Thinking Biblically, Part 1

Thursday, February 20, 2020

Chuck Swindoll

Thinking is hard work. Perhaps that’s why so few people engage in it. Precise, perceptive thinking doesn’t come to the lazy; it only comes to those with mental determination and discipline. But in a society driven more by emotion than God’s wisdom, how can we discern the truth? Thinking must begin in the mind, and the mind must be squared with a straight and true standard.

Never Quitting, Part 3 - Wednesday, February 19, 2020

We live in compromising times. When the heat is on and the opposition is mounting, it’s tempting to surrender your values and say, “Forget it. I give up!” Resignation is far easier than perseverance. If you’re ever tempted to acquiesce to unfavorable standards, resign your ministry at church, or forfeit your convictions by sugar-coating the truth, this message is for you!

Never Quitting, Part 2 - Tuesday, February 18, 2020

The apostle Paul said, in Philippians 3:14: “I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Quit simply wasn’t in the man’s vocabulary. We ought to erase it from ours as well. And Chuck Swindoll says that we can if we’ll hear and heed Paul’s last words to his young friend and protégé, Timothy.

Never Quitting, Part 1 - Monday, February 17, 2020

“Never give up, never give in.” This could have been the motto of Paul’s life. A man of grace and grit, Paul didn’t know the meaning of quitting. Despite constant hardship, physical abuse, emotional anguish, verbal assaults, false accusations, multiple imprisonments, and heartbreaking abandonment, Paul pressed on toward the prize of knowing Christ.

Overcoming Failure, Part 3 - Friday, February 14, 2020
Overcoming Failure, Part 2 - Thursday, February 13, 2020

It’s so difficult to say the words “I failed.” Students sink when the exam comes back with an “F.” We despair when a business venture goes belly up. And it’s even worse when a marriage fails. Today Chuck Swindoll gives biblical wisdom on what to do when we’ve completely blown it. In our lowest moments, we don’t need platitudes. We need a clear path to recovery.

Overcoming Failure, Part 1 - Wednesday, February 12, 2020

Mistakes are embarrassing. When you’ve slipped and said something reckless, it takes humility to clean up the mess your words caused. But failure is a much bigger deal than a mistake. Whether a failed business, a failed relationship, or failure to take care of your health, recovery takes far longer. But God opens the path to restoration when we follow His prescription for recovery.

Sustaining Enthusiasm, Part 3 - Tuesday, February 11, 2020

If we’re not careful, complacency will breed cynicism, which is a kissing cousin of contempt. That’s what happened to the ancient Israelites before they entered the Promised Land. Daily miracles became daily ordinaries, and the people grew complacent, cynical, and contemptuous. It requires deliberate effort to maintain a spirit of excitement about your faith.

Sustaining Enthusiasm, Part 2 - Monday, February 10, 2020

“Familiarity breeds contempt” is an old cliché because it’s nearly always true. However, before contempt, familiarity breeds complacency—a ho-hum attitude that is satisfied with the status quo. Those who spend time with the things of God should keep this in mind, because overexposure can both dampen our enthusiasm and damage our awe for God.

Sustaining Enthusiasm, Part 1 - Friday, February 7, 2020

During the Olympic games, it’s fascinating to watch marathoners leap into their stride. When the gun cracks, world class athletes settle into a pace they’ll sustain for the next 26 miles. Few of us could run the first stretch, let alone the entire course. The Christian life is a marathon. In this series, Chuck Swindoll teaches us how to sustain our enthusiasm over the long haul.
