Dr. Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of the 11,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, was a guest recently on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Praise the Lord talk and ministry show, where he talked about how we can be assured of our salvation. “Over and over the Bible emphasizes to us the importance of believing,” Pastor Jeffress told the TBN audience. “In Acts 16 the Philippian jailer asked Paul, ”What must I do to be saved?’ and Paul said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.’ In John 11:25 Jesus declares: ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whosoever believes in Me … shall live.’”
He added that John 3:16 says that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
“You hear it over and over again,” Pastor Jeffress said: “believing is crucial — but what does it mean to believe?”

Lacey Sturm of the Christian rock group Flyleaf has traveled the world telling about hope and healing through Jesus. But on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Praise the Lord program, Lacey spoke to TBN host Kirk Cameron about how God first had to meet her in her pain and hopelessness. Growing up without a father, Lacey said that as a young girl she experienced a deep personal tragedy that caused her to reject a belief in God, and turned her on a path of depression and thoughts of suicide.
But one day, after she had finally decided to end her life, she ended up in church, where God miraculously met her and changed her life.
Speaking to those in the TBN audience who may have been contemplating suicide, Lacey told them what God taught her: “Life is a gift and it is short. We only have a moment to do something good with what God has given us in this life…. God created you with a purpose. He has a plan for your life. There is something you’re meant to do with your DNA and your fingerprints, that only you can do. And I pray that you would fulfill your highest calling and that you wouldn’t settle for less, and that you would be able to push through and find the glory on the other side.”

Randy LaHaye’s grandfather, Tim LaHaye, is part of the creative force behind “Left Behind,” the big screen motion picture starring Nicholas Cage that is taking the nation by storm.
Randy, who heads up Tim LaHaye Productions, was a recent guest on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Praise the Lord ministry and talk show, where he recalled the private screening his family attended shortly before the movie debuted nationwide.
“I remember one point in the film,” recalled Randy of the screening, “my grandmother was weeping during a very special scene.
“That was so touching to see because I think she was weeping for multiple reasons,” he told the TBN audience. “One reason was for the scene itself, but also because of the realization that this incredible, powerful tool that God had given my grandfather, was now a major motion picture” that would touch millions with the gospel message.
Watch this “inside look” at a movie that is impacting audiences nationwide.
Bayless Conley, popular pastor and ministry partner on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, was seriously injured in a boating accident in early 2014. Recently on TBN’s Praise the Lord show, he spoke to TBN hosts Matthew Crouch and Laurie Crouch about the experience, and some the truths he has learned from suffering through the accident.
“Why bad things happen to God’s people is a common question many people have,” he told Matt and Laurie Crouch. “The good thing is that I don’t have to have a theology that says that I have to have all the answers before I believe God is good,” he explained. “I believe He is good even when I don’t understand.”
He added that “there are a few things we can say. I don’t blame God, and I don’t believe that God causes bad things to happen to people, like the accident I suffered through. The truth is, we live in a fallen world. Everything does not operate the way God intended. That’s the reason He is going to make a new heaven and earth, and there is not going to be accidents, sickness, sorrow, and crisis.”
In this world here and now, “we have an adversary, the devil, and the Bible says that he walks around as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour,” he continued. “We also have human error that factors in. You can point to all of these things, but the truth remains that God does care, and that is why He sent Jesus.”
