Behold, the Lamb of God
Behold, the Lamb of God
Description:John the Baptist said many memorable, many valuable and important things. But perhaps the most important sentence he ever spoke - perhaps one of the most important sentences anyone ever spoke - is found in John 1.29: "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" Listen in as we unfold this rich description of Jesus from John's lips.
The Prayers of the Persecuted
Description:Jesus taught us to "pray for those who persecute [us]" (Matthew 5.44). But exactly how ought we to pray for them? Or is that something that we, safe and sound in America, don't really need to think about? Listen in as we consider these things.
With the Holy Spirit ... and Fire
Description:In this message, we take another look at the amazing, Christ-exalting humility of John the Baptist ... and along the way, learn some lessons about baptism, ministers of the gospel, new life in the Holy Spirit, and the final judgment! Listen in!
God Takes His Stand
Description:Injustice and ignorance are serious matters in the eyes of the Lord. So serious that He stands "in His own congregation" to judge such sins. Listen in as we consider God's indictments of His people of old, and consider how they might apply in our own day.
A Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness
Description:"A voice" - that's what John, one of the greatest men in the Bible, called himself. Not a very proud title - but descriptive! This was John's greatest calling and achievement - heralding the coming of the Messiah. Over the next several messages, we hope to consider exact what this herald said. Listen in wth us.
A Psalm for the New Year
Description:Psalm 81 was written as a song of celebration and renewal, to be sung and considered at the Jewish new year. Such changes of the calendar are, of course, good times for celebrating, reflecting, and renewal. But there is no bad time for such things, is there? So join as we refresh our souls in the God of Israel, even in the middle of the year!
Jesus Came Preaching
Description:We think of Jesus as healer; as friend of sinners; ad miracle worker; and even as teacher. But did you ever picture Him as a preacher, proclaiming the urgent need of repentance and faith? Mark 1 tells us tis is one reason why He came! But what did He preach? What was Jesus' gospel? Listen in as we think it out from Mark 1.14-15.
Cause Your Face to Shine upon Us
Description:Another psalm for difficult days. Listen in as we pull five nuggets from it.
Prayers for Dark Days
Description:The psalms put words in our mouths when we, like the psalmists, face difficult days. But sometimes the contexts of the psalms seem so severe that we cannot fully identify with the words of the psalmist. Psalm 79 is one of those psalms. Can most western Christians identify with the psalmist who saw destruction and bloodshed all around? Not fully. But there are still lessons to be learned from his prayers in such days. Listen in as we consider them.
