A Case For Corporate Prayer Meetings (And Practical Tips) By Adam Miller

“Corporate prayer proclaims the gospel. It builds a community of grace, trust, and vulnerability as we confess our needs and weaknesses.” As a pastor’s kid, I was at the Church whenever the doors were opened. That meant Sunday School, Sunday morning, Sunday night, and of course the midweek prayer meeting. I dreaded the prayer meeting. […]

Worship Includes Praying By Dr. Donald Hubbard

“The worshiper cries out to God. More than anything, he wants the Lord to hear his prayer and to give His favorable response to it.” In Luke 18:10, Jesus tells a parable about two men who went up to the temple to pray. Prayer is to be a part of worship. Paul wrote to Timothy […]

The Gospel Of The Kingdom Is Like An Old Hymn By Jared C. Wilson

“Just as in worship music and marriage, keeping the relationship fresh means frequently revisiting some old, familiar truths.” The gospel is an old hymn. The gospel is sheet music printed in antiquarian typeface on a yellowed page in a dusty book. It’s the “old, old story” and the “old rugged cross.” It is four verses—and […]

What Does God Desire From Us? By Adam Miller

“If we truly love God, we would want to share Him with everyone around us. This is what God wants, and this should be our greatest joy.” When we talk about worship, we often paint ourselves into a corner and relegate the topic of conversation to music. This results in even less constructive conversations about […]

Who Would Jesus Vote For? By Adam Miller

“Though every kingdom has fallen, the Church has survived. Even the gates of hell cannot prevail against it” I have never been a particular fan of the expression, “What Would Jesus Do?” Partly because it doesn’t work in every scenario. How is that question going to prevent you from drowning? Jesus would just walk on […]

LTJA: The One Who Ran Before Us By Dr. Donald Hubbard

“Life’s race is truly a marathon and not a sprint. It calls for patient endurance. We need to be prepared for the long distance and remain faithful.” The Letter to the Hebrews sets forth the superiority of Jesus Christ. It was written a few years before the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 […]

LTJA: The Answer By Adam Miller

“I am convinced that simply looking to Jesus will either give us the answers we are looking for or it will eliminate the need for the questions altogether.” When I was in high school, I was on a Bible quiz team. Believe it or not, I wasn’t any good at it. I may have known […]

Equipping The Many Voices By Adam Miller

“To be a part of the many voices, to truly be a minister of the gospel, you must take up the call to share Jesus Christ in your community.” When I became the president of Songtime two years ago, the ministry had a debt of $200,000. At the time, I thought that my role was […]

LTJA: An Example for Fathers By Israel Wayne

“It’s time for us men to grow up and take responsibility for our own families. There is absolutely no valid excuse to do otherwise.” I once read a survey where children were asked what they thought was the most important academic subject. It turned out that it was whatever subject that their father helped them […]

LTJA: An Example For Mothers By Adam Miller

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV). ” For those of you who had mothers who made sure you were in Church, read Bible stories to you, and taught you to pray before meals, you know the value […]

Food For Worship: Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs By Adam Miller

“The center of worship is a matter of raising up the position of God in our hearts and even when we feel that we have placed Him above all things, we must raise Him up even further. ” “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another […]

LTJA: The Central Figure In All of Scripture By Dr. Bryan Chapell

“There are only two possible human responses to messages that entirely focus on us doing better. One possible response is pride…The other…is despair.” What does it mean to see Jesus on every page of the Bible? The Gospel of Luke tells us that after Jesus rose from the dead and was walking with His disciples […]
