As believers, we are one in Christ—not because we share common interests, but because we share a common life! And this bond far transcends any political opinions or disagreements.
The church of Jesus Christ is not a political party. In a day of division and hostility, we must remember that the cross of Jesus Christ unites us.
As Christians, it is crucial for us to recognize that the flag of our nation—or any other nation—must be subservient to the cross of Christ. This is especially true at times when the cross is in opposition to the flag.

Have you ever thought about how you can prepare for Heaven? Life is short and eternity is long. What can you do now to anticipate the afterlife?
In the invisible world, Satan stands to accuse us day and night. But, praise God, Jesus also stands to defend us 24 hours a day. Romans 8 assures us of this marvelous truth!

Jacob met God in the wasteland. What wasteland are you experiencing today? No matter what it is, you can rest assured that God will meet you there.
Did you know that the invisible world is just as real as the visible? The apostle Paul says that our afflictions are in this world, but they are "working for us an eternal weight of glory."
