Humans have faults but that does not mean we cannot serve God, and serve Him in a mighty way.
This is the only place in scripture where Susanna is mentioned, but, oh, what a singular testimony to have!
I’m not ashamed to own my Lord, or to defend his cause, maintain the honor of his Word, the glory of his cross.
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
If we are not showing deep love and devotion for Jesus continually in our lives, then do we truly understand or appreciate how much we have been forgiven?
In order to truly dwell in the kingdom of God (and not just visit from time to time), we need to understand what things, situations, relationships, etc. work against our discipleship.
Today's edition of Triumphal Feast is the conclusion of the message “Submission” from Ephesians 5:21-33. This message focuses on the husband's role as Christ in the home and how the home should reflect the relationship between Christ and His bride, the church. We apologize for the poor audio quality of this recording. Our primary microphone failed in the middle of the sermon.
Ephesians Series • 19 “Submission” 5:21-33 Continuing in his series from the letter to the Ephesians, Elder Bryce teaches about God’s design for the home and how it honors God and should reflect the relationship between Christ and His Bride, the church. In part one of this message, Elder Bryce defines what Paul means by submission in the home, and the husband’s responsibility to be Christ in the home.
Today's edition of Triumphal Feast concludes the message "Redeeming the Time." We live in a society with a consumer mentality and unfortunately that mentality has infiltrated the thinking of God's people regarding church. Many look for and attend a church that fits their personal taste or that gives them the experience they desire. This attitude is foreign to God's design for HIS church. Church is about glorifying God in Jesus Christ and learning to live like Christ by loving others. Through submitting ourselves to one another in a single local assembly, we will redeem the time and live our lives to the fullest.
Time is fleeting. Once it has passed, we cannot physically go back and reclaim it. However, the Apostle Paul teaches us that we can redeem that time by living differently. The closer we are to Christ in our daily walk, the closer we are to eternity! When we seek the good of others rather than pleasing ourselves, we walk on "God's time" and make the most of our lives.
