us who feel this way, a word brought to us by the Apostle Paul.

In one sense, we have way too many options to fill our time. A thousand voices demand our attention via radio, TV, movies, and the internet. But developing godly character requires developing our inner lives. In this message we hear a challenge on holiness.
August 13, 2020
Taking a stand for what’s right means going against the prevailing tide. To do this, we need strength from God—a strength that comes from developing a life of prayer. The Apostle Paul modeled this for us in his writings to the church at Thessalonica.
August 12, 2020
It’s not always popular to be seen taking a stand. But when God comes in unusual power to a church, we often see courage and resolve that was not there before. In this message we learn how the ancient church in Thessalonica took their stand, and how we can follow their example as darkness settles over our land.

Servants continue to serve others even when those they serve don’t appreciate it. They know that God watches their service and is pleased. In this message we learn that a serving church is a church where God’s presence is felt very strongly.

Most people set their priorities in selfish ways. It’s unusual when people give others first place. But in ancient Thessalonica, a desire to serve others was evident. Paul commended this church for their service, and in this message, we’ll learn the lessons they learned so long ago.
August 7, 2020
The church in Thessalonica underwent persecution, but nonetheless exhibited the joy of the Lord, despite their trials. That’s what happens when God’s presence is very real, as it is during times of revival. In this message we look at what happens to a church when God shows up.
August 6, 2020
New life comes to a church when revival begins, and there's no doubt we could use a great awakening now. What are the indications that God is making His presence known in a special way? In this message we begin a series from one of Paul’s epistles that tells us what they are.

Loving God with all our hearts, and our neighbors as ourselves, fulfills the law and pleases our Creator. Obeying this commandment means obeying all ten of the commands God wrote on tablets of stone so long ago. They’re not suggestions, they’re commands. So do you love God?
August 4, 2020
Written by God on tablets of stone, the Ten Commandments defined proper behavior. Those who know and love God not only follow these ten laws, but on a higher plane, they follow an eleventh: to “Love one another, as I have loved you.” In this message we sum up our study of the Ten Commandments by learning how Jesus fulfills the Law in love.
