Billy Graham – America’s Pastor

We Live in Christ

As believers in Christ we live in Christ. John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” When we were lost we were under bondage to the law of sin and death. When Christ appeared we were rescued from those bonds and now live in Jesus – our new dwelling.
* What if i was the rich young ruler in Mark 10:17-22? Am i to sell my worldly possessions, take up my cross and follow Him?
* Corey asks for clarification concerning Acts 8:14-25 concerning receiving the Holy Spirit.

Where Do You Live?

Where do you live as a believer? It’s one of the most important questions to answer. We live in the world, but that’s not where we abide. We abide in Jesus. We once abided in the world, but we were rescued from the world and placed into Christ. Colossians 1:13 “He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son.”

  • A caller asks about giving. Her church teaches that their members should give one month’s salary in addition to their tithe.
  • Joan asks about “not calling your father, father” and “worship God or money”.
  • Samuel calls concerning the parable of the 10 virgins.

Jesus is our priest forever, appointed by God, and we can trust him to meet us in our need.

Submit to One Another in Love

Being established in truth really spans all relationships we have. In Ephesians 5:21 Paul tells us to submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ and not consider ourselves more important than others. * Our hearts go out to the families of those who lost loved ones yesterday. * Brad is grateful that he has a secure foundation in Christ. * John asks what the birthright that was passed to Jacob.

Love is…

Serving in Love

We want to live our lives in romantic bliss. But we don’t really see much of that in the Scriptures. What you do see is a love that transcends and that allows us to withstand the troubles of this world. He has poured his love into our hearts. In 1 Corinthians 13 Paul writes about this love. * Diana asks for help in evolution vs. creationism.
* Why was the tribe of Manasseh split into two?
* Can someone lose their salvation?
* Tabitha wonders how she can better reach here husband with the Gospel.
