Anchorpoint Radio promotes Gospel awareness on 58 radio frequencies weekly across Canada as well as on satellite TV. Our mission is to provoke deeper thought upon life's key issues and to offer the only sure answer to man's deepest need - the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This week’s message is a comparison of the atheistic attitudes of today and what we read in Romans Chapter 1. Mankind's unbelieving response to truth is revealed in all its fullness there. Despite 24/7 revelation from God, people still choose to reject it, suppress it, or change it into something else. There's more to the statement, "I don't believe there is a God" than meets the eye. It's more than an intellectual difficulty - the will is very much involved. In fact, despite all these atheistic arguments, God makes one pronouncement - they are without excuse. The evidence is there for all to see and investigate. We trust that today's message will start you on a quest for truth - Biblical truth - and that you will discover the Lord himself who longs for you to come into a saving relationship with Him.
What Shall It Profit a Man?
What is the most valuable thing in the whole world to you? Well, the Lord Jesus Christ gives us a heavenly perspective on this question. And He wants us to imagine for a moment that we own the whole world. Now that would be quite a thing, wouldn't it? To own the whole world and have everything at our disposal! Yet, there is something far greater in value. Listen to His question tonight, “What will it profit you, if you gain the whole world, and lose your own soul?" Yes, He considers your soul to be the most precious possession you have. Do you?
Burdens are Lifted at Calvary
If we asked you “Where are your sins?”, what would your answer be? Surely, you wouldn’t respond that you don’t have any sins. God says we all do – and if you’re honest, you would have to agree – totally. The Bible is clear on this description of us. And sins become heavier as time goes on – they accumulate, they get entangled. They make life complicated and messed up. What burdens they are! How can we ever get rid of them? Today’s message looks at the picture of sin in our lives as a heavy burden and the need to have that burden removed. Are you tired of carrying around this burden? Then, come to the Saviour. God had laid on Him the iniquity of us all!
White as Snow
There is a beautiful verse in Isaiah 1:18 and it says, “Come now, let us reason together”, says the Lord, “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” It’s no less than the Lord God of heaven who is speaking here and – imagine – He is wanting to reason with us - poor sinners. He is making an offer to provide us with a slate wiped clean in His sight. Ugly sins washed clean – as white as snow as it were. Is that not something that you would like?
Well, today’s message is a beautiful one as it centers on the place that God centers – it brings us to the cross of Calvary. The cross where the Lord Jesus Christ shed His precious blood for guilty sinners such as you and me. Does Calvary mean anything to you personally? Or is it nothing more to you than an event in history - something that happened to Jesus many years ago? Or does it mean EVERYTHING to you? We hope that it will – because it is the central focus of the Bible. The cross is why Christ came.
Are You Prepared to Meet God?
You know, as human beings, we all have the ability to look into the future somewhat, become aware of what just may happen to us and our loved ones, and make the necessary preparations. It’s the only wise thing to do. We often we prepare for things that MIGHT happen to us. What about things that surely WILL happen? Have you prepared for SPIRITUAL realities? For your day of departure from this life? For your ULTIMATE destiny? Wouldn’t you love to have such pressing questions settled once and for all? You can. God says you can. And you must. We trust that today’s word from the Bible will help you to be ready to meet God. To have your sins forgiven once and for all. Only then will you really start to live!
