Taking a stand for Jesus Christ has always resulted in persecution – and it’s getting worse. It's been reported that more Believers were killed in the 20th century than in all 19 centuries after the birth of Christ combined. Today on Grace Notes, Barbara Sandbek will begin the Biblical story of what four teenaged boys endured because of their stand for the Lord. We pray that this true story of faith and obedience will encourage you to do the same.
On our last program we discussed the importance of placing our hope in the right the right Person. Today, Barbara Sandbek will address the issue of how our hope, or faith, is formed by our opinion about what we hope in. Is it? If so, how?
It’s been said that man can live 40 days without food, 10 days without water, 4 minutes without air – but only a few seconds without HOPE. But before we place our HOPE IN something, we need to know - Can it be trusted? In this edition of "Grace Notes", Barb Sandbek shares where to place your hope.
Barbara Sandbek will complete our study on ‘Thinking Right Thoughts’. Philippians 4 verse 8 has been our text for this series. Through studying each phrase we’ve discovered that we need to focus on things of the Lord - things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable. TRUE things are God’s WORD. NOBLE things are God’s WAYS. RIGHT things are God’s WILL. PURE things are God’s WISDOM. LOVELY things are God’s WORKS. and ADMIRABLE things are God’s WONDERS. These and only these are excellent and praise-worthy things on which to think. Paul's exhortation to "think about such things" is followed by a second exhortation in his next verse, "put it into practice". So, as we conclude, let see how right thinking produces right actions.
So far, in our study on ‘Thinking Right Thoughts’ we’ve found that according to Philippians 4 verse 8, God’s WORD, God’s WAYS, God’s WILL, God’s WISDOM and GOD’S WORKS are right things to think about. The next phrase in the verse says to think on things that are ADMIRABLE. What are they? Well…just look out your window. On this program, Barbara Sandbek will share about God’s WONDERS.
So far, in our study on ‘Thinking Right Thoughts’ we’ve found that according to Philippians 4 verse 8, God’s WORD, God’s WAY, God’s WILL and God’s WISDOM are right things to think about. On this program, Barbara Sandbek will discuss how to think LOVELY thoughts, but first, let’s hear a song from Barbara praising God for His marvelous WORKS.
Our topic in this series is ‘Thinking Right Thoughts’. Philippians 4 verse 8 is our text. It says.. Whatever is TRUE whatever is NOBLE whatever is RIGHT whatever is PURE, whatever is LOVELY, whatever is ADMIRABLE; If anything is excellent or praise worthy THINK ABOUT SUCH THINGS. So far, we’ve found that God’s WORD is TRUE – it’s the standard to use in judging WHAT to think about. God’s WAY is NOBLE – it’s the method to use in EXERCISING God’s Word. And God’s WILL is RIGHT - It’s what we should follow to live out God’s word. On this program, Barbara Sandbek will define what PURE thinking is.
We’ve all heard the saying ‘The mind is a terrible thing to waste’. We can waste our minds by thinking unproductive thoughts. Philippians 4:8, our main text for this series, says Whatever is TRUE whatever is NOBLE whatever is RIGHT whatever is PURE, whatever is LOVELY, whatever is ADMIRABLE; If anything is excellent or praise-worthy THINK ABOUT SUCH THINGS. On our program today, Barbara Sandbek will define what thinking is RIGHT.
A man's life is governed by his thoughts. He will ultimately become what he dwells upon most in his mind. This is the reason for Paul's instruction in Romans 12 verse 2, "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind". It’s important that we THINK RIGHT THOUGHTS. That’s the subject of our current series on Grace Notes. Barbara Sandbek will elaborate on what it means to think about things that are noble. So put your thinking cap on and have a listen…
The mind is a powerful thing. What you think greatly influences what you say and do. It can govern the success or failure of your efforts, and even improve or ruin your health. Our mind is often associated with our personality. It’s said that a person can be weak or strong minded - sharp or dull minded - spiritually or carnally minded. You can be out of your mind or in your right mind. And..you can open, close and change your mind…the list goes on. Today on Grace Notes, Barbara Sandbek begins a series on ‘Thinking Right Thoughts’. So, set your MIND in gear and listen up for a MIND enlightening message.
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?
