INTRODUCTION: The way you look at your ministry helps to determine how you will fulfill it. If you look at serving Christ as a burden instead of a privilege, you will be hindered and do only what is required of you. When Paul looked at ministry and the fact that he was called by God to...

Historically - the chief virtue taught by ancient educators was courage. It was one of the primary objectives of education. In our modern system you don't hear a lot about it, perhaps it's because we don't think we face it the way they did. They may face a lion on the streets... they may die because of the cold of winter... what about the plague... we don't live in that world anymore.

Between 1337 and 1453, England and France had the 100 Years' War. English kings moved on to French soil and captured major cities. Toward the end of the 100 years, a young and illiterate peasant girl, Joan of Arc, rallied the demoralized French troops and led them into battle and liberated the city of Orleans.

I was gripped by a story reported on the news about two weeks ago. It's the kind of story that will be embedded in my mind for a long time.

The song came from him watching a television show ''Review of the Year'' at the end of 1994. This was the year of Rwandan civil war tragedy which claimed 1 million people's lives. As he watched the show he found himself despairing about the state of the world and in prayer he began asking God if he was really in control and what kind of...

They once ran a contest in a newspaper, providing a prize to the person that gave the best answer to this question: ''If a fire broke out in the Louvre, and you could save only one painting, which one would it be?'' Well, Tristan Bernard, a French novelist, won the...

Last week, we looked at the idea that for new beginnings to take a firm hold, significant endings must occur. We use therein the account of Jesus and the woman in the synagogue who had been bound by the spirit of infirmity.

We've been taking the season of Lent to listen to the teachings of Jesus, and we're letting him identify weaknesses and blind spots and sin in our lives...so that we can make a 180-degree turn and repent of those things. And we've been saying every week that repentance is not a depressing thing; it's a freeing thing. It says in the...

The passage we are looking at is known as St. Paul' first missionary journey. This key church at Antioch is the first real beachhead in a pagan world. That church had a great start, great growth, great impact, and a great attitude, as chronicled in Acts 11:19-30. It was a marvelous, Christ-honoring, God-exalting, Spirit-filled, growing...
