    Opening Doors

    Charlie Sifford is an important name in American sports. He became the first African-American playing member of the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) Tour, joining a sport that, until 1961, had a “whites only” clause in its by-laws. Enduring racial injustice and harassment, Sifford earned his place at the game’s highest level, won two tournaments, and in 2004 was the first African-American inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Charlie Sifford opened the doors of professional golf for players of all ethnicities.

    Opening doors is also a theme at the heart of the gospel mission. Jesus said, “Therefore go and make…

    Real People, Real God

    Several years ago I received a letter from an Our Daily Bread reader after I had written about a family tragedy. “When you told about your tragedy,” this person wrote, “I realized that the writers were real people with real problems.” How true that is! I look across the list of men and women who pen these articles, and I see cancer and wayward children and unfulfilled dreams and many other kinds of loss. We are indeed just regular, real people writing about a real God who understands our real problems.

    The apostle Paul stands out in the Real People Hall of…

    A thought-provoking conversation on evangelism

    This week we’ve been talking about how to share the gospel in a pluralistic culture. It’s the same challenge that the apostle Paul faced in his day.

    What we can learn from Paul about evangelism

    Are you a chameleon? That is to say, do you change your behavior depending on who you’re with? Is that always bad? Join us as we continue learning from Paul this week.

    Expressing God’s love to a lost world

    “For God so loved the world” is a phrase we’re used to hearing. Throughout the pages of the Bible, God speaks of His love and compassion for everyone. Don’t miss this important discussion.

    How Paul related to a pluralistic culture

    Our world is changing, and change is difficult. So what should our attitude be as we face all the changes in the culture around us? Join us as we start a new series in Acts 17, calling Christians to engage the world.

    An insightful summary of the greatest book ever written

    Remember writing book reports for school? The first question you always had to answer was, “What is this book about?” Find out what the Bible is all about.

    Hope for dark times is found in knowing our place in God’s redemption story!

    The Bible tells us Jesus came to rescue us from the oppressive powers of sin and death. So why do we often feel like we’re still held captive?

    Gain a BIG picture of God’s Word

    The romance in Ruth, the mystery in Revelation, the wonder in the Gospels; the Bible certainly contains many fascinating stories. Let’s take a step back and discover that the whole of Scripture is an epic, remarkable, and redemptive story!

    Learning together in Christ–Kevin’s Story

    Following Kevin’s search for truth, he made the decision to follow Christ wholeheartedly; a choice that changed his life forever! Be encouraged by how much impact a transformed life like Kevin’s—and yours—can have on those around you. We would like to thank Maranatha Bible & Missionary Bible Conference in Muskegon, Michigan, for partnering with us […]

    Living the gospel, so that others can see Christ

    Sweaty palms and a knot in the stomach. That’s the reaction many of us have when it comes to sharing our faith. Let’s take the fear and worry out of evangelism. We don’t need to shout the gospel from the street corner to be a powerful witness.

    Faithfully delivering the good news, and leaving the results up to God

    Sharing our faith doesn’t always go as planned. We’d like to see someone accept Jesus the moment we present the gospel. But that’s not always the case.

    What seems impossible to us is not impossible with God!

    Have you ever prayed that a loved one would come to know Jesus, only to see that person move farther and farther away from God? Be encouraged to keep praying, and sharing the Savior.

    One of the most important ways God reveals Himself to us, and to others

    Our days are often crammed with tasks, errands, and the routine responsibilities that have to get done. Let’s leave a little room in our lives to experience wonder!

    How embracing doubt can actually lead people to embrace the Savior!

    When telling others about Christ, we often try to remove all uncertainty from their minds. We believe that doubt prevents people from coming to faith. Our series on evangelism continues.
