A Religion Worth Believing

This past week, Rebecca and I flew down to Dallas to attend the funeral of her sister-in-law who had suffered with various ailments for 20 years. She leaves behind her husband, three children, and several grandchildren. Every time I attend a funeral I’m reminded that this is where our Christian faith comes most clearly into focus: we are convinced that all who die are fully conscious in the afterlife, and those who are believers are with the Lord and their bodies await the resurrection. We shall someday join them, and “forever we shall be with the Lord.” Any religion … Read More >

Day 14 – Saved and Unsaved

Today’s Reading: Luke 23:39-43Today’s Reference: Matthew 12:30 “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.”   “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” Do you realize that both thieves offer up a prayer? The unrepentant thief said, “If you are the Christ, save yourself and us.” That’s a prayer. He wasn’t so concerned about eternity. He said, “Just get me off this cross.” He prayed and yet was lost forever, because he cared only for physical deliverance in … Read More >

Day 25 – The Way Prepared

Today’s Reading: John 14:1-7Today’s Reference: Revelation 1:17b-18 “Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.”   “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” Those who haven’t accepted Christ’s redeeming work have every reason to fear death. Every last affront to God’s holiness will be paid for with their personal suffering—for eternity. But if we have accepted Christ, we have nothing to fear. Jesus has gone ahead of us to prepare the way … Read More >

A Prayer that We, Being Gripped by the Reality of Both Hell and Heaven, Would Make Sure of our Personal Salvation

And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”—Revelation 20:15 “And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.”—Revelation 22:5    The contrast between an eternal hell and an eternal heaven could not be more vivid, more motivating and above all, more frightening. When I read these passages, I ask myself: where are the people who are too good to go to … Read More >

A Transforming Prayer to Grasp the Implications of Our Identification with Jesus Christ

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”– Galatians 2:20 The changes God makes in our lives after our conversion are profound and lasting; God does a deep work that rituals cannot perform. Consider this: God so profoundly put us into Jesus—in a legal way—that His history becomes our history. We were crucified with Him, and we were “raised with Him” (Romans … Read More >

Day 24 – In the Father’s Hands

Today’s Reading: Luke 23:46Today’s Reference: John 10:28-29 “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my had. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, an no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.” “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” Jesus’ life wasn’t taken from Him. He delivered it up at precisely the moment He chose; it was the moment He had suffered the full measure of wrath for our sins and His work was … Read More >
