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’.
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’.
What is Life All About?
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 8, 2019
What is the meaning of life? That's a big question today. For some life is simply a void. For others life is a vexation; they're miserable. For others, life is a vacation.
Making the Most of Every Day
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 26, 2019
Time is passing. I don’t know about you, but because of the rush of our days, it seems like it’s moving faster than ever before. And here’s the thing about playing the game of life: you can’t call time out! You can’t really drop out.
Can God count on you?
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 3, 2019
Do you ever think about your significance to God? You and I are very important to him! Across the centuries, the followers of Jesus Christ have been his hands and face to the world.
New Life Resolutions
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 1, 2019
What does it mean to be totally alive? How would you describe “living large”? Paul said in Philippians that the purpose and passion of life should be to live every moment as Christ would live it…to magnify Jesus Christ.
Where you can find ultimate satisfaction
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 5, 2018
In the 1960s, a song was written for recording artist Peggy Lee entitled, “Is That All There Is?” In it, Lee presents a very bleak outlook on the world. She’s become disenfranchised with everything and asks the question, “Is that all there is?”
How your kindness can change everything
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 31, 2018
Several years ago, I was preaching one morning on today’s Scripture, and we had a big hiccup in our sound system. The microphone was popping, squealing, and screeching. Needless to say, I was very frustrated with the whole situation.
What it means to live your new life
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 30, 2018
One of my very favorite stories from the Scriptures is the story of Jesus’ good friend Lazarus. Lazarus was sick. Jesus found out, but waited until four days after he died to come. Upon arriving, Jesus ordered that the stone be removed from the tomb and raised Lazarus from the dead.
How you can become more like Jesus
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 29, 2018
There was a 7th grade Sunday school teacher who told me about a time when she was working with boys one Sunday morning. One in particular was really cutting up quite a bit. He wouldn’t stay in his seat, wasn’t listening to the teacher, and was disrupting the whole class.
Obeying God's call to active living
By Dr. Jack Graham | August 20, 2018
I heard about a passive Quaker who had a cantankerous milk cow. And every time he tried to milk that cow, the cow gave him trouble. So on one particular morning, he was trying to get milk and the cow kicked over the milk bucket and spilled it all over the Quaker!
Lay down your rights
By Dr. Jack Graham | August 10, 2018
If a stranger looked at your life objectively, would they come to the conclusion that you are a follower of Christ? Take into consideration what your tastes in entertainment say about you. What about your language, ethics, and relationships?
When your faith gets real
By Dr. Jack Graham | August 7, 2018
One of the great challenges of faith is to let it touch and transform our everyday lives.
Moving beyond the mountaintop
By Dr. Jack Graham | August 6, 2018
Have you ever had a spiritual mountaintop experience with Christ? I hope you have. We need glimpses of Christ in all his glory to fill us with faith and boldness. And yet, as wonderful as mountaintop experiences are, you and I are called to more! Let me explain.
Finding God's Direction
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 26, 2018
As children of God, you and I need to be so sensitive to the eyes of God. Do you know what that means? Well, let me share a little perspective with you.
Maximizing your life
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 25, 2018
I want to remind you of something that’s of critical importance: This is your life!
Jesus knows your heart
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 23, 2018
Jesus has a way of getting right to the heart of our issues, doesn’t he?
