December 26, 2015
Well, Christmas is now over, except for those who may be celebrating over the weekend. I hope you and your family had or are having the opportunity to get together and celebrate the human birth of our Lord Jesus.
As I sat down to decide what to include in this post-Christmas look Inside the Studio, nothing came to mind. I did think about a year-in-review edition, but then that Philippians 3:13 passage popped into my head, where Paul said, “Forgetting what lies behind”, etc. So a retrospective was out.
But then, there were these…
We had a call from Ali, a gentleman in Buffalo, NY, who described himself as a non-practicing Muslin. He was complimentary of this ministry as one that teaches love and had some interesting things to say concerning the teachings of the Quran concerning Jesus.
Let’s listen to that conversation … and Bob Christopher’s post-call comments…
A call from Gregory who listens on The Word FM in the Dallas area concerning biblical obedience. What does it really mean?
An encouraging conversation with Harold from Paris … Texas, that is.
As 2015 draws to a close, I pause to say thank you to those of you who give so that others might hear the most essential message of life — the love, grace, and life of the Lord Jesus Christ. He obviously could not have completed His mission had He never experienced human birth. But as Paul said so eloquently, without the resurrection we are to be pitied of all men, and are still in our sins (a paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:19).
It’s the message of life. His life. Eternal life (John 3:16). This is life that can never be taken away, lost, or destroyed. Otherwise, it would not be “eternal”. What God does cannot be undone.
1 John 5:11-13 (NASB) puts it this way:
And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life (emphasis added).
With that hope in mind, we are asking those of you who have benefitted from what you have heard through Basic Gospel to join us at this year-end time to help get the word out so that others might hear. It’s the message the whole world needs to hear.
