Football players from Eastern New Mexico University are being hailed as heroes after lifting a truck off a man in Portales, New Mexico on Wednesday.
Chevy Mikaele and Ben Langford were attending church service on Wednesday night when they heard a man yelling for help. When they went outside, they saw John Reilly trapped underneath his truck, which had flipped over.
Thomas Torrey is the man behind the Moments initiative on INSP and was specifically hired to create the campaign, which airs creative and biographical "moments" instead of commercials on the channel. They are meant to inspire and draw people in. He spoke with The Christian Post on Friday about his work and the idea of Christian programming in a traditionally secular environment.
"The idea came from our CEO, who wanted to produce original content for INSP. He wanted to have a voice out in the world and had the initiative to start with short films that could fit in with the programming that would entertain and inspire our viewers. Most of the ideas come from the team that comes up with and executes the short films. We have a few different formats and everything comes from us internally," Torrey explained of his work for INSP.
The Moments initiative has featured well-known actors and actresses in both fiction and non-fiction films and has been recognized with several awards such as Telly Awards, Summit Creative Awards, New York Festivals Film & Television Awards, and many more. The films are meant to "inspire, encourage and entertain viewers with stories that celebrate love, faith, redemption, patriotism and other timeless truths," its website states. more >>
As Christians, we know that we can at times we can have a bitter spirit. It can happen to any one of us if we are not careful. The root of the bitterness can grow a substantial amount before we overcome it with goodness.
Having an unforgiving attitude, unresolved anger, resentment, hate, jealousy, and continued disappointment are just a few of life's struggles that cause us to plunge into bitterness. When we are dealing with a bitter spirit, we often look for help or someone to heal us of the bad feeling.
The Word of God is the healing balm for a bitter spirit. Reading through it in small doses at a time can help release the tortured soul to know love, joy, and peace from the Holy Spirit. more >>
Veronica was never prepared for what her own mother was ready do to her. She was told that she did not love her, and then did something terrible that landed her in jail for 40 years. Just when Veronica thought she lost it all, God sent an angel to save her.
This was going to be Veronica's first Christmas in an orphanage and this is tough for any kid to deal with. She had been at her lowest point when she received a life-changing gift she will never forget. Veronica was sent an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. This shoebox was life changing because it made her realize there are people out there who care about her. At this point in her life, that was extremely important to keep her motivated.
The shoebox that Veronica received renewed her faith in God and family. She went on to work in the orphanage and help those who were in the same position as she was with no family. more >>
Several large Bible ministry groups are calling for the first International Day of the Bible and are encouraging groups of any size to read or articulate Scripture in creative ways publicly or online without any commentary at noon local time on November 24.
"This is a very simple act of faithfulness and honor to God about His word," Richard Glickstein, president of the National Bible Association, told The Christian Post. "God's word is meant to encourage us and bring us personal hope, but it is also meant to bring us together to realize that this is such a great gift ... and trust that He can change our world through it. The words of God changed my life and continues to. It's not our event, we hope it's an event for the body of Christ and those who love God, come together and thank Him."
Organizers ask in their announcement: "Have a favorite Psalm? Or, a special passage that has helped you through tough times? Want to share with the world how much the Bible means in your life? Or ask Him to bless your nation?" People of all ages are being invited to participate in International Day of the Bible by taking pause for a few minutes to read or even sing Scripture or otherwise creatively express their love of The Good Book. more >>
