Tommy Rowden had just been gloriously saved and couldn’t wait to tell his friends during coffee break at the plant where he worked. But the in-house infidel was quick to retort, “You can’t believe the Bible! It’s full of mistakes.” “For instance?” “Like, where did Cain get his wife?” Tommy hadn’t heard that one, but said he’d look for the answer. The next day in the break room, the infidel was quick to ask, “So did you find the answer?” “Yup,” said Tommy. “It’s right there in the Bible.” “It is?” “That’s your problem; you’ve got to read the Bible.” “So what’s the answer.” “You know how God...

There is great irony in the notion that salvation means “giving your life to Christ.” Sinners are dead and have no life to give; it is Christ who gives His life to us. Note four precious New Testament phrases that remind us of God’s four bank accounts from which He pours out His resources to us, the unworthy recipients: “the riches of His goodness” (Rom 2:4) that are designed to lead sin-weary seekers to repentance; “the riches of His wisdom” (Rom 11:33) that remind us only God could have conceived and accomplished the marvelous plan of redemption; “the riches of His grace” (Eph 1:7) that...

Johnny Wagner fled from a drunken father and an abusive stepmother when only eight. He was drinking by age eleven and, apart from a stint overseas with the 132nd Infantry, Johnny spent most of his life begging money for liquor on Chicago’s Skid Row. He was well known to the police and a frequent occupant of the drunk tank. Finally, sick and tired of being sick and tired, he staggered into a Madison Street mission. Through the fog of his abused mind, the light of the gospel shone in. That night Johnny prayed, “Jesus? You here? I’m on the level. Come on in and clean me up, please. I’m dirty...

The story is told of some missionaries who were going to New Guinea. As they drew near, the captain of the ship said to the leader of this little band, “Listen, I really feel badly about this. This land is littered with white graves. It’s hopeless! You’ll never get out of this place alive. I’ll tell you what. I’ll take you, no charge, back to England. If you go here, you’re going to die.” The missionary calmly said, “We’re not going to die here.” “How can you be so sure?” “We died before we ever left England.” Take an athlete who has died, one who has lived his life for the roar of the...

George Watmough hitchhiked across America, witnessing to thousands. Once leaving Tucson on his way to Phoenix, he was given a ride by a young man who stopped his witnessing by saying, “I was raised in a preacher’s home and have no time for religion.” “Isn’t that strange,” Watmoungh replied, “I don’t have much time for religion either.” Then he explained: “Religion is trying to get to heaven by something you can do, but Christianity is what Christ has done when He shed His precious blood and died as our sin-bearer. Religion says, ‘See what I’m doing.’ Christianity says, ‘See what Christ has...

“That in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death” (Php 1:20). In the same spirit, Jim Elliot prayed: “Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road; make me a fork, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” He grieved at the theoretical Christianity he saw everywhere; people debating theory but missing the most obvious and plainly-spoken commands of the once-crucified and now triumphant Companion of all those...
