A lot of Christians refer to themselves as “born again believers.” But what does it really mean to be “born again?” Chuck Swindoll explains why our second birth is essential for spiritual life.
Often, in an attempt to seem humble, we’ll cut ourselves down or downplay our own abilities. But Chuck Swindoll reveals that self-degradation is not the same as biblical humility.
The ancient Hebrews were like a child who loved to sing a silly song over and over…“same song, a little bit louder, and little bit worse.” And God wasn't amused.
Jesus confronted the very thing I’m most afraid of: being rejected for being your authentic self. In the face of unbelief, Jesus stood firm. He was confident in His person and certain of what was true.
Because we fallen people are living in a fallen world, everything, even so-called truth has been corrupted. That means the only source for absolute truth is revealed truth which we have in the Bible.
Continuing his series on integrity in adversity, Pastor Chuck Swindoll will highlight John the Baptizer, who was a remarkable model of humility as the one sent from God to serve as the forerunner of Jesus.
From a pluralist’s standpoint, the exclusivity of Jesus as the only way of salvation is intolerant. It assumes the existence of absolute truth, that it may be known, and it delegitimizes all competing religious claims.
Nothing on this earth is anything even like heaven. Nothing. We could spend the next decade only thinking about heaven and still come up so short we’d have wasted our time. Because when you move from the realm of the seen to the unseen it becomes incomprehensible.
God is gracious to include us in His plan to reach the lost. He uses people like us to tell others about his unfathomable mercy and grace.
This is the Good News—“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” (John 3:16 NIV). The price for our sins is paid in full. It’s a free gift for you, for me, for everyone who believes.
