In this episode we explore Romans 9:30-10:21, the tragic result of Israel’s unbelief and the resulting spread of the Gospel through the world. We explore why Jesus is referred to as both a stumbling stone and a secure foundation.
I’ve got some really great neighbours. We have mowed each other’s lawns, shovelled driveways, helped plant flowers, and helped each other renovate. Truthfully, I really want to see my neighbours in eternity because I’m sure it would lead to a decade long neighbourhood BBQ on streets of Gold. I’m going to guess that you have some great neighbours you want to see in eternity, too. So, what do we need to do about the Gospel to ensure we will all see each other forever?
With four young children there is always a mouth with a missing tooth in my house. It reminds me of when I was a kid, writing notes to the Tooth Fairy. For me, a quarter for a tooth just wasn’t enough, so I was leaving notes asking for bigger bills to buy large Star Wars toy sets, G.I.Joe toy sets, bikes… you name it. Honestly, what was the Tooth Fairy thinking leaving a quarter?! Yet, with every tooth I received the same yield, a single quarter under my pillow. It’s like the Tooth Fairy couldn’t read, or was too busy for my notes. My belief in the Tooth Fairy let me down because she has no power. Actually, faith or belief (whichever word you’d prefer to use) has no power, either. There is only one source of power that truly has the ability to help us, and it’s vitally important we know the truth, rather than a fairytale, so that we can get connected with it.
