Today's Devotional: Nov. 28

Big and Small

Pastor and author Tim Keller has written, “To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.”[1]


Dr. David Jeremiah’s Why the Nativity?

Get into the Christmas Spirit Early this Year

Dr. David Jeremiah’s Why the Nativity?

We need to enter this Christmas season strong—ready to keep Christ in Christmas and share the life-changing Gospel message with a world in desperate need of hope!

You’ve probably seen in your own circles of influence that hearts are most softened to the message of Christ at Christmastime—people are more open to an invitation to a church service, more willing to hear (and even sing along to) a song about Jesus, and more interested in the biblical account of what happened in that little town of Bethlehem.

We need to share the story of a God who so loved the world that He sent His Son. A message that so boggles the mind that, more than two thousand years later, it’s still sending a thrill of hope into the hearts of those who hear it...transforming lives today and for eternity.

Now is the perfect time to reach our world for Jesus—and to take an incredible step forward in evangelism at Turning Point. Discover what we can learn from Jesus’ birth and more about the heart behind this incredible film by watching a powerful interview with Dr. Jeremiah and Sheila Walsh.

The World of the End

New Prophecy Book by Dr. David Jeremiah

The World of the End

We may not be at the end of the world, but we are at the World of the End—a time when Bible prophecy is intersecting with our culture, technology, unhinged morality, and worldwide strife as never before. And at this point in our culture, we must boldly proclaim the Word. This is why Dr. Jeremiah felt clearly led by the Lord to develop a new teaching series and book, The World of the End!

As you journey through The World of the End, you will learn how to:

  • Make the voice of Jesus a priority when considering the unusual events of the world around you.
  • See cataclysmic disasters, wars, and cultural divisiveness as signs of Jesus’ soon return.
  • Trust that God is in control and that His plan is still working to completion.

The Life of Elijah - As Seen on Turning Point Television

The Life of Elijah

As Seen on Turning Point Television

It is easy to think of biblical heroes like Elijah in super-human terms—especially when he had the ability to call down fire from heaven.

But in James 5:17, we read that Elijah, in particular, "was a man with a nature like ours." He performed incredible miracles exhibiting the power of God, while he himself exhibited ordinary, human characteristics. In other words, he was someone like you!

Join Dr. David Jeremiah as he examines the ministry of Elijah in the series Someone Like You by following along with the complete CD album, showing us how Elijah continuously followed the leading of the Lord in his life. Through this study, be amazed at how much you have in common with the prophet Elijah, and be ready for God’s leading in your own life.

A Moment of Thanks- by David Jeremiah

From this Point Forward

“A Moment of Thanks” by David Jeremiah

Life is hard, and every day is challenging. You may be wondering just now if you can go on. Perhaps another person is vexing you. Perhaps you’ve been maligned or criticized. You’re discouraged with unanswered prayer. Maybe you’re feeling like Elijah under the broom tree, wanting to die. Try praying with thanksgiving. A thankful attitude is the cure for many emotional ailments.

Thanksgiving is also the opposite of discontent. It’s easy for us to become disgruntled with various factors in our lives; but the other day, I read something I’d like to pass on to you...

How to Pray for Your Family

Family hurts can often cut us the deepest. When someone with whom we share our life lets us down, holding a grudge can feel justified. The pain is undeniable. But the only way to heal the pain is to forgive the person who hurt us. When we let go of the wrath, we not only reconcile the relationship, we also free ourselves from the bondage of anger. Jesus calls us to pursue forgiveness with God and others. This is the key to conquering evil, fostering healthy relationships, and maintaining a vibrant prayer life.

In the context of praying for our family, it’s worth noting that the Lord didn’t teach us to pray “Give me this day my daily bread” or “forgive my debts.” No, He taught us to ask for “our daily bread” and “forgiveness for our debts.”

Praying for the needs of our family and others is not just a thoughtful thing to do, it is our high calling. Does this intimidate you? Read more to discover why it shouldn’t.

We all enjoy planning for our family vacations and getaways with loved ones. However, how many of us spend more time planning a vacation than we do planning for the future? Probably most of us. Why? Because planning for a vacation is fun, exciting, and brimming with anticipation. Planning for our future seems to be a bit different since it can involve fear, confusion, and uncertainty. But, if you plan for your future legacy in an organized way, it can be just as simple as planning for that wonderful vacation that is so exciting. You just need to get started, and we want to help.

Tour the Land of the Bible with Dr. David Jeremiah

After leading several trips to the land of the Bible, Israel has become one of my favorite places on earth. Donna and I are excited to return for another Turning Point Israel tour, March 19-29, 2019.

We’ll visit historical places like:

  • Gethsemane
  • The Sea of Galilee
  • The Mount of Beatitudes
  • And more

I’ll guide you through these sacred sites and others, teaching God’s Word as we retrace our Savior’s steps. Imagine seeing the same landscape Jesus saw, being baptized in the Jordan River, or singing at the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem.

These life experiences will change you forever.
