After the inauguration America is going to need the church more than ever! The election is long past, but the divisions remain—and some of these divisions exist within our churches. Which leads us to a pressing question: How can we as evangelicals be unified and have a credible witness to the Gospel before the watching world? I would like to share three key steps that I think will start us in the right direction. 1. Listen Without Judging “… be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger…” – James 1:19 Have a conversation with someone who voted differently … Read More >

Day 7 – The Justice of Man

Today’s Reading: John 18:12 - 19:16Today’s Reference: 1 Peter 2:23 “When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly.” Jesus had six trials before His Crucifixion, and not one of them was fair. Hired witnesses, violence, judges doing double-duty as prosecutors…never has the phrase “travesty of justice” been more true. How did He respond? He knew He would never have a fair trial; a fair trial would never have condemned Him to death. But He was willing to trust God’s justice in … Read More >

The Attributes of God | Week 38: Omniscient

Does your heart condemn you with guilt, shame, or malice? Thankfully, God’s understanding of us is greater than what others or even we believe about ourselves. “By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything.”- 1 John 3:19–20 Here are all of the ways that you can follow along with 5 Minutes With Pastor Lutzer: On our Podcast via iTunes and Spotify On our Facebook page On our YouTube channel Transcript: Hi, welcome to … Read More >

Today’s Reading: John 17Today’s Reference: 1 John 3:1a “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” Jesus longs to have a personal relationship with you.

God could have accomplished His purposes in some other way… but this was the only way He could be “God with you,” adopt you into His family, and show you how much He wants your fellowship. If you already have a personal relationship with Christ, will … Read More >
