How to overcome the fear of surrender
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 27, 2019
As a pastor, people will often come to me when they’re facing the fires of life. I’m talking about those who are sick, people with diseases, men and women with heartaches and family burdens. But do you know one thing I’ve noticed? There’s a glorious difference in how a faithful Christian suffers.
If God is good, then why suffering?
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 26, 2019
There are times in life when we just have a hard time understanding “why.” I think about a friend I have who lost a child in a tragic accident. I think about those who are sick and hungry around the world with little hope for relief. Yet others whom we see as less innocent seem to prosper.
How to give young people a purpose in life
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 25, 2019
I read not long ago that only 49 percent of college freshmen in America have a thought-out philosophy of life. That’s nearly half of the young people entering our universities today who don’t have a direction. They’re simply living day-to-day and not giving a thought as to what’s really important.
The importance of an optimistic outlook
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 22, 2019
Some people always look for a reason to be unhappy. They walk into a beautiful meadow, and pass all the flowers just to find the cow manure in the corner so they can complain! In my years of ministry, I’ve seen many people just like that. But if I had the choice, I’d definitely prefer to be with people who look for the positive.

A little boy went outside one day to fly a kite. Never having flown a kite before, he had obvious doubts. But his father assured him that all was well, and the kite would go up as planned. As the boy unraveled the string and watched the kite go up, he was heard to say, “I knew it would fly. My daddy said it would!”
How to live with a clear conscience
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 20, 2019
There was a man who bought a beautiful Labrador retriever and loved showing him off to the neighbors. But one day, he looked out the back door and his beautiful dog had the neighbor’s pet rabbit in his mouth. He didn’t know what to do, so he gently pried the dog’s mouth open and pulled out the rabbit. But it was too late. The rabbit was dead.
What can God do for you?

In 1948, Billy Graham was preaching in a tent in Hollywood, California. It was his first large crusade, and it catapulted him to national and international fame as an evangelist. During the crusade, many people from the area, including those in the entertainment world, came to Christ.
The key to steering clear of hypocrisy
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 18, 2019
As long as I’ve been a pastor, I can probably count on one hand the number of people who’ve walked into my office and said, “Pastor, I’ve got a sin to confess. I’m a hypocrite!” Some have, but not many. So why is that? Because the main goal of a hypocrite is to cover up, rather than reveal.
Are you a cosmic accident?
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 15, 2019
I want you to picture your heart, that powerful machine pumping inside your chest. Believe it or not, it’s about the size of your fist and weighs less than a half a pound. Yet in less than twelve hours, it does enough work to lift 65 tons off the ground!
