Does Jesus Ever Grow Weary of Our Failures? Read ‘Gentle and Lowly’


When the Bible refers to the heart, it’s not referring to our emotional life but to the epicenter of our entire being. In biblical terms, the human heart is not a part of who we are but the essence of all that we are.

Do You Wish You Were More Passionate about Sharing the Gospel? Read ‘Facing a Task Unfinished’


In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus sends out 72 disciples to the towns He’ll be visiting with the words, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest” (Luke 10:2). Jesus is referring to those who proclaim the good news of the kingdom as “laborers,” with the “harvest” being those who are ripe to hear and then believe the message of salvation. In this passage, we get a glimpse of the first generation of evangelists sent out by the Lord.

Five Words of Wisdom for the New Year

I’ve always appreciated someone who could turn a phrase. My now-in-heaven friend T. S. Mooney was known for always being able to summarize his thoughts in a matter of a few words. He taught a boys’ Bible class in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, for fifty years. When I asked him on one occasion, “What are you seeking to do with these boys?” he said, “It is my purpose that every boy would have a Bible in his hand, a Savior in his heart, and a purpose in his life.” No mistaking it. Absolute clarity.

Warmest New Year’s Greetings!


Dear Friend,

Warmest New Year’s greetings from all of us. Your generous partnership throughout 2020 has made it possible for Truth For Life to finish the year strong and begin 2021 with a real sense of responsibility and expectation. Like me, you will have grown accustomed to hearing people say of last year, “I’ll be glad when this is over.” In light of the peculiar challenges and in the face of uncertainty and loss, that refrain is not surprising. However, we believe that every day is a gift from the Lord and that our times are in His hands, and this corrects our temptation to wish our lives away. It is all too easy to forget that all we have and all we are is a gift of God’s grace.

Hymn: “Rescue the Perishing” by Fanny Crosby

Rescue the perishing,
Care for the dying,
Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
Weep o’er the erring one,
Lift up the fallen,
Tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save.
