Reflections From My Six-Year-Old on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

In Op-Eds by Tracy Thomas

Today, as we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., let’s pray for that justice to come. Let’s give thanks to God for the work He has done and is doing in our nation. Let’s ask Him to bring forth the healing, reconciliation, and peace that Dr. King envisioned, lived, and died to inspire. Let’s ask the Lord to root out the racism hiding in our own hearts and help us show our children how to display His love for all people.

In Op-Eds by Mike Kelly

LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Through the praise of children and infants                   you have established a stronghold against your enemies,                   to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens,                   the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,                   which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them,                   human beings that you care for them?

Remember the “Do Not Fear” of God

In Op-Eds by Esteban Fernandez

Every time we start a new year, we say that there are 365 new opportunities to do good things, to carry out kindness and to show mercy to others.

In Bible by Stephen Cave

At this time of year, lots of people are making New Year’s resolutions. I bet you can guess what the most popular resolution is. That’s right: losing weight/getting in shape.

“Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.” – Psalm 66:16, NIV At Biblica, we have the awesome privilege of stewarding God’s Word – translating it into the world’s major languages, providing it for those who don’t have access, and encouraging people to read and engage with it so their lives can be transformed by Christ.

This Ministry is Bringing Healthcare and God’s Word to Africa

In Ministry by Biblica Staff

When Peter Cameron Scott had the idea of taking the gospel into the interior of “the dark continent,” people thought he was crazy. Churches had been established along the coastline but back in the late 1800s, no one was interested in going into the great unknown of the African jungle. In his book, Garden of Miracles, Kenneth Richardson chronicles Scott’s courageous journey inland, the first step in founding what would eventually become Africa Inland Mission. One harrowing tale described how …
