||CleanAn Old Story with a New Meaning, Part 4||As we continue to look at the story that Paul allegorizes in Galatians chapter 4, we’ll see that he wants to help the Galatians understand that they are trying in vain to get salvation from the law, when the law was never designed to give us our salvation. We can’t get salvation by the things that we do. And that’s Paul’s entire argument—salvation is by grace alone.||2/21/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAn Old Story with a New Meaning, Part 3||As we continue to look at this old story with a new meaning, Pastor Ford will remind us that Biblical hermeneutics follows a simple formula—when the literal sense makes plain sense, seek no other sense, lest you abandon common sense and end up with nonsense.||2/20/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAn Old Story with a New Meaning, Part 2||In Galatians chapter 4, Paul takes the Old Testament story about Abraham, Sarah, and Isaace and allegorizes it. Today we’re going to go into this passage and see what timeless truths Paul is trying to get us to understand by giving this old story a new meaning.||2/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanTreasured Truth Weekend - The Perfect Storm, Part 2||Have you ever wondered why you have to keep going through the same storms in life? Whether it’s the same relationship storm, financial storm, or job storm—sometimes life’s storms can seem redundant and wearisome. But Pastor Ford suggests that we keep having to go through the same storms simply because we’re not learning from them.||2/17/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAn Old Story with a New Meaning, Part 1||The Law and Grace don’t mix. But the Apostle Paul was having a hard time communicating that fact to the Galatian believers and convincing them it was the truth. So, he took a story from the Old Testament and allegorized it, giving it a new twist that helped them to understand. To hear how Paul used an old story with a new meaning in his letter to the Galatians, join us for today’sTreasured Truth.||2/16/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Importance of Sound Doctrine, Part 3||The Apostle Paul set an example for us when he was addressing the Galatian believers about the errors of their doctrine. He equated the process to the “travails of childbirth” as he struggled to help them understand. His ultimate goal was see the likeness of Christ formed in them. So, we can learn from Paul as we seek to assist our own fellow believers who may have accepted false doctrines that don’t line up with the truth found in God’s Word.||2/15/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Importance of Sound Doctrine, Part 2||How do you reach someone with the truth of God’s Word, when they are confused about a doctrinal issue and believing an error? You have to start by showing them your genuine concern for them and allowing them to sense your heart of compassion for them. If you don’t start there, then they may confuse you with the “doctrine police” and you may miss the opportunity to help them understand the truth.||2/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Importance of Sound Doctrine, Part 1||As we consider the importance of having sound doctrine, Pastor Ford will explain that we have to concerned about the truth of the gospel and that we maintain the clarity and truth of it. But we also have to have a heart. And we have to lovingly correct those around us who may have been duped by doctrinal error.||2/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Threefold Appeal, Part 7||Pastor Ford will remind us today that we need to become familiar with the truth. Why? Because there will be people who will come to us with errors in their teaching. They will come with heresy and lies. And we have to be able to distinguish between the God’s truth and man’s errors.||2/12/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanTreasured Truth Weekend - The Perfect Storm, Part 1||Pastor Ford explains that the inactivity of God does not mean that God is not sovereign. Just because God’s not saying anything to you and just because He’s not moving in your life right now, doesn’t mean that He has abandoned you. Join us as we begin a new message on the perfect storm.||2/10/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Threefold Appeal, Part 6||As believers, we sometimes can get bogged down in our journey toward maturity, daunted by the perception that we need to abide by a lot of rules. But Pastor Ford will remind us today that we should concentrate on remembering how it was when we first got saved. Do you remember the freedom that you felt and the burden that was lifted off of you? Do you remember when you realized your sins were cast into the depths of the sea? Remember those things and you will remember the true liberty you have in Christ.||2/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Threefold Appeal, Part 5||As we seek to understand our motivation to love and serve God and our fellow believers, we must realize that the Devil’s going to shoot at us to try and prevent us from striving to reach our goal. And according to Pastor Ford, if the Devil can’t mess your church up from the outside, then what will he do? He’ll join it! So, we don’t need to give him the bullets to shoot at us. He already knows that if he can divide us, he can defeat us.||2/8/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Threefold Appeal, Part 4||Have you ever considered why as believers, we do what we do? Why do we want to know Christ more clearly? For His sake. Why do we want to love Him more dearly? For His sake. And why do we want to follow Him more nearly? It’s all for His sake!||2/7/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Threefold Appeal, Part 3||When we realize that a fellow believer is trying to earn their salvation by obeying rules, we need to emphasize for them the freedom that they have in Jesus Christ. We should encourage them to not let anyone bind them or limit their freedom, by having them do things that the Bible doesn’t tell them to do. So, join us to find out what it means for someone to oppose themself as a believer on today’s Treasured Truth.||2/6/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Threefold Appeal, Part 2||As we continue to consider the three-fold appeal we find in Galatians 4, Pastor Ford will explain that surface level Christianity robs us of our greater power to be able to live the Christian life. And the greater power we are seeking doesn’t come through obeying rules. Rules are not the end. They are the means by which we reach the end goal, which is always greater fellowship with Christ.||2/5/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanTreasured Truth Weekend - You Can Do This, Part 6||Pastor Ford reminds us that despite our failings, we can end up better than we started out. We can never go too low to escape God’s grace. The most important thing is for us to seek to know Him and Him alone. He will help us do what He’s designed for us to do.||2/3/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Threefold Appeal, Part 1||As we begin a new study in Galatians, Pastor Ford will ask us how far will we go to help a brother or sister who has strayed from the truth of the Bible. What does it mean, really, to bring someone back to the truth, when they have forsaken and abandoned the way of grace and are going in the way of the law?||2/2/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAsk Pastor Ford||Today Pastor Ford will take time to answer several listener questions on a variety of topics, which include whether or not it’s a sin to get a tattoo, what to do if you’re uncertain you should remain in a romantic relationship, and what it means in scripture when we read about “the keys to the kingdom.”||2/1/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWhen I'm Sorry Isn't Enough, Part 3||We have to remember that our attitude is crucial when we are seeking forgiveness from another person. People generally judge the seriousness of our asking forgiveness based on the way our words come from our mouths. If we don’t approach the conversation with humility, then it will definitely complicate the whole process.||1/31/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWhen I'm Sorry Isn't Enough, Part 2||As we continue to look at seeking forgiveness from others, Pastor Ford will explain how we often will make excuses for ourselves. But he will remind us that Jesus died for our sins, not for our excuses. And we need to remember what we’re talking about when we seek forgiveness—it’s not what we feel about what we did to the other person. Rather, it’s about how they felt about what we did to them.||1/30/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
