Both spiritual sin and physical disease can lead to isolation and despair. And while many who are sick call on God’s grace for healing, how much more important is it for us all to call on God for forgiveness? In our desperation, do we turn to the only one who can truly deliver us not just physically, but spiritually?
Although the promises made on big billboards, clever TV ads and online popups are tempting, we often learn the hard way that many of them are simply false advertising. We’ll learn how Jesus substantiated the claims he made about himself and find out how his miracles silenced those who questioned his divinity.
Today, on The Bible Study Hour...as Paul pens his final letter to Timothy, knowing his time on earth is short, the apostle repeats a vital request to his spiritual son: Guard what is given to your care." Guard the gospel, Timothy and preach the truth. Listen as Dr. James Boice begins his study of II Timothy, the last letter of a guardian of the faith who’s about to meet his God.
Dr. Boice teaches from Matthew’s account of Jesus calming the stormy sea. The story is a perfect depiction of the Incarnation Jesus as fully God and fully man. Exhausted and sleeping one minute and controlling the forces of nature the next, Jesus takes the staring role in this miracle account that sounds like a scene right out of an action movie!
Most people love the feeling of getting tasks checked off of their to do list. But spiritual discipleship isn’t simply a chore that can be checked off a list or put off until tomorrow. It’s a job for today and every day. It’s a duty that is foundational to the Christian life. Dr. Boice discusses this important concept in a challenging message entitled, "The Cost of Discipleship."
