It’s easy for us, living in the “civilized” 21st-century, to think that the persecution of Christians was merely a reality in ancient times. It was—but it’s as much a reality today as it was yesterday.
Pastor Chuck Swindoll approaches the vital matter of death with wisdom from 2 Corinthians 4:14–18 and 5:1–8. While the end of life is certain, your eternal destination can be certain too!
Are you looking for something worthwhile to invest in? When you make sacrifices for others and go the second mile you’re investing in people and eternity.
Contentment comes through choices we make. The Apostle Paul said he had learned how to be content (Philippians 4:11–13). Following Paul’s teaching and example can help us learn how to be content.
For most of my life God has been teaching me to release my grip on everything I hold tightly. It’s a process that began when I was 13.
The daily nourishment of grace to our souls overshadows loss. Glory illuminates darkness. All of this is good theology but it tends to stay in our heads. What practical difference does it make when I confront living changes?
It sounds like a cliché, but the best is yet to come. The far side of 50 is a good place to be. Despite the losses, aging is not about losing.
In our image-conscious society, there is an enormous emphasis placed on appearing to be someone you’re not. Playing such a role is not just inauthentic; it also encourages us to keep others at a distance.
Filled with practical tips from his more than 50 years of ministry, Chuck Swindoll helps us tap into the special mercy we need from God to complete the ministry to which He‘s called us.
In 2 Corinthians 4:1–7, Paul shows that each human heart harbours prideful attitudes and selfish habits that lead us to hide shameful things, do deceitful things, and corrupt sacred things. Thankfully, God offers His people special empowerment. Receive this encouragement from Pastor Chuck Swindoll as you pursue the priceless treasure of an authentic ministry.
