How you can help change lives for eternity

October 20

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

- James 1:27

Several years ago, some members at our church came across a little boy who didn’t have a mother or father. He was in need of a home and really didn’t have anywhere to go. But there was a wonderful couple who attended our church who got it in their hearts to receive this little boy into their home.

So after praying about it, the couple took this little 6-year-old boy in. He had a rough upbringing. His parents were alcoholics, and he had been raised by a grandmother who then passed away. So they faced many challenges. But they loved him with the love of Christ and that little boy became their son.

As the people of God, we’re called to love those who are the downtrodden of our society. This includes the homeless, the family-less, and the penny-less. And while many times, these people can be overlooked as we go about our daily lives, it’s crucial the church be at the forefront of caring for them.

So whether it’s adoption, working at a homeless shelter, or simply taking time out of your day to love someone who really needs it, find a way to help those in the most need. Show them the love of Christ, and you may just change a life for eternity!

SHOW THE DOWNTRODDEN THE LOVE OF CHRIST, AND HELP CHANGE LIVES FOR ETERNITY!

About PowerPoint

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church — a nearly 37,000-member church with three campuses in the Dallas and North Texas region. Through PowerPoint Ministries, Dr. Graham offers practical, biblical steps on how to tap into God's power for successful Christian living.

About Jack Graham

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Dr. Jack Graham in Plano, Texas. Dr. Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with more than 33,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a Difference, Lessons from the Heart, A Hope and a Future, Life According to Jesus, Are you Fit for Life? and Powering Up. Courageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
