"From the time Jesus enters Jerusalem to celebrate Passover, key figures from Jesus’ inner circle will give the inside report on events as if they were happening now – the washing of the disciples’ feet, the last supper, Peter’s denial of Jesus, the crucifixion and the discovery of the empty tomb."
Eternity News has 20 double passes to give away to I Can Only Imagine Australia & New Zealand, the true story behind the beloved song (in cinemas today).

Bible Society Australia is currently recording the New Testament in one of Australia's oldest languages.
“Often they cannot change the outcome; however, they just want to know that God is with them."
"The Bible is a large book, and actually a library of books. It’s not a quick read; parts of it are not an easy read. It really is the only place to go to find out what Jesus taught. It rewards patient attention, and a willingness to put the various sections of it together in a meaningful way, rather than simply dip in for a casual visit. But Vible-bashers don’t even make casual visits. Instead, they assume they already get it." - Greg Clarke

“I have one message: that Jesus Christ came, he died on a cross, he rose again, and he asked us to repent of our sins and receive him by faith as Lord and Saviour, and if we do, we have forgiveness of all of our sins,” said Graham at his final Crusade in June 2005 at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in New York.

“Let me be honest, in the back of the mind the fear is always there. In the jungle, you have wolves and tigers – but the rabbit has to come out of his hole some...time," one Bible Society Area Leader describes what it is like to live in such an atmosphere - where churches have been bombed and torched, and Christians have been burnt alive.
Only this past December a church bombing brought injury and death to three of his family members. “Please pray for our family,” he asks, “and also for those who have lost their loved ones and those who have been injured. It is my prayer that peace and tolerance may prevail and permeate the atmosphere.”
What keeps this Area Leader where he is? It is the vital role God’s word plays in helping such an oppressed and marginalized church withstand the pressure. Despite the risks in this location, Bible Society sells tens of thousands of Bibles a year, and many more disappear from hospitals. They have also produced Bible resources for children, students, and the illiterate. “I could have left years ago,” he reflects, “but this work is a commitment, a calling. It’s not easy, but if we leave, what will happen? Christians are fearful and need support. And educated minds are seeking out the truth, so we must be here to serve them.”
Praise God for this man’s courage and commitment. And please pray for his and his team’s safety. To donate to support ministries like this, please visit www.biblesociety.org.au/strengthen #ChurchUnderPressure #Bibleverse

“When I became a Christian in 1962, everything changed, radically changed. I never wanted to drink again, I never had withdrawals, I never even had to go to any sort of counselling, but my life just so radically changed. One minute you’re lacing your sentences with four-letter words – swearing – and, like, the next day when I put my life in the hands of the Lord, I just couldn’t stand to hear people swearing, let alone ever wanting to drink again.
“So to me it was a miracle, a miracle that saved me all the way even today. I never, ever desire to go back into that old way of life.” - Ossie Cruse
The best thing that parents can do to raise kids who become spiritually healthy young adults is getting them reading the Bible regularly, according to a recent study.

The workplace can be an incredibly challenging place for Christians. Even Christian workplaces are places where we see sin clearly. Just think about the synonyms for work: labour, toil, hard yakka, slog, drudgery, grind, travail and exertion.
However, workplaces also represent enormous opportunities for Christians... https://www.eternitynews.com.au/…/11-impossible-people-yo…/… #JesusAllAboutLife
