Jesus!

This Weekend – There is no greater “defender of the faith” that I know of living today than that of Ravi Zacharias.  He speaks with a clarity and boldness that both convicts and inspires.  World leaders come, world leaders go, which means they die!  They have a start date and an end date to their lives and reign.  Only One came without a beginning and without an end.  His name is Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.  If He is who He claimed to be and what the New Testament claims Him to be, there is nothing in the universe that is more important than knowing Him!  Do you? Does your spouse?  Do your children?

SIMPLE GOSPEL

Message 47 – Airs Week of 3/27/2017

Loving Rules or Loving People?

Luke 13:10-17

CrossHope Logo_Icon_051115

This Week – At some time in our lives, we all face the choice of choosing people over rules, people over structure, and people over systems.  Jesus made His choice evident in Luke 13, when He healed a woman with a physical deformity that had plagued her for 18 years!  The ruler of the local synagogue was more interested in “keeping the rules or customs” than actually releasing this woman from her bondage.  We also talk about what binds us in 2017.

Monday (3/27) – Jesus heals a woman on the Sabbath day (Saturday) who had what doctors today believe was “spondylitis deformans”.  She was permanently bent over by her spinal condition. Jesus simply called her to the front of the synagogue and laid hands on her and said, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”  Jesus speaks to the issue of people’s importance that trumps the importance of things.

Loving Rules or Loving People? Part 1

Tuesday (3/28) – The hero in a book of science fiction that C.S. Lewis  wrote, describes what sin is to beings from another planet that have never heard of that term. His choice of words to describe sin was this.  The word he used was “bent”.  The Lord deals with the “bent” condition in the woman in this passage; He also deals with the spiritual bent condition in you and me!

Loving Rules or Loving People? Part 2

Wednesday (3/29) – We see people every day that are “bent” spiritually in their souls and spirits.  We just don’t recognize their condition, but God does!  We talk about shame being something that creates “bentness” in the lives of men and women today.  We quote a woman who describes her living with shame like being in a prison without walls.  Listen to her story!

Loving Rules or Loving People? Part 3

Thursday (3/30) – We talk about two more forces that “bend” people, although certainly not the only ones.  We talk about guilt and grief.  Many people can relate to guilt as something that can cause “bentness” in our souls, but not grief.  And yet, those who have gone through significant grief would be the first to say that the grief experience caused a “bent” situation for them emotionally and spiritually!  Grief can be a form of bondage.

Loving Rules or Loving People? Part 4

Friday (3/31) – I’ve always been interested in people who come into the ministry from another profession.  We close with the true story of a paramedic who went into the ministry.  His story speaks about the literal “bentness” in the bodies of people he encountered as a paramedic, then discovering the spiritual “bentness” of people that comes from shame, guilt, and grief.  You really need to hear what he writes about; it will speak to your soul about what you’re dealing with right now.  It really will.

  1. 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?

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.
