Ep.497: Am I My Brother’s Keeper?
Personal responsibility towards one another
Theme Scripture: Genesis 4:9
Are you your brother’s keeper? Are you? Are you responsible for his health, his well being, his wealth and his happiness? Is it your place to intervene in his daily affairs? Do you have the right to correct him when he goes astray? Would you want your brother to have this “keeping” power over you? To what extent should we be involved in the lives of others and to what extent should we want them involved in our life? Stay with us as we look into this very difficult subject and attempt to put the principle of watching out for one another into a biblical and godly perspective.
Ep.496: He is Not Here; He is Risen!!
Crucifixion, resurrection and world salvation
Theme Scripture: Matthew 28:6
Throughout history, there have been many whose lives have had a massive impact on their world, for better or for ill. There have been leaders like Mahatma Ghandi, Winston Churchill and Martin Luther King Jr. There have been doctors and scientists like Louis Pasteur, Madame Currie and The Mayo Brothers. There have been inventors like Guttenburg, the Wright Brothers and Thomas Edison. There have been explorers like Louis and Clark and Sir Ernest Shackelton. There have been heroes like Mother Theresa, Jackie Robinson and Harriet Tubman. And there have been those who have overcome unthinkable odds, like Helen Keller and Ludwig Van Bethoven. All of these lives were of great impact and importance. On this program we are going to focus on another life - the life of one man - the man Christ Jesus, whose impact was so great on this world that the full effect of it has not yet been understood, much less felt. Join us as we honor this life and its sacrifices, lived 2000 years ago that forever changed the course of humanity. Jesus Christ – He is Risen!!!
Ep.495: On Palm Sunday – Where did Jesus Lead Us?
The meaning of the Passover and Jesus' leadership
Theme Scripture: Mark 11:9-10
Leadership is an amazing thing. When you come across a true leader, they change you. The very best of leaders can focus you and help you to see that which was out of your vision. They can inspire you and help you to have courage to do things you may have previously believed as undoable. They can strengthen you and help you fight when you would have normally given up. They lead you. They lead you by their example, their courage, their wisdom and their vision. Jesus was such a leader. This program looks at his leadership in the context of what is now known as Palm Sunday – a day that symbolized the greatest of victories and yet was instrumental in the death of the victor. What was the real victory of Palm Sunday? Where did Jesus lead us in this victory?
Ep.494: Was Chicken Little Right About the Sky Falling?
Difficulties at the end of this age
Theme Scripture: Matthew 24:22
On this program, we have often spoken about the ending of this present age being a necessary prerequisite for the coming kingdom of God. The big question this morning is, where are we in the progression from this age to the next? Is it all coming soon? How soon? Is it something to be afraid of? Should we “head for the hills?” Stay with us as we look into this fascinating prophetic subject and try to get a handle on coming events from a biblical perspective.
Ep.493: What Fruit Does Your Spirit Yield? (Part II)
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?
