    Inspired Wisdom

    A-poe-la-pi is an elderly Akha, a member of a hill tribe people who live on some mountain ranges in China. During a missions trip, my friends and I visited A-poe-la-pi. He said to us, “Due to the downpour last night, I couldn’t make it to the gathering. Could you share with me God’s Word?” You see, A-poe-la-pi is illiterate, so the weekly gathering is the only way for him to take in Scripture. As we shared, he listened intently. And his earnest attitude reminded me that when we listen to or study the Bible to gain the wisdom of God,…

    The comfort of knowing that Jesus knows everything

    What if someone could hear your every thought, see your every action, or experience your every emotion? Scary idea, right? Well, join us on “Discover the Word” today as we continue our study in Hebrews and talk about how Jesus knows everything about us, but that’s not necessarily scary. It’s a great encouragement!

    Messages of Hope

    I love collecting old books. There’s something exciting about holding in my hands a work that’s been thumbed through over the years by others. In my mind, each tome has a story to tell far beyond the words on its pages—if only it could talk!

    Scripture as a source of encouragement

    When life becomes hard to handle, we all need words of encouragement to keep us going. Need to hear some words of hope? Tune in today to “Discover the Word” as we continue our series on the Missing Ingredient.

    God Speaks

    One day I had an interesting conversation with a young man. Although he believed that God existed, he didn’t think that He was directly involved in the affairs of humanity—a belief known as deism.

    How thinking of Scripture as a lamp can change the way we read the Bible

    God uses countless metaphors to describe His Word. And each one offers insight into the power of Scripture. Another insightful dialogue.

    A Message for All Time

    Many people read the Bible, but at the same time many people struggle with understanding and applying its ideas and messages to everyday life. In the excerpt from his book Applying the Bible, Jack Kuhatschek offers a guide to reading Scripture and grasping its truths. Taking a closer look at some of the most common…

    Thumbs Up

    Pandora is one of the musical marvels of the Internet age. It helps you create your own personal radio station by allowing you to “customize” your music. It plays a song and you then click a thumbs up or thumbs down sign to indicate whether or not you like it. You end up with a grouping of only songs that you like.

    A Voice in the Wilderness

    A solitary life . . . compelled by conviction . . . a voice crying in the wilderness . . . an ancient prophet . . . speaking on behalf of God. Who speaks for God today? How can we know whether we are hearing the voice of God or the voice of man?

    How God Speaks

    According to the Bible, prophets like Elijah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel heard the voice of God. In the streets of Capernaum, Jericho, and Jerusalem, followers of Jesus heard Him say that He spoke not only on His own behalf, but also on behalf of the Father in heaven who sent Him. Does God still speak in the land of Israel—or anywhere for that matter? To consider such questions, Day of Discovery’s Mart DeHaan and Jimmy DeYoung have returned to this Holy Land of the prophets to discover more about “How God Speaks.”

    Awake With His Word

    My eyes fluttered open, but the room was still dark. It was too early to get up. I sighed, adjusted my pillow, and hoped for sleep. Unfortunately, a lengthy to-do list bombarded my brain. I needed to buy groceries, deliver a meal to a friend, answer e-mail, schedule a doctor’s appointment . . . .
