“Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?” (Luke 14:34).

The dominoes of truth and morality are falling at an alarming speed in our culture. Nearly every day it seems there’s another attack upon Christian values and religious freedom. In my blog, in just the past few days alone, I’ve discussed several instances where the very foundation of our faith is being undermined (see here, here, and here).

How to spiritually connect with your spouse may be one of the most misunderstood concepts in marriage.

Couples tend to think in terms of spiritual activities they ought to do together.

For example:

We know we should read our Bibles, pray and go to church together and memorize Scripture.

Without question, there are important spiritual disciplines, and they fit the personality of some couples especially well. These are men and women who are so structured they treat devotions almost like mini-church.

Today’s culture will often take issue with traditional Christian perspectives.

That’s what makes what will happen on April 16 all the more encouraging.

On that day, an estimated 18,000 students will share a Christian perspective on sexuality at their high schools and colleges thanks to Day of Dialogue, a student-led free speech event.

Think about the courage it takes for teenagers to commit to sharing a hope-filled, Bible-based perspective on sensitive social issues like marriage, sexuality and gender-identity issues.

Did you watch the epic miniseries The Bible that aired on The History Channel in 2013?

If so, you were in good company. It was a surprise smash hit.

Why do I say a “surprise”?

Because network executives didn’t believe anyone would want to watch a miniseries about the Bible on TV. The History Channel hoped the program would get as many as three million viewers. But when all was said and done, over 100 million people had watched the series.

Life can be tough, and it inflicts wounds in us all.

The question is, what do we do with the pain?

In many cases, the only solution we know is to push the pain beneath the surface of our hearts and minds and work to keep it there. We think that if we can just block out our negative memories, the bad feelings will go away. And they do … for a while.  But, eventually, our strength gives out, and all that pain comes right back up to the surface.

Joni Eareckson Tada is an overcomer. At 17, she dove into shallow water and surfaced a parapalegic. For nearly 50 years now, Christ has worked through her story and life to encourage others with disabilities similar to hers.

The late Louis Zamperini was an overcomer. As detailed in “Unbroken,” the book and Hollywood movie about his life, he was shot down in World War II and barely survived 40 days adrift at sea. He was “rescued” by the Japanese only to become a prisoner of war, then beaten and tortured mercilessly.
