The Peace of God

Paul tells us in Philippians Chapter 4 that we should rejoice in the Lord at all times, not be anxious and receive the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding.  Now which of us would not want total peace?  Yet which of us as Christians truly experiences it?

We have been forgiven of our sins and received the promise of eternity with God in heaven, yet we continue to struggle and worry about this life.  Instead of exhibiting peace we are often filled with angst.

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash today to discuss what the peace of God looks like and how we can enter it and enjoy the life He has given us.

The Tragedy and Glory of Death

There is no greater challenge facing man then the reality of his own mortality.  Hebrews 9:27 tells us it is appointed for a man to die once and then be judged.  Death in the physical realm is inevitable; where a man’s souls goes after death is the real issue of eternal importance.

Born-again Christians, if we believe the promises of God, should not fear death…we should actually welcome it.  But we should also have a sense of urgency about death for those who have not placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch joins Mike and Crash this morning to put the inevitability of physical death into proper biblical perspective: encouraging us to enjoy the life God has given us, not fear our mortal deaths, and have a sense of urgency for unbelievers who still fear death.

A Frustrating and Disappointing Life?

We all get frustrated or disappointed with life at times.  Things do not go as well as we think they should or as well as we think we deserve.  The world tells us we can have our “best life now” and that the world is there for our pleasure and enjoyment, and when it doesn’t work out that way we feel the frustration of life’s daily challenges and obstacles.As disciples of Jesus Christ our attitude should be different.  God’s Word tells us that Jesus has overcome the world on our behalf…so why do we still struggle with life’s challenges and disappointments?  Could it be that our expectations of God are arrogant and self-serving?  Could it be that we have not taken the time to really know the God we claim to worship and trust?Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash to discuss how a lack of knowing and trusting in God’s nature and character can lead to a life of frustration, depression or even defeat.

After Easter: Jesus is Lord and the Gospel must Advance

We are fresh off of Easter weekend as many of us celebrated the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ—God in the flesh who shed His blood for our redemption.  He has freed us from the power of death and sin.  But with the simple yet profound message of the gospel, many Christians are still often confused about what this life should look like.  Did Jesus die so I could be healthy, wealthy, or comfortable in this life?  Are my physical sufferings or trials a sign of a lack of faith?  If the Bible says Jesus has taken our sorrows, then why do we still struggle with sadness and anxiety?Pastor Randy White joins us to look at the promises of Jesus Christ and how we apply them in correct context to our lives as His disciples.

Trust, Confidence and Fear

The life of a disciple of Jesus Christ can be complex at times.  The Bible tells us we should trust God in all matters.  It says we can approach the throne of God in confidence with our petitions.  And yet it also says to fear God.  Trust, confidence and fear:  Not always easy to reconcile all three of those, yet this is the life we are called to as believers, particularly in a world that increasingly hates God and we who are disciples of Jesus.

Finding Hope in a Hopeless World

The “god” of this world, Satan, will do anything he can to take our eyes off of God and think we can find lasting joy and peace in the things of this world.  God tells us that not only is that futile, but that the things of this world will actually lead us to hopelessness and even despair when we trust in them to find meaning and happiness.  Yet we continually try to find purpose, meaning and happiness in wealth, pleasure or entertainment. This morning Dave Wager joins Mike LeMay and Crash Connell to discuss the futility of pursuing happiness and meaning in the things of this world.  We look at the life of Solomon who pursued happiness through intellect, wealth and pleasure only to discover the futility of seeking anything but God.

The Subtle Erosion of Biblical Literacy

Change is sometimes abrupt and immediate, but more often it is comprised of a slow erosion over time as little by little truth is replaced with opinions and emotions.  The serious decline of Christianity in America is the result of decades of subtle changes in what has been and is currently being taught in public education, what is presented in media, and from pulpits that often seem more interested in placating culture instead of speaking God’s truth and shining the light of Christ truth into it.
