As we conclude our series on Children Of An Awesome God, Pastor Lutzer shares three stories of people who chose to love God and love others even in the face of harsh circumstances.
Today, we take a look at Romans 8:38-39, and closely examine God's unconditional love for us. The Apostle Paul confirms that there is truly nothing in creation that can separate us from His love!
Last week we asked, if God is for us, who can be against us? We have an equally important question to explore today: If God has justified us, who can condemn us? Knowing the answer is crucial to our relationship with Jesus!
“I’ll tell you, I have no hope. I see no hope for the world.”
Those are the words of Sir Winston Churchill to Billy Graham when they met after Graham’s 1954 Greater London Crusade. Churchill opined that the headlines were filled with murder and the possibility of war; Communism, he said, might conquer the world. Then he asked more personally, “I am a man without hope…do you have any real hope?[i]
That’s the question everyone is asking: Do we have real hope?

Do you know what all is included in the "price of the ticket" of your salvation? We all know that God sacrificed His Son for us. Today we'll see how there's nothing that He will withhold from His children!

The video showing George Floyd dying with his neck under the knee of a police officer, as three other police officers stood looking on, has sparked universal outrage. And with good reason. I found myself wanting to shout, “No! You can’t do that!” as the footage played on our television screens. Someone opined that it was “a reflection of poor police training.” I disagree. You don’t need to have police training to know that restraining an unarmed man by placing your knees on his neck as he lies on the pavement crying that he can’t breathe is ...
None of us are strangers to suffering. We understand all too well the "groaning" that Paul describes in Romans 8. But Paul reminds us not to minimize the value of suffering. Our trials should make us eagerly long for our heavenly inheritance!
Ravi Zacharias, a well-known apologist and persuasive Gospel preacher, died this morning, May 19, 2020. His legacy will continue through the organization he founded—RZIM (Ravi Zacharias International Ministries)—which trains and supports scholars who defend and preach the Gospel in many countries of the world.
When you talked with Ravi, he made you feel as if you were the only person in his world. In his Q and A sessions at universities, he answered with great attention and respect, no matter how antagonistic the questioner might be. When he was ...
