Adrian Rogers

Faithful in Evangelism
with Adrian Rogers from 'Love Worth Finding'

Does God consider you a wise person? Frankly, if you’re not endeavoring to win souls, you’re not wise.

Fire Hydrants and Ill-Considered Tasks
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

A Form of Godliness (2 Timothy 3.5)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

Form is not substance. A shadow is form but it is not substance. A photograph is form but it is not the substance. A digital image is form (virtual reality), but it is NOT reality. Paul’s warning to Timothy (quoted below) was, in part, a warning about those who display a “form of godliness” but who deny…(continue reading article)

Gracious Judgment
''Winging It' from Stan Smith

Charles Spurgeon's "Morning & Evening"
Morning and Evening for May 10

"But now is Christ risen from the dead." - 1 Corinthians 15:20 The whole system of Christianity rests upon the fact that "Christ is risen from the dead;" for, "If Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain: ye are yet in your sins."

Saved by Animals

Animals have played a rather bizarre part in many chapters of both history and fiction. Rodents have been a fixation for some famous people.

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
The Rat Race

An explanation is necessary for Solomon's reference to death in the verses we read yesterday: "In the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom" (v. 10). Death, to Old Testament saints, was a mystery. They believed in life after death, but they were not sure of the…… — (click here to read more)

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Save

Save - The Greek word is sozo. In its basic meaning, it carries the idea of rescuing from peril, protecting and keeping alive.

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — August 23

It is certainly a reality in our day that too few men and women are willing to keep the "top side" of their souls open to God and to His light from heaven.
