Power in Surrender – Part 2

How do we crucify ourselves and still live? Christ’s sacrifice was beneficial to us, but how is our sacrifice beneficial to Him? Why does it matter what sacrifice we make? Why would specific order matter in making them?

Power in Surrender – Part 1

The best illustration I can think of to help me understand why Peter denied the Lord, and how he felt afterwards, was in my own life. When I was turning six, my mom . . .

God's Power In Us

There’s more to repentance than just feeling guilty. Judas Iscariot felt remorse over his betrayal of Christ, but instead of turning to the Lord for forgiveness, he chose to end his life. Why repent?

God is the Source

Barbara Sandbek is beginning a new series today on the subject of POWER. Through these studies we’ll learn about the power of God for us and the power of God in us. We’ll address such things as power in prayer, power in purity, power in God’s presence and more.

God's provision

The book of Jonah is a book about God’s provision. It was evidenced when He sent a great wind on the sea to get the rebellious prophet back on the right track, and again when He prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah and safely deliver him onto dry land. God also provided salvation for the sailors who prayed to Him for help, and the heathen Ninevites who repented. On our program today, we’ll conclude our study of Jonah and once again see God’s provision as he teaches Jonah an object lesson about His mercy.

Peter's Discourse

On this program, we're going to take you back in time to one of the most exciting events in the history of the Christian church. We'll meet some special people and hear more about what took place. The setting is Jerusalem, the time around 30 A.D.

Easter - a new begininng!

What does Easter mean to you? Is it a time to get out the Easter baskets, shop for clothes, and have your kids’ picture taken with the Easter Bunny? Well, that may be what some people do, but the actual meaning of the ‘Easter’ is ‘a day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ’. On this program, Barbara Sandbek will share some important information about this special day. So stay tuned, it could change your life.

Easter - What's good about Good Friday?

On Good Friday we celebrate the death of Jesus Christ. Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it – ‘Celebrating’ a death? Why call it ‘GOOD’ Friday? It’s good, because of the outcome. Colossians 2:14 states that the penalties of the law are removed by the cross. Colossians 1:20 says we can have peace with God because of the cross. In Ephesians 2:16 the cross is the medium of reconciliation between mankind and God. As believers, and children of God, we can have access to the Father. On this program, Barbara Sandbek will take a look at what Christ went through so that we have a GOOD Friday to celebrate.

Revival in the land

In our study of the book of Jonah we’ve seen God SPEAK a command to Jonah, Jonah SIN by running away, God SEEK out Jonah, Jonah SURRENDER to the call, God SPARE Jonah’s life, and finally God SPEAK His command to Jonah a SECOND time. God was merciful to Jonah in saving his life and in giving him another chance. It’s now time for Jonah to extend God’s mercy to the Ninevites. Jonah still doesn’t agree with what God is going to do, as we’ll see later, but he does yield his will to do what God commands. On our program today we’ll follow Jonah to Nineveh and see why God was so insistent on having this mission completed.


In describing Jonah’s personality, one commentator wrote… He was a proud, self-centered egotist: willful, pouting, jealous, and blood thirsty; a good patriot and lover of Israel, but without proper respect for God or love for his enemies. What a poor assessment of a man who is supposed to be God’s spokesman. Do you think God will use Jonah with an attitude like that? We’d say ‘no’, but that’s where God’s mercy comes in. God extended mercy to Jonah by saving his life, and in His mercy, gave him another chance to obey. The poet Robert Frost said, "After Jonah, you could never trust God NOT to be merciful again." …So true. God is a God of second chances and we’ll see that demonstrated on our program today.

Did Jonah repent?

The definition for the word ‘repent’ is ‘to feel remorse, contrition or self-reproach for what one has done or failed to do’. Oswald Chambers writes… Repentance always brings a person to the point of saying “I have sinned.” The surest sign that God is at work in his life is when he says that and means it. Anything less is simply sorrow for having made foolish mistakes. On this program Barbara Sandbek, will look at Jonah’s prayer from inside the fish and see if he is truly repentant.
