We need this because we all face temptation every day.

Jesus encountered lots of children throughout His ministry. He took children in His arms and blessed them. He used the gift of a child’s bread and fish to feed more than 5,000 people. He said that we must become humble like them to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Caring for children is not easy, and it often goes unappreciated. But to everyone who lovingly cares for children and leads them to Jesus, His words remain precious and true: “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in My name welcomes Me” (Mark 9:37).
Jesus loves children. He invites us all to be the children of God, and we are safe in His love forever.

How to Be a Friend of God – Connect with Skip Heitzig – Week of April 20, 2018

“Friend of God” is a beautiful title. It boggles the mind that any human being could be the friend of a God who needs nothing and has no equal.

Paul was a persecutor of the Christians. But when He met the Lord on the road to Damascus, His life turned upside down. He lived for Christ. What is the motivation behind His change? It was the love of Christ. Paul said, “Christ’s love compels us…He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again” (2 Cor. 5:14-15) Christ’s love is the greatest of all motivators. It causes those who follow Him to live for Him, not for themselves.
We love Christ too much to walk in hate, to use coarse language or to look into inappropriate magazines and so on. The love of Jesus restrains and constrains him to live in a way that pleases the Lord.

Are Chimpanzees “Persons”?

Since 2013, the Nonhuman Rights Project has been working on behalf of two chimpanzees, Kiko and Tommy, to have them declared eligible for basic rights—the same as if they were a “person.” Under current United States law, one is either a “person” or a “thing.” There is no third category. The philosophers admit that the idea of “nonhuman personhood” seems confusing, as we tend to use the two terms synonymously and interchangeably.

God’s Promises Are Reliable

God’s desires for us, communicated through his promises, will never change–our response to him is what will make all the difference.

Psalm 103:11-12 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord,
