Putting Faith into Practice

Created on 19 November 2018

Continuing our series through James, we consider the admonitions James makes to believers to "show their faith by their works." In short, doing good things by faith says much more about us than merely uttering the words "I believe."

One of the most relevant, pertinent, and even convicting lessons to the church is found in James chapter 2. In this passage, the Apostle James very pointedly addresses what he calls being a "respecter of persons," which is to say showing partiality on others in our assemblies (churches based on carnal reasons.

Most people in our country claim to be religious. At the same time, quite a number of people in today's time claim to be believers but not religious. We're sure you've heard the cliche', that Christianity is "about a relationship, not a religion." In today's broadcast, we continue our study of the Book of James, coming to James' assertions about what true religion actually is, and why it's a great thing!

The Importance of Context!

Created on 17 September 2018

The Bible is a book to be taken in context! That is to say, when God gave each portion of scripture, He did so with an intended meaning. As a consequence, a single passage cannot say one thing to one person, and something contradictory to another person. In this broadcast, we learn about "rightly dividing" the scriptures before considering three of the most misused passages today as examples.

Lately, we've been discussing the expansion of God's kingdom here in the world while considering the petition from The Model Prayer, "thy kingdom come." This brings us to an interesting study: When the church grew in the Book of Acts, what happened directly prior to and during the seasons of growth? In this message, pastor Ben Winslett considers these "examples of expansion" as food for thought for us today.

When God's Name is Hallowed

Created on 20 August 2018

When Jesus taught His disciples to pray, one of the statements He instructed them to say was "hallowed be Thy name." While the utterance of this phrase is an act of worship and praise, it is also a petition that God's name would be sanctified (regarded as Holy) in the Earth. This presents an interesting question to consider: What does it look like when God's name is hallowed? Listen to learn more.

Prayer is absolutely crucial for the disciple of Christ. In fact, we are taught in scripture "always to pray, and never to faint." And, to "pray without ceasing."  Because God is the Sovereign King of kings and Lord of lords, and because He loves us, we trust Him to answer our prayers according to His will. Fervent prayer impacts the world around us!

God's Creative Force

Created on 30 July 2018

When God created the Universe, he required no engineers, construction crews, or tools; He merely spoke it into existence. Likewise, when Jesus raised Lazarus or Jairus' daughter from the dead, He merely spoke and they returned to life. These examples clearly depict the means of power God employs when He acts in our world: His Voice. That is to say, Divine fiat or decree.

How Does God Reward Us?

Created on 24 July 2018

The writer of Hebrews wrote that God is a "rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6). This language should prompt us to ponder the blessings of God, specifically what God's rewards actually look like. Initially, one might expect wealth or an easy life as a divine reward. However, from the context, we learn that God's rewards look quite different than many of the temporal blessings people often covet. Join us for this episode of Words of Grace to learn more!

In our last broadcast, we considered biblical topics which were both monergistic (God only) and synergistic (God plus man). In this episode of Words of Grace, we continue our study of things synergistic, namely, taking up our crosses to follow Christ. To a first century person in the Roman Empire, the cross was an unforgettable symbol of shame and death. How does this translate into the Christian walk? Listen to learn more.

Monergism and Synergism

Monergism or synergism? To many believers, those words may "sound like Greek." But these rarely used terms are simply defined and understood. Monergism refers to something that is the work of one alone (mono). Synergism is the work of more than one together. 

Is our salvation monergistic or synergistic? What about discipleship or mortification? In this broadcast, Pastor Winslett speaks to biblical concepts which are monergistic and also synergistic.

Sad as it is, sometimes Christians fall from their steadfastness. When this happens, what does it mean? Generally speaking, the loudest voices among Christian leaders would insist upon one of two realities: Either a person who falls loses their salvation, or they never had it to begin with. Popular as either of those ideas are, what does the Bible specifically say about this issue? Join us for a biblical examination of this concept.

Of the most important and fundamental theological concepts, the doctrine of the Trinity ranks supreme. That is, the Godhead is a tri-unity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. In this message, we consider the fact that there is a perfect synergy between the three persons of the Godhead. This is depicted clearly in the ministry of Jesus Christ, but is also a factor in our daily lives and even our eternal salvation.

As Paul concludes his epistle to the church at Ephesus, he ends it with one final appeal: Pray for me. Incarcerated at the time, you would expect Paul to request prayer for his release. Or perhaps, an ease to his sufferings. But rather than pray for his freedom or comfort, Paul simply asks that they pray for his opportunity and ability to preach the gospel.

The Joy of Singing

Created on 27 March 2018

In today's radio program, from our continued series on the book of Ephesians, we consider the concept of an "altered state of perception." In specific, Paul exhorts us not to be "drunk with wine," but rather to be "filled with the Spirit" by singing praise to God. What an interesting contrast! The abuse of alcohol changes the mood and perspective of a drunkard, but generally for the worse. However, singing praise to God, lifts our spirits and alters our perception to the positive, unto righteousness and holiness!

One of the more interesting metaphors Paul used was "putting off the old man" and "putting on the new man."

We consider this expression in today's edition of Words of Grace.
