Colossians 4:2-4 part 2

April 30, 2019

We’re currently studying Colossians, and we’ll be in chapter four, verses two through four. The subject is prayer - and why we should always seek the Lord first and foremost! Too many of us use prayer as a “last resort”, and that’s a real shame. It’s as if we’re telling God, “OK, I can’t figure this out, so it’s your turn to try”. Is that really the message we want to send to God?

Today, as we continue our series through Colossians, we look at chapter four, verses two through four. Here, the apostle Paul gives some sage advice about prayer. Prayer is a wonderful gift from God, but it’s wasted by far too many Christians. Can your prayer life be described as “vigilant”?

If you’re a parent, I’m sure you could use some encouraging words about raising Godly kids. It’s a tough job, isn’t it? But God has a specific plan for us parents - and He’s always there for us in those times when we become frustrated.  Today’s study is in Colossians chapter three, verses twenty and twenty one.

For the last couple of broadcasts, Al has been discussing Husbands and Wives, and today we’re going to move along to the other members of the family - the kids. Children are a real blessing - and a real challenge. But God knows what’s best when it comes to raising Godly children. I think we can all testify to the fact that there are a lot of parents out there who could really use a refresher course in raising kids properly.

We come back to pastor Al Pittman’s look at Husbands and Wives today, as we consider Colossians three, verses eighteen and nineteen.  Wives submitting to their husbands has been a controversial subject for as long as people have been reading these verses. The only reason there’s any controversy is that people have consistently misinterpreted what Paul’s meaning is.

Today we’re going to bring you the final message from pastor Al Pittman’s passion series. The resurrection of Jesus was without question the most significant event in human history. If Jesus had died on the cross and not risen from the dead, then you and I would still be condemned due to our sins. But the truth is He is risen indeed! Join us for one final look at the most wonderful act of love ever performed - the resurrection of Jesus.

Today we’ll bring you another message in pastor Al’s mini series for the passion week. Jesus suffered a painful and humiliating death on a cross. But if the story ended there, where would we be? We’d still be condemned for our sins. But Jesus rose from the dead! Hallelujah to that!

Today we’ll bring you the conclusion of a message pastor Al Pittman began yesterday, looking at one of the most well-known and important events in the bible - The Lord’s entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Is Jesus riding into town on the back of a colt important? Very much so! It fulfilled Old Testament prophecy and proved once again that Jesus is who He said He is - the messiah.

Today, Pastor Al Pittman begins a four day mini series on the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. We will be looking at the Gospel of John, chapter twelve.  It’s here that John speaks of what many have termed, the Triumphal Entry of Christ.  It is Jesus’ last week on earth, and as prophecy has foretold, He is about to enter the city of Jerusalem on a donkey’s colt.

In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
