Philip De Courcy Imparts Words to Live by in His Interview with Barbara Follis

By Julianna Keck

Aug. 25, 2017

How does a reluctant teenager who recognizes his need to get saved—but loves his sin more— become a pastor willing to lay down his life to preach the Gospel? This past weekend on Words to Live By, Barbara Follis interviewed special guest, Pastor Philip De Courcy of Know The Truth. It’s always exciting when two or more of our ministry partners collaborate in their radio efforts, and this excellent interview is certainly no exception! As always, Barbara gets right to the heart of the matter, inviting Philip to share how a message from the Scriptures transformed his life and gave him words to live by. You’ll hear Philip narrate his personal story of redemption, recounting how growing up amidst religious violence in war-torn Northern Ireland ... Read More

By Julianna Keck

Aug. 14, 2017

Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. Hebrews 13:13 Every day, men and women tuning into The Voice of the Martyrs daily and weekend radio programs are exposed to moving testimonies of brave believers who are on the frontlines, suffering for the sake of the Gospel. But the mission of VOM Radio is more than simply providing a voice to the persecuted church … it’s equipping the entire Christ-following community with ways to help and support their brothers and sisters around the world. To this end, The Voice of the Martyrs, provides radio listeners with numerous outlets in which they can get involved. The most common request from persecuted Christians ... Read More

Refresh Your Soul In Psalms This Summer

By Julianna Keck

Aug. 11, 2017

The Book of Psalms contains timeless songs of praise, lament, and thanksgiving that are as relevant today as they were when they were written thousands of years ago. These raw expressions of dependence on God make for excellent prayers. Over the span of the past few months, Dr. Bryan Chapell of Unlimited Grace Ministries has been preaching his way through Psalms chapters 1 through 132 in his hit series, Summer Psalms. Airing through August 24, Unlimited Grace listeners are learning about the eternal legacy they’re leaving, what it means to be truly prosperous and blessed, how to be lifted above their trials by praising God, and how God can—and does—deliver people from the worst difficulties that life can throw their way.

Hear J.D. Greear on Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk

By Julianna Keck

Aug. 3, 2017

What does Samson have in common with me? Pastor J.D. Greear of Summit Life Ministries suggests there may be a lot more similarities than you’re prone to think. While it’s easy to box in Samson’s life as a Sunday School story that holds no lasting significance in our daily lives, J.D. dissects and presents the Judges narrative in a way many of us have never before been exposed to. “Lessons from the Life of Sampson,” a sermon originally delivered at the 2016 Ignite Men’s Conference, so moved the hearts of the attendees at Liberty University that Dr. James Dobson chose to feature J.D.’s message on his radio broadcast, Family Talk, this past July 21, 2017. Pastor J.D. opens the sermon by stating: “Sampson’s journey is ... Read More

Discover the Word Will Put Your Concept of Temptation on Trial

By Jessie Jolliff

Aug. 1, 2017

This week, Discover the Word hosts, Elisa Morgan, Bill Crowder and Mart DeHaan are bringing the biblical account of The Temptation of Jesus to the table for a fascinating examination of the 40 days He spent in the wilderness being tempted by Satan. Temptation is oft envisioned as something that sneaks up on Christians and catches us in a moment of weakness. The account found in Luke 4, however, is quite contrary to that assumption. Jesus was not surprised or tested in a moment of weakness. Rather, He was “led by the Spirit” into the wilderness to face the Enemy. Jesus, having just been baptized, was declared “full of the Holy Spirit” … and then was led into temptation in the desert. Coincidence? With the ... Read More
