On Mission . . . in Chile

Chile is a Spanish-speaking country in South America. It is 4,329 km (2,690 miles) from north to south, which crowns it the longest country in the world.

Focus on the Faithful: Peter

We continue our Focus on the Faithful series with one of the New Testament’s most beloved figures, Simon Peter. We know this lowly fisherman-turned-mighty apostle well. After Jesus, his name is mentioned more times than any other, including Paul’s. Few Bible characters are more exposed before us than Peter is. We see all his flaws […]

Godliness in Action

As our church leaders sat discussing whether we should appoint more elders, we were left with the question “What is the principal criterion for a man to be an elder?” Several qualified men hesitated because they did not think they met the criteria, but Paul was not afraid to appoint elders in every church he […]

After dropping off my family at a lake near our home, I shifted our minivan into gear and headed to the library. While my husband and sons fished, I […]

Rise Up and Rebuild

In the Bible, there’s a whole lot of building going on. Noah built an ark for animals and humans to escape the Flood. People in Babylon built a tower toward heaven. Well, they tried. Moses supervised construction of a portable tabernacle in the desert, using skilled, Spirit-filled craftsmen named Bezalel and Aholiab. Some of you […]

Three Keys to Enduring Suffering

According to Open Doors, more than fifty countries are listed as hostile to Christianity. This means that if one becomes a believer in Jesus Christ as Savior, they can expect to face suffering.
