The Simple Secret of an Unsinkable Life

Our need is not to think of ways to get away from the storms of life but to learn the secret of going through them. This brings us to the last words Jesus spoke in His immortal Sermon on the Mount. As He drew His remarks to a close, He used a vivid word picture of two houses, built on opposite foundations. From this familiar illustration, we can learn the secret of an unsinkable life.

Q & A: What are the keys to receiving what I pray for?

The Word of God instructs us to pray for something according to God’s will until we get it. Matthew 7:7 says “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (NASB). We are exhorted to practice persistent repetition of our requests, not a formulaic repetition of words, which Jesus condemned (Matthew 6:7–8).

If You’re Serious About Simple Faith, Stop This!

What’s the best thing to wear while listening to the Sermon on the Mount? A pair of steel-toed boots! Could any body of truth be more convicting than Matthew 5, 6, and 7? Without concern for how folks would react or what opinions they would form, our Lord declared His penetrating message for all to hear.
