Believing in the God who is always there
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 23, 2019
I remember when I was in one of my first pastorates in the little town of Hobart, Oklahoma. There was an accident outside of that little farming community. And it turned out that three boys were drunk and crashed their car. They were all from Oklahoma City and they’d come out there just to drive the roads and tear things up.
Trusting in God’s saving grip on you
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 22, 2019
Of all the things I remember about my father, I remember his strong hands the most. You see, my father was in the lumber business and he had rough and calloused hands. But they were also strong hands and I remember the peace and security that my father’s hands would always bring just when I needed it the most.
Overcoming worry in your life
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 21, 2019
I heard about a man who worried all the time. But finally, there came a time in his life he just put aside all of his worrying. And people began to notice how much calmer and more peaceful this man was. One day he was sitting in a barber chair and his barber noticed the change in his behavior. So he asked him, “What happened to you? Why don’t you worry about things like you used to?”
Understanding the cost of being a follower of Christ
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 20, 2019
One thing that I firmly believe and always share with others is that salvation is a free gift of God and is accomplished on our part only by trusting in Christ for the forgiveness of our sins. But there’s a difference between accepting the free gift of grace and what I call ‘easy believe-ism’.
The exclusivity of Christ as the way to the Father
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 17, 2019
One thing I’ve noticed in talking to people who aren’t saved is that many see Christians as part of an exclusive club that only a few people can enter. And in general, people don’t like things that are exclusive because there is a feeling of being ostracized when something is exclusive and you are left out.
How to follow the Golden Rule
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 16, 2019
I read a survey a few years back where people were asked to name their favorite saying of Jesus. One of the most popular answers was “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Now, that’s a pretty good paraphrasing of Jesus’ teaching here, commonly referred to as the ‘Golden Rule’.
The struggle between sin and obedience
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 15, 2019
Every person has experienced a decision or a time in their lives when they’ve just been torn. Both choices have their benefits and their drawbacks, but deep down you always feel there is one that is better than the other.
Knowing God’s assured calling on your life
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 14, 2019
For hundreds of years, this little passage has been the focus of tremendous controversy. The reason for this is that you have God speaking and essentially saying, “I love Jacob and I hate Esau.” Paul even quotes this passage in Romans 9:13 talking about God’s sovereign choice.
Experiencing True Joy
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 13, 2019
When the Apostle John wrote this letter so long ago, he was very concerned that we experience the reality of Jesus Christ in our lives and the joy that He gives.
God Honors a Humble Heart
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 10, 2019
What a scene it must have been when the survivors of Noah’s Flood began to build the Tower of Babel. They were determined to build a monument to their pride and as their way of trying to approach God on their own terms.
