One Heart, One Voice
Bob ChristopherJoin us as Bob Christopher reminds the believers that our freedom should not be an offense to others. The primary reason for our freedom is to share Jesus with others. When Jesus died on the cross, He did not seek to please Himself, but rather, did what He did for our benefit. This is the same attitude we should have for others. We should please our neighbors for their good. This does not mean being a man-pleaser, but living in such a way that will not cause a weaker person to stumble. Are we willing to lay down our wants and desires in order to help our neighbor?
A Stick in the Spokes
Richard PeiferJoin us as Richard Peifer shares the truths found in Romans 14. Eating, drinking, keeping special days should not be the basis of our worship. However, if we know someone hasn't reached that truth yet, we should not put any stone or obstacle in anyone's way by forcing our freedoms or convictions of specific days, celebrations or food to them. Do only what leads to peace and edification, and nothing that will cause others to stumble.
Authority, Debt and New Clothes
Bob ChristopherJoin us as Bob Christopher explains the Godly purpose of the government. According to Romans 13, the government is to be used for the good of the people. If the government fails to live up to the purpose intended by God, Christians should speak up, but should do so in love. Love does its neighbor no harm. Paul says that Christians should never be in debt, except for the debt of love. The debt of love will never be repaid. We can trust God in spite of the turmoil in the world today. God is always working something out behind the scenes, and it is for the good of those who love Him. Trust not in mankind but in God, and God alone.
It's Only Logical
Richard PeiferJoin us as Richard Peifer shares the truths found in Romans 12. Not all members of the body of Christ have the same function. God is the one who decides who needs to be where. We have the privilege of trusting God to know how and when to manifest those gifts in us. As Christians, we are called to love one another, as well as to be servants to the world. Instead of revenge, pride and arrogance, we learn to react with humility, live in harmony and bless those who persecute us. Do not be overcome with cowardice, but overcome cowardice with benevolence.
God So Loved the World
Bob ChristopherJoin us as Bob Christopher shares some truth found in Romans 11. The Gospel message is not a Jewish message, it's a humanity message. Therefore, as long as you have breath in your body, it is not too late to accept God's gift of Eternal life, no matter who you are. God orchestrated events in such a way that both Jew and Gentile have a chance to hear and accept this gift. Neither Jew nor Gentile have anything to boast about. It is God's love and kindness that leads us to repentance. Have you accepted His love and kindness in your life?
