    More Trouble May Come, but Take Heart

    We should not be surprised if trouble comes for us this year. I have been personally involved in 17 September launches. To be sure, the months that followed each launch brought precious fruit, many encouragements, great progress, and much joy in our labors. But never was there a year without troubles, disappointments, discouragements, problems, and difficulties of various kinds.... More

    Five Parental Promises for the Faithful Discipleship of Children

    The dedication of children is an act of faith in the presence of God and His people in which we solemnly and earnestly offer our children up to God for His wise and sovereign purposes in their lives, and offer ourselves up to God for the holy responsibility of being biblical parents and raising our children in the fear, knowledge, and joy of the Lord....

  5. Expand a vision of unshakable hope for the next generations

    Expand a vision of unshakable hope for the next generations

    This season has exposed the insecurities in the world - our work, economy, health, and plans are all insecure. What has also been exposed is the desperate need our children have for a hope that is secure, a hope that gives them a firm place to stand when the world all around is shaking, and a hope that is rooted in the truth of God’s Word - where they can see all that He has promised to be for us in Christ Jesus. The need that has always seemed urgent is now even more so. I imagine that you understand and see this need too - in the lives of children, grandchildren, and other children whom you love. Will you take a few minutes to watch this message about providing the next generation with an unshakable hope?... More

    Continuing Discipleship When Sunday School is Cancelled

    It has always been true that none of us “know what tomorrow will bring” and in recent days we are experiencing just how true it is. Our routines have been disrupted to one degree or another and we are having to adapt to unexpected circumstances.

    Zealous for the Discipleship of the Next Generations

    Few things encourage us more than teachers, parents, and pastors who are zealous for sharing the truth of God’s Word in homes and Sunday schools across the country, and in a growing number of countries around the world. Even though we have never met most of these faithful servants in person, we enjoy a precious kinship with them as true partners because Truth78 is zealous for the discipleship of the next generations. ...

    Thanksgiving to God who daily bears us up

    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”! ... More

  10. A Key Component of Effective Children’s and Youth Ministry

    A Key Component of Effective Children’s and Youth Ministry

    The people who have the most access, the best opportunity, and the greatest potential influence—not to mention the biblical responsibility for helping children walk in the truth—are their parents. My plea to parents and grandparents is that they make the most of the fleeting opportunity they have.

    The life of a parent today can quickly become consumed by so many good things that there is little time left for what is most important. Parents must not trade the greater things for lesser things.
