    What Makes Christianity Different? By Billy Graham   •   April 7 Share22K+ Tweet Home Daily Devotion What Makes Christianity Different? He is not here, but is risen.—Luke 24:6 Something distinguishes Christianity from all the religions of the world. Not only does it carry the truth of the redemption, by the death of our Savior for our sins on the cross, but it carries the fact that Christ rose again. Only the Christian faith claims that its Leader died and rose again and is alive at this moment. Many gravestones carry the inscription, “Here lies . . . ,” but on Christ’s tomb are emblazoned the words, “He is not here.” Christianity has no shrines to visit, no dusty remains to venerate, no tombs at which to worship. Many good men have lived, and still live, in the memory of those who knew them, but there is only one Man who conquered death—Jesus Christ—and He will live forever. Listen to Billy Graham explain the resurrection in one minute. Prayer for the day The account of Your resurrection never ceases to bring me joy, Lord Jesus.

    Friday, August 02, 2019 The Holy Spirit Is Your Helper 2       JOHN 15:26 NKJ 26 "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. Never forget that the Holy Spirit's desire and purpose is to help you -- not to hinder you. Also, remember that the Holy Spirit is a person, and should be treated with the utmost respect. Here are some ways the Holy Spirit desires to help you, and will help you when you allow Him to. Teaches Us All Things JOHN 14:26 NKJ 26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things . . . . Tells Us Things To Come JOHN 16:13 NKJ 13 "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, . . . He will tell you things to come. Abides With Us We are not facing life all alone -- as an orphan would. The Holy Spirit is with us continually -- living with us. When we need help He is never far away, but always right with us, waiting for us to call on Him for His help. Empowers Us To Be Witnesses ACTS 1:8 NKJ 8 "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Brings Life And Healing To Us ROMANS 8:11 NKJ 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Encourages Us ROMANS 8:16 NKJ 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 2 CORINTHIANS 13:14 NKJ 14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen. SAY THIS: Thank You Holy Spirit that You are my Helper! Thank You for helping me!

      December 5 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.  -Isaiah 9:6 Government restrains the chaos the serpent lets loose in the world. But government, too, can be caught in the deadly vortex if it has the wrong foundation. Law easily slides into force and tyranny. The only hope for liberty in a world gone mad is government based on love and grace. The Promised One will come bearing the government of the Kingdom of God. As Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God and Eternal Father, He will be strong enough to restrain evil, but gentle enough to be the Prince of Peace.

    Just Breathe May 20 “In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat – for he grants sleep to those he loves.”   -Psalm 127:2 Listen to today's Devotional Stress leads to burnout, and burnout often leads to depression. How does that happen? We take on more and more – more meetings, more activities – that sap our energy and demand our best. We think, “I can handle this, I’ve got it together.” Doctors tell us that stress – not heart disease or cancer – is the number one killer in the Western world. Stop for a moment right now, take a deep breath, and decide that before you add “one more thing” to your plate you will do what the Psalmist prescribes and “sleep on it.”

You are important

You Are Important!

 
 

 

1 CORINTHIANS 12:22,27 NKJ 22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.

There are NO unnecessary parts in the Body of Christ.

The devil wants you to think your part does not matter, so you will slack off.

But your part IS important. Your prayers are important. Your giving is important. Your witness to others is important.

It is easy to believe a famous person who ministers to thousands is vital in God's plan. But we need to be reminded that every member of the Body of Christ is needed -- including you!

Don't condemn yourself because you aren't doing a job that puts you in the spotlight. Don't worry that no one knows what you are doing. God knows.

Someone witnessed to Billy Graham. Someone prayed for Oral Roberts to be healed of tuberculosis. Do you know their names? God does. What if they hadn't been faithful and obedient to do their part?

What if the person who brought you the Gospel hadn't been obedient?

So, when you are tempted to be discouraged and think what you do doesn't matter -- resist those thoughts!

No one but God may see what you are doing, but it is significant.

Have confidence in God. He knows what He is doing. God placed you where you are. God has a plan and a job for you to do there. Be faithful and do it. When it is time for you to do something else, God will arrange it and lead you out.

Don't try to be somebody else. Just be faithful and obey God where you are.

Too many Christians think preachers are supposed to do all the work in the Body of Christ. Preachers may be likened to a mouth. A mouth is important. But a mouth is not more important than our hidden, internal organs. We don't see the liver and kidneys working. However, you could live without a mouth capable of speech, but not without functioning kidneys or liver.

1 CORINTHIANS 12:22 NLT 22 In fact, some of the parts that seem weakest and least important are really the most necessary.

A body may exist without some of its parts functioning, but it cannot accomplish as much as it would otherwise.

Do your part! God thinks it's meaningful. Don't let the devil convince you otherwise.

Maybe all you can do is pray, but that is most important.

Obey God and be faithful where you are. You are needed or God would not have placed you there.

SAY THIS: God says I am necessary and important.
