Stand Firm

Anyone who’s been called to live a righteous life will be persecuted for it. But we’ve been equipped for it. Paul wrote this to Timothy: “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:6, 7 We can trust the God that lives in us to hand the adversity that comes to us.
* How do we forgive ourselves for past sins and how do we live with consequences of those sins? * Why would a God of love allow someone’s fiancĂ©e to be trafficked? * If God fulfills us, why marry?
* If we were given perfect hearts and were completely fulfilled by our relationship with God, why weren’t Adam and Eve satisfied? * Are paintings or movies of Jesus a form of idolatry?

Walk as Children of Light

Why do we see so much suffering? Why does God allow so much suffering? The evil one is still active in this world today. Through his deception Adam and Even were tempted by death. And since then man is under the law of sin and death. “… for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.” Ephesians 5:8 * If Jewish people denounce the Lord is that called blasphemy? * How do we live under the New Covenant if we’re no longer under the law? * What does God think about having weapons like guns for self-defense?

The Solution is Jesus

Why do bad things happen to good people? If God is good why is there suffering? Why does evil persist? The world looks for answers but does not realize the truth that this is a death vs. life matter. We are born dead to God and Jesus offers life – his life. Christ in us, our hope of glory.
* What is the best way to handle being among a group of atheists who make a joke about Jesus? * Is it wrong to be baptized just using the name Jesus?
* Does God cause disease to those who convert from one religion to another one?
* Why do we say Jesus dwells in our hearts when it’s the Spirit that dwells in us?

When Troubles Come…

We’re hit by tragedy on every side. If we’re not in the midst of one there’s one waiting for us. And that’s not good news for us. But we have hope in Jesus who told us “But take heart; I have overcome the world”. John 16:33 Our hope is in Christ in good and bad times. * Simply Grace Conference
* What is the significance of the crown of thorns placed upon Jesus? * Al is looking to receive his calling and wonders if it already occurred.
* Could you cover Esau and Jacob in the 9th chapter of Romans concerning predestination. * How do I know my mother’s salvation is secure?

Believe in the One He Has Sent

A special Labor Day broadcast! The Word of God has a lot to say about work. Today we take a look at just a few passages that speak to work. The work of God is this – to believe in the One he has sent (John 6:29-30). Our work is simple faith in Jesus Christ. Paul had a labor of love to share the good news of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 2:8-9). He reminds us, “your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” We are called to live by faith. As we do, we will see incredible things happen in and through our lives. We are God’s workmanship and we have been created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:8-9). As we live by faith in Jesus, the work we are called to do, we will see good works flowing in and through us. Where do these good works take place? Only in church? Only on mission fields? No, it’s in everyday life! As Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 3:22 “I saw that there was nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work.” We hope yo u enjoy
this special edition of Basic Gospel!
