#32: Words From The Cross (4): My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?
Jesus time on the cross is an example of complete submission to the will of the Father. He experienced a painful and humiliating death. Just hours before the Lord prayed earnestly that the cup would pass from Him, but it was not to be. He was obedient to the Father and, for it, was crowned as Lord of lords and King of kings. Similarly, God requires our submission to His will. It can be painful and humiliating at times. We may pray for deliverance, but not realize it. Even so, we must continue to trust in God and be mindful of the reward that awaits for our obedience.

Gideon is one of five judges mentioned in Hebrews 11. He was not a perfect man (Judges 8:27). However, he leaned on God for help and did what God commanded.

#27: The Bread of Life (2)
Jesus refused to become an earthly king when the Jews tried to make Him one (John 6:15). The people were seeking the physical – this world – blessings and benefits. They were following Him to fill their bellies – they were carnal. The Lord, however, pointed them to the manna from heaven – the Bread of Life. There are a few key points we want to get out of this second study from John 6: • How men come to Him • We must fully partake of Jesus • Many are offended by the Lord’s teaching

Jonah is one of the most fascinating events recorded in Bible history, let alone world history. He is the only man known to survive being swallowed by a fish, stuck in its belly for three days, then puked up on dry land. His preaching was powerful enough to bring an entire city of Gentiles to repentance, but was angered that the Lord spared them. Jonah is no different than us and can teach us some hard lessons. We will see how he resisted God’s will, repented of his sin, then resented God’s mercy. To learn more about this episode and to sign up to receive a daily Bible affirmation go to BibleInfo.co.

#22: Temptation of Jesus
Satan attacked Jesus in the wilderness immediately after John baptized Him (Matt. 3:13-17). Luke states that there were 40 days of temptation, followed by three specific ones that were very challenging (Luke 4:1, 2). The Lord’s temptation was for our benefit. He set the example of how to overcome Satan’s schemes and helps us relate to Him. Or, to put it another way, it allows us to see and accept that He knows exactly what we face. We will see in this episode that (1) Jesus was tempted like us (2) He overcame temptation by using God’s word (3) Jesus received everything Satan offered, but according to God’s will, not the devil’s devising.

#21: David and Goliath
Every generation and nation needs a hero. People long for a champion. The timid, feckless, and fearful are despised… or worse, ignored. This is true for secular as well as sacred causes. Some appreciate and praise the hero; others envy and criticize. This what happened to David. Before David became king, he was a hero to a nation in distress; a brave champion willing to take a bold stand. His life was certainly not without fault, but he is still described as a man after God’s own heart (1 Sam. 13:14). In this episode we want to examine the event that “made” David; that which put him in the national spotlight and cemented his reputation for his generation and beyond – slaying Goliath.

#20: Trial By Fire
Men and women of faith from ancient times inspire us today. They are honored by the Holy Spirit by being put into the sacred text and held up as examples for the ages. These people from long ago faced incredible difficulties and brutal treatment. Yet, they displayed great faith and remained humble, obedient servants of God. We want to examine an account of three young men who “quenched the violence of fire”: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in Daniel 3. They were captives in the land of Babylon who faced pressure to compromise their faith or face the consequence – the burning fiery furnace.

#19: The Beheading of John
What comes to mind when you think of a preacher or minister? Many picture a very mild man who wears “Mr. Roger” sweaters and has a sweet disposition – one who makes friends with everyone he meets. They don’t think of someone who lives alone, dresses in rough clothing, and offends many of the people who hear him preach. Yet, this is exactly what John the baptizer was. A man that lived in the desert, away from most people, and preached stern lessons exposing sin and called on people to repent. In this episode, we are going to see what this type of preaching led for John – his death. To learn more about this episode and to sign up to receive a daily Bible affirmation go to BibleInfo.co.

#18: Daniel In The Lion's Den
The steadfast faith of Daniel cannot be overemphasized. He is a man that was consistent in his is devotion to God and, because of this, was able to face the prospect of a horrific death with firm resolve. The account of Daniel being thrown into the lion’s den, is not merely a children’s story. It really wasn’t written for children primarily, but for Jews living in pagan captivity. It was written to give them the courage they needed to stand fast in their faith no matter what pressure or consequences they were to face. We can learn many valuable lessons from this account including: (1) the fault of faithfulness; (2) The necessity and benefit of daily service to God; (3) The impact we can have on those in power by maintaining an unwavering commitment to God.
