The Way Back

Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land, who do his just commands; seek righteousness; seek humility. - Zephaniah 2:3

The newest book by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, a daily devotional called, The Quiet Place, is now available.  I was personally struck by this excerpt from her book and wanted to share it with you . . .

"God wants to reveal His presence and His glory to His people today.  He wants to fill our hearts, homes, churches, and ministries with His love and His Spirit.  He wants to pour out His grace on the dry, thirsty ground of our lives.  He ...

Dream Like Disney

Dream Like DisneyThis week 600 Christian radio broadcasters are gathering in Orlando for Christian Music Broadcasting's Momentum Conference.  Are you there?  HCJB Global's Wayne Pederson is, and he just recorded a short reflection on his experience thus far.  Specifically, what it's like to be in Disney's world.  Yes, the place is called Disneyworld -- one word.  But Wayne is referring to the world in which its creator, Walt Disney, imagined -- and then worked it into being!

Eternal Labor

Did you know that Labor Day was actually first established as a national holiday in 1882? Two years later, the first Monday in September was selected as the official "working man's holiday."

Over a hundred years ago, working conditions were far different than today. For most Americans and their 8-hour work days in safe environments complete with benefits...it might be hard to remember why some of our forefathers fought so ...

The Personal Touch

MaxFor those of us who exist in a world that is relying more and more upon social media (so, all of us) you know that we just can't replace the value of a face-to-face interaction.

A handwritten card you receive in the mail wishing you a "Happy Birthday" carries a little bit more significance than the post on your Facebook wall with the same message.

A text message saying "I'm sorry" can't convey all of the emotion and feeling a conversation over a cup of coffee can hold.

In this increasingly digital world I think it is ...

What is Your Spiritual Attitude?

 
"Spiritual attitudes are the internal life of the church and those attitudes have to do with motives and conviction, building those into people." -- John MacArthur

 

When friends and family look at your life, what might they conclude about what it means to be a Christian?  What character qualities reveal you've been transformed? And how can you keep on cultivating those traits throughout your life?

This month on "Grace to You®" John MacArthur looks at ten spiritual attitudes that every believer should possess ... including humility, joy, faith, compassion, contentment, love.  These pillars of Christian character are vital in creating the ...
