Episode 351

Angus Buchan • From the television series "Grassroots with 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.”

Angus reminds us that if there was one man in the bible who had a reason to be bitter it was Job. He was a very wealthy and prosperous man and he lost everything but despite that, he refused to give up his belief in God. When you are going through tough and testing times, don’t allow bitterness to creep into your life but rather press into the Lord and He will bless you.

Don't ever give up

Episode 387 • Angus Buchan

Reading from Genesis 32:24 - 28 Angus encourages us that even if it seems like there is no end to a problem or if you have been waiting for an answer from the Lord, don’t give up because you don’t know how close you are to the victory. So if you feel like giving up remember what happened to Jacob who wouldn’t give up until he received the blessing, and keep going.

Good company

Episode 386 • Angus Buchan

In this episode of Grassroots, Angus talks to us about the importance of keeping good company. Whether we like it or not, we are influenced by our friends. If they are always moaning about the country, or the economy or the weather, or whatever, then instead of being hopeful and saying, “ But God” in any situation and acknowledging that He is in control, you will become negative just like them. So stay away from bad company that corrupts and seek out people who have a heart of for Jesus. Put your trust in Him and be blessed as you listen to this message.
