God Wants the Best Career for You, So Trust in His Plan - Billy Graham

God wants what is best for you, both in your personal and professional life, the Rev. Billy Graham writes.
Graham, founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote in a recent post for the Kansas City Star that because God cares about our future, we should put our trust in Him that things will work out according to His plan.
"The most important advice I can give you is to seek God's will for your future. God knows all about you, and he made you into the person you are. He knows your gifts and abilities, and he also knows your limitations. Why not seek his plan for your life?" Graham writes.
It is especially important to trust in God's plan for the future because he loves all of His children and wants the best for each of them.
"God loves you, and because he loves you, you can trust your life and your future in his hands," the evangelical leader writes.
To illustrate God's desire for us to have the best, Graham points to Proverbs 3:5-…

Pope Francis Joins Lecrae, Hillsong at Historic 1 Million-Strong 'Together 2016' DC Event

Evangelical leaders are calling on 1 million Christians to gather together in the nation's capital next month for prayer and worship at a historic event called "Together 2016." Inspired by Nick Hall, the founder of PULSE, a prayer and evangelism movement to empower the church and awaken the culture to Jesus, Americans are being urged to unite on the National Mall on July 16 to offer prayer that God will change the hearts of a divided America. Adding his name to the lineup of pomenant guest speakers and musicians is Pope Francis, who will deliver a video message addressing the crowd. "We are humbled and honored by his involvement and are eager to share his message with the crowd that gathers at Together 2016," Hall said in a statement to The Christian Post, reacting to the announcement that the pope has added his name to the list of speakers. "That His Holiness would choose to speak into this historic day is a testament to the urgency and the…

'Why Doesn't God Tell You Why Something Happens?' - Pastor Rick Warren

Christians who are in constant pursuit of answers from God to explain why things happen in life lack contentment and become increasingly frustrated when their questions go unanswered, says Pastor Rick Warren.
God doesn't tell us why things have happened in our life because "he's testing [us]," Warren, senior pastor of Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, reveals in his Daily Hope devotional on June 8. "He's testing to see if you will let go of control and learn to be content, whether he explains it or not."
Warren adds that even if God did offer an explanation, people likely wouldn't understand it, because His divine plan is beyond our ability to comprehend. Additionally, knowing the reason why doesn't ease the pain.

"When God is silent in your life, you're going through a test. When you don't hear God and he feels like a million miles away, that is a test! The teacher is always silent when the students take a…

New 'Ben-Hur' Movie Trailer Features Jesus Appearance

The first trailer of the major Paramount Pictures/MGM motion picture remake of "Ben-Hur" was released this Wednesday. Along with exciting scenes of rivalry and competition, the studio included a glimpse of Jesus Christ on the cross.
The trailer journeys from Ben-Hur's days of slavery, to his shipwreck, to the epic race between the rival brothers. In the midst of the violent action-packed compilation, Jesus Christ is seen on the cross.

Hitting theaters nationwide on August 12, "Ben-Hur" is set to include a new and improved chariot race for the ages. With Christian themes of justice, liberty and radical forgiveness, it tells the classic story of Judah Ben–Hur.
Played by Jack Huston, Ben-Hur is a prince who was falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. As a result he was stripped of his title and separated from his family and the woman he loves (Nazanin Boniadi). He was eventually forced i…

If I Had One More Sermon to Preach, This Is What I'll Say - Joyce Meyer

If she had one more message to preach about, it would be to encourage Christians to "love, love, and then love some more," inspirational Christian speaker Joyce Meyer says.
During a recent guest sermon at Life.Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Meyer explained that love is the most important thing Jesus said we have to do for ourselves, for others, and for Him.
Meyer, founder of Joyce Meyer Ministries, says that a turning point in her life was learning that it is impossible to be both selfish and happy, saying that although she didn't have financial stresses and had a good husband and children, she was unable to be happy because she was too self-involved.
Then, God spoke to her, telling her "you're not happy because you're selfish."
"It's just not possible to have yourself on your mind all the time and be happy," Meyer says.
She points specifically to John 13:35, which calls on Christians to show their faith to others through …

Nigeria: Pastor’s Wife Stabbed to Death for Insulting Muhammad

Attackers stabbed to death the wife of a Nigerian pastor last week after she reportedly insulted the Muslim prophet Muhammad. According to The Christian Post, Bridget Abahime, 74, was followed and killed at a market in Kano. Nigerian police have said that they have arrested two suspects in the murder. "This barbarism must stop now," said the Christian Association of Nigeria’s spokesman, the Rev. John Hayab.  Also, the Muslim Rights Concern said the violence was “preposterous, barbaric and unIslamic." Said Nigeria’s Muslim President Mohammadu Buhari: “"Let us ensure that we keep the peace, as justice will be done. Let us learn to respect each other's faith, so that we can know each other and live together in peace." Christian pastors in the area have experienced much of the violence. In April, a church official was kidnapped and killed for preaching to Muslims. But churches are not the only places being targeted.  Extremists have killed abou…

Hindu Extremists Torture 29 Christians for Their Faith

Hindu extremists in India reportedly beat and tortured 29 Christians when they refused to convert to Hinduism. The Christian Post reports that the Hindu extremists attempted to convert the Christians to Hinduism, but when they refused, the extremists beat them and drove them out of their homes. According to Christian watchdog group Open Doors, “The villagers accused them saying – because of you our god and goddess are fleeing from our village. When they refused to forsake Christ they began to beat them." "RSS activists [Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the Hindu ultra-nationalist paramilitary group ed], the BJP and Bajrang Dal [youth wing of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, VHP] led by former district chief, threw stones at members of the community, attacked our women and broke the church lamps," added pastor Emmanuel Ariel. The number of Christians has been growing in India, but persecution of Christians has been growing as well. Human rights groups have been cal…
