Lost!

This Weekend – I don’t know if you remember a made-for- television movie that aired years ago about a couple named Jim and Jenny Stolpa, lost in the snow covered mountains of California.  Ray Bennett, an engineer at the Boeing Plant in Seattle, writes about the story and makes some interesting applications to the church.  This couple and their baby were totally lost, with little or no hope of even surviving.  A rancher and a ranger became the heroes of this story who after more than a week, rescued the couple and their baby.  Ray compares the couple to people of today who are lost in the mountains of skepticism, secularism, and narcissism.  (I would add the mountains of materialism and hedonism in our culture today.)  Ray Bennett’s story about the story will challenge you about the “lost” around you, and how the church is the rescue organization that goes out to the “mountains” to bring back the lost.  Let this story stir your thinking as well!

#60 – Air Date Week of 6/26/2017

Servanthood?

Philippians 2:1-11

This Week – Believe or not, you won’t find a definition on your iPhone or computer if you have the application known as “dictionary dot com.”  It’s simply not there!  You won’t find the term in the vocabulary of a lot of husbands, wives, and single people, as well.  And yet, being a servant is one of the most influential things you and I do in the lives of people.  This was a message given to a Methodist Church in Dayton, Ohio recently.  The Apostle Paul eloquently describes the servant nature of Christ in eleven verses in Philippians.

Servanthood? Podcast

Monday (6/26) – We begin with an illustration of a “lexicographer”, a person who compiles dictionaries.  They are the people who decide what goes into a new dictionary.  Many people struggle with the word servant or servanthood in their own lives.  It’s not only a word that is not in their vocabulary, it’s not in their behavior.   The highest office in the body of Christ is… servant!

Servanthood? Part 1

Tuesday (6/27) – We share an unbelievable story of a couple who embodied servanthood in their marriage, their family, and in their lives in general.  The author of the story said that that couple not only changed who she was, they changed who she wanted to become!  Do you and I have the kind of effect on other people?  Why not?

Servanthood? Part 2

Wednesday (6/28) – We give four things that you and I can physically do in order to serve people.  They’re four things that you and I would never have thought of as suggestions.  We talk about a concept that many people, including Christians have never heard of!  What is it?  God blesses the blessers in life!  When we intentionally bless the lives of others, God blesses us.

Servanthood? Part 3

Thursday (6/29) – We talk about being willing to say “Jesus Christ is Lord”.   There’s a spiritual reason for the need to do that; there’s also a psychological one.  When you come to know Jesus and who He is, you can’t help but call Him Lord.  We talk about that today. This just maybe the most important part of this week’s message.

Servanthood? Part 4

Friday (6/30) – When you and I become servants, the Lord may prompt you to do something that you wouldn’t normally do.  I share a personal story about conducting a funeral with only one person in attendance: the five year- old grandson of the deceased (with his grandfather standing close by).  I hope this piques your curiosity enough to listen!  It may speak to you in a powerful way.

Servanthood? Part 5

  1. What is the Bible referring to when it says living blameless lives without spot or wrinkle???

    • Hi Gary,
      The passage you’re referencing is from Ephesians 5 where the Apostle Paul is talking about the purity and the holiness of the church, the Body of Christ. The NIV Study Bible has this note: “Holiness is the result, NOT the basis, of God choosing us. It is referring to the holiness that is imparted (or credited) to the believer because of what Christ did on the cross.”
      Paul in Romans 3:21-22 states that we have a “righteousness from God, apart from the Law….this righteousness from God comes through faith in Christ Jesus to all who believe.” There’s no boasting on our part, just humble thanksgiving to the God who saved us through His Son!
      Thank you for being a CrossHope listener!

  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?

      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.
