Jeremiah 17:7-8: "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her ROOTS BY THE RIVER, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."

Meditations for Muslims: If there were No Resurrection of the Dead
But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 (NIV)

This is an update from my son Douglas on my health and the plans for continuing my literature publishing ministry with Community Christian Ministries. If you would like to talk to me more about this or just for fellowship, you can reach me at (208) 882-4383 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is Douglas Wilson, and I am writing you with an update about my father’s health, and about our plans for the future of his ministry. I serve on CCM’s executive committee, and we recently made some important decisions in this regard, and so I wanted to take this opportunity to pass this information on to you.
As most of you know, Jim Wilson is now on hospice care. He is getting progressively weaker, but is still able to live at home, where he continues to counsel and minister to others. We don’t know when he will go to be with the Lord—it could be any time, and it could be a while yet. My wife and I have been living with him the last nine months, and are happy to report that he is a …
Recently, my granddaughter, Rachel and her husband Luke visited the Billy Graham Museum in Wheaton, Illinois. The museum is about much more than just Billy Graham. They had much correspondence of my wife’s correspondence from her time as a missionary. This is one of her ministry newsletters. Everyone mentioned has long ago died. These were written when I had seriously entered her life. At this date, Bessie knew she was going to marry me.
Ask of Me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

You have not been overburdened with prayer letters from me have you? I see my last one is dated January 22nd and it was only the seventh letter written in my two and a half years in Japan.
When I last wrote I asked for prayer for the Bible Training School which was to open in April. Before the war we had a well-equipped school that was completely destroyed durin…
You said, "When a Christian sins, God still likes him as well as loves him."
If by “like” you mean “is pleased with,” then no. However, I do not think like means “is pleased with.” I do not use the word like. God does not use the word. Even if it meant “is pleased with,” the answer is definitely not yes. Finally, then, brothers, we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more. (1 Thess. 4:1)
So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. (2 Cor. 5:9)There is only one type of forgiveness. God forgives our sin when we receive Christ. He forgives the sins that we commit after we receive Christ when we confess them. He already paid for them.
You also said, “Many Christians express the view that God loves them but does not like them; that is, that God has their best interest in His heart, but He is displeased on a day-to-day basis because …
