The cure for sin
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 19, 2018

What if we learned that someone had the cure for cancer and kept it to themselves? How wicked that would be.

Jesus came to find us
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 16, 2018

Do you realize that religion doesn’t seek the one true God? That may surprise you, but it’s true. Religion is nothing more than man’s frail effort to create God in his own image.

Rebelling against God
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 15, 2018

As humans, we have a built-in desire to disobey God. You and I got it from our parents and they got it from their parents, and we all inherited this desire from Adam. This is why sins don't make us sinners. We sin because we are sinners!

We are sinful, but the truth doesn't end there.
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 13, 2018

I know there are people who don't like to hear about sin. They think it’s a meddlesome or outdated topic. But it’s against the backdrop of our sin that you and I can truly see all that Jesus has done for us. The depth of our sin speaks directly to the great depth of God's love.

The shelter from life's storms
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 12, 2018

When I was a pastor living in Hobart, Oklahoma, the parsonage had a little hiding place… a storm cellar in the backyard. And every now and then the storm siren would go off warning of the possibility of a tornado in the area. When that happened, people would run to their storm cellars to ride out the storm in a secure place.

There is a key password for connecting with God. The word is patience.  If you and I want to move toward an enduring faith, it begins with patiently waiting on and listening to God.

Overcoming the fog of doubt
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 8, 2018

“…he must increase, but I must decrease.”
 
—John 3:30
 
As a pastor, I’ve had many people ask me, “Why they are facing such painful life circumstances?” And this is a very understandable question to ask. Life circumstances like grief, sorrow, suffering, and heartache can stop us in our tracks.   
 
And often, I have to answer these people by saying, “I honestly don’t know why.”  Some things are imponderable. Of course, that doesn’t mean that we won’t understand sometime, but we may not know this side of heaven.
 
So there’s nothing wrong with you and I asking why. In fact, if you’re asking questions, you’re in good company. When John the Baptist, the man who introduced Jesus to the world, was imprisoned for preaching repentance, he also found himself in the dungeon of doubt. He sent word to Jesus, asking, “Lord, are you truly the Messiah or should we expect another?”
 
Now, if John, who Jesus called the “greatest man born of woman,” could feel the fog of doubt, take heart. But also determine to continue to move forward in faith… to trust… to believe… to hope.
 
Let the questions of life build your faith! Each trial is a lesson that can teach you about the content of your faith, the character of your commitment, and the caliber of your spiritual maturity. 
 
Trust in him… let Jesus increase in your life… and you will find your way to a place of absolute dependence in him and a victorious, enduring faith!

LET THE QUESTIONS OF LIFE BUILD YOUR FAITH!
