A SOLDIER’S PRAYER, with Ravi Zacharias
This Weekend – Ravi Zacharias has preached around the world, including Viet Nam as a young 25 year-old preacher. God has used him in a mighty way and still does. Listen as he shares the written prayer of a young soldier, seriously wounded in the conflict in Southeast Asia. He really didn’t know much about life to be facing death. And yet he discovered the God of creation by observing the creation. He discovered Christ by looking at the cross of Christ. We all have the same opportunities! Have you come to the point in your own journey where you discover forgiveness, love, and peace through knowing the Prince of Peace? You can today! Come to the same One this young soldier did years ago!

WHO’S YOUR SHEPHERD?
Message 21, Airing Week of 3/18/2019
Land of Beginning Again
This Week – I’ve been told it’s a famous poem by Louisa Fletcher Tarkington, “The Land of Beginning Again”. It may express how you feel even today; you wish you could go back to the beginning of a specific time in your life and relive it. Does that resonate with you? There is a land of beginning again with the Lord God Almighty. What is it? It’s called forgiveness!
Monday (3/18) – We begin with a conversation with a former student of Ohio State University. Years ago, he told me he wished he could go back to his beginning days at OSU. When I asked him why, he shared that his freshman year at college was the beginning of the “bad stuff” in his life. Perhaps most people have a day, week, or month they could relive! What about you?
Tuesday (3/19) – If there was someone in your life
who told you they will never forgive you of something that you said or did,
would you want to socialize with them?
Would you want to relate to a god who said he will never forgive you? Of course not! David says in Psalm 130 that with the Lord
there IS forgiveness.That
just may be good news for someone today!
Wednesday (3/20) – Do you know any scorekeepers in life? What are they? They are people who keep a record of everything you have done for the last year or beyond! You may be married to a score keeper; you may have a parent or child who is a scorekeeper. It’s no fun to be in relationship with a scorekeeper. It can actually be very debilitating emotionally and spiritually.
Thursday (3/21) – David says we fear the Lord because He forgives! Isn’t that remarkable? We fear God because ultimately He is the One whose forgiveness really matters! He then says God loves us with an unfailing love and with Him is complete redemption. Isn’t that really what we need in life? Anything positive in your life is connected to forgiveness!
Friday (3/22) – We share a touching story about forgiveness connected to “leaving the light on” on the front porch of someone’s home. It’s a true story that just may be a model for you. We all need to forgive someone; we all need to be forgiven. Maybe for you it’s both! It probably is! Let this closing story speak to you in a powerful way. “With the Lord, there IS forgiveness!”
