International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

By Jason Ryan on November 8, 2018

Hebrews 13:3 says, "Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering." The Bible reminds us to pray for and support those who are suffering simply because they are believers in Jesus Christ. In many countries, Christians are harassed, discriminated against, bullied, even jailed,...

By Brad Quiring on November 4, 2018

One of Abundant Life's seniors, Loraine Haaksma, is repeating the challenge to read through the Bible in a year and has come up with some great insights. The biggest: God...

Indispensable: Baptism

By Brad Quiring on October 28, 2018

Symbols mean something. It is good for us to know what they mean and how they apply to our lives. Baptism is a symbol. Baptism, in and of itself, is not special, but the truth it symbolizes is very powerful. It represents Jesus' work to save us from our sins. We proclaim Jesus through baptism.

Indispensable: Compassion

By Will Walker on October 21, 2018

God had compassion on us, so he sent Jesus to die for our sins and release us from the spiritual slavery and poverty of sin. Now, we must take the compassion we have received from God and give it to others so they can be released. Part of compassion is also meeting their physical and social needs. Abundant Life is...

Indispensable: God

By Brad Quiring on October 7, 2018

Indispensable God. We need God. Period. Without God, we have no life, no blessings, no hope, no existence at all. God is real and he is the One who defines all things in this universe. So many us live as if we don't believe that we need God for everything. A refining of our faith will then manifest itself in...

Indispensable: Gospel

By Brad Quiring on September 30, 2018

We cannot be saved on our own. We need Jesus. How do we know this? We have a message: the Gospel, which means, literally, the Good News. We need this Good News in order to be saved from our sins and from God's punishment. We also need to proclaim this message to others.

Indispensable: Church

By Brad Quiring on September 16, 2018

Jesus is the builder and head of The Church as well as our local churches around the world throughout history. Church is a family and a place. It is where we belong, welcome one another, learn about God together, and meet one another's needs. The Church is also the instrument in God's hands to proclaim the gospel to the entire...

Elisha: God’s Power Prophet: Dive In

By Brad Quiring on August 26, 2018

Many of Elisha’s miracles were done by him directly. God used Elisha’s words and touch to reveal His divine power. In the case of a foreign army commander afflicted with leprosy, Elisha didn’t even bother to meet him, he just sent him down to the muddy Jordan river and told him to dive in…seven times. Wouldn...

The Song of the Soul Set Free

By Bill Ehlers on July 22, 2018

There is a healthy guilt. The guilt that stings your conscience when you have done something wrong and caused pain. God intends us to feel guilty when we sin. God also provided the way to be cleansed from our sins and to have our guilt taken away, not just in the legal sense, but also in our personal feelings. Jesus...

Elisha: God’s Power Prophet: Baldness, Bad Boys and Bears

By Brad Quiring on July 15, 2018

In one of the most controversial stories of the Bible, one might accuse Elisha of overreacting out of his vanity. But, look at the whole story and you’ll see a deep-rooted disrespect not for Elisha, but for God and His Gospel. The whole nation of Israel was a moral and ethical disaster, and the time for a cleanup had...

By Brad Quiring on July 8, 2018
