FIRST-PERSON: Step forward in your faith

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – If you were a high-powered Washington attorney, the right-hand man to the President of the United States, sentenced to prison for committing a felony crime – and then had a genuine salvation experience in the midst of the chaos surrounding your personal life – what would you do after the dust had settled?

FIRST-PERSON: From head to heart

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – Let’s start with a riddle: What two partners live less than two feet apart but never meet? They’re both CEOs of vast organizations with overlapping jurisdictions; yet they remain best of friends, communicate instantly, and work in perfect coordination. Even the slightest interruption of their labors would be catastrophic, so they never sleep. Their combined efforts keep us alive and well.

FIRST-PERSON: The disciple’s path

Turn on any form of media today and you’ll find people labeling each other with pejorative terms, political epithets, and personal insults. Social media actually emboldens individuals to criticize and characterize others without regard for truth in their analysis. This is the world we live in today. But as the disciples of Christ, we have His words to follow when He said, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35). How do we demonstrate that we are His disciples? We walk in love.

FIRST-PERSON: God’s marching orders

EL CAJON, Calif (BP) – When U.S. Navy SEAL trainees are sufficiently exhausted and their minds are getting fuzzy, instructors will purposely leave out part of an order to see who is paying attention – because the goal is to teach obedience to orders. Explicit obedience. Many of the exercises involve small teams carrying a 300-pound log on their shoulders while completing the exercise. But an instructor will occasionally, when giving the order for the next exercise, leave out any reference to carrying the huge log. Team captains who note the omission lead their teams accordingly and get a brief break from carrying the log.

FIRST-PERSON: In search of a Savior

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – Do you remember when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem before His arrest and ultimate crucifixion? As He rode the borrowed colt through the Golden Gate of Jerusalem, a spontaneous parade developed.

FIRST-PERSON: Crowning achievements

The Bible is full of crowns. The first time the word crown appears in the Bible, it was spoken by the patriarch Jacob referring to the crown on the head of his son, Joseph, who ruled in Egypt.

FIRST-PERSON: One day closer

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – Recently I came across a story about a man who had a dream of standing in his house on an overcast afternoon. Suddenly he became aware of a change in the barometric pressure. Somehow the air felt different.

FIRST-PERSON: A nourishing faith

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) -- The Master Gardener – our Heavenly Father – is also the Divine Nutritionist. Having made us with a biological need for certain vitamins and minerals, He designed odd-looking, sweet-tasting, orange-colored tubes with the very nutrients we require to maintain our health. To make use of the nutrients it needs to be dug up and squeezed.

FIRST-PERSON: The unexpected journey

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) -- Bible teacher Warren Wiersbe was invited to speak at the graduation ceremony of a well-known seminary, where he gave the budding pastors something to think about with this story:

FIRST-PERSON: It’s (already) beginning to look a lot like Christmas

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – One snowy day in the 1940s, Robert White was working as a bellhop in the Grand Hotel in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, when a stranger showed up. The man was a songwriter needing peace and quiet.
