Practical aspects of the proclamation of the three angels’ messages — Ted N. C. Wilson

Only by relying completely on Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit will we be able to accomplish anything. God is now preparing us for something very unusual—the outpouring of the latter rain of the Holy Spirit. Let the second coming of Christ and His three angels’ messages be proclaimed by every Seventh-day Adventist around the world because Jesus is coming soon!

Of barks and bites — Pavel Goia

Jesus is coming soon! God has allowed particular neighbors to be located around us. Let’s not get upset or afraid. For many, their bark is worse than their bite. Let’s give them something they would like, treat them with love, and then gently lead them home.

If the Cross Could Speak — Hymers Wilson Jr.

We need to work together for a better society—just as Jesus did. Our actions will not be based on a notion of human betterment but on the prayer for divine grace, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10, KJV).

Sweet Communion — Joy Wendt

I cherished that the Communion was conducted in a way that reflected God’s love, compassion, acceptance, and infinite grace. This was another sweet Communion I would never forget.

Making Appeals and Getting Decisions — David M. Klinedinst

When we intentionally make appeals in the pulpit, people will respond, and baptisms will increase. In every congregation, there exists someone whose heart is ripe to respond. Whether we are making personal appeals in a Bible study or public ones from the pulpit, there is one essential thing the soul winner must remember: to get decisions, you must ask for them.

Reflections on the Pandemic and Final Events — Marco T. Terreros

Even with a tragedy as terrible as the COVID-19 pandemic, God gives us opportunities, and we should take advantage of them. Each of us should place our entire dependence on the Lord, sustained by a thorough study of His Word, meditation, and prayer.

In this pandemic, we need chaplains in an industry that regularly deals with sickness; fear; lack of hope; and, at its worst, death and dying.

Coming to the party? — Marguerite Shuster

The people Jesus spent time with were those your parents warned you not to hang out with. Why would He do that? And what does that mean for us?

The Bible’s final word on buying and selling — Steven Thompson

Three buying-and-selling events that take on increased relevance in our world’s quickly changing economic and social situation are included in the book of Revelation in its record of revealed end-time conditions. What do they show us?

To infinity and beyond — Justin Kim

Intimacy with Jesus is hearing that still, small Voice through reading, hearing, and studying the Word. And what that calls for is a response.

Carrying Jesus: Is it Too Much For You? — Vernon T. Waters

As colleagues in ministry, we need to remember our humanity and the essential need for balance in all things. Jesus has called us to carry Him to the world (Matt. 24:14; 28:19, 20), but before that can be fully achieved, we must develop intimacy with Him, guarding the heart with all diligence.

Serving in church leadership means being part of God’s movement at an appropriate time, for an appropriate place, and in an appropriate manner.

“Please protect us!” — Tina Whiteman

As we win kids to the Lord, let us be their safe place by protecting them from harm. It is your moral, spiritual, and legal responsibility, as church leaders, to do so—and anything less can make a bad situation infinitely worse.

​“The man nobody knows” — Norman H. Young

Let all of us who take the name of Jesus, no matter our culture, creed, or color, heed His radical reinterpretation of Leviticus 19:18.

May this example encourage pastors around the world to build genuine relationships with leaders in their community, including pastors of other denominations.

In vain? — Ekkehardt Mueller

We may not see the results that we desire, and some of the positive results that we witnessed may begin crumbling at our fingertips. The success of our ministry cannot be easily measured here and now.
