Out of the Pit (#992)

Out of the Pit (#992)

Good morning. With the situation we’re all in, some people think life is the pits. Well I don’t think it is. But the scriptures talk about how God took us out of the pit. And that will be one of the things we’ll look at, the other thing we’ll look at is the importance of being patient and waiting on the Lord. That is the thing that is going on now for many of us: that there is a lot of waiting around to see what happens. At least not as much activity as we would have if we could get out and be about. So, these are things we’ve read before and we’ll read them again. but we’re going to look at them today in light of our current situation. OK; Psalms 37…

Resurrection Victory (#991)

Resurrection Victory (#991)

Good morning, here we are on Resurrection Sunday, also called Easter, a day when we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We’re going to read a lot of scriptures today, about not only about his resurrection, but what led up to it. The fact that he shed his blood and his body was broken and what that means for us and that that ultimately led to the resurrection. And, of course the coming of the holy spirit on the day of Pentecost and the life we can now enjoy as God’s children, walking with the power of God. So, let’s start in I Corinthians chapter eleven…

God’s Might (#990)

God’s Might (#990)

Good morning. I, like many of you, like to read the Bible in the morning. And the way I like to do it is get one of these one year Bible apps on the phone; I’ve had them before in book form, where every morning you read say a couple of chapters in the Old Testament, a chapter in the New Testament, and half a Psalm, and a few verses in Proverbs. And throughout the course of a year you go through the whole Bible. That’s the way I like to read the Bible, but there are many ways to do it. And recently I ran across a couple of sections of scripture that I thought I’d share with you today that I think are very appropriate to our big challenge with this virus, which is making things challenging for many people. And the topic we’re going to cover is God’s might. And we’re going to start by going to II Kings 18…
