This might surprise you, but the life that Jesus lived after He rose from the grave is vastly different for the life He lived before. And as with Him, so it is with us: we have been called to live lives of significance. That’s the message for today. From all of us here at GOGF Ministries, Happy Resurrection Sunday!
Jesus’ arrival on Palm Sunday required much preparation. Today’s message takes us front and center as Jesus makes His way into Jerusalem. From all of us here at GOGF Ministries, Blessed Palm Sunday as we celebrate the arrival of our King!
Today we start chapter 8 in 1Samuel. The people of God have a choice. They’ve decided whom they want to follow. They’ve decided to whom they will give their allegiance. The same choice confronts you today. Choose wisely.
Sometimes we lose our way. Sometimes we stray for the path that leads to God. An old story tells of a man asking for directions to a location. His is told, “You can’t get there from here!” It might seem impossible for some to get to God from where they are- but it is not!
Before the temple was built, the Ark Of The Covenant represented the presence of God. But it was stolen and taken away. In today’s passage we’ll see that those who did not honor and respect His presence and His place suffered dire consequences.
Looking at the problems in our world today, some might conclude that God has lost control. How could all these things happen if an all-knowing, all-loving God were still on the throne? Today’s message tackles this age-old question.
The question, “Why do the righteous suffer?” is as old as time. There is only one place that we can find an answer, and that is in the Bible. You don’t need to study the Scriptures long to learn why sinners meet reverses and anguish. They are apart from God. But why do Christians suffer? Yes, I’m a child of God- called, blessed, and all the good things that the Bible says about me. But it also says that I am not exempt from all the blows life brings with it. Today’s message may not be a popular one, but it’s in the Book.
Think you know the story of Jonah? Think again. It’s about more than a man and a big fish. The story of Jonah is a story of prejudice and fear and exclusion. In today’s message Dr. Drew Hart sheds new light on an old story.
The Scripture is clear: God desires to speak. He wants to speak to those who don’t know Him. He wants to speak to His children. The question is, “How do we know when it’s Him speaking?” Today’s message has some great insight.
When it comes to the things of God, and our sensitivity to His voice, you can never start too soon. In today’s teaching that lesson is front and center in the story of Eli, Hanna, and Samuel.
Fellowship. Biblically it is defined as association, community, communion, joint participation and intimacy. It is the lifeblood of our connection as believers and today’s teaching underscores its value- it’s priceless.
Some say He was a good teacher. Some say that He was one of the prophets. Some say that He was no more than a just man. What others think is irrelevant. What do you think?
We don’t follow Christ because of the benefits- but thank God there are many!
Even in the midst of all that is happening around us, we can still be thankful. Today in Colossians chapter one Paul outlines some of the reasons why.
Each of us should aspire to be a blessing in the lives of others. Today we start a new series in the book of Colossians. Paul thanked God for the saints there. How many thank God for you? Full message here: https://gogfministries.org/media/
