CROSSHOPE VISUAL STORIES

Week #32 – 3/19/2017

Ripples

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

This Weekend – Adrian Rodgers was one of my favorite preachers of the gospel.  He still is!  Listen to this Visual Story called, “Ripples”.  It tells about a “chain of witnessing” that happened over decades on two continents.  Adrian tells of one person’s story of witnessing and leading a person to Christ; then those people who were won to Christ leading others to Christ.  What “ripples” have you and I started for the Kingdom of God?  We all start ripples that have no impact on eternality, these do!  Before you leave this earth, start a ripple for the Lord!

SIMPLE GOSPEL

Message 46 – Airs Week of 3/20/2017

The Absolute Necessity of Repentance!

Luke 13:1-9

This Week – A great African American minister led a seminar that I observed on preaching.  He was asked, “How many points should a sermon have?”  Gardner Taylor answered, “At least one!”  I’ve never forgotten that admonition from this Brooklyn minister.  We share two this week in a passage in Luke where Jesus actually refers to some current events of the day. It’s a great message on repentance.

Monday (3/20) – We begin with a story of me doing a “ride along” with my Cincinnati police sergeant brother- in- law.  An employee of a company was stealing money from a cash box at the business.  How he was caught would be funny if it weren’t so sad!  It leads us into our text this week from Luke 13, where Jesus says twice, “Unless you repent, you too will perish!”

Tuesday (3/21) – Jesus refers to two current events where innocent people were killed.  In one, people were murdered in the worship of God; the other was where a tower fell over an killed 18 bystanders .  Jesus asks the rhetorical question, “Were these people worse sinners than others to deserve their death?”  Jesus answer surprised his audience, just like it will surprise you and me.

The Absolute Necessity of Repentance! Part 2

Wednesday (3/22) – Jesus uses the story of the two tragedies to look at His audience and say twice, “Unless you repent, you too will perish” (to die spiritually).  The Lord says that to you and to me in 2017.  We tell a powerful story of a drug dealer’s encounter with death that lead to his repentance.  Maybe it will speak to what’s going on in your life!

The Absolute Necessity of Repentance! Part 3

Thursday (3/23) – A person doesn’t usually repent until they feel the conviction of God in their life. We’ll talk about how repentance is both an “event” and a “process”.  Where are you in the repentance need in your life?  You may be facing a repentance event in your life; perhaps for you it will be the beginning of a process that may start today!

The Absolute Necessity of Repentance! Part 4

Friday (3/24) – I share stories often in my messages.  It’s not often I share a story about a person that I know personally.  He was an Army medic from Columbus, Ohio who was a part of the Normandy Invasion on June 6, 1944.  His story is powerfully moving.  Don’t miss this story.  It wraps up this message about repentance in a dramatic way.

    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.
