When did you last receive an uncomfortable message from God’s Word? The prophet Jeremiah heard and delivered some bad news to God’s people; he was familiar with sorrow and suffering. The April edition of Today in the Word will walk us through the book of Jeremiah, with insight into the sorrow and trials of today’s world. Today in the Word Senior Editor Jamie Janosz drops in to introduce us to this new study for the month of April and share how you can receive this devotional every month.
What is the gospel truth that Jesus spoke when declaring that He is the resurrection and the life? How does this truth impact our faith and life today?

This past weekend the Academy Awards took a turn as a display of anger was acted out on stage. Anger is a powerful emotion that is a part of the human experience, and Pastor Tim Green says that the decision of how we are going to respond needs to be made ahead of time. He also says preparation is the key and offers wisdom on how to take God’s truth and apply it in practical ways before we are in the heat of the moment and the danger of taking on anger that’s not our own.
