Mankind is built for eternity. We will either spend it WITH God or WITHOUT Him. The GIFT Jesus died and rose to give us is offered INDIVIDUALLY and must be received to gain eternity with God. Why not start your NEW YEAR with Jesus in your life and receive LIFE ASSURANCE of eternity with God. There is no price man can pay for these gifts! Jesus paid it all. JOY is the next gift our host, Barbara Sandbek, will describe for us. Enjoy all the gifts and don’t forget to make that Christmas ornament marked ‘JOY’ for your tree.
Christmas is an exhilarating time of year, a time of expectations, parties, gathering with family - shopping, but it’s also a time of searching for many people. What ARE these things called hope, peace, and joy the Christmas carols talk about? It sure can’t be found in all the tinsel, festivities and gifts we receive or even the excitement of the season. An empty heart that longs for hope just can’t be filled with these things. Are you looking for HOPE? Our host Barbara Sandbek will explain where hope can be found as she continues with our Christmas series on the Christmas tree gifts.
When you think of Christmas decorations what comes to mind? Probably a lot of things, but surely a Christmas tree. They are so popular that.most stores are even setting up displays as early as mid-October. While the trees may be just a decoration or business for some people, for the Believer they hold a special meaning. But it wasn’t always the case. On this program, Barbara Sandbek shares some of the history behind the Christmas tree as we know it today.
Barbara Sandbek has been taking us on a journey with the prophet Elijah. We’ve seen how God worked IN Elijah to groom his faith, and make him a man for the times, and how God worked THROUGH Elijah to call his unfaithful people, Israel, back to Himself. We’ve seen Elijah at his best at the Mt. Carmel showdown, and at his worst when he retreated from Queen Jezebel’s threat. On this program, Barbara will conclude this series, with a lesson from Elijah’s final days, and a summary of what we’ve learned from his life.
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.
On our last program Barbara Sandbek talked about Elijah’s discouragement over Queen Jezebel’s threat to take his life. We saw how misplaced confidence, misplaced armor, misplaced energy,missed prayer, and missed rest, all contributed to bring him to the valley of despair. On this program,, Barbara will share a time in her life when she, too, faced discouragement.
On this Grace Notes program, Barbara Sandbek will follow the prophet Elijah as he moves from his mountaintop experience, to the valley of depression. We’ll see what caused this seasoned man of God to succumb to the temptation to lose hope.
On our last progra, Barbara Sandbek took us to the showdown at Mt. Carmel, where Elijah, the lone prophet, single handedly, with the help of God, defeated the 450 prophets of Baal. It was not only a victory for him, but it finally convinced the Israelites that Jehovah is God. Baal, considered to be the Lord of the rain clouds, was powerless to give rain, even after the ecstatic raving of his prophets. What a dramatic demonstration of Baal’s impotence. With simplicity and dignity, Elijah rested his case on the certainty that the Lord would answer his prayer. Why? Because there is strength, power, and hope in the name of Lord.
Barbara Sandbek has been taking us on a journey with the prophet Elijah. As God’s spokesman, Elijah was called to deliver God’s unpopular message of doom to Ahab, the King of Israel. He told him that there would be no rain or dew on the land until he said so. After his speech, he followed God’s orders and hid in the wilderness for a time. From there God sent him to Zarephath where he learned the power of prayer, and the power experienced through waiting on God. During this 3 ½ year period, God blossomed Elijah’s faith. Now God has given Elijah his marching orders to go back to Ahab and finish the task he started – to bring revival to the land.
Are you tired of being weighed down by the sin in your life? What can you do about it? Is forgiveness possible? How? Barbara Sandbek shares how in today's episode of "Grace Notes".
How is it possible to actually have power through weakness? God revealed many things to the Apostle Paul, some so magnificent he couldn’t even write about. But along with these revelations, God gave him a thorn in his flesh. Why?
Children expect to receive things. We, adults, on the other hand, hold our cup up to the Lord saying “fill it” and it’s already full of our ‘things’ and our plans. A ‘give me’ attitude isn’t all bad. God wants . . .
We’ve been studying about Peace – peace with God and peace within ourselves. Today, our host Barbara Sandbek will center on keeping peace with each other. Stay tuned, this may be just what you need to hear.
