Day by day, our kids are inundated with the depravity of this world, and it seems to be getting worse. Dr. James Dobson shares from his June newsletter, reflecting on the increasing war against children and the battle for their minds and spirits. He expresses his grave concern for our culture and raises the alarm so that a twisted society does not dictate the lives of future generations. Also featured are excerpts of a sermon from Pastor John MacArthur, illustrating not only culture’s slide into godlessness, but also its ultimate accountability to God.
Twelve years ago, when doctors told Pastor Jack Graham that they might not have removed all of his prostate cancer, he sank into a dark night of depression. Graham, the author of "Reignite: Fresh Focus for an Enduring Faith," shares that he felt then as if he’d been hit by a Mack truck and left in a ditch. Citing Moses and Elijah, as well as Lincoln and Churchill, all of whom battled depression, Graham explains that the key to finding your way through darkness is to saturate your mind with the truth of Scripture.
While Dietrich Bonhoeffer is known as the courageous German pastor who spoke out against the evil of Adolf Hitler, he also became a spy who sought to assassinate the dictator. He wrote, "We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself." In this Part 2 edition, Eric Metaxas, author of "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy," describes Bonhoeffer as an obedient disciple of Jesus Christ who understood that the believer is called to die to self and trust God in every circumstance.
During the regime of Adolf Hitler, a brave German pastor named Dietrich Bonhoeffer declared, "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." Eric Metaxas, author of "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy," highlights the moral courage of this man who knowingly risked his life to condemn Germany’s maniacal dictator. God is still calling Christians to speak out against evil going on today.
Are you currently in a season of stagnation? Mark Jobe, author of "What Now? How to Move into Your Next Season," is the lead pastor at New Life Community Church in Chicago. He says that when we’re feeling stuck and overwhelmed, seeking a fresh encounter with God will allow us to receive a new perspective. Just as the Lord took Joseph through crisis and pain, molding his character and preparing him for his calling, God is continually shaping and building us too.
