Watch and pray

In times of distress we often quote Romans 8:28 which says that all things work together for good to them that love God and are called according to His purpose. But often this verse offers little consolation when WE can’t figure out how it could possibly be beneficial. On our program today, our host, Barbara Sandbek shares just such a situation and shows us that there ARE lessons to be learned if we look for them.

How to succeed at your job

As Believers in Jesus, our most important job IN LIFE is to serve as an ambassador – to represent Christ well in word and deed. This is effectively done as we yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Our objective is to tell everyone how they can be reconciled to God through Christ. Doing our job well pleases our Heavenly Father. We work, not to earn our salvation – Jesus did that for us – but rather to prove that we believe what we say we believe. Several things displease God – worry, fear, unbelief, disobedience. These all point to a lack of FAITH or TRUST. As we conclude our series let’s again look at why faith is such an important job requirement.

How to please your boss

On our last program, we examined the faith of the Israelites when they crossed the Red Sea and likened it to the decision we have to make to either step out for Christ - or live for the world. Having looked at an example of demonstrated faith, we’ll now move on to review several situations where this wasn’t the case. We pray that from these studies you’ll be better able to see how well you are fairing out in the faith area.

How to please your boss

We hope you’ve been enjoying our current series, ‘How to succeed at the most important job of your life’. So far, we’ve defined the job and the qualifications and then centered in on ‘how to please our boss’. The key to pleasing our spiritual boss, God, is by having faith in Him. We prove our faith by what we do. Since illustrations make the best teachers, we’ll first take a look at some Biblical examples of people who pleased God because of their faith.

How to please your boss

In taking on any new job, we naturally ask a lot of questions. But consider this - do we ever think about what it will take to please our boss? This is our topic for today’s program.

How to succeed at your job

What are some of the questions we might ask when offered a job? One of the first ones might be - am I qualified? Another is – will I enjoy the work and the location? How about – will I like the boss and the people I have to work with? What about the pay? Taking on a new job can be a life-changing experience. With this in mind – let’s take you to our host Barbara Sandbek who will expound our topic.

Waiting- the results of not waiting

Waiting is never an easy thing to do, but it is part of life, and useful for our spiritual growth. Susannah Spurgeon, the wife of Charles Spurgeon, counseled her own heart while waiting with these words: “The Lord has strewn the pages of God’s Word with promises of blessedness to those who wait for Him. And remember, His slightest Word stands fast and sure; it can never fail you. So, my soul, see that you have a PROMISE underneath thee, for then your waiting will be RESTING and a FIRM FOOTHOLD, for your hope will give you CONFIDENCE in Him who has said, ‘They shall not be ashamed that wait for Me.’” Psalm 37:7a says… Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him. Let’s continue now as our host Barbara Sandbek introduces our topic again with a fitting song.

The benefits of waiting on/for the Lord

The ability to wait patiently for something has always been an admirable trait. Joseph had to wait while suffering in enslavement for 13 years before he was made Pharaoh’s top official. David had to wait for 15 years before he was made King – all the time hiding from King Saul’s murderous exploits against him. The disciples waited in the upper room for 10 days for the Holy Spirit to descend upon them. Each of their patient waiting yielding a great blessing. Are YOU willing to wait for a blessing? Stay tuned as our host, Barbara Sandbek, shares some of the benefits of waiting on the Lord.

How to pray - the attitude of prayer

God has much to say about prayer. In fact, He commanded that we pray. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says that we are to pray continually, and Philippians 4:6 exhorts us to pray in every situation. On our last program, we learned that… We are to pray to our Father, God, in the Name of Jesus.. We are not to babble.. We are not to pray so others with be impressed.. We must pray with faith believing that God will answer.. We must pray with a clean heart so as not to hinder our communication... We should pray according to God’s will so that our prayers will be answered ‘yes’. In this program, Barbara Sandbek will explore the Scriptures for a further understanding of how to pray and what to pray for.

How to pray - What to pray about..

Much has been written on the subject of prayer. Perhaps it’s because it seems somewhat mysterious. There’s no specific method and no guaranteed outcome. Why should we pray, then? Is it just to get what we want, or to change God’s mind about something? No…it is to fulfill one of mankind's’ greatest needs – to have fellowship with our Creator. On our program today, Barbara Sandbek, will explore the Scripture to see how we can pray more effectively.
