Join our mailing listMaybe you're here tonight, and you think God ought not to be happy with the material that is before Him. Maybe you feel misshapen, weather-beaten by the elements of life - but here's the truth of what God's revelation in the Bible says: you are too expensive to dispose of. God values you! We're not overlooking your sin, we're not ignoring our own fallenness in the holy eyes of the God of heaven, but the fact of the matter is: God values you, even if you don't value yourself! What you may not see in your own personhood, or for that matter what others may not recognise in you, God sees.

I know that all of you, if you're honest, have been on the search for identity. If you could imagine your life as a block of marble, what do you see? What do you see when you look at yourself or consider your own life? Do you see potential or do you see a hopeless project? I think I'm right in saying - it has always been the case, but particularly in our modern era - there is an identity crisis. People are asking: 'Who am I? Why am I here? What is the purpose of my existence?'. Many young people in particular are growing up not knowing who they are, or who they are meant to be. You can Google it if you like, and you'll be even more confused by the end of it - all the answers that illustrate the confusion. This modern generation doesn't understand who they are or who they are meant to be. There are so many conflicting voices telling us who we should be and who we should be like. Take the media for instance, whether it's the advertisements or pop culture, or even religion: we're being told how we ought to conform, how we ought to measure up. That's the reason why there is such a great identity confusion. So let me ask you again: who do you think you are? [Listen or read more...]

"What Are You Afraid Of?" - Facing Down Your Fears With Faith
by Dr. David Jeremiah
"What Are You Afraid Of?" - Facing Down Your Fears With Faith, by David Jeremiah
For many people, worry, anxiety, and fear are constant companions: fear of death, fear of danger, fear of disease. And too often, these fears are crippling, keeping us from the life God has called us to live.

But it doesn’t have to be that way, says Dr. David Jeremiah. As Christians, we have been given all we need in order to face down even the most frightening, unexpected, and overwhelming obstacles in life.

In his new book, What Are You Afraid Of?, Dr. Jeremiah explores the top ten fears that are holding so many of us back from the life God has called us to live and shares the supernatural secrets for facing down these fears with faith. Subjects covered include: the fear of natural calamity, the fear of serious illness, the fear of financial collapse, the fear of failure, the fear of being alone, the fear of rejection, the fear of sudden trouble, the fear of mental breakdown, the fear of dying, and the fear of God.

Available to order from Amazon for Kindle (US and UK) or as a Paperback (US and UK) - 160 pages
A free PDF preview of the first chapter is also available from the publisher.
A Spanish edition is also available.
