How to Shepherd Your Flock in a Politically Charged World
by Trevin Wax

Everything gets politicized these days. It's never been easier for churches to also get caught up in waves of political enthusiasm and social activism. So, what should a pastor do when their fellow church members see needs and want to meet them, see injustice and want to stop it, or see a good cause and want to support it? First, we should rejoice! When a church does a good job equipping people to think and live as Christians in a fallen world, the people become like riv... Read More

A Walk to Remember
by Robby Gallaty

Another example of a subtle allusion in the text of the Gospels is found in the events that follow the feeding of the multitudes. After feeding the 5,000 men (we can assume there were in upwards of 15,000 there with women and children present), Jesus "made His disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He dismissed the crowd" (Mark 6:45 HCSB). The ... Read More

Favorite Easter Hymns and Their Histories
by Contributing Author

The great theologian Charles Spurgeon once said, "... the singing of the pilgrims ... is the most delightful part of worship and that which comes nearest to the adoration of heaven." I couldn't agree more, especially at Easter when we, as Christians, come together to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

The Cross of Christ
by Dr. Franklin L. Kirksey

IntroductionDr. Erwin W. Lutzer, senior pastor of Moody Memorial Church in Chicago, Ill., shares in his book Why the Cross Can Do What Politics Can't, "Many pastors no longer preach about God's holiness and man's depravity, arguing that we must speak to the 'felt needs' of the day. Thus much contemporary preaching centers on relationships within the family, how to conquer depression, and how to have a better self-image. The focus is on how Christ can help ... Read More

by Al Mohler

Evangelical Christians have been especially attentive to worship in recent years, sparking a renaissance of thought and conversation on what worship really is and how it should be done. Even if this renewed interest has unfortunately resulted in what some have called the "worship wars" in some churches, it seems that what A. W. Tozer once called the "missing jewel" of evangelical worship is being recovered. Nevertheless, if most evangelicals would quickly agree... Read More
