Jesus after the Lost

John 4:5-42

I think perhaps the hardest thing that any pastor could ask a congregation to do is to become personal witnesses and to share their faith with somebody who is not a believer. If you ask people, “Why don’t you witness? Why don’t you share your faith with others?” you would get a lot of different answers...

A Life Worth Living

John 10:10

Some time ago a man just dropped in my office who obviously was despairing of life. It did not take long for me to know that he had virtually come to the end of his rope. He had no meaning, no purpose in existence. I had just been teaching to our church the Roman road of salvation and I decided that I would use that plan of s...

Because He Lives Sermon

John 14:12-19

A news article began, “America is thirsty for some good news.” It was referring to inflation, a coal strike, and trouble in the Middle East. But the good news that America really needs is the good news announced by the angel that day when the friends of Jesus came to the tomb where he was buried. The angel said, &...

The Tragedy of What Might Have Been

John 18:1-5

John Greenleaf Whittier once wrote, “For all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.’” Those words are the sad commentary on many a life. People start with such great promise and have such golden opportunities. But they make the wrong choices and miss their opportunities...

Commissioned to Witness

John 20:21-23

Part of the act of baptism in the church of India is for the candidate to place his hand on his head and say, “Woe is me if I preach not the Gospel.” We might ought to initiate that practice in our churches, because many of us have forgotten that witnessing is our commission also.

Today's Devotional

Never Stop Running

A friend told me birthdays are good for you. People who have lots of them usually live a long time. In 2001 I had bypass surgery. I had seven of those suckers – that’s right, seven. That’s all you can have. I wanted to have eight so I could make the Guinness Book of World Records, but my doctor said seven is the maximum.

After the surgery the doctor said, “I think I bought you ten more years.” When nine years was up, I tried to renegotiate. It reminds me of a man who went to the doctor and the doctor gave him six months to live. He didn’t pay his bill, so the doctor gave him another six months. If you know who that doctor is, go to see him.

The truth is, none of us knows how much time is left. No matter your age or stage in life, stay at it and keep “looking to Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith.”
