Be a Never-Surrender Christian
We will have no truce or parley with you or the grisly gang who work your wicked will. You do your worst—and we will do our best!
Winston Churchill’s stately British voice crackled through the radio. I was 7 years old when I sat alongside my parents in 1941, listening to that great leader summon courage, character, and commitment with a fervor few have matched. I’ll never forget his immortal words nor the fear that coursed through me as my father said, “Well, at least we’re not alone.”
A few months later, Churchill proclaimed to the boys at Harrow School: “These are not dark days; they are great days . . . And we must all thank God that we have been allowed, each of us according to our stations, to play a part . . .”
Seventy-five years have passed since troops finally stormed that beach at Normandy. Yet we’re still in the thick of hard times, aren’t we?
Oh, the war is different. The United States is fighting an enemy named terror rather than a man and his regime. But at the root, it’s the same fight believers have been fighting since biblical times, one each of us faces every day: the war against evil.
But we can give thanks! Without trials, we would never develop character—the moral, ethical, and spiritual undergirding that rests on truth, reinforces a life in stressful times, and resists all temptations to compromise or surrender. Character gives us the determination to be never-surrender Christians.
I promise you: we will never surrender! We are committed to being here for you, no matter what, equipping you and others like you to be strong and determined men and women of biblical character in these hard days. Let’s turn these dark days into our greatest days.
Let Satan do his worst—as we do our best!
Remaining steadfast and immovable with you in Christ,

Insight for Living
Read through the Bible Chronologically in One Year
You are invited to have a personal relationship with God, your Creator!
To have a personal relationship with God, you must become a follower of Jesus.
There is no other way.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me".
"I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture".
This decision must be a personal commitment from the heart. No one else can decide for you.
If you choose to believe in Jesus, you will be eternally blessed.
If you choose not to believe in Jesus, you will be eternally separated from God.
Therefore, this will be the most important decision you will make in this life.
This is the way to become a child of God and experience His love and blessings:
Know that God loves you and desires to have a personal relationship with you.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son...
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
(I John 3:1)
Admit that you have sinned against God and are separated from Him.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away...
there is no one who does good,not even one.
But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Believe, Repent, and Receive Jesus Christ as Savior.
He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household."
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out,
that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you,
in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.
And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—
for all whom the Lord our God will call."
But as many as received Him to them He gave the right to become children of God.
Pray this prayer of commitment:
Lord Jesus, I know that you love me.
I admit that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.
I choose to believe that You died to forgive me and I repent of my sin.
Right now, I receive you as my Savior and Lord.
I choose to follow you for the rest of my life.
Thank you for hearing my prayer and giving me eternal life today.
Declare your faith and let others know you have decided to follow Jesus.
If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord",
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified,
and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
Trusting Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord is the most important thing you will ever do.
