Do you view God as distant, unhappy, or angry? Do you wonder if He cares about your happiness?Some in the Christian community consider happiness an ungodly pursuit, one for the spiritually immature. They say that God calls us to joy, while happiness is what the world offers.If that's how you've been taught, you may be surprised by what our broadcast guest Lisa Harper has to share – that God is happy and that happiness is a gift from Him that we should actively pursue.The post Does God Care if You're Happy? appeared first on Jim Daly.
I've always liked the poem by William Wordsworth titled “Character of the Happy Warrior.” Though not intended, it is an appropriate charge to Christians who seek God's strength in their efforts to engage winsomely.Here are a few poignant verses:Who is the happy Warrior? Who is heThat every man in arms should wish to be? …Who high endeavors are an inward lightThat makes the path before him always bright …Who, doomed to go in company with Pain,And Fear, and Bloodshed, miserable train!The post Don't Be a Miserable Christian appeared first on Jim Daly.
According to the latest research, 77% of Americans are social media users, with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest serving as the most popular sites of engagement. The growth, popularity and influence of this forum is staggering, especially when you consider that back in 2005, only 7% of Americans had any type of social media account.Clearly, not all social media users are equal. Many of us primarily use it to stay in touch with family and friends, sharing pictures, stories and other points of interest.The post Should Christians Criticize Other Christians on Social Media? appeared first on Jim Daly.
Jesus is your redeemer.I hope you believe that.Christians say that they do. That is what good Christian theology teaches, after all. But do we believe it?Let's face it, some days the hill we're climbing can seem so steep we lose hope that we can survive to the top. Life is hard. Jesus told us it would be. In John 14:33 says, “In this world, you will have trouble.” But he also offered hope to the suffering through His suffering on the cross.The post Our Hope and Our Peace in the Midst of Struggle appeared first on Jim Daly.
Watu Wote joins other films attempting what African sermons cannot.Two years ago, the heroic actions of some Kenyan Muslims brought their majority-Christian nation together. The Oscar-nominated film depiction of that heroism may do so again—if many people watch.Watu Wote is a fictional retelling of real-life horror. In December 2015, al-Shabaab terrorists stormed a bus headed toward the border with Somalia and demanded Christian passengers separate for targeted execution. Muslim passengers responded, “If you want to kill us, then kill us. There are no Christians here.” The Christian women were given hijabs to wear, while the Christian men were hidden behind bags.They knew the danger. One year earlier in a similar bus attack, Muslim militants killed 28 Christians who failed to correctly say the Islamic creed.Filmed on location in Swahili and Somali, the 22-minute film was nominated for the Live Action Short Film category at the 90th Academy Awards.“The film captures an issue close to Kenyan hearts, that apart from religious differences, we are all Kenyan,” said Timothy Ranji, bishop of the Anglican diocese of Mt. Kenya South. “The downside is that it will be watched by very few Kenyans.”Access to film is limited in Kenya. The nation ranks 77th worldwide in terms of cinemas per capita, according to UN data. Radio is a far more effective means of communication in the East African nation, Ranji said.And some, like William Black, may choose not to watch it. “The movie tells a good story, I’m sure,” said the American Orthodox missionary and professor at St. Paul’s University in Limuru, Kenya. “But it hits too close to home.”Black believes that terrorists want to push Kenya to the tipping point. “The narrow focus ...Continue reading...
