RDTT 053: Lets Start Dying

Last episode we looked at not being a “Sunday” Christian.  Our biggest point was that we needed to change who we are on the inside so that who we are on the outside will reflect it.  This week we are going to look at the idea of dying to ourselves spiritually.  We are going to see the challenge that puts in front of us, but we are also going to discover the joy it can bring our life.  We also will discover the idea of dying to self isn’t some helpful advice, it is a command that if not obeyed will lead us to a life with no fulfillment in the end.

 

 

Verses Used In This Episode:

  • Luke 9:23 – 23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
  • Galatians 2:20 – 20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
  • Ephesians 4:22-24 – 22 to put off your old self,[a] which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, 23 and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
  • John 12:24 – 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.

RDTT 052: The “Sunday” Christian

In this episode we look at the “Sunday Only ” Christian.  We see how easy it is for us to fall into the trap of being the person we aught to be on Sundays when we are around other Christians, but then living as we want the other days of the week.  We discover that God’s plan doesn’t involve days off.  We don’t get time-outs.  Instead the challenge of the Christian is to actually become “a Christian”.  This means our entire lives become centered around God and His will.  Yet in our hectic world we live in this is becoming less and less the norm.

 

Verses used in this episode:

  • Colossians 1:10 – 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
  • Philippians 2:12 – 12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,
  • Matthew 7:21-23 – 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
  • 1 Corinthians 11:1 – Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
  • Luke 9:23 – And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.

RDTT 051: Helping the Hurt and Broken

In this episode we look at helping the hurt and broken.  We see 4 important keys to helping those who are beat down or crushed.  We learn that often speaking is our first mistake.  We also see the story of Job and how he handled his broken heart.  Each of us have people in our lives who need someone to reach out to them.  We have those we know and care about who are struggling greatly with a broken heart or deep depression.  Come along as we learn how we can be the Christian friend we are suppose to be.

Verses Used In this Episode:

Romans 12:15 – 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

Job 2:11-13 – 11 When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him. 12 When they saw him from a distance, they could hardly recognize him; they began to weep aloud, and they tore their robes and sprinkled dust on their heads. 13 Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was.

Job 4:5-8 – But now trouble comes to you, and you are discouraged;
    it strikes you, and you are dismayed.
Should not your piety be your confidence
    and your blameless ways your hope?

“Consider now: Who, being innocent, has ever perished?
    Where were the upright ever destroyed?
As I have observed, those who plow evil
    and those who sow trouble reap it.

Proverbs 25:20 – Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day,
    or like vinegar poured on a wound,
    is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.

Jeremiah 6:14 – They dress the wound of my people
    as though it were not serious.
‘Peace, peace,’ they say,
    when there is no peace.

2 Corinthians 1:3-6 – Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 

Hebrews 4:16 – 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Hebrews 7:25 – 25 Therefore he is able to save completely[a] those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

Job 42:10 – 10 After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. 

Galatians 6:2 – Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 

Philippians 2:3-4 – Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

Matthew 25:34-40 –

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

John 16:22 – 22 So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.

RDTT 050: Stop Reading God’s Word?

RDTT 050: Stop Reading God’s Word?

In this episode we look at the idea of Not Reading God’s Word……………………………………. DOOOOO WHHHHAATTTTTTT!!!!

Yea I know pump the breaks we gonna be ok.  We decide to look at the idea of no longer reading God’s Word only but actually learning it.  We learn that we can easily read the Bible and never learn it, but we can never learn it without reading it.  We see that many people have great Zeal for God, but yet do so without a real knowledge of Him or His plan for us.  Learning God’s Word involves truly seeing the entire plan of scripture and allowing it to change who we are inside.  We must dig deep to understand the entirety of God’s plan in our lives and then live it accordingly.  We see that a lack of knowledge will only lead to our eventual condemnation.  But we also learn our true knowledge of His Word will help guide our lives and those we come in contact with.

 

 

Verses used in this episode:

  • Romans 1:21-23 – For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
  • Romans 10:1-4 – Brothers,[a] my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.[b]
  • Hosea 4:5-6 – You shall stumble by day;
    the prophet also shall stumble with you by night;
    and I will destroy your mother.My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
    because you have rejected knowledge,
    I reject you from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
    I also will forget your children.
  • 1 Peter 3:15 – 15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,
  • 2 Timothy 3:16-17 – All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God[a] may be complete, equipped for every good work.
  • 2 Tim 2:15 –  Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,[a] a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

RDTT 049: They Call You A Hater

In this episode of Rightly Dividing the Truth we look at seeking and saving the Lost.  We look at Matthew and see Christ sitting with Tax Collectors and Sinners.  We learn that Christ is the great physician coming to save the sick.  But we also see that we too must seek to save the sick.  We see that saving the sick involves us telling them what is wrong with them.  We discover that the world will hate us because of this, and will call us haters, bigots and judgemental.  Yet we see that unless we are willing to call sin what it is we can not truly save the sick.  Instead they will continue to live in sin that seperates them from God and will eventually send their souls to eternity in Hell.

We realize that we must love each and every person we come in contact with, but we also discover the Christian can not love sin or anything evil.  Please listen in as we see the power of saving the sick from the grasp of the devil.

 

Verses used in this episode:

Matthew 9:10-12: 10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.

Matthew 5:43-44 – “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Romans 5:8 – But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 12:9 – Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.

Jude 1:23 – Save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.

1 Timothy 1:15-16 – Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.

Luke 19:10 – For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.

1 Corinthians 15:33 – Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals

Proverbs 13:20 – He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.

1 Corinthians 5:11 – But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler–not even to eat with such a one

Psalms 26:4-5 – I do not sit with deceitful men, Nor will I go with pretenders. I hate the assembly of evildoers, And I will not sit with the wicked.
