Ephesians – 2:11-22: One New Man

As Gentiles, our heritage was separated from Christ, alienated from Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise. But, in Christ, Jew and Gentile have been made one, we have been reconciled to God and the hostile relationship of the past is now one of brothers and sisters in Christ.

Interview with Paul McClain

We welcome Paul McClain to the broadcast today. He serves as the Chairman of the Board for Basic Gospel. Paul shares his story of receiving Jesus Christ in 1974. His early life was filled with prayer, confession and works. But it never satisfied him. 19 years after he came to Christ, Paul and his wife attended one of our conferences. For the first time, he heard the truth of the New Covenant and his life has never been the same.

Are You Qualified?

Let’s look again at Colossians 1:12 concerning the word “qualified”. We use the words in sports and all kinds of contests. So when we see a versed about being qualified we ask the question, “What do I have to do to be qualified?” We are qualified because of what Jesus Christ did so we can live everyday in Him.
* How do we protect our children and those of others from the evil that is growing in the world?
* 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says that we should “pray without ceasing.” How is that possible? * Please help me understand John 10:10.
* Tony calls about a family in his church going through trouble.

Behavior vs. Truth

One of our favorite verses is Colossians 1:14. But let’s look at the couple verses leading up to that… “being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” It is God himself who is doing the work in and through you. Be joyous in your relationship with the Lord.
* Peggy is concerned for her loved one and doesn’t know whether they are saved or not.
* I find my husband lying to me and justifying it because he’s saved. What can I do?

Made Alive Forever

Every believer has eternal security. When God saves you, he saves you completely. So what is salvation? It’s much more than the forgiveness of sins – it’s the giving of life. We were separated from the life of God by our sin. 1 John 3:5 “You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin.” He died for us so that we could have the very life of God in us. As this truth sinks deep into your soul, walk confidently in the assurance of your salvation. * Travis asks about practicing Yoga as part of his exercise routine. * Will we be able to recognize each other in Heaven?
* What is the truth about “conviction?” Does God convict us of sin, or are we convicted by our own spirit?
* Could you please explain Luke 10:17-20 for us? Is this for today, or only for that place and time?
* What are your thoughts on the return of the days of Noah concerning the Nephilim. Matthew 24:37-39

Ephesians – 2:1-10: Alive in Christ

The bad news is that apart from Jesus Christ we are dead in our sins and our realm of existence is sin and death following the ways of this world. The good news is God is rich in mercy and because of his great love for you he sent Jesus to rescue you from the darkness and make you alive with him sustained by his grace through faith. Salvation is not the result of works – it can only be had by faith. It’s by grace through faith from start to finish.

The Truthfulness of God

John 5:24 is one of my favorite verses. “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” God’s promise are based upon him and it has to do with his character and not ours. * Can we disappoint God?
* Can you please explain Colossians 1:23?
* How did God restore his image in us?
* David is struggling to find the will of God for his lfie. * Did Jesus go into Hell when he died before he went to Heaven?
