Stolen, Burnt, Choked or Fruitful! Which one are You?
LISTENNOW! Greg, John, Pat discuss how we can end up stolen, burnt, choked or fruitful. They discuss the parable of the sower in Mark 4:1-20 describing how the word of God is sown in the soil “hearts” of men and what happens. The word that is sown on the good soil is the one that produces thirty, sixty, and some a hundred times what was sown. The question is what is being sown in your garden. God has called us to bear fruit in our life that glorifies and brings honor to him. The word of God tells us in John 15 that everything in the kingdom gets the knife. If we don’t bear fruit we will eventually be cut off but also in order for us to bear more fruit in our lives we get pruned. Either way it is better to have a fruitful life for the Lord then to be stolen, burnt, or choked.
Jesus our Example: Jesus The GREAT Organizer
Greg, John, and Pat continue their discussion on Jesus our example; Jesus the great organizer. When Jesus ministered on earth he didn’t come to organize but to allow himself to be organized under the original supreme organizer God the Father. The Bible tells us that Jesus only did what he saw his father doing. Jesus spent time daily in prayer getting direction from the father. The Father “organized” his life. Even when Jesus stood before Pilate he truly understood who had the true authority and He is our example on how we should allow Him to “organize” us under Him.
Speaking Truth in Love- It matters how you Treat People
Greg, John, and Pat discuss the importance of speaking the truth in love and how it matters how we treat people. They mention two books written by Rick Joyner, The Call and The Torch and the Sword which are books that share prophetic insight for the church as well as sharing practical wisdom and the many spiritual implications of how we treat other people. It matters how we treat people. We don’t want to spend a lot of money towards reaching people for Christ so that when they come to the Lord we stop investing in them. We don’t want to treat the people we interact with in our public life better or differently than those in our own families. How we treat people is how we are treating Jesus. They continue to discuss how there should be no difference in how we speak and treat others. The Bible tells us in Matthew 25:40
‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” speaking of Jesus. However we treat people is exactly how we are treating Jesus. It matters how we treat people for everyone is created in the image of God.
Ecuadorian President Threatens to Resign if Abortion is made LegalJohn, Greg, and Pat discuss how the pendulum is swinging back to God’s way in terms of honoring the sanctity of life. There have been several laws passed in the United States, such as the “Baby Alive Bill” that passed in Florida that honors the life of babies. They further discuss how the Christian Post reported that Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa threatened to resign from his country’s leadership if abortion is made legal. Since Roe vs. Wade in 1973 there have been over 50 million abortions, sacrifices, and murders of innocent babies. Join us and many others who are praying a simple yet powerful prayer “Dear God end abortion send revival.” They continue to share that if you have had an abortion that God can and will forgive you. If you are contemplating an abortion there are other options and there is help available to assist you. You can avoid a later regret of aborting a baby today by seeking help
