“It should come as no huge surprise that the secular world is confused and off-base about the identity and calling of women. But what I find distressing is the extent to which (this) has taken hold even within the evangelical world. We see the fruit of that revolution as prominent Christian speakers, authors, and leaders promote an agenda, whether subtly or overtly, that encourages women to define and discover their worth in the workplace, in society, or at church, while minimizing (or even

Daily Devotional: Forgive Them

by Ken Barnes  

 They went on stoning Stephen as he called on the Lord and said, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” Then falling on his knees, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” Having said this, he fell asleep.”  (Acts 7:59-60 NASB)

“When David’s young men came, they spoke to Nabal in accordance with all these words in David’s name; then they waited. But Nabal answered David’s s

I’m tired of the rain. To be more specific, I’m tired of walking through the mud in our front yard. The same rain has led to flash flood watches and warnings in our area. Yet, showers are a blessing.

“I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing. Then the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase. They shall be safe in their la

Geez, all through his ministry, people were trying to trap Jesus, the Sadducees and the Pharisees and Judas trapped him in the garden, and the Roman official stuff They had him trapped on the cross. But Jesus was always the one even when they thought they had him. They never really had him because he was always in control.

Almost every man believes in one thing or personality or the other. No matter what, you have faith in someone or something. You can convince that you don't believe in anything or anyone and I will agree with you if you do not have a handset (mobile phone) or you do not ride any vehicle.

Whatever might be the brand of the mobile phone or vehicle that you ride, you believe in the product that it will work for you. You have faith in it. Do you know that it is possible for
