This is the last program in our Christmas story presentation. We’ve seen that God chose people who were, young, old, lowly, elite, and even peculiar, to play the roles. The common thread was that they were willing and ready. The beauty of the Christmas story is not just that Jesus CAME to earth, but WHY He came. Listen and hear more…
We hope you’ve enjoyed the Christmas Story these past few programs and that you’ve taken time to read it for yourself. On our last program, Barbara Sandbek told of the events that led up to the birth of Christ and described the surroundings in which the Savior of the world was born. Today, she will talk about the support players, and continue with the reading of the Christmas story.
On our last program, Barbara Sandbek began a series on the Christmas Story. She talked about some of the players and their roles. We learned that God’s ways are not our ways and that He chooses people to do His work, based on Godly character, rather than on outward appearance or status in life. Today, Barbara will continue with the other players, and begin the reading of the Christmas story.
HO HO HO 'Tis the season to be jolly! From the day after Thanksgiving, until the 25th of December, everybody is HAPPY. We hear Christmas music, shop 'til we drop, go to parties and attend performances. Then on the 26th of December, it's ALL OVER. We're left with un-decorating, bills, extra pounds, and even illness because we ate and partied too much. All this for one day! Christmas should really be in our hearts, EVERY day of the year! So...how can we prevent ourselves from being caught up in all of this? By focusing on the true meaning of Christmas. On this Grace Notes program, Barbara Sandbek is going to do just that. She'll begin a series on the Christmas Story, and bring out some interesting points you may not have considered. So prepare to be blessed - and don't miss a single broadcast as she unfolds the event with a Christmas song...
God gave mankind the finest gift that could EVER be given. He SAW our need before we knew it and before we even asked. We were living our lives apart from Him, but God’s heart LONGED for our fellowship, so He commended His love to us through the gift of His Son, Jesus. Jesus STRETCHED OUT His hands on the cross to give us God’s love. He died and rose from the grave, to pay the penalty for our sin against God and to provide reconciliation. When we accept this gift, we have fellowship with God. What greater gift could we possibly want? On this Grace Notes program, our host Barbara Sandbek will talk about how we should respond to this great gift.
When our faith turns to sight, we need to be careful not to become overconfident and take credit for the outcome. Moses was not allowed to enter the Promised Land because he insinuated that both he and God would bring water from the rock. Hezekiah fell prey to pride after he became successful. He bragged of 'his' riches and showed them to the pagan kings - who eventually overtook his kingdom. How did Daniel handle the miracle he received from God?
Teenaged Jewish boys were confronted with death when the wise men couldn’t reveal and interpret King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. But Daniel didn’t PANIC or POUT, rather, he PLANNED his course of action, then held a PRAYER PARTY, where he and his friends PLEADED and PERSISTED for an answer from God. God revealed the dream to Daniel. What was his first reaction to this miracle?
The king will have him killed if Daniel not only tells him the interpretation of his dream, you have to also tell him what he dreamed. What did Daniel do? Barb Sandbek answers that important question in this edition of "Grace Notes".
We’ve been studying the lives of four teenaged Jewish boys, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who were taken into captivity by the Babylonians. We’ve seen them removed from their family and its Godly influence, trained in pagan culture, and tempted with things that would make ANYONE want to compromise. So far, they’ve passed all the tests with flying colors. On our program today, Barbara Sandbek will tell us about an even bigger test they had to face. Will they give in?
Have your ever wondered how different Daniel’s life might have been had he not been taken captive?
We’re in the studio now where the Sandbek family is in the middle of a discussion on our next topic –Heaven.Want to join in? OK, then, let’s see what’s on their mind.
The phrase ‘the Glory of God’ represents many things – the essential quality of God’s character, His righteousness, and His presence. In fact, someone once described it as ‘all his attributes summed up into one and then raised to the nth power’. His Glory is also His worthiness. Everything about Him testifies that He is worthy to receive praise, honor, and respect. When we ascribe Glory to God it is a form of affirmation, praise, and thanksgiving.
"One of the most fascinating things I ever learned in math was the meaning of ‘infinity’. Somehow, I knew innately that there was such a thing, even before it was described. Why? Because our soul . . ."
We’ve caught someone doing things RIGHT and we want you to hear about it.
What are the signs that true revival has taken place? Is it just because someone says they are revived? Is it possible to rob God?
