Let me say thank you right upfront. You'll see why when you read this comment from Sherrill.
I heard your broadcast today and just want to say thank you so much for your brilliant clarification in your explanation of Hebrews 6:4-6! I've been a believer for 42 years, but that passage has always baffled me and I was never satisfied with any interpretation of it until I heard yours. It was so freeing!! And it turned what used to be a disturbing piece of scripture into the best news ever! Thank you guys, all of you, for your ministry and faithfulness to proclaim the freeing truth of the gospel. God bless you!
The freeing truth of the Gospel… I love that phrase. Thank you for making it possible to deliver the freedom of the gospel to Sherrill through the Basic Gospel radio broadcast.
Sherrill's comment points to the unique way the gospel speaks to individual hearts. People come to the program with all types of problems and concerns. Some are frightened by life's circumstances. Others are lonely and insecure. Other's still are confused, or as in Sherrill's case, baffled.
Regardless of the issue, there is nothing more relevant than the word of God. Because there is nothing people long for more than the truth of God's love and grace.
As Sherrill wrote above, until the truth set her free she was held hostage by a misunderstanding—confusion that caused her to live in the grip of fear and doubt.
Your gifts provided her real hope and real answers. Your gifts to Basic Gospel reach thousands of others around the world as well.
Thanks to you, the freeing truth of the Gospel is empowering them to live the abundant life Jesus promised (John 10:10).
This makes everyday on the radio broadcast an adventure...knowing that the truth is going to set someone free.
The world is filled with problems. Poverty. Oppression. Crime. And the list goes on and on. I wish we could right every one. That day will come when Jesus returns. In the meantime, what we can do is speak to the problems of the heart. As Richard likes to say, "The most important solution is internal."
Peter put it this way—
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. (2 Peter 1:3, 4 ESV)
Jesus Christ, and him alone, is the only answer to life's core problems. When people hear the good news something grabs their hearts and elevates their vision from our world to eternity.
Thank you for making this kind of difference in people's lives. Thank you for investing in the freeing truth of the Gospel, and for helping believers face life with the deep conviction that nothing can separate them from the love of God in Christ.
Last month on the broadcast, Bob Davis ended each program this way; "We tell the story as often as we can… to as many people as we can… so that hearts can rest in the forgiveness, life and freedom that is theirs in Christ Jesus."
Your gift today will keep the story going out through Basic Gospel.
As our thanks for your gift this month, I want to send you our latest CD-audio teaching product, Hard Passages. Richard and I provide Jesus-focused, life giving answers to some of the hardest passages in the Bible, verses that have caused much fear and confusion over the history of Christianity. You'll discover that, in Christ, there is no need for fear or confusion. This CD would be an ideal gift for someone who is plagued by doubt.
Let's make the month of November the best month of outreach ever!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Basic Gospel.
Yours in Christ,
