Mercy's On Its Way!

Don StephensI felt my heart drop when I heard about the earthquake and all the devastation in Haiti.  As the days went by, I was blown away by the death counts, and prayed that God would first and foremost be a place of hope for these people.  I am thankful for those who sacrificially drop everything going on in their lives to help those in need.  Mercy Ships®, one of the first responders, sent doctors, nurses and other experienced medical experts to provide emergency surgery in this crisis.  With more than 1,000 people who have connected with Mercy Ships®, they ...

What is the Church?

Max LucadoCommunity is a hot topic in our culture today. What is it? How do you get it? Christians have some great answers for these questions! Frankly, the best place to find community should be in Church.

Be sure to visit the website where you can watch the Briscoes share from their hearts in their ...

iPhoneWith the coming of the new iPad-Apple has essentially made the iPhone, as one blogger put it-the "older brother."

Of all people at Ambassador, I'm the least likely to be talking about this new phenom in technology.  But I find myself like a kid waiting for my birthday--which, by the way, isn't that far off either!

The iPhone has literally changed my technical life--and to a great extent, my personal life.  How I connect with my friends; how I manage emails, and Facebook.  Instead of swapping recipes (which I've never done!)--it's "what's your favorite ...

Kay Arthur - Calling All Jeremiahs

If ever we needed 'Jeremiahs' it is today.  God calls a man who feels totally inadequate for the job.  God calls him to stand, to be his valiant spokesman ... to go forth and proclaim the Word of God to the people of God that they might repent ... return to God.

A New Challenge From Revive Our Hearts

Nancy Leigh DeMoss presents a new challenge for listeners seeking to grow deeper in their faith this year.  She is encouraging her audience to develop the habit of Scripture memorization.

Listeners responded overwhelmingly to the recent programs on "The Joy of Memorizing Scripture" - here is what some shared . . . 

What inspiration these programs are. I read through my Bible each year, lead a Bible study, but have not developed the habit of memorization of God's Word.  This habit is going to begin today. Thank you for this well timed set of programs.

I have been praying for direction concerning Scripture ...
