The church at Corinth was just like any church today. May the themes of diversity, unity, freedom, and love make an indelible mark on your life as we close our study of 1 Corinthians. Paul ends his letter with a reminder to be cheerful givers and to let all that you do be done with love. And on that high note, we'll say goodbye to the church at Corinthfor now.

The heart, life, and sins I must primarily, centrally, and perpetually examine are those of my own! The person I must judge is myself!

The Apocalyptic Gospel Podcast
In this episode, we explore the parable of the wheat and the tares/weeds, the parable of the mustard seed, and the parable of the leaven. In light of common Jewish apocalyptic expectations, these parables all communicate a common theme of the flourishing of the wicked in this age and God's patient response toward evil. Rather than positive parables speaking of the growth of a spiritualized kingdom, these parables are primarily negative in tone meant to indict pride and hypocrisy in light of the coming judgment. Show notes Reviewing the phrase “the kingdom of heaven” and the agricultural metaphor - Tg. Ezekiel 7:6-7; Tg. Zechariah 14:9; 4 Ezra 8:41 (5:37) Interpreting the parable of the weeds - Matthew 13:36-43 (12:20) The parable is not a radical redefinition of Jewish apocalyptic eschatology - 2 Baruch 54:15-21 (20:57) The parables of the yeast and mustard seed - Matthew 13:31-33; Luke 12:1; 1 Corinthians 5:6-8; Galatians 5:7-9; Daniel 4:12; Ezekiel 17:23; 4 Ezra 4:30-31 (23:29) “Growing”, “expanding”, and “spreading” are words never associated with “the kingdom” - Isaiah 9:7 (34:51)

Today's Promise: 2 Corinthians 5:7 As a growing Christian, you walk by faith. You focus on the eternal unseen world, not the temporal, seen world. Walking by faith is walking in the will and direction of the Lord. You live in obedience to God's Word and promptings of the Holy Spirit. The evidence of living by faith is your prayer life. You don't live like the rest of the world because you know it's not about what you can see, but about your faith in Christ that matters.

Growing In God with Gary Hargrave
The book of Daniel contains visions of spiritual forces causing climactic events in the earth. But our focus cannot be on those events. Whatever we are facing, whatever is coming upon the earth in our time, the main point of these visions is that the saints of the Highest One will receive the Kingdom and will possess the Kingdom for all ages to come. Our focus must be on knowing the Lord. That will turn loose the greatest force in the days ahead. Show Notes: The stories, the visions, and the prophecies that we read in the Scriptures are written as examples to us and have practical application for us today. The book of Daniel, for one, contains several visions that show the progression of spiritual battles, both natural and spiritual, down through the ages up until the possession of the Kingdom. Instead of trying to interpret these visions, I want to focus on the practical instructions they provide for us as believers in the spiritual battles we face today. In his visions Daniel saw four beasts coming up out of the water. And we know that these four beasts represent four kingdoms or governments that will be on the earth. These governments are seen as battling against Israel and against God in the establishment of His Kingdom. We can look in terror at these kingdoms that are coming upon the earth to control and to destroy, but the true emphasis of these Scriptures needs to be burned in our hearts. The emphasis of these visions is not on the difficult events taking place in the earth. The emphasis is on the fact that the saints possess the Kingdom. Because of this, satan comes directly against the saints to wear us down. Therefore, we must press in to know the Lord because those who know the Lord will be strong, will take action, and will have the discernment and understanding to help others make it through these times. Key Verses: • 1 Corinthians 10:11–12. “They were written for our instruction.” • Daniel 7:3–14. “His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away.” • Daniel 7:15–18. “The saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever.” • Daniel 7:19–25. “That horn was waging war with the saints and overpowering them until … the saints took possession of the kingdom.” • Daniel 11:32–33. “Those who have insight among the people will give understanding to the many.” • Daniel 12:9–10. “Many will be purged, purified and refined, … but those who have insight will understand.” Quotes: • “If we know the Father, if we know the Son, if we know the Holy Spirit, we are going to be able to display strength, and we are going to be able to take action.” • “The faith is knowing that God is setting up His Kingdom, and whatever we're experiencing for right now is very short-lived because the emphasis and the focus of this whole time is the judgments to come as God sets up his Kingdom on the earth.” • “The enemy's forces are going to be ignorant, but God's people are going to be strengthened and have insight.” Takeaways: 1. The Messiah will come during this time and establish His Kingdom on the earth, but there will be battle leading up to that Kingdom, and it will be specifically focused on wearing out the saints through lies and deceptive words. People will be corrupted and be turned to godlessness by virtue of this deception. Yet the people that know their God will display strength and take action; they will stand firm and prevail, and they will have insight into what God is doing. 2. The people who have insight will cause others to understand. It will be a great time of impartation and teaching and seeing many come to the truth. There will be true prophets and vessels of God's truth and wisdom who will be able to impart to many the truth of God's Word. 3. There will be persecution against God's people, but the Lord will strengthen us and allow us to walk in faith during these days no matter what we face. We thank the Lord for the instruction and wisdom contained in His Word that enable us to walk through these times as faithful saints of the Lord.
When I became a mental health counselor, I had no idea what to expect. What unfolded was difficult to accept... but forever changed the way I viewed others. I learned firsthand that some people who might appear “happy” in their everyday life are actually experiencing mistreatment from those they trust most..From the outside, we might never dream that others in our lives are undergoing such strife. I say this only to acknowledge that enduring a harmful situation anywhere—at home, on a sports team, or even at church—is sometimes a reality. If this reality has crept into your world, or a friend's, please seek help! Reach out to a favorite teacher, school counselor, or another trusted adult. There IS a way out, and you don't need to go it alone. Yes, it's hard to bring dark things into the light—and more than one try is sometimes required—but remember: God knows the truth. “Even the darkness will not be dark to you [God]... for darkness is as light to you” (Psalm 139:12)..Life can be unfair, unjust, and painful. However, hope and healing and restoration are also real. So, for whoever may be suffering, do not bear this heaviness alone. Jesus always calls us to carry one another's burdens (Galatians 6:2)..Moreover, Jesus knows unjust suffering too—thrust on Him by others' wrongdoing (Isaiah 53). He truly understands our pain. And though our situation may remain unexplained, God, the Eternal One, “knows the way that [we] take,” and He extends His “everlasting arms” to us (Job 23:10; Deuteronomy 33:27), creating hope where once there was none, promising us His presence, and promisingthat the world will one day be made right through His death and resurrection (Revelation 21:1-5). • G. Kam Congleton.• Read Psalm 72:14, Proverbs 11:9, and 1 Corinthians 13:4-6. God is not okay with injustice and mistreatment. If you are experiencing mistreatment—whether it be verbal, physical, sexual, or neglectful in nature—please reach out for help. In addition to telling a trusted adult, and if you don't already have a therapist, one option is to use the Focus on the Family Counseling Service. In the United States, call 1-855-771-HELP (4357) weekdays 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) to set up an appointment. In Canada, call 1-800-661-9800 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) and ask to speak with the care associate. .Even the darkness will not be dark to you... for darkness is as light to you. Psalm 139:12 (NIV)
Moses asked God an astute question when he walked up the mountain to get the Ten Commandments: How shall it be known that I have found favor in your sight, I and your people? Is it not in your going with us, so that we are distinct, I and your people, from every other people on the face of the earth? Sanctified means separate, or distinct. Are you?

God is saying, 'When you misperceive Me, you call It doubt, you call It thoughts, you call It ego,you call it yourself, but It's Me. Every chance you get, silently feel- 'I Am not 'me', This Appearance is not happening,only Love is here.'And you will be absent from the body and present with Me.* You will dissolve in Me. There's only Me. Wherever you perceive that struggle, there's only Me. Where you perceive that office, that Zoom screen,(t)here's only Me. Be not afraid, It is I, and I will live your Destiny.'* “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” – 2 Corinthians 5:8 "He said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid."-John 6:20 "I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.

Follower of One : Missions For The Rest Of Us
Have you ever seen a triumphal procession? "But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere." 2 Corinthians 2:14 ESV I read that a Roman Triumph would occur whenever a Roman army defeated more than 5000 in battle and took new territory. The procession would be huge, with the leader in a gold chariot. Roman priests would burn incense to their gods and one commentator even said sometimes the incense smoke would obscure the procession. Paul is reminding the Corinthians that God is leading us in a triumphal procession, too. And we're the incense. In the verses that follow he talks about how the incense was a sweet aroma to the victors but a sickening aroma to the losers. Today, let's remember we're in God's victorious procession. We're celebrating his victory. We're on the winning team. And our lives are to be that incense. We are different. Our job is to live a life that can't be explained without Jesus. Paul says that Jesus spreads the fragrance through us. He's using us. He sealed the victory. This isn't as much about our wants and desires as it is about us remembering this is his victory. We get to celebrate in it. But he did the heavy lifting. Remember, too, to pray for others in the family of God. We have 2 groups doing Marketplace Mission Trips if you listen to this podcast on or near the air date. Ask God to protect them, and help them celebrate the work Jesus is doing in and through them. God's working in and through all of us if we'll cooperate. We begin by punching in. Check out more about our Marketplace Mission Trips and take your friends on one.

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:35-44"What's that?" asked Nevaeh when her brother showed her a pale green object dangling from a branch. "Isn't it cool?" said Dakota. "It's called a chrysalis, and there's a caterpillar in there. Or at least, he used to be a caterpillar."Nevaeh frowned. "I don't like caterpillars." As she went into the house, she saw her mother wiping tears from her eyes. "What's the matter?" Nevaeh asked."I just got a phone call," Mom said softly. "Grandma Carter died.""Oh no!" Nevaeh burst into tears. "I don't want her to die!"Mom took her into her arms. "I know, honey. This is a sad day, but we can find comfort in knowing Grandma is in heaven with Jesus."Nevaeh and Dakota had never known anyone who had died. They were a little nervous when they went with their parents to the funeral home and walked up to the casket where Grandma lay. "She looks like she's asleep," said Nevaeh softly. The next day, the kids attended the funeral service with their parents, and after the service, they all went to the cemetery.Nevaeh was quiet as they sat on the patio that afternoon. "I thought Grandma was in heaven, but they put her in the ground," she said at last. As she spoke, Dakota came over carrying the branch with the chrysalis dangling from it. Only a thin, clear film remained. "Look," he said. "This is just an empty shell now."Mom nodded. "The caterpillar spun a chrysalis around itself. After a while, it burst open and a beautiful butterfly came out.""I love butterflies!" said Nevaeh. "They're much more beautiful than caterpillars.""That's a good example of what has happened to Grandma," said Dad. "Remember how sick she was? She has left her body, and now it's like an empty chrysalis. It was buried in a grave today, and Grandma's soul has gone to be with Jesus. But one day Jesus will resurrect Grandma's body and make it like new. When that happens, Grandma will have a new body that will never get old or sick and will never die. Jesus will give us new bodies then too--bodies that will last forever!"Just then a butterfly fluttered past Nevaeh's nose. "Look!" she exclaimed. "A caterpillar in his new body." -Barbara J. WestbergHow About You?Has someone you love died? The Bible teaches that those who trust in Jesus go to be with Him when they die. Though their bodies are buried in a grave, they're not in them anymore. One day, when Jesus resurrects all Christians, He will give us wonderful new bodies--bodies much better than the old ones. Just like caterpillars get new bodies as butterflies, Jesus promises to raise Christians' bodies and make them new so they last forever. Today's Key Verse:Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. (NLT) (1 Corinthians 15:43)Today's Key Thought:Christians will have new bodies

An upscale restaurant in Manhattan's iconic Rockefeller Plaza, filled with Wall Street "movers and shakers." A dusty reservation basketball court, surrounded by impoverished, hope-starved Native American young people. I've ministered in both worlds, within weeks of one another. Worlds that - at first glance - seem to be really far apart. But when it comes to what God is doing, these divergent worlds share some striking - and instructive - similarities. The "natives" in both worlds are hard to reach with the Good News of Jesus. The success, the drive of those marketplace men and women spawn a confident, self-reliant fa�ade that doesn't open up easily. The young people on that reservation; they've been hardened by years of pain and a strong belief that "Jesus is the white man's God." But - amazingly - there's a great move of God in both of these hard-to-reach cultures. I've seen it! And many are choosing to follow Jesus. The secret of these breakthroughs reveals a simple, but powerful, strategy for helping people from any culture or subculture find our Jesus. People from a tribe are the key to reaching lost people in that tribe. I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "Your Tribe, Your Mission." In Manhattan, it's Wall Street men and women reaching Wall Street men and women; opening their heart to share the brokenness in their lives and relationships, and the Savior who was broken for them so they could be healed. On the reservation, it's Native American young people reaching Native American young people. Through our ministry's all-Native, On Eagles' Wings teams reservation young people are pouring out the desperation and despair of lives surrounded by abuse and addiction and then sharing how "a brown-skinned, tribal man named Jesus changed everything." I'm convinced that tribal rescue is the key to breaking through to countless lost people in every culture and every subculture. Moms listen to moms. Soccer players listen to soccer players. Hunters listen to hunters. Cancer survivors to cancer survivors. We're all in a tribe. You're in an occupational tribe, a recreational tribe, an educational tribe, a generational tribe, maybe an associational tribe like the PTA, the booster club, the country club. So whatever tribe you're in, you are the best possible Gospel messenger to people in your tribe. You face the same stresses, you talk the same language, you share the same experiences. All those are bridges you can cross to open their heart to Jesus. Do you understand you've been positioned by God to represent Christ in your tribe as no one else could. No evangelist, no pastor, no professional God salesman. It's you, because you're one of them. In fact the Bible puts it this way in our word for today from the Word of God, "We are Christ's ambassadors" (2 Corinthians 5:20). What's that mean? Well, an ambassador - a chosen representative assigned to a particular place. You've been assigned to your personal world to be the voice and the face of Jesus there. This is an outreach strategy that any church can employ. Identify what tribes you have represented in your congregation. Take that as God's clue as to where your church should be targeting an outreach strategy. And then mobilize and equip your "tribal ambassadors" to claim their tribe for Christ. This isn't new. When Jesus wanted to reach Samaritans, He didn't just go blazing into their village. He reached a Samaritan woman at a well. She told her tribe about Jesus and the Bible says, "and many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the woman's testimony" (John 4:39). People from a tribe listened to someone else from that tribe. So just think what could happen in our country if every believer claimed their tribe for Christ and stepped up to be the face and the voice of Jesus there. Praying for and looking for God-given opportunities to use their tribal credentials as a bridge to tell about the difference Jesus Christ makes for someone just like them. There's a world of "Samaritans" out there who would trust our Jesus if only they could hear about our Jesus from someone from their tribe. Like you!

Chinese medicine has practiced pearl powder exfoliation for thousands of years, using ground pearls to scrub away dead cells resting at the top of the skin. In Romania, rejuvenating therapeutic mud has become a widely sought-after exfoliant that’s purported to make skin youthful and glowing. All over the world, people use body care practices they believe will renew even the dullest of skin. The tools we’ve developed to maintain our physical bodies, however, can only bring us temporary satisfaction. What matters more is that we remain spiritually healthy and strong. As believers in Jesus, we’re given the gift of spiritual renewal through Him. The apostle Paul wrote, “Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day” (2 Corinthians 4:16). The challenges we face daily can weigh us down when we hold on to things like fear, hurt, and anxiety. Spiritual renewal comes when we “fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen” (v. 18). We do this by turning our daily worries over to God and praying for the fruit of the Holy Spirit—including love, joy, and peace—to emerge anew in our lives (Galatians 5:22). When we release our troubles to God and allow His Spirit to radiate through us each day, He restores our souls.

This Is That With Steve Berger
If our country is ever to come back into alignment with God, we MUST recognize that repentance is our only hope. But some leaders today don't believe it's even necessary for salvation! In the second part of Pastor Berger's series on repentance, he shares four foundational truths about what repentance is, why we need it and how it blesses us in return. Don't miss today's show!

The Bible is black and white on some topics, but there are many things that are not directly addressed, so they have gray areas. In this message, we look at 1 Corinthians and list four questions to answer when you're facing gray area topics.
Bible Reading: Psalm 121:1-8; Philippians 4:6-7Pink and yellow balloons hung around the living room. Blue and lavender streamers twisted their way across the ceiling. A big sign reading "Happy 8th Birthday, Maddie" was hanging over the sofa. Many of Maddie's aunts, uncles, and cousins were already there when Grandpa and Grandma arrived. Grandma immediately went around the room and gave everyone a hug. But Grandpa stood by the door, a lost, confused expression on his face. "Who are these people?" he asked. "They're your children and grandchildren, dear," said Grandma. Maddie noticed that Grandma sounded like she was talking to a small child. I guess that's because Grandpa has Alzheimer's disease and forgets a lot of things, she thought. Maddie walked over to her grandpa and slipped her hand into his. "I'm glad you came to my party."Grandpa looked down at Maddie, and a soft smile spread over his face. He patted her head clumsily, and for a moment she thought he was going to be like he'd always been. But then he said, "Is this your house, little girl?" "Of course, Grandpa," Maddie replied. "I'm Maddie--remember? You've been here lots of times." When Maddie and her dad were cleaning the kitchen after the party, Maddie closed the dishwasher door with a bang. "Why does Grandpa have to have Alzheimer's?" she muttered. "I can't think of a single reason why God would let it happen." "Neither can I," said Dad, and Maddie's eyes widened. "That surprises you, doesn't it?" said Dad. Maddie nodded. "Grandpa's Alzheimer's disease is sad," Dad said, "and just as he often can't understand what's happening around him, we sometimes can't understand why such sad things happen in life. God doesn't ask us to understand, but He promises to be with us in difficult times. Jesus understands our pain and sadness, and He's there to strengthen and comfort us when we're hurting. One day, when He comes again to get rid of sin, sickness, and death forever and make all things new, He will wipe all our tears away." "So I guess I just have to keep trusting Jesus even when I feel like crying," said Maddie. "He'll help me through it.""Yes," said Dad. "And He will cry with you." -Carol J. BrookmanHow About You?Do you wonder why God has allowed something difficult to happen in your life? He doesn't always reveal why things happen, but He wants you to trust Him even when you go through difficult times. Jesus understands what you're going through, and He wants to comfort you and help you. As you trust Him, you'll find that His grace is more than enough. He will carry you through hard times until the day your tears are gone forever.Today's Key Verse:My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness. (NKJV) (2 Corinthians 12:9)Today's Key Thought:Keep on trusting Jesus

This is the sermon outline, which Mark borrowed from Voddie Baucham and Don Carson: Two gates Two ways Two crowds Two destinies Here are discussion questions that go with the message: Two Gates: 1) Have someone read Matthew 7:13-14. What are things that will change in a person who is truly born again? 2) Have someone read 2 Corinthians 5:14-17. What are ways Christianity in the South has tended to water-down the new birth? Two Ways: 3) Have someone read Colossians 3:5-11. What makes the wide path so attractive and easy to follow? 4) Why is the narrow path so challenging and difficult? How can we faithfully persevere to the end? Two Crowds: 5) Have someone read 1 Corinthians 15:33-34. Why does bad company have such a negative effect on us? How do we continue to love lost people without being influenced poorly by them? 6) How has being part of a body of faithful believers (the "few" who are on the narrow path) been a help to you personally? Two Destinies: 7) Have someone read Psalm 73 verses 3-4 and 16-19. How does seeing the future help us not envy or imitate the wicked? 8) Have someone read Luke 13:22-30. What will "destruction" mean for those on the wide path? What will "life" mean for those on the narrow path? How can this spur us on in faithfulness? You can watch the message here.
A Bigger Life Prayer and Bible Devotionals with Pastor Dave Cover
In Christian meditation, we are re-aligning ourselves vertically. We're remapping our horizontal realities with a vertical view/perspective. Enabling us to embody that vertical perspective replaces anxiety and tension with a calm confidence. If your podcast app is set to skip the silent sections, disable that in your podcast app for this podcast. Psalm 143:1–5 ESV 1 Hear my prayer, O LORD; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness! 2 Enter not into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous before you. 3 For the enemy has pursued my soul; he has crushed my life to the ground; he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead. 4 Therefore my spirit faints within me; my heart within me is appalled. 5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands. 2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 13:1 If I speak with the tongues of mankind and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give away all my possessions to charity, and if I surrender my body so that I may glory, but do not have love, it does me no good. 4 Love is patient, love is kind, it is not jealous; love does not brag, it is not arrogant. 5 It does not act disgracefully, it does not seek its own benefit; it is not provoked, does not keep an account of a wrong suffered, 6 it does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 it keeps every confidence, it believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away with; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there isknowledge, it will be done away with. 9 For we know in part and prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away with. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully, just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Have you ever been the new kid at school, or the latest hire at work? Maybe you've been first time visitors at church after a big move, or the newest neighbors on the block. Being the new guy or gal may be a little nerve-wracking, but it's also an opportunity to reinvent yourself. It's a chance to cultivate new habits, and build a great reputation without the baggage of your old life weighing you down. When we accept Jesus into our heart, we receive a new life. It's a life that's filled with hope, purpose, and joy. But embracing this new life also means letting go of our old ways and the things that held us back before we met the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” It's not always easy to change our habits and let go of the things that once defined us. But when we surrender to Christ, we receive a new identity in Him. We become new creations, free from the chains of our past. As believers, we are called to embrace the new life Christ offers us. God asks us to let go of our old ways, in order to be the person He created us to be. Following Him is both a gift, and a choice we make again and again. Let's pray. Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of new life! We don't have to be tied down by our old ways, or burdened by our former sins, because you have made us new. In Jesus' name, amen.

What does "Amen" mean, anyway, and why does it matter to Jesus followers today? "For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory." 2 Corinthians 1:20 ESV Amen is a Hebrew word that was just kind of ported to Greek and English. The Jews were instructed to say Amen as if something was true, or finished or absolutely correct in God. Amen is often translated "truly," in scripture, too. In fact, many place in John, the words "truly, truly" or "verily, verily" are actually translations of "amen, amen." Amen is like us acknowledging to God that something is true or complete because of what God has done. In this passage, Paul, the apostle, is telling the Corinthians that Jesus is the Amen of God. Everything is complete, true, finished in Jesus Christ. How does this matter for us at work? I don't know about you but I get very tense when deadlines are approaching or when the pressure mounts. I can get tense and react sharply. I even do it now, when I have a deadline pending. This is a persistent problem for me. I want to remember that Jesus did his work. Everything is "amen" in Jesus. He has completed God's work. I can relax. And I can be someone who relieves pressure at work. How can you rest in amen at work? How can you bring grace and peace to your workplace today? Ask God to show you and then get to work. Also, take a minute and pray for this ministry. God has finished his work. We want to rest in him, and be a blessing to people.

Facebook and other social media have afforded us the wonderful privilege of knowing more about our friends than we ever really wanted to. "I just blew my nose. Thought you all should know." Best of all, we can share our "selfies"; pictures of me, taken by me. Because it's all about me, right? No! Well, at least it's not supposed to be. I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I'd like to have A Word With You today about "The Lonely World of 'Selfies.'" One TV documentary said, "There is an epidemic of loneliness today." Well, that's true. Even in a world that, in one way, is more connected than ever. Superficially, but strangely lacking in the kind of deep human connection that satisfies our love-starved hearts. Life was never meant to be a "selfie" existence. Where it's all about how I look, what I'm doing, what I'm feeling, what I need. The problem is a world that's only as big as me is a world that's too small to live in. Years ago, a young man wrote to Mother Teresa with a pretty compelling question. This woman who had buried her life in the needs of the most broken in Calcutta's slums was clearly the one who would know the answer. He asked, "What can I do to have a significant life like you have?" Mother Teresa's postcard reply was only four words: "Find your own Calcutta." Or, "Find some people who need you and be there for them." You don't have to go to Calcutta to find them. They're in the local senior citizens' facility, or they may be kids struggling in school who could flourish if someone would take time to tutor them or mentor them. "Calcutta" may be those homeless people, or the unemployed, or the medically sidelined people down the block. In fact, you may not have to look any farther than the people you work with or play with or go to school with. On any given day, someone in your world needs a smile, or a hug, a compliment, a word of encouragement, a listening ear, or just to be noticed or included. It's a matter of recalibrating your radar to see the people for whom you could make a difference. But self-sacrifice is not without personal benefit. Because the fastest way to get out of your pit is to pull someone else out of theirs. And the best antidote for being lonely is to be there for someone else. So, turn your camera lens the other way to make your life a "youie" instead of a "selfie." where the other person is the picture; where your life mission is simple; make each person feel like they matter. In our word for today from the Word of God, in 2 Corinthians 5:15, God says, "Christ died for all that they should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and rose again." See, we're not supposed to live for ourselves anymore. Years ago, when I occasionally spoke for the New York Giants chapels, I had the privilege of meeting their defensive end, George Martin. A great football player, yes. In fact, he had a Super Bowl ring and all. But an even greater man, because he always made other people the big deal instead of himself. He spoke one year for our local high school football team. He had just been named the NFL's Man of the Year for his work with sick and dying children along with a bunch of charitable causes. It wasn't the only award he received for "finding his own Calcutta." He told our players, "You need to know the real reason I'm doing these things. I'm just copying my hero. My hero is Jesus Christ." He went on to explain how Jesus forgot about Himself to give us a chance to go to heaven someday and have a relationship with the God whose love we were made for. For that to happen, the wall between us and God had to come down. And it could only come down if the penalty for us running our own life was paid; a death penalty. The Bible says, "The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Living forever instead of punishment forever; heaven instead of hell. The Bible says, "the Son of God loved me and gave Himself for me" (Galatians 2:20). That's a love you need to experience for yourself. You can begin that relationship, a love relationship with Him, this very day. Just say, "Jesus, I'm yours." Go to our website. We can help you know how you can be sure you belong to Him. That website is ANewStory.com. Life is never the same once you've experienced for yourself the transforming love of Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 13:1-7 Are you living the more excellent way? 1. The Necessity of Love v.1-3 2. The Identity of Love v.4-6 3. The Activity of Love v.7-8 Some would say love is a passion, a pursuit, a pattern, or even a principle to live by. But love is a PERSON and His name is Jesus!

Do you help when you pray? How is praying for someone helping? "You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many." 2 Corinthians 1:11 ESV By praying, many will give thanks. It seems Paul suggests here that prayer is effective. By praying God will bless. And because they prayed, they will give thanks. Just in this one verse, we see that God, who is doing his thing, allows us to join him through prayer. As a result, we get to celebrate what he does. We end up closer to God by praying and asking God to work in a situation. We also are more likely to see him work in that situation because we're praying. God is doing his thing. but he wants us to join him. We put skin on the works of God. When we take part in his work, and we celebrate what he does, we help others see him. We help them move one notch closer to Jesus. By actively praying for others, we join God in the work he is doing. I wouldn't have designed it that way. Often, I only want God to do what I say. Then I miss out on his goodness, his creativity, and his glory. I enjoy those much more than my own ideas. Who do you need to pray for today? Ask God to show you how to pray for the people you will interact with today. God will give you glimpses of the work he's doing, and then you will get to celebrate. Your joy can be directly traced back to your prayers. Spend more time praying and let me know if it doesn't work. When we truly focus on God, we must see his glory because he's doing his thing, not ours. Why not join our online community. We pray for one another in there, too. It's a key way that God puts us to work. Check our community out at https://community.followerofone.org. thanks.
Hello, Neighbor! The Peaches and the Pod Ninja are having a little marital dispute about smoking cigars in the middle of the kitchen. Who's being the joy-killer here?Next: If we had any respect for your opinion, we would adopt the opinion for ourselves... But we don't respect opinions we don't share. Boy-oh-boy, Pkarlgh, this statement really gave some people heartburn. What is it about the concept of "respecting opinions" that people are so willing to fight over it? We think the phrasing is unclear, and we need to stop telling people we respect their opinion when we actual mean: "We respect your humanity no matter what opinions you hold."We respect the individual who is created in God's image, despite the fact that he or she holds an opinion that we DON'T respect. And what about where Paul tells us (in 1 Corinthians) that some things aren't worth fighting about? Well, we share that opinion--and so we respect it. Finally: This boils down to an authority issue. Who do we trust, when we don't get the opinion we want from someone else? Do we keep shopping around for different doctors or different judges or different pastors (or Gospel-writers) who we think will agree with us? The more immature you are, the more Bosses you need to keep you safe... Just take this example from the McKinney children almost killing themselves.

Summary: I have slowly come to better understand the reality of the spiritual battle we face in Ephesians 6:12. Many years of focusing on Bible doctrine caused me to only pay lip service to the idea that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers.” I have always acknowledged this battle, but I never conceived of it as spiritual wickedness manifesting itself in a physical way. The Lord is revealing to me just how physical these principalities truly are!This Episode brought to you by: Our Premium Subscribers or “Seekers” William C.Aimee J.Bruce C.Scriptures:All Scripture references are from the King James Version of the BibleExodus 20:5-6, 1 Corinthians 10:20, Genesis 3:14, Genesis 4:11-12, Deuteronomy 28:15, Deuteronomy 28:41, Malachi 4:5-6, John 9:1-2, Mark 7:25, Mark 9:17-29, Hebrews 8:12, Malachi 4:2, Jeremiah 17:14, 2 Corinthians 12:7-10, 2 Corinthians 12:7-10Takeaway:I have decided to pray and ask for deliverance from generational curses and unclean spirits in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Can we not ask the Lord to heal us today? Can we not seek to break the cycle of a generational curse or portal that was opened that led to demonic oppression in our lives? Even Paul sought to pray for deliverance from a demonic entity, a messenger sent from satan to buffet him. It's up to the Lord to heal us, if it is in accordance with HIs will.Links:Website: https://biblemysteriespodcast.comSubscribe: https:/https://biblemysteries.supercast.comEmail: email@example.comDonate: ttps://secure.subsplash.com/ui/access/BDJH89
Who, or what, are you living for? It's a big question. You might be considering your spouse or children. Maybe your career is a high priority. If you are an artist, writer, or musician, you might feel you live for the pursuit of creativity. Today, we want to remind you of the beautiful message in 2 Corinthians 5:15, which tells us that Christ died for everyone so that those who receive new life through Him will no longer live for themselves, but for the Lord. It's easy to get caught up in our own lives and forget the bigger picture. We often focus on our own desires, wants, and needs, forgetting that we were created to glorify God. When we choose to make Christ the center of our lives, we find true purpose and fulfillment. 2 Corinthians 5:15 says, “Christ died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.” Living for Christ means putting Him first in all areas of our lives. It means making Him the priority in our relationships, career, finances, and even our thoughts. When we shift focus in this way, we become less concerned with our own desires and more concerned with following His will. Let's pray. Lord, we are bought and paid for by your blood, shed on the cross to purchase our salvation. Help us to focus not on our own desires, but on your good plan for us. In Jesus' name, amen.

With humility and candor, Dr. McGee takes us through a systematic study of one of the most well-known chapters in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13. Together we look at the preeminence, prerogatives, and permanence of God's love and discover that while we can't keep God from loving us, we can get into a place where we don't realize His love in our lives.
