Ep.492: What Fruit Does Your Spirit Yield? (Part I)
Applying “the fruit of the spirit” personally
Theme Scripture: Galatians 5:22-23
It is a common practice to look at peoples lives and see the fruit of their labors. Often times we will not want to follow someone’s lead until we have seen proof of their leadership, or we will not want to implement a process until we see that it has been fruitful before. Now, what about the fruit of our spirit – our influence? Do we ever look at and assess its impact? The Bible tells us what the fruit of God’s influence is – the question we want to ask is this; is the fruit of our spirit growing toward the fruit of God’s spirit? Stay with us this morning as we look at the fruit of our influence – is it ripe and ready or is it rotten and repulsive?
Ep.491: What Makes a Relationship Work?
Relationships and Marriage in the 21st Century
Theme Scripture: Mark 10:8-9
Just a few days ago, we went through another American ritual – for some it may have been the giving of flowers, candy, cards or dinners out; for others it may have been manicures or spa dates and for others it may have been a phone call or time together… Whatever the case, it was all for the cause of love. Love, that gripping, sweet and sometimes elusive emotion. Love, that emotion that drives us to do great things, silly things, uncharacteristic things and even dumb things… Love, the one thing we seemingly all want and for some reason most have a hard time finding. On this program, we will look at love and relationships and why some work and others don’t.
Ep.490: What Gives You Hope?
How our hope changes us
Theme Scripture: Romans 8:20
Where there is life, there is hope. Hope springs eternal. Hope for the best. When someone is hopeful, we have confidence and tend to look at things from a big picture perspective. When someone is hopeless, we are saddened and tend to look at things in the short term. These thoughts remind us just how vital hope is to our lives. Well, just what is hope? How does it work? On this program we look at hope, how it works and how it can more fully work in our lives. Stay with us as we seek to find out the secrets of hope and apply them. What gives you hope?
Ep.489: Should Christians be Speaking in Tongues?
Clarifying the purpose of “tongues” in the N.T.
Theme Scripture: Acts 2:6
The Bible is full of miracles. It is full of events that will get your attention and make you think. Speaking in tongues is one of those things that we see in the Bible that does this. Ah, here is where the problem starts. What do we do with this phenomena today? Is it something that we should be doing as well, or is it something that happened long ago for a specific purpose? Well, your answer will depend on whom you direct the question to. Stay with us as we look into this fascinating miracle and try and see what we are taught to do now! Should Christians be speaking in tongues now? Let’s find out…
