When was the last time that you participated in taking the Lord’s Supper?
How did you go about preparing yourself to participate?
Why is the Lord’s Supper an important part of the believer’s life?
Listen to this podcast to find out what the Bible says about the Lord’s Supper. Jesus instituted this ordinance of the church for us to remember what He has done for us. Later, Paul tells us that we are to be serious, and not casual or flippant, in our preparation and participation is this very important ceremony.
This is to be a time of remembrance of the love that God has for us, and it is to be a time of self-assessment and repentance.
Don’t miss the wonderful message that is to be found in the believer’s heart as they remember the finished work of salvation that Jesus has done for you.

Life often places us in situations where we have a loved one who is suffering in great pain, or emotionally from a loss. Our natural desire is to be able to reach out and remove that suffering from them and place it on ourselves. We want to take their place, and let us handle the pain.
I remember watching my mother as she suffered in pain from terminal cancer. There was nothing more that I wanted to do than take that pain away from her and let me bear it. I wanted to do this because I loved her enough that I was willing to take her place, even if it meant that I would die.
If we as people are capable of this kind of love, how much more so is a holy God capable of this kind of love? It is because of God’s love for us that He sent His Son Jesus to die on a cross so that we could avoid the suffering and pain of an eternity spent burning in the Lake of Fire. Jesus took on our suffering so that we could choose not to. God loves each of us so much that He desires that none of us should perish.
Listen to this podcast to learn how Jesus suffered great pain on the cross. How Jesus suffered emotionally on the cross. How Jesus suffered at the hands of a holy God on the cross, and Jesus suffered at the hand of Satan while He was on the cross.
Most of all, hear why Jesus had to suffer.

Who was in control of the events that led to Jesus dying on the cross?
Was it the Jewish religious leadership?
Was it the Romans?
Was it Judas who betrayed Jesus?
Listen to this podcast to discover the answer to this question is that Jesus was in complete control of the events that led to His death on the cross. He deliberately, knowingly, and willingly walked to the cross. God so loved each of us as humans that He sent His only begotten Son to die so that none should perish and each of us should have the opportunity for everlasting life.
Jesus tells us that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Jesus went to the cross to make that possible.
Join us as we begin a series of lessons that describe the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Listen as God shows us just how much He loves us.

If you knew that a thief was going to break into your house tonight while you slept, how would it change the way you act tonight? How would you go about making yourself ready for him?
As a believer, if you knew for certain that Jesus was coming tomorrow, how would it change how you live your life today? How would you go about making yourself ready for Him?
Would there be a sense of urgency to tell your friends and family about Jesus and what it means to have eternal life?
If you knew that you would stand before Jesus as your Judge tomorrow, would you be on your knees tonight asking Jesus to forgive you of your sins.
Listen to this podcast to hear what the Bible says about when Jesus is coming, and who Jesus is coming for, and then ask yourself Are you ready for Jesus to come?
