God Yes But Why Jesus? -- Part 2 #1 of 4

August 1, 2007
It is a force you cannot see, but you can certainly feel. It is everywhere, telling people what is OK for them to believe. That force is political correctness, and when it comes to the Christian faith, it is out in full strength. Today: how to witness in a day when people tolerate everything but the truth.

For two thousand years people have been trying to figure out what to do with Jesus Christ. Like Pilate, many reject Him. But others heed His call to believe in Him as the only One who can save them from the sins that separate them from God. Today: more answers to the crucial question many ask: "God yes, but why Jesus?"

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: more about why Jesus is the only road that leads to God.

Tolerance: it 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. And when you say that Jesus is the truth, people become unglued. Today, 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 chapter six. Our job: letting in the light to scatter the darkness in our lives. Too many of us like that darkness. If you want to run life's race ablaze with light, stay with us.

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 chapter six. We will work on understanding and improving our attitudes for why we do what we do. We hope you are motivated to stay with us.

Good deeds can be seen…motivations cannot. Why we do what we do is a key focus of Christ's teaching in Matthew chapter six. 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 chapter six. So tighten your belts and stay with us.

Summer: it is a great time for picnics with hot dogs, chips, baked beans and even watermelon. 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. To learn more, stay with us.
