I’ll tell you what I’ve learned about dealing with other religions, false doctrines, and so on: You can get so absorbed in fighting false beliefs and those who adhere to and propagate them that you forget your main job of preaching the Gospel, preaching the love of God in Jesus, lifting up Christ, and . . .  read more

(Written to a Christian worker who had recently undertaken a major long-term project for the Lord)

Your service for the Lord is a very great responsibility. At times it can be a heavy burden, a big job, with a lot of hard work, tension, confusion, excitement, concerns, and physical and mental stress—all of which tend to be pretty hard on you. Even the Lord Himself could not bear the strain and drain of a continual ministry to the multitudes. He frequently had to get away . . .  read more

I see a vision of a group of people under a dome in a big central room. They’re all looking up, like they expect something. There are other people rushing around busily out in the wings [in service to God], but the people under the central dome are just standing there quietly, looking up. They’re bathed in a beautiful golden glow from above, and they take deep breaths of the heavenly air that descends on them. It’s the Lord’s temple.

(Prayer:) Oh Lord, for a breath . . .  read more

This revelation came to me as our train wound its way through the hills of Italy. As my wife and I gazed out the window upon the ruins of castles, palaces and majestic villas of bygone eras, we were struck by how these great buildings, these glorious edifices, these grand creations of man, had all fallen into ruin and decay with the passage of time.

While I viewed the historic hillsides with their once proud structures, now in ruins, I could envision the glories of past centuries, . . .  read more

There was once a famous actor who was invited to speak at the church of his childhood, of which his old friend was now the pastor. For his contribution to the service he chose to recite Psalm 23, and did so with all the perfection of a professional orator with all the proper gesticulations and intonations and so on. When he was done, the people all applauded. “Great!” “Wonderful!” “Hurrah!”

Then the pastor arose and said, “If you will pardon me, I know you all . . .  read more

My wife, Maria, was feeling very tired and had such a headache earlier today that she had become discouraged about her health. As I prayed for her, I was reminded of the verse that tells us not to be weary and faint in our minds (Hebrews 12:3 KJV). I think the Lord wanted to inspire her to have a little more fight.

Our spiritual enemy, the Devil, really fights us, but . . .  read more

(Written to an individual who was faced with making a life-changing personal decision—a marriage proposal.)

It may surprise you to know that God likes you, His child, to make your own choices within His will. As long as you delight yourself in the Lord most of all and want to do His will, it is His delight to also give you the desires of your heart, because He’s the One who puts them there when . . .  read more
