Stories of God at Work

from Australia

A broken dream isn’t the greatest tragedy, but a life forever defined by it is. Creating a healthy new normal after the death of a dream is essential. In this condensed version of their documentary, Sheridan and Merryn Voysey understand facing a new normal. In A Journey Through Broken Dreams, they candidly share their struggle with infertility, the decade of medical procedures they endured to try to conceive a child, and the decision to redesign their lives with career changes and a major move to another continent. Their life didn’t go as planned, but ultimately they found peace in their…

Our Misgivings About Jesus
My Utmost For His Highest

Have you ever said to yourself, “I am impressed with the wonderful truths of God’s Word, but He can’t really expect me to live up to that and work all those details into my life!” When it comes to confronting Jesus Christ on the basis of His qualities and abilities, our attitudes reflect religious superiority. We think His ideals are lofty and they impress us, but we believe He is not in touch with reality— that what He says cannot actually be done. Each of us thinks this about Jesus in one area of our life or another. These doubts or misgivings about Jesus begin as we consider questions that divert our focus away from God. While we talk of our dealings with Him, others ask us, “Where are you going to get enough money to live? How will you live and who will take care of you?”

Birth Religion
Our Daily Journey

It’s popular today to dismiss all religions as merely an accident of birth. If a person is born in Pakistan, the odds are that she will be a Muslim. India produces Hindus, Thailand makes Buddhists, Brazilians tend to be Catholics, and so on. Have you wondered if the only reason you believe in Jesus is due to the influence of your parents or others? Is becoming a believer simply about being born in the right family?

Changed Perspective
Our Daily Bread

As an early riser, my wife enjoys the quiet moments before the house wakes up and uses it to read the Bible and pray. Recently she settled into her favorite chair, only to be confronted by a rather messy couch left there by “someone” watching a football game the night before. The mess distracted her at first, and her frustration with me interrupted the warmth of the moment.

Welcome Sounds
Sports Spectrum

On Monday, we discussed the unhappy sounds of conflict that marked the start of the NASCAR season in Daytona. Today, however, we want to consider some much happier sounds—the sounds of Major League Baseball spring training. The pop of mitts and the crack of bats do more than just inform us that America’s pastime is…

Sounds Of Conflict
Sports Spectrum

In spite of the frigid temperatures that stretched all the way into Florida, the NASCAR season began this past week—and it was marked by lots of sounds. Of course, there was the sound of the 900+ horsepower engines roaring to life. There was also the sound of drivers and crew chiefs describing their off-season activities…

Our Story Isn't About Us.

It all started in 1938 with a small radio program called Detroit Bible Class. With his gravelly voice, Dr. M. R. DeHaan quickly captured the attention of listeners in the Detroit area, and eventually the nation. Since then, our audience has grown to millions of people around the world who use our Bible-based resources.

There’s often confusion on what the fruit of the Spirit is and is not. It’s not a list of instructions of how we should live; rather the fruit are qualities we exhibit when we are empowered by the Holy Spirit. We are set free to live a new life in Christ, no longer indulging in selfish desires but enabled to serve…
