Not What Goes In
Episode 552 • Angus Buchan
Angus encourages us today to speak life over eachother! Matt 15:16-20 'So Jesus said, “Are you also still without understanding? Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.'
Episode 550 • Angus Buchan
Angus encourages us to look to Father God for the plan and vision that He has for us. God will give confirmation, and faith to take the step. Deuteronomy 1:6-8 “The Lord our God spoke to us in Horeb, saying: ‘You have dwelt long enough at this mountain. Turn and take your journey, and go to the mountains of the Amorites, to all the neighboring places in the plain, in the mountains and in the lowland, in the South and on the seacoast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river, the River Euphrates. See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—to give to them and their descendants after them."
Watch Your Tongue
Episode 545 • Angus Buchan
Today we are reminded that our tongues hold power - they have the power to build up and the power to break down. We choose how it is to be used. James 3:6-8 "And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison."
Episode 544 • Angus Buchan
We can show God's love to others by having a gracious and grateful attitude. Dont take people for granted, appreciate one another. Matthew 25:40 "And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."
Episode 543 • Angus Buchan
Angus encourages us to not Judge people but rather be renewed by God so that we can help others. Matthew 7:1-5 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye."
Episode 542 • Angus Buchan
God does not like it when Christians live a compromised life. Revelation 3:16 "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth." Revelation 3:16-17 The Message “I know you inside and out, and find little to my liking. You’re not cold, you’re not hot—far better to be either cold or hot! You’re stale. You’re stagnant. You make me want to vomit. You brag, ‘I’m rich, I’ve got it made, I need nothing from anyone,’ oblivious that in fact you’re a pitiful, blind beggar, threadbare and homeless."
Episode 541 • Angus Buchan
Revenge belongs to the Lord. Angus tells us to pray for those who persecute you, because one day they will come face to face with Father God and have to account for their actions. Angus reminds us that we live in a fallen world and God does not bring any bad thing apon us. Revelation 6:9-11 "When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed."
Episode 540 • Angus Buchan
Expectation is to have belief that something will happen. Where is our expectation lying? Today we are encouraged to place our expectation in God and Him alone. He will never let you down. Psalm 62:5 "My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him."
Episode 539 • Angus Buchan
Angus encourages us to allow God to shape and mould us as we press into Him. Spend time with Him and be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Luke 22:31-35 "And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
The Choice Is Yours
Episode 537 • Angus Buchan
God gives us choices in life and we have to live with the consequences of those choices. Let's get back to basics and choose God. Deuteronomy 30:19-20 "I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today: I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. Choose life so that you and your children will live. And love God, your God, listening obediently to him, firmly embracing him."
Believe In Yourself
Episode 536 • Angus Buchan
Angus asks "How do you feel about yourself at the moment?" We need to remind ourselves of how God sees us everyday so that we don't start to believe the lies that the devil whispers to us. Colossians 1:27 "To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." 1 Peter 5:7 "casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you."
Episode 535 • Angus Buchan
Angus encourages us to spend time with God first thing in our day. When we give God the first fruits of our day the rest of our day will better and we will achieve more. Matthew 6:21 "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:33 "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."
Episode 534 • Angus Buchan
Angus encourages us to take responsibility as believers. Soften your hearts and take care of eachother, God will honour you for it. Deuteronomy 22:1-4 “You shall not see your brother’s ox or his sheep going astray, and hide yourself from them; you shall certainly bring them back to your brother. And if your brother is not near you, or if you do not know him, then you shall bring it to your own house, and it shall remain with you until your brother seeks it; then you shall restore it to him. You shall do the same with his donkey, and so shall you do with his garment; with any lost thing of your brother’s, which he has lost and you have found, you shall do likewise; you must not hide yourself. “You shall not see your brother’s donkey or his ox fall down along the road, and hide yourself from them; you shall surely help him lift them up again."
