The importance of persevering in the faith
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 16, 2020
I meet quite a few people today whom I would classify as “Alka Seltzer Christians.” Do you know what an Alka Seltzer Christian is? It’s a person whose spiritual life is just plop-plop, fizz and it’s over. Yes, there’s a lot of emotion, a lot of excitement, a lot of fireworks. But then they disappear. This is not real Christianity!
How to find stability in a changing world
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 13, 2020
I don’t have to tell you that we live in a changing society and culture. No thoughtful person can look at our world and the advances of technology without feeling a bit apprehensive. Humankind now has the capability of destroying the world as we know it.

When I lived in Florida decades ago, one thing I remember is the large amount of bird sanctuaries we had. These were places of safety and security for the birds where hunters weren’t allowed to hunt and predators were severely limited or even taken away altogether.
Do you choose comfort or battle?

I read a while ago a statistic that said 47 percent of the people who live in the state of Texas attend church regularly. That’s nearly half of an entire state! Somebody said there are more churchgoers in Texas than people! Yet, that statistic saddens me because despite having so many who claim to be Christians in the area in which I live, our faith has very little influence on our population.

In 1805, there was a naval battle between England and France that ended with Britain prevailing. Lord Nelson was the Admiral of the British fleet. So the French Admiral came aboard the English ship and stepped into the private quarters of Lord Nelson to surrender.
Are you all in for Jesus?
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 9, 2020
Every single person on earth has two basic questions he or she is asking: “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” There was a time when people went to the Bible to find answers to those questions. But now, people are headed in different directions. They’re turning to New Age movements, psychics, psychology, and even politics seeking to find meaning and purpose for life.
How you can move from death to life
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 6, 2020
I heard about a man from China who was keeping up a family tradition of putting a nine-course meal on one of his family member’s graves. One day, an American was also at the cemetery putting flowers on his family member’s grave. So the American watched the Chinese man place a full nine-course meal on that grave. He was amused.
The key to enjoying life

I was on an airplane one day on my way back to Texas, and as I usually do on flights, I sat back, relaxed, and pulled out a book to read. I had full confidence in the pilot, and wasn’t worried in the least about arriving safely.
Can you lose your salvation?
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 4, 2020
Perhaps one of the most well-known stories in the Bible is that of Noah and the ark he built. God told Noah that He was going to send judgment upon the earth in the form of a flood. But because Noah and his family were righteous, God told Noah He would save them and gave him plans to build a boat.
How God makes sense of your chaos
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 3, 2020
Two little boys were on a field trip with their class to an art gallery to see an exhibit of modern art.

So one little boy turned to the other one and said, “Don’t you think we’d better get out of here before they say we did it!”
