Why did Jesus die? Why was he the perfect sacrifice? How could he bear crucifixion? How is the cross connected with salvation? What is the call of the cross? Phil Sanders observes, "One cannot look long at the cross and remain unmoved. The cross reveals the worst of men and the best of God. If we are ever to heal spiritually as individuals, as families, as a church, or as a country, we must come to the cross and obey the will of God." Jesus loved you enough to bring you out of death to life, out of sin to righteousness, and out of wrath to the blessing of eternal life. He paid the price for your sins and opened the door of salvation. No one has ever done so much for you. Jesus took your salvation personally. Do you?
"For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly...while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:6, 8)
"Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it" (Ecclesiastes 12:7)
What happens after we die? Will we be conscious? Will we be in a place of peace? or agony? After Life examines the soul's journey to its final destination. Will Jesus come again? How? When? Will our spirits live forever? What answers does the Bible provide? "Seek and you shall find." After Life guides us to search for the Lord's way to the home of the soul.
"I go to prepare a place for you...I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also" (John 14:2-3)
Let us offer to God acceptable worship. Hebrews 12:28
* Is God seeking worshipers who simply go through the motions? * Why should Christians differentiate between holy and common? * How does God distinguish between His desires and man's desires? * Should we worship to get or to give?
Some assemblies offer very little worship and a great deal of show. Sometimes what man wants overrides what God wills. God seeks people who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. We must take the holiness of God seriously.
Are you searching for authentic Christianity, the church of the Bible? How many religious organizations are out there waiting to be examined--all with different names, beliefs, and practices? Thousands! But how many churches did Jesus build? One! Join Phil Sanders, host of In Search of the Lord's Way, in a practical presentation of the church Jesus built long before the idea of denominationalism developed. Learn to identify the church that Jesus established, the one that still thrives only on the authority of the Bible. And remember, Christ's prayer for unity never compromises His truth. You will find Phil Sanders' observations in Christ's Glorious Church to be candid, yet kind and simple. Those who are looking for salvation without taking up a cross and following Jesus will be disappointed. They want a Savior but not a Lord. Our Lord and Savior breathed His last on a cruel cross, a sacrifice He made once for all for His glorious church. That church is the one and only authentic body of the saved--Christ's Glorious Church!
"What Must I Do?" Ask a dozen theologians that question: you'll likely get a dozen different answers. Ask God and you will only get one, always consistent with His previous answer. Phil Sanders discusses God's answer in a series of four sermons - plain, simple, and kind. The question is relevant and urgent now: "What Must I Do?" Open your Bible and give God a chance to communicate with your heart. Your soul's destiny is at stake.
Join Phil Sanders in four vital lessons designed for personal soul searching. As 19th century writer Josiah Gilbert Holland said, "The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on." Guard yourself from sin, seek salvation, and secure your destiny. Phil warns, "You can lose your car, your house, your health, or your life and still go to heaven. But if you lose your soul, you have lost everything."
