Sermon  – Clear the Stage

Gary Wilkerson

Pastor of Springs Church and President of World Challenge There are times in the life of a Christian when we need to bring Christ and His cross back to the forefront. Pastor Gary Wilkerson exhorts the church to clear the stage of worship that is more about image and entertainment than it is about awe and reverence for God. It’s time to clear the stage of pastors who merely give pep talks and spend very little time in prayerful preparation. We must clear our own hearts of lukewarmness and heaping to ourselves teaching that tickles our ears. Church, let’s clear the stage and put Jesus first!

Newsletter –  Jesus Wept

David Wilkerson

David Wilkerson – President of World Challenge“Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany” (John 11:1). Most Christians know the story of Lazarus. He lived with his two sisters, Mary and Martha, in the town of Bethany. Their home was a favorite resting place for Jesus. Christ knew that this close-knit family loved him, and he loved them dearly in return. He even made their home his spiritual retreat. It was an oasis of quiet for him away from the pressing crowds.

The rural village of Srah Keo is a rarity in Cambodia: It’s thriving in the midst of drought. Most homes in this historically poor village boast a bountiful vegetable garden. They’re also ringed by mango trees bearing luscious fruit. And the children, once malnourished, are healthier and happier than ever.

A New Way of Orphan Care

Gary Wilkerson

Losing their parents is tragic enough. But orphans then face a second trauma. They’re taken to an unfamiliar place — an orphanage — where they don’t know anyone. Often they’re cared for by workers whose best efforts are stretched thin by overwhelming needs.

Daily Devotional


by David Wilkerson | April 28, 2015

The book of Nehemiah offers a vivid picture of what happens to the church in times of ruin and apostasy. When Nehemiah and 43,000 other Jewish patriots returned to Jerusalem, they found the city lying in total ruin. The walls were torn down and the gates removed, so the inhabitants had no protection from their enemies . . . and a whole parade of antagonists plundered the city as they pleased.

These enemies had been given total dominion because of Israel’s backsliding and disobedience to God’s Word. Nehemiah wrote, “Because of our sins: also they [our enemies] have dominion over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress” (Nehemiah 9:37).

Jerusalem here is a type of the church of Jesus Christ today. Like the Israelites, many Christians are under sin’s dominion and the iniquity in God’s house has brought on distress and bondage, spreading poison throughout the Body of Christ.
