Agape Chapel OC is committed to teaching the Bible - chapter by chapter, verse by verse - until the coming of the Lord. Pastor Terry Reynolds takes a deep-dive into the Word in each episode of Agape Radio.
2 Chronicles 1-2 Part 4
God has placed a calling on the lives of every person in this world. It may not be the calling of a pastor or church worker, and some may not even accept that calling. However, your calling is unique to you and requires faith that only you can grow. In 2 Chronicles, Solomon knew his calling came only through staying connected to the almighty God. In today's teaching, Pastor Terry continues his study into the initial records of the noble life of Solomon and how we can adopt these principles into our daily lives.
2 Chronicles 1-2 Part 3
Unlike the story of Aladdin's genie, God does not appear out of a rusty lamp and eagerly waits for us to initiate our three wishes. If that were the case, would we still lean upon an omnipotent God after satisfying those numerous carnal requests? Instead, God is wanting us to consistently seek a daily relationship with Him. Today, Pastor Terry introduces us to a man in 2 Chronicles that seeks the heart of God and gains the wisdom to lead a kingdom.
2 Chronicles 1-2 Part 2
Some of the best ideas in life come from just waiting on the Lord. In scripture, God said he would hear our prayers and give us that insight into some of life's biggest challenges we face. It's exactly what he did for Solomon, one of the wisest men in the Bible, as he begins his work on the temple. In today's study, Pastor Terry continues in 2 Chronicles as Solomon begins his construction and what would be one of the biggest undertakings in the Old Testament, and ultimately in God's bigger plan for redemption.
2 Chronicles 1-2 Part 1
How close is your relationship with God? Would you say it is intertwined with God's heart and desire for your life? Committing our lives in service to God is a modern-day consecration unto Him. We are making a commitment to keep our days and weeks dedicated to His will. Consecration to God is declaring something to be sacred as an offering to Him. In today's teaching, Pastor Terry begins his study into Solomon's consecration and the plans set in motion for Solomon's Temple.
1 Chronicles 29 Part 2
God isn’t surprised by our wicked acts or our good deeds. He knows our hearts and our thoughts and plans before we do. As Jesus illustrated through the example of the poor widow giving her small offering and the rich man giving a small fortune, the rich man had an excess and gave a relatively small portion - mostly for the show - while the poor widow gave everything she had with joy and gratitude. As Pastor Terry will point out, her gift reflected a heart that was rich in faith and close to God.
1 Chronicles 29 Part 1
Every good thing we have is from God. He created this world and everything in it. Every breath you take is a gift from Him. Every minute, every meal, every relationship – all of this is from Him. All too often we try to give God as little as we can, clinging to our time, energy, and resources. As Pastor Terry will explain in today’s message, our approach should be to give back as much as we can to God – not out of obligation, but out of gratitude for His redeeming grace and the love He demonstrated in Christ.
