// Kenneth W. Hagin

Have you noticed that in the past several years some people have tried to make Christmas just another holiday? They want us to say "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings" instead of "Merry Christmas." And we're to have "holiday" trees and lights, instead of Christmas trees and Christmas lights. The world wants to completely remove Christ from Christmas.


Avoiding The Trap of Offense


// Kenneth W. Hagin

Opportunities to give in to offense present themselves to everyone at one time or another. No one is exempt. We all must continually guard our hearts against the temptation to become offended and harbor grudges and other negative emotions.


The Best Gift

What's the greatest gift you ever received at Christmas? For me, it's a toss-up between a racecar track I got when I was 11 or 12 years old and a Lionel train set. I wish you could have seen the expression on my face when I got these things! I was so excited.


Call Upon the Lord

LH Seed 150

//Lynette Hagin

"The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles."
—Psalm 34:17 (NKJV)

It's so wonderful to be able to call upon the Lord in prayer! It's so great to be able to come boldly into His presence! There's nothing like being in the presence of the Lord—praising Him, worshipping Him, and seeking His face. Sometimes we don't find out how desperately we need God's peace until we get into His presence!


Reaching The Forgotten


Special Report: Missions

Sharing Jesus in the Amazon Jungle: Josie Rogers

IMAGINE HAVING four children and not being able to tell any of them about the Jesus you serve. Deep in the Amazon jungle, this was the stark reality for one woman. We'll call her Anna.

A member of the Tikuna tribe, an indigenous people, Anna had been born again when missionaries came to her village. But when she married, her husband forbade her to practice Christianity or tell their children about it.
