Growth and Balance
July 1, 1991
Author: Moishe Rosen

I think that being a general missionary with Jews for Jesus is more fun than being the executive director! Much of my work as the founder and chief executive officer of Jews for Jesus is desk work. It entails keeping everything connected so that our energy and resources keep flowing in the direction of evangelism….

Bumble Bees and Bumbling
Author: Glenn Harris

I knew something was wrong the minute I walked in. My wife Alexandra, on whom I can always count for a cheerful smile and a hug when I come home, met me with a frightened Oh, Glenn, you’ve got to come take care of this!” “This” was a big bumble bee that had flown in…

Heaven, Our Precious Inheritance
Author: Joshua Moss

1 Peter 1:4 says that we who belong to Christ have an inheritance that is incorruptible and undefiled, and that does not fade away, reserved for us in heaven. What is this precious inheritance? 1 Corinthians 2:9 says, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things…
