“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). Faith can even come from hearing your word, your testimony, your witness, your letter containing the Words of God to a friend, relative, or interested party.

There once was a poor young man who wanted to impress upon a rich lady how hungry he was, hoping to get a handout in the way of a good meal. So he got down on his hands and knees on her front lawn and pretended to eat the grass. When the lady saw him from a window, she rushed to the front door. “Oh, my dear poor boy!” she exclaimed. “Why don’t you go around to the backyard? The grass is much longer there!” The generosity of some people!

We all need a good sense of[...] read more

The most raging religious controversy the world has ever known has been between the do-it-yourself religions and the God-alone-can-save-you kind. Man has always been trying to save himself, to work his way to Heaven, with just a little help from God thrown in. That way he can give himself most of the credit and go his own way.

The first murder was committed by a religionist of the do-it-yourself kind, Cain (the oldest son of the first couple, Adam and Eve). Cain killed his[...] read more

As Christians, we believe in love!—Love for God and others, for “God is love” (1 John 4:8). That’s our religion—love!

Love is everything, for without love there is nothing: no friends, no caring families, no loving fathers or mothers or children or happiness or Heaven. There could be none of these without love! And none of these could exist without God, for God is love.

Love is the primary solution to all of man’s problems of today, as well as those of the past—true[...] read more
