God’s Will for You is the New Covenant

Hear


We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).

Believe


My mom once worked for a time-management company. This company sold day planners and organizers based on the time-management system it had designed. They primarily sold to businesses to help employees be more productive in the workplace. Mom’s company also trained employees to use the system.

Setting goals and objectives were key ingredients to the system’s success. You start with the end in mind. This is the place where a project or task finds its completion. Then you outline the steps you’ll take to get there, assigning each step a due date. The system worked for many, many people. You may be using something similar today to help you accomplish your goals in life.

My mom worked for this company about the same time that I began to discover the grace of God. Mom gave me an organizer. When I tried to use it back then, it always made me think about God’s goals. I wondered what his goals were for my life. In other words, I wanted to know God’s will. I am sure this has crossed your mind a time or two as well.

Knowing God’s will is one of our deepest desires, yet it can be one of our most frustrating quests.

When you hear or read the phrase “God’s will,” what comes to mind? Most would frame their answer in terms of God’s plan for them. They want to know how to choose whom to marry, where to live, and what to do in life. For example, Steve called our radio program to discuss a big decision he was facing. He had two job opportunities and didn’t know which one to take. He explained the situation and then asked, “What is God’s will for me?”

Steve did not want to make a wrong decision. He was stuck in the mud. He was so afraid he might miss God’s perfect will and what that might mean for the future. I can tell you, being stuck in the mud like Steve is not God’s will.

Live


God has called us to a life of freedom that is built on the foundation of God’s promise in Romans 8:28: “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” This is a win-win proposition. But to get there we need to shift our thinking regarding God’s will. Instead of thinking of God’s will in terms of a plan, shift gears and look at it in terms of a legal will. God has a will like that and it is called the New Covenant.

In Him,

About Basic Gospel: Just a Minute!


Hear it. Believe it. Live it.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple, powerful, and life changing. It declares the love of God for mankind. It is the good news people long to hear. Radio delivers it straight to the heart.

But it is not enough just to hear the good news. God wants to make His love a reality in our lives. He wants us to believe it and live it.

At Basic Gospel, we are dedicated to proclaiming the name of Jesus Christ and the profound simplicity of His love and grace.

Our hope is that the clear presentation of the Basic Gospel and the singular focus on the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ will anchor listeners to the love of God and will encourage them Covenant life that is theirs in Christ.

About Bob Christopher


Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, Bob grew up in a Christian home and received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 13. During his high school and college years, Bob struggled with the question of how to live the Christian life. His "roller-coaster" experience taught him that he didn't have what it took to be "God's guy."

After college Bob attended a Bible study in Atlanta where he discovered what he was missing—the life of Jesus Christ. Salvation isn’t a self-improvement program. Salvation is receiving and experiencing new life altogether. Witnessing God give new life to an elderly gentleman before he died put in Bob's heart a passion to share the life-changing message of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible.

During his 30 year ministry, Bob has communicated the truth of the New Covenant in a way that is both practical and easy to apply to everyday life. "The Gospel is more than a message," Bob says. "It is a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ based on His love and truth." Bob is passionate about the basic truths of Christianity, and deeply encouraged by those who are courageous enough to apply them in daily life.

Bob is the author of Simple Gospel, Simply Grace, released by Harvest House Publishers August 1, 2015 and Love is..., published by Basic Gospel. Bob and his wife, Jeanna, live in Denton, Texas, with their children, Caitlin, Coleman, and McKenzie.
