Everyone has things in their lives they don’t share with others. It’s especially true of people who have a public ministry. However, there are times that there is great benefit in sharing the lessons learned through these experience. This is the case with our host, Barbara Sandbek. On our program today, she will discuss how God transformed her life from one of dependence on herself to one of dependence on Him.
God has a good purpose for every change that occurs in our lives, but, too many of us are pining away because things are not the way they used to be. We’ve depended on PLACES, PEOPLE, PROCEDURES or POSITION to draw us closer to the Lord. I say, “‘Where is your God?” Is He in a church sanctuary, in an idol you look up to, in a ritual, in your service for Him? Do you love the GIFTS more than the GIVER?
The Ten Commandments have been a source of controversy in recent times. It seems some people are offended by them.

The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2:2…”I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” This knowledge allowed him to endure the many sufferings he received in his ministry, and still write heartfelt instructions from his experiences that even we follow today. Resolutions are good things to make as long as we rely on the direction of the Lord to DEFINE them and His strength to KEEP them. On our program today, Barbara Sandbek will discuss how we can determine what makes a Godly resolution.
"My husband Dale & I have met some seniors who are busy serving the Lord – collecting & distributing food, stuffing evangelistic mailers and even ministering in nursing homes. But . . ."
Who is this Jesus, who said, “Foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests – but the Son of man has no where to lay His head. In a world made by Him – He had no place to call His home.
