The Relay

This Weekend – The Bible says that “children are a heritage from the Lord”.  That means that they are gifts, not earned possessions.  Julie Sellers talks about her adopting a child from Russia, with the handing over of the baby from one woman to her was in a sense a “relay”.  The “baton” of life was handed to her in the relay of  life.  That’s really not a bad analogy.   So much of life is really a relay: the job, the house, the tasks, the family itself is like a relay race.  One person hands the baton to another.  We’re all recipients of a “baton”.  What are we doing with the batons that have been handed our way?

Four Kinds of Hearers

Luke 8:1-15

This Week – Most people know that a parable is an “earthly story with a spiritual meaning”.  However, most people don’t realize that there is only one parable where Jesus tells us exactly what the parable means or represents.  It’s the parable that we study this week on “CrossHope”.  He tells of four kinds of soil that the farmer faces in his work; Jesus says they represent four kinds of hearers or listeners to the Word of God.  Which one are you?

Monday (9/26) – Listening not only happens in the mind via the ear; listening happens in the heart.  This week we study what is called the “Parable of the Sower”, where Jesus describes four types of hearers using the analogy of 4 types of soil.  Luke introduces us to women who were involved in the ministry of Christ; there were many who helped in the work of Christ.

Four Kinds of Hearers, Part 1

Tuesday (9/27) – When Jesus identifies four types of soil, He then explains how the word of God (seed) is applied to the ground, and there are four types of responses.  You can’t read this parable without seeing yourself in it!  Be honest, which soil represents the “soil” of your heart?  Is your heart hardened or rocky?  Is it “thorny” meaning choked by the cares of this world?  Or is it receptive to the seed?

Four Kinds of Hearers, Part 2

Wednesday (9/28) – We share a story about Carl Sagan, famous astronomer of recent years, now deceased.   He didn’t believe in life after death because he wanted “evidence” to prove it.  We talk about the greatest evidence for life after death is in the One who claimed to be the resurrection and the life.  He is the proof!  Listen to the story that may speak to your doubts and reservations about Christ.

Four Kinds of Hearers, Part 3

Thursday (9/29) – Worries, riches, and pleasures are the three things that Jesus identifies as the things that will “choke” out the word of God in my life.  Isn’t that amazingly applicable to your life and mine in 2016?  How does that speak to you?  Which one of the three can be pegged as the “choker” of spiritual life in your soul?

Four Kinds of Hearers, Part 4

Friday (9/30) – We close with telling about the most interesting phone call I have ever received from a radio listener.  It came in Atlanta from a woman who introduced herself as being Jewish, and yet a regular listener to our program.  I asked how she handled the statements about Jesus being the Messiah, the Son of God etc.  I honestly was perplexed.  You need to hear her answer!  It will surprise you!

    Your preaching this week titled Conflict,Criticism, and Condemnation was a message the whole church and believers everywhere needs to hear! Slanderous accusations and bitterness breaks many a family and quenches the Holy Spirit in the church. It’s the tool Satan uses most effectively against the ministry of the Gospel! Please send me a CD of the whole message if it’s available.

    I love listening to ‘certain-key’ ministers on Sirius as I drive through Dallas traffic on my way to the office and home again each day. The oddest thing is, I get as much or more Christian-life insight from of your 5-minute talks with me (you do talk to me) as I do from many who preach for 30-minutes. You have a God given way of succinctly stating just what I need to hear each morning. How do you do that? I’m going to add you to four others to whom I send support because I know and believe you are the ‘real deal’ and I so enjoy you.

    My husband heard your message on the power of the tongue..he asked me to listen..we have been struggling after some harsh words exchagned. We are in very different places….with our faith I believe and it is my daily prayer for God to bring us closer together….to fill our hearts with the holy spirit to be kinder to each other. This message, for me, was a great place to start….it has allowed me to begin the forgiveness process and I am greatful for your ministry. Thank you.
