When we are loved by God we are more able to love the people around us. Angus implores us to exercise genuine compassion toward others. Luke 15:20 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him."

Restitution

Episode 351 • Angus Buchan

Restitution is the restoration of something lost or stolen to its proper owner. Luke 19:2-10 "Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.” Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.” And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

We must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus! He will never leave or forsake us. Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Psalm 34:19 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all."

The death of an unbeliever

Episode 348 • Angus Buchan

Today Angus is speaking about a tough subject - the death of an unbeliever. The only way you can be saved is if you are born again. We need to tell people about the salvation offered through Jesus Christ. John 14:6 'Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."' Ezekiel 33:11 "Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’"
