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!

SIMPLE GOSPEL SERIES
#56 – Air Date Week of 5/29/2017
Rich, Young, and Lost!
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
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
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
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
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!
