There is no more appropriate theme for the month of December than joy. So many are full of joy upon their salvation but lose it over time. Why? Because they've replaced the joy of the Lord with salvation by works. Joy comes from keeping our eyes on Jesus. He is our joy.

Today is a great day for ministries such as ours. It's known as #GivingTuesday. It's a chance for people to give their favorite charities and express their heart of thankfulness.

  • Romans 12:1-2 "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

We hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and was able to celebrate all we have to be thankful for. We can walk in God's grace, enjoy His love, and walk in true fellowship because of His grace toward us. So how do we give thanks and how do we truly worship God? In Philippians 3 Paul warns us to "Watch out for those dogs, those evildoers, those mutilators of the flesh. For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh..."

  • #GivingTuesday is tomorrow. We want you to participate in Giving Tuesday.

Hebrews 13:15

  • Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone of our listeners. It's a wonderful day to set apart and take stock of all that we have to be thankful for. Thankfulness in a believer's heart is really a manifestation of faith in Christ. A true thankfulness for all we have in and because of Jesus. Hebrews 13:15, 16 "Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased."
  • Jessie wants to know if this message concerning salvation through the finished work of Chirst is really true.

We find the greatest joy in life today in serving one another in love. It is truly love in action. And love in action is the most powerful form of worship. Bob is serving this week with Blue Skies Ministry in Florida. Blue Skies ministers to families whose kids have been diagnosed with cancer. The Blue Skies leadership and volunteers serve these families with love and help connect them to the New Covenant. That's why we're so grateful for Basic Gospel listeners who give of their resources to serve others in love ... you are serving by connecting people to the hope of the gospel, the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

I've always been fascinated by Revelation. There worship is described like nowhere else in Scripture. In chapter 4 and 5 John paints an incredible picture. "Day and night they never stop saying: 'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,' who was, and is, and is to come." "You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth."

  • June calls to say "Thank you" for the outreach to the veterans. https://basicgospel.net/vet/
  • Maria wants to know how we be perfect in Christ and yet still called sinners? Is this correct?

The people of Israel suffered for 400 years at the hands of the Egyptians. They were living in the wrong place, under the control of the wrong person, carrying out the wrong purpose. But God did not leave them there. Freedom was his plan. Just as the Israelites were delivered, Jesus Christ delivered you out of darkness. He set you free by unlocking the chains of sin and death that held you captive. Your hope of living life to the full in anchored to his power and presence in you. This hope trumps fear. And it silences all those legalistic voices, both internal and external, that say you can't handle freedom. Christ in you says you can!
