    Inheriting What Cannot Be Lost - Part 2 of 3

    Inheriting What Cannot Be Lost - Part 2 of 3

    Heaven is real, and we should act like it! Of course the idea of people floating around on clouds playing harps is ridiculous. But so is the popular notion that Heaven contains whatever makes you happy, as well as the view that it might be different for different people; "Heaven is a state of mind," to the fiction writers. No, Heaven is an actual address, with definable qualities. Hebrews chapter 12 reveals some of the people and things we'll find there - including "the Judge of All."

    Inheriting What Cannot Be Lost - Part 1 of 3

    Mount Sinai was touchable - but you were forbidden to touch it! Beginning at Hebrews 12:18 the writer contrasts 2 mountains - Sinai and Zion - obviously representing the 2 Covenants. And what a contrast it is! He seems to be piling on one last great metaphor to show the futility of the Old, and the fulfillment in the New. But there's more in this passage, and Pastor Jim will help us dig it out. His sermon is called, Inheriting What Cannot be Lost.

    Graced To Be Gracious - Part 3 of 3

    Graced To Be Gracious - Part 3 of 3

    Does the message of grace make people careless? Sometimes it does. By chapter 12 the author of Hebrews has made his main point: It's absurd to go back to the Law and works-righteousness - a system that did not work. The Jewish Christians needed to go forward in faith. But, as we know, that can sometimes feel like there are no guardrails. The writer reminds us that we're still dealing with the same God; the holy one! Here's Jim to conclude, Graced to be Gracious.

    Graced To Be Gracious - Part 2 of 3

    Esau wanted a mulligan! We've all been there - realized that we not only made the wrong decision, but we made it for stupid and self-indulgent reasons. And now we're stuck with the consequences. Well, Jacob's brother Esau was the poster-boy for selling your destiny to serve your appetite, and living to regret it. Are there Esaus in the church? Is there one in the mirror? And what do we do about that? Jim is in Hebrews 12 for Part 2 of, Graced to be Gracious.

    Graced To Be Gracious - Part 1 of 3

    Some responsibilities are more important than others. A lot of people think of the Bible as one big rule book. They believe that, if they were to open it, they would find "Thou Shalt Nots" up and down every page. Well, there's a lot more to Scripture than that, as we've seen even in our study of the book of Hebrews. But there are some imperatives, of course. And when the Maker, in His Instruction Manual, writes, "See to it...," then we'd better see to it! Jim will pray to open his sermon, Graced to be Gracious.

    Trusting Through The Tough Times - Part 2 of 2

    Trusting Through The Tough Times - Part 2 of 2

    If my Father loves me, why is He allowing all of this to happen? Christians understand that we're not just bumping around in a cosmic pinball machine. God is working out a plan that includes us. It's especially important to remember that when we're victims of persecution, as the early Jewish Christians were. The letter addressed to them spelled out the meaning behind their hardships. On Friday Jim gave an illustration from the life of Job, and another from the Upper Room. He'll give us one more picture today.

50 years of seeking knowledge

Pastor Jim has been striving to discover and reveal knowledge from scripture for many decades. If you seek spiritual “meat“, this podcast is for you. Along with Charles Spurgeon, RC Sproul, JI Packer, C Stanley and Francis Schaefer, Jim Custer is clearly all of gods instruments for discerning scripture. (Even though he’s tried to retire in three different times). He delivers in a way that entices and motivates. Add it to your growth routine.
