Summary: These five-minute programs feature Chuck Swindoll's best stories. You'll hear his loudest laughs, his funniest experiences, and his famous catch phrases.
Deuteronomy 4:39-40 We all have a desire to be important. But life isn’t about satisfying our desires. It’s about leaving a legacy of a well-lived life. And God has made it plain how to do that.
John 8:32 Truth gives stability to your faith, strengthens you when you’re tested, enables you to handle the Bible accurately, equips you to detect and confront error, allows you to live with confidence, and releases you from all fears and superstitions. Truth sets you free.
1 Timothy 3:2-4 Chuck’s grandfather modelled grace during a disastrous driving lesson. His words made a lasting impression on Chuck who has taught about God’s grace for almost 50 years. It’s a good reminder that our words matter.
Proverbs 22:3 We don’t have to go very far to find danger. The Bible warns about danger and teaches us how to avoid it. When we listen to these warnings we don’t become victims who end up paying the consequences.
Genesis 1:27 Outward appearance isn’t always a true reflection of who a person really is. Each of us is unique and complex—and created in God’s image.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 The words, “I love you” make an incredible impact, especially when they’re authentic. There’s nothing shallow about authentic love. Real love has staying power. It always opts for working through. It’s resilient.
Ephesians 4:11-14 The road to maturity is often long and difficult, but the rewards are well worth the journey, as you become a person who has a heart for both God and mankind.
1 John 1:9 Isn’t it great when someone says, “I forgive you”…just like that? Without pleading or begging for mercy, we’re simply forgiven. That’s probably one of the best feelings in the world.
Hebrews 9:22 Washing up for dinner is something we all learn as children. But in spiritual terms, there’s a banquet you’re invited to, which requires more than just soap and water—it takes blood.
2 Corinthians 12:10 Strength in weakness—sounds like an oxymoron. However, when you are weak it is possible to be strong, just as Paul says in 2 Corinthians.
Isaiah 50:10 Sometimes we’d like to know the future, but God created us to live one moment at a time. And He gives us the light we need for each step we take—it’s when we go ahead of God we flounder.
Isaiah 1:18 God’s Word says that there will be a day of judgement. But as Christians that’s not something that we need to fear. When we placed out trust in Christ our guilt was removed, now and for eternity.
Romans 10:9-10 It’s hard to imagine what heaven will be like. But the Bible does say it’s a real place and there’s nothing you can do to earn your place there. You just need to accept God’s free gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 4:1 If you’ve ever been in that muddy hole called the Slough of Despond, you can relate to Christian in The Pilgrim’s Progress. Despondency, or the pits, is really pessimism. It’s a gloomy, negative attitude, which often comes when we rely on ourselves instead of God. Whenever negative thoughts come knocking, don’t open the door. Instead, turn your thoughts to God.
Matthew 6:30-34 Life is not static; things are constantly changing. Have you ever stopped to thank God for not telling you the future? He dispenses life one day at a time and that’s how He wants us to live—trusting Him for each moment of every day.
