A ship that is not anchored will always drift with the current. While this fact is obvious, it is often difficult to detect that a vessel is drifting, much less how far it is drifting if one is aboard and has not objective point of reference. The tide and the undercurrents can be subtle and a boat can drift away before the passengers realize it. The same is true with our souls. It is also usually the case with churches that drift into sin and error. The ocean of culture has strong, often unseen currents which bare the old ship of Zion away and off course. Many churches are adrift today. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we let the Hebrew writer remind us to review our position on the sea of life and make sure we are not slipping away from the truth. Find out some of the ways to detect a drifting church.
Methuselah is known as the longest recorded living person in the history of mankind. We don’t know much about his life except that he was the grandfather of the famous Noah and that he lived until the year of the flood. There is one other statement made about him, however, that indicates that he had a profound influence on one who came before him: his father. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we learn how this baby boy changed the trajectory of Enoch’s life and how children should help influence a dad’s thinking today as well.
The law of seedtime and harvest is as old as God’s living creation. Like all of God’s laws that govern the universe, the principle is immutable: “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” This is not only true in God’s physical world but in the spiritual realm as well. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we’re reminded of how this unavoidable law should make us wiser farmers in our field of life.
The Bible not only teaches us to be cautious when we speak but also to be careful when we listen. Jesus placed the responsibility of learning and believing the truth on the hearer. The scriptures provide us with examples of many people who heard the words of truth and who reacted in different ways. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we learn about the reasons many never accept the word of God in faith and obey it.
Living on this side of the cross does not make the Old Testament irrelevant and unimportant to the Christian! The Apostle Paul tells us there are some critical lessons for us from these 39 books. We look at four of them in this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak.
