What About Life-After-Death and Near-Death Experiences?

What About Life-After-Death and Near-Death Experiences?: Life-after-death and near-death experiences fascinate me. Shucks, they fascinate millions of people, if anything can be gleaned from the sales of books and movies on the topic. We so want them to be true. Maybe they are; maybe they aren’t. On one end of the spectrum, people cling to these stories to give them thea href='http://www.faithgateway.com/what-about-life-after-death-and-near-death-experiences/' title='Read more' .../a

The Believer’s Code: He Is with Us Through Grief

The Believer’s Code: He Is with Us Through Grief: He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces. — Isaiah 25:8 In Psalm 23, David spoke of walking through the valley of the shadow of death. That valley was not his final destination. David knew that we enter this valley from time to time as wea href='http://www.faithgateway.com/believers-code-us-grief/' title='Read more' .../a

as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way”— “a voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.'”
– Mark 1:2-3 (NIV)
Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org
We see this pattern throughout the Bible: God lets us know what He is going to do before He does it. He tells Abraham of the Egyptian enslavement of the Jews, He tells Daniel of a kingdom that will never pass away, and He tells the Jews under Roman occupation of the moment that the Lord came into their midst. If this pattern is correct then the great question that we face is, “What is God doing in our generation?” The Lord is not silent; it is our responsibility to listen.

Pride: Evaluating Your Focus

Pride: Evaluating Your Focus: Editor’s Note: Today’s devotional is excerpted from A Jane Austen Devotional, beginning with this selection from Pride and Prejudice. * “Pride,’’ observed Mary, who piqued herself upon the solidity of her reflections, “is a very common failing I believe. By all that I have ever read, I am convinced that it is very common indeed, that human naturea href='http://www.faithgateway.com/pride-evaluating-focus/' title='Read more' .../a
