Death to Self-Will

September 6, 2009
Ask a farmer and he'll tell you that mules can be stubborn. But none of God's creations is as stubborn as mankind. Amazingly, even redeemed men and women try to resist His will. Today, we'll meet a prophet of God who was as stubborn as a mule.

There's no question that the moral fabric of our culture is disintegrating. Marriage is under attack as same-sex partners demand the rights that have always been accorded to heterosexuals. The gay rights agenda is changing our school curriculums and is now a major factor in our national political debate. How should believers deal with this?

For many Christians, worship is equivalent to celebration. Meditation and reflection have given way to watching others perform. The Bible gives us clear guidance on how to worship the Lord. Surprisingly, one of the ways we're to do it is to simply sit quietly and "know that He is God." Today: we'll study another component of what it takes to worship Him acceptably. Listen with us.

Some people think worshipping God is all about how they feel when worshipping. But rather than ask "Did I like the worship service?" our chief concern ought to be "Was God pleased with the worship service?" The Bible explains how God wants to be worshipped, and how we're to approach Him when we gather together. Listen with us.

Many people turn to prayer only during times of crisis. As we've all heard, "There are no atheists in foxholes." But prayer is a key component of a growing Christian life, and in the Bible we find examples for prayer that we can follow, examples that can transform our private moments with God. Listen with us.

As a culture, we're in desperate need of discipline...in our schools, in our churches...in our personal lives. No athlete wins without discipline. In the same way, no Christian can win in life's race without it. Today: take a first step toward getting your life under God's control. Listen with us.

The media has convinced many Americans that unless they buy more things, they'll never be happy. But unseen by the media are the thousands of Christians who know that this life is but a shadow of a life to come, and that spreading the gospel is far more important than padding the retirement account. Today: a challenge from Jesus himself on developing a hunger...a deep desire for people worldwide to come to know Him as Savior. Listen with us.

How is it that a shoe salesman with a grade-school education could eventually preach to enormous crowds on two continents? The only explanation: God chose to use a simple man to reach vast multitudes with the gospel. One day, D. L. Moody heard these words: "The world has yet to see what God can do with a man wholly consecrated to Him." He then vowed to be that man. Today: how God honored that vow.

Over a century ago, those who sought opportunity in America looked to the west. Among them was a young man named Dwight Lyman Moody, who in his youth had no idea what God was going to do through him. Mr. Moody came from Boston to Chicago to make his fortune. He ended up filling the treasure house of heaven with people won to Christ, and then founding both the Moody Church and the Moody Bible Institute.

Another Independence Day marks America's birthday. While some hail increased government activism, others fear that our democratic underpinnings are crumbling away into a new era of tyranny. They see hard-won freedoms melting away, as a war is being lost without a shot being fired. Many are now asking: "Is God on America's Side?"
July 5, 2009
As America's Independence Day approaches, some wonder if the land of the free and the home of the brave is losing its grip on its foundations. Increasingly, our population is politically polarized, moral standards have hit new lows, and economic uncertainty is everywhere. The question could well be asked: "Is God on America's Side?"
