Go Make Disciples Part 1a

April 17, 2020

Jesus told us, “Go into all the world and make disciples!”  That’s our calling as Christians, and the opportunities to do that are all around us.  How are you doing in that department?  If you’re like most, you could use a little encouragement.  And that’s what we’ll have for you today on Sound Doctrine as we open Acts chapter sixteen.

We’ve heard it often, and may have even committed it to memory: God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.  But does that even include conflict?  You bet!  We see an example of that in Acts chapter fifteen today on Sound Doctrine.  Pastor Jeff Johnson points out how God often uses sinful, stubborn people to get the work of ministry accomplished.

We’ll have disagreements and conflicts from time to time.  Whether it’s with our spouse, coworker or someone in the church.  And we’re sure we’re right and the other is wrong! Our flesh can get the best of us at such times!  But today on Sound Doctrine, we’ll be encouraged to hear that God can turn things around, and good can come from these personal conflicts.

In Acts chapter fifteen Paul and Barnabus had a disagreement that led to them going their separate ways.  That happens all the time, even in our day.  But pastor Jeff Johnson doesn’t want us to miss what God accomplished in and through it all!  Over the course of the next few broadcasts we’ll observe how God guided through the conflict, and good came out of it.

We’ve all had our fair share of disagreements and conflict with others, and sometimes it can even lead to a parting of the ways like it did for a couple of guys we’ll meet up with today on Sound Doctrine.  Pastor Jeff Johnson has a look into how God sometimes guides us through the conflict, like He did with Paul and Barnabus.

When we left you last time, pastor Jeff was considering a couple of things concerning Jesus’ death on the cross.  The piercing of His body and the preparation of the body of Christ. We’ll take a look at the placing of the body today, with the realization that He didn’t stay in the tomb!  By the way, that can be your story too.  You too can experience a resurrection from the grave.

All this week we’re looking back to what Jesus accomplished at the cross for us.  And as we’ll see in a moment it was the most painful death imaginable.  As pastor Jeff Johnson draws our attention to the piercing and preparation of the body of Christ let’s allow it to lead our hearts toward grateful praise and adoration.  Our Savior did all of this and more for us!

If you’ve ever been involved in a long-term project... whether it be the restoration of a car, a building project, or a craft of some sort, you know the satisfaction that comes through finishing what you’ve set out to do.  Today on Sound Doctrine, we find Jesus fully accomplishing the work that He came to do.

When someone is about to die, they often say some powerful things!  Today on Sound Doctrine, we’ll hear some of the final words of Christ on the cross, and they are profound!  Pastor Jeff will also draw our attention to what Jesus went through prior to and during the crucifixion, as we open John chapter nineteen.

A third of the Bible is made up of prophecy.  And remarkably, each and every one of them has either already been fulfilled, or will be one day.  When you come to realize that, it should serve as a wakeup call that God is true and so is His Word.  Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll hear the rest of pastor Jeff Johnson’s Palm Sunday message, based in Ezekiel 46.
April 6, 2020
As you may know, Palm Sunday is coming up this Sunday.  And in light of that, here on Sound Doctrine, we’ll set aside some time to learn about the significance of this day.  Pastor Jeff Johnson will point out the prophecy that was spoken hundreds of years before the actual event, was spot on! Just as was foretold, Jesus would come into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey to the East Gate.  Not only that, but the King of Glory is coming again!
