When we hear the word “pledge,” perhaps we think of the pledge of allegiance to the American flag. Or maybe a Scout pledge from childhood comes to mind. But did you know that Jehovah God also made a pledge, and he made it to us as believers? Today Dr. Don Wilton continues his message series Shatterproof and teaches about a God who desires a personal relationship which each of us and guarantees eternal life with Him to each person who confesses Jesus as Lord. This hope is an anchor for our lives because God long ago made a pledge, not only to Abraham but to believers today. Because of God’s pledge those who believe have hope and can all stand firm on every promise of God.

God's Promise to the Slow of Heart
April 1, 2018 • Dr. Don Wilton
After Jesus' resurrection, he appeared to a number of his followers, including two on the road to Emmaus. As they walked, they talked about the events surrounding Jesus' crucifixion. Suddenly, Jesus appeared and walked with the, but they didn't recognize him. It's often the same in our lives. Jesus is right there with us in joy and sorrow, in pain, disillusionment, and struggles, yet we are slow to recognize and benefit from his presence. When the Emmaus Road travelers reached their destination, they in invited Jesus to join them for a meal. As they engaged in this everyday event, they suddenly recognized Jesus. He is still with us today, in the fabric of our daily lives. Open your eyes. Recognize his presence and accept His saving power. Don't allow distractions and procrastination to slow you down.
The Promise of a Personal Testimony
March 4, 2018 • Dr. Don Wilton
Many don't share their personal testimony of salvation through Jesus Christ because they feel their experience isn't dramatic and won't be effective. But ever testimony is unique and can have an impact. You don't have to be a great evangelist like Billy Graham or have a Damascus Road experience like the apostle Paul to share your faith with others. Your testimony is powerful, not because of how effectively you tell it, but because of the way God uses it to draw others by the power of the Holy Spirit. All you have to do is be prepared and obedient when the opportunity arises and the Spirit prompts.
