Life is short. So what?
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 27, 2020
You may remember an advertising campaign back in the 1990s by a popular running shoe with the tagline, “Life is short; play hard.” I remember thinking, when I first saw those commercials that most people probably want to live that way. Life is short; play hard! Have a blast while you last!
How valuable is God’s Word to you?
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 26, 2020
I was reading awhile back a book written by Dr. John MacArthur entitled The Sufficiency of Christ. In it, he tells about a friend of his who collects antique Bibles from all over the world and all ages in church history. One day, Dr. MacArthur’s friend showed him a Bible known as a martyr’s Bible that dated from the 1600s when Bloody Mary ruled England and there was tremendous persecution against Bible-believing Christians.
Avoiding the guilt that comes with gossip
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 25, 2020
It’s an unfortunate reality today that gossip has become an acceptable sin for many Christians, social media playing no small part. But I think I’ve found a good way to stop the rumor -mongering that’s so prevalent. When someone says something to you that’s gossip, simply ask, “Can I quote you on that?” Because if you can’t write it down and sign your name to it, you shouldn’t be saying it. On the other hand, if it’s real and valid, you ought to be able to sign your name to it!
How to defeat discouragement
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 24, 2020
I once heard a story about an auction they were having in hell. God said, “Satan, you need to reduce your arsenal.” So they were auctioning off some of the weapons of the enemy. And the one auctioned off at the highest price was the tool of discouragement because it is such a powerful weapon against us.
How to find your purpose in life
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 21, 2020
I saw a news story not long ago about some of the poverty in many portions of our nation. The reporter went into some of the roughest areas of some American cities to see how many of these people, who had absolutely nothing at all, lived their lives. And as they were interviewing some of these people, my heart was so heavy. None of them, it seemed, had any purpose in life.
The role of works in a life of faith
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 20, 2020
One of the former presidents of Princeton University once said, referring to the time when he personally received Christ, "Since that glorious day, every day of my life has been a 'P.S.' to say 'Thank You, Lord, for what You have accomplished in my life!'" What a wonderful way to look at our works, as our P.S. to God's already-written letter of salvation in our lives.
The best way to deal with doubt
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 19, 2020
If you were to make a very honest assessment, you'd have to admit that everyone experiences doubt at some point. But there are two kinds of doubters: sincere doubters and insincere doubters. An insincere doubter doubts and doesn’t want to believe. But a sincere doubter is someone who, even though he doubts, wants to know the truth.
How to trust God through pain and sorrow
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 18, 2020
It seems like every week – maybe even every day – I run into people who are facing very difficult times in their lives. I visit with men and women in hospitals, those who've lost loved ones, those with heartaches and family problems. But I've found there is a glorious difference in the believer who has a “but if not” belief.
The biggest challenge we face today
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 17, 2020
I was shocked to read not long ago that only 49 percent of college freshmen in America have a thought-out philosophy of life. That means over half of the young people entering college today don’t have a direction they’re heading, nor principles to guide them.
Will I know my loved ones in heaven?
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 14, 2020
I’m often asked, “Pastor, will I know my loved ones n heaven?” And my answer is always the same, “certainly, we will know one another in heaven! Do you think you’ll have less sense in heaven than you have here on earth? We know one another here; and there we will know fully and be fully known!
