In this issue, we are delving into God’s Word to make known Jesus Christ—who he is, how he accomplished the Father’s will, and what he accomplished for us so that we can make him known to others. Barbara Oeding, in her article, shares four practical keys to “Living One Day at a Time with Peace and Victory in Our Families.” In “Spiritual Goals: Focused on the Target,” Rev. Martin Carroll shows how to get clear on our spiritual goals, apply proven principles from the Word, and see our goals come to pass.

In “Speaking the Truth in Love, We Grow Up,” Michael Harte gives us a closer look at Ephesians 4:15 to see the important practice of speaking the truth in love and the benefits of growing to be more like Christ. Chris Shroyer presents “Godly Guidance for Media Communications” in the Witnesses in Our Occupations department. As sons of God, we have the highest standards—God’s Word and His love—to guide us in producing communications that lift others to a higher level.

What Does the Word Say? shows that “Comparing Ourselves to Others” is not wise; God has a better way for us to see ourselves! In the Five Basics for Building Faithfulness series, Jacob Prewett reveals benefits of “Practicing Principles of Prosperity.” We see that by faithfully practicing principles of prosperity, such as giving and receiving, and financial stewardship, we honor and glorify God and can enjoy His abundance. The Prevailing Word Report focuses on the in-residence Way Corps Parent Weekend, where the goal was to give the parents a look at The Way Corps training program and the fruit produced by the trainees because of the Word they live.

In Matthew 5:14 and 16, Jesus Christ taught his followers, “Ye are the light of the world….Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” An unlit candle does nothing. However, when it is lit, it produces action—the flame flickers, the wax melts, the smoke rises, and the darkness is illuminated. Likewise, when our “flames are lit,” we produce action—we shine the light by making known Jesus Christ. Just as a candle can light our way in the dark, we can shine the light for others, leading them out of darkness and helping them become lights of the world!
