How to Love Your Ideological Enemy
Current Happenings

I often receive messages from people who hold to historic church teachings but are increasingly uncertain about how to share these beliefs openly in a cultural climate that’s increasingly hostile to them. One woman, for example, wrote that she wants to “maintain the message of Christ's love and grace mingled with the truth that is so important not to withhold” but finds it hard to do so among diverse friends. Another shared that she hesitates more and more to speak out for fear of...

To Actually Know God
Discipleship Moment

by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson


I appreciated the gospel. I was grateful for the promise of a secure eternity, but one day I came face to face with a sobering realization. I believed in Jesus but I didn't love Him. I don’t remember the exact day I sat staring at John 17:3, but I’ll always remember the challenge I heard in Jesus’s own words: “This is eternal life, that they might know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

The scripture was familiar to this church girl, but the hope I...

Dr. Seuss Prayers
Discipleship Moment

by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson


I had long followed the Dr. Seuss method in search of the elusive certainty that I belonged to God. Every altar call aggravated the inward struggle, so…

I prayed the sinner’s prayer in a car. I prayed it near and I prayed it far.

I prayed it in a tree. I prayed it on bent knee.

I prayed it once for all, and I prayed it each time I heard an altar call.

The wonderful news is that when my focus changed from trying to know if I was saved to knowing the God who saved me, He began to...

Creativity Isn't Optional for the Church
Current Happenings

We love to divide people into groups, with labels that make us easy to understand. While this plays out in the Church, in politics and probably innumerable other spaces in our culture, a label millennials love to throw around is “creative.”

You’ve heard people refer to others as “creatives,” to themselves as “a creative” and various other versions. The opposite is true, too: If you’re not the type to consider yourself creative, you think of yourself as, well, not creative....

Inspirational Quote

 If the Lord Jehovah makes us wait, let us do so with our whole hearts; for blessed are all they that wait for Him. He is worth waiting for. The waiting itself is beneficial to us: it tries faith, exercises patience, trains submission, and endears the blessing when it comes. The Lord’s people have always been a waiting people

- Charles Spurgeon
