Sun or Son?
This Weekend – Life is a series of choices. When you got up this morning, you decided not only to eat or not to eat; you decided what to eat. You may have opted for protein or carbohydrates, caffeine or a non-caffeine beverage. We all know the drill! If you work, you chose a route to your place of work. You may opt for a different mode of transportation, depending upon what’s available to you. I think you get the point. In a sense, the spiritual choice in life is either in the “sun” and what that term represents to you. Or it’s in the “Son”, meaning Jesus and the Kingdom of God. Is it really that simple? The Bible says we ultimately choose life and death; with life being in the Son of God! What choice have you made? What choice could you make, today?

“THE GOD WE KNOW…. THE GOD WE BELIEVE!“
The God Who Says, Pay Attention!
Message #15 in the Series
Airing Week of 9/21/2020
Jeremiah 37: 1-10
This Week – Do you remember being asked by a parent, a teacher, a spouse, a child to pay attention to what I am saying to you? We all can. God asks the same thing of you and me! In one of the final messages from this book of the Bible, Jeremiah says the Lord God Almighty wants your attention to what He says! Have you ever not listened to what God was trying to impress upon your heart or spirit? If we are honest we all have.
Monday (9/21) – What have you put off in your life recently or routinely? We share a passage from Jeremiah 37, where the Lord chastises His people for not listening to anything He has told them. And yet while the city of Jerusalem is under attack by the Babylonian Army, they beg for Jeremiah to pray for them. Have you ever done something similar in your life? I know I have.
Tuesday (9/22) – There is a power in the Word of God that most people don’t even recognize! It has power physically, emotionally, and spiritually. And yet, the people of God in Jerusalem didn’t listen to anything that the Lord spoke to them through the prophet Jeremiah. Isn’t that hard to believe? Yes, but more bizarre than that was their desire to have Jeremiah pray for them in the “crisis”. We give dramatic illustrations of that in our lives.
Wednesday (9/23) – We share a most powerful story shared by Ravi Zacharias who died in 2020. He told the story of Leighton Ford (brother in law of Billy Graham) when they met in an airport accidentally. Leighton told him that we was given up for adoption by his mother at birth. When he was 40, he found her! The meeting was awkward and uncomfortable. What happened will perhaps move you to tears!
Thursday (9/24) – We share a gut-wrenching story of a woman was married from 20-22 to a man who was arrested and convicted for committing a violent crime that she doesn’t reveal. He was sentenced to decades in prison. She had every legal and logical reason to leave him, but she didn’t. You won’t believe what she did every week until age 50! It is a parable of what the Lord has done for both of us!
Friday (9/25) – We live in a political world of “right wing and left wing”. But no one talks about the spiritual world of “up and down”, meaning our relationship with the Living God. We do today! We share a quote by W.A. Criswell who talks about people coming to Christ with tears. He says God will “break your heart”, not in a cruel way but in the most loving way possible. If you only listen to one day of this program, today is the day!
