Have you ever wondered why Scripture gives us four different accounts of Jesus' life? Wouldn't one Gospel have been enough? Chuck Swindoll answers this question in "That You May Believe."
Thinking about my own life, I wonder if I’d be more effective if I was more intentional about what my influence will be. Would my relationships bring glory to God? Would I empower others to choose right over wrong? I hope so.
No really, what would you do for 10 million dollars? Although it’s easier for us to trust in money than in God much of the time it can bring no lasting satisfaction, only a desire for more.
Seeing the hand of God in your situation may seem impossible when the bottom drops out from your life, but viewing life from a vertical perspective gives you hope and helps you stand firm. No matter what the crisis.
In every season of human history, God has seen fit to raise up a man to take a powerful stand for Him. Evangelist Billy Graham has been God’s man in our generation.
If someone went over your life with a fine-tooth comb, what would he find? As Chuck says, the rewards of a life well-lived never end. They continue from generation to generation.
