True Forgiveness

This Weekend – To be honest, there are a few stories that I tell that get to me, emotionally.  This is one of them.  Many people wonder at some time in their life, “Does the Lord really and truly forgive me for what I’ve done?”  That’s your question.  This story answers that question in a powerful way.  I wish there was a way I could see you as you watch and listen to this story.  If you’re like me, it just may bring a lump to your throat and a tear to your eye!

SIMPLE GOSPEL

Message 42 – Airs Week of 2/20/2017

Left Speechless!

Luke 14: 1-6

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

This Week – Has anyone ever said something to you that left you speechless?  It’s happened to us all at one time or another.  Jesus said something to a group of deeply religious people, known as Pharisees.  It was actually just a fairly simple question.  Yet Luke says, “They had nothing to say!”  They were strangely tongue-tied because of the context of the conversation.   Let it speak to you all this week.

Monday (2/20) – When people are watching you, is your behavior any different?  Many times it is, if we’re honest.  I begin by telling an embarrassing story out of my own life, when people were watching me at the Mall.  What would do or say differently if you really thought that the Lord God Almighty was watching you.  He is!

Left Speechless! Part 1

Tuesday (2/21) – We look at a passage in Luke where we’re told that Jesus was being “careful ly watched” to see if He would heal someone on the Sabbath Day (Saturday).  We point out that the phrase to “watch carefully” in the Greek means to “watch someone scrupulously and insidiously”.  We define those terms; it just may remind you of how you watched someone else recently.  It may describe how someone watched you in a situation!

Left Speechless! Part 2

Wednesday (2/22) – People watch how we talk. Words are important to the Lord. People watch how we treat strangers.   Some people think that we can be rude to those that we don’t know!  How we treat strangers can say something about our walk with the Lord.  People notice how we treat family members.  There is something wrong when a husband or wife treats their spouse like a stranger; then turns around and treats a stranger with graciousness. Sound familiar?

Left Speechless! Part 3

Thursday (2/23) – Sometimes we treat the dead like the living; we treat the living like the dead!  We are watched in how we treat other people in the body of Christ, the Church.  People watch how we handle our money.  You are being watched in every way including how we handle problems.  To sum up this part of the message, you and I are being watched how we conduct our lives!

Left Speechless! Part 4

Friday (2/24) – Jesus healed a man with “dropsy” on the Sabbath. Dropsy is what doctors refer to as “edema”, the retention of fluid in our legs and feet.  Instead of rejoicing that the man was healed, there were those watching who were “offended “that Jesus healed on the Sabbath!  Luke says that Jesus “took hold” of the man to heal him.  Jesus wants to take hold of you and me though our circumstances and through His word.  Let Him do it!

Left Speechless! Part 5

    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.
