ONE LIFE: Imagine what you could do for God if you seized the “vapor” called life
John, Pat, and Chris discuss how we are only given one life to live. They discuss Psalm 39:4-5 where David cries out to God, “Show me, Lord my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. You made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure. Many people today are living aimlessly without direction and purpose. The Bible tells us that a wise man gives thoughts to his ways. Is what you are living for worth anything in the kingdom of God. Is there any eternal value to what you are doing with your life. They continue to challenge us to wake up and give our whole life to Jesus. For many it is takes tragedy and illness before they begin to truly live. Avoid tomorrow’s regrets today. Imagine what would happen if you seized the day? Refuse to watch others go after God; go after God yourself like never before. Live a life that will produce the fruit you would be happy to present Jesus when you see Him.
The Authority of the Believer and what Happens when the Church Prays
John, Pat, and Chris discuss the authority the believer has and what happens when the church prays. Of all the things the disciples asked Jesus to teach them. They asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. God empowers us with authority and prayer to transact kingdom business. In Acts 12 we find Peter locked in prison and guarded by 16 guards because of Herod. Herod has been persecuting the church to the point that he had already killed James. However, John, Pat, and Chris continue to discuss how that the church was praying to God for Peter and God heard them and supernaturally led Peter out of prison by an angel. God has given us power and authority to pray and see his kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
Greg, John, and Pat discuss Howard Pittman’s testimony. Howard was a deputy, planning to run for sheriff, as he pastored a church and one night he had a heart attack and while laying on the operating table, he was taken to heaven by an angel. Once he was in heaven he realized he was doing it all wrong. He was preaching a placebo gospel. This amazing encounter shook him from “religion” and he asked God to give him more time to make things right. It’s not about pleasing man. It’s about pleasing God.
