A Tennessee congregation blessed a working mother of three on Sunday when they presented her with a $1,400 as tip for delivering 10 pizzas to their children's Bible study.
Audrey Martin, a single mother of three children younger than 5, recently lost her apartment and has been working for Domino's pizza in Rocky Top for about four months. Although Martin was not scheduled to work on Sunday, she went into work just to help out and wound up encountering a "miracle moment."
Martin was assigned to deliver an order of 10 pizzas to the Covenant Life Church for their children's Bible study. Upon entering the church, Martin was asked by the church's pastor, Rev. Tony McAfee, to come up onto the sanctuary stage during the adult service. more >>
12 million viewers recently watched "The Voice" contestant Jordan Smith perform one of the most popular hymns in the Christian faith, "Great is Thy Faithfulness," according to Nielsen ratings. The unforgettable performance garnered the singer the top spot on iTunes, beating out some of today's most popular artists.
The Kentucky native, now one of the final contestants on the 9th season of "The Voice," decided to showcase a song that hits close to home. Smith is a senior at the Pentecostal college, Church of God's Lee University, where he is part of the music ensemble Lee Singers.
He has publicly credited his musical accomplishment to the training he received at Lee University. In addition to the Lee Singers, Smith was also director of Second Edition, a six-voice ensemble with band, and an active member of the worship team that leads campus chapel services. more >>
"Lord teach us to pray." It was the grand request of the disciples of Jesus Christ, asking Him how to communicate with God.
Prayer is the most important conversation a believer can have, as it involves talking with the Almighty, who made Heaven and Earth.
The Son of God taught His disciples how to pray, and He demonstrated how to pray, both in word and deed. Below, in no particular order, are five Bible passages showing how Jesus prayed and what He said. more >>
"The Breakfast Club," a morning show created for the hip hop listening audience in New York, has become quite the go-to spot for preachers and christian artists lately. In a recent interview with Hillsong NYC's leader, Carl Lentz, co-hosts DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God, questioned the pastor about his modern day approach to christianity and what causes him to be linked to A-list celebrities.
Lentz was invited to the popular Power 105.1 studio after Kirk Franklin mentioned his name while visiting previously. The team was intriqued by how much Franklin respected the pastor and decided to invite him to be a guest on their show.
During Lentz's appearance, a normally vulgar Charlamagne asked him questions about his unique appearance as a pastor, his ministry and his thoughts on fornication. They inquired about his brand of preaching, and his relationship with global music star Justin Bieber. more >>
If faith and perseverance were muscles, then life would be the ideal resistance trainer, and Jase and Missy Robertson would be musclebound.
Toughened by life's tests and trials, the Duck Dynasty couple has cultivated the kind of faith that makes them sure about their family's future. " … Whatever happens, we're confident that God is going to be with us," Missy Robertson told The Christian Post last week in an interview. " … We know it 100 percent."
But that kind of certainty doesn't come easy — it's forged in the midst of adversity. For Jase and Missy, adversity came in the form of health challenges with their daughter, Mia. These challenges have taught them valuable lessons. more >>
Christian, have you ever found yourself ferociously dominated by some public or secret sin? Have you tried to fight, day in and day out, against some pesky lust of the flesh only to find yourself continually falling into its miserable grip? Have you ever become so frustrated in your walk with Jesus that you've considered just throwing in the towel? Have you ever felt so dirtied by the filth of your habitual sins that you couldn't fathom God forgiving you again?
Two years into my journey with Jesus, I became more than fed up with the lack of success in my fight against the flesh and decided to throw a spiritual temper tantrum. I stopped apologizing to God for my sins, threw my Bible under the bed, bought a bottle of Captain Morgan, and started smoking like a chimney. I quit suppressing my desire to engage in ungodly relationships and dove headlong into a very sinful situation with someone. more >>
