We Are Holy to the Lord

July 31, 2019

We Are Holy to the Lord The nature versus nurture debate in psychology questions whether our behavior is inherited or learned.

April 2, 2011

Devotion for April 2, 2011 Last year saw the 500th anniversary of the first decorated Christmas tree. In 1510, a fir tree was placed in a public marketplace in Riga, Latvia, and decorated with paper roses by local merchants in order to honor the birth of Christ.

The Importance of Honesty

July 7, 2019

The Lord’s Army

July 9, 2019

The Lord’s Army Society may be getting more secular, but angels have nothing to fear from this trend. A majority of Americans believes that angels exist.

The Arrival of the King

July 17, 2019

The Arrival of the King When the president travels by motorcade, streets and expressways are blocked. Secret service agents are positioned at strategic locations on overpasses and bridges.

Devotion for December 09, 2008

December 9, 2008

Devotion for December 09, 2008 Abraham’s and Sarah’s early responses to God’s pledge that they would have a son and become a great nation were something less than faith-filled. Abraham, for example, pointed out to God that in his currently childless family, one of his servants stood to inherit everything (Gen. 15:1–3). And Sarah is famous...

Elizabeth: From Disgrace to Praise

December 4, 2012
