Four Part Harmony - Part B

Some of the best moments on American Idol aren't the solo performances, but when all the singers join together and blend their voices in harmony. There's nothing sweeter than well-trained voices blended together in first, thirds, and fifths. Spiritual harmony is much the same—when believers blend with the triune Godhead there is an alignment that results in a deep sense of fulfillment. And what is the note we are to sing in this spiritual song? It is the note of loving obedience!

Privileges of God’s Employees - Part B

Most companies have benefits for employees: things like overtime pay, health insurance, and sick pay.

F.A.Q. - Part B

An old Persian Proverb reads, "It's harder to ask a sensible question than to supply a sensible answer."

But whenever we ask God questions we must hang around to get the supplied answers. The questions Peter asked are similar to ones we frequently ask. Let's consider and apply Jesus' outstanding answer.

Let's consider today the culture of the cross of Christ: what it meant to Jesus personally and the world ultimately.

Cross-Culture - Part A

The term cross-culture emerges from the social sciences and typically refers to interaction of one culture or language with another. But that's not how I'm using it today. I'm thinking of it in the biblical sense, the salvation sense. Jesus' whole life was immersed in the culture of the cross and He referred to His impending death on the cross as "His hour." Let's consider today the culture of the cross of Christ: what it meant to Jesus personally and the world ultimately.
