Each of our lives is marked by defining moments - times which have given definition to who we are and what we are. Some of them are positive and some of them are negative. They come at various different times and places and often we are unaware of just how much impact they will have on the rest of our life. The Bible is filled with defining moments. We see them in the lives of many of its characters and we also see them in the life of God's people Israel. One of these times is recorded for us in Numbers 13-14, when Israel stood at the door of the Promised Land at Kadesh-Barnea. Listen and see what happened and learn how things could have been different.
Much has been written about the love of a mother, so much that you would think that love almost comes naturally for a mother. But you ask any Mom and if she is honest, she will tell you how God used her children to fine tune her motherly love. And the more children she had, the more fine tuning she received. Love is a very important aspect of parenting, but there is a facet of love that is absolutely essential to develop if you would aspire to do the very best for your child. If this is of interest to you, listen on...
Every one of us needs to be a good student in the school of life and not waste experience. Psalm 108 is an arrangement of two of David's previous Psalms from two separate experiences. Here we find the Psalmist applying the lessons learned in former struggles to the new dilemma at hand. This message provides valuable insights for each of us going through the various difficulties of life.
Far too many believers have made professions of faith in Jesus Christ and yet their Christian experience is one of frustration and misery. Like the children of Israel of old, they end up wandering in the wilderness of sin and eventually die in the desert of defeat. God has intended much more for us. Jesus told His disciples that He came that they might life and described it with the word "abundantly". The writer of Hebrews provides us with some insight regarding this quality of Christian living, and uses the word "rest" as its defining characteristic. Listen and discover how you might experience this abundant life of rest.
As Jesus watched the rich young ruler slowly walk away, he commented to his disciples about how difficult it was for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. He said it was easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. The disciples were astounded by this statement and questioned, "Who then can be saved?" Jesus answered them with a very important faith principle - "With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." Most folks will look at this statement and conclude, God can do anything! And that is true, but Jesus was teaching his disciples something even more amazing - a man, with God, can do impossible things. Let this message challenge your thinking in this area.
