Your personal trainer
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 3, 2020
Christ is faithful to do in you what you cannot do for yourself.
Philippians 1:6 says, “And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
Sometimes you may wonder if things are ever going to get any better, thinking, Am I ever going to overcome the obstacles? Let me encourage you: God uses the obstacles to help you encounter Christ and become more like Him.
God is continuously working individually, constructively, and creatively in your life. Have you realized that the Christian life is not a self-improvement plan?
You may have set goals that have gone by the wayside. Only God can work in you by His Spirit to make you holy and pure. There’s no way you can muster up enough strength for godly living by yourself.
Maybe you have experienced the help of a personal trainer to work alongside you to encourage, counsel, and promote your physical well-being. You may have decided that you couldn’t get the job done by yourself, so you hired someone to help. There’s an accountability and motivation always present when a personal trainer is involved.
If you’re going to grow spiritually and become stronger, you need a personal trainer of a different kind. God has given you the Holy Spirit to walk alongside you and commit Himself to your spiritual growth and development. He is your ultimate personal trainer.
The Christian life is not just hard without Him – it’s impossible. But you can trust that He will enable and energize you to do things His way in His strength instead of your own.
Your Support Changes Lives Like Annette’s

Q & A with Dr. Graham
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 1, 2020
Q How do you get back your first love for the Lord?
A If your relationship with the Lord has grown cold, know that it is not He who has changed, but you. His love for you is unfailing. Remember who He is and what He has done for you. Draw near to Him through prayer and spend time in His Word daily.
Q I’m really hurting over some relationship problems. What’s your advice?
A If you’re harboring bitterness or resentment in your heart, then turn first to Christ. Accept His forgiveness and choose to forgive and love those who’ve hurt you. God expects us to rely on His strength and love to pull us through when we face situations that are too much for us to handle.
Q Fear is creeping in about what will happen this year. What can I do?
A The Lord is your keeper. Despite the constant threat of danger and evil, there’s no need for you to stay up all night worrying. Yes, we have a very real enemy – but we also have a powerful Protector. Thank God for His watchful care over you. Pray daily for His protection upon your loved ones. You are not defenseless!
From Dr. Graham's desk
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 1, 2020
As you start this brand-new year, let me ask you this:
Are you going to live your way or God’s way?
This is something everyone needs to ask themselves. And now, just days into 2020, I urge you to thoughtfully consider your priorities this year.
Jesus doesn’t simply want a place in your life – He wants to be #1. If Jesus is not occupying that top spot, then someone or something else will take His place.
That’s why I hope you’ll request your copy of my 180-day devotional, Moments in the Word. It’s my gift to thank you for your donation this month, and I hope it encourages you to spend time with the Lord each day.
Thank you for your generous support to help broadcast the Gospel so that more people can come to know the Lord, and grow in their faith in Him.
I pray you’ll continue to put first things first in your life so that, “in everything He might be preeminent” (Colossians 1:18). May God bless you in everything this new year!

How you can be at the top of your game
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 3, 2019
My passion for baseball began when I was three years old. My dad placed a glove on one of my tiny hands, and a ball in the other, and the deal was sealed: I’d love the game all my days.
I’m sad to say that my days in the diamond are done, but I still love watching others play, especially those who are at the top of their game.
Of course, as in all sports, the players who excel are those who are best prepared. The ones who win the pennant are those who have persevered through setbacks, injuries, and losses – determining that no matter what, they are going to get that prize.
It’s the same in the Christian life. And if you want to be at the top of your game as a follower of Jesus, then you have to have the same mind-set as an elite athlete.
As the apostle Paul writes:
“One thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14)
Friend, you and I must develop spiritual muscle so that we’re actively and fully engaged in the race we’re running – and the battles we’re fighting!
I’d love to help you do that by showing you how to fix your eyes on the unseen realities of the spiritual realm – both in the here and now and in the life to come. My book Unseen will do just that, and it’s my way of thanking you for your gift this month. I pray it will help you rise to the top of your game...
Thank you for transforming so many lives!
By PowerPoint Ministries | October 2, 2019
Liz was in touch recently to share some very moving words – which reveal how deep an impact you’re making through your prayers and gifts. She says,
“I could not explain how much PowerPoint has done in my life. Because [you teach] the absolute truth… I’ve been healed spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally. My walk with God has become so real and strong [through] the timely, anointed, bold messages. My life is becoming more transformed every day through the messages you give to the world. Thank you.”
It’s only through friends like you that PowerPoint can continue sharing the transforming truths of God’s Word on the radio, on TV, and online – so thank you for your generosity!
Your life is more than you can see
By Dr. Jack Graham | September 3, 2019
How much of what you believe is based on what you can see?
I know I’m often convinced of something only after I see proof with my own eyes.
But there’s so much more to life than just what you can see. While many people focus only on what’s visible, there’s an invisible realm that’s just as real and just as active as the physical world you see!
We need to be very aware of what we can’t see, or else we risk being vulnerable to evil forces.
The Bible tells us that Satan desires to take the mind captive. He wants to control your thought life, to create doubt and confusion, and to lead you away from God.
You need to be aware of these forces, not ignore them just because you can’t see them. But awareness alone isn’t enough. You can’t overcome the power of the devil by education. You need something stronger!
You need to resist Satan by the power and authority of Jesus.
When you do this in Jesus’ name, giving Jesus His rightful place of authority and control of your mind and behaviors, the footsteps that you hear fleeing won’t be yours. James 4:7 tells us the devil himself “will flee” from the presence of a believer who submits to the Lord Jesus Christ! And you’ll see that “in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).
There’s so much more to life than what meets the eye. And when you open your mind to be aware of this, you realize just how much you need to rely on the Lord.
