When we need something done that we cannot do for ourselves, then we begin to search for someone with the power to meet that need.
When my car needs repaired, when something in my home needs repaired, I begin a search for someone with the power to meet that need.
When my need becomes a desperate need, I look for someone with the power to save me.
Listen to this podcast to find the One with the power to meet the most desperate need in each of our lives. Listen and discover that Jesus Christ is the only One with the power to save you.
If you are lost in a dark world, then Jesus Christ is the answer to that need. Jesus Christ has the power to save you.
Why would Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, need to be baptized?
Did He need to repent of anything? Did He need to turn from religion to faith?
For that matter, why would Jesus Christ, the Creator of all things, need to be tempted by one His own creations, Satan?
Did Jesus, the last Adam, fall in this temptation, just as the first Adam did in the Garden of Eden?
These are compelling questions with significant answers to all those who call Jesus, Lord and Master.
Listen to this podcast and learn what the Word of God says about these questions that are the foundation of our faith in Jesus Christ.
Our world is in need of repentance. It needs to turn away from religion and turn towards Jesus Christ. This is the message that John the Baptist had for the Jews of his day. They needed to repent and turn away from the rituals of Judaism and return to the God-given faith of their fathers. Their baptism was a symbol of this repentance.
Mark tells us of John's baptism of repentance, and then he tells of the coming of the One who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.
Listen and rejoice as we learn of the difference between John's baptism and the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Do your emotions tell others about you?
Do they describe what you are passionate about?
Do they tell the ones you love how sincere you are when you apologize for causing them grief?
Do they reveal how you deal with worry, fear, and trials, as well as joy, happiness, and love?
This is what this lesson is about. First, Paul lets us into the depths of his heart as he reveal his emotions of fear and then joy. Then Paul shows us the emotions of a person who genuinely is repenting of the sin in their lives.
Paul will challenge how you go about telling God that you are repentant of the sins you have committed, and then he describes the characteristics of genuine repentance.
Listen and rejoice to the heart of an apostle.
