David Platt explains that being a disciple of Jesus Christ means that we are also disciple-makers for Christ. He shows us the inherent calling that we have as believers to share the gospel around the world.
If a person claims to know Christ, but his life is not transformed, David Platt says that person doesn't truly know Christ. We get a deep and accurate view of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Human authority can solve temporal problems, but not eternal ones. Al Mohler takes us to the picture of King Jesus in Revelation 19, where we see Him in all power reigning forever.
The children of Israel willfully chose to switch from a theocracy to a monarchy. Al Mohler looks at our inherent desire to be ruled and how that points us to Jesus Christ, the true King.
The strength of the church rests on the faith of her members. Erwin Lutzer helps us strengthen our faith as we brace for the coming storms against the body of Christ.
Erwin Lutzer contends that cultural and moral storms are headed for the church in America, and some have already hit. We glean lessons from the church in Sardis to strengthen the levees of our faith.
James Ford helps us understand that it is only when we suffer with Christ and are conformed to His death that we can know Him and the power of His resurrection.
We may not enjoy it when it happens, but suffering for the believer is not an exercise in futility. James Ford helps us see the value of our pain when God uses it to bring us closer to Himself.
Even a cursory reading of the New Testament reveals the inherent connection between following Christ and suffering. Mark Jobe tells us that pain should be an expected outcome of knowing Christ.
Mark Jobe contends that unless we are on mission for Christ, we cannot know Christ. Just as Jesus obeyed His Father, so we who seek to follow Christ must walk in obedience, even in the face of suffering.
Knowing Christ means suffering with Christ; suffering with Christ means loss of position and privileges. Paul Nyquist helps us see that this loss is far outweighed by the joy of knowing Christ.
Paul Nyquist explains that like the Apostle Paul, many of us have accomplishments and positions in life that we could consider as gain, but as Paul teaches, those who seek to know Christ count this gain as loss.
Every aspect of our lives should be permeated by the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Bob Cook challenges us to make God the central figure in our lives. Whether it's on the job, in the home or on the road, we must make God and His word our primary focus.
For many of us, our relationship with Jesus Christ doesn't manifest itself in our workplace. Bob Cook helps us see the importance of doing our work as unto the Lord, and giving our best effort in any endeavor worthy of our attention.
Those who claim to follow Christ are walking, talking representations of Jesus to a watching world. Bob Cook gives us a sober reminder that the primary way non-believers learn about Christianity is by observing the actions of Christians.
