Reflections of Grace 45: Living From the Heart, part 8 – Empty Places

ReflectionsOfGrace_thumbnail

[display_podcast] The continued search to find something on this earth to fill our empty places is costly.Life with Jesus is much more than an entrance into Heaven.  It is an abundant, satisfying life.  But how does this work to satisfy my existence now? How does He become the depth of my desire, and get me off this merry go round? I think some clues lie in the life of a woman whom we don’t even know her name.  The Samaritan woman.Jesus was tired and thirsty and walked over to sit … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] This week, we begin in India where Bernie stepped into the home of an idol maker:So we came to the last day of our stay.  It was beginning to grow late in the afternoon and time was growing short.  We simply prayed that God would give us an opportunity to share fruitfully one more time before leaving.  Then, this young man approached us and asked us to come up to his house.  (Must be the Lord, right?).  While we thought we were going to a family’s house, we ended up being l … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] We are blessed and honored to have one of my favorite people on the planet join our show:  Pastor Tommy Nelson of Denton Bible Church in Denton, TX (DentonBible.org).  Anyone familiar with my own story is familiar with Tommy.  The tapes that were given to me regarding the Book of Ecclesiastes that God used to pull me to His kingdom were from Tommy’s ministry. Now, I believe that the Song of Solomon should be taught in every junior high school across our country.  Let the paren … [Read more...]

Meeting People Head On Thumbnail

Last time, I shared what the Bible says about how to become a Christian. But, how can we be assured that if we put our faith in Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world, that He personally came and died for you to pay your penalty of death for your sin, so that you could have His righteousness – the Bible clearly says that you could be assured that if you were to die today, you would have eternal life and be with God forever. And that’s an assurance that’s worth more than all the money in … [Read more...]

Confessions Of A Closet Christian: Why Do We Worry?

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] I think I follow a bit of a God pattern.  Here’s what it looks like: I work myself up into a tizzy.  This is usually very melodramatic as no one has died, but rather plans – my plans – have changed. I freak out in my tizzy.  This usually happens at a speed of 0-60 and sends me into stern-worded rants, ugly crying, and the mass consumption of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream along with a dozen cookies. I realize God is supposed to be some sort of Mastermind, so I decide to put my wh … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] In 1 Samuel 8, we transition to the Israeli people’s request for a human king:As Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons to be judges over Israel. 2 Joel and Abijah, his oldest sons, held court in Beersheba. 3 But they were not like their father, for they were greedy for money. They accepted bribes and perverted justice. Now, remember that we discussed this subtheme throughout Samuel of father/son relationships and leadership.  Several examples are given, including this one … [Read more...]
