Short Prayers

This Weekend – There nothing super spiritual about praying “long” prayers; there’s nothing less spiritual about “short” ones either.  A prayer is a human being calling out to the Creator, the Redeemer, and the Sustainer of all life.  My friend David Ruleman discovered the power of short prayers in his battle with cancer.  Maybe you can relate to his recent prayer to the Lord.  It just may prompt you to offer a short prayer to the God who loves you more than you love yourself!

Message 38 – Aired 1/23/2017

The Ultimate Light

Luke 11:14-20

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

This Week – What do you think about when someone mentions the word “light” to you?  Did you know that the Lord Himself speaks of His very identity connected with Light; He IS light!  Light is connected with our spiritual condition.  We either walk in the light or we walk in darkness, spiritually speaking.  The New Testament book of Hebrews tells us that coming to Christ is coming to the Light.

Monday (1/23) – We begin with the powerful story of a man who describes his early adult life in terms of a “gangster mentality”.  He was a drug user and a drug dealer.  He was living in “darkness”.  Something happened that changed his life.  He came to the Light that is Christ.  We share the text where Jesus talks about light in spiritual terms.  We all need to come to the Light!

The Ultimate Light, Part 1

Tuesday (1/24) – Jesus referred to Himself as the Light of the world.  He then refers to His followers as light.  Why is that?  We simply reflect the Light that is in Him that has been received into our lives. We “radiate” His light.  We all radiate something.  Some people radiate hatred, anger, bitterness, or resentment.   What do you and I radiate?

The Ultimate Light, Part 2

Wednesday (1/25) – All of life can boil down to being in light or darkness.  A person’s life is measured in light or darkness.  A person’s marriage or family is measured in light or darkness.  If you became a believer in Christ as an adult, you know that experientially. We not only see the Light, we see everything else by it!

The Ultimate Light, Part 3

Thursday (1/26) – Think about what the Light of Christ has done in your life since you received it.  God doesn’t simply give us a dose of light to look at, He gives us His light to enable us to see everything we confront in this life by it.  People we meet may be perceived differently because of the light.  A job opportunity may be understood differently because of His light.  What do you see differently because of His light?

The Ultimate Light, Part 4

Friday (1/27) – We close with a story of a surgeon whose life was changed by the light of Christ that returned to his personal life and career.  How it happened involved a life threatening event to his life. He said that he looked death “straight in the face”.  What might it take in your life to come to the light?  What people ultimately need in life is not more money, more education, more things; we need the Light of Christ.

    Luke 8: 22 – 25; Oct. 14, 2016
    Dear Randy,

    Your message from Luke about the storms of life and how Christ is in the boat through all weather was timely for me.
    My earthly father, Sherwood Alonzo Merchant Jr., is slowly dying in home hospice care. He has defied odds and lasted in his body much longer than anyone predicted. As the storm of death closes in on the family, I placed my iPhone on his pillow so Dad could hear the last section of the message that even in death Christ is in the boat with us.

    Thank you for this powerful message,

    God Bless you,

    Mark Sherwood Merchant

    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.
