Evangelism. The word alone produces a tightness in the stomach and anguish in the hearts of many Christians. Does this nerve-jangling word produce that type of fear in you? That may be one of the barriers that hinders you from sharing the Good News of Christ. Does the Bible call us to brazenly accost people in the streets with the demands of the gospel, and do we somehow think we will be able to coerce the unbeliever into believing the "Good News?" Many Christians misunderstand the biblical directives and shy away from such prospects thinking "I don’t have the gift ...

The overarching story in the book of Acts is the evangelism of the lost. The early believers shared and witnessed the Good News of the Lord Jesus, and God added to their numbers daily. A Spirit-filled church is not self-centered and self-contained but mission-driven by nature. This does not mean that every child of God needs to evangelize in a faraway land. Carrying out missionary discipleship within our normal daily routine can equally bring glory to God.

These studies in Hebrews present expository instructions on the two related themes woven throughout the book: Revelation - What God has said to us; and Redemption - What God has done for us. Hebrews brings together God’s redemptive purposes which began in the Old Testament and demonstrate how Jesus Christ is God’s perfect and only provision for the sins of mankind. The totality of scripture moves us toward the centrality of Christ and this study seeks to explain: - The superiority of Christ over angels - The inadequacy of the Old Testament law to clear the conscience - Christ’s fulfillment ...

One of the distinguishing marks of the early church was its dedication to prayer. The early church exercised prayer in light of who God is, what He has done, and what He has promised to do. Included in God’s ordination of all things, He has ordained the means of prayer to accomplish His purposes. It is vital that we do not grow complacent toward prayer; it is through prayer we procure strength against evil.

Paul’s second letter to Timothy issues a direct challenge to all who are tempted to embrace pragmatism at the expense of truth. Timothy is confronted by confusion in the realm of doctrine and morality. It was vital that he understood the absolute priority of defining and declaring the gospel so as to be able to speak with authority in an age of uncertainty. Some 2000 years later we face the same challenge and these studies prepare us to meet it. If you feel inadequate for the task of sharing the Good News and wonder whether God can use someone like ...

The Bible makes it clear that we are heading toward the end of redemptive history. The message of the end is vital and has eternal significance. One out of every one person dies, and the necessity of faith should not be ignored or missed. God’s Word informs us that the Book of Life will be opened and a great division will take place between those who believe and those who do not. Unbelievers will face the reality of being thrown into the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever. Is your name in the Book of Life?

Chapter 15 is at the very heart of Luke’s gospel.

Jesus ends Chapter 14 with this instruction; "He who has ears, let him hear." Clearly most of us have ears, so He is really encouraging all those who are listening to pay very close attention to what He is saying.

The book of Ruth must surely be one of the loveliest short stories ever written. Its four chapters contain a tale of purity, faithfulness, innocence, loyalty, duty and love, yet it is set in dark times. The concluding verse of the book of Judges, which comes immediately before Ruth in the Bible, tells us that, "In those days Israel had no King; everyone did as he saw fit."

“He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing” (Deut. 10:18). In God’s kindness and compassion, the Mosaic Law made provision for those who were bereft, alone and in need. While Boaz’s act of kindness toward Ruth complied with the covenant law, it was not done out of any sense of compulsion or legalism. Boaz demonstrates the character of God, as he graciously and lovingly makes a widowed foreigner part of his family. Boaz points us forward to the One Who longs for all to become members of His eternal family.

Sometimes we’re called to step out in faith, not knowing the destination or the outcome. Ruth literally had to step out in faith as she went to the barley fields seeking someone in whose eyes she could find favor. As she proceeds in a seemingly random direction, God is actually ordering the events of Ruth’s life, leading her to work, food and a dramatically different future. Ruth had committed herself to the God of Israel, and she would soon discover that He was able to do immeasurably more than she could ever ask or imagine.

When we’re facing a future devoid of prospects or possibilities, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged. Ruth could relate. She was a penniless widow in a foreign land seeking a way to provide for herself and her widowed mother-in-law. Her future was totally dependent upon someone showing her unmerited grace and favor. Instead of giving up, she gives us an example of humility, initiative and faith as she seeks work and sustenance.
