I heard about an unusual event that occurred at the passion play in the Ozarks years ago. A local man, who was playing the part of Jesus, was carrying the cross through the streets to Gethsemane when someone in the crowd began to taunt and heckle him.

OPEN: A visiting Revivalist was impressed by an older couple in the church where he was holding Revival. The wife seemed to be half-turned toward her husband holding both his hands in hers.

You even held hands all through the service.'' The wife, with an exasperated look, retorted, ''That's not love, preacher. It's the only way I can keep him from cracking his knuckles.''...

We started a series last week called ''Built to Last: How to Build a Successful Marriage and a Successful Family.'' You know God is very interested in marriage and very interested in family. And when we talk about marriage and family, it's something that's on the heart of God. It's something that's on our hearts, too, because marriage and family and...

Proper Dating is the key to an exciting and enduring romance. NOW - I didn't say you are doomed to get a divorce if you don't date.

I'm in a series of messages around the theme, Sex According to God. I'm building on messages, one after the other.

One of those is the whole area of dating, engagement, and courtship.I read a statement I have reflected upon many times. It says, "The...

The cover is cracked and worn. This 2006 Day-Timer shows the wear and tear of lots of hard use. This one, on the other hand, is fresh and new. Only a page or…
