Sharing God’s Word in Innovative Ways

Sharing God's Word in ways that make sense to people in their native cultures. Many people groups prefer learning through audio, and using technology such as mobile phones can enable someone to hear God's Word for the first time! Discover the other ways we are sharing God's Word with the world and how you can join us today!

At the John Ankerberg Show, we believe Jesus taught us what it means to GO and preach the Gospel. One of most compelling things about Jesus is how He modeled outreach by meeting people where they are. We meet people where they are through television, radio, streaming media, online resources and our partnerships with other ministries.

Daily Journey: July 22nd

I Kings 8:1-66; Acts 21:1-14

Thought from Today’s Old Testament Passage: [Solomon’s] prayer itself was very long, and perhaps much longer than is here recorded. At the throne of grace we have liberty of speech, and should use our liberty. It is not making long prayers, but making them for a pretence, that Christ condemns. In this excellent prayer Solomon does, as we should in every prayer, give glory to God. This he begins with, as the most proper act of adoration. He addresses himself to God as the Lord God of Israel, a God in covenant with them and, (1.) He gives him the praise of what he is, in general, the best of beings in himself ("There is no God like thee, none of the powers in heaven or earth to be compared with thee"), and the best of masters to his people: "Who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants; not only as good as thy word in keeping covenant, but better than thy word in keeping mercy, doing that for them of which thou hast not given them an express promise, provided they walk before thee with all their heart, are zealous for thee, with an eye to thee." (2.) He gives him thanks for what he had done, in particular, for his family (v. 24): "Thou hast kept with thy servant David, as with thy other servants, that which thou promisedst him." The promise was a great favour to him, his support and joy, and now performance is the crown of it: Thou hast fulfilled it, as it is this day. Fresh experiences of the truth of God’s promises call for enlarged praises…. Matthew Henry, Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Bible (Peabody MA: Hendrickson Publishers), 1997
