One of the primary ways in which we share the story of Jesus with other people is by sharing the story of us -- and by "us," I mean the tale of "Jesus and me." Our personal testimonies are real-life accounts of how Jesus Christ has made a difference, how God has truly...

Our youth group recently returned from their annual mission trip. Wednesday evening they hosted a discussion before the church to explain where they went, what they did, share funny stories, and generally fill us in on all things mission trip. It was a great way for ou...

One time-honored way of calling out someone who talks a good game is to say, "Put your money where your mouth is." In other words, if you really believe what you're saying, then back it up with cold, hard cash. Prove its worth to you by assigning it a monetary value --...
