God is so Good!

How great is God?   Think about it… Think about all the stuff you’ve done that should have really qualified us for gasoline undies and a first class ticket to you know where!  How many times have you done what you wanted to do knowing it was wrong?  How much of the bible do you really know?  Can you define Justification, Sanctification, Substitution and Repentance?  And even if you can, can you live a life worthy of these principles? 

In reality, we are not at all worthy of God’s goodness!  We aren’t worthy of his love!  I alone am selfish in my prayers, often unable (or unwilling) to abstain from sin, arrogant, and too quick to follow my own advice. 

But he still loves me!  He still protects me and elevates me and provides for me!  He is still desperately trying to get me to understand that he is good far beyond my wildest dreams of what he can be in my life.  He has no reason to obligate himself to me.  I mean, I didn’t do anything right, or good.  I am not better than anyone else in anyway.  But if I were the only man on the planet, Jesus still would have died on the cross for my sins.  If your sinful butt were the only human on the planet… Christ would still have died for you.  He even died for those who will never believe in him.  Why, I don’t know, but I’m glad that he did.  He died so to open the door to God to all of us… so that even a hardened Atheist might one day reconsider and receive eternal life! 

If you know that Jesus loves you, please share his love with others.  And if you don’t believe in him, I pray that you will get to know him the way that I am getting to know him.  He is worthy of all of the Glory and Praise.  He WILL change your life.

Song of the Day! 8/24/12

Donnie McClurkin- Stand

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

Song of the Day! 8/23/12

Awesome- Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Choir

More like Song of the Universe!  

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Song of the Day! 8/22/12

Shekinah Glory- The Love Medley
13 Greater love has no one than this: 
to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.  

14 You are my friends if you do what I command.  

15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to

16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit —fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.  

17 This is my command:  
Love each other.

Song of the Day! 8/21/12

Mali Music- Yahweh

How do you keep yourself from focused while teaching 20+ 11 and 12 year old kids?  Play this when they come into the room.  Demons have to flee, lol! 
(Shout out to Christian Schools!)

4 Awesome Bible Teachers on the Go!

My Pastor provides awesome preaching and teaching on Sundays but during the week I get hungry for more!!!  What do I do on the other days of the week?  I turn to these four guys...  
100% of the time; I learn something awesome about God every time!  

1. Joesph Prince 
Joseph Prince - Freedom From Condemnation Leads To Divine Health - 05 Aug 12

Grace, grace, grace, grace, grace!

God is good all the time, and all the time God is good!  If you ever doubt God's presence in your life or don't feel like your worthy of his love, Pastor Prince is the man to listen to.  He emphasizes that the entire bible seeks to express one message... God loves us more than we could ever imagine and he extends grace to anyone who believes in his son.

I DVR his messages or catch them on YouTube but you can find Pastor Prince's schedule for your area here:
2. Alistair Begg
Alistair Begg- Half a Gospel is no Gospel at all

Whatever the bible says is what Alistair Begg is going to say... Only he's going to say it in an awesome Scottish accent!  He can paint a disastrous picture of mans ability to screw things up and then a glorious picture of God's grace to fix it.  Whenever he is on the radio, I'm listening.  And when I am done listening to Alistair Begg, I have learned something about God that I won't soon forget!

1160 AM @ 7:30am (Mon. - Fri)
90.1 FM @ 7pm (Mon. - Fri)

 3. James Ford Jr.
Pastor Ford Compares Us to Superman
The man can make it plain.  He has the insight that comes with a PhD combined with the perspective of a former drug dealer.  He knows firsthand that God offers salvation to anyone regardless of your past or current condition. He's funny, easy to follow, and he speaks in plain English!  Many an evening I have sat in my car outside my house listening and learning from Pastor Ford.  In fact, other people who I didn't think would want to listen to preaching on the radio have stayed out there with me just to hear him.

Sometimes, if I close my eyes, I even think I'm listening to my father again!  

90.1 FM @ 9:30pm (Mon. - Fri)

4. Greg Laurie
A Short Biography of Greg Laurie

The first time I heard Greg Laurie I was at the All State Arena.  Some 10,000 people filled the stadium for a concert that ended with a message from Pastor Laurie.  At the end, hundreds of people filled the stadium floor, either to accept Christ or rededicate their lives to him.  Why was he so effective?  I think it's because he speaks in plain language and makes a lot of sense.  It's not the flashiest approach in the world but it's clear, concise, and entertaining.

AM 1160 @ 7am (Mon. - Fri)

Who do you like to listen to during the week?
