Our need to experience rest

We all need to experience Sabbath rest—the kind of rest that involves ceasing from our own efforts and relying entirely on God (Heb. 4:9). Sabbath rest comes from a person—Jesus Christ. If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and are depending on Him alone for salvation, then you have rested from your [...]

 Open doors and closed doors

Sometimes the Lord speaks to us by opening and closing doors. I was in Nairobi, Kenya, several years ago when terrorists bombed the U.S. Embassy, killing nearly 1,000 people. That morning, the wife of the pastor who was sponsoring the leadership training at which I was teaching, planned to go to the embassy to help [...]

The lost art of waiting

It was Dietrich Bonhoeffer who said, “The blessedness of waiting is lost on those who cannot wait, and the fulfillment of promise is never theirs. They want quick answers to the deepest questions of life and miss the value of those times of anxious waiting, seeking with patient uncertainties until the answers come. They lose [...]

Let’s receive His gift of peace

So many are facing difficulties and loss during this Christmas season. As we celebrate the birth of our Lord this week, let’s receive His gift of peace. “The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Phil. 4:7).” And we are promised that “the God of peace [...]
