A believer should refrain from marrying a nonbeliever. The principle Paul mentions in 2 Corinthians 6:14 affirms this conclusion. But how should a believer respond who is already married to a nonbeliever? Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller to consider what 1 Corinthians 7:12-16 and 1 Peter 3:1-7 teach about this important question.
Did you know that God expects you to use money and other material resources to make friendships that last for eternity? That’s what Jesus taught in Luke 16:1-13.

Discover how this story teaches you to be a more effective witness for the gospel.
If you aspire to be an effective witness for Christ (and you should), then you must aspire to some other things as well. That’s what Paul said to the church at Thessalonica (1 Thess 4:11-12).

Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller to consider three important goals that you as a believer aspire to achieve and these help you to become a more effective witness for Christ.
When you explain the gospel message to a nonbeliever, he will consider not only the content of your message, but the quality of your life as well. That’s why it is important for a believer not only to explain the gospel well, but to live well also.
