"Me Too" Won't Make It - #6879
Maybe it's time for you to step out of the false security of a nice Christian environment. You need a Christian in-vironment. You need Christ in you, not around you. You don't need to rebel against your parent's commitment just to prove your individuality, you've got to find your own commitment to Christ...personal, powerful, and stronger than your parent's.
Never in the Oven Too Long - #6799
Right now, maybe all you know is it's really hot. Well, you have a guarantee from the Master Potter, "not beyond what you can bear." Oh, He might take you to the edge, but He'll never allow you to go over. God will let the heat make you stronger, but He'll never leave His masterpiece in the oven too long.
Share your faith on Facebook - cartoon explains how easy it is
Social media has changed everything in digital communication. For non-profits and Christian ministries, Eric Qualman chillingly observes in his new video, "The ROI of Social Media is: your business still exists in five years." It is really as stark as this – if your non-profit or ministry does not have an integrated social media strategy (rather than just trying to bolt-on a bit of Facebook or Twitter), you are in danger. Your church will also suffer, though not terminally, if it does not use social media, says Josh Burns. But equally significant – and greatly under-utilized – is this new potential for any Jesus-follower to share faith appropriately across relationships, using social media. YesEIs have produced a new short cartoon video explaining just how simple this it is to use their own curated choices of evangelistic video shorts.
Our Eleventh-Hour Lord - #6743
Maybe you've got your back to the Red Sea, the enemy's closing in and every solution has failed. Why don't you surrender completely to your Savior right now and cry out to Him, "Lord, I need a miracle." And you will be a candidate for that eleventh-hour Lord.
Keep the Child Alive - #6732
The first snow? Christmas? Amusement parks? They may or may not bring out the child in you. But knowing Jesus, trusting Jesus? That should keep the child alive in you. And I am so grateful that what Jesus did for us He said requires simply the faith of a little child to possess it. What He did on the cross, dying for our sins, loving us enough to pay the penalty we deserve, that that is something a child can grasp, and theologians can explore the depths of.
Bankruptcy Makes You Rich - #6710
Our safe, predictable, well resourced Christianity insulates us from really living by faith. And then God allows the bottom to drop out, just so He can hold you up. And you find out what He can do when there's none of you and it's all God. And then you can learn that He's enough. He fills up your empty account and in a paradox that only God could reveal to us.
Arial views of Calke Abbey filmed by model helicopter
Calke Abbey is a stately home in UK's East Midlands. Here’s a fascinating video shot by a friend of a friend using small radio-controlled battery-powered model helicopters (3- and 4-rotor) carrying a video camera. They are an amateur version of police or military drones. The pilot wears a headset to see from the ground what the camera sees and navigate accordingly. It really is almost like being up there. There are many spiritual parallels in flying.

The Tebow in All of Us
Tim Tebow understands the responsibility of divine positioning. We work where we work, live where we live, go to school where we go to school, recreate where we recreate for a life-saving purpose - to "shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life" (Philippians 2:15-16).
Who Stole the Cross? - #6479
We should be outraged! We've allowed Jesus' cross to be stolen from the center of our hearts, and our ministries, and our conversations. "The message of the cross," 1 Corinthians 1:18 says, "is...the power of God." I need to be as passionate about elevating that cross as the world and the devil are about eliminating it.
