Quote of the Day

If you long for more of the blessing of God upon the preaching of the Scriptures and the ministry of your church, and for more of God’s grace upon your life, then meet with your fellow believers and pray for it. In the midst of the contemporary church’s search for increasingly sophisticated methods, let’s not forget the pleasure God takes in the confluence of His children’s voices.

Quote of the Day

Charles Spurgeon said, "Brethren, we shall never see much change for the better in our churches in general till the prayer meeting occupies a higher place in the esteem of Christians."

Quote of the Day

“Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the great British pulpiteer, had said in a sermon almost exactly a hundred years before: The condition of the church may be very accurately gauged by its prayer meetings. So is the prayer meeting a grace-ometer, and from it we may judge of the amount of divine working among a people. If God be near a church, it must pray. And if he be not there, one of the first tokens of his absence will be a slothfulness in prayer.”

Quote of the Day

"Many sensational gifts and talents don't mean much over the long haul. The longer I live, the more I treasure people who just keep walking with God. They aren't up or down, left or right; they're always steady on the course, praising God and believing His Word."

Biblical Guide to 2016 Election

I so appreciate how Franklin Graham has emerged as a Christian statesman, unafraid to speak into our society from a framework of biblical values. He has done much the past year to rally people to pray for our nation, vote for biblical values, and encourage Christ-followers to run for public office. 

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is making their current edition of DECISION magazine available for free. The topic is a 2016 Electoral Guide.

Only God Can Help America

I have great respect for Gov. (and former Baptist pastor) Mike Huckabee.  He was, in fact, my first choice for Republican candidate for President.  Take 6 minutes to watch him interview Rev. Franklin Graham, David Lane, and Dr. Robert Jeffress below.  

David Lane is behind the American Renewal Project, a movement trying to get pastors to mobilize their people to vote faith and values.  I have been a part of a couple of his meetings in South Carolina this past year.
