More than 370 days have passed since Thanksgiving last year and, according to David in Psalm 68:19, the Lord has borne us up every one of those days. And so we say, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up”!
Do you ever find yourself wondering how best to fit family devotions into a full schedule of school, sports, music, and church commitments? Bruce Ware offers a practical suggestion. He says it’s helpful to think through ways that we can recall the past words of God, the past works of God, and the everlasting character of God together as a family throughout everyday life.
Our greatest responsibility to the next generations, detailed in Psalm 78, is to make known to them the glorious realities of God's holy Word. Passing on the faith begins with biblical literacy, the focus of Truth78's "From Childhood You Have Known" conference in Louisville, KY, October 18-19, 2019.
We've provided here links for the video of the plenary sessions and audio and handouts for the breakout seminars.
En Truth78 estamos complacidos de anunciar el lanzamiento de la nueva versión revisada de ¡Jesús, Cuán Salvador! Un estudio para niños acerca de la Redención, un currículo de 40 semanas para 5 años - 7 años
Thanksgiving is next week, and many of you are probably anticipating hours of cleaning to ready your home for company, preparing the perfect turkey, planning a dozen side dishes, setting a beautiful table, or traveling across country to grandma and grandpa’s house. In all the busyness, how can your family worship God during your Thanksgiving day?
How can we as parents and teachers help children understand the glorious riches of the gospel? It begins by understanding how the role that God has given us is like that of a farmer. Have you ever pictured yourselves as farmers and your children and students as soil?
As we were sitting in the Cleveland Clinic waiting room, I received a text recording sent by a young mother in our church. I tapped the arrow and heard this sweet reminder spoken by her twelve-year-old daughter, "Hi Mrs. Michael and Miss Kristi. We prayed for you. God's eye is watching and His hand is working to uphold and govern all His creation to fulfill all His purposes."
November 11th is Veterans Day (Armistice Day) in the United States. It is a federal holiday for honoring our military veterans. To honor means to show reverence and respect, hold in high esteem, pay homage to, etc. Unfortunately, the whole concept of “honor” has become increasingly absent in our culture. It has been replaced with flippancy at best, and utter disdain and denigration at worst.
One of the things that brings a smile to my face every Sunday morning is the presence of little children—even some 2-year–olds—sitting with their parents in the corporate worship service. They are not all perfectly behaved, and sometimes their parents look a little frazzled by the end of the service. A few children won’t make it all the way to the end and will be taken out by a parent. And, once in a while, a child who should be taken out is left in the service. But these are very minor inconveniences compared to the wonderful benefits of having children in the corporate worship service.
It is amazing to me how many times—especially in life’s most difficult situations—the words of great hymns come to mind to guide my thoughts and emotions.
…though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet…Jesus who died shall be satisfied, And earth and heaven be one.—This is My Father’s World
…The prince of darkness grim, We tremble not for him—His rage we can endure, For lo his doom is sure: One little word shall fell him.—A Mighty Fortress
…Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love: Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, Seal it for Thy courts above.—Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
