The word that comes to mind when I think about resurrection is anticipation. We look forward to His return and that wouldn’t be possible without the resurrection. He has given us His spirit as a guarantee of what lies ahead. * 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” * What is the difference between a requirement and an privilege? * Please explain Luke 16:15 “He said to them, ‘You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.’” Romans 10 “…my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved…” * Sherman calls to share his heart break over a situation with his children. * What do you think of a pastor who sells tobacco and alcohol in his day job?
We’ve looked at the resurrection all month and evidence for it that demands a verdict. But what does it mean to you? 1 Peter 1:3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…” * Is transubstantiation Scriptural? * Join us for STAND2014 June 19-21 more info at http://stand2014.com * What does Isaiah mean by “a government be upon His shoulder”? * What does “a thousand years is as a day” mean? * Will someone who accepts Christ on their deathbed be saved? * How could Jesus die on Friday and rise on Sunday be consistent with 3 days in the grave?
Today is marked on the calendar as “Earth Day”. I thought is would be interesting to talk about faith vs. science. How can we hold firm to our beliefs and intelligently discuss science? We can study matter, but ultimately we need to know where something came from. It comes down to origins. We know it all comes from God. * Please explain Hebrews 13:5. “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’” * Since there are many probable facts and prophecies in the Bible, is there a book with those recorded? * Joel talks about the age of earth in the light of God time vs. human time.
We celebrated what basic Gospel is all about yesterday. The fact that Jesus Christ is raised from the dead is hope for us. Hope beyond the grave. Life has been restored in us. The life lost in Adam and been replaced in Christ. But how do we know that Christ is resurrected? One of the sources is the eye witness accounts. * Please explain 1 Corinthians 3:17 “If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.” * Eugene talks about the resurrection and shares his insight. * Why did Paul warn Christians to not quench the Holy Spirit? 1 Thessalonians 5:19
On this special Good Friday edition of Basic Gospel, Bob tells the story of Jesus’ trial and execution as God demonstrated His incredible love for us as Christ took our sins on Himself, paying the ultimate price so that we could share in His righteousness and resurrected life. Richard gives insight into the Old Testament sacrificial system and what it meant to the Israelites. He goes on to compare the Old Testament and it’s many sacrifices to the one perfect sacrifice of the New Covenant. *** This program was repeated for the 3:30 broadcast. ***
With the resurrection three words come to mind, hope, life, and power. The resurrection has implications in our life here and now. I hope more and more believers will let it be the center issue of our daily lives. * Romans 2:13 and 3:20 seem contradictory. What is the difference? * I’ve been involved in both AA and NA and have over twenty years of sobriety. How do you address a group who has so many different beliefs? And how do you address those who argue against a God that would condemn “good people” to Hell. * How do I live the full Christian life? Have we strayed away from the early church?
I think we’re in the most exciting week of the calendar for Christians. The resurrection of Jesus is good news for those who turn to Him and receive Him. Apart from His resurrection there is no hope. Resurrection gives us Hope, Life, and Power. * Do you agree that David was a man after God’s own heart? So why does David ask forgiveness if there is he had such a close relationship with God? * When I’m at home I’m confident of my salvation, but at work it feels like I’m lost.
