GOS-12 – The Power of Regeneration

If you were called upon to go and share a message about Jesus Christ and explain how to be saved, born-again, and live the life of a believer, what would you share? Let me add that you will be facing, as your audience, 2,000 antagonistic, gang members who: All have killed in cold-blooded murder, with their own hands,  at least one person (and then went on to eat the dead body, I might add); All are presently, actively involved in some form of deep, black witchcraft; All have both a heavy drinking and drug addiction history; and  All are addicted to living in some form of sexual perversion: either incest, adultery, or fornication.

GOS-09: The Gift of Salvation Ignored: Jesus Explains Death and the Reality of Hell

What will happen to anyone who ignores or rejects the Gift of Salvation? As we open to Luke 16 this morning, we open to Christ's clearest and most compelling words about what happens at the moment of death, to every human that will ever live. We find more details in less space than anywhere else in the Bible. This is Christ's guide to the afterlife and is one of the most priceless insights anyone could get on what our endless future will be life.  In just under 300 words in the NKJV, Jesus outlines more than a dozen absolutes of our eternal existence that each of us will possess at the moment we pass through the door of death and out of daily life on Earth.

LOD-03 – Finding God When Alone and Struggling

Last time we saw that David had a simple focus in the midst of a very complex life. As we open to Psalm 19, look with me at the last verse. Here is the cry of David's heart, right in front of us, and on paper. David simply said, "I want my life to please YOU. Every part, seen or unseen, I want my life to please you." 14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer. There is it, short and sweet, David unabashedly and as a young man laid open his life before the Lord who was watching.

Psalm 32 explains how the rivers of living water refreshed the soul of David. The man after God’s own heart has returned. The joy is back, the peace is back, the fellowship is renewed, and the songs begin to flow again. But we must never forget—the consequences continued. And what a song it must have [...]

A Prayer When We Feel Insecure

David faced constant insecurities and huge responsibilities as he and his men hid from King Saul in the forest of Hereth. Psalm 17:6-7, “I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God; incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech. Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who [...]

The Grace to Sleep When Facing Danger

In the midst of the worst time of his life David fell sound asleep. In the midst of one of the most dangerous situations David had ever faced he relaxed, sang a song to the Lord and laid down–completely confident that the Lord would protect him. Have you ever really thought about why we sleep [...]
