The Grace To Be Gracious – Pastor William Carrol – Times Square Church – 04.14.2019

Moses.jpg

We don’t have the resources to be gracious. However, our God in His everlasting mercy can provide us the grace that we need to become a source of grace for others. When we are wronged, hurt, rejected, betrayed, abandoned, chastised, or just plain beat down our first natural instinct is not to pour out grace. This even happened to Moses after he was given the first copy of the law from the Lord only to turn wrathful at the disobedience of the people. We need supernatural faith, strength, and grace to overcome the temptation to succumbing to anger, even anger that can be characterized as righteous or justified. The depth of this need cannot be overstated. Let us abandon our own strength and rely entirely on the Lord to call us, fill us, equip us, and send us. Jesus is faithful from the cross to eternity, and He will not fail you. It’s time for forgiveness. It’s time for supernatural grace. It’s time for prayer. It’s time for the harvest!

Then Moses said to the Lord, “See, You say to me, ‘Bring up this people.’ But You have not let me know whom You will send with me. Yet You have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.’ Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people.”

And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.”

So the Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”

And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.”

Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.”

Exodus 33:12-23

He Will Show You Things To Come – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 04.14.2019

JesusFish.jpg

Are your eyes on this life or on eternity? We must act in this life, but our priority must be eternity. Jesus has promised us that the Holy Spirit will give us insight and will declare the things that will come. We know where our real home is, but if we become distracted by the ways of this world we can see our rewards eroded. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, so where is your foundation? Jesus is reaching out with encouragement. What will you prioritize in the days ahead? What about eternity? What about those incredible words: well done thou good and faithful servant? Seek first the Kingdom of God and receive the eyes to see what God would have us to see.

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.

John 16:12-15

Podcast: SER 183 – Calvary Perspectives – What Does It Mean To Be A Disciple Of Jesus Christ?

2019.04.11 SER

Lots of Christians talk about discipleship. Churches focus their attention on making disciples. However, if Christians and the churches they attend really understood what being a disciple means and what making disciples really looks like, why is there such lack of courage and boldness in modern American Christians and from the churches they attend today?

Paul and Adam join me for another episode of Calvary Perspectives on SER.

Podcast: On the Objective – Trade In Something Useless For Something Priceless – Steven Menking – 04.07.2019

2019.04.07 OtO

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles! We must absolutely get into the mindset of the importance of the eternal. The infinity of eternity with God is so much more substantial and important than the finite nature of our earthly lives. However, each day it seems we will take time for the pleasures of this life while choosing to take time away from sowing into the eternal kingdom of God. Take five minutes today and begin to trade something useless for something priceless. Building that habit will be one of the most important things that you can ever do. Store up treasures in heaven! The scriptures from this message are found in Proverbs 2 and John 17.

One On One – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 03.31.2019

Alabaster

Much of the words of Jesus that we treasure so dearly are the product of one on one conversations. It is so critical for us to spend time with the Lord as well as each other one on one. So how do we do this? Ask questions of other people. Pay attention to their answers. Ask follow up questions. Find an opportunity for prayer. If we focus on being people who others want to communicate with then there will be more opportunities for us to communicate with others. Listening will allow us to avoid defaulting to cliches and will provide room for God to enter the situation. This powerful message focuses on a one on one conversation Jesus had with a sinful woman in front of others at a dinner. We must trust God with everything, be willing to press in to Him, and to treasure a word from the Lord for us. Take the time to get one on one with Jesus today!

Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.”

And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”

So he said, “Teacher, say it.”

“There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”

Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.”

And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.” Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”

Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”

Then He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”

Luke 7:36-50

Podcast: SER 182 – Judd Saul – Enemies Within The Church

2019.03.30 SER

Enemies Within: The Church is an educational, historical, and evidence-based movie experience that provokes a passionate return to orthodox Christian faithfulness across the western world. As is necessary for such a wonderful turn toward Christ, the movie heralds a clarion call for Christians to turn away from popular, yet errant beliefs held in contradiction to carefully interpreted Holy Scriptures. But Enemies Within: The Church is much more than a mere movie. It is also an invitation for believers to employ a proven Biblical recipe capable of producing restored strength and blessing for all who answer.
