God, Yes, but Why Jesus? Part 1b of 3

January 23, 2012
Some people think that since “all roads lead to Rome,” all religions must lead to God. This is an enormous mistake. If your life was at stake in a hospital, you would want the truth about your condition. Your life is at stake, eternally, and finding the truth about your spiritual condition and its remedy has to be “job one.” Today, we will learn more about why Jesus is the only road that leads to God.

Tolerance is a big deal these days, and we are all for tolerance. But there is one thing many people cannot tolerate. You can believe anything you want, but you cannot say you have the truth without offending those around you. When you say that Jesus is the truth, people become unglued. We will now take a look at why Jesus is the only way to God, modern pundits notwithstanding.

“The word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword.” That is especially true for the words of Jesus, Who knows us through and through. Today we are hearing His words on our motivations, as recorded in Matthew 6. Our job is letting in the light to scatter the darkness in our lives. Too many of us like that darkness.

Surgery is no fun. But the result can be restored health. Spiritual surgery is the same: not fun, but rewarding. Today we will have another session of motivation analysis, as we hear again the words of Jesus in Matthew 6. We will work on understanding and improving our attitudes for why we do what we do.

Good deeds can be seen. Motivations cannot. Why we do what we do is a key focus of Christ’s teaching in Matthew 6. Here we experience some radical surgery as our motives are dissected. Why do we do what we do? For the praise of men? The Great Physician wants to get our service for Him back on track. Today: we go to the clinic to get Christ’s diagnosis.

For some Christians, fasting is about as popular as watching paint dry. Yet we cannot escape Christ’s teaching. He assumed that we would fast, and confined His remarks to the “how and why,” and not the “if.” Foregoing food is a big paradigm shift. Today you are invited to listen for some final thoughts about the benefits and obligations of fasting.

To stop eating for a time has some known health benefits. But in the Christian life, it also has great spiritual benefits. Fasting is not often talked about in a culture where what we usually want is fast food. Today, let us explore further the “why” and “how” of fasting, as Jesus taught in the gospel of Matthew 6.

The holidays are a great time for food. Most of us really enjoy eating, but there are times in a Christian’s life when eating should be the last thing on the agenda. Today, we will set aside that big luncheon we had planned on attending and remind ourselves of Christ’s teaching on the benefits of fasting.

Many of us say grace together before eating a big meal. We are reminded of Who we have to thank for all that we have, so prayer is the vehicle that takes our thanks before His throne. Jesus also taught us to pray in secret, that we might be rewarded openly. Prayer is the means of maintaining close, personal contact with God.
January 11, 2012
We have all heard the Lord’s Prayer, either set to music or recited in church. Jesus gave us these words as a pattern. He gave us this prayer to teach us how to pray. Today, we continue our look at the depth and breadth of meaning latent in these sacred words, and on the way we should each approach God with our petitions.
January 10, 2012
Sometimes Christians wonder if God is listening when they pray. We often repeat our requests, just to make sure He has heard us, but Jesus taught us that God is indeed listening, and in fact, knows what we need before we ask. This being the case, many wonder why we should even pray at all. Therefore, please join us today for more lessons in the school of secret prayer.
