INTERVENTION

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

This Weekend – The word intervention is big in our culture today.  It is most often used with the drug epidemic.  Did you know that many city and county morgues around the country have “run out of room” because of drug related deaths in their areas!  Drug intervention can be a matter of life and death!  The greatest intervention of all took place when Jesus Christ came to this earth to intervene in history, your life, your family, and your marriage!  The word intervene means to “come between”.  He came between you and your sin, sin that according to scripture is a death sentence.  Listen to this story about a car owned by Adolf Hitler, and how it relates to the atoning death of Christ on the cross.  Embrace the cross that Jesus died on! It’s a matter of life and death!

CROSSHOPE

SIMPLE GOSPEL SERIES

#56 – Air Date Week of 5/29/2017

Rich, Young, and Lost!

Luke 18:18-27

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

This Week – One of the most famous stories that Jesus told is referred to as the “Rich Young Ruler.”  Matthew, Mark, and Luke all include this story in their gospel accounts.  It’s a story that is actually the story of many Americans today in 2017.  This man needed to change gods, not just what he believed.  He thought of himself highly; Jesus reminded him of His need for the Lord in his life.  We explain how that is your need and mine!

Rich, Young, and Lost! Podcast

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

Monday (5/29) – We begin by talking about how men do not do as well as women in many areas of life. Men are more likely to end up in prison, in addiction, or in depression than women according to an expert we quote.  We then introduce the “rich young ruler” described in Luke 18 who was saddened greatly by what Jesus told him that he needed to do to inherit eternal life.  We need to read and study this story today!  It just may be the message that you need in this point of your life.

Rich, Young, and Lost! Part 1

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

Tuesday (5/30) – This passage is actually a conversation between Jesus and a young man with wealth and power. His first question to Jesus was, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”  When Jesus quotes to him some of the 10 commandments, he tells Jesus that he had followed those since childhood!  He honestly believed that and probably said it sincerely. We all have our “list” of why we should go to heaven. (Even Christian people have their list, by the way!)

Rich, Young, and Lost! Part 2

Wednesday (5/31) – I try to never tell a person sitting next to me on an airplane that I’m a minister.  If I do, one of two things happens.  They both clam up and don’t say much after that or they give me their list.  They really do. They rehearse the good things they have done or are doing.  Sometimes their list is long. I always shock them with my response to their list.   Listen today to hear what I tell them!

Rich, Young, and Lost! Part 3

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

Thursday (6/1) – This is not a message about “giving”; it’s a message about “living”.  We either live with the god of money and things ruling our life, just as this young, rich ruler did or we live with the living Lord in our lives.  We use a powerful story out of a James Michener novel that tells of a man “worshiping his pagan god” with sexual immorality.  His wife says, “If my husband had only had a different god, he might have been a different man!”  Wow, isn’t that true in our current day?

Rich, Young, and Lost! Part 4

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

Friday (6/2) – Tell me your god, and I’ll tell you what kind of man or woman you are!  We become like that which we worship.  Money can create a false independence in my life or yours! Money can “shackle us to this earth”. Money and things can make it difficult to die.  What do you have in your life (physically) that is making it difficult for you to die?  Money can make you more self-centered than you already are! We’re all self-centered to one degree or another! We are either money centered or Christ-centered!

  2. What a blessing to hear your voice Randy, you are greatly missed at Crossview. The way you delivered God’s message every Sunday is greatly missed. I had never felt closer to God when you spoke. If you are at another church I would greatly appreciate knowing where. God bless!

  3. Randy, your five minutes each morning as I drive to work, means so much to me. I love your program and your teaching is obviously anointed by God himself. Thank you for what you bring each day to so many of us. I pray for your ministry always.

  4. I was looking for an old message about woundedness,when we feel like God has failed us. I believe the message number was 5364. How do I find that in your archives if I do not know the date of the broadcast?

      Thank you for being a CrossHope listener.
      We have searched our database and have not found a message containing the references you’ve given. The message number you’ve given is outside of our current numbering, as we are only up to #3566. Is there any additional information you can provide?

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. I would like to purchase a c/d or DVD of the, “Tongue Piercing”. Are these available for purchase?

    Reply
  17. 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.
