OtO 355: Well Done My Son – Steven Menking

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! Very shortly I will be blessed with a son. This will mark a new season in my life, and in this time of transition I have reflected on the faithfulness of God and on my amplified responsibility as a soon to be father of two. God’s promises are secure, and He will give me the wisdom, the faith, and the strength to raise my children in the way they should go. There is nothing I desire more than to hear Jesus speak the words “well done thou good and faithful servant” over my daughter and my son on the Day of the Lord when they will stand before their Savior without me. Let us never lose sight of God’s faithfulness and the eternal nature of His promises. The scriptures in this broadcast are from Psalms 105.

When Your Prayers Have No More Words – Pastor Carter Conlon – TSC Prayer Meeting – 04.20.2021

When there is nothing left for us to express in prayer, when our strength and articulation have been totally used up, when the voice of God has still not responded, a prayer without words can rise up. God already knows what we are asking for and what we need. If we will cry out and experience a groaning of heart for the glory of God then dramatic, generation changing answers will come. Will we pledge ourselves to the Lord with fervency and dedication in this moment? How desperate are we for the power of God to come, for massive salvations to happen, and for the name of Jesus to be glorified?

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart daily?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and hear me, O Lord my God;
Enlighten my eyes,
Lest I sleep the sleep of death;
Lest my enemy say,
“I have prevailed against him”;
Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

But I have trusted in Your mercy;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

Psalm 13:1-6

Taking The Lamb Out Of The Mouth Of The Lion – Pastor Carter Conlon – TSC Prayer Meeting – 03.23.2021

Before David ruled Israel, before he slew Goliath, before he was a mighty warrior he delivered a lamb from the mouth of a lion as a shepherd. We must cling to everything that the Lord has given us. Life, salvation, precious promises, and so much more. The voice of discouragement from the enemy is such a lion in this generation, and we must refuse to give way to such voices. You have a testimony, you have a resource, you have the Word of God, you have Jesus! The Lord will empower you to walk out the victories that God wants to lead you into. The voice of discouragement is a lie, the still small voice of God is the truth. Win a spiritual battle for the Lord in your life today. All glory to Jesus!

And Saul said to David, “You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him; for you are a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.”

But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.” Moreover David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.”

And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!”

1 Samuel 17:33-37

Let’s Talk About Sin – Pastor Carter Conlon – TSC Prayer Meeting – 03.09.2021

Sin must be an urgent priority for all Christians. Leaving it unaddressed, even if doing so would spare us some pain, discomfort, or sorrow, is never the right option. All of us must ask the Lord to continually search our hearts. Holy Spirit show us what needs to change, give us the faith to lay it all down before you in repentance, and give us a vision of what we are intended to become. A hallmark of maturity is a greater sensitivity to sin, a greater humility with respect to our dependence on God’s righteousness, and a shortened time frame between awareness of sin and repentance. All of us must adjust in order that our walks with God would be amplified in every way.

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ”

Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”

Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”

And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”

The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

So the Lord God said to the serpent:

“Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust
All the days of your life.
And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”

To the woman He said:

“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;
In pain you shall bring forth children;
Your desire shall be for your husband,
And he shall rule over you.”

Genesis 3:1-16

Big And Small – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 01.17.2021

God wants to be involved in every aspect of our lives. We must earnestly beseech Him at all times and for matters big and small. Many Christians only pray when they are out of other options, but that will not suffice. We must regularly seek the wisdom and the will of the Lord for our lives so that we can be properly obedient. Jesus has abundantly demonstrated on the cross His absolute worthiness of all our focus and attention. Do not fall into the trap of assuming that we can handle things on our own. Even if we can, we should consult the Lord to see how to do things the best way possible. Jesus truly is Lord, and His Kingdom shall be sustained forever. We can have a regular audience with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. What does it say about us if we decline that open invitation?

And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said to him: “Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and have not relied on the Lord your God, therefore the army of the king of Syria has escaped from your hand. Were the Ethiopians and the Lubim not a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the Lord, He delivered them into your hand. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”

2 Chronicles 16:7-9

OtO 323: Pursuing Simple Authenticity – Steven Menking

Join us for another Biblical discussion of important spiritual principles in partnership with Reliance! Many Christians have sadly found themselves in a position of complexity and uncertainty. This is bound to happen whenever we gradually stray from our first love and cease spending time developing an authentic relationship with Jesus. Now is a moment to praise Him, to recalibrate, to enter His presence, to seek His face, and to strengthen the foundational elements of our faith. Will you refuse to allow God to direct your paths in this critical season? The scriptures in this broadcast are from Psalm 100.

Find Your Walk – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 10.11.2020

In many cases the answer to the trials we are facing is not complicated. When dealing with a challenge, we must simply make the choice to walk. Choose pursuing the Lord, and do not get stuck on the negative side of the equation. Do not obsess over not walking correctly; instead, be steadfast in simply following God. Think upon the Lord and His word rather than the potential failings of us and those around us. The Holy Spirit is always with us to help, one moment after the next, one step after the other. Walk with the Lord in the victory that Jesus has won!

For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

Galatians 5:13-26

OtO 322: Counting The Cost – Pastor David Lankford

Thanks for joining us again On the Objective as your host Steven Menking welcomes back Pastor David Lankford to discuss the importance of counting the cost of serving Christ. Many are feeling overwhelmed and overcome in times such as these, but the challenges we face are part of this life. In particular, following Jesus will bring about no shortage of trials, and in each instance our faith will be strengthened as we rely on the Holy Spirit for perseverance. The Lord is perfectly faithful, and the afflictions of this world are not worthy of comparison to His glory. Remain steadfast and count the cost of serving God! Thanks for joining us On the Objective!
